Therefore while PC is the master race, i feel that Xbox, and maybe Playstation (GGRRRRR!!!!!) can match up in durability with a PC. Especially since alot of custom made computers are poorly designed and tend to die early on.

Yeah, probably best not to go into the whole spec list, but its cost about $1000 and can run most games on ultra and do it with 60 fps plus. Not the benchmark games, mind you, but most games. PS2 in a bio-dome fight will make it crap it's pants on high, but meh, works.

Anyway, I say it doesn't cost $1500-$2500 to build a good gaming rig (for the upper end of that it better be damn good), and you say it does. Meh.

Tis true, though the ability to upgrade your rig is damn convenient, but, yes, those consoles last a damn long time.

This no one can argue with

However on that note I cannot help but wonder that since both Sony/Mircosoft have moved closer with PC tech in their consoles if soon console machines will be upgradable? People have done it (though illegally) and improved the current systems. It would be interesting to see what they could do

I doubt it would come to that though unless they came out with the parts themselves. Otherwise, what would be in it for them? They wouldn't be getting the money for the parts to upgrade them.

It would be nice though

No one is ever going to put a warranty on a console AND give you the ability to fuck with its innards. Just not going to happen.

I laugh at PC gamers, I always enjoy hearing them go on and on about building a PC for 1500, yet they keep adding and adding an extra 100 of crap and upgrades every few months to play the latest game from 2 months ago while I sit happily enjoying games on a 250 machine that doesn't need upgrading and doesn't need to spend an hour installing games.

The games in the end are exactly the same, your super mega dust collector does not improve the storyline of a game, and does not improve a game if it is crap and you'll still get the same churned out bullshit.

Yes, your a winner.

I'm definitely going for the PS4.

I've enjoying my Playstation+ subscription immensely with the free games, I enjoy the exclusive titles more and overall I like the mentality behind Sony better than Microsoft on this area.

In the end, this is like the Nintendo vs Sega debate in the 90's; Essentially both machines are better and worse than each other in various areas - It's solely down to personal taste.

---EDIT---

Regarding the PC issue, there's more to it than that though. I'm sure you know this, so I'll leave it be.

Myself I play certain genres on certain machines. Beat'em'ups, car racing and spectacle fighters I find best on a console, where I find that games such as RPG's, WoW style MMO's and First person shooters are better to play on a PC.

You will always find people who vigorously defend their platform (be it console or PC) but to claim that either is shit is a bit overdramatic. They have each their audience, who have each their focus in games.

How is it better on PC?, does the PC improve the story of Skyrim?
Does a PC make the CoD series any less shit?
Does a PC make WoW any less embarrassing to admit playing?

Ok a PC is better for RTS games, but that's really it

RTS i'm with you on. Skyrim.... well on PC you can mod the game. So many mods, so little time. That's really the only good thing PC has over some games on console is the ability to mod them.
