we already had as perfect an era as it could have been inbetween the 5th and 6th gen. --- PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/
Better and cheaper games Accessories that aren't overpriced Much improved hardware reliability No external "power brick" crap Devs who take time to produce quality games instead of rushing new games out the door half finished with the intentions of selling the rest of the game later via DLC and microtransactions --- i report trolls
Although, I think they ran out after the GCN era, or at least started cutting back on how much they use, because I've had a DS just up and die over night, and the Wii had GPU issues, and is also known to corrupt 1019 block GCN memory cards.
No external "power brick" crap
So, you would instead have the power supply inside the console, adding to the amount of heat generated inside the system itself?
Yes, I am aware that is how PCs are built, but, 1. PCs are typically larger, with more open space inside, 2. are designed so the power supply is not directly over extremely heat sensitive components (yes, better design can be used, but can only go so far with such a confined space to work in, unless you want consoles that are bigger, not smaller like what a lot of people are demanding), and 3. if heat does cause hardware failure, it is cheaper to replace 1 component that failed than it is to replace an entire system. --- R.I.P.
