Damn, that's pretty week. When the 360 came out, I believe the PC was already twice as powerful. Today the PC is something like 10 or 15 times more powerful. That means that six times more powerful than the 360 *in 2014* will still be about one quarter as powerful as a computer *today*. And who knows, maybe an one eighth as powerful as a computer in 2014. Sure wish they would stop making this commodity bargain crap. I mean, when games are $60 and the console lasts 8 years, why does it only have to cost $300? Such an important investment in a machine should be much more ($600-$900) so that you can make it more powerful... and when you're going to spend many thousands on games over the life of that machine, even $600 or $900 is a small amount of cash in comparison.
