If you're paying $1500 for a PC, you're either doing it wrong or doing it with pleasure. You can get a perfectly fine gaming PC for much less than that, which means that either you're stupid to pay that much, or you're an enthusiast to whom it's worth the price.
Also, as you already seem to know the answer to your question, this seems like another provocation using the (incomplete) price argument. Your argument is incomplete because it only takes into account the initial cost, whereas the whole thing is actually much more complicated than that. My point? Your price comparison is, in my opinion, pretty much useless because it's so naive, so it doesn't make much sense to even make the comparison.
I ll bite this bait...
You dont want your PC hooked up to your liveing room TV, like you could with a console.
So you d need a 4k monitor.
4k monitor about 300-500$.
Nvidia 1070 to run high-very high settings in tomb raider @4k = 450$
Intel i7-6700k about 350$
LGA 1151 motherboard 100$
ram,mouse,keyboard,case,psu,cpu cooler,hdd,blu-ray drive,speakers,..... and windows 10.
= probably over 1500$ right?
But hey atleast it can do native 4k then.
"You can get a perfectly fine gaming PC for much less than that, which means that either you're stupid to pay that much, or you're an enthusiast to whom it's worth the price."
Perfectly fine isnt the point, the point was doing it better than the PS4 pro.
By doing it better I assumed you ment "real" 4k natively.
To do that you ll need a expensive PC.
My point was the PS4 pro for 399$ does ALOT for its price.
