The PC, granted the X-Box rocks but I am just playing PC ports on the Box so that doesnt really count

I love fps and strategy games like Shogun, consoles just cannot compete.

I generally prefer PC games, particularly RPG's.

One of the greatest things about PC games that consoles will likely never have: addons.

I prefer PC over console anyday. Whenever I see a console game, I shudder at the resolution and aliasing. Community addons are a plus for PC games too. By addons, I mean maps, skins, sounds, etc. I don't know how or if that will be able to be accomplished on a console. And, I much more prefer mouse and keyboard over a gamepad.

So what do you call that level addon for splinter cell on the xbox?

Console with hard-drive + online = add ons.

Have you seen the emulators and other software for the Xbox? A lot of it is quite impressive. Oh, and I remember people making mods for the Dreamcast version of Quake 1, so I'm kinda assuming that Xbox with it's Harddrive will be an even bigger mod platform. Of course, they'll have to figure out how to mod the games without a mod chip first...

I don't believe that the user addons for the consoles are legal for licensing reasons. Splinter Cell was an in-house addon. I may be wrong but they don't release SDK's for any console at the moment. That's why PC addons/mods are so great, they're by your peers/community that you are involved in. Atleast that's my take on it. It's PC for me, since I haven't owned a console for some time now.

Cheers.
