Honestly, I think I may be done with consoles forever. With the advent of HTPC's and Steam's bigbox. I could see my solutions for a PC/HTPC/gaming rig being an all in one project, where I can control the content. Of course I would miss out on some exclusives... but honestly who cares anymore.

Games used to be very exclusive. You either had it or you didn't... now, I couldn't possibly find the time, ever, to play all the games I would like to. They make too many. So I can always find something good to play on the PC.
