Only have a laptop, and it's not meant for gaming.

I already have a 360 and already have Live to play most games with my friends. Didn't see a reason in shelling out money for a PC when 90% of my entertainment comes from playing online with friends (none of whom play on PC).

I enjoy the 360 controller; I know it could be used on PC, but I don't have a USB connector for it, just a wireless controller.




And last, but certainly not least, I don't want to be one of those guys that goes to forums just to compare sizes.

Specs. I mean specs.

Only reasons to buy it for PC over console are mods, console commands, and potential for better graphics.

Since none of those things even remotely interest me, I really just prefer it on my Xbox. This way, my computer can stay at my desk, where it's far more comfortable. I don't have to go buy a wired controller or wireless adapter for my current controller. And I didn't have to risk my computer somehow not being compatible with Skyrim, a problem I've often had with PC games.

Plus, I got to be a beta tester for both Dawnguard and Dragonborn.

- comfort and convenience
- no temptation to use console commands to cheat
- once I DO buy this on PC, it's going to be so modded up to hell it won't be the same game
- I'd have to updgrade or buy a new PC to play this as well as my 360 does

Hah. This, I like.

Topic.


Because my laptop can barely handle Morrowind, let alone Skyrim.

alot of people don't have pc's that can run it. I myself had to upgrade my graphics card to play it at any decent quality

I share my PC with 2 others (4 when I got the game) and my console is only ever used by me. Work around their PC schedules or my own personal schedule...

That and I prefer gaming in my bedroom, where the screen is 47".

More comfortable playing games on xbox.
It gets all the DLC's first.
And the last time I played it on PC all my mods killed the game same files.

I find Bethesda games absolutely terrible and boring to play. The only reason I've bothered with them is because of the huge modding community around every game. Therefore I can't understand how can anyone play this on console.

Dark Souls I understand completely, but this? Are you roleplaying something in your head to make up for nothing happening in-game? Seriously.

I'd love to use mods and the like. Just can't afford a high end gaming PC right now
