First of All, I don’t intend to start a console war or something of that sorts. I am just trying to present my views on PC Gaming.
Now, let’s just talk about Gaming for a minute. You all have been playing video games since your childhood and many of you reading are still in your childhood. So has been the case with me. I’ve been playing video games since my childhood, and I still remember how much fun I had while playing that Mario game(It was my first video game) and since then, there has been no looking back for me. It’s always been gaming that made me Happy. At one point of time, I got so addicted to it that I couldn’t concentrate on my work. All I wanted to do was just sit back on my couch, pick up the controller and Play. Most of you might have gone through this experience(Only if you are an avid gamer). With the passage of time, I got bored. I left my console(Nintendo 64). After a Few years, I tried on Gaming at my friend’s place on his PC. I fell in love with it. After that, I got myself, a PC, and I don’t regret doing so, and just so you guys know I do have a PS3 and a Xbox 360, but they are nothing compared to the PCs.
I am going to state 5 reasons why PC is your best choice for Gaming :
1.PC has better graphics compared to Consoles.
2.Dont Whine about the Price……..You still pay the same amount for your console!
Shocked?Thought so. I’ve seen a lot of people criticizing the PC just for the price. You don’t judge a book by its cover,and you dont judge a PC’s performance by it’s price.
|Xbox 360 S||300$|
A “nice” gaming-PC will cost you about USD $1000-1300. Want your Xbox games in HD? Tack on the cost of a $30 HDMI cable, $50-60 controllers, $100+ headsets-$60/year Xbox live subscriptions, and the list continues on. Basically, there are hidden implicit costs on consoles that most consumers are aware of, and they definitely need to be factored into the price. So, the accessories plus the extra $10 a game you are spending a year (let’s say you purchase 10 games a year) closes the margin to around only USD $450. Not really that much of a nuisance when consumers were purchasing $600 PlayStation consoles a few short years back.

4.Games are easily bought online via Steam or Origin etc, No need to go all the way to the stores to get them!
On the Consoles,one needs the physical DVD/Bluray Disc to play the games and for which one has to go all the way out to the stores,wait in the line of thousands(It its Call of Duty),buy the game,drive back home and then play the game whereas a PC gamer just has to buy the game online via steam or origin and download the game and just play.
5.PC is multi-purpose!
All your consoles,Xbox 360,PS3,Wii are not capable of giving you the experience that a PC can give. Xbox might have Netflix,fm,social networking apps etc but PC can give you all of these and more. Tired of Gaming?watch a movie,done with the movie?listen to some music,done with the music?Chat with your friends on Facebook,See what your favorite celebrities are doing on Twitter or Watch Videos on Youtube . With one PC,you unlock all these perks and more. Its just the perfect deal.
