In short, my opinion one wouldn't choose one over the other. The PacBio, in my opinion, fills a different niche than the HiSeq2000/SOLiD4/etc. Therefore, optimally you would have multiple platforms for their specific purposes. In PacBio's case, scaffolding and potentially base kinetics come to mind as things it does that the other major platforms don't.
