no reason to completely switch i play all games from vita to 3ds to wii-u to ps3 to pc and so forth. However if a game is multiplatform i will always get the pc version.

Mainly a PC gamer, but I do enjoy my 3ds, not to mention Smash bros is a thing among my friends. I love that game only reason to own a Nintendo console.

The next gen consoles have yet to have enough games to keep me occupied so decided to get a gaming pc instead. Steam sales are on of the main factors (336 games and counting) as well as mods add a lot of replay value and bug fixes to games. Also pc gets the best of both worlds as you can still use a controller for most newer games. I still play on the wii u and the previous gen consoles occasionally though for the exclusives but when you can get a game for a couple of dollars or preorder a game from gmg for $25 compared to the $60 to $100 for a console game the choice is obvious (I live in Australia so game prices are ridiculous).

Consoles just seem like weak PC's to me now.

Pretty much just summed it up for me. I'm not entirely a PC gamer, though and still play on consoles quite a bit. Sooner or later though, I plan on switching entirely to PC gaming. Consoles nowadays try too hard to be computers, especially with all the F2P games they have, the constant game/software updates, and all the social media bullcrap they have now.

This, as well as a jump in graphics and a general preference to M+K over controller.

I used to divide my gaming between PS1, N64 ,PS2 and PC but went full PC after seeing the PS3 being basically just a watered down PC ,I never went back.

Consoles died for me when the 360/PS3 generation started.
Nothing here.

Not really switching, but I currently use my PC more than my console for 2 reason:
- Have awesome experience modding Skyrim, Saints Row, Fallout, The Witcher, etc
- Emulator, now I can back up my PS1 and PS2 games on HDD and play them on my PC with better performance ( and save states lol).
I am proud to be weeaboo.
