Do I really sound like a PC Elitist?

Nope. They're equally horrible. And to me, it seems like you're implying those types of fanboys are a lot more common than they actually are, in an attempt to make it seem like console people are worse.

i agree, that's why there's an ongoing feud between all PC elitists called PC wars... oh wait.

So i guess i was right. And do you really think PC gamers wouldn't be doing the same thing if the "PC" wasn't a single system?

yeah, let's deal with what if's and hypotheticals instead of addressing what's right in front of you.

hell, it speaks volumes that these are the type of "gamers" the industry just looves to cater to:

all for that little bit of superior feeling in owning one small box that holds a miniscule amount of franchises(and absolute s*** like exclusive preorder or timed DLC) hostage over another near-identical box that does the exact same s***, yet is supposedly "so much" better.

because people are just that stupid.

Eh, we've mildly started to see stuff like this with SteamOS and claims of Linux becoming a larger target for PC Devs.

Still not even in the same ballpark as Console wars. But in a few years I can easily see something similar starting with SteamOS.

i really don't see that happening at all unless they start to charge twice for linux and windows games.

I'm just saying don't act like PC gamers are superior beings that would never engage in such petty squabbles.

As for the rest of your post...

This seems like a personal problem.

i already stated above that PC elistists think they're better than console gamers which obviously means having no problem talking s*** about consoles, console games, superior graphics etc.

however, console fanboys on top of being anti-PC being able to turn around just as fast and talk s*** about other consoles and especially console games for the lone reason of the games not being on their own console? that is by far worse, period.

This seems like a personal problem.

yes, i personally despise the current console industry(console industry =/= console games btw) and the way it's handled because of how it affects PC gamers and you should too.

eg. watch dogs scandal as a prime example, another one with "exclusive" console dead space DLC being hidden in the game files of the PC version etc.
oh hey, the article i linked is even about EA perpetuating the console war... no surprises there.

What's worse is the fact that if you even mention PC gaming, good graphics, 60 fps, 1080p or higher resolutions they instantly turn on you and say how PC gaming sucks, they won't ever play pc because it's full of hackers and pirates and elitists, etc, etc. All without any provocation at all. The term console elitist should be a normal thing because I see far more of them trash talking PC gaming than I do PC gamers trash talking console gaming.

I think you'll see it come to a head if/when devs start coming out with linux only stuff. (Not anytime in the near future)

Man, I miss the days where people were gamers and would stfu and just play games. Why do you even care if some random guy called you an elitist anyway? Everyone knows PC is better, but some point down the line, every console has an exclusive that PC players want to play/vice versa so they're gonna buy a console anway. Also some people find PC gaming too hard for some reason/get a console to play with friends. If you were a true gamer, you could play both PC/Console games and have fun still. Even if console gaming seems pointless now, so did the 360/ps3 but they had some games that made "Elitist" buy a console just to play. But yes, seeing as how you got mad someone called you an elitist, i'm going to assume you are. Just on the fact most elitist get mad when they get called out for being one
