I know many of you here love arguing on witch of the new consoles have better GPU, etc. But are you terrified with the upcoming GPU's from AMD and nvidia?

Note: All GPUs are from AMD so specs can be directly compared.

No, PC doesn't have GOTY or sometimes perfect exclusives like consoles do, so in order to play the best games available in our medium, you need consoles to play.

But UC2 didn't win as many wards as TLOU.

So TLOU should outscore it,but OOTPBB is better than TLOU,even with all the awards :(

Console gamers compare their new consoles to their previous ones, not to PC. Everyone know PC is more powerful, but how many devs will max out those cards in the next 2 or 3 years?

I realize that Gaming Systems will always have the edge of being 'up to date'..however I prefer gaming on a console (I like the controller, I like the price point, I like that I dont have to read "system requirements" to see whether the game will run on my system.

Consoles provide a standard that the game developers have to meet in order to run on their system... Gaming PC's are a moving target, it may run on one but not another (this could be due to hardware or software issue). PC's are more prone to being slowed down by background operations (antivirus, open apps, etc) and are more prone to becoming infected further harming performance.


I have no issues if a person wants to play on a PC, XB1, PS4, WiiU etc... if the system works for their needs, that is all that matters

I'd welcome a short generation this time around tbh.

devs say that for this gen budgets have doubled compared to the last. So having newer consoles faster would be bad for devs and even worse for us because then games would have to sell more to break even and the higher the danger of flopping the less games we'd have (more cookie cutter games too because it'd be more dangerous to experiment/innovate). So why have new consoles faster only to have more clones but less games to play ?

Lets see if a R9 390X with a nice OC can reach around 10 TFLOPS. Becasue I am planing to get 2 390X overclock them and get 20 TFLOPS.

honest question, do you do modelling for games or make movies for pixar or something? Because there will be no game in the next few years that will take advantage of your set-up. And by the time there are games that will there will be cards much more powerful than that and probably cheaper, using less energy and generating less heat.

Not to mention that most games will be made with console specs first and then ported to PC. So your only advantage will be higher res and frame-rate which is not much considering that is still the same game.

If the current growth trend of PC gaming is taken into account, it might be necessary for console-only gamers to get a little worried. With the growth trend and the new jump in technology, game developers might not want to limit themselves to consoles anymore, and push all the boundaries they can on PC where hardware can reach far greater performance highs.

That said, unless a staggering number of developers drop console support (that is to say, any developer like Ubisoft or EA), there is no real "threat" to the console gaming market, besides a slowly declining interest being redirected towards mobile gaming.

No but think it will be interesting to see how long it takes low end cards($40-60 cards) to catch up with the new consoles. I'm not into the specs war even though specs always interest me even the lowest end/old stuff.

I love console gaming. Pop in a game and play. I don't have to worry about minimum requirements, upgrades, OS tweaking, etc.

The downside of consoles is that the disc reader tend to fail more often than PC. :-(

If you're prepared to pay more or wait a while, the PC has always had the potential for more power. You'll be missing out on certain games but it's always been the way for a long long time. Don't act like this is new. As a long long term PC gamer I know what place consoles have which is why I always own at least one.
