Please base this off my reasons, don't just say what you have liked before and what you hate.
Xbox One vs PC.
Why I Like Xbox One:
Exclusives, especially Dead Rising 3 and NBA Live 14
Controller
That all games are designed for it
TV capabilities
Simple
Cheaper
Kinect

Why I like PC:
PC exclusives
Powerful and upgradable
Can also be a computer
Can get XB1 controller for it

Why I don't like Xbox:
Live
Everyone kinda hates it

Why I don't like PC:
Expensive
More complicated

Which do you think I should get and why and could you show me some links for a few desktops and laptops that can run any game smoothly.

IF you don't have money, time to learn... easy buy one xbox or playstation 4. IF you wanna do something, learn something build an PC. i prefer pay 1200 bucks on custom made pc than pay 400 bucks on a video game everyone has...

that topic is quite a troll bait. if you want to play xbone exclusives then its a no brainer. the pc has cheaper games due to steam/gog/gmg etc. sales so you'll be saving tons of cash. i don't consider graphics a determining factor, its a nice bonus for sure but it will never replace good o'l fashion gameplay. still playing civ 4 :D

On the long term (around 5 years, 50 games bought), PC actually becomes cheaper than consoles to run, thanks to generally cheaper games, free online and Steam sales. Even if you put $500 to upgrade the graphics card twice during those 5 years, its still cheaper.

PC isn't complicated once you start understanding how it works overall.

If you are going consoles anyway, I would recommend going for the PS4. You are guaranteed to have more and better exclusives and free games with PS Plus.

Foll based on the assumption that the PC is a medium-high end rig, modern GPU, etc..

PC
---
- Better graphics (BY A LOT)
- Controls are better (i guess its a matter of preference - but i've owned consoles my whole life, and I think mouse+keyboard is lightyears ahead of a controller, for example, BF3 on PS3, takes ages to do a 180 before the dude kills you, in PC its infinitely better. I just feel a lot more 'in control' on a PC game.
- More games, especially online ones, more simultaneous players online (MMO's, BF4, etc..) For example, you cant play MOBA's or RTS or most MMORPG's on a console.
- Upgradeability
- Customization
- Mutli-function (downloading, music, photo editing, video editing, internet surfing, storage, work, remote desktop, etc..
- Steam deals, origin, etc...
- If a part breaks etc.. replace it under warranty in a jiffy, or simply upgrade it.

Xbox One
--
- Pricey titles
- Pay for xbox live
- Its only a matter of time before they implement FULLY micro-transaction models on all games
- If it breaks, dont know how it is in your country, but here in Greece you give it back, wait ages for them to try to fix it, if they do, you dont know how long it'll last (like xbox 360 had heating issues) and if they dont, you have to wait for a replacement.

Last but not least, another super plus for PC, you can play OLD SCHOOL games! :D  Emulators, etc.. :)

Here are some things to consider:

1. What kind of games do you enjoy most? If you are into FPS's, strategy or MobA's, the PC is a much better choice. It also means you don't have much use for a gamepad. Consoles can do FPS too, but people who use both know that proper FPS is done with a mouse.

If you are into sports, racing or fighting, specially with local multiplayer, the console is the way to go. If this is the case, you will need a gamepad or two if you buy a PC, but then again, it is better to just go with a console.

2. Do you have your friends coming over? A console is great for having friends around. Both can do online gaming, but the PC is kind of awkward when you have frineds over.

3. Consoles tend to have more AAA exclusives, though the PC has its own exclusives due to platform limitations (think DotA on a console).

4. It is true that the PC is upgradeable, but that tends to be overvalued. Most people don't upgrade until their PC is so aged they have to start from scrap. In the end, a console is bound to outlast a PC. PS3's and X360's are still selling, while people with a PC built around the time they were released can't do much with it now.

5. As for the TV capabilities, it is something that doesn't look so appealing. It is nice to have a simple interface, but it won't enable you to do anything you weren't able to do before. Also, you can always get your PC connected to a TV and use XBMC, which in my humble opinion blows everything away.

So, in the end, it comes down to what you wanna do with it. Are you the guy that games on a big TV and a couch, invites friends now and then to curse over who is best at FIFA and Injustice? Or are you the guy who sits on a desk with a headset, shooting people's heads, commanding armies and making enemies around the globe?

PS: As mentioned before, the general hatred against the X1 is because of Microsoft's greedy angenda gone wrong. The PS4 is also a better offer, I'd seriously consider it.

this is the first time i've seen someone with a very reasonable and unbiased list of pros and cons when it comes to consoles vs pc. i was getting tired of the same old same old graphics/upgrade-ability for the sake of maxing out settings and sliders bull****.
This is how its done people. choosing a gaming platform in a nutshell :D

it comes down to what titles you want to play and if you are going to play with your friends.
