I think they are. I think they have wanted to for a long time. They are slowly executing their plan to take over the world. At this rate, they will do it too.
A game console is a personal computer. You dont have to update as often, and you don't need to download drivers as often. M$ realized early, console gaming was a lot easier than PC gaming, as far as staying up to date and ease of use. Nothing beats PC gaming as a platform.
As a PC gamer, it is getting too expensive to keep up. A DX10 card costs as much as a 360.
As a parent, I would rather buy a couple game consoles that are gonna play every game for 5 years without worrying about drivers and minimum specs. A couple $500 PCs cannot do that.
I completely agree, although personally I would have to add that not using a mouse and keyboard is a plus (love controllers) not to mention theres less cheaters online simply because files aren't as easily moddable.
