True enough, but you missed the point. A lot of people just want PCs for surfing the Internet and using MS Office. Most average Joes who own a PC don't care about that stuff either. If you're thinking about going Blu-ray, the PS3 makes a compelling case because it's a good Blu-ray player, a good standard DVD player, and it's capable of being a media hub. You might not use it, but it's nice to know that the funcationality is there should you desire it.

Yes, because clearly Crysis, needing a supercomputer, was the best sold PC game of all time....
Replace Crysis with Half-Life at 9 million sales, and the argument still stands.
