pc is better if you want to play uprezzed ps360 games with lots of AA or if you want to play a mass of iphone quality 5 to 15$ indie games at super high resolutions. if you want to play games that actually feature modern engines with assets that werent designed from the ground up for 9 year old hardware or cell phone level hardware, ps4 is better. this will change eventually, but for at least the next 15 months, every pc game will be an uprezzed ps360 port or some crappy indie game that could run on an iphone.

LOL...actually true though

Both will be needed at some point during the gen I'm sure. If I had to make do with one though it would be PC.

These comparisons make me smile. I've just got so much choice gaming on a PC that I would never consider any type of console.

For example, I was playing Mario Galaxy 2 on the Dolphin emulator yesterday evening so I've access to the vast majority of the Nintendo universe barring the WiiU. The entire universe of previous generation titles are up for grabs except for PS 3 and Xbox 360 of which I'm only interested in a handful of first party exclusive titles anyway. Multi plat superiority across the board and the ability to mod some games into truly epic experiences. I'm currently playing Fallout New Vegas and in its modded state it's the most feature rich, graphically gorgeous RPG. That game, btw, was already a great RPG with choices and consequences in its vanilla state. As a game modded to the nines it's on a whole level compared to anything any console has to offer.

Now, I dont give a crap about indie trash. I like high budget, professionally developed games and the PC has loads of those types of exclusives in its own right, not to mention entire genres inaccesible to consoles. Also, going forward there will be very few titles that dont make their way to PC. I dont see a game like Destiny (published by Activision) being unavailable for too long and that's the single AAA mullti plat game that isn't currently slated for release on PC.

So for convenience and a handful of first party titles I'd go for the PS 4; everything else barring a steep price barrier to entrance that levels out considerably over time in comparison, the PC.

Now that Facebook owns Oculus and the future of PC gaming, I think it's safe to say Sony takes away an easy win this year.

Lol, no

@lostrib: Don't worry, mate. You'll still have Candy Crush VR, and Virtual Farmville Plus! I'll be enjoying the real next-gen while you're stuck in casual hell.

...Except for the part where I think VR is stupid, but why would I be stuck? even if that turned out to be true, why couldn't I just buy a PS4?

That's what I'm saying! Why bother waiting around to find out if Facebook is about to turn open-source and help develop the future of PC gaming with Oculus? You have Sony leading the way to a bright and prosperous future for gaming, with or without VR. The Golden Age of PC Gaming died in early 2000, the only people who enjoy PC gaming today are the people in business who stand to make a lot of money. That's just a fact, you don't have to show me sales statistics to prove some mundane point, the fact is PC gaming sucks today.

Because I think VR is dumb...as I said in the previous post

Also none of that is true or a fact

well as a computer, I'd say the PC has the upper hand; but as a console.... gotta go with the PS4.

seriously why would you compare the two?

@lostrib: I take it you're from the camp who thinks CS:Source was a good sequel to CS 1.6; maybe you didn't even play CS, StarCraft, Warcraft III, or any of the games from the Golden Age?

I don't care much about CSS

Also, why am I talking to someone named Jimmy_Russell...

Whichever system gives you the most enjoyment?

Both have their pros and cons, and I enjoy both platforms, but overall I prefer console gaming over PC. So PS4 is the winner for me.

This is a rather odd comparison.

More like a completely stupid comparison.

Comparing a 30 year old platform to one that is like 5 or 6 months old? One platform that has the potential to have 5+ thousand dollars of hardware compared to a static system for 400 bucks?

PC every time, just for the amount of game and the price of games, but consoles are still a lot of fun. Why not have both, pretty stupid to argue over this.
