I'm just curious what other peoples thoughts are on this. I can't decide if I want to spend a few more hundred dollars on upgrading my 5 year-old PC or simply buynig a ps4.

Is there any major reason I should be excited for sticking to PC or any reasons to go with a new console this gen?

Which system has the games you want?

That should be your only reason.



For me, consoles have virtually no games that I want. So I have no desire to get a console.

It sounds like the PC will need a major overhaul if it's five years old


Keep in mind that online gaming will cost on both the PS4/Xbone whereas it's free on the PC. It'll also take time before they lots of good exclusives

The only games that I'm looking at that I would really want at the moment are Kingdom Hearts 3 and FFXV.

I think my PC is around 5 years old...I could be off, I think all I'd really need is a new CPU and Graphics card, maybe some more ram, a solid state drive, and a new monitor.

EDIT: It's just a little over 3 years old.

Yet you've previously validated your hatred of PC gaming by claiming that you own a high end rig.

I love you Mangorush.

I tried to like the consoles this past generation but I've lost interest in them. I have a 360 that has been played twice since I purchased it. A Wii U that hasn't had a game purchased since last December and a PS3 that gets played maybe 3 or 4 times a year at most. That's my reason. I just enjoy PC gaming more and as a result I have less time for consoles.

upgrade your PC now, get a console in 5 years or something when KH and FF15 "hopefully" have been released by then.

i say hopefully because i don't put much stock in anything consoles devs/publishers say(lol@last guardian being touted as a PS3 game).

hell, the vast majority of games upon launch on both consoles will consist of multiplatform games that already exist on PC and that's the real direction console gaming is moving towards as well as more social features and all that crap that means nothing for games.

though i'm in the boat of wanting to upgrade hard right now, i would still wait till after the launch of consoles and until we know much more about the steam machines including average pricing compared to regular gaming hardware.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

You guys should upgrade your sound system to a proper 5.1 with a good receiver. It's really awesome
