I'm tired of these PC guys saying x1 is trash

Will a $500 PC run games better than the Xbox One in 8 years? Unlikely, due to optimisations being specific for one set of hardware (X1) and for multiple newer configurations on the PC.

What the TC (and seemingly everyone else) is forgetting is that by paying out more, you will still be saving money by going PC. Steam sales are a big thing, plus as a general thing, PC games are usually cheaper. To use the currency I'm familiar with, PS4 and X1 games are about 50. PC games are about 30. You pay extra for a machine that will last you 8 years, then you save money by buying the games.

At the same time, you can upgrade your PC slowly (new GPU, new RAM and so on) and pay out smaller sums of money to keep your PC relevant.

PC is the only place to play games at their true potential
1080p/60fps standard, upgradable, mods, FOV sliders, ultra graphics - it's backwards compatible too

I'm still waiting for POODGE or whatever his name is to tell me what card he has that has allowed him to play games maxed for 4 years, including Metro, Crysis 3, and BF4 with AA and AF.

It must be a magical GPU. He must have went to the middle east to acquire it. The same guy who sold Aladdin his lamp also sells graphics cards.

What do you define as a better system? To me it has to be software and controller.

PS4 doesn't have one remarkable game.
Xbox360=PS3>Xb1>WiiU>PS4

Not for nothing, but people who bought the PS4 are not people I would take any advice from. If I wanted to buy a console, it has to have games that I enjoy, and not just an upgraded looking last gen game. Hardware is absolutely worthless without games.

I don't know if I agree with your maths, there are too many variables. But I agree with the sentiment behind your post. The real issue is that without a LOT of research you could pay over the odds for a PC. The closed system approach of consoles definitely has it's appeal.

Although I was tinkering with my dad's new Mac Pro over the weekend. I haven't had a desktop in about 6 years. I downloaded steam, and f*** me! I'm starting to see the appeal of that avenue.

TC, this is the types of critisicm you'll get for your $550 Xbox One

"Titanfall has clear performance issues on Xbox One, but it's still a fun experience. However, when playing on PC, the fluidity in refresh, response and control is leagues ahead."

"On the other hand, this engine is designed to pump out a new frame every 16ms. Clearly it doesn't always manage it, but a drop down to single digit frame-rates would necessitate that engine taking 100ms to render the next image - an enormous amount of time"

"o be clear though - while this is an easy win for the PC"

Thanks for stopping by.

With my console, I do not have to worry about consoles coming out stronger next year.

Your cards are already 2 years old, and the 680 was more powerful. Eventually there will be one card to beat out your two cards.

Right now developers are still putting a lot of care in last gen consoles, and not many have fully committed themselves to this gen yet. I think when that happens, and we start to see more and more games that look like Ryse and KZ4, you're going to be struggling with your set up. Your PC is nothing more than something that plays last gen games really well. I would not consider it future proof at all. My XB1 will always play games, and in a year or two I won't be the one concerned about upgrading.

That is why it is better that the xbox one does not act like a PC.
