Windows 7: PC vs. Console

Carburetor vs Fuel Injection... 'nough said.

Being said that, PC games (as of late) are being made with carburetors but disguised as fuel injection so... its a toss up!

Yea last console I bought was a ps2 and have been pc gaming since 2009. My bro owns a xbox 360 and it's nice but I rarely touch it and prefer my pc so much more.

What I don't get is that I'm told that there are more PC players than X360 and PS3 combined but for some reason, no one I know personally has a gaming PC. But it makes sense considering I'm in high school where people aren't too smart. It's not even the budget factor because my $200 GTX 570 makes Battlefield 3 better than it could ever look on X360.

Also, that freedom comes with emulation! Provided you own the game you are emulating of course.
Maybe they put the people that play games on Facebook into the pc player category.
That would skew the results.
Most people I know game on consoles.

My grandfather is a legit hardcore solitaire player. OG PC gamer for realzie!!

But in all seriousness, if you're comparing player bases and community sizes consider for a moment things like MMOs. The Steam community routinely sees millions of active players as well. But you also have to keep in mind that a lot of MMO players or even Steam users also have consoles. It likely isn't as arbitrarily split as this thread seems to be suggesting. A lot of people just game on what's available and convenient.

Consoles are good for the less tech-savvy and/or tight budgets. PCs are a lot more customizable and in many cases can offer better graphics for those with the hardware to run it (i.e. high end nVidia or AMD GPU, and a decent CPU like an i5, or i7). Many times, PC games can be "modded" (modified) to add new content to the game. Great examples of this are Garry's Mod, and Minecraft. Aside from that, sometimes consoles have exclusive titles not available for PC, such as Forza Motorsport on Xbox 360, and Gran Turismo on PlayStation 3.

Personally, I like PC and Xbox 360.

A $300 pc won't play GTA 4 just fine. A $600+ pc bought used for $300 could possibly play it fine.

And consoles are cheap.

He might have had spare parts like HDD, PSU, and case already. That can cut costs more than you might think. His definition of "ran just fine" might also be relative. Since something in that price range would run the game... probably on shit settings with 15 fps... but it would run without crashing!

Or... it could just be BS.

Well, then GTA 4 runs excellent on a $130 computer. I bought a new case for $130 and already had the $1500+ in other parts already.
