It's also not super surprising. Consoles have (on release) good hardware at a cheap price, due to hardware developer subsidy. They make that back by charging licensing fees to game sellers, which means tiny cap games don't really make it to market on a console, so cost per game is higher. If you only play 4-5 titles casually, a console is probably better choice (if you don't have a desktop, and use cell for lookup). However if you have a lot of console games, you will probably spend more. This guy has both a gaming PC and a console (which is pretty typical for a gaming enthusiast) so his net cost will be more, since he pays both platform entry costs.
As an aside, the total cost per year for is slightly higher for this guy on the console is less than the PC. (~500 vs. ~450).
So, basically all this graphic is saying is that his yearly gaming budget is ~$500.
