a playstation or a gaming pc? whats the pros and cons?
get what most of your friends have..or you will be playing alone..unless you like playing with yourself, in which case,you wouldn't need neither.
I always recommend to choose basing your decision on exclusive games. I've both, a gaming PC and the PS4 (I've the PS3 too). I wouldn't buy an XBOX One for example cause I don't like their exclusives. I play FPS on PC and mostly other genres in my PS4.
what he said... lol
Depends on what games you play.
Me i will get a gaming pc, as i prefer those games.
But if you want games that you can play with others, and over the net, get a ps4.
Think about what you want from a system, and pick which one, depending on your needs.
It depends more or less on your personal preference because both the console and the gaming PC have their pros and cons.
For the PC, the pros are that you can install and run most of the games which are available for consoles, and you have a backward compatibility, meaning that most games you bought years ago will still work today. And you can use it for other purposes beside gaming. However, the biggest con is that the initial cost of making a gaming PC will be higher than a console one.
For the console, the pros are that you don't have to make a build, or look and select for a specific machine (for instance with a powerful GPU, CPU etc.) - the specs are set and games are made to those specs, and the interface is easier to navigate and focused on the games. The cons are that you cannot upgrade a console and you have a limited backward compatibility.
Hope this helps.
Console if you want specific titles that won't appear on anything else.
Else build yourself a gaming PC.
Without context to the thread it's a little difficult to give you right advice. I would initially say : get both!
However, if you are not at the age of where you have disposable income then I would suggest asking for a console that has the games you want to play and, hopefully, it's the same console that all your friends have - so you can play together but your providers will need to factor in the annual subscription that both current-gen machines have for playing with your friends. Also, if you are the child of wealthy parents, I'd like a 980Ti for my consultation fee
As you asked for pros/cons :
PC: Cheap games+/expensive upgrades-, best gaming experience*+/drivers&settings issues-
Console : Standardised experience+/expensive (new) games-, used game prices+/slow patches-
Hope the above helps.
* Recent PC ports suck
I think that one day consoles will be obsolete after companies stop development on any games except the yearly released/big hit games.
But PC gaming won't stop, and you can customise it better.
Although, a console will be guaranteed to run what you buy.
PC you may end up upgrading thus spending more money.
I would say Gaming PC normaly, but i'm getting old, and getting on the couch and playing some games half asleep with a glass of whiskey is great.
