TC, are you assuming that the 360 is better than the PS3?
you know, just ignore the fact that Skyrim runs like crap on the PS3, and it might not even get any of the DLC. Not to mention that 99% of games run better on the Xbox.

I don't care so much about the graphics, it would be nice, but I can live without it for the added comfort of playing on my Xbox.
This is kind of why I'm a console gamer. I know I could set things up to be able to play PC stuff with a controller in my comfy papasan, but why go through all the extra bother when the difference isn't too big a deal to me? I prefer simplicity. With my consoles, I know that games I buy for them will work on them. I'm sure if I came into a lot of money I'd buy myself a really nice gaming laptop, but for now, I'm fine with my crap PC and will stick to console gaming.
I play 360 over a PC because it's cheaper and simpler. I don't have to worry about updating drivers or sound things or any of that nonsense, I just put the game in, do a quick install and play without trying to tweak stuff all the time.

Hey man, your post just sounded like you were talking about pc's in general, not your own specific system. Sorry for sounding rude. In that case I can see where you're coming from. Still though, you can get a decent gaming rig for under 500$, that will give you better graphics than any console (ex: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883227437)
And yes, Steam is a fantastic service. Not sure why you think I'm so rich. In fact, I'm far from it. I'm on disability, so everything I have I've had to save up for. My gaming pc has been a work in progress over years. So trust me, I know what's cheaper, and Steam is by far (during Steam sales especially). Some examples : Sleeping Dogs (brand new)- 19.99$, Arkham City - 7.49$, Just Cause 2 - 3.49$, Crysis 2 - 11.99$, Fallout New Vegas Ultimate edition - 9.99$. Not to mention the plethora of quality FREE games, there's literally tons, in every genre. I'm not some rich pc elitest or anything, I'm just a broke ass gamer, who's been playing games since the 80's. What I've found over the years is that PC gives you the best bang for your buck, though I have nothing against consoles either. I just recently (finally) saved up enough for an Xbox 360, just so I could play NHL 13 (among other things) with this damned lockout going on.
The online service and community is superior. I don't know about you guys but I play video games for entertainment and nothing is more entertaining than listening to a bunch of mentally challenged people argue and fight over Xbox Live. No where else can you get an experience like that.
Compared to PC gaming? I prefer it because having to deal with system requirements is a pain. Compared to other consoles, I don't.
A place where things happen. Sometimes awesome things.
I buy most of my games on PC now because the prices cant be beat. Between Steam and now Amazon digital is so freaking cheap compared to Xbox and PSN digital. How about the humble bundle right now. Saints Row: The third, Metro 2033, Darksiders, Red Faction:Armageddon, and Company of Heroes for around 6 bucks. Try getting that value on console. I play my Xbox for Halo and COD with friends.
I like video games.
Kansas is full of good men, I don't want to be a good man. I want to be a great one.
