I personally play on PC, PS4, and PS3. I like Sony's exclusives and love the design of the Dual Shock, but I do like playing some older games on PC.

Just the Wii U. The other consoles are just gimped PCs otherwise. Their exclusives aren't worth the other $400+ I'd have to put out to play them.

For current gen just the Wii U, the others are a waste of money with crappy game selections and i can't go back to paying online to game.

You love the Dual Shock? that would be a world's first.

PC only now. I owned every major console from the NES to the PS3/Xbox 360 generation. Got involved with PC gaming in the mid-90's and then stopped until about two years ago. Switched to PC only in 2012 and am content with my decision. I thought about investing in a PS4 but always go back to thinking about PC.

A lot of people are very fond of it.

I personally love the fact that no game (aside from RTS, of course) feels gimped when playing on the dual shock controllers as reaching every part is easy and comfortable, and each part of the controller is responsive enough to do the job well. Xbox controllers do not offer this IMO.

Consoles don't interest me. The last console I had was Dreamcast. But even then, I had started playing on the PC since '96.

You don't own an Xbox console, so I can't take your opinion seriously. In my opinion, the DS3 is a terrible controller, a revamped version of the outdated late 90's Dualshock, my hands have grown over time and the controller is extremely awkward to use. If I could play PS3 games without third party software on an Xbox 360 controller, i'd do that in a heartbeat.

I find more value with a PC than consoles. I need the functionality of a PC and programs like word processing, web browsing, and programs to edit stuff. Playing games on PC is just a bonus. You can't do that with a Playstation or Xbox. A console is like a toy, IMO.
