I would have to disagree with you there, but I can see how many people feel this way. Graphically, yes the PC is the best. But graphics are only 1 part of gaming. The accessibility of the PS4 is why I am buying it. I can take the PS4 anywhere in the house, set it up, connect HDMIs, and start playing. There is no way that I can move my 50 LBS computer from floor to floor. With a PC, you have to click many buttons to go from your desktop to the game. I can't sit on my couch in front of the TV and move a microscopic pointer. That is what I mean by accessibility.
As for the value, the PS4 which is $400 right now is so much better than a $400 PC. I know there are some very nitpicky and pain in the butt builders who will argue that if you play your cards right and find a very good discount in a very specific window of time then you can make a $400 PC that will compete with a PS4. Well, I would rather just get a PS4 than mess with all of that.
Plus, Sony's in house developers are some of the best of the best. I went on and on in another thread about why console developers are better than multiplatform developers, and I don't really want to get into it much, but from my perspective as a life long gamer, the most fun I have ever had gaming was with SCEA published games.
Honestly, if I was forced to choose between a gaming PC or a PS4 and laptop, I would choose the PS4 and laptop. But that is only if I had a gun to my head and someone said that I had to pick one.
P.S. as for the playability of the games themselves, that is too subjective to make a case for or against. Some people can't play games with a keyboard and mouse, others can't play a game with a controller. It is too personal of a thing to say that 1 is better than the other.
