PC is the "Master Race" of the gaming universe not because it outperforms consoles, at the same price point, but because you have the option of going all out. Whereas you can't really upgrade a console. Let's see a console compete against a $2k PC. PC is to Console, as Gated Community is to Trailer Park. (to be fair though, they probably do both have a fence that runs the length of the property line!)

Unless graphics is the absolute be all and end all, having a 'good' PC isn't about all of that. Having a good PC is more about the versatility it gives you. Consoles go out of date very quickly with the constant battling of competitors and I've had a 1070 in my rig for years and not changed my rig for years. Might not mean I can play games at super ultra settings but I can mod games, play games from years back (with some tweaking), play newer games at lower settings (but still play them), watch Netflix and surf the web without extra hidden subscription charges. I spent a price to build my PC and it still serves me fine. If I want to make a change then I can but I don't think any game justifies me whacking out a fortune just for better graphics right now.

I know this, in Ontario a $500 Pc is trash, my $1700 Pc from 2016 cant even compare to the new consols. Im not building a PC with next generation consol hardware around here for anything less than $2000+ MsRp retail/New. PC gaming sux nowadays, theres no physical games anymore they have been discontinued for a decade now and games are all Digital (Eww) And the fact that PC hardware costs 3X4 more than a consol of equivalent hardware. If i even want any RtX gpu i have to go through Staples or Walmart lol, my local PC store thats been around 20 years doesnt even want to deal with RTX 20 series cards because there crazy expensive, and the RtX 30 series cards are difficult to get. After 20 years being a PC gamer, i now prefer consol. XbSX is a great system, not state of the art but definitely high end. But PlayStation 5s my favorite and primary gaming platform,and PlayStations controllers are unbeatable...I do love PCs and spent so many years building them but theres no motivation anymore. PC Master Nothing....IMO..

In my mind, you don't need to beat a $500 console. You need to beat a $500 console and a $500 laptop, minimum. Most people have at least one PC in their house. If it's for gaming purpose, it's a $400-500 GPU and a $500-600 build on the rest of the components.

@ArcaneVoid bro I respect your opinion but unfortunately its not correct, as per my belief. Old stuff means stuff that has spent some time of its life and is somewhat closer to getting broken. You can have more storage on pc? well you so can have on PS4 with bigger drive. Controller is the way to play, unless you playing any AOE, SIMS kinda game. if the consoles are sold at loss, isnt that good for the consumer??? why we arguing this point. the small form factor pc exist but they perform relatively bad as compared to even old consoles. . TV are the displays bro the bigger they are the cooler the experience. i dont understand the need to gaming 4k on 24" monitor, i mean you can't differentiate between 1080 and 4k on 24". the pixel density is already too high. I hope it would be convincing.

Your budget should have been the cost of Xbox Series X for gaming + the cost of Chromebook for browsing and other stuff. Targeting just $500 misses the point that people probably have a cheap computer for doing the other stuff your gaming PC will do.
Mukesh Angrish
Mukesh Angrish Vor 20 Stunden
@cromnio Nope. My point is that if they are opting for a gaming PC or a gaming laptop, then the budget should be higher than the cost of Xbox Series X since a PC/laptop will "likely" be used for non-gaming stuff too. Again, I'm talking only about those who have/will choose a PC/laptop as their primary gaming device over an Xbox Series X. I also understand that there will be a nominal exception to this, but in the majority of the cases, the budget should be higher.
cromnio Vor 21 Stunde
@Mukesh Angrish My point was that the budget shouldn't be increased because in most cases people already have a laptop. Your point was people had to choose between buying either a laptop and the series x or buy a pc, so therefore the budget should be increased. Is this correct?
Mukesh Angrish
Mukesh Angrish Vor 22 Stunden
@cromnio I understand your point. However, you completely misunderstood my comment. I'm not arguing if a console can be replaced by a PC. That's what the video is trying to do. I only said that their budget for this kind of video should have been higher, since a person using a laptop/PC for gaming would not need another similar computing device (laptop/PC) just for browsing and other stuff.
cromnio Vor 22 Stunden
that argument does and doesn't work. Let's say a guy wants to buy a gaming device to play modern AAA title and would like convenience(i.e not setting up a pc for example), and he already has a laptop(a reality for most people tbh). The consoles are perfect for this type of people because it ticks all 3 things, he just want to sit down and play with consistency(i.e nearly every game on the consoles is guaranteed to run at their rated res and fps), he doesn't have to do anything other than insert his credit card here and credit card there, he doesn't need a another pc.

I recently switched to PC. Not because of performance, but just convenience. I like having one device that can do all my computing needs.

Bang for the buck if you are looking for just a gaming rig the Xbox is not a bad way to go given the price of current gen hardware.

@XDVryrz 34 Even if that were true, which I don't think it is, that's not the only thing in the console's favor, as he mentioned in the video: much more storage and faster SSD, better controller, support for ray tracing, absence of a need to mix and match parts and troubleshoot everything, etc. Also, that's an INCREDIBLY vague comparison to make if you just call it even because of one thing you consider an advantage. I've bought used consoles for $10. In a few years you'll be able to get a Series X for $250 on craigslist. Think a $250 PC can match it? It's said the One X was about on par with a GTX-1060. There's no way in hell you can convince me the Series X is only as powerful as a 1070.

The thing is that those prices on cosoles can be that "low" with that hardware because Microsoft and Sony take a percent when they sell games on their systems. Let's say they get 10$ of each game on full retail price on release, and as people get more games the more they recover for hardware and still make profit. Not to talk about paid online, subcription services, DLC, etc. For PC on the other hand you got software way cheaper and still be able to do other stuff like Linus said. Dont get me wrong Valve and other game software distributors still get their share, lower, but it's still there. Still intend on keeping my 9 years old Gaming PC at least for one more year.

it really makes me sad to see people still beating each other over the Console/PC thing. consoles are doing so great at delivering what they should deliver relative to their price tags. I have friends and family who cannot make sense of video settings in modern games. they absolutely have no idea what the hell Anti-Aliasing means and how a single toggle drastically impacts the performance of their games. so what's the point of them having a monster rig loaded with a 3080 when they can't even utilize it? IMO, the big difference is not in the machines themselves. but the difference lies in the people who are using them. in the end, it all boils down to one's knowledge about technical stuff. if you can safely overclock your HW and optimally set your games to give you every drop of FPS possible, then go for a PC. if not, then settle for a console and play without any hassles. just remember, a PC is not a gaming machine. it's far more than that. it's everything you ask it to be. but you must know how to talk to it. with the sheer amount of rendering power a 3080 gives you, you can earn back the money by freelancing with Illustrator or Blender. you can even learn Machine learning and Neural networks. hell, even mining Crypto. I mean whatever you want. put that power to some real use. and don't get mad over console prices being so cheaper than your single GPUs. remember consoles can't even run a calculator.

How would you feel if I told you I got *all* Xbox game pass games FOR FREE legitimately on pc without paying A CENT, including *all* EA play games for a LIFETIME whiteout paying either, and those many games only in this month. How would you feel? No piracy *

@Turtle Fan how is it worth it when your paying for something you shouldnt need to pay for?

@Alt Acc it's $60 for a year and comes with gamepass which is worth it by that because gamepass is like 300 games

It is only $80 bucks more, and on Xbox you need to pay $120 per year for online. So technically pc = still cheaper. 🤔

Try building the PC without used/second hand parts, it's just not going to be anywhere near possible. And the controller is just a joke. It would be more interesting to see how expensive it would be to actually match XSX performance (SSD vs SSD, CPU vs CPU, GPU vs GPU etc.) with brand new, off the shelf PC parts. PS. I'm just a gaming/tech enthusiast who sees value for all the platforms. Too old to care about any "master race" debate.. :)

You can't test the cpu and ssd's. What do you want to do? Use a cpu benchmarking tool for the Xbox?

To match the series x you would need all NEW comparable pc parts (amd equivalents) new ms xsx wireless controller and blu-ray drive. Not going to happen for anywhere near $500.
Jack Burton
Jack Burton Vor 4 Tage
@Alt Acc no, $800 is not "near" $500. $800 is 1.6x more than $500. An you will not build a PC with new equivalent hardware, including new wireless controller and uhd blu-ray drive for anything less than $1000.

@Jack Burton yeah, so maybe $800 bucks. That makes the pc still a good deal. 🤷‍♂️

@Alt Acc you misunderstood me. Must be a language barrier. I said if you include a uhd blu-ray player (over $100) and a wireless series x controller ($50 to $60) it would make a PC equivalent well over $500.
Alt Acc

@Jack Burton You said: "if you put in a blu-ray drive and a wireless controller it would not going to happen for anywhere near $500" and then you said "you wil get north of 1k".. I can't find one at msrp, I can't find one in my country for $500 bucks as well (they forgot to convert the currency so it is more like $640 in my country), and I can't find a Xbox that does not lock me out of playing online without paying $120 bucks. 🤷‍♂️

I have a feeling you guys haven't included any of the shipping in the prices. I'm sure you found that 1070 for $200 plus $100 shipping. Or you have a team of auction Hunters to help get you these kinds of prices.

The sad fact is that a LOT of people paid three times retail for the new consoles when the scalpers scooped them up. Realistically you could be showing the kind of machine you could get with that kind of money.

Where did you find an Xbox for 399-500. I get the simplicity of it. However, I am just not a console guy. after 3 or 4 years I can upgrade my PC a little bit to keep it up to date. 4 years from now a 500 dollar PC will def beat out the Xbox. If I remember right doesn't Microsoft do a new Xbox like every 6 years or so?

Consoles aren't designed to generate profit. Almost every console player I know spends money to play online, and they pay subscription fees to rent games monthly. I spend on average $5 per game I purchase. I don't pay to play with friends. That's several hundred dollars per year alone. Over 7 years (if I remember the last console lifespan correctly) that's easily a great gaming PC. That doesn't include the stupid advertising on consoles. God do I HATE the Xbox One S I bought my now 4 year old son two years ago. I constantly feel like crap is being shoved in my face. My pc just fires up and we play. My son even prefers pc gaming because he sees the difference (both in FPS and the other stuff mentioned here).

I love my 1070. I'd love to have a 3080 (and would upgrade now if they were in stock) but for most games I'm not really missing much and can play the majority in 4k with high or ultra settings and decent frames. That said I'm sure in a year or two we will see some more demanding titles.

And you can play with mouse and keyboard. 😁 5 year old GPU and CPU hold up against current brand new console. Seems about right.
pallenda Vor 5 Tage
@Turtle Fan it's hard to understand what you type. I am saying a 5 year old GPU for PC is about as good as brand new GPU in consoles. Both are old GPUs. And on top there is great mouse and keyboard support on PC, some types of games aren't really out on consoles because almost nobody has mouse and keyboard on console. How many console games really have great support for mouse and keyboard? I would very few if any. On PC I can just plug in a console controller and use that. PC is more versatile.
