Half the kids playing consoles walk around in 80 dollar jeans so don't talk about money. Besides. When you buy console you get a gaming system. When you buy a computer you get a gaming system plus about 342389054792398 tools too.
So?

There are some good console games out there. Why cut off a whole whack of the games out there just because they don't run on a PC?

I go where the games are. Sometimes they are on PC, sometimes they aren't.

that's a gross overexaggeration and you know it. anyway, their parents might be willing to buy them a console that costs $200-$300 and lasts for 3-6 years.

when's the last time a computer lasted that long? and computers cost a whole lot more than consoles, especially if you actually buy the programs that do the "342389054792398" other things.

spending $300-$400 a year or every 6 months refreshing your system isn't out of the question.
