Pachter: "Xbox 360 And PS3 More Powerful Than Most PCs"

Speaking in an episode of his own show on GTTV, 'Pach Attack' industry analyst Michael Pachter has said the Xbox 360 and PS3 are more powerful than most PCs at home:
"The PC Market if you think about it as packaged products sold - not subscriptions like World of Warcraft - it's only like 6 or 7 per cent of total game sales. It's becoming a declining industry because you can get a near PC experience on a console."

"The PS3 is a pretty powerful box, and it is probably more powerful than 90 per cent of PC's out there. The 360 is probably more powerful than 85 per cent of PC's out there."
With this in mind, it's the consoles that developers should focus on, apparently:
"You say 'no no there's a billion PCs out there' but there aren't a billion PC gamers. PC game sales tell you that that number is a very small number."
Nerds, unite.
