Will PC over come Console's? i thought you'd all know the answer, the answer is no.

1. The price: They are to expensive, even refurbished PC'S, they got good deals but still to0 much, a console was made to make a cheaper and better version of a PC (or at least try)

2. Sales: you can tell, PS4: over 7 million units, PC'S this year:1 million at the time of this post.

3.:Oh YE CANNY PUT YOUR PC ON YOUR MCGUFFEN 42 INCH TV

oh you cant? *YEAH!* not like i dont have on my 42' with a wireless key bored.
yeah people still dont know that you can play it on your tv.

Oh and 97% of games on a PC can be used with an xbox 360 controller.

those are some reason's why PC will never lead in the market.

Post below what you think on PC'S.

Have a nice day.

Nevermind the fact that pcs are more versatile and not locked into the base game (mods op).

Nevermind the fact that you don't need a 50 in. widescreen tv to play videogames enjoyably (42 in is really small compared to what I usually see in ads)

First of all, source?

Second, this might shock you, but the vast majority of people already own a PC and don't need to purchase a new one every couple of years.

Isn't that a good thing for PC?

How is this a plus in your view? The fact that a PC can be played on a tv is good.

People don't buy new PCs. They buy new parts.

Yep but more people buy those crappy tablets instead so they need consoles to play games.
A PC (Desktop, Laptop) can be used as a computer (Internet, work, audio recording, video editing, programming, emulators for games as well) and for so many more purpose. BTW, an Xbox is a computer disguised as a console.

The people I know who use PCs for gaming build the PCs themselves, allowing them to build the machine they want rather than what Microsoft or Sony gives them. It's true that PC games probably won't match the popularity of console games, but that's because it's slightly more difficult to make them work, and thus out of the mass market's league. In any case, if PCs are so bad, why are the Xboxes and PSs becoming more like PCs with every new iteration?

Are you implying that the console was once ahead of the PC? If you are, that would be interesting knowledge to share with us. From a credible source, of course.

1. The price: They are to expensive, even refurbished PC'S, they got good deals but still to0 much, a console was made to make a cheaper and better version of a PC (or at least try)


You can buy a PC for a couple hundred dollars or less. A PS4 or an Xbox One currently will cost you about $400. A used console may be cheaper, but even a new console's capabilities still don't match those of a 5-year-old PC.

2. Sales: you can tell, PS4: over 7 million units, PC'S this year:1 million at the time of this post.


Unlike a console, you don't need to replace a PC every time a new one comes out. PCs are tools for most people, and while you may need to upgrade to a new operating system once every decade to ensure certain software runs properly on your machine, you don't need to buy a new one every few years in most cases.

oh you cant? *YEAH!* not like i dont have on my 42' with a wireless key bored.
yeah people still dont know that you can play it on your tv.


The hardest part about figuring out how to use an HDMI cable is....well, I actually can't think of anything remotely difficult about plugging one of these into your computer and into your TV.

those are some reason's why PC will never lead in the market.


PCs are not just for gaming; they are also useful tools for almost any job in the modern world. Households may have one PC, or two, or even three. They may have multiple consoles, but not two of the same one. Schools these from elementary level and above will often have a computer in every classroom, or 20 or 30 computers in one room. Most schools would probably only be able to afford PCs in that quantity, since their Mac counterparts are generally more expensive. Companies may be equipped with hundreds or even thousands of PCs, depending on how many workers they have in their offices. It wouldn't be much of a workplace with 3,000 PS4s laying around. According to Business Insider, there are currently 1.5 billion functioning PCs in the world, as of December 2013. That's an average of 1 PC per 4.67 people. And 1.5 billion isn't even half of the total amount of computers ever sold, according to these statistics.

@09philj Saying pcs are not as good for gaming is also kind of dumb, considering LoL, one of the most if not the most popular e-sport, DotA, similar to LoL but I don't think as big, and Starcraft, the major RTS e-sport, are all built for the pc.

At least they were last I heard.

I did not say that. A well built PC is much better. They just won't match the popularity of consoles for home gaming.

I kinda agree on that one^

That's true, also the internet is WAY better than a console.
