In my opinion, it is better for me for the following reasons:

2) Controller and couch gameplay. I don't want to sit on a desk exactly like I do when working. I want to relax with a gamepad. Before any PC gamer arrive here saying I can use a gamepad on a PC, let me just say one thing: what if I want to play an online FPS? At least on console I know everyone is also using a controller so I can use mine.

8) To play online, you will have to use a M/KB (refer to 2). That's a nightmare for tendinitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. No, it doesn't matter if you have an ergonomic setup, you're just delaying the inevitable. I work a lot on PCs, so I don't want to increase my risk even more. Also, for work, you can use a touchpad and that decreases a lot the risks. I don't plan on reaching my 50s without being able to use a freaking pencil anymore.

8). Be careful! I had an ergonomic setup at work, worked 8 to sometimes more than 12 hours a day on development, then played Everquest at home with mouse plus keyboard, until I literally collapsed from back pain while the doctor had already told me 10 years earlier to find another job/profession. (Already quit playing Everquest and Wow long before it got that far)
Currently I'm seeing a chiropractor weekly and have to lay on a wedge every day to stretch my neck both of which I'll be stuck to for the rest of my life. My lower neck started fusing and my head position was all out of alignment yet I'm 'lucky' it's slowly getting better with excersize and no more PC work. I can't sit longer than an hour behind my laptop nowadays even with a trackpad before my neck starts hurting uncomfortably. My right shoulder and wrist are very crunchy.

2) I wish there was an option to not have to play against wheel users in GT Sport. Using a wheel is uncomfortable to me as well (see above) yet playing GT Sport it's clear that wheel (and pedal) users have an advantage. It doesn't help my fingers aren't all that great anymore for feathering the throttle, thanks to pc...
