Having an better overall online multiplayer experience because PSn is gated by PS+ and not free like the PC.. This means the majority of players are adults or people you know you can trust because they have a credit card

If we're starting from mostly scratch, here's an assessment:

Chances are you probably already have a decent full HD TV by 2017, so you already save money from buying a monitor (assuming more people own laptops over desktops these days). PS4s also come with a blu-ray drive which most assembled gaming PCs usually never include. If you don't have a keyboard or a mouse, you have to buy that too but a PS4 comes with at least one controller. A PS4 is also very easy to use, and you won't have to worry about hardware or software problems generally, nor do you have to run the hassle of assembling. With easiness in mind, consoles fit pretty well in living rooms so you can sit on a couch and play-- that's not to say you can't do that with a gaming PC, it's just less hassle.

Edit: also a uniform multiplayer experience + little to no risk of hackers.
Oh and exclusives baby!
