As an anecdote, just this summer I fell in love with an online mulitplayer game, Team Fortress 2 on the 360. I found out there was an updated version of the game on PC, so I bought it, downloaded it, installed it....and it wouldn't work. Called computer technician, took it to a shop, paid $50 to have my computer looked at, told everything looks in order and it should work fine, only to return home and kaput! Thus ended my PC gaming experiment....
PS3: Without the devil in it
Team Fortress 2 is the bomb. I still play it online on steam with a bunch of my friends.
