My two biggest gripes about consoles are
1.) Lows res gaming
2.) Lack of upgradable hardware
Erm, even the Xbox 1 has support for 720p (1280x720) and 1080i (1920x1080) resolution, they just aren't used very often because rarely can a GF3 run in that high a res. If rumors are correct, then every Xbox 2 game should support 1080i (or possibly even 1080p with the right TV), as native support for HDTVs is planned. That's one of the reasons they're putting such a powerful video card in it.
