so are you saying I don't know anything about my computer? the computer in my sig, that I have built and overclocked?
There are pros and cons for console and PC
One is not better than the other, they are just different.
I only like to play my fps and rts games on a PC.
I would never play my racing or sports games on anything but a console.
Besides you will find out that developers are loving consoles more than PC's for several reasons.
The main reasons are probably developing and piracy
On a PC the game developers have to make the game work with every single hardware component that has come out.
With a console they are developing for a system that is the same for everyone who uses that console, Xbox360, ps3, or wii.
Also piracy is a big problem, especially for games, and even more commonly on PC games.
It is easy for someone to download an .iso then use a no cd key and BAM they just stole the game and have it for free.
On the console side that person has to order a mod chip, then depending on the mod chip either solder on to the motherboard, some don't have this I know. But either way they have to open their console and I don't know anyone who has done this. Then they have to download the game and burn it. And they won't be able to play XBOX live because of the mod chip...
see the difference?
of course on consoles you can't use the internet(easily), type documents, use im programs, etc etc.
One is not better than the other and certainly don't say that console gamers don't know anything about their computers.
