It annoys the living fothermucking crap out of me when people who know nothing about technology/hardware openly throw their lack of knowledge on people who do know what they are talking about. And then they still argue with you.
Its technology like Dual Asynchronous Compute Engines (ACE), that will make consoles fast. Its tech like that that PC cant have. PCs will always be graphically better and more powerful, but consoles can afford to have slightly less hardware specs because of it being a closed system only mainly meant for gaming therefore can have its own special proprietary way of working with games.
Consoles aren't only meant for gaming. It's sad, I know. But... Stupid Microsoft and Sony are trying to turn their consoles into all-in-one media hubs. They want their consoles to be the one-stop box which is STUPID. That is ONE thing I can credit Nintendo for. They pretty much ONLY care about gaming and are just now allowing things like Netflix to work....
Consoles should ONLY be capable of gaming. I'm talking... you turn it on, and it's immediately asking for you to insert a game. You sign into the online service and THAT'S IT. You play a game, and turn it off.
