Why do PC gamers strict themselves to PC-only?

Those elitists are certainly louder than most everyone else and you tend to remember them more but if you read PCH topics every day you will realize that a large percentage of PC owners have a PC and either a 360/Ps3 or both.

calling me an elitist is a soothing egostroke, keep it up

Do you have time to play 4000 games a year? Impressive.

However, us in the real world don't, so we pick and choose and prefer quality over just having a bunch of garbage because we can.

If you can afford pc gaming, you can afford a console on top of that. I have a PS3 and a Wii, I only played Monster Hunter on Wii, and passed maybe 3-4 games on PS3 in 4 years.

PS. Can't stop staring at sig...

They do not. There are tons of PC gamers who own consoles. In fact, most of the people I know who play on PC also have a console. Obviously, the PC gamers who do not have a console decided that they are better off only spending their money on PC. Probably because the games that they play are mostly on PC.

That is the case for me now. I actually have my XBOX 360 hooked up to my PC monitor, but next console generation I do not think I will get a console. I simply do not use it enough to justify the purchase. Personally, I would probably be better off spending a little extra money on my PC build.

In the past, I felt like I needed to have a console, since there were so many games that I would not get a chance to play otherwise. Console and PC libraries used to be pretty much completely separate. Nowadays, things are different. Most AAA titles are multiplatform. This console generation we saw that multiplatform releases were pretty much the standard now. Given the PC architecture of the next generation of consoles, I think that trend will continue. The PC is therefore now a viable alternative for a mainstream platform.
