Poll: PS4 Pro and Switch owners: Would u trade places with a 2080 ti PC gamer? (102 votes)

No, I would miss my console exclusives 62%
Yes, ray tracing is a game changer and I would love to try it 17%
I own all consoles and a 2080 ti PC 22%

Would you be willing to completely give up gaming on PS4 Pro / Switch for a powerful 2080 ti PC gaming experience?

You get to experience upcoming ray tracing games and also current games maxed out at high frame-rate, but also lose out on all current and upcoming PS4 / Switch exclusives.

Yes, then sell the 2080 ti for profit to rebuy the PS4 Pro, Switch and more games

Well duh, even if you're a peasant, make the trade, sell the PC, and buy another shitty console.

This. I could also just buy a 2070 or another mid-high end gpu and keep them all

wow, you guys sure love your consoles.

let me make a good case for high end PC gaming.

Imagine all your favorite old school games get this lovely quake 2 real time ray tracing treatment. Would that be enough to persuade you for switching?

You definitely lose exclusives, but you gain a powerful entry in a new era of gaming graphics. Plus, overall, PC is a power gaming platform, it's not like you'll end up in a bad place with no good games when you switch.

Do you believe console gaming (overall) is better than PC gaming?

That Ray Tracing stuff is only recent though.

For me to trade 7 years of exclusives (meaning I would never have been able to experience top PS4 or Switch games) for RTX ON and 60+ fps -- nope, not worth it. I don't even have to think about it more than two seconds.

I have a secret for you Hermits. While the powerful hardware is there, your exclusives list ain't that sexy.

No. Not even just for the exclusives but I also prefer to get my games on a physical format plus I simply prefer consoles because they are more convenient for me. I’m just not interested in gaming on PC at this point in time.

I believe you two have the best of both worlds.

But if you had to choose, would you go PC exclusive (very high end 2080 TI SLI) or consoles exclusive (all current gen consoles)?

Wow, that's beautiful for what they can do to a 22 year old game. Sweet Jesus.

To answer the question. No. But I would build a PC to do all that to compliment my consoles. If I was a dedicated enough to build one.

@Mystery_Writer: why would I need to SLi an RTX 2080 Ti? I'm very satisfied for the performance of my PC. I also enjoy playing my Switch on the go as I'm always on the move.

Probably PC, solely for the better performing multiplats, but that's a very close call.

@whatafailure: That's all a matter of opinion. For me, first person shooters are a big fave, and sorry, but the PC has way more first person shooters. Hell Let Loose, Squad, Ring of Elysium, Skorn(when it eventually comes out), Hunt: Showdown, Insurgency Sandstorm, etc.

None of these are on console, so yeah.

I felt the same, can't wait to see how other old school games would look like with ray tracing. Let alone newer, slightly less old school games, like Mass Effect 1, Mirror's edge, etc..

The advantage of PC gaming is old games gets better with time via new mods and shaders.

I chose "I own all consoles and a 2080 ti PC" even though I sold my Switch. I rarely used it and there were no good exclusives on the horizon. I still have my PS4 PRO which I play NHL and PS exclusives on. My X1 just collects dust as I play the MS games on PC.

haha.. I hear u man, and all those that say they would sell it.

But wouldn't you guys rather play upcoming multiplats that support ray tracing on a high end PC instead of a PS4 ?

I mean, check out this lovely atmospheric lightening, isn't it tempting enough to switch? if a lot of upcoming multiplats starts implementing such lovely lightening exclusively for the PC ?

@Mystery_Writer: 3440x1440/120hz Ultra is a better use of a 2080 Ti than current ray tracing offerings. I am not going to take a massive hit on performance to enable partial ray tracing. It is not worth it IMO. Maybe when future RTX generations have a lot more RT cores it will be worth it, but it just isn't there yet.

What you're doing is the same idiotic, fanboy trolling that has prevailed in places like this for decades now: pushing your style of gaming on different types of gamers. It's like trying to sell sweets to spice foodies.

Would be an interesting decision to make. I already have the 2 consoles and a 1080ti tho so I'd keep the consoles personally. If my GPU was an older/weaker card I'd go with the 2080ti.

PC has no games. What good would be having an awesome rig when there is no games worth playing?

Why would I want to play slightly better looking console ports? I don’t like indie games or dating sims either. Most popular PC games also have insanely low requirements and 2004 graphics.

The whole PC gaming culture is a giant waste of money.

I will gladly stick with PS4 and PS5 eventually.

Both for me.

EDIT: I mean, a relatively powerful PC (2600x/8600k, Vega 56/1070+/2060) and consoles. 2080 ti is just an overpriced piece of tech that I don't really need.

What's the point in all that power if you lose access to entire libraries? I game on PC and consoles. I don't need ray tracing that much to give up entire game libraries. Each system has its strengths and weaknesses, but they should all be experienced if it makes sense for your budget.

Only if I could then sell the 2080ti and use that money to rebuy my consoles plus other stuff.

Otherwise, hell no. I simply have no interest in playing games on a PC. I prefer consoles, always have and always will.

I would,

Sell the 2080Ti for $1,100

Buy a Switch

Buy and put a RTX 2060 in that PC instead

Buy a PC VR headset

Go to B-Dubs with the leftover cash

I'm not impressed by raytracing in its current form. I'm more interested in modding, higher res, and better framerates that PC offers. To me the 2080ti is a scam. I'd sell it and pocket the money to use on buying a PS5 and upgrading my PC when Nvidia is forced to lower their price in the future with better and more value for money cards.
