Some people would complain how expensive PC gaming is and how complicated it can be when dealing with hardware and software issues. They believe PC is only for those who have cash to spend and consoles are better in the regard that it's user friendly and is not a luxury item like a gaming PC.
In the country where I came from, it is the reverse. Consoles are a luxury item and PC is the common man's gaming machine. There are tons of internet cafes and most of the people in those places are gamers. One does not need to buy a game nor own a PC and the fee per hour is freaking cheap. People play together in the same cafe and would have tons of fun. There would be shouting and cursing but there are also sections within the cafe where one is not allowed to shout or curse in case one wants to be in a quiet environment. Console gamers on the other hand are usually people who are from well to do families and they usually play alone. They may invite friends but they would usually just watch. I think this is also the same with some other Asian countries.
So in a sense, PC is the champion of the common gamer. While this may not be true for the Western countries, the fact that this kind of environment exists show how versatile PC is as a gaming machine.
