Most console games run at 30fps. Try playing CS at 30 FPS and feel what aiming is like. Like I said, game consoles feature outdated hardware with most games looking not as good as their PC counterparts.
The thing is, people want the best graphics and you will always get those on a PC. Problem for consoles is that in the first couple of years of their life, they might be able to compete with PC, but after that, to achieve the highest quality, a PC is needed.
You don't have to necessarily update your PC every few years if you make the right choices.
Still getting a PS4 for 400 or whatever, you might as well get a high spec PC which would cost what you would usually pay for a PC but say with the added PS4 price leading to imo, what is a far better investment.
not a truth. i need to upgrade my computer after 5 years. before dunno june 2012 almost every game was running on my comp on very high/high graphic options. if you know what i worth buying, you dont need to change computer every 2 years.
the big plus of consoles was you buy it and you can be sure to play with it without a new console for many years..
and NOW they want to cut that by bringing a new version out every 2 years or so.
so now i can choose between a pc and buying a new console... and then everybody who is smart is going for the pc because pcs are open and you can do everything with them... with consoles you cant do shit just plug and play.
You don't really have eSports experience if you don't have a mouse nor keyboard. Just imagine playing Cs, Starcraft or DotA on Playstation. Hilariously boring.
Every new desktop PC is atleast as good as the PS4.
mouse/keyboard > gamepad, always was and always will be.
console is fun but not competitive and shooters feel shit on console.
and how do you want to properly play RTS games like sc2 on console? not possible with the current generation of gamepads.
hell, even MMOs like WoW where you have 50+ keybinds are not possible to play on console without decreasing game complexity a lot.
Well first of all there is no such a thing as "End Of PC Gaming". Even though Playstation's architecture is pretty much identical compared to PC's, there is no reason to rush in conclusions.
To clarify what PC architeture means, think of x86. What x86 is ? Basically it's an instruction set used by developers to create the everyday programs we use, games etc. So, to start with, it will be easier for developers to make their games both PS & PC compatible without changing thousands of code lines.
PlayStation will be an 8-core AMD system with 8GB DDR5 RAM/VRAM and an AMD Radeon GPU. Well it's enough to play any game until now. I think most of you agree. Thing is that PC's have the ability to upgrade themselves, PlayStation 4 ? Won't happen. PC's will always be stronger & faster than any console. But that's not the case here.
Games being developed for a particular set of hardware helps developers to know exactly how it will perform. So in matter of graphics, yeah the PlayStation 4 will have amazing graphics - look at Unreal Engine 4 or the Deep Down trailer (the one with the dragon).
If you ask me what i like most i would definitely say PC. On the other hand a high end PC - lets say capable of playing Crysis 3 using Ultra High settings - costs at least 2.000 euros/dollars. Playstation's 4 price ? More or less 500 dollars. And guess what, it can deliver high end graphics similar to the ones we get to our own PC's.
You can build a PC with a PS4-like hardware (8-core AMD cpu, 8 gigs ram, 1.8 TFlops GPu - Radeon HD 7850) for about the same money. I've built one about a month ago for my friend.
When you say: Games being developed for a particular set of hardware helps developers to know exactly how it will perform.
it actually means now that games will be developed for the PC-like components, so it doesn't matter anymore.
