I know all that, I know what KG is saying, and know what you are saying. But I was not saying anything that contradicted it at all. I compared them as two gaming systems, both being affordable and powerful altnernative to a pc. What's so difficult about that?
If I said "The Playstation is the successor to the Amiga" and stopped there, you both would have a point, but I didn't. Selective reading, and all that.
I'm really disappointed in you EAB.
