What is the requisite to be categorized as a 'hardcore' gamer, then?

Well, I was just opposing to the argument that hardcore games = fps and sports, which appearently makes the Xbox more hardcore. I just found that plain wrong. A hardcore gamer, is as you said, passionate about games, and it doesn't matter at all what genre this player likes. Just because a gamer likes FPSs better than shoot'em ups or racing games doesn't make them any more hardcore.

I could've worded my opinion a lot better though.
