PC is my preferred gaming device.
For me the cost is hardly an issue. I need a computer for University work, internet and stuff as well as games so it makes sense to spend extra to get a decent PC. Feels like saving money to me. Also if you build the PC yourself you can save a lot over pre-built ones. It doesn't require too much research.
Another thing that annoys the hell out of me when I'm playing on console is the FPS drops. I couldn't care less if I have less pretty graphics, as long as the game shows them consistently while I'm playing it. Do console gamers not notice it or something, or is it that you're so used to it, it seems normal?
Also mods, pirated games, less screaming 12 year olds (not that they don't exist on PC though) and a larger selection of some great indie games.
One thing I will say about console is it's a great social machine. Having a few friends come around, drink, smoke and play GT5/Rock Band/CTR is just something that a PC can't really emulate.
