Playing Call of Duty with a controller on pc just means you get owned over and over. So if you prefer controllers consoles are better for certain games. Also some games aren't played anymore on pc but are played on console
Pc is more customizable and can run better graphics if you can drop a lot of cash on your rig. Modding is pretty fun too, but makes everything more prone to crashing. Console you can run games at great graphics for less. Lots of console exclusives too. All in all pretty evenly matched and only faggots would say one is better than the other
There are no advantages of console gaming. PC is objectively better in every way. Console players who say consoles are better are generally too retarded to build a PC or have never played on pne at all
Consoles are made to appeal to the masses. They exist solely to provide a locked-down platform and revenue from the premiums necessary to access that platform.
They have no technical advantage. The only real draw is exclusives, and their very existence is an unfortunate (from the view of the consumer) "benefit" that is, once again, geared toward making money.
Consoles exist, quite literally, because dumbs can't into computer and would rather shell out hundreds or even thousands extra to have something that "just werks". The release of new consoles also provides the NEW! BETTER! MORE EXCITING! novelty that the average consumer eats up.
There is no appreciable technical hardware difference between a console and PC anymore, at least in terms of tangible functionality. It's all redundant hardware, it's just that each platform allows you a ladder into the walled garden the manufacturer would like nothing better than for you to enter.
For just a small fee and a limited time, of course.
> Can pick up a used xbox one for 200/300 > works on any tv > pc users try tell me I can build a pc and buy a monitor and a mouse and a keyboard and a desk to sit it all on for the same price. > MUH PC MASTER RACE has no solid argument other than "yeah well pc is just better"
XBOX 1 IS THE DEFINITIVE GAME PLATFORM FOR GAMERS THIS HOLIDAY AND GOING FORWARD. NO OTHER PLATFORM IS AS POWERFUL, SLEEK AND INTUITIVE AS THE XBOX 1. 4K REZ, 120FPS+ LAG-FREE GAMING, NO OTHER COMPANY CAN COMPETE. 90% MARKETSHARE WILL BE ATTAINED, AND LORD SPENCER SHALL BRING LIGHT TO THIS DARK INDUSTRY. @ZootPlays
Immidiatly cheaper, less shit tier games to sift through before checking out the good ones, controllers are FAAAAAAR easier to use then keyboard (ive gamed on both for years), they do need replaced every ten years but i never have to worry about one little virus wrecking my whole operating system and losing all my data, can maintain a console collection without internet connection, it goes on and on.
>>646961404 >graphics Card is outdated the minute you instal it >functional I use my pc to save pics, music and watch porn. I don't use my Xbox for any of that >more than games You can watch YouTube on a console top faggot. I'm sure one of those kids >multiple screens Why is this is a good thing again? I can just buy a big tv.
>>646957705 PC has standardized hardware which allows you to upgrade with time and replace parts whenever you need to. A $500 budget PC is a much better buy than a console because it will perform better longer. The keyboard and mouse is a much better than a controller. Most of the games worth playing are missing from consoles because consoles are completely missing entire genres of games like grand strategy, RTS, flight sim, space sims, etc. Windows has a much larger library of games and emulation expands on that even further. Even the games that PC and console share are much better on PC because of better graphics, fps, mods, etc. PC also isn't just a gaming machine so you can do more than just game on it.
>>646961404 > graphics at a massive price increase > mods I'llgive you that, I do envy that > cheaper games shit games usually are cheap > more functionality like you're ever going to use Microsoft Excel at home > backwards compatability xbox one plays 360 games now > used for more than just gsmes see above > multiple screens well I only have 2 eyes, multiple screens seems like a novelty, if you have other shit running while you game then you clearly aren't into your games that much
>>646958191 Do you live in the USA/UK? of course consoles are popular among casuals and normies OP, don't listen to consolefags >Better graphics >Better performance >Cheaper games >Discord >Pirating >Mouse+Keyboard > Controller >Can choose whatever OS you want go with pc
>>646961398 Literally autism GabeN blesses glorious PC users with the gift of steam sales Have fun spending $60 on your Just Dance 2k15, NBA 2k15, and Call of Duty AW Not to mention that several genres like MOBAs are IMPOSSIBLE on consoles without making them severely simplistic convert now peasant
>>646962848 >Implying PS4 and Xbox One are worth getting fuck gaystation and jewsoft, Nintendo has the only consoles worth getting yeah, in 2004 you could get away with selling an xbox for trillions of shekels, but this is 2015, and the consumer knows stuff about technology, even if its very little
Console: >Your average-joe uses it so its more likely your friends or people you meet will have them >Games that are made specific only to those consoles >Low amount of maintenance, just charge your controllers pretty much
PC >Potential to be give the best/fullest gaming experience image and performance-wise >Cheaper in the long run >Games can be torrented >Can be used as a normal computer when you're not gaming >Way bigger selection of games >You can build it yourself so it can be custom to your desired aesthetics >Can have multiple moniters
>>646963125 Also to add on this about people complaining about the price. You can build a pc that will run games on medium settings just fine for 250-300 dollars. That is of course if you just want to run things. Which of course isn't nearly as expensive as a brand new console so price really shouldn't be why you decided to buy a console. Also if you can't afford a monitor just hook up the damn computer to your tv. Unless you know, have a 10 year old tv.
> console Plug and play. No fucking around with settings. Almost 0 customisation for controls. Games are built for the machine so usually make good use of all resources available. Usually a new one comes out every couple of years.
> PC Gotta get settings right for the machine. More functionality. Pretty much everything can be customised. Mods for everything. Machines vary greatly, so most devs go middle-of-the-road techwise to increase sales. More potential power than any console, but gotta upgrade every fucking 6 months just to keep up.
>>646963856 The thing is though you're just not listing actual facts. You can download any game for your pc, the only real hard part is knowing if your computer can run it or not. You can play it right away most games setup the settings for you. I've never had to fuck around with settinggs unless I was raising them to ultra. You don't have to upgrade all the time. I've had my gaming pc for about 4 years now.
>>646963572 I used to prefer console gaming but as I got older all my favorite nostalgia games would require me to have kept all the old consoles because fuckers at Sony refuse to make system backward compatible.
>>646965353 I'd say fuck the comp and put it on my mortgage.
But if I had to.... for about1300 I could put together a machine that flattens any console out there and stay good for the next 2 or 3 years. And that's paying retail for the parts. For 2500 I could buy a premade machine that would match a ps4.
The rest could then be spent on giant monitors, a cinema-style surround sound system and oculus rift tech.
>>646957705 all my mates have consoles, few have pc's. i have both, i have games on pc and generally buy single player games for it but multiplayer games i'll get on my xbone simply so i can play my mates online. if i could persuade them all to get pc's then great but they are console people. i dont care what platform i play on aslong as i enjoy my gaming experience and that generally happens on consoles.
>>646967494 On pc you have to sit up unconfortable chair and have a girl sit next to you akwardly. On console your on the couch chillin. Just swap the game to netflix and fuck her on the couch and after your done go back to playing metal gear
>>646959430 It's because you're naturally a lot more accurate with a mouse since you're using more of your body to control it. A controller simply uses your thumbs. Almost all console games have some sort of aim assist built in to counter-act that fact. So if you have bad aim then you're going to be shit at PC Gaming.
Consoles have exactly two advantages: Higher efficiency due to uniform structure and drivers - you don't have to build or patch anything. Lower system cost due to economies of scale - ready made PCs generally cost more since fewer of any given model are made.
Guys you're using the xbox one wrong. I myself thought it was for gaming too, then i realized it's a waste basket. Microsoft has outdone themselves with this next gen waste baskets. The ventilation vents work PERFECTLY for catching vomit! Pic related, this was mine after its use! I recommend all console owners to realize that all consoles are are waste baskets! Anyone who claims to be me after this post is lying unless he has timestamp.
>>646967979 chair? what the fuck? i have my pc hooked up to my tv so i use the same screen for gaming regardless of pc or console. or maybe you live in your mom's basement where you cant do such things.
Console "peasant here" The few advantages would be >if you prefer a controller, nobody else has superior mouses >some exclusives, halo blah blah >easier to play while sitting in a sofa (???) >... >????? Tl:dr personal preference
Consoles are nice because you generally don't have to fuck with them past buying them. Plus, they're purpose built, and don't really allow you to break them unless you're a complete idiot, uploading flash drive software, OR if you own an Xbox 360. Those 360's are about as reliable as a 90's Mitsubishi shitbox.
PC's are nice because they can be built to higher specs than consoles and be future proofed, meaning less money spent overall. There are problems though, sometimes you may want a game which is unfortunately exclusive to consoles, and PC's have a higher possibility of contracting viruses, especially if you think that hiding behind 7 proxies and using Norton makes you safe.
Long story short, both are pretty great, and then again, both suck at the same time.
>>646968447 LED tv, computer monitor.. much difference? pretty much same shit, my tv is bigger than my pc monitor but both are hooked up, use tv for games, watching films, use second monitor for general pc faggotry.
>>646958758 People who prefer controllers do so only because they're used to it. When I switched to pc I stopped using my controller after just a few games because I realized it was capping my skill. Now a few weeks later, I'm better with a keyboard than anybody could be with a controller.
>>646968415 I was just playing gang beasts with the girl on my small beastly GTX970 i74790k MITX PC setup under a 60" TV, 2 Xbox one controllers. pretty much use that PC over any console sitting next to it b/c steam big picture and.. it's a PC I can do whatever.
>>646969282 agree with this. i like using a controller for gaming, and use one for my pc too. just cant get to grips with k/m but i do appreciate they are much better if you can use them. i'll stick with controller and not ashamed of that,
>>646969198 We all know the type: >Fat pale girl obsessed with Inuyasha. She's my gf on Friday, Steve's gf on Saturday and Tom's gf on Sunday. During the week she just wants to be alone and play WoW but will hook up with random Chads when she is in the mood. We are poly deal with it vanilla!
>>646970335 aye, love forza. probably most played game with mates. cant do that on pc. which is a shame, microsoft should allow windows users to play xb games on pc, although it would kill the need to buy an xbone in the process.
PC Pros - Massive Library of Games. - Easy to pirate games. - Mods for games. - Larger online options (more players). - Better Graphics. - Backwards compatibility with ancient games. - Can do a plethora of others things besides gaming. - Don't have to pay for a Live / Plus service.
Idk only reason I'd ever get a console is probs Bloodborne but then again PC spoiled me with 1440 144fps free online compatibility with every controller from every console Steam being fucking glorious with sales etc etc etc so meh >PS4 >No games.
>>646971589 That's because Steam is cancer. It's pretty easy to spot PC casuals by their love of Steam. >hurr I love restrictive licensing, impossibility of resale, online authentification, DRM and overpriced games that get discounts sometimes
Console: More convenient, standardized platform, unified functions for social networking and gaming, simple to operate and relatively inexpensive
PC: More powerful and dedicated gaming platform,broader range of functionality, more complex to operate and games are not 100% guaranteed to operate like other computers' counterparts, generally more expensive >pic related
>>646972140 Consoles are going to start going that way too, all because game companies are asshurt that they don't make money on game resales. EB and that is fucking shit, but they have to make money somehow since they make fuck all of the games themselves.
>>646972625 I'd say if you have a hobby of building then PC all the way. If all you want to do is play games then sure console is fine. I hold a responsible career and have a wife and kid. I happen to also game on PC.
>>646957705 Once you add in the cost of TV + audio equipment you can build computer with similar capabilities + monitor and peripherals for the same price. You also have the option to spend a little more and get something much more capable.
>>646973135 You should take the tower off the floor dude. Putting it on the floor increases the dust it gathers by almost 70%, you end up cleaning it out a lot more often than you need to. Or you end up clogging the fuck out of your filters.
>>646972648 Haven't they already? I mean, to some extent a console is a Steam in itself, or vice versa Steam is a PC console. >Steambox Not saying Origin or anything is better, most alternatives are worse.
>>646973563 Steam is fucking stupid dude. You're exchanging rights to property and ownership all for a little ease of use.
You do realize that at ANY time and without reason Steam can remove any game it chooses from your service, or all of them, or outright ban you. You don't even have to do anything wrong or against the terms. And there isn't a single fucking thing you can do about it because you don't own the game, you're simply licensing the right to play it. Where as if you own the game, legally they have to have a valid reason for removing your right to play it.
>>646973563 Steam, like all content protection systems, isn't hard to crack. Even consoles get chipped. If there is an obstracle to piracy someone will find a way around it. Steam is little more than a waste of RAM most of the time.
>>646957705 PC has more games (but about the same amount of decent quality games... indie games are rarely decent for commercialization) and those games cost less if you download them illegally... or you could simply buy them from Steam when they are discounted... there's not much difference here.
Computers cost about 2 to 1000 times more then consoles (depending on the pc or console) but it's actually very rare to see a brand new computer that cost less then a brand new console these days even tho this is becoming less and less true as time goes by.
Consoles have everything except the TV, just plug and play. With PC you need to buy everything else you need to enjoy your games except the computer screen which is just a smaller tv when you think about it. Television and computer monitor are becoming so alike that there will be no distinction in the future.
Overall it's the experience that counts. You might have more fun playing online with your friends on a good PC game or you might enjoy playing alone on a good console game like Zelda on the wii U.
The choice is yours entirely. Do what you enjoy most.
>>646974108 I'm not so sure about it considering how hard people are eating up Gabens poop. SteamOS certainly seems somewhat unattractive, but in the end the Steamboxes are just a PC conforming to a certain framework.
>>646974910 In Ubisofts case it wasn't stupidity. It was fucking deliberate. They got fucking busted for it too.
In other cases, they just don't give a shit about PC gaming. It's a small % of the total gaming market. Something like Skyrim sold 2 million copies on PC... and 25 million on Consoles. They'll put more time and effort into what will net them the larger portion of money... consoles.
All resale does is ruin prices of lesser played games. Ppl who seriously think reselling a 60 dollar game you played with a shitty resolution and framerate is worth the 20 dollars you get back a week later. Console fags enjoy putting in a disc everytime they want to change what game they want to play
Some games are better on consople some are better on pc. Some games are only for console and some games are only on pc. That;s why I have both and just play the game I want don't care which one looks better I still play console bf4 over pc.
>>646976473 No it's not. They overheat, they're loud as fuck and often times their heatsinks fucking whistle.
There is a reason why AMD is close to going under. They just cannot compete. Even their card that was to be a direct competitor to the 980ti at the same price but with 2 gig more ram... still fucking failed to match up.
Did you know that the AMD GPU department is worth less now, than it was when they were bought out. They continue to lose market share in GPU's each year the GPU department hasn't made a profit in over 5 years.
>>646977166 > Even their card that was to be a direct competitor to the 980ti at the same price but with 2 gig more ram... still fucking failed to match up. And it had to come with it's own watercooling unit because of serious heat issues.
Anyone who is arguing on price is a poor fag as price is not relevant to most, I don't care if I can get a console for a few hundred I'd rather my 3k pc any day of the week. The experience is so worth it. 144hz, Ultra detail larger scale games and being able to play my old games I loved without needing to re buy them or horde consoles. My hardware because I buy enthusiast grade gear has great resale value and we next gen for PC comes round I will only need to upgrade one part not the whole thing.
I see the appeal for the console but honestly its for casuals. The price argument is horseshit.
Microsoft invented Windows. What do a majority of PC users use? Windows is 99% market share. Microsoft also owns the console industry. End result? Microsoft OWNS the gaming industry - deal with it faggot. @ZootPlays.
>>646977716 AMD can't even come with a stock cooler or you'll light your computer on fire. nVidia can at least handle the heat even with reference cards. You just can't OC.
>AMD has only lost significant market share during the last year. They've always had low market share. Intel has the most because of onboard chips, but when it comes to actual cards, nVidia has always been king and now AMD is not just behind but massively behind. like 14% market share compared to 86% for nVidia. >There have always been periods where one or the other made better cards.
No there hasn't. nVidia has always made the better cards over all. Sure AMD can sometimes match the specs, but they have to OC the shit out of the chip to do so, and thus create a lot more heat. The fact is nVidia is just better. No matter how much you tell yourself you AMD card is comparable... it's not. You made a shitty purchase, learn from your mistake and next time get a real card.
>>646973972 Not quite entirely true. They can't take away your games 'for no reason' without full refund. They don't need much of a reason, but they need a reason. They can also pull support for a ame at any time, but they usually disable the DRM in those cases.
There's also not a lot of options. Most games require a steam account. So you either use it, or you limit yourself. Or resort to piracy.
Won't be long before consoles do the same. How many games need an internet connection even for single player? That's a type of DRM right there. And if you read the EULA, you almost never 'own' a game. Only the right to play it.
>>646978787 Look it up nigger. They had about 1/3 market share, but this declined during the last year since they are fucking up. Likewise, get educated. nvidia had exactly those problems AMD has now in the past. And get fucking educated again. >what is GF5
>>646979327 Short of being a game that I need to play online, or has some good online play (like GTA 5) I won't buy a game that needs a service. Witcher 3 was probably the easiest game in the world to pirate as it was DRM free... yet I bought it.
>>646979585 You're the AMD fag and you're telling me to get an education? Seriously dude AMD has never really been any sort of competition. Keep trying to justify your stupid fucking purchase all you want but know that it's just that... a stupid fucking purchase.
Console Master Race. I for one have many gaming consoles and a gaming PC, and much prefer consoles for various reasons. >can play couch co-op with friends >much prefer competition on console when using controller >console only games like the last of us which are 10/10 >cheaper and will last at least 7 years without ahving to upgrade it >everyone for most part has same playing field, ie nobody has $100 precision gaming mouse >my console is far more portable than my pc >I play on a 60" tv compared to a 19" monitor, yes I can use HDMI, but no. >can buy share and trade used games with friends but really the deciding factor for me is the co-op. I love playing sports games with friends and you just dont do that shit on PC.
>>646983729 >can play couch co-op with friends Debunked. >much prefer competition on console when using controller Casual/seal clubber. >console only games like the last of us which are 10/10 So are PC only games. >cheaper and will last at least 7 years without ahving to upgrade it Also outdated compared to PC on day 1. >everyone for most part has same playing field, ie nobody has $100 precision gaming mouse Poorfags... >my console is far more portable than my pc Buy a smaller PC. >I play on a 60" tv compared to a 19" monitor, yes I can use HDMI, but no. Buy a cable then. >can buy share and trade used games with friends Sometimes, as can PC sometimes.
>>646984660 >Debunked? Prove me wrong? >Ya sorry gaming is a hobby not a job. >Name to me some 10/10 PC only games. >My PS4 right nows graphics look nearly just as good as high end gaming PCs. The difference is extraordinary unless your rig is really beefed up and that costs lots of $$$$. >well I earned 113k gross last year so I'm not a poorfag >You arent getting a PC smaller than a PS4 realistically >No, I'm not buying a 45 ft cable for that bullshit >Sometimes, as can PC sometimes. Nope. I can borrow 5 different console games from a friend and within 5 hours I can play each one, cant do same with PC.
tl;dr you are a neckbeard fedora wearing fat fuck who still lives at home who likely works at Wendy's and spends all his money on gaming and weed.
>>646984660 You will be able to play some of your fav games for years without worrying about hardware on a pc. Sure it won't look as good but some people don't really care. I mean I have bf4 on pc but I still play it on the 360.
