The glaring omission in this logic is cost. 10 years ago you didn't have $1000 graphics cards. Sure, a Titan can outperform a $400 console, good for it.
There's no $400 PC that will ACTUALLY perform nearly as well as the PS4 or XB1. 'Actually' meaning, in the real world. Not some "ooh look at these 'comparable specs'" fantasy world.
Consoles vs. PC is still pretty much the same as it has always been, the difference being more expensive cards are available now.
This is 100% right. Shame it won't get attention because it isn't a bait post
PC vs Console is stupid and unfair to compare.
They say PS4 is low to mid entry PC, yet you walk into say... a Best Buy and you will see many low to mid entry PC's. First look at price and then performance and you will see how the PS4 beats ANY PC at $400 or near that price.
First it's very unfair because a Pc must do a ton of things consoles don't.
Now I know someone from the so called master race will say " you can get this low entry Pc, upgrade this and that for this $$$ and bam... beter then PS4. Owned". Lol so silly and unfair
You can't bring your PC Box O' Parts into this conversation, as a even level playing field is needed.
I could go on and on but why bother.
Simple fact is PC vs Console is just silly. A wise man once said you need a PC roughly 2 times as powerful as a console to get same results. I know for sure he knows more then anyone here. And while the gap may have decreased somewhat, it still mostly remains true. Maybe now it's just 1.5 times, but still there nonetheless.
Everyone seems the need to asure themselves that the money they spent, be it PC parts or consoles, was worth it. And the best way to do so is to hate or rip apart the other options of gaming. Very sad imo
We know a GPU that cost as much as a console > Console. We also know you can't beat the PS4 at it's price point. Honestly this should be common knowledge by now imo
For some reason, the PC crowd doesn't understand console gamers. It's not that we are afraid of PC's, or don't understand them, or we're too poor lol. For many of us, console gaming is simple and able to fit into our lives. Some of us have only small amounts of time to game everyday. And I am not saying PC gaming is a lot of work, just more work then Console gaming. I have never had the audio stop and have to figure out why and fix it when console gaming. The same cannot be said for PC gaming
