[QUOTE="spiderliam"]Too expensive to maintain mate. Plus, i'm on tour most of the time, so PC is not a viable option. PS3 is small and tourable, PC is not! I see what you mean about finding the glitched code, but surely there should be a directory where certain bits of code can be found??Frag_Maniac
Common myth, only upgradaholics get into the too expensive habit. There's also the fact that the PS3 needs a display, so you have to bounce from TV to TV, or carry a small monitor or something. There's a couple ways you can go small with PC. The first obvviously is more expensive, a gaming capable laptop and portable mouse.
The 2nd option however can be done quite affordably, a micro atx pc case with reasonable but not expensive gaming hardware. The same scenario applies display wise, bounce from TV to TV or carry a small monitor.
Today's PC gaming parts facilitate micro builds better than ever. There are a lot of small die, cool running low power consumption CPUs and GPUS available. I'm betting the GTX 660 will be a popular micro build GPU. Sneak peeks show it as being no longer than the GTX 670's PCB, which is very small.
I've even seen guys custom build gaming PCs using aluminum briefcases for shells, and it doesn't cost as much as you might think.whoa! that's some handy info there, but still, i've got a limited amount of room for what i can carry, and i've only got space for one laptop, and being a long time mac user (for professional musical reasons), i've fell out with windows. It asks too many questions and is annoying. Plus, you can't get all the games you can get on PS3 on PC. All of my friends from home are on PS3, and not all of them could actually afford to upgrade to a PC, so playing with them online would be impossible. All in all, a PC is way more expensive than a PS3, so i think i'll stick with that for now. Thanks for the info though, might come in handy eventually!
