    well they do have the tiny keyboard that they sell for messaging purposes.. not sure how much it costs off the top of my head.

    not to mention they have adapters that allow you to play with a mouse and keyboard

    First off, the PC has not been the primary gaming console in a long itme, if ever. Console game sales are far and away above PC game sales.

    As far as PC game sales dying, people have been predicting the death of PC gaming for a long, long time. It has it's cycles, and has some bad years, but there are things that can be done on PCs that just can not be easily done on a console (yet). Also factor in the cost of entry into the market. With the current (and past) gens of consoles, you have to pay the console maker for rights to make your game. The PC world does not have that restriction at all. That factor alone will keep PC gaming alive for years to come.

    PC gaming will never die.

    I'll just say that the PC will always offer things that consoles can't provide, or aren't willing to provide with respect to gaming.

    IMO the PC still offers, better online, better graphics, better control, and more flexibility to do with a game what you want. What PC gamers call modding - which I may add has been around a loooooooooong time - is called hacking by Nintendo. The PS3 is going to allow UT3 mod downloads through it's service from what I hear, but we'll see how that turns out.

    The only point you have wrong is that you HAVE to upgrade a system. You can run really great framerates and resolutions for about 4 years. The last time a game like Crysis happened was like...Quake III.

    Until I get an RTS, I'm liking my comp.

    people make out that the upgrading is like walking into a gunfight with a knife... it isn't like that at all their are up grades to make the games better thats what they do so you are always getting the best bang for you buck... next thing is sometimes they do cost a fair whack of money BUT personal i upgrade my comp as frequently as i buy a new console maybe a bit more but thats only because of that i mentioned before about the fact that it continues to get better and betters in PC gaming...

    Gamers buy consoles but everyone has a PC these days. People who work a lot with computers and like to play an occasional videogame would probably play on their PC since it's there anyway.

    I think the console hype will be over in two years when the graphic capabilities of 360 and PS3 are no longer the best. PC gaming would be more popular again and people would wait for the next generation of consoles to begin.
