    We all know that these days everybody plays games on any device, several people play games on the phone and that's about it. The usual gamer goes with a console, but then there is also the underrated gamer, those that play in PCs, there was a time when consoles seemed to be more powerful that the PC but, currently I dare to say that no console stand a chance against a monstrous PC Rig.

    Now, that being said, I do want to hear from you guys, your opinions and preferences regarding this interesting topic.

    I am constantly using my PC so I play a lot of games on it.

    A gaming PC can surpass consoles but at a certain point(in my case at least) you end up being obsessed with the upgrades(much more frequent than with consoles) and it's... unhealthy:shootme.

    Personally, I have a gaming laptop and a PS4 as home console(better than a computer to play in groups IMO). I had a 3DS as hand-held console but my sister broke it...

    I'm definitely a PC guy. I just find that consoles aren't that versatile; you can't upgrade them etc.

    I think consoles are certainly the best bet in terms of value for money, you can't even really get a gaming PC for PS4 pro money, for example, and you're probably talking 2x as much by the time you equalise the specs/ performance. So PC is probably best if you are really into it and are willing to throw piles of money at getting a pc (and keeping it updated with new video cards etc) whereas if you just want to play and don't care about maxing out settings and frame rates, consoles can save you a ton of money and will be virtually guaranteed to play most games for years to come, even if they do lose some of the bells and whistles.

    I generally use my PS4 for Single Player games and console exclusives, I mean I couldn't just abandon it after being with Sony since the original Playstation. But for most MP games or Indie games I use PC, as I do a lot of work on there as well.

    PC and PS4 for me.

    As an Indonesian, I grew up with PC and PS. XBox was rather a "newcomer" console and it is not as popular as PS. Also I am not used to those buttons of XBox - A, B, X, Y etc :notlikethis PS' buttons are the best haha
