View Full Version : PC or Console?

Id have to vote console because, even though you can do alot more with PCs, you can't take it over to a friends house very easily which is what I did with my DC every weekend. Then you have to factor in the price too.

I used to believe pc was the best because you could get away with much more, but that gate is closing rapidly and computer games are way to buggy because everyone has a different kind of computer not gonna happen with the xbox. PRO console all the way

Computers are really cool too though.

If you could program on an xbox I would have no reason for a computer and well the internet too.:D

The Only Console EVER That Can Even Hang With a PC Is The XBOX....
I Will always Have My PC But My XBOX will never be far behind...
It Will Rule My Livingroom, It Will Rule All CONSOLES!

pc by far becuase keyboard has more buttons therefor u can do more things. also computers can be updated. but if u dont have the cash to get a computer u cant get any new games. This is y im buying an xbox. games will never need anything the xbox dosnt already have. so i guess im kinda undecided.

PC-install...wait...wait....restart comp.
open...load....load...load...select mission/level....load....load....load....play level..comp freezes...restart...repeat.
1 month later-wait for 400 minutes in line at fileplanet to D/L a patch that fixes mistakes of lazy programmers

see where I'm getting at?

maybe I'm exxagerating a bit...but still....consoles are there so u can sit down and play without worryin about bugs or freezing...idunno..maybe its cuz my comp sucks:confused:

Even though it's not as fast, or the graphics arn't as good, nothing can beat the feel of a laptop on your lap. my vote's for the pc.

id pick a pc anyday, even over xbox. Theres so much more u can do with a computer. computers are faster! if i had a grand id get a computer instead of an xbox. but i dont so im just getting a "mini computer", xbox. Nothing is as good as a keyboard and mouse when it comes to first person shooters. and thats what alot of games are. oh well!

for best computers goto: www.alienware.com

alienware are the coolest looking PC's, but certainly not the best performance wise. If you want a really awesome computer, buy the parts yourself and make it yourself. Oh and always go AMD, and buy a GF3. :D

i just love playing on a 40 inch Mitsubishi monitor with the sound through my home theatre.....

I prefer console. But, whatever it takes to smack the $hit out of FuNiOnZ in ANY fps game is ok with me.

You're goin down dude!

All I have right now is a PC and games to go with it. I was totally against coonsoles until I heard about Xbox. As of November 15 console will be my choice.

I love pc's but the games are getting ruff in terms of hardware support.

I posted this a while back about wwII online it was one of the deciding factors in my voting for a console over a pc

"any pc gamers out there buy wwII online? man what a night mare. that game is the poster child for why the xbox is a great idea. I reloaded my os installed the cpu drivers, mother board drivers, tweaked any possible setting I could find and finally flashed my bios to get it to work. "

"I just want to buy a game and have it work. one cpu, video and sound card to program for should do it. XBOX!!!!!!!"

pc, lan parties beat any consoles...playing fps's against 30 or so other guys can't b beat...even against 8 or so still rocks....the only prob. it is more hastle and some pcs won't connect which can b a b!tch = (

10-04-2001, 02:54 PM
hey drisc what part of boston u from....i chose console....pc's are good for games but instaling sucks ass

10-04-2001, 03:27 PM
With xbox, LAN parties will be even better and easier to set up!

10-04-2001, 11:01 PM
Yeah, but the best games are fps's, I doubt they will b as good with an Xbox...the other thing is that I don't know more than like 5 people who are getting an Xbox
