In a way I agree with that patcher fellow.

Consoles are easy to optimize for when compared to PC's and their broad range of hardware configurations. So in a way, console gaming makes more sense for the development industry than does trying to make a game be playable across a broad range of hardware specs.

However, the idea that PC's aren't as powerful as the PS3 is simple ignorance. My twin 8800GT's have played games with higher detail than anything the PS3 can hope to render in real time.

Can't view the video at the moment but is related to the one linked in this tweet?

Well that one is linked in the original article, but that's just highlighting the latest episode. It's actually this one. So slightly later (early 2010, not late 2009), but still quite old. (The comment is just before the 6-minute mark in the video.)

The guy was an idiot in 2009, and he still is.
I don't mind people playing on their consoles, but to think for even a second
that consoles are "more powerful" than PCs is just ridiculous. The XBOX has
never beaten a world champion Chess player. hehe

The Cell processor from a computational point of view is quite powerful, but it's general processing is pretty crap.

I'm pretty sure a Sandy Bridge-E processor with AVX would eat the cell processor alive.
