A hardcore PC gamer just isn't going to suddenly turn to console gaming. I use both, but go online and plenty of people turn their nose up at playing on consoles and go along with PCMR. Some play games that aren't even released on console, or are much better played on PC (like RTS).I don't think that's true at all, not everyone has unlimited budget. They look at a mid level pc market now at $1000+ and decide a $500 console makes sense, this wasn't the case before.
If people didn't want a "nerfed" console, it flat out wouldn't sell. If you look at the reviews, the buyers of these consoles are 98% happy.
Nerfed is just a stupid way to describe it, do you call a Samsung s20 a "nerfed" phone vs a s20 ultra? Or a computer with a 2060 a "nerfed" computer vs a 3070?
Your just getting silly at this point.
It doesn't really matter if it would be less popular than the main skew, the idea would be to get more consoles overall in place.
Not to mention there is the possibility of just holding on to your current card until you find a deal you want.
The Series S comes with serious compromises. Some people are willing to accept that. But many arent. Comparing it to a 2060 for example (on a platform where you have ultimate flexibility in terms of graphics quality and framerate) is plain weird. You seem to be using all kinds of mental gymnastics to get around the fact that the Series S is significantly less popular than the other next-gen consoles. Sometimes the simplest answer is the right answer....
