"PCs Are NOT Gaming Consoles!! PC "gaming" is a ca

Recommended Posts

So.

 

Wouldn't a console technically be a computer? It has a CPU. It has RAM. It has a GPU. It has an OS. It has methods of input and output.

 

That fits all the criteria in my mind (and makes the video somewhat ironic, too).

I think most people that prefer consoles prefer to think of them as something other than a computer though, usually using the argument that it's not personal or that it's the same as the way macintosh isn't a personal computer even though it's a computer, these are just what I've heard people say though, I can't make sense of that logic at all. :lol:

 

I think most of us acknowledge that it is a computer though.

 

Even though I think these two guys are trolls, just to give you an idea how they really see this kind of stuff, the way they are saying it is "consoles are meant for gaming and nothing else, PC is meant for everything and gaming is simply an extra for it." That's how I've seen it explained by some of my console fanboy friends anyway. Personally I would have been inclined to agree with this kind of thinking during the days of PS2 and Gamecube or earlier even, but now that consoles have web browsers, facebook, netflix, and all of these other non-gaming features, it just isn't true, they really are becoming more like a personal computer now. Also I saw some earlier posts in this thread mention that PC is becoming more like/being ruined by console because of things like DLC or poorly ported games with very few options, I personally don't think that's true, most games that I see getting bad ports aren't even that great of games. To me those badly ported games get too much attention just for being bad ports, or even because they might be a AAA title.

I used the controller, I don't find it at all that hard to type using it, it's definitely much slower but not difficult so I don't mind.
