Re: Advice on which console to buy
It's an acquired skill (the interface). Of course it's no competition, the mouse/ keyboard combo has it hands down for first person games (halo type games).
The Xbox has the advantage of "pickup and play" games that you don't have to remember all the controls of "keyboard" type thinking games. With my schedule, I'd rather pickup and play racing/ fighting type games and play for a short while than spend hours learning interface and intricacies.
I'm a shallow gamer with not a lot of time I guess.
I'll be picking up an XBOX360 in about 6 months to a year, probably when PS3 comes out, and they drop the price of the X.
