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?
Its simple. U wont be able to play sony 1st party games on pc. Heres a couple games, Uncharted series, God of War series, Warhawk, Heavy Rain, The Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, and the list goes on. Shinra Tensei
Sez who? Ps4 will easily be emulated and soon all software available on Pc and on bit torrent sites. Imagine How Sony feels about that
You mean like the PS3 and 360? :/
You act like it wont happen to your favorite system aswell. Stop being a hypocrite & just go with the system u dig or own em all. Have a good day sir. Shinra Tensei
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.
Cuz all my friends are on PS that's why.And we never have to worry if our machine can play an upcoming release like on PC.Now let's stop this fan boy crap and just enjoy our games OK? *Goes back to KZ 2*
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.
^ ^ ^ He's right you know.
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.
can not believe how aggressive pc owners and pc only developers and outlets and companys who build them have been towards next gen.. I Wonder why? Could it be there graphical crown has been stolen by a device way cheaper and not at risk of constant marketing campaign to buy the newest greatest chips to upgrade so you can play games that will never really take advantage of that upgrade for years to come , never mind the upgrade that shortly comes out a week Later by a different company which is more powerful again.. And there lies my reason not to choose a big box pc over a gaming console which not only gets dedicated games but all the best from pc also , albeit a lower res and frame rate maybe( i inserted that fact before pc fan boys do) have a good day.
Pc games are cheaper, dlc is free on Pc, games run better even on medium hardware. On Pc you CAN play on any smart Tv at home via streaming, Like i do, even on the bathroom!!! You have To understand Pc is open format, it dépends on How many games you buy , bt on a 2 games/month basis at the End of a year you saved about 200/300€
Console gaming is better. Console gamers don't have a deep internal need to suck through their braces while touting their specs as Jesus-like. Console gamers get the best exclusives, best controllers and have great experiences. PC gaming is fun too of course, but it's nowhere near the level of console gaming. Way too much to miss out on. I would have asked the question in reverse.
I like gaming on consoles better because consoles eliminate many of the hassles that are associated with PC gaming. Gaming on PCs are great but i prefer a system that´s dedicated to games over one that does everything. Also i love Sony exclusives which is something that i will never find on a PC. On a side note: Im really thinking about building a cheap PC good enough for MMOs or buying an alienware X51 (due to its console like form factor)
