    Opinion on gaming. (PS3, PC, 360)

    I was thinking about buying a gaming computer but then I remembered the reason I bought a console. I am starting to think gaming computers are becoming overrated. The reason I think that is because

    A) Population - The majority of gamers are on either the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 console. Black Ops for example has about 10k people online last time I checked for PC. On PS3 it had nearly 600k.

    B) Hacking. A rising issue in computer gaming is hacking. Simply put, this is the main reason I decided to make this thread. Why spend up to $2000 dollars on a professional gaming rig for "ultimate gaming experience" when hackers can ruin this for you regardless of how much money they spent on theirs. This will put you on a disadvantage easily.

    C) Price - A gaming computer costs alot more than a console. A console is about $300 and latest games are no more than $60 usually. So let's say we bought 10 games for $400 that would make a total cost of $700 - the average price of a low standard gaming computer whereas we can get 10 games and a console + a HDMI for an extra $1.90

    D) Graphics - Computers have easily better graphics. For this I think this is why they are still favoured. However I would rather play on a big 50" TV than on a computer screen.

    Also, let's not forget the playstation 3 can do nearly everything an computer can (includes downloading, internet access, watching movies etc)

    What do you guys think?

    if you can afford to keep up, PC Gaming
    Xbox and ps3 uns every on the equivilent of mid-low graphics
    If you can spend at least 1500 on a pc and you will be sweet
    Also a 24" screen for your pc isn't small
    It costs more but i think it's worth it if you can afford it

    This isn't console war. If you really think about it PC is useless for gaming. On a big TV graphics aren't really that noticable and I can afford a good gaming rig but then again why spend so much when a console is better at gaming on nearly every aspect.

    You can build a beast gaming rig around $600-800.
    And you can use a HDMI cable for a 50" TV for computer.
    You can buy PC games very cheap on Steam or CD key websites.
    There are barely hackers on paid games.
    Computers multitask better.

    Remember when PSN was down?
    K, stfu.

    Actually, no. A $600-800 gaming rig would barely last. Your forgetting liquid cooling systems which requires a certain case (since most people plan on buying cheap cases). And you can't build a beast gaming rig without RAM. The best you can get with that is probably a good processor and graphics card and a small monitor. PC Games are practically the same price for consoles/PC btw. and pc games are full of hackers (black ops, mw2, etc you get the drill?). And I'm talking about gaming not multitasking because any computer can multi task.
    l2think plz

    Why would you need liquid cooling for a gaming rig?
    It's not enthusiast.

    I lol'd.
    You CAN get a beast rig for $700.
    PC games ARE cheaper. I mean, you could get a legit russian key for black ops for $14 whether its $80 on xbox.
    There ARE almost no hackers on paid pc games, and if there is, theyll get banned soon enough.
