I could care less about PC games and shelf space. It's the energy and innovation that developers devote to the platform that is in serious decline. Six years ago, you would have never seen a game like Deus Ex: Invisible War.

Somebody pointed out that console manufacturers are losing lots of money. I know that this is true of Microsoft, but I'm not sure about Sony's Playstation division. Either way, it's going to be interesting to see if console gaming still thrives like it's thriving now once Microsoft gets sick of losing money and either quits the business or tries jacking up prices to recover more costs. I saw an article that showed that the individual parts that comprise the XBox 360 cost about $123 more than the price, before assembly, distribution, retail, etc etc. That's a huge loss to eat on every console.
