How Hard Is It To Get Into PC Gaming?

"There's a clear divide between those who get their gaming fix on their home console, and those who play on a beefy PC. With the recent announcement of the PlayStation 4, fans from both sides have been clashing in a war of words over the advantages and disadvantages of gaming on home consoles and PC's.

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a big PC gamer, never have been, never will be. I've always been drawn to the ease of access of the home consoles, from the old SEGA MegaDrive right up to this generation with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a bit of Wii on the side. Consoles are relatively cheap and don't require a whole lot of technical knowledge.

That was up until a few months ago." - TGC (PC, PS3, PS4, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

its not that easy. If you just want to get a gaming PC that can play any game than you can get an alienware which are expensive, or if you would want to be cheap and be like a console gamer you have to find out what the games requirement is and then get the specific GPU's or cores. In console, it is just one set tech that can give games at any potential.

If you want anyone to take you seriously...

A - do research. The PC platform is growing.

B - don't be the guy that makes the consoles look bad

C - get an education or At the very least learn to spell.

I have a PC and a PS3, I will always have a PC and a console and I pity the fool who limits themselves to just the one option.

If I only had a PC I couldn't play games such as Red Dead Redemption, Uncharted, Killzone or Yakuza

If I only had a console I couldn't play games such as Grim Fandango, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., ARMA 2 Day Z and the good version of Minecraft.

I love games too much to be biased.

If they(Console gamers) are worried about the control scheme then just get Motioninjoy and hook up your xbox/ps3/whatever controller you want on your PC and play.

Simple.

it's not hard. No, it's not for everyone, but the average Joe can build a decent PC with no problem.

Or for those who fear that they might screw up a build, there are Websites that build them for you, now granted it'll be a bit ore expensive, and they might ship your build with an unreliable part or two, but PC gaming is SO accessible now.
