Summoner/Game Consoles
Jacobite January 03 - 11:33 AM

It seems lam to really own a game console since most of the great games eventully are released on home computers. The major benifit is correction of errors and add features (multiplayer in Summoner). Once there are errors in console games, your stuck since just can't d/l a patch like on a computer( the was the case in Summoner). What is interesting is all the great home computer games are transalated onto game consoles (Warcraft II, Starcraft....ect.)
There already has been a console game released on the mac: 4:4 Evolution.

I guess what I'm saying is home computers rock (especially the mac) in provideing great games by pushing the standard and the game consoles are always limited. Sure you will say well you can never play Final Fantasy on the mac. However I will say the PS2 will still behind the mac in 5 years in game technology until PS3(use ATI Radon card while playing Rune you will understand)
