Dude, console is made only for one thing: playing games. With PC you can use linux and freeware / shareware games, that means i you're a politically correct geek you never have to pirate any games, and still can play and work with your PC. Just remember to delete any games that exeed the evaluation period and d/l new games with new periods of evaluation time...
There's no point to buy a console if you can't afford to buy the games.
A hard-core d/l freak once told me he never buys any games because he wants to support the cracker groups...
, but I think buying games is better than pirating.
