I hate consoles because I hate the garbage PC ports, I want PC developed games back that work out of the box. Its time for PC gaming to make a comeback and exactly what Chris Taylor is saying in the article.

$2000 for a gaming PC - you are WAAAAAY outta touch with reality.. thus the need to buy a $500 console. Good for you... it fits.

Vin and Doc are obviously console gamers, they wouldn't defend it like that if they weren't. Whats the matter did we hurt your feelings??? Back to your basements boys!!
Then don't buy them.

You call vin a child yet don't you see how pathetic your posts are?

Doc plays PC games with me all the time on Steam. At least, at the very least know what you are talking about.

Show me the proof that Doc and Vin live in a basement with their parents.

Vin and DD have to take that type of view, they're mods. Mods shouldn't show their biased side. If they hated consoles I'm pretty sure they wouldn't say it here because you need to be have a balanced opinion.

Try and disagree with someone else mailman. CaptnStubing is a good choice to start with.

Hatred towards another platform other than the one you own is just silly. At the end of the day we all get to play games on a preferred system or in some cases more than 1 system.

Consoles dying will never happen..Even if for some reason Sony did go under (which they won't) another company will come along and show off there new gaming system. Its like saying a Blu ray player will fail or a washing machine will fail...lol

There will always be gaming machines one way or another, for a platform to fail it would mean that all devs developing for that platform would have to fail which also wouldn't happen as most devs are cross platform.

Console gaming and PC gaming are at a very high point atm and all this BS talk of any platform dying really pisses me off...

The only people to blame for lack of quality games that use the potential of todays hardware are the Devs...but they have have a very valid reason for choosing consoles over PC when it comes to cross platform development and that is 'cost effectiveness'.

It's not all bad when brand new next gen consoles are released as it is then that the console ports will make more use of todays hardware, however after 3 or 4 years this console hardware won't do for the PC enthusiast that likes to upgrade every 6 months...

I was kidding about that... I know they don't. Some of it was humor. And while they don't I'm sure there are some people here that still do

I do my console gaming from under a over-pass. I steal my power and internet from a nearby 7Eleven.

Why do you need to spend $1100 for console ports??? lmao. Looks at my PC, looks at your PC... yup.
Of course I did. Bought it when it came out at Circuit City, came with the console, 20g HD and a game for $450. I bought a second game for $50, for a grand total of $500, which coincidentally is the same price as your single video card.

For a PC gaming elitist you aren't very elite if you have to wonder why I would own multiple high end video cards.

Much like you think it sucks to play games on a console, I think it sucks to play PC games like The Witcher 2, Rift, or even Crysis 2 on a single 480 given the settings I play with. You can laugh your ass off all you want, but I've owned your graphics card and it wasn't enough.
