So...why would I need a PC when I have a PS3/PS4/Laptop, and Tablet?

what does having a PC have over getting consoles, and a laptop+tablet?

PS3/PS4 have exclusives like TLOU, bigger online community, and free games with PSN

I can game on my kick ass laptop, and take it anywhere with me in any part of the house. Can hook it up to my TV downstairs via hdmi, instead of lugging around a PC. And it's good for gaming, as good as most desktops, and it's one of the few that can be upgradable.

And I can game on my tablet, use a keyboard+mouse whereever I go, and it's comfortable.

people always overrate building a pc, but i dont see a point. PC doesn't have as much multi platforms or exclusives like PS3/ or Xbox 360 and that seems to continue with next generation consoles.

Why would I need a PS3/PS4/Xbox/any console, when the PC can run everything better.

PC gets a lot more exclusive games and games in general. PC has free online. PC has cheaper games. PC has mods to add replay value and improve games. PC has entire genres that are basically exclusive (TBS, RTS, MOBA, MMO). PC has more versatality in that it can be played with a controller on a TV like a console, or on a higher quality monitor, or with a keyboard and mouse for games that require more precise input and more buttons.

It's just overall better, but requires a little more work initially to get into.

Because Steam sales + patience means the PC pays for itself.

If your laptop is as good as you claim, you spent about twice as much on it as you could have to get a similar-performing desktop.

Also, there is no need to lug a desktop PC downstairs to hook to your TV. You can hook it up to your TV and leave it there. I guess if you're someone who has to game all over the house...for some reason...a laptop would be a good option, but that seems very contrived to me.
