Why Cant Consoles Catch Up To PC?

Because people freaked out when the PS3 was $600, despite how good it was.

How good it was? PS3 launch was a ridiculous blunder and was overpriced. And just because bluray players were obscenely overpriced as well didn't make the PS3's situation any better.

It was not even remotely overpriced. The hardware was great and more than worth the $600 for the time. And yes, BDs were ridiculously overpriced, it didn't change the fact you were still getting one for a fraction of what they cost, plus everything else the console had to offer.

Obviously consoles are released only every X years. In the mean time they have to use the same hardware.

The appeal of PC is a number of things. Personally for me, it is the games and genres on PC that are not represented on console. For all these games this has to do with the mouse and keyboard being the default input device on PC. This is why a genre like RTS does not work as well on console.

I like how the same exact responses just keep getting recycled over and over. Redundant ass mudutruckas.

It's weird that pirates would go from shore to shore looking for buried treasure,
when the real treasure was in the friendships they were making.

Somebody (potentially the same poster) could make a topic similar to this every week and people would still fall for it :/

Probably because MS/Sony don't want to lose money on every console sold like they did this past generation. That and the fact that even something average or mediocre in PC terms will still be a big step up from the old aging consoles.

Because console games have to be dumbed down for EACH other. We saw this is PS3 and Xbox360.

Even the the PS3 was more powerful the powers that be couldnt have a discrepancy in graphics difference between the two. SMH So developers program towards the lowest denominator of the two and will continue to be that way which sucks for console gamers.


Same reason why watch dogs was DELIBERATELY dumbed down on PC
