HP Unveils Redesigned Laptops and a Bunch of New Desktops

As a whole, consoles have not been that big of a breeding ground for massively-multiplayer online games and part of that may be due to the general video-game making culture related to consoles which tend to favor sports and shooter games (can we say Call of Duty and Halo?)
