    This thread is about why you should kill your console and switch to PC this features a roughly $600 build this doesn't include a Mouse or Keyboard or monitor which are Highly recommended. If you want a cheaper one which isnt as recomended feel free to ask

    UPDATED BUILD

    This is a chart that gives you the idea about how much cheaper PC is and the build I made is actually very similar too the build I have listed. There are other reasons why you should switch

    Better Game Selection- PC has a better game selection overall you can't deny it there's multiple stores to buy from, tons of free games, lots of genres not widely available on Console.

    Better Graphics this is very obvious one but its another to add because we like beautiful games and if you don't then would you rather play watch dogs or battlefield 4 on a NES or a PC?

    Mods - PC has lots of Mods that can improve games/ make new games out of old games, Modding is frowned upon on Consoles and some Developers on PC go out of the way to make the game friendly to mods.

    More Hardcore/Casual - There's more super hardcore players and we all seen those guys playing StarCraft for hours upon hours without stopping and then there's casual players playing Minecraft or casual indie games.


    There's many more pros to be listed but I don't want this thread to be too long

    I have enough money to buy a PC, I just honestly can't be bother. I don't even play games that much now. Dark Souls 2 was the last thing I really got into and I'm bored of that now. Also the game looks the same on PC as console, only difference would be the framerate so I really have no reason to sink over 1000 into a PC that would most likely just collect dust most of the time.

    Also when the fuck is image resizing gonna be fixed on NGU images being cut off all the time is really fucking annoying.

    EDIT: I actually have built a Desktop PC now, put windows on it played fallout NV for a week then got bored and formatted and installed Arch on it and I've not played games on it since, in fact... I still play on my PS3 more.

    is this even relevant? Not everyone cares about prices. I like console gaming more, im a PC gamer also i just prefer to play on a console, its alot easier sitting on my couch in front of my TV with a ps4 controller in hand than sitting at lets say a desk or table on a desk chair holding a mouse and using the keyboard. Not to mention i wont have to go and upgrade my PS4 tomorrow when a whole new set of hardware comes out for PC gamers. Don't get me wrong i do appreciate the better graphics and flexibility of PC gaming but at the same time i prefer the comfort and simplicity of console gaming meaning i don't generally have to worry about my games crashing because my computer cant handle it or having to sit there and deal with some companies anti-piracy non-sense, OR even some online games frustrating connection issues (Not saying every PC game is plagued by these issues just general examples). Its just easier to go buy a PS4 and sit comfortably in front of your tv and play a game with friends in all of 20 seconds of turning on your console. Also i wouldn't really say a better selection of games on PC the PS4 and xbone have been out since what November or something? so none of us really know what type of games they're going to have in the years to come everything you've mentioned is so biased because you PROBABLY only play PC and nothing else, so obviously you're going to have a hard-on for PC just like console gamers have a hard-on for consoles but the really childish thing is that PC gamers are starting to willingly enter the so called "console wars" acting like their shit don't stink, AND there are plenty of hardcore gamers on consoles they have tournaments with million dollar prizes among other thing's. I'f you're going to sit here and tell me how much better PC gaming is AT LEAST get the other side of the story. Because you obviously know nothing about console gaming. But the PC gaming community thinks they're the best ever because they have this and that so i know I'm just going to get bitched at for this post. Just another reason console gaming is better in my opinion.

    Dark souls is going to be a fairly good mod platform on PC and yes that bug is annoying it cut off the video in my sig

    The PC I made the is perfectly fine to play battlefield 4, on high at 1080p at 55fps which is a pretty good feat. Also you can use a controler on PC. And you can make new friends on PC because you can never have too many friends

    I'll most likely build a PC this summer but I am still keeping my PS4 and all the consoles I have. I love playing on consoles because there is more people to talk with in console and most of my friends play it. I was always use to the controller on the console but I guess when it's time to switch on PC, I'll be use to it too. I really hope the PC I am building doesn't cost alot and I really want it powerful and last for quite a while hopefully.
