I agree with Jacko. When some people have the advantage over others then they can ruin it for others. Consoles are good because everyone has the same specs.

Atleast with a console you dont have to look at the back of the case to make sure it will run lol.

Pc's have superior graphics, the games are a lot better, and you don't have to use autoaim in shooters (lmao). I would much rather invest money in one good pc then in one bad pc and a ps3. A pc also has upgrade possibilities . With a console you could be stuck with the same hardware for years. Don't mean to start a flame war or anything but these are just my opinions. But I am lookin forward to putting linux and folding on it
PC's graphics improve as long as you keep buying videocards to play the games with. A benefit with consoles is developers know exactly what hardware you're using so they can continuously research and improve code to make the most out of the hardware and improve graphics without the need to spend hundreds on graphics cards and processors.

Until pc gaming becomes as easy as just putting in a dvd and playing, it will never be as popular as console gaming. Therefore, most developers will continue to focus more developing games on consoles.

So? It's an expensive hobby and we all know it.

PC is like visiting a bomb factory, if you see the technician run, try to catch up.

ps3 has 7 cpus @ 3.2ghz and room for 1 more... lol pointless its got blue ray... a high end graphics card... but it tbh theres not much point in tht wen u can get a comp that has all the perfomence u need and other functions for around the same price. the only difference is the blue ray. most people dont have HD compatible TVs so tht also can be pointless. tbh for what ur paying ps3 is a great deal in terms of consoles but id still rather get a PC for the stuff you can do with it.

so are you saying I don't know anything about my computer? the computer in my sig, that I have built and overclocked?

don't generalize.


There are pros and cons for console and PC


One is not better than the other, they are just different.

example:
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.

Actually it is The PC will eventually conquer. Once it becomes easier to use a controller with your PC and game makers put their games out for the PC also it's over.

But i have a 360 anyways just for halo 2 / 3 because halo for the PC still sucks.
