PC is clearly the hands down winner of the console war. I will explain1: Graphics. PC games have changeable graphics depending on your specs.2: Games. PC has the widest range of games out there.3: Controllers. XBox and PS3 have only one controller type. PS3 players say that the Xbox controller is to big. Xbox players argue that the two analog sticks beside each other is a redundant design. Why not just use a mouse? Mouses come in many different shapes and sizes depending on your hand size and how you play.4: Mods. I will use CoD as an example but this applies to most games. After a couple months of play and some people get bored, the developers release mod tools for the brilliant minds out there to play around with until they come up with an amazing new game type that could include anything. Consoles just don't have this capability.Feel free to discuss these points and add anything on.

PS3 or Xbox are better to play, first because they generaly have better graphics than PC and use a command instead of a mouse is more fun ;)

Better graphics than PC? You must be bonkers sir. PC graphics make console graphics look like tetris...

Agree with all your points, except that PC has the widest range of games (it doesn't unless you count older games, much fewer new releases compared to the consoles) and the controllers.I prefer the console control method; it gives me a reason to spread out on a bed/couch and play in comfort. For PCs I tend to sit upright in a chair and it gets annoying after awhile. Graphics on the PC are definitely better, but it could cost you $2,000 too, which isn't really comparable to what you get for $200 with a console. Mods are HUGE though, unbelievable how much they make every game better.

PC graphics are obviously better, but to be fair, if you have good enough graphics with the consoles, would you really care that much if PC were that bit better? I couldn't care less as long as they are decent. ;) The mods are a great bonus though, love the ones in Counter Strike when I used to play that old game... But I can't agree with the controllers, I'd much rather the compact size of a PS3 controller with the buttons together over a keyboard and mouse. And David has a point there, it's much easier to lay back and relax on the couch rather then sit straight up in front of a computer.Overall, I'd rather the PS3, especially since all my friends play PS3. PC is still good though.

I have a black leather office chair at my computer, I'd have to say I prefer it over lying down. And I do believe PC has a wider variety, it's just not as well televised. PC gets the large part of the indie games that are actually pretty good but aren't at all televised.

You can still play GBA/PS64 games on an emulator ;)Besides that, agreed on all point Mageman ;)

You can't count browser or emulator based games though. At that point the only difference is software, since the 360 and PS3 have capable hardware for such things. If I wanted to play RuneScape on my PS3 I could in theory.

Yup you have a point wen you say that PC have better graphics than consoles but David have a point wen he says that you get good graphics in PC for 1500+ $ and 360 or PS3 is like 200 $ or 300$ only...About the controler, I don't like that much to play fast movement games for example like BF3 or cod or some other games like that in PC, it's not that fun...In other way calm games like adventure or policials.. that shit is better for PC.

You can actually get a computer for so cheap if you buy the parts and put it together yourself. And price can't really be brought into it, as most people already have a serviceable computer and just require a graphics card or ram upgrade.

you forgot cost... if you want a lagg free game of 20v20 on cod4 on PC you need a good PC... your looking 600£ plus.where as with the xbox and PS3 200£, its lagg free.But I agree I do like PC Gaming, but not for shooters, the controls are too extensive and varied across games "/ find my self hitting every key on the keyboard just to throw a gnade :)

If I wanted to upgrade my PC, he is like 5 6 years old and to get good I would have to make it a graphical + ram + video + audio update and it would cost alot, so basicly depends on the Pc...

That's because you have to get used to it, trust me, once you learn to aim with the mouse and move around its much better than a console.

In my opinion, it really depends on the game and whether or not there is a good modding community behind. Games like Skyrim and Oblivion are definitely made much better on the PS3 with modifications. Otherwise, I'd just as soon have the game on a console where I know compatibility won't be an issue.
