Pro PC Scene vs Pro Console Scene

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Which "scene" so to say, do you guys think is larger/more intense. I know PC gaming has the CAL, CGL, etc, and focuses mainly on games like CS 1.6, SC, WC3, Q3, etc. Console pro gaming features mainly the Halos, sometimes something like a racing game or fighting game like SSB or DOTA. In my opinion , I believe the PC scene is much more competitive, with the difference in kill between pro pc gamers and normal pc gamers being much larger than the difference in skill between pro console gamers and normal console gamers. Consoles were designed for casual gaming that is easy to pick up. PCs are more geared toward enthusiasts and competitiveness. What do you guys think? Which pro gaming scene is more intense?

Halo is the biggest section of the console (I.E MLG).

But I think PC is more competitive (over more games).

it really depends how you look at it, and how console specific.

PC gamers arent necessarily competitive, there are TONS of awesome single player games for PC. most games for PC focus more on single player and only have multiplayer to make money; however, there are some games that are primarily multiplayer.

PC has easier ways to make competition work though. IE the internet, teamspeak/vent/xfire, etc. whereas console is stuck to things like xboxlive.


its really hard to say, personally i would imagine PC gaming would win that one, but that comes from a guy who bailed out on console gaming after the ps2.

PC is sooo much better. When a new game comes out, all you have to do is a have a decent Vid card, and your set.

When Consoles upgrade, you have to buy a whole new system! You save money if you go PC!

Pluss the graphics, and control and interactivity are 10xs better on PC

Oh, and you get more features on the PC. Instead of pulling data off a disc with soo much info on them, you install the game on your PC and get everything!

PC FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pro PC scene is way larger. You put all the prize money for PC tournaments up against prize money for console tournaments and I'm thinking the PC tournaments prize money would win by a good margin. Plus just the fact that organizing PC leagues and stuff is way easier.

Consoles are for frat boys and casual gamers.

PCs are for nerds and naked fat guys in chat rooms.

IMO PC's can lead to a big (appendage) contest, where consoles everyone is on a level playing field as far as hardware is concerned. In my experiences, PC gamers are usually more serious about their multiplay, due to the increased cost of a rig as opposed to the hundreds of younger kids who's parents buy them the games.

I've had many intense games on PS3 only to have the next map be flooded by 13yo's with mic's spamming crap over them. The same holds true for PC's, but the admins can take care of that.

As stated above, there is more money to be had in pro PC gaming, and also Pro PC gaming has spawned celebs like fatal1ty.

Evidently you didn't play much Halo 2 when the OGRE brothers were dominating the scene.
