PC is not retard-friendly, that's a huge point down for Americans in general because most Americans are in fact, lazy retards, who are incapable of running a system for more than a few months without fucking their machines up. Therefore, consoles are better for these people with the intelligence of deer running around on the highways of this country. Also, I need consoles for JRPGs. ^^b

I would take offense... if I wasn't the local tech support that gets called for the most random reasons, you'd be surprised the sheer amount of times I have been called by friendly neighbors to find out the problem is an unplugged cable....

@dahuman
my sentiments exactly(excluding the direct attack on a country full of people).
I have always considered console gaming as "Gaming-lite" for some reason. Doesnt make it any less enjoyable, but it always lacked something in the way of intensity,for me. I never got addicted to a game on consoles, apart from Contra(which was for obvious reasons).

I am indie dev and I study and work with computers. I think I have been playing longer than most of you have even lived(That would be about 24 years.).I really don't like HD consoles. Their only purpose seem to be like PC, but they still aren't anything like PC. Playing just about any core game on HD consoles isn't really enjoyable, because they have been dumbed down way too much and they have been made too arcade and easy. My mind just screams 'This crap would belong to kindergarden, if there wasn't any blood.' .Other than core games actually are enjoyable. I mean games like Buzz, guitarhero etc.. Imo nintendo got it right this time and made console like consoles should be. Easy to use, fun to use and funny games. Just like nes, snes etc.

So for me its more like.

PC>wii>HD consoles

My first console was a pong ( not the original a copy that came to europe around 1979-1980) :P

 



PS3-Xbox360 gap : 1.5 millions and going up in PS3 favor !

PS3-Wii gap : 20 millions and going down !

WTF dude, your contradict your self, you say that you don't like HD games because they are dumbed down, too arcady and easy, and then proceed to praise Nintendo despite the wii being further dumbed down from the HD games, having tons of easy arcady games designed for the non gamers, and well it's just full of party mini games.

I can understand if you like the wii and it's games, but it's saying stuff like this makes you lose all credibility.

Also your missing the point about the HD consoles or any console, essentially they are providing the entertainment part of a PC in a simple, cheap unit that plugs into the tv and is easy to use because everything is simplified and to the point, just remember, just because you can setup your PC with your tv and know how to install games and all that jazz doesn't mean others do.

Also as a gaming platform it is cheaper and easier than a PC, even when the PS3 installs it's all automated unlike installing a PC game which requires input before the game installs, then theirs the fact you have to know what your PC specs are in order to know if the PC game can run as per the game requirements, all this is removed when moving to console, and this is one aspect which made console as popular as they are today, not only that but any fool can pick up a PS3/360 or wii game and instantly know that it'll work on their respective console, again the same can not be said for PC unless your know your specs.

Now just because you have this backwards idea that a console should just play game and nothing more doesn't mean others feel the same, their is nothing wrong with having these other functions, after all we live in a world were devices do more than one thing, it's just convinient, and the Iphone proves this, otherwise it would have bombed...so let me ask you, what's so wrong about the HD consoles having all these media options added on top of gaming?

This thread is funny. So full of misinformation, ignorance and general stupidity. Well done Vlad, all the fanboys in one massive thread!



Wow I find it funny that the only thing most people complain about is PC Vs HD, and no one has a word for the Wii...
Not that graphically there is much to say... but the controls and games comments mean that you haven't played wii games enough to judge them.
My gaming ranking is PC>Wii>HD.

To me the HD consoles are just standardized PCs for the masses. Which is probably the direction MS indended from the start.
I am greatefull to MS for the controller compatible with the PC, as it's the first good controler I have for it (tried about 6-7 in the past 15 years), and with the cross of Console games it makes the PC not lack as much in some games any departements... (DMC4 - RE5 - SFIV are expamples of cross games, thanks capcom and add sports games that are now just as playable as on consoles).

The only argument against HD in the HD vs. PC argument is that DLC should be free. Everything else is BS.

^This!

 

This thread is just another attempt at PC gamers trying to make themselves feel better from all the downers happening with pc gaming lately, what ever makes you feel better is fine, just remember your views are in the minority and rather delusional.....

Apparently most Wii users bother to both read and comprehend the OP before firing up the flamethrowers. :p

you know HD!=HDTV
you don't even need a hdmi port to get hd resolutions even though there are like 2 display ports that are compatible with hdmi except for sound I think.
nowadays even laptops come with a 1920*1080 resolution so you can't say that PC doesn't have HD :
Also the graphics of the wii are lot more primitive that the PC one, it's the PC that made gaming popular, and had the best hardware, hell it even made windows popular thanks to direct X (If 3dfx would have played better and survived we would all be using glide now witch is OS agnostic (a subset of OpenGL with some additional stuff ) and many console games end up on the PC anyway.
Your arguments are flawed in so many ways.
Lack of good controls ? the mouse is considered more accurate than a touchscreen device , and of course the analog sticks , and you say the controls are bad?
I am not going any further.
