    Holding out against the tide of the console forces intent on global conquest and the advent of a proletarian paradise where everyone has exactly the same graphical experience.

    Presumably the study itself isn't public so we can review it then?

    I think PC gamers have better things to do than reply to a survey.

    No, it didn't; it said most of Britain plays consoles.

    Nope, I'm pretty sure he meant chavs. Bad apostrophe is bad!

    This kind of doesn't surprise me. Brits seem to love their gadgets, whereas in my limited experience of Germans they seem to place more emphasis on proper quality equipment.

    Oh the shame of being from Britain.
    To combat the consoles I pledge to spend even more time gaming on my PC :)

    Oh dear Britain.

    We also have PC World and DSGi Group, so it isn't surprising :p

    Well, it's to be expected from a country full of FIFA and CoD idiots, as well as being dominated by DSGi who sell craptastic plastic laptops with ancient hardware.

    Sadly not; the reports are designed to be sold to industry types for $LARGEMONEY.

    when i was at NVIDIA the other day they told me how frustrated they are with "a certain retailer in the UK" as they focus on price over performance/customer satisfaction with performance.

    They've created a focus in the UK on sub £400 being the focus for laptop manufacturers as this is what consumers expect to pay. Apparently this is only true of the UK and the rest of Europe is far more focussed on performance (as evidenced by Germany it would seem...)

    It's a bad sign when I was thinking the same thing just by reading the title, and I scroll down to find I'm not alone...
