the problem is though that they've walled up so much that it's very hard to almost impossible for an unknown game developer to break into the console market, Which is a terrible thing since they are usually the only ones producing good games, since the big guys keep rehashing the same tired old games with new graphics every few months.

As for the hardware, true, there are die shrinks on all hardware, but the main difference is that when you are using custom hardware like the PS3, you end up reliant on a company that doesn't really care about your product line, this is what happened with IBM for the PS3's Cell and Apple's G5 PPC Macs, IBM didn't care enough about this low end hardware, it was distracting them from their own high end server line which they deemed more important to their own bottom line.

As before though, you get the added benefit that there isn't a game dev on earth that can't write for x86.
