Seperate console forums

We had this discussion on a previous version of the forum, when each console did have its own area. I think it was the right decision to have everything in one section, which gives exposure of all games and systems to people who might otherwise avoid info on all but their favorite console(s). It helps combat fanboyism, if only by a little bit.

 

Besides, many games are cross-platform.
