I been a console fanboy for about 4 years now and i think its about time i switch i love playing on the xbox but recently some of my friends said i should switch to PC gaming
im currently build a gaming pc right now and i thought if i should even do it to begin with. If i dont do pc gaming i could save a lot of money that i could use to buy stuff for xbox
so what do you guys think, should i stick to console gaming or should i switch to pc gaming and build a pc gaming machine to use
I have both a PC and a PS3. Up until 3 years ago I was strictly a PC person. The graphics on a PC are waaaayyyy better. Being able to reconfigure the keys any way you want is a big bonus too. Games on the PC are generally $20 less than the console version and their prices seem to drop a lot quicker than the console versions too.
The only thing I like better about my PS3 is my son has a PS3 and his laptop doesn't cut it for games, so I can play with him on my PS3. Also, my PS3 is hooked up to a 46" Sony Bravia tv. Not that you can't hook up a PC to a large TV, but in my case it's not feasable.
Anyhow, I still buy games for both because I can't live without either of them because I love the PS3 exlusive games and FPS games are better on the PC.
I played consoles until '07(Playstation -> Xbox, friend had N64/Super Nintendo, PS2 etc which were all beast, got a 360 in '09/'10 - bit of a waste of money now I look back on it), switched to PC and now it's definitely my preference. Online is better (e.g. dedicated servers for most FPS games), controls are better (mouse for FPS's >>>> pad, I really have a hard time playing FPS's on friends consoles now because of it and customisable controls are also awesome), cheaper games, constant upgrading (usually not too expensive but it can be once there's leaps in tech), much faster loading times, modding (e.g. MW2 maps on MW, also Star Wars:Galactic Warfare mod for MW = beast), graphics are better and if you can afford it, multiple monitors and 3D.
Oh and did I mention it's a PC so you can do sooooooooo much more with it, it's not just for gaming/web browsing!
