The PS4 is going all PC on us and we are wondering what keeps you coming back to consoles anyway? What's unique to the console world?

Dude the PS2 emulators thats present usually have a clumsy time trying to run a game at a stable frame rate. Even then with a gtx 560 it still has a problem running a PS2 emulated game, even though it can play BF3 on high settings without dipping below 56 fps...

I can just imagine downloading a 20gig chunk of internet computer stuff, and then trying to run the game through an emulator... Not worth doing dude...

"Imagine How Sony feels about that"

It hasn't bothered MS all these years.

OT - The only reason I need it the fact that I've tried PC gaming a few times and always returned to console. For me, consoles serve my gaming needs just fine and I have no interest in gaming on my PC.

My question is more like
Why not just make the PS4 a PC also?

For the same reason that consoles have always been the primary form of videogaming: accessibility. Even if all consoles could play were multiplats, they'd still be more popular than PCs.

It's just easier and less expensive. Plus some people prefer to game comfortably on their couch/bed and not be tied to their desktop. You can work around that on a PC, sure, but it isn't as simple as just plugging your console into your tv.

PC gaming performance graphically degrades over time, too, which is a major issue to me. What may be a stunning Ultra-Resolution-Setting gaming rig today may only be able to handle games on medium/low quality a few years down the line. Console games on the other hand just keep getting BETTER with age. The older the console the more familiar the developers become with its hardware and the more capable they become at milking it for all its worth.

Graphically PC's will always be better than consoles but for a lot of us it isn't worth the time, money and headache to really keep up with the ever-changing market of graphic cards and processors.

Plus it's really nice to be able to buy a game and just KNOW it's going to be able to play. With PC games you need to make sure it's compatible with your system or else you may end up getting sluggish performance, or not even be able to play at all. Consoles on the other hand will always play the game.
