RE: Why don't the CPU and RAM count as hardware anymore?

I'm probably going to make myself unpopular here but...
Often it takes much longer to program something efficiently. If it takes longer to program then if it is commercial code then the cost will go up. If game prices were to double but ran so much more efficiently that you didn't need to upgrade as often would you be any happier?
And the more efficient you make software, the more time it takes to make any further efficiency improvements - it's all diminishing returns and can't hold it's own against Moore's Law.
