    Ok... lets keep this a nice clean thread, don't insult other posters, if you disagree with them, do so in a conversing fashion. I've worked out the Pro's and Cons between each

    PC: Pros

    More game availibility
    More solid atmosphere then consoles
    Fun to upgrade
    lots of options to tweak
    Best for FPS's

    Consoles: Pros

    Most games that come out on PC come out on consoles
    More portable
    Easier to sit down and play without having to install
    Just get a chip and you're open to thousands of different types of games
    No system requirements
    Games developed to make games play at optimum effiency
    No worry about upgrades.
    Can play on huge screen TVs
    Keyboard and Mouse available

    PC: Cons

    Expensive
    Clunky
    Always have to upgrade
    Have to install
    Can get viruses
    Have to get patches, updates etc
    Needs to install games


    Consoles: Cons

    No options to tweak.
    No resolution to change.
    Controls take getting used to

    Overall I think Consoles are betteR?

    What do you think?

    sometimes u can use the gamepad from a platform (like ps2 and plug it i the usb)
    if the game supports it

    also u can play your pc at a tv or a bigscreen if u've got a good tv-out link and so on

    What do you think?
    a MASSIVE pro for the pc is the constant avalability of MODs. i wod neva get max payne 2 for a consoul because on the pc i can get all the matrix, unltra slow-mo, kung fo 4 etc etc and the fact that chipping is dangerous where as wiv bittorent everygame ever made (with in reason) is ablable free)

    starcraft was rly hard to play on the n64 but easy on the pc.

    online play ok u cna do it now but its not as good and as many ppl and pc.

    i mean GTA:VC is gd but with the added mod for mp its amazing and adds much more vllue to the game.

    EDIT: and for god's sake 30 for a bloody memory card i mean wtf!!!
    and the memry card is like 8mb where al for 40 you could buy a 40gb hard drive.

    2nd EDIT:mouse + keyboard is much better than control. AND just to add to all that pc versions all ways either gain more or hav better graphics ie max payne 2=mods, vice city=mp3 player and character changer and mods

    PC's easly beat consoles

    Why do you want to tweak them anyway?


    No resolution to change.
    True, some games let you make it widescreen..(vice city)


    Controls take getting used to
    Ps2 controls are the best and easiest....alot easier then using the keyboard for every pc game that has different controls/keys.

    Get a bigger screen
    How big can u get a pc screen? without paying 3k?
    I played gran turismo once on the living room tv, fucked the image up though..
