However, pure computing power has very little to do with success in the game console market. That’s a lesson Sony may have learned with the PS3, which struggled against the XBox despite being much more powerful.
Very true. But in terms of game sales, I don't think the PC could have benefitted more from the tepid hardware battle (if you can call it that anymore) between Microsoft and Sony. For that I am certainly thankful.
