Each has its benefits, depending on what you want to get from your experience, a gamer is a gamer not matter what the platform
My question is, why is all that needed? I can play the Dark Mod with Intel Integrated Graphics just fine, and it looks really amazing. In fact, it looks better than many of the newest released games. So what's going on? Are they programming badly? I have noticed the number of bugs, glitches, and bad game-play increase over the years in newly-released games.
I've personally given up on Microsoft consoles (and PCs) because they are so crappy in terms of reliability. Take a look at the "Blue Ring of death" on YouTube, and it has happened on 2 of the 360 consoles I bought. The original XBox has also completely corrupted the saves numerous times at random. I prefer PS3 and further, although I hate that they made them less powerful than the first PS3 version, and the fact that they locked out the other cores. The biggest problem though, is games, good games. Good luck finding them.
Depends on the view, I bought this amazing rig for game developing and FPS's, GTA, and anything else I find amusing. I buy consoles for racing games. There's nothing on PC that I would compare to Gran Turismo and Forza. Project CARS is a good start of PC gaming coming back but it's still not GT or Forza. It will be even better after they start adding, a lot of cars, I mean like, a lot of lot of cars.

Nothing more to say really.
I think this needs a poll attaching to it PC for me, for the most part. I do occasionally play on the 360, but it rare.
I changed the options slightly for those who are less biased!
Definitely PC I would say. PC games are also on the cheap or on a deal somewhere. (or in a giveaway ) That alone would sway me to be honest. Console games are stupid costly.
Sorry its got to be both. Yes PC is better if you have a great PC.
I use the xbox one because i like it too.
PC all day long, although I do have a Wii U just because Nintendo really do bring out games you cant get anywhere else
PC, because games are... cheaper... hehe
I love Nintendo consoles since I was brought up playing games like Zelda and GoldenEye, and some games are made better by the use of a gamepad, but I do think that PC has so much more potential and a massively larger variety of games than any console.
PC for me. I always miss it when I'm playing on a console. I love the freedom of being able to program my own control settings on PC. I like the option to play with mods, but its very high on my priorities that I have the ability to fix bugs via commands on games like Oblivion.
Well, PC for sure especially with steam link and controllers being released in October got to haves
I use my pc every single day... it has every individual piece in it that I researched and then assembled and that part on its own for me was a pleasure and worth the investment.By this I mean if i divide the cost by the amount I use it then it is more economic than other things I would do instead.
The graphics are better than a console if you invest in what you enjoy.
Go to the steam website during the next couple of weeks and wait for the sale. You will then see just how cheap the games can be compared to consoles and watch the humble bundle site for good deals on games too.
Consoles do win on the used games trade in market, and if you have no interest in building a computer, they are great if you just want to plug in and play.
Its strange that an always on connection will be required on the xbox .Will they charge a subscription?Is that not just for multiplayer games? however gaming with friends with your headset on is massive fun, and on a pc , even on free games like Warface.
You will have a major disadvantage with your internet connection Toby at 150kbs.You are very rural. Are there no other broadband options in your area ? Have you been to speed test dot net and checked your speeds?
Xbox controller is better for driving simulators or flying helicopters but as a man with a gun the keyboard and mouse is the winner for me. The analogue controller gives you progressive throttle,braking and steering so smoother than constant dabs on the keyboard.
My controller is wired but it just goes in a usb port and the pc does the rest. For wireless you will need a receiver and this video says there are cheaper versions available.
My first console was an Atari and it played breakout and pong. I did have a sega megadrive with a little blue hedgehog, then a ps1 and then a ps2 but at that point I was interested in PC's and not looked back.I did try an xbox 360 but the sound of the disc drive was annoying....... and fond memories of Jet pac or manic miner kept making me think about computers.
Try entering competitions online , check the forum here at Eteknix as you could be lucky. I recently won the latest format of hard drive that I now boot my pc from. A friend is well on his way with a server build from parts he has won or discarded parts from friends after upgrades.
If you have friends with PCs, somebody is always upgrading and there should be some well tried and tested working bits that may be what you need and at a good price.
If you look at my avatar you can see a map on a driving game called Trackmania 2 valley which I made and shared on steam as a free level for other players. This and other levels for this game and shootmania were relatively quick and easy to create on a pc and added another dimension for fun for me.
The steam box will be launching soon but your internet may hold you back again.click on the blue writing for a quick look.
I hope you find a solution that works well for you soon.
Anything you are comfortable in, as you get almost all the games compatible with any system.
CONSOLE AND MOBILE! The only thing that is really best for my gaming needs to be honest. I can play console at home and play last of us or beyond two souls. Or if I need to go out, I'll just play walking dead, honeyday blitz 2, and blood brothers on my tablet.
I love PC gaming may be I have been using only that for this past 8 years
Love PC gaming.
