  1. The problem with PC games vs Concole games is that PC games are built for whatever the newest hardware can handle, making your machine obsolete in a year. Console games are built around the Consoles specs for like 3 or 4 years, making it a much better gaming value and it dont get viruses like Winblows. I do say I like the mouse and keyboard better than a gamepad for 1st person stuff, thats why Im hoping the Phantom does what its suppose to, play PC games w/ mouse and keyboard on a console, either that or we see some faster game porting for mac. Aspyr is doing a great job so far, and the bigger they get, the better for Mac gaming. I wish they would have struck a deal for DOOM 3 though, the G5 would be perfect machine to run that bad boy!

  2. “by the way.. gamers play console games..”
    I consider myself a gamer, I play PC games more than I play console games. Hooked on CS, ET, TFC, Far Cry. My consoles are next to the TV gathering dust. Many people my age moved from a C64 (not a dedicated console) to an Amiga or AtariST (also not dedicated consoles) to a “modern” PC, with some consoles added to the mix.

    Oh, I’ll make shure 2 write the goodest english nekst time, m’kay? bloody hell, get a life, why do people always pick on the non-native speaker?
