The reason consoles are catching up to the speed of PCs is because they basically are PCs now (they're using a lot of PC hardware).

Despite that, it's still fairly easy to build a computer that's much faster than a console. Just don't be one of those guys that spend $200 on a PC case, when a ~$30 one can do the same job. The same goes for a lot of other parts that people spend too much money on.

I don't see how any of these specs make the games more fun...

Yeah...pc gamers really need to get over it. With the next gen consoles coming out they can produce graphics at a very high level and you can preach to me that pcs are better...maybe. But the ps4 is more powerful than all the computer in my house and you would have to but a 2000 dollar gaming computer to compete. You could build one yourself for around 7-8 hundred dollars...But. PS4 is gonna be 400 dollars and honestly, how much more do you want? The realism they can get is already ******* ridiculous some why the hell would I pay another 300 hundred or so dollars on something that's "better".

Its true that you can't build a PC that is as capable as the PS4 for the same price. But no it doesn't cost 2000 dollars. 2k gaming PC's are a thing of the past. Like 2007. Computer hardware is getting cheaper. Overclocking is becoming more popular and easier to do.

And consoles aren't much cheaper either. Remember when i said PC gaming has gotten cheaper? Well console gaming is getting more expensive. The original Xbox cost $299 at launch. As did the Ps2 with its price tag at $299. Not to mention when i got my Xbox it came with a few games. Games i still play to this day. The 360 came with Bejeweled. That is nothing more then fodder for ones grandmother. My Xbox came with Jet Set Radio Fusion. A full fledged game. It also came with a racing game. I remember getting 2 games bundled with the PS2. One of which was Star Wars Battlefront.

Lets not forget that PC's have a multitude of options for cheap and or free gaming. Free to play games,old games, mods, indie games, and steam sales. And these games are all full fledged games. There not half assed. I'm currently playing "Soldier Front 2". It cost absolutely nothing, Earlier i was playing "Heroes and Generals" which is also free. I never got anything for free when i was a console gamer.

PC gaming is getting cheaper. then it was 8 years ago. Console gaming is doing the reverse. Lets do some math. The ps4 is going to cost $400 at launch. Its online will cost $60 a year roughly. The ps3 has a 7 year cycle its running on. So if the PS4 is similar then it costs $420 for those 7 years. Chances are you will buy at least 3 AAA games a year. So that's $180 a year for 7 years. So that's an additional $1260. Add an extra $30 a year for DLC. And that's on the low spectrum. I'm sure anyone who can rightly call themselves a "Gamer" buys more.

So far were up to $2500 for a seven year cycle. Console gaming is not any cheaper then PC gaming. In fact its worse. Your spending $357 a year for gaming on a Ps4.

but remember, a titan costs just under £900, and a 780 is around £550!

but yes, no more ****** ports

umm. Pc may have more power, but they only have fps and strategy games.
No crash bandicoots and tekkens.
#77 to #75 - 4chan refugee (06/15/2013) [-]
emulators, bro. You can play all that. PC's have virtually every game that a console has, plus thousands of FREE to play games that have better gameplay and graphics as pay per title games anyway. Just saying.

Well if you go with the pricing of a gtx titan, then its somewhere around $1000-1300 for these graphics cards alone on new egg and similar sites. I think ill stick with the $400 ps4.

Consoles are all the running the same hardware, giving them insane amounts of optimization, making the gap much less then it actually appears when it comes to actually playing the game.

All the PC gamers get so butthurt about there being a new console coming out, it's like they need the attention.

LUk aT ME MA PEESEE IS BETTAR HURR
Red thumbs inbound.
#83 to #78 - 4chan refugee (06/15/2013) [-]
It's not quite butthurt, just annoyed because kids think that the consoles are breakthrough. It's one of those "roll your eyes" things. Everytime a console comes out it has far less capabilities, far less games, way worse hardware and every single time people talk about how it's catching up. PC's ARE better, but they are more expensive, so consoles stay viable to the majority of the market. The problem is that console gamers actually think that consoles are better, when in every aspect of gaming, they aren't.

Not Sure I want to pay two and a half times as much for a video card alone, but i guess that makes me a poorfag

if you compare for example the PS2's specs with the specs of PCs in the market when it was released (2000) you'll see that the PS2 was pretty much a calculator, but the reason why it could play games fairly well it's because it was a GAMING console, a hardware meant JUST for gaming, most PCs today can't emulate well that thing even though it had a less than 300MHz processor, sometimes with consoles it's not about how many GFLOPS you have but how well you use them.

What are you talking about my PS2 emulator works perfectly fine, the problem isn't in the hardware but the programming; cross platform porting is difficult to do and even harder to optimise to make full use of the PC's power.

But, as you see, the PC GPU will continue in a linear expansion. Consoles never gets upgraded, and therefore they'll only get better when a new console is released. That means that the console's hardware will have no increase, whilst the computer technology will continuously become better.   
2 years after he release of the PS4 we'll be at the exact same point, as we were in 2012 (maybe with an even greater difference)   
Consoles aren't catching up, and they never will. Console hardware is outdated before it even make it to production. I reckon that we'll see one more generation of  consoles - then people realise how bad the platform is...

You probably didnt catch it, but op shares your point.
Hes like "wow! consoles are only 2.5* slower than pcs! How very impressive"
Hes sarcastic

>implying that a single titan our-performs the 7970 or even the 680 in 95% of all rigs.

Inb4: hurr durr it's best graphics card! - do some research, even Nvidia advises most consumers against buying one.
User avatar #16 to #13 - nexu (06/15/2013) [-]
It does outperform, although the 780 would be the gaming card, which has a little less power but costs a fair bit less. In most games out today the performance wont be worth it because cards like the 7970 and 680 are capable of running everything at 1080p 60fps. There would however be a tangible difference if you were running 1440p and/or multiple monitors, or doing something other than gaming and you needed actually needed the power of a titan.
