    The graphics are far superior in a PC compared to a console, also the price is relatively different also, PC games are cheaper than most console version of the games. You can also get a more decent frame rate on a PC since its more powerful than a console, also the lifespan differential. A high end PC can outlast 3 generations of home consoles.

    LOL not if you want to play games on ultra or very high settings it won't. Probably 2 years max if you are lucky.

    You can always upgrade various bits like the CPU and GPU but for me it's ease of use every time.

    I used to do all my gaming on my Amiga and then PC which was state of the art way back in 1996 but after getting the original Playstation decided that it was good enough for me.

    You can get *ahem* free games on the PC though!

    Well on good maintenance. I had mine for almost 5 years now and all I had to do is upgrade my GPU and replace the fans. Well, games are plenty if you know how to scour the seven seas. *wink*

    The graphics on a PC are by far superior to those of a next gen console, everybody knows that. The quality of games are usually better as well. Occasionally, you will see a game that was ported from a console that has been poorly optimized and plays like crap.

    Well for me PC is better its advantages are examples Graphics, Smoothness and it also has Mods but the disadvantage is you will need a lot of money to afford a computer that can run smoothly as what you desire, Consoles are also good and way cheaper so if you'll ask me i'll go with the Console because I can't afford that expensive stuffs.

    The graphic quality is infinite times better than console on a PC. I am not sure if that's what you are asking when comparing the two, but that is the first thing that comes to mind. The fact that you can have mods for just about any game is a big plus for me as well.

    I find that console games contain more quality, even though PC games have better graphics. Take Black Ops for example. It is pretty much a mess on PC, same with Ghosts. However on console, they are fine.

    That's just lazy crappy developers that don't give a crap about the PC port. Sadly, console versions take priority and the PC ports suffer for it...

    Its a lot better to game on the PC, as far as graphics go. But I prefer a console, that just me. Never got too much into gaming on the PC. I have friends that do it all the time, just never interested me much.

    Though I agree with some of your points (the graphics are generally superior, guess it would be easier to develop for PC and the framerate thing is true with a good GPU), I have to call BS on your 3 generations thing. 3 generations ago it was the PS2/GC/Xbox era circa 2000/2001. I dunno about you but my PC from that time has taken its last dump long ago. Plus I don't think that 1ghz Pentium 3 processor and the 64mb video card can hold up to playing today's games

    HAHA! That was just an exaggeration really. What I really meant to say there is that PC's that are good enough can last longer than consoles. But of course that's saying it with a couple of upgrades.

    Eh, the graphics might be better - but the support might also be nonexistent. Computers are not one-size-fits-all the way that consoles generally are. So things don't always work, and you might need to hit up the internet to fix that. Console is pay-plug-play something like 98% of th time. On top of that if it isn't working you get a patch to download and keep it moving. The range and number of games is generally larger - graphic aren't that important - and I don't have to upgrade the hardware on my console... the software comes with the game. So yeah - I prefer console overall... also there isn't any horror for the PC and I live off horror.

    PC's will always reign supreme. It's as simple as that. Sure people will say that they cost much more, but honestly you can buy a decent to high range computer for the same price as a console at launch.

    On a powerful PC you have incredible graphical fidelity that console can't compare to. Otherwise really no difference..

    You know, when people talk about PC pricing the forget two things:

    1) A high-end PC will most likely outlive a console generation. I'm certain that people that got high-end PCs during the last generation are still able to play some of the newer games being released for the new console generation.

    2) Games themselves are much cheaper on PC, since there's a lot more frequent and deeper discounts. Games even go on discount for pre-orders. For example, I got Dark Souls 2 for $40 as a pre-order while the console version was still at retail for $60 and I believe others pre-ordered Watch_Dogs for cheaper than console too. Then there's things like the Steam Summer Sale in which people can grab relatively older games for fantastic prices (and even games that aren't as old, Murdered: Soul Suspect was at 50% off, for example). The closest that consoles get is used games and reselling.

    When you consider this, I think that PC gaming might actually end up being cheaper in the long run.

    Honestly, I would have to agree with you. Sure, you might spend twice as much on a PC as you would on a console, but that's if you're going for the real high end model. And honestly, you're probably spending a little too much by that point.

    However with things like the Steam sales, you can stock up on games every few months or so, and just never buy a full priced game if you're willing to wait that length of time.

    I don't see much difference. I think building your own rig is a better option though. The problem with consoles is that they become outdated very fast, but if you have a pc, you can always upgrade the graphics card, processor, ram memory and motherboard and keep on playing the latest games. My consoles are always gifts, but for pc playing, i always bulid my own rig.

    Like what the others have said, PC gets the advantage when it comes to customization. You can easily get the latest specs and run the newest games with no problems at all. This is my main reason why I prefer gaming on my PC. That said, I have a pretty nice setup. A lot of people find consoles much more relaxing. That's a new discussion though.
