Yeh cos consoles don't crash or have bugs or need patches or RROD..........oh wait.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

I use to be a big PC gamer but I finally realized consoles were just much easier too.

Yes, Shio, I'm sure I don't scrub my computer with a cloth every day and give it a good blasting of air every time I sit down, but I do take decent care of my machines and PC gaming is still a hassle.

With consoles, the games just work when I pop in the disk and I like that. As an added bonus I get to play games on my comfy couch with a controller on my big TV as opposed to in my crapy office chair on my smallish monitor with a keyboard and mouse (I'm a left so setting up the keyboard is a hassle every time). It's also just an initial investment vs. initial investment plus upkeep over the years followed by another initial investment when it's about time to get a new console anyways.

I could have my PC in my living but then I would have the wife breathing down my neck about their being a computer in the living room or I would either have to hook it all up to play games and then unhook it all again when I'm done which is just unacceptable.

I get that some people love PC with all their heart and that's cool but PC gaming has long been dead to me.

To me, there are just no advantages what-so-ever to PC gaming.

Strike that, I forgot about modding and making my own maps, that's about the only one-up PC games have for me.  Other than that, it's dead to me.

The problem: you either don't take good care of your computer, or you are using Vista.

My PC only crashes once every 6 months too. PC gaming is getting so much easier, hell, in someways even easier than consoles.

Why do you think there are now over 300 millions PC gamers?

Gee I hope he doesn't think that.  Boy if he thought that, he might tell other people that.

The number of people believing a complete falsehood would be enormous.



starcraft - Playing Games = FUN, Talking about Games = SERIOUS

Actually HD consoles are the biggest waste of money I´ve seen. They half-ass PC features and as a result get half-ass games which aren´t as good as games that came out on the PC 5 years ago or more. Talk about pathetic.

You cut that out.

MMO Players count as gamers?

Yes, but the problem here is he's counting Peggle players as gamers.

Try Spider Solitaire, with those numbers.

Everyone has a PC and piracy is extremely easy?

PC sucks, period. It gets one good exclusive in 2 years, there is no reason to own a gaming PC.

gtfo, there are tons of EXCLUSIVE PC games that destroy 99% of the console exclusives.

Really now? More than half the population of the US? That's pretty impressive.

If you end up remembering what this omni-MMO is called, drop a line. I'd like to read up on it.

But can you really add the 200m random MMO players, 70m WoW players, and 30m other players to get 300m?  I would be willing to bet there's quite a bit of overlap there.
