    Although it was true that PC was the master race., this is no longer the case. I tried PC, but I had problems with multiplayer. People were using under-spec PCs or unreliable internet, and they were getting kicked out of dungeons and trials. I would much prefer playing on console because people only get kicked out if they have unreliable internet, and it happens rarely.

    The thing is that those prices on cosoles can be that "low" with that hardware because Microsoft and Sony take a percent when they sell games on their systems. Let's say they get 10$ of each game on full retail price on release, and as people get more games the more they recover for hardware and still make profit. Not to talk about paid online, subcription services, DLC, etc. For PC on the other hand you got software way cheaper and still be able to do other stuff like Linus said. Dont get me wrong Valve and other game software distributors still get their share, lower, but it's still there. Still intend on keeping my 9 years old Gaming PC at least for one more year.

    @Turtle Fan on pc the Xbox game pass is free for almost half a year if you are willing to do some hassle. Not only that! You could do something on pc that many call a glitch (but it really isn't) to claim all the Xbox game pass games forever (no piracy). So free Xbox game pass + being able to claim those games after the pass ended. And this is not even the best deal you could get on the pc. 👀

    it really makes me sad to see people still beating each other over the Console/PC thing. consoles are doing so great at delivering what they should deliver relative to their price tags. I have friends and family who cannot make sense of video settings in modern games. they absolutely have no idea what the hell Anti-Aliasing means and how a single toggle drastically impacts the performance of their games. so what's the point of them having a monster rig loaded with a 3080 when they can't even utilize it? IMO, the big difference is not in the machines themselves. but the difference lies in the people who are using them. in the end, it all boils down to one's knowledge about technical stuff. if you can safely overclock your HW and optimally set your games to give you every drop of FPS possible, then go for a PC. if not, then settle for a console and play without any hassles. just remember, a PC is not a gaming machine. it's far more than that. it's everything you ask it to be. but you must know how to talk to it. with the sheer amount of rendering power a 3080 gives you, you can earn back the money by freelancing with Illustrator or Blender. you can even learn Machine learning and Neural networks. hell, even mining Crypto. I mean whatever you want. put that power to some real use. and don't get mad over console prices being so cheaper than your single GPUs. remember consoles can't even run a calculator.

    Console loses and will continue to do so, generation after generation while they continue to cling too inferior input methods. It is not a debate that KB&M IS KING! If there was native support across the board, there would be a chance. Although how long will the Xbox PSU last? The one in my ONE X died with very little use, current PSU in my gaming PC i purchased rather along time ago, think 8800GTX SLI era... Just a wee bit longer lifespan than the craptastic one fitted into xbox.

    Try building the PC without used/second hand parts, it's just not going to be anywhere near possible. And the controller is just a joke. It would be more interesting to see how expensive it would be to actually match XSX performance (SSD vs SSD, CPU vs CPU, GPU vs GPU etc.) with brand new, off the shelf PC parts. PS. I'm just a gaming/tech enthusiast who sees value for all the platforms. Too old to care about any "master race" debate.. :)

    @Alt Acc you misunderstood me. Must be a language barrier. I said if you include a uhd blu-ray player (over $100) and a wireless series x controller ($50 to $60) it would make a PC equivalent well over $500.

I can't find one at msrp, I can't find one in my country for $500 bucks as well (they forgot to convert the currency so it is more like $640 in my country), and I can't find a Xbox that does not lock me out of playing online without paying $120 bucks. 🤷‍♂️

    @Alt Acc are you drunk!? Yes the series x is REALLY $500. If you can find a series x the msrp is $500 plus tax. No more. Unlike the new Nvidia GPUs that were a paper launch where they said, for example, the 3080 msrp was $699 but in reality it was over $800. And where the hell did I ever say a blu-ray drive costs $500!? I didn't. A blu-ray drive costs less than $50. A UHD blu-ray drive costs over $100. A SERIES X HAS A UHD BLU-RAY DRIVE, NOT A REGULAR BLU-RAY DRIVE. Again, you cannot build a new pc equivalents in hardware to the series x for under $1k.

  • Alt Acc

    Alt Acc

    Day ago

    @Jack Burton nothing much, it is just that the Xbox isn't really $500 bucks, it is advertised to be but in reality it isn't that cheap. So making a pc the same as a Xbox for $800 bucks would still be acceptable. Also, where tf does a basic blue ray drive cost $500?

  • Jack Burton

    @Alt Acc ok? What does that have to do with anything I was saying? You are arguing a different point. Regardless, to match exactly what you get with series x HARDWARE you are north if $1k, not $600 to $800. And for GAMES you get a pretty damn good deal with gamepass.

    Consoles aren't designed to generate profit. Almost every console player I know spends money to play online, and they pay subscription fees to rent games monthly. I spend on average $5 per game I purchase. I don't pay to play with friends. That's several hundred dollars per year alone. Over 7 years (if I remember the last console lifespan correctly) that's easily a great gaming PC. That doesn't include the stupid advertising on consoles. God do I HATE the Xbox One S I bought my now 4 year old son two years ago. I constantly feel like crap is being shoved in my face. My pc just fires up and we play. My son even prefers pc gaming because he sees the difference (both in FPS and the other stuff mentioned here).

    @Turtle Fan it's hard to understand what you type. I am saying a 5 year old GPU for PC is about as good as brand new GPU in consoles. Both are old GPUs. And on top there is great mouse and keyboard support on PC, some types of games aren't really out on consoles because almost nobody has mouse and keyboard on console. How many console games really have great support for mouse and keyboard? I would very few if any. On PC I can just plug in a console controller and use that. PC is more versatile.

    If you can't afford a mid range/high end PC sure go for the console nothing wrong with that. But PC still it a multi use piece of hardware and until the consoles do THAT they are still inferior to a PC. Also most who build their own pc know it's going to cost more than a console but we build it ourselves and that is part of the "pc master race" appeal. When I build a PC from the ground up I build it knowing it will last through multiple console generations so I save money regardless. I also save on games since there are so many different sales on steam/GOG/etc. Other nice thing is more COD kiddies play on the consoles so that keeps them away from the PC multiplayer games.

    Also don’t forget that it takes some hours to source out all the parts on eBay and actually building and calibrating your system. And your own time is also worth a certain amount of money. The actual task should be to pay someone else 500 dollars and make them build you a comparable system whilst still making profit for himself.

  • pigtailsboy

    I don't think it is a fair fight to begin with. We don't know the actual production cost of the console units. They're discounting the machines at market and making it up in other things like subscriptions and game purchases. You pay for a computer and you pay for it. Where PC gaming has it's returns though is in it's longevity, upgradeability, modability, surplus of markets and depreciation and sales of software. Xbox is still a close platform for most users and given enough time everything and it's mother comes to the PC platform. It might need to be hacked, rebuilt or stolen but it will come... The cost of hardware though is inconsequential, and certainly when the consoles are sold at a loss and produced in a more vertical fashion.

    Yet again, claims that there could be a PC for as cheap as console, and you just don't. Claims wrong, wrong, and wrong again throughout the history of these experiments. PC's can always be built up to be more powerful.... But at what cost? Expect to spend at least a thou, if not three thou for a PC to be a gaming PC to out do consoles, and those costs are severely different. AND NEVER get a PC from DIGITAL STORM. EVER!

    @Steven pineda obviously, but to achieve the level over the console, it's always going to cost more. It costs more even for it to reach the same balance of cost vs gaming options. Granted it also means you have less censorship that can stop you from doing what you want to do. I'm just tired of all the click bait videos that say they can build a console's worth of power for the same price. They always cop out with 'close enough' and it's really not. With the fact I got burned so bad putting thousands into a PC from Digital Storm and time after time over multiple years they never got it right to the point something bad in my life had me give up on it for a few months, they could finally blame the problem on me and so I'm stuck with it. With a game console, you simply ship it back and it's their problem till they get it right, and down the line if you got screwed, at least it was only for about 600 bucks. This PC cost me thousands and even more as I found out Digital Storm was hooking up my liquid pump to a fan controller all along with both machines and they charged me for the processor their F up burnt out. Consoles F up that hard, they'd be more liable for it and can't explain it away as something like, some hardware or another's fault. Digital Storm left a real sour taste in where PC builders have gone, and with my hands and the likes I just can't do such an all out rig on my own anymore. Also tired of the clowns who keep saying I should just build my own when I just no longer can and I don't see them all building their own cars or something else that they drive to work in or crafting their own shoes. You shouldn't have to build it yourself just to get something that works. You should get what you paid for, and Digital Storm did not accomplish, and the cost to risk ratio for gaming PC's in general as opposed to a console that a company is more liable for making work as mass assembly line units, it just feels better to largely go back to console gaming in many cases. If it doesn't work on a console, someone's ass is on the line to be liable, hardware or software. Meanwhile due to all the variable build types of a PC, companies get away with murder often blaming their mistakes on certain hardware not working with it or the other way around. Sorry for the rant, and I paid massive for a major rig. Then more thinking it couldn't keep going wrong. For the amount I paid into the PC I could've gotten multiples of every console and handhelds that were current at the time. I still need to use a PC, and trying to get the most out of my Digital Storm leftovers, but I doubt I'll ever go into such a high end rig ever again, and certainly not from Digital Storm. It still burns my ass that Linus here always seems to NEVER be a secret shopper against Digital Storm. Probably because they keep sending him free $#!+.

    @Turtle Fan , online play as in Xbox Live Gold which is $60/yr (for now). Over 5-7 years that's $300-$420 on top of the $500 you pay for the system. $800-$920 is a fairer comparison for anyone interested in playing games online.

    @Christian Bateman sorry for interrupting the conversation, but the Xbox controllers aren't really $50. They just make you pay that if you want to buy a separate spare one. 😔 On the Xbox K&M are not that great compatible with most games, yet another Xbox con. 😔 So just get a 20$ pc m&k *but* just knock notting of the price for the Xbox. then just get the *more expensive* motherboard, but keep the *cheaper* ram. Trust me, it is fast enough, I work in IT. Calculate it for me, if it is *under* $800 bucks then there is no way I am getting a Xbox. If it's over, then maybe. Why 800? The forced costs you need to pay when buying a Xbox.. 👍💯

    @Christian Bateman You could get cheaper ram for $25 (ecc server ram), motherboard can be $40 HP Z one. The controller is optional. You can also go to a shop to buy pc parts.
