How Can Console Manufacturers Stop PC’s From Taking Over?

The age old question debated for thousands (since the 90’s?) of years – who’s better? Xbox Gamers or Playstation Gamers? Well what if the answer lies in a HUGE TOURNAMENT where players from both sides get to battle it out using the same game, but on their own platform?
