How so?

I still think it's mainly about the games, but admitably there are less and less exclusives.
Which in a way is good, gives more players a chance to play the games don't you think?
Better than sitting like some Gollum with "My precioussss exclusssivesss"

Give a man a fire and he's warm for the day. But set fire to him and he's warm for the rest of his life.

He's right, it was always about the hardware (games, as well). What it is now, however, is about non-gaming features . . . at least to the manufacturers, it appears. Until recently, graphics were the manufacturers' focal touting point.

how so. If your into the so called "console wars" then you are someone who has picked a side, a fanboy. Fanboys surrender undying allegiance to their console of choice and all games associated with it.

If your just a side lines spectator with no allegiance to any of them, then the console wars should be irrelevant to you.

lol This is pretty much what happens every time an exclusive is given away. I remember the crap-storm that was FF13 when it went multiplat.
