I have a question. If you have a decent PC with a decent graphics card and a good Console like PS3 or Xbox 360. Which do you buy games for if the game is available on both PC and Console?

Thanks

PC; better support and mods.

Sometimes both, dependent on wether friends want to play on console. If it wasn't for that only point, I would sell my 360.

Console always. I don't bother with my PC anymore. I have an Xbox to play games, and that's what I use to play games. I'm not a hardcore gamer than needs the latest and greatest of everything though. I'm more casual which the console fits better. Plus I actually have friends on Xbox. I can think of 2 or 3 people that I know who play PC games.

If you want the best looking, PC. I'm a PC gamer and I enjoy it very much, but the only issue is that if you have friends over, you're not going to be able to game on a PC. That's where consoles are better in my opinion.

While the Wii U might be a good upgrade from the Wii, at the moment the game support is not there nor are the graphics that much better than the 360 and PS3.

I always spring for the PC version for better graphics, performance, and mouse/keyboard support. Dedicated servers and mods are a bonus if applicable.

PC every time (and not just for the graphics)

unfortunately many of the mainstream games tend to be console exclusives

Were the graphics of the 360 and PS3 good or great when those systems launched ( NO) so give it time but there is one game on the system that hasd some huge upgrades in the graphics deparment over the other systems and that is Trine 2 and that it has PC assets fully glory running on the system


http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-trine-2-face-off Trine 2 Face off Also keep in mind the Wii U is pushing 2 screens somthing the current systems could not nore canot do ( PSP/Vita Dont count they have GPU and CPU inside )

[color=#000000][font=Proxima, sans-serif]The Wii U version also deserves credit, of course. The game not only features many of the graphical upgrades found on the PC, but does so while delivering better image quality than the 360 and PS3 without compromising on the solid frame-rate.

[color=#000000][font=Proxima, sans-serif][i][right]"Aside from some puzzling gamma issues, it's clear that Trine 2 on Wii U offers a decent number of graphical boosts over the existing console versions of the game."[/right][/i][/font][/color]






But the Wii U does offer more then just gaming experience how about the whole social experience or soon the Nintendo TV service


While the Wii U will have plenty of gaming fun for the next 5 years or more the 360 and or PS3 will die down soon not like tommrow but soon enough

PC. Absolute hands down winner, no contest. Always has, and will be - in one form or another.

While games generally always look better on PC, sometimes the ports are woeful and it is better to get it on console.

With PC downloaded games you keep the games but with console games you can sell/trade them if you don't want to keep them. I still go PC but no $50+ games, I wait for the price to go down or sales.

Console mostly. I do buy a couple on PC (BF3 and strategy games), but mostly console. I quite simply got fed-up of all the nonsense surrounding PC games. Crashes, endless patches, the patchers themselves, bugs, multiplayer that requires hours to get working, bugs, endless hardware upgrades, bugs, etc. At one point I was spending more time (and sometimes money) trying to get PC games to work properly than actually playing them. Add on to that that many games you were stuck with once you bought due to DRM/codes/whatever and the end result was my gaming experiences were quite narrow. A game had to appear truly amazing for me to take the risk and even then I was burned a few times.

Bought my PS3 and I've probably played 3 times as many games on it than I ever did on the PC. Plus I work at my computer all day anyway, so getting away from it to play games is quite a good idea.

Console. I still occasionally play games on the computer, but I was never really in to upgrading my system so the nonsense with system requirements got frustrating. There's nothing to worry about with the console though, I can buy any game for it and I know it will work.

I am a PC gamer, but I voted for Console, since it's mean to play games, while PC is not just gaming device.

It depends on the game and how the company behaves really, I'm getting GTA5 for my 360 since Rockstar treat the PC like the child they never wanted, while a company like Crytek or Valve support the PC pretty well, and the increased ability lets me push the games more.
