This is a personal thought, so please beware before you read.
I Enjoy the fact that they decided to expand there horizons to many other players. Doom can now be experienced by other gamers besides the PC world. Doom once Existed on 64, but was not a huge hit. Very sad!
Even though things have been taken out,rerouted, and somewhat re-designed. It still keeps some of that scary feeling. I myself am not a huge PC gamer, but many of my friends are. I do play, but not as much as most. This allows me to understand the love they have found in this game.Even though the graphics are much better on PC,and a few other choice things that could be named, but I am sure you know what they are.
Doom 3 on Xbox reaches out to the new generation of kids. This also allows Pc and Console gamers to interact with a mutual understanding and compassion. And for this I am grateful.

an uninformed inexperienced pile of presumptuous crap
uninformed inexperienced crap concerning consoles but was right about other stuff like greedy corporations
For years people on Dreamcast and PC have already been playing together in mainly Phantasy Star Online and also Quake 3. People probably aren't bothering with Quake 3 on DC anymore, but right now there's plenty of people playing PSO on both DC and PC together on free servers with most of the players being on DC.
Anyway, both PC and console games have sucked for the past several years. Dreamcast's death in mainstream market marked the end of good console gaming except for one or two good games that come along every once in a while. Dreamcast isn't really dead though since people are still developing stuff for it.

Some time in the future there will be no need to have both a PC or console. They will merge into one. There will be no need to buy a better Console because it is out dated, For you can upgrade as you do with a PC. There will be a machine out there that can do both. This is the future.
Oh yeah, beacause upgrading is one of our all time favourite pastimes :P
So, will this amazing new device have a mouse and keyboard? Will it support the full range of PC peripherals currently available on the market today, such as trackballs, wheels, drawing tablets, unconventional displays like DVI projectors or the Cintiq? Will it run as broad a range of applications as we have available today, both free and commercial, for tasks such as word processing, image manipulation, 3d modelling, video editing, etc? Will these things just run natively straight away without any messy porting? This is the collected PC programming effort of the entire world to date we are talking about here. In esscence, will this new device not simply be a PC in disguise?
Because if that is the case, I have great news for you my friend. There is already a machine that combines both the flexibility of a PC and the comfortability of a console.
The future is now
Maybe I just need some clarification on this, but wouldn't the merging of them be pretty much the same as a computer hooked up to the TV and attaching controlers? With my videocard, I could do this currently.
The only difference I could see is something along the lines of an instant-on PC, or something near that.
All I have to say is... NESTICLE.
