Pc Gaming Vs. Console
Debate Rounds (5)
-> Pc Games are generally Cheaper
-> You also have a lot more customizing options.
1) Console games have better and more accessible controls
2)Consoles have a wider variety of available games to play than pcs
Xbox 360 $29.99-$79.99
2) PC's also are More Reliable then Consoles
1) Generally Pc games are designed to accommodate keyboard and mouse controls unlike their console counterparts. Although it possible to attach controllers to a pc for some games, that is an added accessory one does not normally start with. As such, the controls can tend to be a bit stiff in the case of the key board or too loose in terms of the mouse. Controls can make or break a game and when it comes to consoles the controls are more often than not easier to deal with than those found on a pc. This is because they are designed to fit an actual controller created for the game system.
2) Main console systems have a lot more variety of games than pcs. Consoles are what main stream gamers generally ply on and as such the main gaming market is geared towards them. As a result a greater production of games is put out for console systems than for pcs. Furthermore there are multiple game consoles available on the market, such as the Ps3, Xbox 360 and the Wii, and each one has its own strengths and/or gimmicks. Thus, game designers are give a greater outlet to produce their games for on consoles than they are for pcs.
Most people will agree that First person shooter's are better also RTS games are also Part of that group
Pc's have a Bigger Variety of games then each Individual System all together they have more but you would need to
buy all the system's to accommodate that.
Pc's can be more powerful then any system Reaching a GPU of 1Ghz While the most powerful console the PS3 only gets 550 Mhz thats almost twice the amount.
Pc's are more reliable they won't break as often and when they do break you can fix the part that is broken while if the console break's you have to pay to get the whole thing fixed or buy a new one.
Additionally when it comes to pricing the most expensive system at the moment, the PS3, will cost about $250 with the average game costing $60. Now in comparison a good quality gaming pc, built to last a good number of years, will roughly cost you $1000-$1200. That price is well beyond what one would pay for a console and quite a number of games just to obtain the pc itself sans any games to play on it.
I would also like to point out that though the PC may have more variety of games available than one particular console, the consoles themselves have a greater variety of game genres which the pc can not play at all. All three main console systems (PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii) have accessibility to motion sensor controlled games which the pc has no access too. As such consoles can provide games which involve dancing, fitness or swordplay.
Also PC's have the ability to buy almost any game as they come out online so that all you have to do is download it and play you never have to leave your house. While systems have this ability it is only for older games that were for older systems.
In Comparison for the best selling games for consoles and PC's in 2010 the best selling console only game was
NCAA Football '11 Selling 692,000. While the PC's best selling game was
Starcraft II Selling 721,000 Copies
The 2011 Games Market Revenue Report by Newzoo Show's a rapid decline for Consoles while PC's is Climbing
Consoles 2009-$13,626 2010-$9,932 2011-$8,009
Pc's 2009-$8,910 2010-$10,807 2011-$11,575
In conclusion i Believe that Pc Gaming is not only superior to console gaming not only that fans are starting to agree.
Pc's are more reliable, more powerful, easily upgraded, Games are cheaper on average, plus their is always so much more you can do on a PC then a console
