I have my PC in my bedroom, with my 360 hooked to to my medium sized LCD/HD display on the opposite wall (about 32"). Downstairs are 2 more PCs and a laptop (other family computers). I also have a 42'' LED TV downstairs in the living room hooked up to a blueray player. My brother also has a mac book pro.

Single atm, 48, no kids, small appartment. No TV.

Gaming laptop, low cost PC as backup, 2 Screens (24", 27").

Not even any real idea what a console is good for. Never had one and unlikely to ever buy one. Do you need a TV to run a console?

384 kBit/s super low speed dsl connection. Eagerly awaiting the 50 MBit connection scheduled by the provider for early next year. A new age is coming...

Remove standings and insurance.

This is a big thing to wont in eve but I would rather them to have added a mech style to eve as I mean to invent mech warfare like MechCommander for planet system warfare.. I hope the game works for them but I think people are burnt out on shooters these days..

Normally this "wife should be int he kitchen" thing is untasteful and gets old fast but the The Bitchen is just gold xD Lol

Single dad with teenage daughter, full-time job and full-time student. The living room doubles as the study, where we both do our schoolwork. 1 laptop each, and a 360 hooked up to a 27" LCD. No DATV/Cable, just Netflix.

36, married with a 6-month old, computer's in the office room. Ain't no ******* way I'm buying a PS3. For one, I'm a PC gamer and for two, money. Pretty soon I'll be getting a new laptop with gaming video; this piece of hardware is infinitely more useful than a PS3 in part because I'm a developer.

I can expect to get about one or two hours to myself on the four weeknights that my wife is working where my daughter has gone to sleep, and on the occasional Saturday, which I generally split up between games (right now KSP, FTL, and Minecraft) but mostly try to find something to do in EVE.

/sob story

A professional astro-bastard was not available so they sent me.

My initial thought is that the point of releasing DUST on console is to diversify into a separate market to EVE. It gives CCP a better resilience against unforseen changes in the market than investing solely in the PC market.

So I don't think they are really looking to draw people from DUST to EVE.

You fool! Statues are far too obvious and just call out for being handled and twisted. You should connect it to the handle of the duster casually leaning against the bookcase.

This is my view..... however, as I mentioned, others disagree.

The reason behind the thread, and it seems to be a 50/50, was to establish the setup pattern of Consoles vs PC
