"Yeah, I said it. Don’t waste your money on an Xbox or a PS4 for that matter. Over the past week, I have decided to start my transition into PC gaming. Facts are facts."-DigitalWhip
Sorry but i like the idea of being able to carry my PS4 with ease and not having to lug around a big tower.
steam machine... or a small micro ATX tower. mine is pretty small.
"I just built my PC last night and when it was all said and done, I spent about $850 on it. Seems incredibly expensive but you could get away with not even getting a super high end graphics card and you could still play most games as good as people on current gen" So, am I reading something wrong or this guy just told me to build an $850 PC to play games that look like current gen? But hey, you can keep throwing money at it by upgrading every 2-3 years.
@Heavy- My build with the 760 will out perform the PS4 and Xbox no problem.
@steves1126 "My build with the 760 will out perform the PS4 and Xbox no problem." Except maybe we like the console exclusive games? I know I'd never leave Sony just because their amazing 1st party games. I could care less about some better graphic quality if I don't have that.
Seeing as it's my money, I figure I can waste it if I want to. I will likely waste some of it on a steam machine at some point in the future as well.
PC gamers don't seem to understand that we don't care!! All the gibberish they spew to try to get us to start up on PC doesn't matter, we're console gamers. Nothing said by ANYBODY is going to get me to all of a sudden get into PC gaming. I don't understand why it matters to them so much, or really care that we don't want to game on PC. I'll spend my hard-earned cash however I want, and play my games the same way thank you very much! EDIT: spelling errors
We all know PC's are better graphics-wise and cheaper than consoles in the long run. Nobody can deny that. We are console gamers by choice. Not because we don't know any better. Consoles are a better gaming experience to us and the many casual gamers.
Sorry, but there's no way im missing out on console exclusives. No way.
That is one thing that i will struggle with. but i got my ps3 just after uncharted 3 came out and i had the pleasure of playing all of them in a marathon... one of my greatest experiences ever. i could always do that again when the games are like $35 and the console is $299. thatd be awesome.
Fair point, i only got a PS3 in 2011 so i had a pretty big backlog of exclusives to play, but i think this time i want to experience all exclusives at each of their release dates. I think i will consider getting a PC later in the next gen consoles cycle, when they start to show their age.
Not sure if gamer or looking for clicks?
I'm sure: not gamer. It seems like the closer these consoles come to releasing, the more PC elitists seem to feel threatened. "Don't buy a console! Join us on PC! We're so lonely!"
65 million people compared to Xbox lives 45 million. I have both but facts are facts. and we arent threatened, we are trying to inform you that PC gaming makes sense. open your mind.
Xbox isn't the only console, add all the people on PlayStation and Nintendo to that 45 million. Facts are facts. We are all informed about PC gaming, we have our good reasons to want to stay on consoles.
You should open YOUR mind. I was referring specifically to PC elitists... hell, I even said PC ELITSTS. That obviously doesn't mean everybody. Not to mention, your numbers would have some significant amount of overlap, as plenty of PC gamers on Steam- I'm assuming this is where your number comes from, as it's the only source that makes sense- also have an Xbox, or a PS3, or a Wii/Wii U, or any combination of the aforementioned consoles. Even so, the number of unique console owners- here, should we add in handhelds, which are fielded by two of the three console manufacturers, and can also be added into the online users(the only number you're using for your argument, which is already flawed because it can't count offline setups for ANY platform)- is likely two to three times higher than that of unique Steam account holders. Facts ARE facts, but it helps when you have ALL the facts, or as many as possible. PC gaming is fine. I'm not some child new to the industry that you need to "inform" me. By the same token, however, console gaming makes sense. So you go hop back in front of your monitor and do your thing, and I'll pick up my DualShock3 and do mine. Sound like an open enough mind for ya?
I'm never leaving console gaming as long as Sony's first party studios are making games.
Why do PC users insist to always try and convince console gamers to build a gaming PC? If you enjoy your PC, fantastic, but to tell someone not to buy a PS4 or an Xbox One is a little egotistical.
because PC guys are :) http://i.imgur.com/pH9U5.jp...
Because they can't understand why gamers prefer console over the PC. It's kind of like trying to convince someone to bake a pizza from scratch instead of calling Dominos for delivery or pick up. Making your own would taste better sure, but it would cost more time & money plus there's more clean up. It's easier to just get it delivered, or pick it up & chow down. It tastes great & you get full. Either way the same thing happened. You ate a pizza, enjoyed it & got satisfied. Was it really worth all the time, money & effort for that homemade pizza? To some it is, for others, they say, "Screw that" & put their order in at Dominos either for pick up or delivery. They don't give a sh** about homemade pizza or how much "better" it is. They just want to eat a freakin pizza Lol.
I'll be getting an x1 in the future cuz there som real cool exclusives I'm definately not missing out on
I won't waste anymore time on this article.
and miss out on crackdown 3 and other exclusives, HELL NO!!!
I love gaming on my PC...but there are far too many exclusives for me not to buy a PS4. That will be my primary gaming machine for the next 5-7 years.
That's 65 million PC gamers that are on medium to low end pcs why do you think wow is successfull.only 5 percent have or will ever have a rig that can play bf4 on ultra settings.
it doesnt have to be on ultra to outperform current/next gen. but you are right, not everyone had to spend the same amount of money, but that is whats great about PC you can slowly build your pc into a monster if you want.
I don't want MS to fail b/c competitions is good for the gaming industry.
Gaming on a PC can be really cheap, cheaper than most people realize. You don't need some insane rig with two enormous graphics cards and spaceage processors with SDDs, you can get by with less. You can get a decent graphics card for just a little more than the price as a new console game that would be able to handle gaming just fine. If you're building from scratch its more expensive but most people could probably upgrade their current PC fairly cheap. Still if you don't have the PS4 you're going to be missing out of a lot of fantastic exclusive titles. You don't have to worry so much with One since pretty much all of Xbox's 'exclusive' titles are on PC. PS4 + PC makes a really killer combo.
I will spent my money on PS4 and Xbox One . I not will take PC fan advice for not buying PS4 and Xbox one , still he didn't convince me with a good reason . All the PC titles will be released months after Ps4 and X1 relese . Next generation consoles are very similar to PC , and yes , with budget of €1000 you can buil super computer ! And yes PC is going to be far advanced in graphics than PS4 and Xbox 1 BUT the games are available on next gen systems IPs . I will spent my money where is the fun is .
