Not really telling me anything I don't know...

I am not saying Blast Processing, Cell or the Cloud wasn't "real". - They are all technologies that fundamentally exist.
The contention point is that people made those aspects to be something they aren't in order to try and assert their platform choice to be the superior technical choice... When in reality, those technologies didn't really give any particular platform such an edge that it was impossible to run on another platform with similar results.

PC also does benefit from an SSD, in-fact it's baked right into Windows, Game Engines and API's. - Need me to provide some examples?

I think you just stalling the discussion, there has not been any change or whatsoever on PC ssd for past years "FOR GAMES SO FAR ". When you say "API" yes , they have gaming API ready available for PC for long time, but the discussion is about how game developer " utilize it " inside their game engine and their "games" , nit just inside gaming API. Console will make it different it will just be an API it will be for real realize for sure in reality. It will become mainstream thanks to console. like always is tech will improve if it's benefit more people (mainstream)  rather than small group of people (high end user ). 

There has been tons of changes on the PC over the past several year in regards to how it sees storage, Windows Vista and Windows 7 brought a slew of improvements to that end... And Windows 10 took it a step farther.

Direct X's Virtual Texturing also takes full advantage of solid state storage... And there is one engine in particular that leverages that technology extensively.

The point you don't seem to understand is that the storage medium isn't going to change how games operate or run or how they are even developed, there are fundamental design principles that need to be adhered to for various reasons at all levels.

If a game relies more heavily on the streaming of assets, then an SSD can provide a substantial advantage... But a completely new gaming experience it will not bring.
