By: Voltrom Sun, 07 Apr 2013 19:30:58 +0000 What were are talking about is “which is the better gaming platform”. Technically speaking an i7 pc tower & your average Xbox are two different things. We are talking about TWO industries. One being gaming machines only used for that sole purpose. And the other for personal computing. It’s been many years and you can still go to Walmart and buy halo 4 and play it on your dusty Xbox 360 first gen from the closet. Why is this? Becuase this is how it’s designed. It’s remarkable efficient and low cost becuase this is the “video game” industry. It’s been happening for consoles. That’s their ONLY purpose, as a pc is a operating system used for whatever. Like someone said above me, it’s a tool. And does the PC have amazing graphics and mod capabilities? Yes,, even better than console. But it’s harder to code & costly to produce.

Two different things guys,, obviously the console industry will be on top.

•More Games
•Less Cost
•Faster Production

By: Wyst Mon, 31 Dec 2012 03:08:58 +0000 PC is clearly the superior gaming platform just because it does everything that consoles can do, does it better, and then offers more. It’s a bit more expensive in the first place if you have to build one from scratch but games are so much cheaper that in the end I wonder if it’s not more expensive to play on consoles. (especially if you want to play online)

Let’s list the pros :
Better graphics
Smoother games
More game types
More, and sometimes better controls (M+KB for FPS and pad for action games for exemple)
Modding community
Better and free multilayer (check BF3 map size on consoles and PC)
More exclusive titles (indie games more often then not though)
Great indie scene

By: ALLEN2 Mon, 24 Dec 2012 23:21:45 +0000 With consoles i cant:
Change my FOV
Disable graphic settings i hate (depth of field)
Use dedicated servers with my favorite map
Steam advantages.

By: levi_barrocas Sun, 23 Dec 2012 11:24:26 +0000 Srsly,intros are a demonstration of graphics a console can make? I am very impressed to see an article this dumb here.

By: spankymcspankerson Sun, 23 Dec 2012 09:13:12 +0000 Clearly, it is NOT a hard choice…you mean to say? Really hgoel? How is this even up for discussion. Some people really do not have a clear grasp of what they’re talking about sometimes before they commit to spewing nonsense. I can tell you right now, without a shadow of doubt, that my current rig can already outperform the next generation of consoles before they’re even released. This article is a bloated joke akin to reading some bullcrap fear mongering on Fox news. Really damn close.

Such rubbish.

By: xpl0s10n Sat, 22 Dec 2012 18:07:02 +0000 If you want to get the most out of your games you need to spend the money on a good PC. Examples,

Battlefield 3, 2x the player cap online games. I only play 64 player servers on this game, try that on consoles.

Skyrim, HD Texture pack not available on xbox or ps3, also have you ever compared loading times for this game on console vs pc? Literally 10x slower on consoles.(only tested on xbox..)

RTS GAMES. #1 Right here. Try playing a good RTS on a console, I know there are a few that do okay, but its worlds better on pc. Company of heroes, Starcraft 2, Wargame EE, man could go on forever on this one.

I’ve been building my pc for the past 2 years putting in new parts when I can, fx8350 gtx560 x2 SLI, 16gb ram, 256 SSD and 1TB HDD.. Maybe next gen consoles will push specs better than this but until then I’m good with my PC.

By: hady Sat, 22 Dec 2012 00:50:42 +0000 a pc is a pc its does more things than the gaming console and it’ll always do , but when it comes to gaming . consoles will always win ..why ? because of 1st party studios . games like GodofWar HeavyRain Uncharted ..etc will never come to pcs that why ill always buy gaming consoles specially sony ones 😛 😀
