PC Vs Console Gaming, Which Is Best For You? by khalhokage(m): 12:48pm On Jun 01, 2020
Depends on your pocket and how much you're able to or willing to tinker with software to get it to work.

With game consoles like PlayStation, Xbox or Nintendo Switch they're cheaper than gaming PCs of the same power and much easier to use, but their only use is for gaming and media viewing.

With PCs if you can afford powerful setups you will get better graphics and performance and games are also cheaper to buy for PCs than consoles even taking pirated games into account, but gaming on PCs can also be stressful, especially for people who aren't technologically proficient.

For example you have to know how to balance performance and graphics of the games you play while with consoles you just plug and play because the games have already been optimised for the hardware.

Then there's also the issue of games not working, this is an issue especially for people who pirate games, you could buy or download a game then after installation it won't work, you now have the choice of either tinkering with a lot of software or giving up on the game.


So in the end it's your choice.

In my opinion, PC gaming is better only if you have the money to spend on good PC hardware and you're able to find your way around the occasional software issues.

Consoles are better if you have a limited budget and would rather not have to tinker with settings but games are more expensive.
