I couldn't give a fig about graphics, or the control scheme, or indeed how the PC is superior in almost every single way that matters. My concerns lie with consoles being closed platforms with a market controlled exclusively by their creators. As such we have to rely on them to recognise talent. The PC is a free market, anyone can create and publish a game, and they don't the permission of one monolithic corporation to do it.
Only time, I'm interested in buying console and playing is for meetings with my friends. I love drinking and gaming, it's more fun for me drunk playing some coop on couch, but on casual day, pc gaming is more rewarding to my self esteem.
Hear from the spirit-world this mystery:
Creation is summed up, O man, in thee;
Angel and demon, man and beast art thou,
Yea, thou art all thou dost appear to be!

Consoles are heading in the same direction of course, but they're not there yet. A benefit of their being behind the curve.

There are occasions though where there is just more of a playerbase for particular genres on console, so it makes sense to keep them to consoles, like fighting games or Japanese rpgs.
No matter how much you have to drink, Rayman's raving rabbids just isn't the same on the PC...
What do you people who hold the fear that Valve will snatch away all your Steam games do? All I do on Steam is buy games, and play them (without hacks). Even if you do get caught hacking, you just get locked out of that one game, and even then only the multiplayer component I think. They don't take your entire account away (they should though).
I'm just trying to think of the scenario where you would unknowingly do something that would result in the termination of your Steam account. As far as I'm concerned, I own all my Steam games, because I know I will never do anything to have them taken from me. Even if there were a good chance of having a game taken, I'd still rather take that risk than own a sub-par version of the same game on console.
"game sales for consoles destroys pc games completely why do u think they are so cheap on steam lol."

Only reason I regret not having a console is red dead redemption
I guess that's your money to waste, then. Won't stop me from mocking you for it, tho, and I'll continue judging consoles on the fact that they're tiny, closed PCs that can't do things as well as the PC I already own.
