Can you build a $400 PC with as much muscle as a PS4?

Hard to compete with the price when they are getting the parts for a reduced price and selling each one for a loss; initially losing money. Not saying it can't be done (I'm pretty sure it can, actually,) but I don't feel like throwing together a build to see.

No.
Up to point, you can't beat consoles for their price vs performance ratio as far as hardware goes.

You can, but when you add Windows then it becomes more expensive.

Nope.

Cost always seems to be the straw-man. As if to say a Veyron would stop crapping on a City Golf simply because it costs more.

The PS4 has a sub fee for online multiplayer, and you'll double the price of your console over the next few years.

The discounts and free games subtracts that.

They're not free if you have to pay for them, pumpkin.

And PC games get much much cheaper.
