For years, Coast Spas Reviews has read and listened to debate after debate on which is better console gaming or PC gaming. Well, we are here to put a nail in that coffin. It is unequivocally PC gaming and below we will tell you why.
Why PC Gaming is Better
When consumers first got their hands-on computers, many of them used them as a way to play games. This was not the original intent of computers, but it sure has become the focus of many debates in recent years. Below we outline exactly why we feel that gaming and computers go hand in hand.
Power – While the processors on a console can be quite powerful it has never, and will never, compete with the power of a PC. While, essentially, both are computers, consoles lack the room needed to put powerful processors inside of them.
Monitors – When you are using a console game, you can only have the experience on one screen at a time. They do not have a function to multi-screen like PC does and that can really pull you into the game. We know several PC gamers that set up three monitors to play a first-person shooter (FPS) and it expands their field of view 10x that of a console game.
Controllers – With console games you have all the buttons you will ever get on one controller. When it comes to PC gaming the buttons go from the mouse to the keyboard. With keyboards having around 75 different keys, that can all be hot-keyed for in-game commands, this adds a whole new level of playability. This gives you total control of your gaming experience, all with a faster response time than normal controllers.
Choices – There are hundreds, if not thousands, of extra choices when it comes to gaming on a PC. Add that to the fact that almost every game that has ever come out for a platform (console) game is now available for PC. You cannot say the same thing for console gaming.
Price – While it is true that the price of a gaming PC is almost three times more than that of a console, look at how much more you get. In addition to being able to play your games, you can also work on your PC as well. I bet you don’t see very many business men and women doing their PowerPoint project on their Xbox or PlayStation.
Like we said from the start, gaming was not the original intended use of computers, but with the advancement in technology, it has become the greatest platform for gaming. One other strike for the console gamers, you would think that with your game coming completely on a disk with no need to download between instances, that you would not have to wait for the game to load. The fact is, it often takes longer for games to load on a console game than it does on a PC game that is relying on the internet to push the new matesrial to the player. This is time that Coast Spas Reviews simply does not have time for.
