i love when comfort and controllers are peoples arguements when they fail to understand plugging a HDMI cable into your TV isnt hard at all. not to mention you could even go as far as buying the wireless 360 controller adapter thing to play wirelessly on your PC.

gameplay matters more isnt a argument either. with PC you get more controller options higher framerate which leads to much smoother aiming and controls generally (play BC2 and PC and PS3). higher player counts is a pretty big diff to. no offence but if you had that option on consoles im sure you would like it. why people dont like having extra good features and settle for meh is beyond me.

IMO the main 2 arguements you can make about consoles VS PC is friends who play on whatever platform and splitscreen. few games on PC have it (i know l4D has that mod) exclusives and if the PC port just sucks *coughcrapcomcough*


No, the real arguments are plug and play versus customization. Also costs plays a huge factor. Consoles for the most part take no effort (or hardly any) by the consumer. You put the game in and play. You may be required to download a patch or install the game but it's fairly painless and no searching required by the consumer. PC gaming is a lot more involved with a lot more options.

What I will say though is Sony has done a terrible job at keeping console gaming the way it should be. The updates are often and tedious. The PC advantages are poorly implemented like the web browser. k/m support is rare. Console gamers now have to sit idle while some games require mandatory installs.

Funny how Sony is actually pushing people into PC gaming.

A minor issue for some but for myself, I have multiple consoles around the house and setting up multiple PCs in my home wouldn't be very pragmatic. In addition, all my family and friends play on consoles so I have no motivation to play on PC.

If you threaten to quit gaming, please keep your promise ASAP.

''PC/360 titles are Microsoft exclusive meaning not on Apple or Linux, meaning the people who own Windows own 360 which still makes it exclusive''. ~Phamous1

Yes and I found it rather interesting. Jim Sterling does like to cause controversy but he does have a point. That article is actually related to my comment about how Sony has done a poor job at keeping what people like about console gaming while doing a great job at people wanting to get into PC gaming. They can't rely on exclusivity forever.

So this is all you have to offer is that it? A grammar error with one letter wrong? It's supposed to be compute, not commute. Anything else you want to add?
