The act of creating a PC game which contains console game design concepts or gameplay offering more instant gratification. These design concepts include, but are not limited to the following:

-Unlockables
-Less customization features
-Very little control for multiplayer hosts

Consolization can often be a result of porting a console game to PC and may often be accompanied by sloppy optimization and widespread technical issues of all kinds.

It may also less literally mean "cheapened" or "simplified" and can, as such, sometimes be applied even to certain console games.
"Man, those games used to be awesome, but lately they've just been consolized."

A term used by PC elitists to cast blame away from the developer and the inherent nature of most capitalist societies onto the hapless console gamer.
That game interface is heavily consolized. I would much prefer to use all function keys instead of that streamlined, radial interface.
