Bringing 3 large computers around and putting them around 1 table seems stupid to me.
You still have to bring a tv? Unless you have 3 tvs side by side lol.. What about a Laptop? That's a PC too isn't it?

I think people are forgetting a PC needs a display and speakers aswell.

By the way you can use also use monitors with modern consoles via HDMI.

Console gaming doesn't have to be expensive. It's pretty funny that people think it does. Most people already own a TV, and can play a console right out of the box.

Also why would you throw in surround sound as a neccessity for console gaming and not for PC gaming? Stick to the neccessities and not the preferences.

The price will be made up very quickly.

Also, I'm not even considering used games because all used games do is screw the developers...and that's also the reason I'm not considering pirating PC games.

I don't buy used games and I don't pirate games, I give my money to the people who deserve it, the developers who made the games.
If a used game is cheaper, I'll buy it. Whether on PC or console. What's more important to me is the money that goes into my wallet, not the money that goes into someone elses.

Most people also own a laptop, desktop, or both.

I'm more of a PC gamer than consoles, but I still love to game on all systems. Gaming in general I do not discriminate in. No siree!

Also, you don't need to bring a TV to friends houses for LAN parties, split screen baby! And the majority of homes have more than one TV.

Which means you can play your console on those too seems you already have a display device. Equalling less cost if for some bizarre reason you don't own a TV.

You're talking preference not neccessity. In essence I could game on any platform with a set of cheap headphones.

When it comes to video games and media in general, nope. With a family to keep happy I'm not going to worry about whos pockets I line with my cash. I'll do what's best for me and those closest to me (as long as it's legal).

Yeah that is nice but I like wireless. I sit several feet away so cords don't reach and extensions annoy me lol

It should be like this. Because games run at their fullest potential on the PC. Nothing nerfed, the ability to choose servers, max graphics out, etc. So I always prefer PC to play.

Because pc has nVidia Surround = 3x fov 3x more immersive compared to crapsole.

You can do that with console as well
