Neither offered me much to make me want to purchase a console when my PC will give me maximum control over my gaming. For the price, I can wait a few years and purchase more ram and a gpu that will blow away what these machines will have. Was much more of a console gamer until recently. Can't justify it anymore.
^ never really liked PC gaming. The only game I played on there was RuneScape lol
Basically what are the pros of the pc over console?
The pros? Game modability (I think I've spent more time tinkering with Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3 & New Vegas than actually playing them), summer sales, humble bundles, precision (nothing beats the mouse & keyboard), options (use gamepads if you want, hook the PC up to your LCD/Plasma/Whatever, use wireless equipment etc.), upgradeability, http://www.gog.com/. That's just off the top of my noggin'.
I guess they just like having huge, gaping bullet holes in their feet. Their anti-consumer policies will bite them in the ass despite throwing moneyhats at publishers for (timed) exclusives. Also, you're right with regard to sales. I reckon it'll be fun to revisit this thread post-2013 holiday season, not to mention the rage from the dim-witted, Halo-CoD-Madden bros who failed to keep up with the news regarding their spanking, new big-brother boxes. Good day to you too.
Btw... here's an example of a Humble Bundle I bought for$10.
I'm def done with call of duty now, it's so plain it's not even a real battle. After seeing BF4 I'm so stoked.
