Alright, first post on forums.
So, first off. I have a gaming pc, along with an Xbox and PS3.
Now, this isn't to bash on either side. But people always have
discussions on which is better. Lets get some things out of the way.
- Easier to use
THEY'RE * FUTURE PROOF *
So, for $400, the type of pc you get can't max out games.
Nor will it be able to do any serious gaming or editing.
I have a $400 build.. trust me. But it just can't..
In 2005, if you can build a pc for $300 ( Retail Xbox Price )
That in 2014 can handle games such as Call of Duty : Ghosts
( Call of Duty is Just a Huge Franchise ) I'd be glad to see it.
Most $2000 computers from 2005 can't run it as smooth as a console.
I'd like to see someone who has a gaming pc that can, comment down below
if you have video proof of it. Anyways, computer just get out dated much faster.
Now, you all are probably thinking. " Well, Optimised, you can upgrade your pc. "
True, you can. But if you build a $400 build, $400 cause it's the console sweet spot.
By 2018, you'll need to have upgraded the HDD, Motherboard, Processor, Ram, just to
be able to keep up with newest games. Graphics may be better, but your paying the price.
Game prices are * MUCH * cheaper than you'll find on any console.
Also, most games downloaded, saving the risk of scratching disks and laser burn.
(Let's be Honest, Who Uses DVD's on the PC Now a Days ) but being downloaded, games
load much faster and without constant studders. Games will also look better, that is, if you have
the correct hardware. But if you only have $400, your limited to the amount of gaming you can do.
BTW, I'm not mentioning exclusives because both have their own.
Nor am I going to mention emulators. As those also include piracy.
" It's not piracy Opt! " Yea it is. Making this as fair as possible. Stop complaining.
You can edit videos off your pc, again, if you hardware is powerful enough.
You can edit photos also. Even et into modding games, editing coding, html,
etc. Basically, you'll be able to learn more, and do more.
- Both Have Ups and Downs
- One more Serious the other Just for Gaming
It's basically what your into, most people are just looking for gaming.
Just to be able to turn on they're system. Navigate, then start playing a match.
Not really into all of the advanced editing taking place in After Effects for example.
If you buy a console. You'll be able to surf the web, stream, and play with friends.
Same with computers, but your basically forced to upgrade, or own outdated hardware.
Consoles offer you that * Guaranteed * that years from now you'll still be able to play.
Unless your a wii u gamer haha, but anyways. That's why most people lean that way.
They just wanna get on and game. Not worry about needing a stronger
graphics card to handle crisis 3.
Comment your side down below. Feel free to disagree with anything I've said here.
But, the side I'm having to go with is consoles. Mainly, just because, I won't have
to worry about upgrading any time soon. While as for a PC. You might as well
buy a new one after a few years.
Thanks for reading.
