    Are these acquired from the PlayStation Store? If so, are they free of charge?
    They can be, although many times there's a physical release as well. No, not free of charge, they still cost the same as regular games. When I said imports, I mean official imports that are licensed and translated (usually Japanese audio with English subs), not simply buying the Japanese version of the game. Although I'm aware that can be done as well. There's a ton of exclusive stuff that sometimes makes it to PC but usually is PS4 exclusive.

    I play on PC because I can switch to internet surfing anytime. Sitting in front of the TV is just boring for me.

    Currently play on console because it's just so much easier to hop in and out of a game whilst doing things on TSR and MSc work. I'd much prefer to game on a PC though and I have quite the steam library built up to PC game when I have the time

    PCMR because it's objectively better and isn't harmful to the consumers through platform exclusivity like consoles are

    Both. I usually get games on Steam for PC, usually like platformers or things like Skyrim and ARK.
    However, I like console a lot as well.. I prefer shooters on there or "games that fit better on console", e.g. Monster Hunter World or Warframe. Sad thing is that not all games are on XB1 though.. Should get a PS someday :'D

    Consoles - the games available are just better imo. I can also play from the comfort of my bed, whereas I'd have to be sitting up all the time when playing PC games.

    Fair enough, you should always just go with the platform your friends are on, on pc its easier to make friends in my experience at least

    I HAD both PC and PS4

    Sold the PC for a thrust master steering wheel aha.
    My reasons are:
    (Note:I had an amd fx-8350 and gtx 1060 build and I could generally play 1080p with a strong frame rate, often 60+fps. )

    -The PC community is too serious and way to toxic. Popular game? Toxic. Good game? Toxic.
    -Racing games were horrible and dead. Like hardly anyone online. Well except Euro truck simulator, which actually was quite enjoyable but to bad....
    -I have no friends. Yeahhh I reckon this pushed me away from PC a lot. I had about 20+ friends on Steam, but they were the weird people in my year that plays games like League of Legends, DOTA, and stuff. Super antisocial and didn't really want to carry on a convo when I popped up, so I just deleted them.
    -CSGO. Good lord, this was a game I really wanted to play before I realised the PC community ****ed it up completely, plus the devs have crap Anti-cheat. Oh and it was another game that needed friends to form squads for competitive, but I guess i learnt new words such as Cyka and Ruski.

    I couldn't care less about graphics at all. 4k means nothing to me; I still have a PS2 and before revising for GCSE's I was playing Spyro: A heroes tail. **** me what a game.

    Anyways, PS4 was where most my closest friends were, we had common favourite games, they were really fun. Sadly, they were pretty bad, but this just made everything so funny, especially GTA V and heists omgggg the hours pumped into that. Plus matchmaking was quick, and there was actually a solid amount of people playing each game. Racing games were actually alive. Exclusives were too good. Ok I have written too much and need to revise.

    I play Playstation and I do so because it makes sense to me as I've played all the PS consoles since I was young. I play some games on my laptop but much prefer a console! PS have VR now which is a new dimension!

    Not to start the whole console/pc debate up, but you can hook up a controller and set steam to launch in Big Picture mode and game from the bed exactly like you would with a console. That's how I game most of the time now.
