when i said costs about 4 times as much i was over exaggerating, maybe like twice as much money, i do like pc's alot, but to play shooters i prefer consoles, there just better, but for rts's the pc is alot better, and for the pc you have to upgarde like every 3 years, to keep up with the games,( if you want them tot un high) however with the 360 you can play high quality games for like 4 years maybe even more.

Last thing I'm gonna say on the whole matter is how PCs are technically far superior to consoles in terms of FPS. On a console, you're limited by the max scroll speed on the analogue sticks, and perfectly fluid motion on the sticks is a requirement, but is actually pretty hard to get used to. On a PC though, you're turning speed is only limited by how fast and how far you move your hand. Sniping on a console is stupidly hard and fiddly - do it on a pc and it's no problem at all.

actually I have to disagree, I can't for the life of me play an FPS on PC I find a mouse inaccurate, slow, harder to aim with and just generally uncomfortable, a PC's only place is for RTS games (which consoles can do just as well anyway now), on the 360 (and a realistic game) I can zoom and snipe someone running with a perfect headshot with 1 round in less than a second, less then half a second in some situations (yes I know, a little bragging but thats what everyone does), on a PC, i'd be lucky to shoot somone after 10 seconds with the mouse moving all over the place.

OK as I said before I choose PS3 but could you all just stop arguing with the PC gamers. You can't win. A PC will always and I mean always be more capable of playing games than a console. What the hell do you think they make the console games on? Anyone who is supporting the PC side of this argument can't lose. Its a fact, sorry.

PS3 rocks, peace out

The PC is the dominant Machine technology wise and that makes it superior. the games is mere opinion and there's be no point argueing about if FPS are better on PC than on console. PLease Remember the thread name guys PS3 Vs. 360, not PC kicks dick. I'd prefer to keep this thread true to the original post.

Abput the PS3 being harder to code for, It is true it is harder to code for but take GTA IV, it was harder to code for on PS3 so they didn't use the full potential and it still looked better than the 360 (360 has brighter colours, PS3 has better shadowing and more realistic lighting effects) sooner or later, as happens with everything, programming for PS3 will become easier and there will be a huge increase in performance and visuals then...

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Please have something in your posts that relate to the thread itself and try and stop this tangent of PCs....

I have to go with the PS3, mostly because of the exclusives that were slotted for it including God of War 3 and Gran Turismo. Though on the line of Blue Ray, the one thing I havent seen people talk about here is that if you actually have a GOOD sound system, the uncompressed sound that is taking up most of the space on that disc is beautiful.
