I understand the Fiance' thing... I am about to put up with wanting to hook up my PC and her playing her Wii, or either of us wanting to watch food network (i cook alot). Anyways, as for cheapness... don't know if you can in Italy... but look at Vizio brand, I am saving about 800$ by going with them with almost no discernible difference. Anyways, after yest another half a bottle of grappa and this time a bottle of La Terrbile (Unibroue), i may not make any sense for the following but hope i do: The major difference between Console gamers and PC Games is that the PC games EVOLVE over time. Best Console can hope for is a few new maps, patches, small additional content. PCs on the other hand... total game conversions, tons of new maps, game styles, added content, features, almost anything you can dream of in our evolved modding culture that exists.While at first glance a game may be wanted for a console, over time it becomes wanted for the PC... Oblivion is a great example, so many people love it for the 360, and everyone i know that has tried it for the PC after the fact and with all the Modifications available... they respect PC so much more now... consoles may be the here and now, however the future and potential lies in the PC games. Outside of fighting games... which games enjoy a fundamental benifit on the console?
