PCMag: “I jumped ship from consoles not because of a lust for specs and raw horsepower. It was the mental clarity and convenience.”
Just read the article and honestly can't figure out if it's satire?! You know what also can help improve your life, writing articles that don't sound so pathetic. Even if it's satire, is not a good one. I'm a Pc gamer but please don't try to convince yourself it changed your life. Maybe on your next article you can tell us all how eating tide pods changed your life for the better and after what i read, it just might...
I believe he was talking about a simpler life as moving towards one platform while you could use both the XB1 and PS4 controller. That is if you are willing to not buy first party Nintendo and Sony games which is easier said than done.
Sounds just like me...been getting rid of my consoles after I upgraded my PC's GPU to a GTX 1050 which is just as powerful as the XB1 and PS4 (consoles that I have not bought this gen). I'm hanging on to my handheld consoles due to the high GPU prices but once I get my hands on a next gen GPU, it will be GAME OVER for consoles for me.
You sound like my best friend just before Uncharted 4 was released. Now he own both Uncharted 4 / Horizon Zero dawn for example and loved them on his Pro. Now he's back with "I never get a PS5 because my PC is SOOO good ;) BUT... we all know he will buy a PS5 and VR 2.0 when they arrive because he can't pass on great tech. I play LOTS of games on my PS4 Pro -AND- my PS3 so I'm kind of old school that way. But you sound like most of my friends/workmates who is stuck with "power this and power that"-mentality and if they release let's say a God Of War patch for the PS5 and let's assume it does over 4K in resolution, your 1050 will look like crap and I guess you'll back in the console world again, or what do you think ?! ;) For me, playing games / exploring new worlds and places / getting new experiences is more important than raw power (although it's a nice complement). Too each their own. :) Game on :)
how he become a dickhead for doing so\
why not have both....PC, Switch, PS4, 3DS, Vita.
I own both. My life is just fine.
Why not have both
why not just PC is there a reason to own a console except for the games they lock down for artificially boosted sales
The title. If you need any to improve your life there's something wrong with your life lol..
Most of the games play are exclusive to PlayStation, and I have a gaming PC.
This is not so much a story about PC gaming as it is about de-cluttering your life. You didn't need to abandon consoles to do that. The current generation can be had in all-digital form, if you so desire. I have well over a hundred current-gen console games now, and only two of those are in disc form. I too moved on to PC gaming, or I should say back to PC gaming, because I was into it before console Gen 7 as well. The end of 2016 was the perfect time to do it too. GPU and memory prices now are stupidly out of line. You're right that PCs are now much more tractable for the average Joe. Once you have a competently built and set-up system, things just seem to work well without a whole lot of extra effort.
Until you realize you miss out on some of the greatest games ever made.
