I used to build my own PCs (desktops). It all changed when I bought this baby!

No need expensive capture cards anymore because I use laptops.
My main laptop is connected to a 30 inch HDTV, has a USB mouse connected to it, a USB soundcard ( http://www.amazon.com/Behringer-UCA202-Audio-Interface/dp/B000KW2YEI/ref=sr_1_1/176-9257023-4700757?ie=UTF8&qid=1375399083&sr=8-1&keywords=behringer+usb+dac ) , nice speakers ( http://www.amazon.com/Creative-GigaWorks-Multimedia-BasXPort-Technolgy/dp/B001S14DYO/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top/188-7383788-9942643 ), a turntable to digitize my vinyls ( http://www.ionaudio.com/products/details/ttusb ) , and a gamepad.

My other laptop that I use in the living room only has a USB mouse and a gamepad connected to it.
Now try to connect all these to a console! xD

I prefer my consoles. I like having dedicated apps for all of my entertainment other than games. I still have to pay around $800-1000 for a decent computer to run SOME games, but I still can't run everything. Yeah, there are a bunch of indie titles for pc, which gives them a lot more games, especially with Gerry's mod, steam, and all that, but they're pretty much all MMO's, which are the same god **** thing over and over again, or they're indie games, which a good 90% of them suck, or you beat the game in 20 minutes and never play it again. Games and accompanying DLC's are usually$5-$25, but each time you have to buy a new one, it adds up

With consoles, I spend 500 or 600 bucks, and I get the top of the line, every time. Games are $60, but I at least get a full game, that will give me a few hours of gameplay. I also like having a controller versus a keyboard. I prefer consoles over PC's any day.
There are also a lot more fail point where a PC could break versus a console.

I think it comes down to preference really. I don't like playing online, because people are ******bags, and I like immersive, full stories versus just online multiplayer doing the same thing over and over again.

30fps 900p is not top of the line. I wouldn't even call that average. Source.

It is incredibly easy to play games with a controller on PC.

but they're pretty much all MMO's, which are the same god **** thing over and over again, or they're indie games, which a good 90% of them suck


Have fun never playing a MOBA or RTS.

Halo: Wars is technically an RTS.

Pyro it sounds more like your talking about a console when you talk down to PC. Bye all the Fallout and ElderScrolls games to date most of which require no internet and the entire game can be purchased at a very reasonable price. Getting only new copies will cost you about 150$ if that, and it will keep most people entertained for a VERY long time. One more thing, It kinda makes sense that most people on this sight would be PC gamers considering that there isn't even a quarter of the games for mobile devices. Still consoles do have their merits, mainly games that only came out for that console that are a little more difficult to emulate on PC.

Literally the only thing going for consoles is their exclusives. The only reason I'm getting a PS4 is for some of dat fine From Software Hidetaka Miyazaki RPG gameplay. I might pick up an Xbone just for Halo. Those exclusives are evil.

*sigh* CONSOLE GAMES ARE MADE ON PC AND CONSOLES ARE NOT AS GOOD BECAUSE MOST GAMES ARE ON BOTH (unless exclusive e.g the last of us is ps3 only)
