    Default As a PC gamer, I am realizing the benefits of consoles.

    Consoles just receive significantly more support from developers on regards to triple A titles. Also, most of my friends play on consoles than PC which makes it boring for me to play on the PC side.


    Sigh....

    The only benefits I see with consoles is that you can run any game for the coming 4-5 years at least.

    Downside is that at the end of that lifecycle, you're running games at about 2FPS.

    The only benefit of consoles are console exclusive games.

    Consoles are more common. Honestly out of everyone I know I have one friend that is in to pc gaming, everyone else is either team PlayStation or Microsoft.

    Consoles get more updates sure.

    Unfortunately, they call it DLC over there, and charge money for it.
    On nights like tonight when no one's around, I turn off the lights, and I float off the ground.

    And I smile like I used to when you were around.

    can't say i really care about either of those things too much.

    what does matter is that pc games are forever, and modding. also they're cheaper.

    I remember somewhere here someone posted the difference in sales prices for Sleeping Dogs and of the 3 platforms it was available on, PC was the cheapest, but PS+ users got that game for free (along with many others).

    That small sub you pay for PS+ more than pays for any sale you could get on a game.

    People mod console games too. Been doing it for a while actually.

    you can buy sleeping dogs on the steam sale for like five dollars, can't you. that's already cheaper than ps+ right there, and unlike ps+, it's not a shitty subscription. those 15 dollars a month or however much it is adds up if yr a poor student like me.
