    a pc does not need to be upgraded all the time its purely down to the individuals preferance...but at least with a pc you can mould it to your needs unlike a console you have to replace the whole thing if and when a better console gets released
    also i`ve never suffered from RROD or had to send my psu back because it was recalled,
    one of my nephews had to return 3 ps3`s until he got one that actually worked properly,his bro returned his xbox 360 twice and chances are you end up with a secondhand or refurbished console replacement

    1080P with 2xAA and 16xAF, M/K, exclusives. Upgradeable HW is nonsense, it wouldn't work. We have upgradeable PCs.

    Solid 30 fps wouldn't bother me. They could easily make the next gen to run at around 45fps solid, that would do.

    You are crazy!!!!!!!!! 30FPS damages the eyes.

    Nothing, consoles will always be the PC's spoilt retarded little brother.

    Reasons 1/3 with a mandatory solid 60fps (forced by MS/Sony) and a proper web browser that get's updated. Upgradable hardware (bar the HDD) isn't required.

    Soon as that happens i'll got back to consoles.

    Solid? No it's not solid. Look at Crysis 2 and Bulletstorm on sh!tbox, they run under 25 fps.
    But, but, PS3 is more sh!tty with outdated G70 and 256 VRAM :eyebrows:
    GT5, japanese exclusive sh!t, can't give a constant 60 fps framerate, because.... because it's a sh!tty platform.

    BTW, console sh!t(more of them) runs on sub-HD resolutions, I mean resolution like 540p :eyebrows:

    Outdated piece of Sh!t :nerd:

    The day i stop playing on PC it's because 100% of our games has been consolized.
    Even if consoles become what other said here you could never tweak drivers and .ini files and mod games.

    Steam did it for me! ;)
    These days, I only play older games like UT3 on the PC, but when I feel the urge to play a new game, I use the PS3. :)
    That way, I know that I can sell a used game later, if the appeal starts to fade.

    I already own all three major consoles (PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii) for their exclusives but as has happened for the last two generations I usually find that I buy fewer PC games and more consoles during the first few years of their lives. Once the console hardware starts to show its age, usually after two or three years, then I switch to buying more and more multiformat games on the PC.

    So once the new Xbox, PS and Wii U are out then I can see the excitement of my new toys causing me to lose some interest in my PC other than its own exclusives before the cycle starts all over again.

    I do wish I could just stick to one format or even one console + a PC for gaming but I love games so I don't like to miss out on the Forza Motorsports, Zeldas, God of Wars and Uncharteds that the consoles get as there isn't anything like them on the PC. (Well, Darksiders came close to being a Zelda equivalent I guess but wasn't quite as good)

    Read before you reply. I didn't say current consoles run solid 30fps. I would take that in the next gen consoles though, no problem. Alongside all the other things I posted.
