I dropped out midway through the last console generation and have been PC only (I was mixed before). I’ve only done PC upgrades when needed (ie a part dies or falls behind minimum specs).

The hardware can be expensive if you try and keep up with every new hardware gen every year. But, the games themselves are way cheaper than console.

You can install SteamOS and turn it into a gaming system.

It's easy and pretty affordable. Case, motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, hard drive, power supply - and your're done. Just slot everything in the right places and you're golden. And you'll need to install Windows or Linux. I'm far from an expert, but it was easy for me, and I built a beast.

I got a gaming PC 2.5 years ago from NewEgg during their Memorial Day Sale. Since then, I haven't played by XBox One at all except for Red Dead Redemption 2, which was a console exclusive at the time it was released.

Sadly PC gaming is all in on this bullshit as well. Most large games put up guilt based splash screens on their games when you launched them, spewing BLM propaganda when Fentynol Floyd OD'd.

Sadly if you want to use any modern tech, including games, you're likely supporting those who want you dead because you don't share their political views.

True, the smaller game studios are not getting caught up in the signalling bullshit, they are too busy trying to make their game successful (which is what they should all focus on)

Banning people for nono talk will hilariously backfire when people start hurling their favorite insult. Hint, white adults don't typically say this word, but children, ghetto residents and chinese that say "umm" a lot do.

yup.

although we have to get rid of windows next, leaving xbox for pc is kind of a lateral move.

If someone made Linux easier to install and set up we'd all be running it instead of Windows. Valve was trying it with SteamOS but they seem to have stopped developing it.

They're still supporting Proton, which is a great way to run programs cross-platform. It works incredibly well, but is clearly still a work-in-progress.

PC has always been the master race.

Even though I own alot of consoles, I stopped buying them after ps2 and I always had a PC. I wish game devs would go back to deving for PC first then for console secondary. Since they started deving for console first then porting to PC games have taken a big shit.

Plus I HATE how they never release a full game now, games full of pay to win and DLC.

I'm a PC guy as well, but that means Windows. I don't know if you're familiar with who runs that business, but it's NOT the boy scouts.

Mother double dang flipper gang of rooster lollipops!!! (Sorry bout the language!)

Been a PS man since my younger brother started working and brought one home.

Is Nintendo pulling the same garbage cause I’m not giving a dime to micro-flaccid either.(even though Xbox and PS5 look like monster consoles)

Feels like I’m walking thru the beaded curtain at the video store. (Old reference, many here won’t get) “Hello, PC, I’m a gamer. It’s about time we talk!”

Sold my PS4--used the proceeds to build a custom PC. Very happy I made the switch.

All the BS political stuff aside. Both consoles were disappointing. The Xbox 120fps mode will not be on most games and the ones that it will work on will be offline single player mode.

Well if you read the TOS of any service, like using your console, it basically implies they change things as they see fit (which is usually just to protect them on their updates). But that same caveat could have been used in a "show of solidarity" and force everyone to spare their space for a movement most gamers actively shit on.

This also applies to Steam and GoG.

Welcome. There’s a learning curve, but also a thriving community eager to help. Not shilling for the site/app but I use Slickdeals to find good prices on components.

Not sure what games you play, but if you’re into FPS get ready to lose your auto aim crutch. PC players don’t get the benefit that console players do.

It’s the default in COD. They also don’t have the same recoil. Watching kill cams of console players quick scoping with sniper rifles is absurd.

I’m sure you will, it’s just my most recent frustration with cross platform games.

Honestly, you’ll never look back. You can play games online without paying a monthly fee for the privilege. There’s also a ton of good indy content out there. And Discord beats in-game voice chat any day.

Ever since Sony's head office moved to CA, they've been on an woke spree. Japan game developers want nothing to do with PS with that censorship they keep pushing.

I seriously applaud you for your decision. However if you boycott everytime a company does something you disagree with youre not going to have many companies to buy from. Just don't download the theme. Its not for you anyways.

It appears that you have chosen the PC Master Race over Sony's Master Race.

It gets worse mate. The eula for hong kong specifically states they can't bad mouth china government. Was def excited to get a ps5. Xbox has like one exclusive and halo: breath of the wild is sketchy looking to me. Thankfully game pass will let me play good games no matter what.
