Relief or comfort in sorrow or suffering.
Although we miss our dog very much, it is a consolation to know that she died quickly, wihtout suffering.

A term that unifies “casualization” (from casual), with “consoles”. While in videogames “casualization” means a tendency to make things less complex and accessible to the masses, “consolization” means the “casualization” applied to games that weren’t casual before. It applies to all kind of games who become less complex because of the necessity of convert mouse to pad controls, lower on memory or graphics requeriments, or downgrade any kind of management (losses the x,y axis, big menus, scrolling inventories, auto aim, auto stats, lack of editor or mod support, etc).
Many games have lost plenty of quality due to their consolization, their predecessors were richer and deeper in each aspect but these multiplatform versions were designed limited by inferior platforms...

A word used by PC gamers to describe the cost-friendly practice of developers in which a video game is clearly designed to accommodate the limited capabilities of console systems.

Symptoms include inferior graphics, sluggish gameplay, clumsy user interfaces, checkpoint-based save systems, a lack of dedicated servers, limited customization and simplified game mechanics.
It was clear that due to the overwhelming amount of negative user reviews of Modern Warfare 2 for PC that Infinity Ward had contracted consolitis.

A form of making out, always in a car, over the center console. Usually, this happens because a girl is too prude to take it to the backseat in the car. This action almost always results in sore ribs, because both people rub their sides against the console while kissing.
Cooper's ribs were very sore after being consoled by Suzy. She's such a prude.

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."
