  1. Given that the Xbox One is literally a mainstream gaming PC, I'd only recommend getting one if you want the exclusives for the console, like Forza 5, or Ryse.

    Other than the exclusives, a good gaming PC will be far more useful and better for gaming than any console could ever be.

    Not to mention that games are usually much cheaper on PC thanks to Steam sales.

    Well, there's also the friend option. You could get the PC and mooch some Xbox One time from a friend. ^^;
    No use spending a bunch of money on a console for just 2-3 games.

    Of course, if you only want the PC for DayZ, the same rule applies. Why spend the money for 1-2 games?

    I always prefer the PC because there is so much more it can do that a console can't. (Even beyond gaming.)
