PC, definitely. I do both PC + PS3 gaming. And PS4 is due late next year.
What's your budget? PC gaming is possible from very small to very large budgets
This, I have a PS3, which is 24 months old now, and the tray is worn out nearly. I use it for the exclusives that I like, COD with some mates and Fifa UT as it isn't hacked on PS3 too much. It's all I use it for now is for those games and some movies.
Make a PC that will last 3 years for gaming then get a PS4 when it has it's bugs fixed and is under £300, $350.
I'll build you a PC if you want just tell us the budget.
Spat55 that scares me you say you have a 7850 but want the newer version. You see for me I have the HD tv and so I don't think I can go above 1080p so most video cards should be able to produce that at extreme graphics, do you think?
If you are only using your tv as a monitor, crossfire/ali is a waste. It only shines when you have multiple monitors or using really high resolutions (same thing i guess). Some games don't scale well with crossfire too. Stick with 1 good card. The 7870 or 7950 would be good.
I have a decent gaming PC and a PS3. My PS3 is like three or four years old and it works like brand new. I prefer to play on my PS3, but if I were you I would save up for a PS4 and use a little bit of the money to do some minor upgrades to your current PC just so you can play a few games at a decent setting. I happen to prefer consoles.
Just giving my two cents i am by no means an expert.I followed advice on the forums and built a new computer for a little over a thousand dollars it has CPU i52500k GPU asus7870 DC2-2GD5 AMD 4G ddr3 mem and mobo gigabyte s.1155 intel z77 atx.
This system plays everything pretty much maxed and i am in gaming heaven.I was also a console only guy forever having a 360 who died on me many times and i still have a working ps3.I do not even touch my ps3 anymore i thought games looked good on consoles but i was blown away by the pc not to mention no slow down and no load times and i can still play with my controller.
I also heard the inel CPU were better for gaming than the bulldozer ones but like i said i am no expert and maybe i was taken fora ride.Just my two cents!
FX 4100 is a bulldozer chip, which was a horrible disappointment (It was worse than the previous generation of chips at integer calculations). the newest series (4300, 6300, 8320, 8350) are much better and just a step behind intel chips.
