because Console gamers are all about the graphics. Until a PC gamer comes along to shut them up, and then they change their tune to "its not all about graphics, you elitist PC gamers"
(Speaking from experience as a PC gamer)


sorry but ever PC gamer I speak to fails to build me a PC for £350 that will rival a PS4....and they cant even guarantee it will run games as long as the PS4 will. Maybe youre different?

People who built their PC's when PS3 came out cant even run COD ghosts anymore because of RAM requirement, yet the PS3/360 still can.

What?

I wasnt stating that it can be done. I was merely pointing out that in terms of pure graphical power, if you have an unrestricted budget, the PC is a better powerhouse.

I dont want to get into a whole pc gamers vs console gamers thing, that is not what i want.

I was merely stating that XBONE and PS4 fanboys are always arguing about graphics, and whose is the best, when in the end graphics isnt what makes good games (though it can help with certain genres)

why is the pc better then both because it is more powerful.. so why s the ps4 better then the xbox one because it is more powerful.. why is the steam box worse then everything its more expensive then a computer which is better.

What?

The steambox is just a heavily customised PC running Steam OS.

Just like buying a pre-built PC is more expensive than buying parts seperately, the Steambox is more expensive than buying parts seperately.

i think its better for 3 reasons:
1. Better Value for money (at this time)
2. Better support from the company who made it (It will actually have amazing exclusives till the day it dies)
3. Its made for Games

No. 

The pc is more powerful than both because it is more powerful.

Its NOT better because it is more powerful.

More power does not equal better. And thats a fact.

The pc is maybe better in generating graphics in the way people call high end.

This makes the pc better in this aspect. And some other aspects as well. But this does not make the pc better overall, just because its more powerful.

Just like the most powerful TVs, cameras, cars, boats and other things are not always rated the highest overall.

First off, there has been plenty of gaming consoles that were weak for its time that ended up being great like the ps2. Second off, no one besides Sony's first party studios are going to be able to take advantage of it. I was looking at these side by side graphic comparisions between xbox one and ps4 and can't tell much difference and the difference will be even less noticable to anyone else that is playing the game a few feet from the t.v. and not standing right next to the t.v. Surely this can't be a legit reason to prefer a console over another.

huge differnce in power just look at the pics, and this is still early, wait till the games start really pushing the consoles. copy image url and paste to your browser.

If this gen holds, like the PS360 gen, the PS4 will be the place for RPGs. MS started off last Gen getting some pretty good RPG exclusives, but ended up with far less than Sony (who picked up a few, and others appeared on the PC)

This is what I care about.

I left the WiiU off this for a reason, since it is not part of the OPs assumptions.



The PS4 being more powerful (GPU and RAM bandwidth) is only one of the reasons people say it's the better console choice this gen. The other two reasons are $100 lower price point and Sony's history of 1st party game studios being more successful/prolific that MS 1st party studios. Add that all up and the PS4 is logically the better choice if someone is only going to buy a single console this gen.

You must've lived under a rock in the past month then. The difference in multiplats this time is much bigger than any difference between PS3 and 360 multiplats. No game on 360 had ever an advantage as big as of 180-360p over the PS3 versions. 3rd parties are already taking advantage of PS4s extra power and it will become even more apparent in the coming years. Your last sentence doesnt make sense. It is indeed a legit reason to prefer one console over the other, especially if that console has better graphics AND costs 100 bucks less. There couldnt be a bigger and more legit reason to prefer one over the other.



ps4 and xbone, are Pc's from 2010/2011, so this argument of "power" is pointless. you can say whatever you want but thats the reality.

exactly i prefer sony first party games over microsoft, but if you switch ps4 and xbones position, i would have no problem in chossing the xbone, 100$ cheaper and significantly more powerful = easy choice.
