An accurate look on how a typical console enthusiast looks when blindly arguing against a person who games on a PC.
CharlieKun, CONSOLE, PC, Torrence Davis
lmfao that how it be people are just noobs
Lmao, that was awesome! couldn’t have said it better myself
Multi platform games will never convince me to pay $2000 for a gaming PC. Show me some exclusives. -50 million strong.
I can build a beast of a gaming pc for you for $600 and YOU know that’s a great price.
What advantage does pc gaming have over console gaming other than better graphics? Seems to me thats the only advantage it has over consoles and things like mods for games really dont interest me at all. Come on torrence give me a reason to get a gaming pc over a console next gen other than better graphics and mods.
All i keep hearing from these PC gamers is how great the hardware is and why its better than consoles. I never hear them say anything about GAMES!
No, you heard them talk about games. You just dismissed the games they talked about because they weren’t Uncharted 2 or God of War 3 or said that they sucked even though they aren’t out yet. And you never really explained what is supposedly so amazing about GoW3 or Uncharted 2.
“And you never really explained what is supposedly so amazing about GoW3 or Uncharted 2.” This statement has left me stunned. In all seriousness I have to ask you what games do you consider amazing? I know that you probably look down on me as some PS3 fanboy who isn’t worthy enough to be taken seriously but if you can answer that simple question that’d be enlightening. From that statement I can tell that you and I have little in common when it comes to games so I’d like to understand what you like a bit better to see where you’re coming from.
Okay, Jay. So what if PS3 exclusives don’t interest some people at all? What then? Why discount better graphics and mods as nothing and expect that to mean anything? Other than a few highly over rated games running on old graphics hardware what’s the big reason to buy a console again?
You’re tired of hearing it because it’s true and you can’t do anything to change it. The majority of gamers don’t give a shit about PS3 exclusives either. The majority of gamers is just a big group made up of smaller groups and there’s no point in trying to pretend that “they” support you.
Where did i say anything about ps3 exclusives you dumbshit, you seem to have an agenda against ps3 exclusives seem as you keep mentioning it.
I’m sorry Jay, I mentioned PS3 exlcusives because michael does and that’s the argument you are jumping into. It’s a shame you couldn’t pick that up from the context of the argument. Your “point” is still pretty dumb and says nothing. Consoles STILL run on old tech whether you or your made up “majority of gamers” want to hear it or not. And obviously you have a pretty stupid anti-PC agenda at work so I really don’t know why you think I’m going to take your whining about an anti-PS3 agenda seriously. In fact, you know who goes around bitching about an anti-PS3 agenda? PS3 fanboys. You quack like a duck Jay. Also it doesn’t help your argument much that your childish cussing makes you sound like an idiot or emotionally retarded teenager. I guess you hope people will be intimidated or impressed by that crap huh? Oh well.
“What advantage does pc gaming have over console gaming other than better graphics? ” Gameplay and the amount of variety that many of the little known games have. Small games like minecraft that focus on the gameplay play rather than beefed up graphics. Well known games like Starcraft 2 fall into this category for the same reason. It’s just like i said before; i would rather play an fps, rts or rpg with a mouse & keyboard hands down every time. And for the biggest reason why anyone would go out to get a gaming pc is for the fact that your not going to be just gaming on it. If i’m going to be building a gaming pc, its not going to be just for gaming. while consoles can browse the web, play music, watch videos (even edit them though the editor for ps3 sucks ass) its still incapable of doing many of these simple tasks on the same level as a pc. Your more likely to be getting your money’s worth if you were to go for a pc in the long run, regardless if its only for gaming. If your spending more than 600 bucks to buy a pc only to play games on it, your doing it wrong.
You know one of the big advantage of pc gaming, that lots of people don’t bring up is being able to host your own server. Like, for example; when a game a old game that you still play is no longer supported by a company and they bring down the servers you can still play online, where on consoles its dead. Also you can have full admin rights and completely control your environment. Don’t like a stupid troll ban; or racist ass hole ban without waiting, wanna add funny stuff add it, control the maps that are played etc etc. As far as i know you cant host servers on ps3 or 360.
Most of the advantage comes from the fact that not only does the pc have the ability to upgrade itself, but it also has the ability to multitask. It really doesn’t matter for mods though, but when you start to get bored of a game you know you can just search up an amazing mod, and enjoy. Your reason to get a gaming pc is its cheaper than you think, maybe it can get expensive, but your just too lazy to save up. And most people complain about the controls, well stop, because all you have to do is hook a 360 controller up to it. And if you dont want to buy a connector, well the 360 comes with one. As for the PS3, buy the controller, download and install the software.
The advantage PC gaming has over Console is its upgradability, PC users dont have to wait for the newest system to come out for Dx11, and when the newest and most improved Dx comes ut, we just have to see if our Graphics cards are compatible. Another is multitasking, can you watch Netflix, while surfing the Internet, while playing Oblivion, while looking at pictures, for most people graphics doesn’t matter, but for people who do care, they want the most realistic they can get, so they have Dx11. And if you even dare mention controllers, all you have to do is plug a 360 controller into your PC, or for PS3 just buy the controller and download and install the free software. Then the mods, they are for the people who get bored after playing a game multiple times, and guess what, the PC allows mods, legally. I play the 360, and I do enjoy it, but I hate when people start to say there are no reasons to get a gaming PC, to me there are more reasons to get a gaming PC, rather then a console
And what games can i play on it, but multi platforms? Playstation 3 has MGS4, GT5, and GOW3. Xbox 360 has halo and gears. Even the wii has mario. PC is about RTS and MMOs. Show me a PC exclusive in the same genre as MGS4, GOW3, or gears.
Why does it have to be exclusive again? Playing mutiplats a lot better than PS3 will is a decent advantage. And then when you were shown PC exclusives you said they sucked including the the ones that weren’t out yet. When show PS3 exclusives that got poorly reviewed you tried to act like they were still awesome. MGS4, GoW3, are all fairly old news now. Their sales have slowed down. ‘m not sure why they keep being brought up as exciting. But if you want to to talk about older content, Gears WAS ON PC with EXTRA CONTENT. HALO was on PC with ONLINE (unlike the console version, without an external tunneling program) and looked a lot better. HALO 2 was on PC too, and again, it looked a lot better. Better hardware does that. PC is about FPS games that move a lot faster than they can on console.It’s about the best version of rpg’s. It’s about exclusive rpg’s.
“When show PS3 exclusives that got poorly reviewed you tried to act like they were still awesome.” So you base all game quality on reviews? If so what is a poor review? “MGS4, GoW3, are all fairly old news now. Their sales have slowed down.” Does sales equally quality? “‘m not sure why they keep being brought up as exciting.” Because they are amazing games that can’t be played on PC. “But if you want to to talk about older content, Gears WAS ON PC with EXTRA CONTENT. HALO was on PC” LOL! Halo 1&2 and Gears 1. How did the sequels play on PC? If M$ has given on PC gaming maybe it is dying!?!?!?
” So you base all game quality on reviews? If so what is a poor review? ” You think I’m going to base game quality on what Michael says? Oh but I forget. Lots of PC exclusives not out yet suck. I forgot. ” Does sales equally quality? ” You mean yesterday’s definition of quality? Sales slowed down = yesterdays games = not so much in demand now = what have you done for me lately = who cares about them? = what relevance dot hey have to today’s market? Does Michael making a lot of disproportionate noise about something =quality? Does 2005 graphics tech = quality? LOL. “Because they are amazing games that can’t be played on PC.” What’s amazing about them besides your insistence that they are amazing? Who finds them so amazing and why? Why did they stop selling if they are amazing? What’s so amazing about 2005 graphics tech? ” LOL! Halo 1&2 and Gears 1. How did the sequels play on PC? If M$ has given on PC gaming maybe it is dying!?!?!?” Gears 2 really has nothing to with MS. It’s an epic game. Halo 3 isn’t on PC YET. Yet. Halo 2 took a long time to come out too. About three years. So, when did MS give up on PC gaming again? If they did, then why are they releasing a new Age of Empires game on PC then?
I just sent you two links to under 600.00 Crysis 2 running gaming rigs..! Share that information on the Warzone when ever the debate reactivates…lol…oh and shout me out….shamless plug..! (((((runs back into the shadows…!)))))
Yeah. And a few good PS3 exclusives and a lot of forgettable ones will never convince me to buy a multiplatform game on a console when I can get it cheaper on PC, and have it run much better, and still use a controller if I want to. Not to mention I can download mods that change the game if I want to. -1 billion+ strong.
Anyone stupid enough to spend that much on a gaming PC is better off staying away from PC gaming imo.
LMFAO CharlieKun this is the best post EVER! I was hoping to see a WWE belt strategically placed somewhere in the background considering who the PS3 fan reminded of.
omg hahaha lmao that was great. tor you wrong for taking a little jab at hiphop at the end there lol. dude jacking off to kratos lol
two thumbs up on that! Thats some original shit!
I just died … LOL… too funny… Good job Charlie
lol funny but even though tor you still look like a fanboy excluding xbox from the whole conversation its not just PS3 fanboys, it’s also Xbox sir, and you just showed your colors lol. N e ways, hate to agree even though i can really give a flying fuck, PC gaming is great at what it does, and thats play games with amazing visuals, therefore better performance. But the biggest debate of all whether you hate to admit it, where are the games? you clearly say its not about the graphics, but thats all pc gamers ever boast about visual and hardware performance but nothing about games, hence my point about ohhh they dont need to publicly tell gamers to get a pc cause it’s a common commodity but key thing is casuals and others alike dont buy PC to play games, but in your logic playing solitaire makes you a gamer??? lol you said it in the warzone last week check it if you dont believe me lol funny stuff. I wont sit here and say PC is dead cuz people still play it but i guess the correct term is, PC is OLD NEWS, ask a casual which one would they prefer…… console or PC and i bet console will come out on top. YOu think not? Then imma just have to do a video on it. You might say, Casuals dont know anything and we shouldnt count them. Well….. young sir (LOL had to laugh when i typed that) they make up a large margin of the market, because if that wasnt the case wii would have been in its grave a looooooooooong time ago. PC is only better than console because you have the option to modify that is all, but you cant play graphics and last time i checked gamers became gamers to play games. Why do you think most devs gear everything towards consoles? cause with your logic everyone should get a pc, the biggest thing of them All which you can fight me on this is pc gamers still get consoles!!!!!! why go to something shitty if consoles are really that bad? hmmmm do i need to say why? Oh gawd damn you guessed it….. tha mother fucking games. If consoles had the option to modify then i could say PC is Dead but for now they can sit quietly in their little corner. Practice what you preach TOR lol Now i am the god sham god of debates Mutha fucka anyone who disagree can lick my nuts with peanut butter ugh!
Well, the thing is, I don’t see any 360 fanboys here saying PC is dead and can’t really compete with consoles. Maybe that’s why huh?
This video made my day. You need to go into comedy Tor. You’re hilarious! This video hasn’t convinced me that gaming on a pc is better though. Yeah a pc can do all of that fancy stuff but does that mean that I should just sell my PS3 and upgrade my PC? Hell no. PC gaming may be for some people and that’s cool but I personally don’t want to sit in front of my monitor clicking away on my mouse and keyboard when I can instead play on a wireless controller in front of my HDTV. Still, this video gets a thumbs up for making me laugh my ass off. Good shit!
Haha that’s so true. Now who does that remind you of? That conversation sounds too familiar.
I just like to game on PC because of the games to be honest,and the customisability of the games with the mods – there’s a huge modding community and more of a mature online gaming community, and I also like controls better for most types of games. So those are some of the obvious advantages of PC gaming. Oh yeah and also the graphics are better. Of course it’s not just PC with all the good exclusives, because different consoles also have a few good exclusives if you look around hard enough such as Halo Reach, Capcom vs Marvel 3, and God of Warr 3.
Wow…. that was good. Charlie, Torence, you guys need to do more of these. Because I was laughing my ass off over here. You do more of these every once in a while, and People will flock over to watch them.
Just a SMALL example of PC Announced Exclusives in the works or currently released. Anyone who sees this SMALL list of exclusive PC games and STILL thinks that PC is dead or that consoles are in a better position game wise or exclusive wise are blind, ignorant delusional fanboys. FYI, all those in this thread and the warzone 124 thread saying that PC is dead or that there is nothing on the PC seem to be the typical, already established well known Sony loyalists on this site. This video is a perfect example of the mentality of ALL the well known Sony leg humping loyalist with their ignorant views about PC vs. consoles (PS3). PC will ALWAYS be superior to consoles. PC gamers will ALWAYS outnumber console owners. Certain individuals make the comment “50 million strong” regarding the sales of their precious consoles. Well PC is going “1 BILLION STRONG” soon to hit “2 BILLION” by 2014. http://www.gartner.com/it/page.jsp?id=703807 Magicka http://www.gametrailers.com/video/vietnam-launch-magicka/712902 Humble Frozenbyte Bundle http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-humble-frozenbyte/712900 Sanctum http://www.gametrailers.com/video/walkthrough-part-sanctum/712898 Global Agenda http://www.gametrailers.com/video/free-agent-global-agenda/712894 Priston Tale II: The 2nd Enigma http://www.gametrailers.com/video/desert-of-priston-tale/712842 League of Legends http://www.gametrailers.com/video/brand-spotlight-league-of/712790 Anno 2070 http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-anno-2070/712786 Rift http://www.gametrailers.com/video/rogue-class-rift/712784 Amnesia: The Dark Descent http://www.gametrailers.com/video/justine-trials-amnesia-the/712776 Path of Exile http://www.gametrailers.com/video/duelist-trailer-path-of/712682 EverQuest II: Destiny of Velious http://www.gametrailers.com/video/lord-yelinak-everquest-ii/712674 Langrisser Schwarz http://www.gametrailers.com/video/maps-langrisser-schwarz/712663 Adam’s Venture 2: Solomon’s Secret http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-adams-venture/712642 Overgrowth http://www.gametrailers.com/video/stages-for-overgrowth/712644 Darkspore http://www.gametrailers.com/video/hero-spotlight-darkspore/712622 Elements of War http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-elements-of/712620 Spiral Knights http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-spiral-knights/712606 Picaroon http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-picaroon/712596 HoI 3: For the Motherland http://www.gametrailers.com/video/diary-diplomacy-hoi-3-for/712594 Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-11-sins-of-a/712556 Overgrowth http://www.gametrailers.com/video/alpha-125-overgrowth/712537 Karma Online http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-11-karma-online/712519 Battlefield Play4Free http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-battlefield-play4free/712475 Black Mirror III http://www.gametrailers.com/video/visions-wrought-black-mirror/712503 Shattered Horizon http://www.gametrailers.com/video/last-stand-shattered-horizon/712501 Iron Grip: Marauders http://www.gametrailers.com/video/wheel-of-iron-grip/712499 Aida Arenas http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-aida-arenas/712485 Anmynor http://www.gametrailers.com/video/spanish-art-anmynor/712483 Faxion http://www.gametrailers.com/video/shark-vs-faxion/712437 Shadow Harvest: Phantom Ops http://www.gametrailers.com/video/aboard-the-shadow-harvest/712459 Star Trek Online http://www.gametrailers.com/video/the-foundry-star-trek/712453 The Next BIG Thing http://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-next-the-next-big/712348 Realm of the Titans http://www.gametrailers.com/video/tidewalker-hero-realm-of-the/712380 BeGone http://www.gametrailers.com/video/grenade-gameplay-begone/712350 Pirates of Black Cove http://www.gametrailers.com/video/alpha-gameplay-pirates-of/712328 Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal http://www.gametrailers.com/video/launch-trailer-brunhilda-and/712327 Gemini Wars http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gameplay-trailer-gemini-wars/712018 Interstellar Marines http://www.gametrailers.com/video/exclusive-will-interstellar-marines/709841 Hawken http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut-trailer-hawken/711607 Kudos to you Emery Calame for having the strength to continue educating some of the hardcore narrow minded loyalists holding desperately onto their PS3′s and thinking they are the greatest gaming machinery on the market. @ Michael aka mikemadden. I find it amazingly hilarious that you would say “And if graphix is all i care about i would be screaming the same pc gaming BS you guys are. The fact is console games are better than pc.” Yet you constantly pounded your chest about how superior (little at best) the graphics were on the exclusive games for the PS3 like GOW3, Uncharted 2, Killzone 2/3 and GT5 are over games on the 360. YOU ARE doing the same thing these PC guys are doing, except you are doing over the littlest of differences the PS3 graphics are over the 360. It’s amazing how the PS3 fanboys (including HHG) alter their argument or take a different stance on their views that they have stood by for so long just to suit their own needs and hidden agenda’s. I am a console preferring gamer simply because I prefer the easier approach of purchasing a game that I know everyone that everyone else I am playing with or against is playing the EXACT same game. No need to worry about the next upgrade or mod coming out. Simply just purchase and play. Everything is equal across the board. No advantage on either of the connection to who I am playing with or against. I will ALWAYS choose console over PC, but I would never question the superiority of the PC over the console. And to those that say things like “yeah a pc can do all of that fancy stuff but does that mean that I should just sell my PS3 and upgrade my PC? Hell no.” How about you just allow PC and Console co-exist in the gaming realms? Nobody is telling you to upgrade or sell your precious PS3. Just don’t be ignorant about what there is on the PC. Keep playing your PS3 and enjoy it’s games. Sorry for the long post. Been away for awhile and going by the looks of things, I am glad I was. Can’t believe there is even an argument about PC vs. Consoles and people thinking that PC gaming is dead or irrelevant in the gaming demographics. This is not even an argument. Only the simplest of minds would argue this.
Well since you took a quote from me I guess I’ll respond. I don’t have the power to either allow or not allow consoles and pcs to co-exist. If I did I’d be a god and have better things to do then talk about pc vs consoles (like watch galaxies collide!). If you want to play on a pc and not a console then good for you. Here’s a cookie. My problem is that I always get the feeling that pc people want me to dump my console of choice and upgrade my pc so that I can become a real gamer. That’s bullshit. Why should I leave the pc guys to say whatever they want yet I have to keep quiet? That makes no sense. And I don’t know why you are telling me about what is or isn’t on a pc. I don’t give a shit. If you looked at any of my posts I never once mentioned what game machine has what exclusives on it. I know that pc has exclusive games. That’s plain as day. Do I want to play any of these exclusives? Not really but that isn’t the point. If you want to lump me in with the rest of the console users well then ok, I can’t stop that but I never jumped into the exclusive argument. Let’s get that straight. Ok last thing. The number of units sold. You say that 1 billion pcs have been sold. Ok. Great. Is everyone who has a pc gaming on it? I know I’m not. If PCs are the ultimate gaming platform then why haven’t 250,000,000 copies of call of duty been sold on PC alone? World of Warcraft has about 13-14 million users but if there are 1 billion pcs out there then why aren’t WoW’s numbers in the hundreds of millions? I know that the last paragraph may come off as “PCs don’t sell better than consoles” or whatever but that isn’t my point. My point is that saying how many pcs are out there is useless when talking about the pc as a gaming platform since it’s pretty obvious that most people who own a pc do not game on them. I don’t know why you bring up the numbers game. Maybe some other dudes are spouting console numbers at you but I’m not.
“Great. Is everyone who has a pc gaming on it? I know I’m not.” Is everyone who has a PS3 gaming on it? I know people that I know personally and online who don’t game with their PS3 that was purchased simply for the use of Blu-Ray because it was the cheapest BR player around.
I typically game on my PS3 about five times a year and each of those times lasts for between three days or three weeks depending on the game. That means that I usually I buy about five games for it a year. So far I bought Dead Space 2 and Killzone 3 for it and have preordered Portal 2. I expect to get Resistance 3 in November. I also play Shatter, Everyday Shooter, and Trine sometimes even though those are all on Steam now. I like Gravity Crash too. I am pretty much finished with Flow(if you can call that finishing it), Flower, Burn Zombie Burn, Pixel Junk Shooter Critter Crunch, and will probably never play them again. I am considering buying Dungeon Hunter, N.O.V.A. and Eat Them! sometime soon. Also, I would buy Dark Myst and its add ons if I had some a $20 Hong Kong PSN card. That said, you don’t even need a PC that can run games at full settings for the graphics to be better than most console versions. Even Medium settings usually out do the console version by a bit. That’s how far behind those console GPUs are.
I game mainly on my 360 for about the same reasons as you. I have been on Live since the beta for Xbox and for me as far as multiplatform purchases it was always the Xbox and pretty much any exclusive I was interested in on the PS2 I picked up. That has been the case for the PS3 except in the beginning I mostly used it for a BR player & PSN games(Still can’t get enough of PAIN). Controller, friends & family, functionality of Live and the games simply fit me more than the they do on the PS3. I accept how PSN is. I don’t like the slow downloads or the browser or HOME but I accept it how it is and if the updates come to provide better functionality I am all for it. It still works for Blu-Ray and games so that is what I bought it for primarily. I PC game just as much as I do on consoles and it has been that way every since the Commodore 64. I personally don’t get off on the whole hype train about games like Battlefield 3. The game looks awesome but I will hold my hype until I actually get the game. I have been wowed so many times across so many platforms over the years and different variety of genres that graphics alone don’t just do it for me. Not much for me to be excited about the recoil of the weapon in hand when I myself and active duty Air Force and I have been handeling a weapons for years lol. My point with bragging about PC gaming only meant that people that PC game pretty much know like you mentioned about settings that don’t require it to be at full settings to get a better quality and performance on their system. But anytime someone hypes up about PC gaming that video they are gushing over isn’t set on medium settings. Followed with that comes the whole bragging from that perspective when they themselves know they can’t run it at those settings. If you want to build a powerfull system that can run games at full settings then more power to you. The only reason I have worked at Best Buy part time for years is for the discounts and accomodations. So building a new PC doesn’t get as expensive for me. But like you Emerey I just game. I don’t complain about how many exclusives if any are on a system or keep count. I think it is pointless to be concerned about how many systems have sold at this point when all 3 systems have been healthy and if and when the PS3 passes the 360 in sales it won’t matter over all. I believe MS and Sony don’t give two shits at this point if one passes the other because all they care now is about profit. MS hasn’t had official price drop in 3 years and Sony had one last year. It was already stated this gen would last a long time and evidence of the price of the systems alone tell you that already. I don’t see new systems coming for a couple of years still due to the current state of this gen. I personally can wait and have patience. I think a lot of multiplatform owners feel the same way.
I didn’t read your email nor do I respond to ignorance. Grow up and use some common sense. The Community of the Sony faithful have taken over the Bitbag and you are a perfect example of ignorance as to why I very seldom visit that site. Had it not been for only a couple of individuals that do visit that site, I would not have returned. Good day. Man_Of_The_Year
an example of pc gamers being hypocrites”crysis 1 has better graphics then killzone 2″ But crysis was still boring as shit to play, oh it runs at 39768 fps and is in 7286p but the shit is still boring. No matter what you say you crysis fans hype the shit out of that game but no1 really played it but to mod the hell out of the for what? not to make it more fun but to look better gtfo.
I’ve got to agree with you man… Killzone 2 was boring as shit….but at least it looked good. /s….?
really you did not like kz2 im so surprised
yeah man….. i’ll will admit that i enjoyed kz3 but kz2 felt like a chore just to run through.
I am trying to finish Killzone 3 and that was the case for Killzone 2. The single player story is just boring. The games look great althought suprisingly Killzone 2 seems like the graphics look better than 3.
DUDE, i honestly thought i was the only one who thought kz2 looked better than kz3. While kz3 looks amazing, kz2 blew me away the first time i saw it running in action and the attention to detail is ridiculous.
I think the biggest difference that I’ve noticed is the extra motion blur that KZ2 put on things is missing from KZ3. It made moving things (like a raider coming towards you and crashing) really stand out from the background, and it was a really cool effect that made you focus on the crashing vehicle a lot. KZ3 turned that effect way down I guess to make it feel more realistic so there is still some motion blur but not as much. Anyway that killed some of the visual drama.
have to disagree there. kz 2 is one of my favorite shooters besides bad company 2
ITS GOT DA CELLZ AN BUU WAYZZZ lololol that was awesome. Everyone knows that the ps3 is the ultimate gaming machine, and ultimate computing device ever made. its faster than 10 i7s and and 10 gwaphics cards in sli. its so smart is scared skynet off, ty sony for saving the world. To deny any of this shows your stupid and don’t know anything. I mean come on you can read about this on n4gs forums, its all fact.
This was hilarious and 100% accurate. Sadly, it will change nothing. People will keep talking about things they know nothing of. I do not get how a current day console gamer and say anything bad about PC gaming. Have you looked at how you play games on console lately. DLC? Patches? Expansions? Registration codes required to play online? Yeah, consoles are so much better than PC gaming. It could possibly be that consoles becoming more like gaming PCs. Hell, what do Microsoft and Sony call their systems? They do NOT call them video game consoles. They call them COMPUTER ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEMS! Hmmmmm, I wonder why? But yeah, PCs are dying. Dey haz kno gaymes!!11!1
You’re right. All of that stuff did indeed make it over from PCs and it’s made things worse imo. Please forgive me because I am going to go slightly off topic yet still stay on topic. If you buy a Japanese developed game you can pretty much rest assured that it will work correctly and not need patches to fix game crashing bugs. I’m sure that there have been some Japanese games that have had big game breaking glitches in them but I can’t think of any. Meanwhile western developers release buggy games all day. Why? Because most of these guys come from a PC background where for whatever reason it’s acceptable to release half cooked games that you can patch later. The Japanese developers have a background in making console games. Back in the day if you were gonna release a game on a cartridge you had better be damn sure that it was perfect. This mentality is still prevalent today. I wish western developers shared this philosophy. While there are some things that are cool (dlc add ons and demos) I would not be bothered if consoles were strictly offline like in the good old days. With the rise of online gaming and the current western dominance of the game industry today’s consoles are sadly just dedicated gaming PCs. As for the whole “PC is better than Consoles/Consoles are better that PC” thing there is no definitive answer. For me console gaming is better but for others it isn’t. That’s fine. Just don’t try to convince me that you’re right and I’m wrong. It’s all preference and opinion.
lolol love the the fanboy technical jargon. Dey haz kno gaymes!

AWESOME.. HOLY SHIT TORRENCE AND CHARLIE this shit was epic.. omg im still laughin man… you guys should make a a new segment just wit this type of animation, where every week you guys smash a topic that has been going on for ages……
Consoles are closed ended gaming rigs that are outdated 6month after they release graphics card wise, since the cycle of GCs is about that amount. The 360 was outdated fairly quick in the PC world because the Xenos and Xenon werent tech breakthroughs in the PC world at all, the best thing technically about the 360 was consoles finally having a UMA setup. That was already a standard in the PC gaming world. The Cell Processor granted had more longegivity because its not a standard in the market place, but that aswell eventually became unorthodox because we have Multi Core processors with higher thread bandwith that can task faster then the current CBE. granted the Cell per $ in a Farm is more powerfull for raw processing then any Multi Core setup, but the point is that its GC is outdated aswell by PC standards despite the CPUs perks even further then the 360. Bottom line any body who is in denial about console gaming vs PC gaming is really a fool because there one in the same, its really closed end rigs vs open rigs…Consoles can never graphically surpass PCs due to the obvious refresh cycle, and anyone who says PC gaming is dead should check out WoW paid subscription numbers which can give the entire XBL a run for users per server. There is a level of ignorance i find with people that dont understand PC gaming, i love the PS3 this gen and have invested in it moreso then any other because it was the most powerful viable setup for what im using the consle for, but this is really a shadow compared to what a OC duel core or a Quad core custom gaming rig can do now adays…lol in the end its closed in gaming vs open ended gaming…and neither is dead moreso then the other…but console cant do what PCs can do..they can only port the versions the best it can when talking major graphical games ie. Crysis BF3… the only reasons consoles achieve there level of fidelity is strickly due to there closed end nature and the devs having to have to optimize the same GC for what is now 10 years. In the PC world , that simply isnt viable. Cheers!
@PC and consoles owners Please tell me how many PC exclusives you bought this year compared to how many console exclusives you bought this year. If Pc gaming is so elite and have so many great games you should be buying them right? LOL! I bet over half of you defending pc gaming haven’t play a pc exclusive game in years. I love how this Pc vs. console article turned into PC vs PS3. The anti ps3 agenda on this site will never end. I enjoy the tears of haters thats why i come here. -50 million strong
anti ps3 agenda? while i agree mike some of the negative comments on this site are silly, the system is talked about on warzone more than other, mentioned on the forums,comments sections more than any other and usually by people who say the wii,xbox or pc are crap, so what more do you want? not everyone is going to agree with what you say. thats life.
Meh. Tell me which multi-plats weren’t better looking, better controlling, moddable, and cheaper on the PC then.
Answer me this anyone. Out of PC and consoles which ones gives you more bang for your buck, strictly from gaming point of view? As far as I know it’s the consoles, but still if anyone can prove me wrong go ahead.
Obviously it depends with everyone. Everyone plays different amount on each.
You get more bang for your buck from a console if you buy your games used and late. You get more bang from the PC though overall. And the buck difference isn’t that high. And you get a lot of versatility as well that consoles simply don’t provide.
i think i will have to disagree with consoles hindering each others end result quality , there is many instances of proof of instances where consoles have hindered each other. Anyone who can say consoles don’t hinder each others end result is in denial. There are things like development time, cost, R&D that play a huge factor in doing a multi plat game. ie. Orange Box Was the end product hindered by not enough R&D on the PS3 side?, of course! the game was developed granted not by Valve but we saw the most primitive coding done to create a “port” . They took the pipeline on the 360 and tried to implement that with the PPC on the PS3. They shoved the code entirely to the main core with no SPU optimization nor proper coding. This produced the most horrid end result i have ever seen on the PS3 system, while the 360 version being coded like the PC had a tolerable version that gave homage to the PC version. If release dates and R&D was no issue, we would’ve gotten a equally playable game, but in the end we didn’t. Other examples of this are games that want “parity” between consoles. Every developer strives for a level of “parity”. This is even being witness between consoles and the PC genre. But no one can deny that release dates due to development times where hindering the 360 version of Final Fantasy 13 as stated by Square which had already been completed on the PS3 side. Consoles due hinder each other in many aspects to state that they never is really not true as a absolute. Now to the extent that most make it out to be i think is a bit carried away but indeed there are shortcomings when doing a MP in which costs development time and what your team is capable of doing on a given platform to create the most optimized version they can create before a deadline.
with all dude respect on the “what is so special about uncharted 2 etc” i mean cmon guy the game won GOTY and numerous awards for tech and gameplay. Lets not be ridiculous as to why the game is mentioned heavily by the industry…in terms of consoles Uncharted represented a new level of appreciation for game development in general. I mean even DICE and Crytek admit that the game was a gem. Lets not get carried away here..lol..respect is due.
Funny ass shit…fam…! I love the low tech animation, but is saved by it’s content. lmfao I want more…!
Ok I am the brother in law (^^^) he mentioned above me, he told me he posted here so I wanna chip in my thoughts. I bought a beast pc a couple of years back for about £600 quad core 9800gtx all that, all component being having been overclocked by me (that’s why he said die hard pc gamer). Yeh its true I have a ps3 which he kindly gifted me but HEEELLLLLLLLL NOOOOO am I leaving pc gaming, I definitley love how u can jus pick up the controller n mash out some gears of war or unchartered on the consoles, its very simple to just turn on n play,but theres a different kind of satisfaction when pc gaming, n no its not all about the pcs superior graphics, its also the potential complexity of the games which are greater. Of course greater complexity/graphics/modding don’t make a game automatially awesome but pc gaming is different n enjoyed by loads of people, it’ll never die out, think about it all the console games ever made where MADE on a PC.. One thing i hate about controllers is the fact taht theres no twitch reflex shooting possible, no1 can say they can pull of a headshot by panning across the screen quicker than a headshot using a mouse n keyboard Same on the other side i dont like the keyboards realism, the triggers on 360 n ps3 give it a slick feel when playing gears of CODding, especially the rumble function which u dont normally get in keyboards and mice, its all each to his own. I enjoy gaming end of, PS3, 360,PC and N64 for gods sake, its not about what u play on but what u enjoy playing why have debates over things that dont matter? fanboys need to grow up, if u enjoy games u enjoy games who d hell cares which particular object u like playing them on right? Gamers are gamers.

torrance that video is the truth. pc always getting new hard ware and other stuff. consoles have the same hard ware since its launch. i mean tomorrow. what new hardware is going to be on the pc. hell. i guess console gamers are going to have to learn just because a game is not at gamestop sale floor where all those console games boxes are does not mean they dont sell pc games. you have to ask them to pre-order the game. like on MK launch night i went to my game stop and preorder the balls of steel edition on pc and going to pick it up on launch. the balls of steel edition is the duke nukem forever on pc. so they still sell copys on pc games but you need to pre-order then they are not selling that many copys of the game anymore on pc. aka they took them off the floor to save space.
i am just going to reply to my own comment. that you can use the xbox 360 controller on pc too. if you have the microsoft drivers. via the usb cable like for bulletstorm. since i know that i use the controller on pc. i dont really have a need for a console. just my ps3 and wii. but i dont need a xbox 360.
I can not stop laughing at the video. Also, what is the ending song? I can’t figure it out for the life of me.
Spot on with this write-up, I seriously feel this web site needs far more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the advice!
