Hi, I have two choices, one is to get an xbox one but the problem is that its games are from 60-100 dollars and im not that rich guy to get one of them every week. The second option is to buy a gaming pc for $2000. This will run games equal to xbox one. But its way too costly, the prices are too much in my country of computer hardware parts. So what do u recommend? Xbox with costly games or a costly pc with free games?

More about : xbox

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Games for Xbox and or PS are a different animal and experience. Less variety no options like on PC as in Steam where you can basically get a free game per week, The ability to use Mods to change games to your liking. Console gaming and PC gaming are totally different IMO. depends on what you like best.

Also i am not sure about where you live or what the cost is of a new machine for you but in US dollars you can get a decent gaming rig that runs pretty much everything for around $500 realistically. $2000 is high (in US dollar) even for a high end gaming cpu.

And if you are willing to build your own, you can always upgrade spend on budget now upgrade as you go along.

Free games? Games(current games) on the PC aren't free.

A $2000 PC will not run game equal to the XBOX One, it will destroy it. A PC does a whole lot more than a console as well, and you aren't restricted to exactly what the manufacturer wants to shovel you.

Steam gives away games all the time. Not to mention F2P MMO's.

Planetside 2 is a good example.

there are TONS of free games on the PC to download. Not to mention some sites not to be mentioned =p

i agree
you can build a decent entry gaming rig within $500, i think you can outperform xbone with $800-$900 gaming pc

While there are many free games, most of the titles you would get on the XBOXOne would not fall into the free category. You may be able to get them at a lower cost on a Steam sale, but probably not free. Using the same logic, there are also low cost and free games available on the XBOXOne.

Do you mean $2000 US? If so, that's not equivalent to an Xbox, its in a different universe than an Xbox. The Xbox One runs many or most of its games at sub-1080p resolutions or 30 FPS—often both—that's pretty easy to beat with a PC today. You could still do better with a way cheaper system than that.

This is not Logic this is fact. Am not trying to start a debate here but there are literally TONS of free games on PC that you cannot get on any console that are current games mostly in the form of MMO's.

But yes you are right games like COD advanced warfare are going to come with a price tag on console and PC alike. But still the fact remains that there are almost countless Free games on PC that are "current games" maybe not mainstream games like COD as stated above. The games you can get free for Consoles are normally garbage games IMO <--. and on Xbox one you are still technically paying for it with your gold subscription. The point being here the selection of free games on the pc is limitless and also main stream games with some google searches can be found for more than 1/2 the cost at times then on console which is almost always a solid $59.99 per game new.

Its far better to build a gaming PC...... I am glad you understand that whilst the xbox one price might be cheaper than a gaming computer, the cost of games will be challenging. Honestly, you don't have to spend $2000 US to get a good Gamer. That's why it i good when you build your buy your own parts and build a system yourself. I can put together a system that will perform like the xbox one for far below $2000. As for PC gaming, you don't have to worry about buying games as you can download almost any games with their crack via torrent sites.

The games are just there on the internet where you can download them.. People who spent their money on buying an original copy of these games just ripped them and upload them to their sites.

I just sold my PS4 and built my first computer. I was promised 60 fps and 1080p resolution and it was not delivered, I'm not sure if it will ever be at this point. I spent about $1500 on a computer, including monitor, keyboard, mouse, and OS. It destroys the PS4, there is no comparison performance wise. I had 3 games on PS4 at $60 each, in 3 months on PC I have almost 20 games and I don't think I paid more than $80 for all of them. I'm taking BF4, Titanfall, all the Bioshocks, Borderlands 2, Fallout 3 and New Vegas, Planetside 2, Skyrim, Portal 1 & 2, etc.

I really wanted to play Bioshock Infinite and Fallout again, but my PS3 had broken so I'd have to buy a new one to play them again on console. On PC, guess what? My PC that pushes BF4 at 100+ FPS also plays Fallout, Skyrim and Bioshock.

I will never buy a console again, nor can I recommend one in good conscience. I would consider a Wii U, but that's about it.

well that is a good gaming rig
you can play watchdogs and BF4 at ultra settings 1920x1080 more like 50+ fps
IMO R9 290 will be the best for you
