It has been the highlight of my career to work on a product so loved. It’s incredibly tough to leave but I am confident the best days are ahead for Xbox fans, in the capable hands of a very talented team.”

"But it also shows a $500.00 PC would beat both consoles in performance and functionality which was the point of the post."
Doesn't matter, different markets and your idea of "functionality" isn't likely the same as the console buyer. I am a long time PC gamer too... Never had a console until 3 years ago I got a PS3 slim because my friends were on it and we wanted to play online. The ease of use , fun factor and controller made me stop PC gaming almost entirely. If for no other reason than the standard coltroller and ability to kick back in your easy chair and play for hours, without hunching over the KB/Mouse... Like I said, totally different markets.

I still play PC as well, but I get you completely. On PC these days I mostly play just multiplayer games with friends who still play only PC.
And of course, exclusives.
"If you can find a PS3 anywhere in North America that's been on shelves for more than five minutes, I'll give you 1,200 bucks for it." -- SCEA President Jack Tretton
