PC Advantages = Better graphics, can do more than just game on it (everything from watching movies, internet browsing, shopping, etc, etc) Highly customizable, you get to watch streaming porn. Games are cheaper because of Steam and the likes.

PC Disadvantages = A bit more expensive than a console.

Console advantages = Cheaper than a PC

Console disadvantages = More expensive games, can't upgrade unless buying a new system every 10 years or so, very limited to what you can do on them, online gaming costs you.

Hi
There are actualy none sutcha benefits :) 
+1 vote for the console
+ they have the same High End GPU as PC
+ the HUGE Advantage is MISSING WINDOWS OS (sorry for that ...)
+ it`s optimised for 1 purpose - GAMING not all you can do with PC ...... ( no plug&play device support for +1000 devices .....
+ i see that manny GAME DEVELOPERS are more focused on Consoles Market - some games are NOT released on console at all ...... maybe because of safety reasons on PC`s - they are verry easy to crack the games there and the DEV`s are preffering the Console to make better profit ......
+ and the price - if you throw some $ to make equal performance on PC & Console you will probably spend 2x $ Console = PC to have the same performance ......
The OS is allays have beeing drawback of the PC Game Performance ...... for my 15 Years exp that`s my observation !

Heh.

MS and Sony are wanting the current generation to last 10 years, I think they are living in a dream world. The 360 and PS3 lasted so long because they were comparable to a very high end PC of the time, both companies made huge losses on the sales of the consoles expecting to make their return on the sale of games, accessories and such. Plus, they were both hard to make games for, the PS3 was intentionally hard to code for, Sony hoped that game devs would spend so much time making the games work on the PS3 that they wouldn't be able to release the game on other platforms, obviously this didn't happen, which is why 9 times out of 10 the Xbox games looked and ran better.

This time around the consoles are just PC's, theres nothing for game devs to learn, its x86 which has been around since the dawn of time. Theres no way its going to last, its made worse by the fact it isn't even powerful hardware. The proof is the fact that there are a tonne of launch titles not even running at native 1080p, in 2013 thats a total joke.

Personally I think buying a console right now is a stupid decision, especially given the price. While a good PC might cost a bit more to get together than a PS4 or Xbone, in the long run its going to work out way cheaper because PC games are generally less expensive, and there are no subscription fees. Plus, its inarguable that the PC experience is infinitely better than console gaming.

PC
1. highly customizable
2. Best graphics way better than consoles
3. Better control with keyboard and mouse compared to controllers

4. Expensive
5. After 2-3 years u have to upgrade some parts (mostly gpu) to keep up with new games
6. Some exclusives like halo, gears of war not available

Consoles
1. Cheaper
2. No need to worry about hardware upgrades
3. No need to tweak settings for optimal performance as games are already optimized
4. Some great exclusives

5. Low quality graphics compared to pc
6. Expensive games
7. Pay for multiplayer

Alow me to refine my state :

Console ~ Bicycle driving with 40 Mph
PC ~ Automobile driving with 10 Mph

Now what you you gonna choose ?

This arcticle from sept. 2013 in TH have my point of the subject:

Consoles was better than PC 1-2 year befor the last wave of GPU`s - AMD 68XX - 78XX and NV 5XX - 6XX

P.S. - my personal taste is for PC BTW :)

The Xbox One has an APU not a standalone GPU(APU is a CPU and a GPU built in together), the Playstation 4 has it's own GPU but is out of date and only worth less than £100. There are way more game developers on PC, the games are cheaper on PC, games on the new console cost around £50 each as PC games go down to stupidly cheap prices on the Steam sales which are basically constantly on. We have the Humble Bundle which gives you loads of games and helps make money for charity. It is true gaming PC's cost more but you can build one for around £400 £500 which will play all games on at lest medium settings at 60fps, on Consoles you play as 30fps, 60fps in some games and the graphics are WORST than PC on lowest settings. PC gaming lets you have 4K monitors and higher refresh rate, professional Counter Strike player use 120hz monitors so they play at 120fps. That is impossible for Consoles. The PC gaming audience is usually more mature unlike Console COD kids. Steam is now developing its own FREE OS which is being made for the sole purpose of gaming, so better performance. PC gaming loading screens are basically none existence. For me on my old Xbox 360 it took 2 mins to load an area on PC they last around 5, 10 seconds.

I don't believe you know what a high-end pc GPU is, A high-end will cost about 400$ or more and have 5Tflops of computer power while a ps4 only has 1.8Tflops making it a low-mid range GPU.

The OS is not a draw back it hardly uses any recourses on computers 1% cpu usage, 500mbs of ram I hardly say its a draw back. The Draw back is DerectX11 but that's being replace with DX12 and Mantle which will help provide more power for games.

Consoles use 3-4gbs of ram and 2 whole freaking cores for there OS, if that's not a draw back I don't know what is. They are obviously not optimized for the one purpose of gaming. They are optimize for social life.

If you use a $400 gpu with 5Tflops and a 8-core cpu for $130 you can build a really good computer for $700-$900 and have about 3-4X the performance of a console
