    will there be a time when the graphic requirements for a game surpass the built in chips on a console like the xbox360 or ps3? is this an advantage for pc gamers?

    They wouldnt make games for the consoles if they need more power to run.

    No, because that's why some companies make the games for them

    They wouldn't just make a game that doesn't regularly work for the system.
    Computers are a completely different story, seeing as they can be expanded and improved with hardware.
    That would mean new gaming systems would frequently come out, with minor changes for graphics (in this case). That would probably anger customers. At least it would for me.

    HDD space/memory is probably the only thing that can be expanded for games. Excluding the Wii.

    Maybe they offer better graphic options/textures for PCs

    The systems may have HDMI (PS3 & XBox), but the PC might have HDMI (1920x1200) with more textures and fancy art stuff I have no idea whatsoever about. I really have no clue, but that's my best guess.
