    I am definitely not envious of either console. Neither have any must have games (for me) right now. Until that happens, I wont be envious. I'll just keep playing the games I like to play... On PC... The definitive versions... Couldn't help my self

    Yeah you're right. Plugging in a HDMI cable to a TV is super difficult... It's not like i'm typing to you right now with both my monitor and TV plugged into my PC. Personally, I prefer gaming at a desk but that is because I mainly play shooters and I can't stand playing them with pads any more.

    Consoles have their place for some gamers. PC for others. Unfortunately for me, or the consoles, I demand 1920x1080 and minimum of rock-steady 60fps at the bare minimum for my games. Not even this generation has been able to provide that as of yet. And that even is before I buy my 2560x1440 G-Sync display in a few months.

    I'm not going to say that the consoles aren't good. They are and I will buy both of them whenever I feel they are worth their money but currently neither are. If you are looking for simplicity and a few good exclusives, then yes. Consoles are great. If you want no compromise eye candy and smooth gameplay, then PC's are great. All depends on the end user.

    Hate to tell you this but using a keyboard and mouse is not easy or comfortable while laying on your bed. You go have fun with your pc you don't need me to tell you how great you are because you have a pc.

    What do I care if it is easy or not? I'm used to it and it is much better for playing FPS. Pads can't come close to the accuracy, that's why they have aim assist.

    I don't know where you get the feeling I think I'm great for using a PC. I've not once said that. I've always said that PC's are better for me. In case you need it pointing out - My posts are always of my own opinion.

    PC fanboys are no different than console fanboys. They bash on other platforms to feel reassured about their purchase and platform of choice. Somebody who's truly satisfied and enjoying their PC/console of choice doesnt feel the need to constantly bash on other peoples. Its pretty childish but I guess it makes them feel validated.

    This whole thread is mental masturbation for pc gamers. For some reason you guys need to tell others how awesome pc's are as if most of us don't own one. I actually game on my pc for some games but for most I have my consoles. It is too expensive to keep up with Jones's in pc gaming. To each their own.

    This whole thread is to compare a mid spec PC to a console. Nothing about masturbation. If anything it is to dispel the myth that PC gaming costs a small fortune. If anything we've only been trying to end people with this misinformation about PC's and saying things that just aren't true.

    I have no right to tell anyone where they spend their own hard earned money where they game.

    @Rad - Who has bashed on the consoles? All I see are people posting about how each platform is. No one has bashed on the consoles. It's kinda rich seeing posters in this thread claim we're bashing on consoles yet some of you guys are the first to rant about how superior the PS4 is to the XBone. But when the shoe is on the other foot it kind of hurts when your platform is the one getting talked about.

    Seriously, why is it ok for some posters to go in the Xbox section and mention how superior the PS4 is, yet everyone knows the power difference, yet if a PC is brought into the equation it's unacceptable.

    This is the VS section. If you don't like the thread, don't read it. But don't go crying about 'bashing' consoles when some of you are quick to do the same.

    It was more an informative thread to begin with until certain persons posted (sometimes long winded) opinions as to why they prefer consoles over PC. Then the arguments start and then people troll in and say PC gamers this that and the other.
    Actually.

    Exactly. I don't need to tell the world why I think PC gaming is better. All it was to do was to compare the platforms, which it did very well.

    Bloody whiners.

    How stupid do you think most of us are? Of course this thread was made to feed the ego of PC gamers. We all already knew you could UPGRADE a pc for almost as much as it costs for a console....Difference being a console will have at least 5 years of life where as a PC will need to be upgraded in a year.Pros and cons. we all OWN (we know this by the fact that we are here in this forum) pc's and already know what goes into PC gaming. In order to not having to upgrade your PC in a year you would have to get a 6 thousand dollar PC. something that would be a waste of money for me because I dont game a lot on PC...I use it for its intended purpose to look up porn ...... )

    I think it mostly had to do with the fact that it was mental masturbation for PC fanboys.

    Whatever man. If that's what you genuinely think then I think you're a bit insecure. I stopped reading your post at "where as a PC will need to be upgraded in a year.". I knew you were talking out of you ass after that point.

    If I wanted to feed the ego, as you put it, i'd compare PC gaming at the absolute best. You know, 4K resolutions, triple GPU set ups and all that stuff that would make a PS4/Xbone look like a previous generation. But I didn't. This thread was comparing an entry level PC to a new console.

    Seriously. I make it no secret that I prefer the PC as a platform to the consoles, in all my years on here I never have. But it makes me laugh how some of you take a thread like this as an insult. But it is the hypocrisy that makes me laugh. You're (not you specifically, a generalisation) quick to mock the Xbone for being weaker saying you'll wait for games on the definitive version yet you get bent out of shape when in the VS section a more powerful platform jumps in.

    You clearly weren't interested in the OP so why did you even post?

    who said I was insulted? Just because I dont fawn over fanboys doesn't mean I am insulted....By the way you do have to upgrade every year IF you want to play the newest games at their highest settings. Especially if you upgraded you PC to play like a ps4. It is a draw back to PC gaming. I dont blame the PC I blame the game developers. They get better $#@! then most of us and thus make games that way. The good thing is that because of consoles they at least make it to be ported and thus making it easy for those who dont have 300 bucks to drop each year. if your just going to game on your PC it isn't cost effective.

    No, Chris, you can't just come in and say you go where you most enjoy the games. That's far too plain and reasonable.

    Which is something all gamers in general exhibit, and really has nothing to do with the current thread.

    That's not true. Someone who games on PC would know better.

    You are right though in that the developers don't utilize PC hardware well at all. That is a definite shame.

    So I built a gaming PC for my son for Christmas. Actually, I bought him the parts and taught him how to build it. I had a small budget to work with cuz.....well....I have a wife. And well.....there it is. Anyway, thought it might be good to have an actual breakdown for someone who just went through this.

    *ASUS A85XM-A FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard $77
    *AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - AMD Radeon HD 8670D $140
    *Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory $50

    Total: $572.

    Already had keyboard, mouse, and monitor. And you don't have to change those things out that often anyway.

    So this isn't nearly the fastest gaming PC out there and it certainly doesn't rival a PS4, but he loves games like Arma 3 and they play great (no idea what FPS and stuff like that). The GPU is integrated with the CPU, but I knew that going in. The motherboard does have a slot for AMD Crossfire if he needs to upgrade his video. Or if he needs a newer video card, we can disable the Crossfire and go with something beefier.

    Now I am a console fanboy.....that much we know. But as far as the costs for PC, I'm not seeing it being that high based on what we did. The bold items will probably never need to be replaced unless they go bad (possibly hard drive as well). The motherboard, CPU, memory cost me about $260. Those, along with the video card, are the most probable upgrade items. But in two or three years, I really don't see much problem spending the extra dollars to beef it up some more. First thing I'll probably upgrade is the memory. Think I went too cheap there.

    So big edge in convenience for consoles, imo, but not so much in costs that I can see.

    Not sure if it would have died, but it was certainly floundering for quite some time. Steam definitely breathed new life into PCs.
