Now for your question, I dont think console's have held back the graphics development at all. Look at what the requirements are for a game like Max Payne 3 - CRAZY for the high end! Consoles have gathered so much steam because of what I said above, price. Tell Nvidia to take it's high end $600+ card and sell it for $100 and watch how many they sell and how quickly gaming would pick up on pc's.

Lower pricing on video cards would boost the gaming industry for pc's. I will not pay $500+ for a video card! Heck I don't want to pay $200+ Paying more for a video card than a console and games is just crazy in my eyes. Especially if you upgrade that video card every year or two.
The Current consoles right now are over 7+ years out of date. And if the rumors are true about the 720 then it is not going to all that much better then a low end PC
the folks who built that game had to "Dumb" down Crysis 2 in order for the console to even be able to handle that particular game

Because if you think about it, do you really think a 300 USD console can play at 1920 x 1080 when 200 USD video cards on a 600 USD CPU can barely handle it. Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo are not going to put 200 USD CPU's, 150 USD motherboards, 100 USD memory, 300 USD video cards, 150 USD power supplies, 100 USD SSDs into a 300 USD unit. they are going to use the lowest and cheapest components they can find. The Current consoles right now are over 7+ years out of date. And if the rumors are true about the 720 then it is not going to all that much better then a low end PC. Because the rumor is Microsoft is going to be using AMD's new Trinity APU. While these APUs can play games they are not all that powerful.

Quality is great but when it comes down to buying 1 component for a pc that costs more than an entire console setup, the console wins
