PC already cheaper than next-gen console, just for hardware

Not factoring software markup on consoles
Not factoring in Sony's layers upon layers of paywalls and lockouts
Just a straight price comparison of a desktop tower(AR) and Playstation 4.

Edit: should be consoles. Wii U can be topped by a AMD APU build with similar parts.

Isn't 2x4GB RAM cheaper than 1x8GB RAM?

Linux is free, nobody needs an ODD anymore, and it does come with a controller.(and a huge software markup, and a bunch of paywalls and lockouts, and a whole lot of bull**** in general)

Linux is free

maybe; but it's not going to play the majority of PC games, so why build a gaming PC in the first place if you'll only use Linux

true to an extent, but still not a fair comparison

I didn't see a keyboard and mouse on that partlist

It'll play more games than PS4 does
Console vs PC is never fair.(for consoles)
PC doesn't stop you from using existing peripherals either.(plus, you can find those on the side of the road anywhere)
