This sadly stopped being the case at the start of the last generation. On release, even the PS4 was basically a mid tier PC at best. The Xbox One was a joke. It was a stark contrast to the previous generation, where Xbox 360 could go toe to toe with the high end GPUs of its time (like the Geforce 7800 GT).I just find it something of a shame we no longer regard consoles as being at the forefront of video games tech. Changing times I guess.
