Console gamers are smarter than PC gamers in the end, they play the same modern, HD games for $300 instead of $700+. Plus all the sports games and console exclusives that never grace our PC monitors.
The only upside to PC gaming, and the reason I'm here, is because I see value in understanding the components of a PC and how it's built. If our PC's break, we can troubleshoot and fix them, not to mention upgrade them, at minimal expense... as opposed to console gamers whose hands are tied if the disc tray doesn't open.

The console hardware is generally lesser than PC hardware and supported hardware and as it ages there is little you can really do about it aside from wait for the next console. An average PC will play most current games as any console will, but few consoles can play those same games as well as a quality PC will.Of course, you're right in that there are plenty of console exclusives out there, but there is also plenty of PC exclusives you aren't going to get on the consoles; so that point is really pretty weak at best. Besides, most people have a computer already to some degree, so the comparison of costs is somewhat irrelevant since a console plus a minimal PC or laptop will run about the same as just a gaming PC.Console gamers could be considered cheaper, or even more frugal than PC gamers; but smarter? Hardly. In the end it's a matter of preference regarding a number of factors. One choice isn't "smarter" than the other, it's more a matter of which choice is more right for that individual. Personally I've lost interest in the console market and game exclusively on PC, but there was a time (PS2's heydays) where I console gamed far more than PC. It's just now consoles no longer meet my needs as well as my PC does.
