Anyone here only have a PC for their gaming needs?

I have a Gaming Rig and all the modern consoles but sometimes I wonder why I even bought the PS4/Xbox One/Wii U since I never really play them. Been too busy playing all the Steam games I bought and I have such a backlog I'll be busy with them for a while.

I have bought every major console since the NES. Until this generation. Since I almost never bothered with my 360, PS3 or Wii, I'm just not buying PS4, Xbone or Wii U.

I mean, maybe in the future I'll pick one or two of them up for cheap if there are a bunch of games I really want to play on them. But nothing has been released or announced that I'm that psyched for. Infamous looks kind of good, Uncharted 4 would be too. But I'm not buying consoles for games I'd play for a few hours, finish and then forget about.

I'm happy that PC is getting multiplats fairly commonly. There are a couple of games like GTAV and Bayonetta that I really want to play, but I can't justify getting an entire console just for them. My PC and 3DS are good enough.

PC MASTER RACE

I may buy a PS4 or XBONE one day when there like $249.99 and have a lot of games out that are cheap buy then. Right now its just a expensive waist of space and its still to early to tell if the systems with have an RROD/YLOD type problems. I don't mind getting a new revised version in the future.

But who knows, by this time the Haswell e's will be out, plus lik ethe 9 series of graphics cards and such with even fancier stuff on the future the consoles will be even more of a joke then they are now, even if they do have a couple nice exclusives.

I do have a 4 year old also so I wouldn't be surprised here is some sort of console purchase in near to mid future.

So true. I play my PC, 3DS XL, and Vita way more then I play my PS4, Xbox One, or Wii U.

The last console I bought was a PS2. After that, I found that more and more of the games I wanted to play were on PC or would eventually be on PC. There's just nothing exclusive to consoles that I want.

Also my TV is 12 years old and isn't equipped for modern consoles anyway (I really need to figure out a good way to get rid of that). I'd actually have to buy a new TV to decently play Console games these days.

Mine is the complete opposite. All my friends have consoles and my PC sits unloved. I might play a game on it once in a while. But other than that, its a great netflix rig.

I could never do it... I have no interest in most western-developed sandbox / fps multiplats and while I like having a few games on PC in high-res maxed out (MGR Revengeance / Lords of Shadow / DS2 / Portal / The Witcher / 2) they simply represent 5% of the games I actually want.

The best uses my PC gets is 6th gen console games in 1080P and beyond, and even with my 4670k @ 4.4ghz that is still quite a hassle to get working smoothly and without screen tear.


Right now my top systems are PS3, Wii U, 3DS, and Vita. PC is fifth. No interest in PS4 until its library fills out with exclusives and I will never buy X1.
