Consoles VS PC: My Mock Interview with Sony & Microsoft

Soon after deciding to pass on next-gen consoles in favor of a gaming PC, Gamers Association editor Luke Frazier was quickly confronted by Sony and Microsoft as they attempted to change his mind. The following is a transcription of that discussion.

[Or maybe it's a silly article explaining his reasoning for choosing a PC. Either one.] (Culture, PC)

Good interview, even if it was a mock-up of one. I'm also supporting the PC more and more.

The Glorious PC Gaming Master Race!
I dunno what to think of when re-reading this article as I always say consoles and PC Gaming are two different worlds.

People play consoles cause they enjoy the console experience and it's games.

I play on the PC cause I enjoy PC Games and a custom fit gaming experience like having Peripheral View in FPS and Racing games!

play on what you want and what's within your budget!

Happy Gaming!

I'm not much of a PC gamer, but lately been thinking about going back for the full graphical experience.

However, I just enjoy the turn on and play on the big screen experience. Sure I can do it on the big screen, but even turning my PC on to play a movie seems like a hassle.

SSD bro... SSD

my pc cold boots in 10-15 seconds and warm wakes in 1.

and i mean really awake. like already browsed to n4g cause i could start clicking immediately and ie opened instantly and n4g loaded instantly.

if you want proof i will put up a video just for you.

woops i underestimated

so its 15 seconds to boot and im on n4g.com by 32 seconds. cause i have to login and n4g is not my homepage.

just timed it with my cellphone. :)

thats the honest truth.

if you had a raid 0 setup with ssd you could probably cut that in half. :)

I do use SSD, and even with Vista the computers feel snappy. However, once you pop in Windows 8, the difference starts to feel negligable.

The turning on the PC part is a hassle is more to do with interface (and a sprinkle of boot time, etc). Using a mouse/keyboard to navigate the computer and so on. I tried to buy different types of keyboard/mouse combos to mitigate that, but still, not as nice as starting the Xbox 360 with the remote controller and then sprinkle in a little Kinect Voice recognition every now and then.

Steam big picture mode though definitely helps and I hope Valve makes a PC box. I might just buy that if it runs Window 8. I want the faster and snappier OS while also still able to play blizzard games!

Dude your PC just SUCKS Bro! Don't blame PC Gaming cause your PC is Lame.

I'm not being rude but the moment you said " even turning my PC on to play a movie seems like a hassle" lets me know your either Technologically Challenged or your PC is Lame!

I can Skype, download/upload, encode video, browse the internet, watch a movie, and play a game all at the same time!

Sure I'm an advance PC user with a kick butt PC but I still can't understand someone having a hard time turning on a PC and double clicking a movie to play.....easier than wiping off a dvd and getting it to play!

if you PREFER Consoles then just say it but don't make up crap to in an attempt to make PC Gaming seem difficult when it really isn't!

that's like me saying "OMG i hate walking into the Living room and spending 5 minutes looking for the remote before i can turn on the tv and set it to Aux input to play my console"!

Did you even read what I wrote?

The PC shortcomings I mentioned has almost nothing to do with the hardware and almost everything to do with the software.

"if you PREFER Consoles then just say it but don't make up crap to in an attempt to make PC Gaming seem difficult when it really isn't!"

It is more of an inconvenience that I rather not have when there is an easier option, even if it cost more sometimes.

This was the nicest, most level-minded batch of N4G comments I've ever received. Thank you dearly!

PC's are for ppl who want more.

In my case:

Connect to two External Monitors for work.

Lcd tv for when I wanna watch things big or play on my couch with a controller

Turning it into a home theater by just moving my Alien lappy into the living room. Dont have a BOSE (would kill for it lol) but a decent setup nevertheless.

Most times its on my desk when Im working or playing Diablo or some strategies, mmos etc.

My Alien lappy is more powerful and way more portable than a home console for sure :D and can make it adapt to what I want to do with it and where.

Now for a console:

Well a living room/bedroom situation is all I see with this. Basically couch/bed and play.

Like I said earlier PC's are for ppl who want more and console are for those who just want to game.
