i think also, its easier for parents to buy games for their kids if all they need to know is if their kid has a wii, sony, or xbox. they don't want to have to look at minimum system requirements, and remember what shit their kid has. most people don't know enough about computers to build their own anyways, so consoles appeal to a lot of people.
