    True, but thats also double the amount of an xbox or ps3.

    Although 600 is a good deal for a gaming pc.

    I'm just saying around $200-$300 for a console + lets say $600 for a casual pc or just buy a $600 gaming PC.

    Mellow
    Are we talking about gaming or living?

    I sure as hell can't play fucking split-screen Black Ops on my PC, now can I?
    I have friends, and they're part of what sold me on the console side.
    If you're just gonna sit alone to play vidja, PC is fine, but not everyone wants to be alone when they're playing their games.
    Interaction is part of what makes people want to play games, and I find that while you'll get more communication on PC, there's a lot less actual interaction.

    It will most likely last as long as a console. The reason why people think that it wont is the fact that PC Graphics advance a lot faster than console graphics. My computer is 4 years old (slightly younger than a 360) and it is still keeping up with ease.

    :/ not to be just obvious, but you'd have to redo hardware at least once for that to happen.

    Or get a deal for 600(that normal people couldn't) at top of the line stuff at the time. Even then its VERY, i mean VERY iffy.

    Buy a pc today, in 6 months A new model will come out with 50% better shit.

    The only thing I've upgraded so far is the case (for looks) and hdd (for movies). Like I said before I can play Crysis 2 on Advanced at around 30-40fps. If I wanted to extend the life of my pc by a couple of years I'd just have to buy a cheap gfx card off ebay for 100 bucks and bam i've already extended the lifetime of my pc.

    It's all down to personal preference, I'd prefer an xbox but I'd also like the ps3 for the free online service, but I would get a wii for the nintendo games eg: mario kart, super smash etc.

    Each console has its pros and cons so none is better than the other.

    I actually own a ps3, the difference in gameplay is worse compared to 360 on any online game.

    But the single player games outrank xboxes because they have GoW and Uncharted.

    Well its probably to due with it being free. That means the game companies of each game have to pay out of their own money to support the online play. Which only meanst that after time it gets worse and worse.

    A good example would be killzone 3.

    Meanwhile xbox has xbox live and although you have to pay for it, its pretty cheap and it has party chat + a friend system, so their is a lot more reason to play it.

    yeah the party chat is cool
    but you have to pay Microsoft for online playing not the game makers
