Why do PC gamers get so defensive when someone prefers consoles?

It goes both ways. I grew up with both.

Started early with Doom, Quake, Unreal Tournament, Star Craft, etc. PC versions of games have more freedom and higher replay value. Most if not all (can) look better than consoles. I'll get mostly single player games for PC now. The mouse gives a lot more control over games than a control stick. I wouldn't say it's as expensive as people make it out to be. I never lost a PC (or 3) to RROD or hardware failure.

Started with an NES and consoles are just easier to deal with. Friends and family are more likely to have a console opposed to a gaming PC. You can't play split screen on a PC either. The amount of friends I have that own a 360 (or PS3) blows the PC friends list away. I have also met just about all friends online through XBL. Multiplayer gaming is definitely easier to organize and have fun with using a console. It couldn't be easier and trouble free.

But this is just me. I just prefer them for different reasons.

They get defensive because consoles are making huge leaps in technology every gen getting closer and closer to pc levels, yet consoles will always remain under $500 and their pcs still cost 1500-2000. That's why in a nutshell.

actually next gen tech wise is the littlest leap the consoles have had in a long time. PS2 to PS3 for instance was probably a 40x leap in power. It was actually pretty insane. ps3 to ps4 (and most likely 720) is estimated more around 10x.

in comparison to prices the ps4 uses a custom ~$200 graphics card(right now, less when the system actually launches) equivalent while the ps3 and 360 used $300-400 pc equivalent graphics cards at the time AT LAUNCH.
