i just could never get into pc gaming beside rainbow six and unreal back many years ago. conssole is just way less time and money consuming for gaming to me.

The money thing is a lie. It's roughly the same as console gaming. You can get new releases for nearly half the price of console counter parts if you know where to look.

Oh boy. It is very much your loss buddy.

You're free to prefer whatever platforms you want, but the "way less time and money" thing isn't really true in my experience.

I've been a console gamer for most of my life, but recently (in the past year and a half) have taken to PC gaming. Trust me when I say this, it is worth it. It's NOT time consuming, nor is it expensive. I got my PS4 with a game on launch for £400. In the UK, for roughly £500, you can build a PC that's more or less twice as powerful as a ps4. With Steam, game installations are now a breeze, and applications like Nivdia's Geforce Experience makes optimising game settings for your hardware just a click away. Plus you get the added flexibility to tweak settings yourself to get the image quality or framerate YOU want.

As for games, let me tell you about Watch Dogs as an example. It hasn't even released yet, but I am able to pre-order the game for PC for £21! It's £47 for PS4/Xbox One. That's a £26 saving on a game that's not even out yet! On average, if you know where to look, you can save ~£20/$30 on games when buying games on PC rather than console. That, plus the numerous sales on steam or humble bundles, all add up to the large savings you can make.

There's no reason why one should be only be a PC gamer or a console gamer. One can be both, and enjoy the best of both worlds.

Games on PC are almost half the price!Watch dogs PS4 £47,PC £26,Wolfenstein: The New Order PS4 £47;PC £27,98% of the coming games on PC are £20 cheaper;i really dont understand people saying that PC is expensive.It can be expensive in the beginning if you want to build a uber PC,but even then all the money save on the games,and no one needs a uber PC to play [email protected] high/ultra settings..!
