I thought a real pc worth having for gaming was atleast 1200$. But both consules are almost as good as a pc. 120fps right?

A 3080 is 700 bucks
Will blow both consoles out of the water.
I have a 1660 ti which at least gets me sixty frames on any game i throw at it, jus waiting for a mobo.

I could spend another two years on last gen, theres really no reason for me to start any new games right now.

I'm gonna pass on both and get a ps4 when the price drops or buy used soon. I'm not very interested in 4k gaming just yet. I might pick up a 4k tele next year. My current TV still has some life left in it but its definitely reaching its end. That would be more for movies vs gaming anyways.

I don't really mind spending whatever I need to on this stuff cause I look at them like investments into my mental health and leisure time. I haven't really been out much this year and the way things are going that's not going to change. I rarely upgrade anything unless I need to. I dealt with a crappy mouse for forever until it finally died on me and I had no choice but to buy a new one. I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to upgrading anything as long as its working. I'm also super frugal so there's always wiggle room if I want to splurge or not. But with all the advancements happening atm its kind of hard not to want to. Like VR looks so fun but I can't justify a purchase like that yet :uhoh:

I've always been a Nintendo guy. MS and Sony always seem to be doing pretty much the same thing, consoles similar to each other that target a similar market. And none of the exclusives either has are anything I'm too familiar with for the most part. I'll check them out when they're old and the games are cheap. The newest systems I own of either are a 360 and a PS2, wouldn't have bought them as priced at launch. The PS2 I have was one someone was throwing out. They also had a PSX and a Sega Genesis. I don't have any cords or games for the Genesis though.

Yeah same here. Before I upgraded my last two TVs (one in each room) I had a couple of plasma TVs (which have been discontinued) and both were dying. And I still rode them out for like 2 years. One had a vertical pink line that was the length of the entire screen and the other had suffered burn-in.

My sound bars are also nearing ten years old but they still seem to be doing okay so for now I'm still sticking with them.

And I also really wanted to buy the PlayStation VR but when I started looking a couple years ago that shit was like $700 bucks

:notlikely:

Actually you can do it for under 700 nowadays. You just have to cheap out on certain parts, go with stock cooler/fans. Easy and affordable upgrades to make whenever. Budget processors have become pretty powerful, as well as gpus. You'd be able to play anything on medium settings at the very least (generally is what consoles play at) and high in some @ 1080p/60fps.

I put this together pretty fast as an example. This could be even cheaper but I went with reputable brands.

I want the HTC Vive Pro Eye system...its 1200 I think :lol: It should come down in price eventually. I'll probs skip on VR too. The longer I wait the better it'll be. Skyrim VR looks so fun though!

I too need a new speaker setup but I'm getting new headphones first which I desperately need for my music creation cause the ones I've had forever actually just broke down recently..I lose my hearing in an ear for weeks, it finally comes back and headphones go kaput, like why..

I also had a plasma do that too! Many lines and burn in but it was a champ :sadyes:

And yeah Cosmic, those plasmas looked great at first -- the picture quality was very deep and vivid, almost like a poor man's OLED at the time but little did we know that they were rampant with burn-in. In fact I think that was one of the primary reasons they discontinued them.

I agree, im not gonna buy either one. I have a great pc and that's about all someone needs. Most good PCs rn anyway probably wont get MUCH better in the following decades

I was going to pre-order the PS5.  But after remembering how underwhelming the PS4 release was I'm going to wait.  I still have a bunch of games I need to play on PS4 & Nintendo Switch.  Just my two cents.

Nah. My first PC I bought was a $700 prebuilt Alienware, I bought it with my saved up paper route money at the time.
You can buy cheap computer that have one or two good parts in them and then just upgrade later on! You can still play any game that consoles have plus download steam and have literal thousands of free games that you can download and have forever! Most are not worth playing because they are free but there are some really good ones like cs:go, dota, league of legends, smite, any indie game.

Another pro to PC gaming is that customization. You can customize your graphics settings in all PC games to match your computer specs.
Trust me guys, it's worth it to get a computer instead of a console. I guarantee that you will thank me later. Consoles are the past and cost to much money, like who tf still uses physical CD discs now adays?! Uninformed console players that's who. They literally make you PAY MORE MONEY just to use your own internet connection that you are already paying for so you can play multiplayer.... scummy. Spend more for prebuilt or build your own *very easily* for much much cheaper. Youtube tutorials, read websites, ask the community. I built my pc and build and resell computers for a living, if you need any help with it I'd be glad to help with what I can.

If you decide to join the PC Master Race then please remember to pray to your holy savior Gaben.

If I and a PC player were both dying and you could only choose one to live admit it you would save the PC player without even thinking twice

You think we are inferior beings

Also if you could have slaves you would have a console player as a slave

That's quite the collection of words to put in my mouth. I don't think console players are "inferior" to pc players. We use the term "console peasant" and "pc master race" because that is what it's called, it's slang, it's a joke. You'd understand if you were a pc guy.
