I'm just finding it hard to find why people choose PC gaming over a Console, PC's are often more expensive than a Console and don't really have the exclusives.
I am building myself a Gaming rig due to the fact I have the money and nothing else to spend it on, I can also use this Computer for Photoshop & video editing.
Sorry I found it a little hard to explain this thread clearly, but I just can't see how PC gaming is better than a Console.
Also, how has long Steam be in Australia because I only heard of it the other day..
You probably had a computer anyways, right? Most people do. They usually spend around $300-500 on a computer and also buy a $300 (launch price) console. Take that $500 and the $300 from the console and build a gaming rig for $800 and its the same price. Obviously the enthusiast will spend more but the average gamer can get by with an $800 gaming PC.
