    Get both, personally I gave away my consoles and just built a monster machine just over 3 years ago. I havent had to buy a new graphics card or nothing yet dont plan on any upgrades for at least 2 years. Plays GTA in all its glory and runs smooth I run football manager with a huge amount of leagues running and it plays nice.
    Probaly one of the best investments I have ever made in my life. I used Dino Pc to build it (very cheap parts) and done my research for best things to use buy etc by reading forums for PC gamers and youtube videos on hardware.
    I do miss my Marvel vs Capcom and WWE games (but saying that WWE 2k15 was just released on PC and I can play a whole host of Capcom Games on the emmulators I have on this computer) I plan on having my computer for 10 years before I will reinvest for all the things I use it for defintely a worth while investment I spent 1300 on it.

    PC in the long run is cheaper and you have a lot more versatility in the games and is a hell of a lot cheaper to buy games with steam sales. You will never have the problem of backwards compatibility either but there's nothing better than kicking back with the simplicity of a console IMO.

    Yes PC's can have more raw power in terms of AA, fps etc but because the hardware is so varied (ram, graphics cards etc), developers are never able to optimise to get the most out of PC hardware. Because a console has all the same specs, devs can tweak the engines etc to get more power from consoles.

    Look at a PS3 launch game and look at The Last of Us... they look like two different generations because developers are able to get the most out of consoles through optimisation with 2004 tech. Even in 2007 next to no PC's could even run Crysis let alone run it on Max.

    This was a PS4 launch game and still looks better than most PC games even now even if the game was shit lol

    I'll stream it on twitch if you like. Graphically is amazing. The game its self, not so much.

    That ship drops you off, walk through the scanner and that big glass building explodes. It's not pre-rendered or anything. You can move you head about and shit.

    super late to this thread. don't have a pc or a console but can shut this down nowadays cus hardware so cheap. basically pc's cheaper and better performance than consoles across the board now, but get a console if you want the console exclusive games or you wanna play with your mates that got the same one.

    manufacturers gonna long it out as much as they can for the $$ but tech/cost wise consoles are behind now no way to catch up.
    Sobriety will fuck you straight up

    I still prodominantly use my Xbox for gaming as it's where my mates play...

    Bought a PC for gaming going on a year and a bit ago now, wasn't cheap by any stretch but mix of having a decent wage, no sense of value and lack of responsibilities that generally come with being in your 20's meant I could get away with it.

    Would probably say even though I laid out tonnes more than I did on the consoles, you probably save around 30 per game if you use websites like cdkeys.

    Games like Gmod / CS2 are THE reason to have a PC for gaming, I love all the different mods you can install for various games, gives old games a new leash and prolongs thier lifespan hugely, rather than relying on an annual cycle to liven things up (IE COD, I've got WAW, BO1&2 installed and id say they look better graphics wise than the newer ones now theyve been modded). Fallout 3 mods are especially fun.

    Backwards compatibility isn't an issue either... I still play worms armageddon, commander keen, and crystal caves, all purchased from steam at one point or another, two of those are Apogie DOS games! so you're talking in excess of 20 years old!

    I reckon if i had to choose which was more cost effective, even with a high end PC costing over a grand I reckon over 5 years it's still more cost effective than a console, when you take into account games are SO much cheaper, no Xbox live / PSN fee, doubles up as a work PC if needs be etc etc.


    Then theres the quality... bigger game library, extra features, customised multiplayer playlists that you physically can't get on a console.

    If all my friends had a gaming PC set up, I probably wouldn't have the consoles, but IMO it's who you play with most of the time not what you're playing.

    I'd go for both

    PS4/XBOX simply for exclusives (if you get an xbox, you can use the controller with your PC using a micro USB cable without the need for extra tools to setup)

    PC for the benefits as above posts

    For a future proof PC, budget for 1500 imo

    Mines around the same budget and around 3 years old and plays every game I've tried on highest settings on 1080p resolution

    • Intel 4770k (havent overclocked yet though)
    • Noctua DH14 cooler
    • GTX 980TI (recent upgrade from 770 SLI)
    • 500GB SDD (got for cheap at work)
    • 2 x 2TB HDD's for storage
    • MSI Z97 Mobo
    • 16GB Corsair Vengance DDR3 RAM
    • Coolermaster HAF 912 Case (not the most spectacular case but is very roomy)


    Plus with Windows 10, you can stream Xbox One games to your PC!

    In regards to using a TV as a monitor.. should be fine for gaming, however day-to-day stuff such as web browsing will seriously strain your eyes, even from a distance as text can get blurry. Better off getting a normal 22/24" monitor for day-to-day stuff and having the TV as a second screen for gaming.

    The only grievance I've ever had with PC is how many times I've had to upgrade them throughout the years, I started custom building my own in 2003 and while I tried to keep it as futureproof as possible by making sure I picked motherboards that could support more RAM (Two pairs>>>), a secondary PCI-E slot and a socket that Intel/AMD will still be releasing CPUS for it's always the case that technology is advancing at a very quick pace and games are becoming more resource intensive not just for the GPU/CPU but even hard drive space too.

    80gb for a game install<<<<<<<<<<<<

    cringing at the CS lingo being dropped in here. played in CSGN division 1 & 2 for years when I was younger, haven't played properly in about 8 years now. would decimate any complete mongol who has posted in this thread, in my day of course.

    You use all that to run games at 1080p? You're doing yourself a disservice mate, you should be using either a 1440p 144hz G-Sync monitor or a 4k monitor.

    If your on a budget get an r9 280 graphics card with atleast an i3 or that unlocked haswel dual core and aio cooler if you know what you're doing. This will run all games 1080 and older ones in 4k.

    PCs>>>>>
    g2a & instant-gaming are cheap even for new releases (they make steam sales look expensive).

    Consoles are the reason games are being held back. What's in the xbox? Some laptop cpu with a modified ati 7770 hd? I brought that card at around 70-80 in 2012 what's it doing in an Xbox one?

    We are near hitting the silicone limit in hardware so if you get a pc now days it will outlast a console for a generation or two.

    I got a r9 290 with a 4690k at 4.5 on an air cooler if there is any other sly neeks in here (Dw I know you all are really)

    Think the memory problem was blown out of proportion, unless you're gaming on 3x screens at the same time or using 4K there ain't much difference, 3.5GB is more than enough. At least it put down the price though, copped one for 240 runs everything on max 60FPS.
