The Ogre brothers? Those other guys with their names and likenesses plastered on every peripheral imaginable? Oh, those guys.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i have to disagree. spending $300-$400 every 4 years for a new console = less then $100 per year. with pcs, its a new $200 video card EVERY year, plus mobo, cpu, ram, and hdd upgrades once in a while (atleast every other year) while i agree that pc gaming is superior, i disagree that it is cheaper, it is much more expensive. to build a decent pc with a video card capable of maxing every game with a OS and keyboard/mouse for under $400 would be impossible, since the OS and video card alone make up most of that cost. abd the hdd space needed for the games is enormous, unlike consoles, my 320gb probably half filled with games, but my 60GB ps3, which i have just as many games for, still has alot of space. console gaming is much more convenient, but if you have $$ to burn, pc gaming is the way to go.

That's not true at all, you can build a gaming pc that will beat a XBOX360 for about $500 and it can last you a good 6 years without upgrading. There are plenty of people that will build a pc and wont upgrade it at all yet those pcs are still capable of running all of the games out there (just at lower settings). The only reason why most people do upgrade is because us pc users have the option to upgrade while console users are stuck with the same hardware. I mean, just take a look at $till LegendaryU2K's rig. He's running a 11 year old gaming rig yet he can still play the most competitive and popular fps's and RTS's out there.
