Your time, your money so spend it how you want.

I just want to point out an obvious error in that one of the more interesting parts behind the Steam Box is that PCs can be hooked up to a TV and played with controllers. Since they can be made console size, and console price, the only thing it won't do that a normal console will is have across the board compatibility.

PCs are infinitely backwards compatible. Any game released on any system (with a couple of exceptions, mostly the Gen8 consoles) can be played on a PC.

nothing wrong with proffering consoles. a lot of your points are quite valid, however you then throw in some really stupid **** which is the backbone for a lot of pc gamers dislike towards the console audience. If certain things arnt viable for you then fair enough, but its not indicative to the platform as a whole.

the desk argument is crap. you can hook up your pc to any "big screen tv" and use a controller for most games now even for fps. most of those "AAA" titles are also available on pc and pc gets its own high budget titles, sorry if they may not interest you, but there still there. there are plenty of pc games that dont require you to sink dozens of hours of your life into to get anywhere. lots of smaller contained experiences. For the larger titles physical is still alive, its just in this day and age with everything going to the hdd anyway its become more pointless unless your isp has a huge cap. This is becoming more true for consoles as well. in another gen or two physical probably wont exist any more.

Lol @ the serious responses. Troll is probably living it up in his dad's basement right now celebrating eating a king size bag of doritos after setting this whole elaborate topic up from his mom's basement.

I guess it had been a while since we had one of these. Good Job TC. Look at all the people you snared.

Maybe this will inoculate the board against further infections by the console mindset... probably not. I give it a week at most.


I don't mind a well written troll - Like this one, it encourages debate, and once you ignore the handful of immature posts saying 'PC IZ BEST YO!' you often get some thought provoking responses.

So do I - why? If I boil it down to one reason: JRPGS. The vast majority of them get console only releases.


no they don't, the vast majority of them moved to handhelds. This isn't the SNES/PS1 era.
