Okay let me start by saying this.
I am better than most of you ppl on this board. Ever since childhood my mother told me to look down upon ppl. Carrying this from my youth I was always attracted to nice things. Soooo when the time came to choose between PC or consoles.. I went with PCs because it is simply the best.
This past weekend I spent time with the family in Grand Ilse, so no PC gaming for me. What I was forced to do during the day was play on a PS3 that stays at the camp. So during one of the many random daytime showers we would play some BLOPS2 to past time. It has been 2-3yrs since really playing a console game that was both on PC and PS3, what I couldn't get over were how bad the mechanics and graphics are in the game. Was shocked to see how shitty characters moved around unnaturally and low textured renderings of the whole game.
The thing i'm getting at is... the gap between PC and consoles is large, really large and if you believe those shtty console APUs in next gen rigs will shorten this.. put the kool aid down. The delta between the 2 platforms will stay at equal relation to each other and may actually INCREASE w/ more coders writing for x86. The premium price consolers pay for their consoles and games compared to PCs is really a lop sided ratio. You can outperform next gen consoles building a PC at the same price point, especially if you're buying into the XBOX ONE.
Maybe when late November rolls in here some of the consolers should give building a steam box/pc for the living room a thought. You would set yourself up for a better experience at the same price point.
Remember, this is a serious conversation.
