Following from the end of the "50% off Gamecube" thread which went a bit off-topic. Discussion basically goes: XBox: Internet/gaming machine with home entertainment bonuses. PS2: Gaming/home entertainment machine with internet bonuses. GC: Effectively purely gaming (so needing DVD player/PVR/computer seperately). Where's the future headed? Obviously from members point of view we're biased towards seperates (and thus GC style consoles), but the general market will undoubtedly head towards "simpler" all-in-one solutions.
