Why you so poor!

There's far more important things to spend money on.

Pretty sure I've spent less money on my PC & games than many console gamers out there.

Its objectively better in every way, except maybe ease of use

[QUOTE="Bigboi500"]There's no discussion to be had about hardware since console don't have that option.

Bigboi500

Which was the whole point...

Stupid point because console gamers prefer the simplicity of plug and play as opposed to having to upgrade and change hardware, so that would be a negative for console gamers.

Also stupid thread because it doesn't allow for any discussion, just trolling.

Well welcome to system wars.

I like consoles over PC because it's easier to pick up and play, it's more convienant. I'm not some super PC guy so I don't want the hassle of setting up my rig and tweaking settings to run games right, I just want to grab my game and play it.

And consoles are more cheaper, PC games are only really cheap during Steam sales, normally they are the same as retail prices, and I don't want to spend money upgrading ever year or two.

Some people like PC gaming, that's good for them. They like spending money on it and learning more about the platform, but I don't like it very much. Aside from RTS games, Morrowind, and Diablo 3 I don't play on PC much. I'm not a fan of mouse and keyboard and it's a pain to set it up on my HDTV, my PS3 is just far more easy.

And this may make some people mad, but it's the truth, I don't really see a big difference between PC and console versions, look at the recent comparison video GS did of Far Cry 3, the PC version didn't look any different from the console versions.

I don't understand why console gamers use this reason.

My PC is 4 years old, and based on hardware more like 5 years old. It still runs all games at 1080p on high settings with a good framerate. Some of the most demanding games I'm now running on medium, but still at far higher framerates and far better graphics than consoles (e.g. Witcher 2, BF3)

because his PC has integrated intel graphics and therefore he cannot actually see a legit comparison outside of youtube, which is not a comparison at all

Yeah, I do have blue LED fans in my case. There are small blue LEDs on my mouse and keyboard too, as I was aiming for a black theme with a few drops of blue. Looks easy to the eye, and hardly tacky...

It's also much more preferable than a box that needs to be hidden due to its uglyness! :P

If anyone wants to compare a console (PS360) with a PC here's a tip for fairness. Compare consoles with 2005 laptops, because a console doesn't have a full on (VHS size) graphic card, they just have a chip much like laptops. So get that high end 2005 laptop GPU couple with 512MB of RAM and lets see how well ME3, AC3, GTAIV and so on run on it. Then Crysis, Metro, GTAIV on ICE and so on. Because the comparison you lot love to do is like smartphone vs C64 or bike vs van, stupid and pointless but what ever boosts your ego I guess.
#188 Posted by Puckhog04 (22809 posts) -

I have the CHOICE!!! of whether or not to pick up the next gen console. Just like you have the CHOICE!!! of whether or not to pick up the $600 videocard that is "next gen". So I don't see the difference other than the Console is cheaper.

If I have a gaming laptop, then obviously I can play on batterie. Also, Laptop is portable... not your console. If anything, laptop are more like handheld.

I recently upgraded my PC to an Intel i7 3770K CPU (ivy bridge) and a Asus Sabertooth S77 motherboard, only to discover I bought a bad mobo (it wouldn't boot up after hours of changing out the old one, a Gigabyte mobo with an i3 1st gen CPU). Returned the mobo and did manage to get a replacement, 3 days later (because the mobo is an enthusiast's board, very few stocks were kept by the entire store nationwide, and the store branch I bought it from had to request for a replacement from another branch because the one I bought was the only stock that branch had).

Never had a problem with my PS3 (fat version bought wayyy back in 2008), and it can still play the latest games (the ones that store managers imply that they require the slim version). Current game played: Persona 4 Arena, the most fun fighting game I've ever played, and completely non-existent on the PC.

Hence I avoided the XBox360 and went for the PS3, where I'm enjoying the latest games without problems, like Persona 4 Arena (which has no release on the PC).
