Is this the biggest myth when it comes to PC gaming?

^ That. More people tend to trot out "I can't afford a $500 graphics card every 3 months" than the couch/controller ones.

The fact that you have to build it yourself, I see that as the biggest drawback for the general masses.

That and if you want a pre-built it cost way more then it should.
*Projectile Vomits* Those prices are fantastic!

^ But what's a few hundred every few months compared to the initial minimum of one million dollars to build a decent PC?

Right?

RIGHT!?!
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

yeah the cost one is still pretty widely regarded as true among the unwashed masses, especially right now(since most people look at the PS4 at $400 and think "if it costs a GAMES MACHINE $400 to do that, how much would it cost my facebook machine!?!?!?!")

A gaming computer costs 4000. I just had that experience this past week. My friend wanted me to build their kids a computer and was willing to spend 4 grand.

Console gaming is more "convenient" even though most of the time playing a game is as simple as couple clicking the desktop icon...

2000 will get it done. The extra 2k just future proofs it for a year

console gaming is way easier than PC gaming... you cant ignore this fact. I'm not saying building a PC is difficult, but it is a heck of a lot easier to buy a console and controller... plug it in to a TV... and you are done.
