It's their way of feeling proud of spending $500 of $1000 on a graphics card. When next gen hits, we will have powerful consoles that will rival and exceed those cards. The difference will be that instead of paying $500 or $1000 every couple of years like the precious pc "mmaster race", we will pay $500 for 6-7 years. Just imagine you're seeing the Lord of the Rings cursed short dude asking for his precious whenever you see someone claiming the pc "master race".
This is why console gamers are peasants.
