Yeah, but people don't buy a 360 or PS3 for photoshop man. It's much cheaper to get these systems than it is to build or buy a high performance PC for gaming. True there is much more you can do with a PC, but most people cannot afford to drop $2500 to play todays games on the highest deatail at the highest resolutions without frame drop. Plus, PC have far more technical issues than console games, and not to mention the plethora of patches that need to be downloaded after release.
