1. Simpler (no updating hardware/drivers or dealing with crashing/errors, etc.)
2. Prefer physical media (PC seems to be huge on Steam, I prefer a disc)

1) Games works right out of the box/digital
2) Friends and family plays on the Xbox/PS3
3) Great exclusive games that PC will never get
4) Don't need to spend $2,000 usd on a gaming PC when my console can play the same games for less
5) Local Coop/Split screen that are missing on PC
6) Community are bigger in online multiplayer games compared to PC
7) Majority of online games don't have hackers/cheaters that will aim bot you or shooting you through walls/see walls that are on PC
8) Developers tends to support the console way more than they do on the PC
9) No need to upgrade hardware every 6 months to a year or have to do some tweaks to get games to work
10) PC gaming is a niche platform that are full of pirates and cheapskates who rather wait for Steam sales than support a good game on the day of it's release that developers work so hard and put so much time into it and doesn't get the respect they deserve

I like both equally. I play Xbox with my friends and play SP games on PC...... with my 360 controller.
