    Your opinion on this comment

    So I was browsing Reddit and I came across this link... I'm a console gamer and I don't know much when it comes PC gaming and the components that are required for a gaming rig but this comment... makes me want to punch this guy in the face /facepalm

    Oh hai der.

    He is very very very wrong.

    However, consoles are highly optimized for the games they run and vise-versa. I wouldn't doubt that, hardware-wise, most users are running a more powerful rig than what we find in the Xbox 360. When they engineered the console, it was about balancing costs with demand. If there is a performance boost, it is preferably done on the software level.

    Basically: No, the hardware in an xbox 360 isn't that great. Its the predictablity of its platform and the heavy optimization in the console that makes it a powerful machine for running games, not the hardware.

    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Shit, I wish there were affordable consoles to satisfy the needs of the PC elite.

    Well, there is the raspberrypi - Raspberry Pi | An ARM GNU/Linux box for $25. Take a byte! but its a small arm-based linux setup. Maybe play some low-end opengl games. You can browse the internet and stuff though. Works with their own custom OS and apparently the android OS as well.

    Obvious troll more like it. I find most people with spaced accounts are just trolling (or attempting to).
