The PS3 might be hard to get power out of compared to the 360, but it doesn't have the sorts of issues you get from millions of possible hardware configurations.
Totally agree. This is the beauty of consoles TBH: You have 2 or 3 consoles, or sets of particular hardware, and this makes games easier to develop. With PC, you have to guess all of the hardware configs and hope for the best. Oh, and release patches and updates like crazy. Consoles release updates too, I know.

I'm not saying that one is better than the other, but I'm saying that both serve a purpose and dare I say that both can live in harmony!

Will somebody please close this thread already? We are beating a dead horse.
