5 Reasons Why PC is your Best Choice for Gaming!

 

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$
PS3 300$
PC 1000$

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.

 

3.Better Hardware!

System Xbox360 PS3 PC
CPU 3.2 GHz PowerPC Tri-core Xenon 3.2 GHz Cell Broadband Engine Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz 3.8GHz Turbo Boost)
Storage Capacity 250 GB 250 GB 4TB+
Memory 512 MB of GDDR3 Ram 512 MB of GDDR3 Ram 8GB+ of DDR 3 Ram
Graphics 500 MHz ATI Xenos 550 MHz NVIDIA/SCEI RSX ‘Reality Synthesizer’ Radeon HD 6990 4GB 256-bit GDDR5

 

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.

    I used to be a PC gamer and have always known that PC cannot beaten, not now, not ever. PC is and always will be the best.

  • Consoles ftw

    I still think consoles are a better.
    1.Instead of playing on a chair a foot or so away from the screen, I can relax and sit on a couch and play on my 50 inch tv
    2. If I have friends over consoles are clearly better for that.
    3.Consoles are extremely cheaper, how could you even compare that?
    4. I don’t really see much difference between pc and console graphics, especially when I’m playing the game.
    5. I prefer buying a disc instead of a steam copy anyway. So if I want to I can resell it.

      Erm, ever heard of using a gamepad?

      1. Most (if not all) graphic cards nowadays support HDMI. YOU CAN USE YOUR TV.
      2. I’ve heard that argument too little, especially considering it’s one of the good ones. +1 to you.
      3. Do you have a laptop? It probably cost a bit, even if it sucks. Take the price of said laptop and add it to the price of your console, and it’ll probably be enough for a good pc.
      4. You’re blind
      5. Opinion, can’t really argue.

    1. A PC can just as easily be hooked up to a 50 inch TV. In fact I can hook my computer up to my monitor and TV both at the same time if I want to… not that I really have a reason to do that. Anyway, not only do I have the mouse and keyboard, I’ve used a 360 controller, a PS3 controller, and a Wii remote with all of its connections on my computer.
    2. Consoles are better for when friends are over. A PC can accommodate the input of all that the consoles have but there isn’t really an experience like Rock Band, Kinect, split screen multi player, etc on PC. It also lacks fighting games.
    3. Consoles are cheaper but a computer is not solely a gaming machine. My computer is more than any current console will ever be.
    4. There is most certainly a very drastic difference between the way that games look on a console versus how they look on a PC on high settings. It’s gotten to the point for me that PC is the default platform for any multiplatform game because the PC version is almost always without fail the best version. I might get the console version if I have friends that I may want to play online with.
    5. Wanting to own a disc over a digital copy is certainly understandable but I’m not sure that saving money is the most accurate reason for why. If you buy a console game for $60 and manage to sell it for a very generous $30, you would still come out behind someone who very likely could have bought a digital version for $25 even if they can never sell it back.

  • http://YourWebsite... Waitwhat?

    @VS Adding to your #5- If you weren’t the type to resell your games, there is the possibility of said disc becoming damaged (whether through replay, children, forgetting to put it in it’s case) etc Whereas a digital copy, even if you uninstall it from your computer, is accessible via steam/origin/w|e

    I admit, I don’t generally play games for their graphics- but there is no denying that when it comes to doing so, PC’s are by far superior. PCs are also upgrade able and longer lasting- games will continue to be made for PC, have a SEGA or PS1? Good luck finding new games for it.

     Two of your points are incorrect. A gaming PC always costs far more than a console, even after accessories. Also, games can be purchased digitally on consoles as well, so that argument is moot.
