LOL.....consoles never crash....I got 3 360's you can watch crash anytime...just come over.....low frame rates? yeah...that happens with cod4 on 360 more like a lag spike but I can say it plays BETTER on pc (just have to deal with all the hax on pc)

If you want 4 people to play a PC game you need 4 computers and a switch - and the cheapest brand-name computer that has a hope of playing games (you know, for the people not on this site ) is gonna run them about $1000. And on top of that, they will most likely need a technician to come over to their house and setup their network because they have no idea how. But some games still won't work because that technician didn't think that they'd need the IPX protocol installed.
Lan party FTW!

You had to upgrade the N64 for Perfect Dark, Donkey Kong 64, etc. Also, had to upgrade Gamecubes for Online, had to upgrade PS2s for online, had to buy add on drives for the 360 to use HD movies, etc.

Lots of games have lag issues on consoles. Perfect Dark again comes to mind, Goldeneye, some sports games. Also, just about any EA game has lag issues in places.

Never crashes? I am trying not to lol. The failure rate of 360s was very high, especially early in its life. I have had my original XBox, and my PS2, freeze in game, requiring resets and loss of progress.

The fact that it has drivers and an OS pre-installed is definitely nice, though, and the price point can't be argued.

He's definatly right about the technical side of things though. I do agree, I was that section of the population once and 'PC gaming' just seemed like some kind of 'unofficial' way of playing games. As well as being a lot more difficult to set up, havign to install etc and then set your graphics settings. Peace of cake to us lol, but not to many. It was only once i started to realise that PC's could play games a lot better than the consoles and I started to get an interest in them (my dad finally got me one!), that I never went back to consoles.
