Why bother integrating media functions then? Its not supposed to do the things a computer can do...ok thats fine... why bother comparing them at all then...?
Gaming PC= Obselete? I think the definition of obsolete is "no longer in use or valid" or "outdated". If a high end pc outperforms the xbox 360 then how is it obsolete?
Anyway, given that price is not an issue the pc spanks the xbox 360 around the block...as there is nothing an xbox 360 can do that a pc cant do better.
Given that price is an issue, there is equality. Lets say you build a 7900gt pc for 1000$. The extra 600$ that you are paying is not wasted money, you are paying for essential tools that are needed by the average person, and the functionality that a pc brings.
Something else i thought of that no one else mentioned....
Average xbox 360 owner pays 400$ for xbox+mem card etc + some cash for a tv ( because they dont wanna burn their plasma) and then they pay an additional 800$ + monitor (or whatever those mainstream dells cost nowadays) for an every day use pc. Which is about the same (excluding the extra tv
) as paying 1000-1200$ for a high end pc with 7900gtx graphics. (dont tell me that isnt possible becase for 1200$ it is very possible if you do it right...)
Nevermind the fact that you only need one package with a pc... and having a crap pc and an xbox 360 = alot more loose cords....
So basically, their both good in some respects and as always... it comes down to preference... Either way your supporting microsoft.
