The question says all. In my opinion I don't think it does for several reasons. PCs will always superior to consoles in terms of specs and it's useless trying to have powerful hardware to catch up to them. What sells a console to me is the launch, overall marketing, and the library of games as well as its features. The PS2 is the best selling game console of all time and it was much weaker than the Xbox and the GameCube. The PS3 was the most powerful last gen yet the launch was horrendous due to the $600 price tag. The Xbox 360 and the Wii did far better despite being weaker. SEGA wound up becoming a third party company because of the Dreamcast (which is a shame since it was pretty awesome :( ) Basically having a console being a powerhouse isn't enough for it to sell and never should be in my opinion.
