I was making the same point as this article down in the gaming forums a week or two ago, actually. Nobody liked to hear it then, apparently no one likes to hear it now.



Yes, PCs are upgradable...but if you're honest about it, the PC gamers who actively do that sort of thing spend a fair amount of money on their hobby. Cripes, a mid-range video card costs as much as a Wii; and a high-end video card, the one you probably want to upgrade to if you're serious about this, is as much as a PS3. And let's not forget about the inevitable march of recommended RAM, it seems like we need to add another gig or two every two years.

So again, this was a point I was making somewhere else a week or two ago: the argument that you have to replace a console every five years, and that PCs are better because you can upgrade them instead, is a complete straw man. Most "real" PC gamers replace the main components of their PC every few years, probably at a more rapid pace and at greater expense than pure console gamers.

I disagree the expense of replacing a video card is more then an old console.
Unless you run out and buy a top of the line vid card for $500 or something crazy..

I just got a X1900GT which runs BF2 & BF2142 at high settings great for $114.

Orig. XBOX and PS2 sold for what? $299? $399?

360 and PS3 how much now?

Ram is cheap now. ~$100

CPU? probably another ~$100

Mobo $100-200

What else could you need to possibly replace? Most people wouldn't need to replace everything either so I think the total cost is probably much less.

I hate all the console 'accesories' too. Memory cards, controllers, Cables, dvd remotes (remember not being able to play dvds on my orig. xbox w/o it )

I think the pc parts seem more useful even dated too. New consoles are backwards compatible so that old system isn't good for anything and not worth much to sell for since people don't generally want old consoles much.
An old computer is more useful then a old console IMO.


OK, off of console -vs- pc now.

I just read the article in the news section reviewing the Dx10 in Lost Planet and there's barely any noticable benefit. Some textures at very high setting look better and the shadows are a little better looking. That's really about it. Disappointing.

Exactly.

PC >consoles
Pc games always look better and have more depth to them because of the people who play computer games... Online is free, and have mods you can install to make the games even better without the risk of being banned from XLive

Consoles = FPS,Racing,RPGs,crappy sim ports
PC=FPS,Racing,RPG,MMO,MMORPG,RTS,Simulation, and emulators

Yeah consoles have the Xbox live.. but i'd rather not pay for my internet AND $50 for Xbox live.. yeah you have friends you can join but thats why we have x-Fire.. and xfire was before live..

I just think Consoles are stupid.. and in the long run you would probably spend less money on a decent computer and games than the console, controllers, headset, more controllers if the other ones break, probably more than two copies of most of your games due to scratches, and shipping costs when the mobo warps or dust collects on the disk drive laser since it voids your warranty when you open it..

i believe consoles are good if you have friends over and wanna play games together.if your alone playing then pc takes the win for sure
post #56 of 72
I have consoles and a pretty nice gaming rig, and some console games just look like dirt when they are ported over. Halo 2 looks like a$$ on the pc, halo looked a lot better. I seen fear for the consoles and it doesn't look all that great. But one thing I will say for the consoles, they never really understand what they have untill they are ready to push the new console. Thats when they realize. well hell that last console can run this game also. but multiplayer games are funner over the internet, because you don't have people looking at your part of the screen trying to cheat. I personally don't think console games touch the pc's games, PC games tend to be so much better graphic wise.
