I can sit in my living room instead of my office, already has voice chat integrated, online community to easily jump into, my friends with the game can easily meet me there, etc. I have Kinect, so I could possibly even video chat with a friend while playing without having to wear a headset or mic.
If the XBOX version is as robust as the PC version (a.i. has an editor) then I would prefer the console version even though my history in gaming goes back through decades of console play.
Try out Endwar on the XBOX Urchin and you might change your mind. It's a great example of a console strategy game done right (nice 3D graphics, easy commands including voice). Civilization on XBOX was very simplified over the console version, but I'm a fan of both. The XBOX version didn't need hours of time dedicated.
