gaming console or pc?

5 posts in this topic

Gamers- Which do you prefer to play a console or pc? I have always though sports games played best on consoles, but when it comes to a real time strategy game or first person shooting game, nothing beats a high end pc.

The only issue I have with pc gaming is man you always need to upgrade your computer every few years to keep up with the latest stuff.

I am asking because Fallout 3 is out and I either need to buy a new console or upgrade my pc.

personally, I prefer the consoles. Upgrading your PC takes alot more $$ in my opinion.

For normal internet use, I can get by with the same PC for years before needing to upgrade

Well, PC's are going to have the best graphics and speed but to keep them up to date is costly. I don't do much stratagy playing, but the guys I know that do say you can't beet a PC. I still like the game consoles on my 42" TV.

$900 has you a machine good for 3-4 years, so it isn't that expensive. It's all preference though. RTS PC is the way to go, it really can't be pulled off with a console. Other games are done pretty well on consoles. I have both, and each has it's strengths and weaknesses. Generally gaming on a PC requires a higher level of skill to be enjoyable than a console.

A 360 is $300, a Q6600 an 88000GT plus MoBo and the works will run you $700, really it's your call. If you go the PC route I recommend learning enough about it to make it a full entertainment platform, otherwise you'll never realize the true value of a good PC.
