You can download a PC game illegally for free. You can't download a PS3 game for free.

Your argument is invalid.

If console gaming is so cheap then why do I have to spend $600~ in order to play Super Mario Galaxy, Uncharted 3 and Halo 3?

Now that Sony has patented new tech to stop used games on consoles everyone seems to be complaining. But the thing is that its been that way for PC games for ages. You can't resell or trade in a PC game. Nobody really complains about this.

I see people say some dumb stuff like how they are going to buy a Steam Box or go PC only next gen. instead of PS4 Well guess what if you bought a Steam Box or go PC only you won't have your used games either.


Try telling that to the PC games I've bought used kid.

You PC elitists should stop comparing consoles to PCs. Just because the PC games have this or that doesn't mean that console gamers should welcome this stuff and adapt to this stuff with arms wide open. Sorry, but personally, I like my options. I don't think the console side of gaming is quite ready to bend over for online passes, no used games, and not fully owning your game. Some, maybe, but not everyone.

Not every one wants to spend over $1000 just to have a gaming PC, that's crazy. I never have and maybe never will like PC gaming.

Except it doesn't cost $1000 to build a gaming PC. You can build one for $500 or less that will outperform the PS3 easily and play newer games on decent settings for years.


Lie. Unless you bought secondhand, your case and cpu are half/+ of that $500.


why would anyone spurge on Cpu or case?

It's almost frustrating. I find games I want for <$10 and buy them faster than I can get through them. I bought like a dozen ****ing games this holiday season and don't think I spent more than $50.
