I'm pretty sure the only valid statement

"I just can't be bothered and I'm okay with this".

Well about 3 years ago console gaming began to get so stale and having seen so many great games that would never see a console release, I got a gaming PC ... and haven't looked back since then.... Though every now an then I turn on my 360 or PS3 to play some of my older games, and I just shake my head at the fps, slow loading times, lack of customization, and the decent but not great graphics.

You fall into the same category as the other posters, where you believe that gaming is about the graphics.

Stopped reading there because you didn't bother to read my post completely. If you bothered to you would see graphics are merely one of the MANY advantages to PC gaming.

You want pro's and cons? Right then, here's my earlier post (for which I have added one of your points to). It gives a much better illustration on the point you are trying to paint:

To put things in another light:

Benefits of PC gaming
- Better gaming performance
- Generally cheaper games
- A larger list of titles
- A better community for game modifications and extensibility.

Benefits of Console Gaming
- Completely Wireless in all respects
- Play in a shared environment
- Generally much larger displays
- Portable
- Cheaper machine (than PC)
- Bigger exclusives
- A more streamlined experience : You can just put the game in and know it works
- A universal account (rather than a Steam Account, Origin Account, Games for Windows Account, etc)
- The experience is managed by Sony/Microsoft, rather than the publishers

I think I should speak more about that final point, since it is quite important. Having the console control the experience is significantly better than the publishers. Here are some examples of DRM imposed by publishers that I've had to endure in the past on the PC:

- A fixed number of activations that is actually possible to use up if you change PC rigs, and therefore possibly meaning you can't even play your game

- Always online DRM, even on single player games, that automatically forces you out of the game should you ever lose your internet connection, even for a moment.

- The force installation of third party programs that persistently monitor your gaming (effectively spyware) to ensure that you're playing legal copies.

I haven't up switched to the PC scene for two reasons:
1.) I just don't have the money to invest in a PC on a student budget.
2.) The PS3 has some of my favorite games that I love to play on it i.e. Ryū ga Gotoku, Metal Gear Solid... but mostly for Ryū ga Gotoku. I love that series :)

PC has no games... That I want to play.

What about Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, Grand Theft Auto series, Mass Effect series, Skyrim, NBA 2K13, Civilization V, The Sims 3, Splinter Cell, etc..?

Do you not like any of these games? There's no way you can only like PS3 exclusives and hate all the multiplatform games.

those games you mentioned are basically console games that ported to PC later after the testing finished.
So, I prefer console than PC.

Low capability of my PC is also an issue :D
Don't know what to write so this should be enough

Well, it may look strange, but all this screen tearing (BTW, its not a glitch, its appear, because some games on consoles didnt have Vsync function ), FPS drop and blurry graphics didnt bother me.
Maybe because i am still play SNES\PSX\PS2 games sometime, and its really hard to impress me by graphics ? :)
But i am play some PC games - strategy and old \ indie RPG - which there is no on consoles.

Friends are PC users.
PC is WAAAAAY more hackable (Microsoft/Windows is HORRID).
I like the PS# community.
I'd have to MAJORLY upgrade or replace my current PC, which will be WAAAY more expensive than buying the new PS4 when it comes out.
