I guess if you're happy with the titles you have to chose from. I can see your point. I prefer to game on my 52" screen and have one device solely (or two, maybe) for that purpose. My mac is for what I'm doing now. Oh yeah, and paying bills.

Because the PC "Master Race" has a tiny **bleep** and I don't want to be associated with them.

LOL...Did you survey that yourself? Sorry, had to break balls. And no I'm not part of that "Master Race". Dam, I can't even remember the last time I played a game on a pc/mac...maybe chess last year.

As others mentioned, the upkeep is expensive. I do not like digital games, I like physical copies so you can not woo me with the Steam sales. Emulators are usually very choppy and just not worth it. I may be a stupid gamer for saying this but a lot of PC games are just too involved for my taste, i prefer a much more relaxed experience. Also a gaming PC wouldnt fit in my entertainment center, so there is that.

 

I like The Sims though. That is about it.

Because, with consoles, you KNOW the game will work. 

 

However, with PC you constantly have to keep upgrading parts to play newer games. 

 

PC is a bad deal. In the end for a PC, after around 5 years, you probably invested at least $3000 in it.

I prefer consoles because they are more easy and simple to use, and most of the franchises I like are only on consoles. However, I do like the when you buy games on PC they always transfer to your new PC, in other words, I love the backwards compatibility that PC has. I wish backwards compatibility for consoles were easier. But I still prefer consoles.

   I can play 2 games, browse forums, video chat, voice chat, watch TV, youtube, share games ALL AT THE SAME TIME AND I COULD DO THIS 10 YEARS AGO!!!!

As well as .....Get single player games FREE, use a controller, use a stick, have better graphics and  play 64 players.

   You guys are wasting 400$ and 500$ for 600 you could do all of the above when the next set of console comes out upgrade ur video card and BAM new PC that still does more than the next gen console.

I just don't understand...................................................................................................................................................................................................
