    I do both because I'm greedy and want all the games. PC technically has "better graphics +fps" if you can be bothered to shell out the slightly higher one time cost to get such a machine, but mainly PC just has so many cool exclusive games that just wouldn't work on a console.

    Meanwhile consoles are just easier to set up and use. You can throw it up on a big telly without much fiddling, the console directs you very well on where to buy games for download whereas on PC you'll have to download something like steam or, dare I say it, origin. Consoles get some good exclusives as well. The PS4 ones coming out recently are looking very spicy. Shame I have an Xbox One, really.

    PC for games I'm serious about when I have the choice between PC and console. But I have a PS4 for a bunch of console only games, mostly Japanese import stuff. And there are a bunch of fun games on portable consoles and mobile phones as well.

    Yeah issue with shopping around for PC parts is you've then gotta build the damn thing and that's just effort innit. I use a relatively expensive "gaming" laptop atm that runs the stuff I really wanna play well enough for the mo. Might go all out on a proper desktop setup over the summer when I've got time to work out what stuff I actually need and learn how to put it together.

    Console. Just what I'm used to. And fewer buttons is less confusing
    Do play the odd PC game though and would consider PC games with a console controller, especially with PC having a bigger variety of games. For now though that's just something I'm baring in mind. I'm not exactly a huge gamer- tend to just stick to one game at a time.

    How about you?

    PC, Was on xbox 360 like a year and a half ago but everyone went to ps4 and i was interested in playing CSGO so I went to that, and I understand using a mouse and keyboard might be more daunting for learning new control schemes especially for games with really crap ones but you can get used to it rather quickly.

    PC because it is absolutely better in almost every way.

    I own a PS4 which I don't play games on, normally use it for Netflix and YouTube when I can' be arsed to move from my bed to the desk.

    I also play FIFA on it when friends come round because every sports game I have played on PC has been a terrible, half arsed port that I' not going to pay any significant amount of money for...

    Both. I need to play all the exclusives.

    Pc is better for the most part, but demon's souls ans bloodborne are on console, although im aware that the latter now has an emulator.

    I like the ps4 a lot.

    My xbox one was used for Halo and pretty much gathers dust.

    Getting a switch in 3 months for breath of the wild and portable dark souls remastered.

    No point restricting myself to one platform.

    PC all the way, it is just so much better for controls and can be upgraded easily.

    I have never owned a pc so don’t know what it’s like to play games on it. Have only used consoles till now and I currently own a ps4. Playing games in the couch in front of the tv is definitely a huge plus, not to mention the exclusives like horizon and uncharted. Also the ps4 is much cheaper than building a decent gaming pc that should also function as a computer.

    PC because i can pirate games. Also can play them on better graphics and higher framerates so why not. I own both and only really play on my PS4 if one of my friends want to play gta or when a ps4 exclusive title is released.

    Are these acquired from the PlayStation Store? If so, are they free of charge?
