PC for sure. I'll play PS4 when PS5 is out. The number of good exclusives available on consoles nowadays are simply too disappointing. There has been more interesting exclusives on PC in a year than there has been on my PS3 for its entire generation. Those same PS3 exclusives last too briefly too. This gen I at least bought a PS3 and finished the rented exclusives in two weeks. For PS4 I may just rent a PS4 and finish the exclusives at the gen's end.
Still, $200 is not a bad deal for two weeks of enjoyment with rented titles, so I'm not complaining about my purchase. The only non-PC platform that has vastly exceeded my expectation and my initially perceived value is probably 3DS. I never imagined that I'd have to create a backlog for something other than Steam.
One thing consolites have to realise is that the price of a console is pretty insignificant to PC gamers with decent rigs. If there is a few titles we are interested in, then we'll just get the platform. Generally the only reason we don't get a particular platform is because there is nothing on the platform that interests us, which is often due to minimal content (8-10 hrs per exclusive), control scheme (controller for FPS) or unappealing subject matter (i.e. many exclusives on Wii/Wii U appear too casual).
I got a PS3 for Demon's Souls, Valkyria Chronicles and Persona 4 Arena. I have played all the other top exclusives, but as I expected I enjoyed those three the most.
Ps4. It plays the games I want, more affordable, aesthetically pleasing/more compact when compared to a PC. Besides, I find most PC cases to be abominations. I also despise PC gaming culture. Just not for me.
If I follow the same trend I've always had, I have mostly a handful of exclusives and sports games on consoles while the PC gets all the multiplats and its own exclusives. Plus, I'd still need a PC/laptop anyway if I went console only. I wouldn't post here on the console or even a tablet or smartphone.
I understand the appeal of the PS4. It's just so easy to sit down and play a game. There is no configuration, and you now 100% that your game will just work. I still have to pick the PC, not only because it can do everything a PS4 can do and more, but it will undoubtedly get more exclusives than both PC clone consoles.
My PS3 required network configuration if it was to receive updates as well as setting up multiple PSN accounts. It's a pain in the butt with that lousy XMB UI. I'm sure the PS4 requires the same.
I think it depends on the circumstances in each consumers lives to be honest as i think the matter of best is always dictated by how the consumer prefers to consume their games. For example, i would want a PC super rig if the cost:benefit were reasonable but knowing that consoles still preety much dictate the innovations and investment for game software, that coupled with the fact i live like a single bloke with not much space, i cannot deny the PS4 even though i am aware the PC offers the better deal in the long run.
If some PC gamers here borrow me their PC, i would gladly take it and toss my PS4 out the window, but for now the PS4 just has me on the train
PC, superior graphics, resolution and frame rate, mods, m+kb precision, control options and pc has many great exclusives to. But I would miss a lot of playstation exclusives. If it was between consoles (all consoles) or pc (no emulators allowed) it would be a very difficult choice.
