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..
Well, here is the problem
Consoles will cost about $500-$700 after initial setup (Console, cables, mics, extra, and of course, games)
And they break far more often, and are under crappy warranties.
PCs cost around $1000 to start, and can live for decades. On top of that, you can get games much cheaper, and the quality is much better.
Hope that clears it all up.
