You can build a computer to max out Source for ~$350
And PCs are easily upgradable if built right.
Pic related- ~$400 decent computer. Not mine.

Some company is releasing a desktop that plays only steam games. It's known as the steambox but that;s not it's official name. It costs almost the same as a console and can be upgraded.

I know PLENTY about the Steam Box. It's going to be an Xi3 form factor machine (see pic) and will be able to run relatively simple games.

Steam sales dude. They're awesome. Crysis 1 and Crysis warhead were a £5 bundle when I got them and in the winter sales you could get a massive bundle of THQ games with both darksiders games, homefront, metro 2033 and a few other games all for just £20. Although games consoles are initially cheaper, PC is far cheaper in the long run if you buy a lot of games.   
   
That being said, the temptation of cheap steam games can be a real drain on your wallet since you just end up buying everything in sight.

You have to consider the fact that virtually everyone in the US already owns a computer. the cost of upgrading to a gaming computer is not that much (~150-250) which is the same price as a console. So even though ur paying 700+ for your gaming computer u needed a computer anyway so its not that much more. The same way people assume that you already have a tv when you buy a console, no one says, an xbox is 800 because u need the consol and the tv, its assumed you already have it.

And yes u can easily spend 5k on a gaming computer but that is just useless, so dont count that in ur argument.

the games are, if you know where to look.   
also you dont need to jailbreak a pc to play pirated games.

if you want to play games on the pc to it's full extend, you need to pay at the least 1000 if you build it yourself.

You can get also free games for xbox,ps3 and wii. Its not that hard to jailbreak them. And i think he was talking about buying a console or pc. And im 100% sure that a pc is more expensive than any console ;-)

Well its usually already built in I guess. It might have just been mine but my xbox 360 didnt have it built in ready.

And some PC's are cheap.

PC is by far the cheapest console ive ever played a game on. Steam makes games that cost 30 bucks only cost 5 bucks.

I think you mean top of the line rig, one that can run on xbox level performance will cost about $500
I have a $1200 rig with an i5 and Gigabyte 7950 graphics card. That's MORE than what I'll need in a few years

It's better because you can torrent games so that makes it less expensive in the long run.

What do you want to run? There are plenty of games you can run on insane settings for under $1,000.

I'm not saying i need one, i'm just stating that with the cost of parts and depending on whether you're building your own (by god i would hope someone would build their own) it'll run about $700 to get a machine that can run on insane Perhaps other places could be cheaper, but where i'm from there are next to no deals on computer ****, and the prices are only rising due to popularity

Sucks. In my state(USA), pc components are fairly cheap. Costs about 500 to make a good gaming rig.

For me, it goes like this: PCs have exchangeable parts for upgrades, as a gaming console it's pretty much eternal, and you can get games for 5-20 once their initial price goes down (or pirate). Consoles require complete replacement, have insanely expensive games, and often you're ****** if you break it.

Of course, other places probably vary. (Apparently Netherlands has issues where games are $80... after release)

Okay, say you buy a brand new 360 for $300 plus tax then you buy 4 new releases that year as well other games, a headset and batteries and other accessories. That's over $700 right there.

The PS3 is 7 years old. And you can still play games with good graphics.

You try to play a modern game on a 7 year old PC you would have to spend 100s of $ just to get the pc good enough to play it
