My computer isn't built for gaming. I plan to fix that when I have the money, though. The games my computer can run, however, are much better on PC. Well, really, the only Ps3 game my PC can run is Portal 2, but that's not the point. I feel the numerous mods make games last much longer on PC. Combine this with a better controller, and you have a superior system. Ps3 is the best for platforming and fighting games, though.

I'd say PC is better cause of graphics and speed you can always update your PC but you can't really update you console unless you're getting more space which doesn't really do anything but give you space to DL expansions and save data... PC also has in my opinion more control when gaming like COD 1 button to knife where as a console if you try to knife you might not knife and knife the air cause the stick moved...and you all know it's happened to you.. :P

PC has the most potential because it can always be updated, console commands, and mods. My biggest fear when buying Steam products and other online games is my computer can't run it. Then I'll be like Fergal. We don't want that. With consoles I don't have to worry about buying games I can't run. WYSIWYG my friend.

I like both in different ways.Any game with many shortcuts, your going to need a PC; and MMORPG's dont really exist on consoles - so i dont have much choice there.I prefer my xbox for chilling out, comfortably.In all honesty, if i had a better laptop/PC - i'd probably play every game i could on it, so yeah .. bring on cheap PC's

PC is the superior race for one simple reason...What exactly is the PS3 and Xbox360 anyway? Just computers put in special cases. With special precautions so we can't upgrade or mod them. Anything I can do on an Xbox or a PS3. I can do on my PC. It goes both ways though. The only difference is, my PC is a much more open source abnd I can upgrade the hardware as I please. i don't have to wait twelve years for them to decide it's time for a hardware upgrade then drop another $800 on a system that won't even be backwards compatable.

True, but you miss out on Demon's Souls, Uncharted, Littlebigplanet, and Dragon's Dogma. I think it's best if a hardcore gamer has a gaming PC and 1 console of his preference.

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 Posted Image

That will never be true. Since when did the GAMEPAD, replace the mouse and k/b?
I'm not hating on consoles because i play them for casual gaming but the keyboard allows you to bind keys that are not even possible on the controller?! liar...

Yup. True. On a PC you have a choice to watch a youtube walkthrough and play your game at the same time. On a console you cannot do that.

Since when was that true? when consoles first came out and the whole world was like "OMG IT CAN DEMOLISH PC GAMES!" Well look at the xbox now. RROD?! seriously the PS3 and the PC are the best consoles.

If you want to get technical. The gamepad came first in the world of gaming.

I do agree though, I like my keybindings and my mouse. That's personal preference though. The consoles have found ways around the fact they have limited buttons to give you enough hotkeys for almost everything.

Why would you spend all that money on a nice video card just to play your game in windowed mode? You are giving up the quality of your game so you can watch YouTube videos? I'd also LOVE to see someone play Starcraft while watching YouTube videos and do well. Bricks would be shat.

>PC Console

lolwut? I think any computer gamer would be insulted to hear that their PC was being called a console. I know I am.

Also, PS3 has every problem you complained that the Xbox360 has. If you're going to hate on something be consistent.

Also, last time I checked the YLoD was almost just as common as the RRoD since the Xbox Slim was released. Xbox also gives you a warranty plus an extended warranty if the cause of death was the RRoD. Last I checked Sony only gives a one year warranty even if you get a YLoD.

Sorry PC people, I'm new to PC gaming. I didn't mean to call a PC a CONSOLE. That is XBox and PS3. PC is out of a consoles league. :D- No_Hax

Xbox can plug in a keyboard, in order to play games such as Final Fantasy "That online one that i dont know the name of" I believe they decided not to let the Xbox have a mouse though, because they didnt want it to be too much like a PC. Wierd.On a second note, i used to play Command and Conquer: Red Alert .. (I think it was that one) using 2 x PS1 and a link cable, and 2 x TV's. This was mouse compatible. Fun times.

Pretty sure you have to buy a special keyboard made by Microsoft to use with the Xbox. Which is stupid.Last time I tried playing Street Fighter on a keyboard it couldn't recognize it as a device. I do know there is a way to mod a normal keyboard to work on the Xbox360 though. Just never cared enough to actually do it. I would rather just spend the $200 and buy a Hitbox.

On the new "black" one, you can just plug in any old keyboard. I only know because i did it to play Final Fantasy - the online. Played for 5 mins and quit tho.. lol.TBH though, im bored of my Xbox, havent used it for anything but DVD's for over a year.
