But despite maybe some choice hardware companies (some of which already have deep stakes in the console market as well) there is no one, large corporation with a deep marketing budget, aiming specifically to get people to become PC gamers. The fact that there are so many PC gamers in spite of that says a lot about the quality of the platform.

I think plenty of people underestimate the effects of marketing, in a way, and this shows it. Anyone watching TV or reading basic ads isn't going to be involving themselves full-fledged in the discussion, just like how many of us probably don't know the intricacies and controversies of buying the right kind of salad dressing; it's just not a very big part of our lives.
It's PC gaming...You play on a gaming pc once and you never want to go back.

PC gaming is truly on another level of quality.


Better graphics, frame rates, less lag, being able to customize maps and download new ones! Being able to mod the game, radically change the graphics to whatever your heart desires (for free!)

Now there's a couple features that consoles have more often than PC games (theater mode anyone?)
But it's really not as significant compared to what PC games (usually) have going.

Plus the DRM is not that bothersome. I have 40mbps down and I always pay my bill.

The only real concern that is valid is if Xbox Live gets hacked and goes down for months like PSN did. That is a real possibility and would make it so no games could be played. It hasn't happend to Live yet and its been up for 10 years.


Plus Sony is Skirting the DRM question by saying "Its up to the developers" If the developers put the effort to make a DRM system for their Game, to work with Xbox One, you can bet money they will include it on the PS4.

I guarantee YOU none of my mates will be buying a xbox one. All you need to do is listen to what they are doing .. and just laugh and move on. PC gaming is the winner in this. I will check out the ps4 and keep a open mind, exclusives and what not, but if they do the same as xbox then it looks like i'm a pc gamer for atleast the next 10 years lol.
I'm back baby!!!

I do not like consoles, but many of my mates do. They have all told me as long as the games are good they are getting an Xbox One. I only Play Gears/Halo/Borderlands type games with them. The rest I play on PC.

I myself am trying to convert them to PC gamers and told them instead of dropping $500 on a console let me upgrade their home computers. Then they can enjoy the steam sales like I do.

That's so interesting you guys call your girlfriends "Mates".
We just say Fiances or significant others here in the states.

So much ignorance and group mentality based bashing that plagues society. I'm personally waiting until E3 to decide which one I want.
