Always been a pc gamer. Had a ps3 but just couldn't get into it. The only gaming box that interests me is the steam box. Will have to wait and see what it's like

mmm I don't know if it's good or not for the PC to come back in popularity. I really love my PC and with Steam it has been the best way I've had to play videogames. 

If the PC becomes popular again, I'm afraid that MS is going to try to monopolize that sector and knowing they are soooo greeedy they are going to spoil PC gamming as they have done with Xbox.

So, please keep buying consoles and let PC for those we really appreciate video gamming...

''The “fat cats” want that Nintendo money. They are a powerhouse whose first-party offerings can’t be controlled, and who has a dedicated fan base that shows up year after year, decade after decade. If you could buy a console with Nintendo’s own games, plus the inclusion of every major third-party game? They would have the best of everything at that point. The “fat cats” will not and cannot stand for that; it’s not in their business interests. Nintendo stands against nearly everything they’re for – they rarely charge DLC, they don’t charge for online, they don’t take huge hardware losses, and they give gamers complete games.  ''  Nintendo FTW

Most console games have PC versions, while many popular PC games don't have console versions. PS4 and xbone just don't have too much appeal when I already own a mid-range PC. All I need to buy for console gaming is a controller, which hasn't change much for the past 10 years.

Man, I bought the new Mario and except for a couple of levels the gamepad is useless. The only thing you use it for is to turn the camera in certain spots, which could also be done with a control stick but for some reason it makes you use the gamepad as well. I have yet to see a wii u game make the gamepad interesting. Pikmin used it as a map, Zelda used it as inventory or a map. Not that clever.

Well apparently there are no more trees in Great Britain so paper is very valuable.


But in all seriousness, the dude had a child at the age of 15. I don't care how you try to justify it, that's just stupidity.

This just shows the intelligence of anyone who would buy an Xbox One(Spybox One). If you confuse a piece of paper with console you deserve to part with your money LOL. Bet you dont see a Pc gamer confuse a rig with a piece of paper! LOL LOL LOL. Bet you dont see a Ps4 gamer make that mistake....lol

I'm for them all PC then PS4 Xbox one. The chick in GTA 5 looks better then Lindsay Lohan. No case there. Nintendo is going belly up as a console. Software and handhelds are were Nintendo is at.

Nintendo needs more high quality / Fun games & better marketing to go alongwith it

I'm not gonna take the credit for this one but it's nice to see that the GS News videos don't have that some Asian guy interviewing some White guy picture under "What's Popular"


..you reading this Ed Tran?? wherever you may be


P.S. That GTAV girl can't be Lindsay Lohan... the girl in the image is too hot to be confused with her

Funny Nvidia should say that, when currently the only prototype of Steam Machine that is much more powerful and cost-effective that consoles (which means the first system that would "prove" PC's are effectively better than consoles) runs on an AMD R9.

id like to walk right up to that lohan while she is sledged over in a coked up rampage and say... NO LOHAN JUST NO!!!

LL would have to go after almost every network that broadcasts a tv signal. I can't guess the amount of times I've seen a character that embodies Lindsey in looks and lifestyle choices.

Or perhaps she is ignorant to the word satire, phrase defamation of character and the All Persons Fictitious disclamer.

Buying an expensive piece of paper is the gold standard. Scammers should be dealt with, but why should others be responsible at all of one fools idiocy? The auction listing stated it was for a photo of the console, not the system itself. I read that, I laugh and wait to hear about it on the net. But that's me. And for shame on him for using the 'it was for my kid' sympathy generator. At most, that kids maybe 4, 5 would be pushing it. Far to young to warrant a £450 expenditure.

Wii U is great. It does more than the other consoles. Backwards compatibility, Free Online, accepts external HDDs, and even offers a bit of remote play with the gamepad. Also it offered physical media when X1 was trying to DRM everyone to death and in a compact package.

OMG yes, thank you for pointing out how messed up it is that at 19 years old he already has a son old enough to use an Xbone... >.<


It all adds up when you think about it. He was probably scammed too when buying condoms at a younger age.

lohan better check herself

shes no where near as hot as the chick in the picture and the chick in the picture is not even real

well i guess suing random companies is a way for washed up actresses to make a bit of money

but to be honest i hope the whole thing backfires on her

I think the wii u is great. I want to get this system. I just think that nobody has a clue what the heck the system is ever capable of. I next gen wii? That sounds pretty awesome to me. That's what the original wii was missing: Everything that the Wii U includes. I really hope that the Wii U won't be left in the dust.

Well all three next gen consoles use AMD GPUs.  So if Nvidia was in that game then I'm sure they wouldn't have ever mentioned that.  And there is still time and hope for the Wii U to pick up more ground.

@mirage_so3  The levels that require it make use of it by having you tap on some objects to make them pop out so you can progress further in the level.

God that's a dumbass comment. It's easy to deceive a person on ebay. All the seller had to do was insert the word paper or picture in there somewhere and that's enough to claim it's not a scam. Somewhere at the end make a tiny note people aren't likely to read (Disclaimer: Not actually a console)

@Namgis  Yea isn't satire completely protected by the courts...?  Pretty sure you cannot sue someone for use of your image if it's for satire... which is essentially all GTA V is.

@Sharkspawn80 Who said you need to use the best parts for it to be more powerful than consoles?

Dannystaples14

@zillaman101 Well yeah it is next gen compared to the Wii. 


Compared to what most people refer to as the next generation with Xbox One and PS4, the Wii U is basically a little bit more powerful than the Xbox 360 and PS3.


Which means by most definitions it isn't next gen at all.

snaketus

@ekolite Indeed. But the fact that Wii U is basically a Power PC and not x86 like other two I see their third party support getting even thinner than ever.

snaketus

@Mantan911 @Sharkspawn80 Actually you will need pretty expensive rig to compete with consoles. Especially if you really want the smooth 60 fps in every game or more. Being more powerful on paper doesn't mean a fuck in real world. PC versions of triple A is almost always poorly optimized. If you don't have the all power in the world, your experience will be worse than on consoles.

@Dannystaples14 @zillaman101 You sir are an idiot PS4 is capable 1.8 teraflops, Xbone can do about 1.2 and has multiple os's, the wiiu a dedicated video game machine has wait for it 980 gigaflops and one os that sounds awfully close to the xbone. The wiiu is next gen in console terms. My Gtx 670 Nvidia graphics card is capable of doing 2.6 teraflops on its own not including my cpu now thats next gen dumass! 

ekolite

I think all three give a pretty unique experience than pc. especially wii u and xone with it's kinect. ps4 controller is rather innovative as well.

@andrew_young1970 @snaketus

search "ibuypower steam machine"

$500 PC the size of a console that they claim can currently run every steam game maxed out at 1080p 60FPS.

If this is true, and it runs, say, Planetside 2 like that, then it's pretty safe to say that not only you don't need to be rich, like andrew said, but you also won't have to have a huge tower next to your TV.

@snaketus nope this is a quote from digital trends "Upgrading a computer to perform on par with next-gen consoles isn’t as hard or costly as you think. The total cost of a new processor, video card and additional RAM works out to about $400, which is the price of a PlayStation 4; and that’s assuming you need all the upgrades. Better yet, your old games will still work on your upgraded gaming rig" and they are talking about upgrading a old dual core rig. The only thing the bone and P4 got on us is GDDR5 system memory.

@Sir-DJ @zillaman101 I don't give a fuck about power when PC gets the same shit games as we get on consoles.

What is the point in running from a 670 when you can run them from something cheaper? Games like Crysis 3 might look good but Crysis has got to be the most boring game I've ever played. 

Witcher 1 wasn't exactly off the scale in terms of graphics and yet it is one of the best games that has come out in the last ten years.

There is no game out that is great BECAUSE it has good graphics or BECAUSE it runs at 60fps. It is good because it is good. 

Fuck graphics and power and gigaflops. If a game is shit it doesn't matter how good it looks I still won't be playing it.
