I never owned a console personally. I once borrowed one for a week to beat Diddy Kong Racing but that's about all there is. So I'm PC gamer since my ATARI and Amiga times.

That's one reason for me not to own a console.

So while a PC gamer may have to upgrade her video card in order to play game X, a console gamer face a situation where you have buy another console altogether.
And another.

Plus my video card can be used for Photoshop, video editing, as well as other high-end games.
And the third one.

The point is, I don't own a PC to play games, I own a PC and can play games with it. And it's just like with any console...I connect it to my TV and plug a bunch of controller pads (original PS2 in my case) in, and -- eh violina!

Also, my notebook is way more portable than any XBox or PS3.
