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

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.


Console gamers don't take Steam sales in account, PC gamers don't take PSN bonuses. Seems fair to me.

You still pay for PSN bonuses. PC gamers don't pay extra for the steam sales...

Assuming you actually care to play the sub par free games


To be fair, most of the games offered are not really "sub-par"...

This. There is also far more productivity available to you in a gaming PC as well, so we might as well include the cost of a laptop in the console's price if we're going to do an unbiased comparison.

Considering I have PS+ till 2018 and that I only paid 2 years in total, I won't.

You own a PC to own a PC, you buy a video card to play games.
