I'd sure like a console forum here.
It's not unfair to make parallels here at all, rage3d is the most obvious since it's also a graphics card forum. However, you can go anywhere you want, most people are so diehard to their own console that you'll see constant flamewars with any console discussion, whether it's rage3d, a console forum or usenet, it makes little difference. Putting it alongside a PC graphics card forum makes it even worse, as you'll get the PC diehards coming in and slating the console games.
