Default Goodbye PC.

Advertisement

I'm getting the new 360...
ive kinda had enough of my computer. Im finding it too hard to keep up with the new games on PC. If my computer can't handle it, it seems like a big waste of money to me. Why spend around 1000$ on a computer to run a game, when the ports to PC arent even optimized for it (example borderlands)
Most games are ported from console, so why not get what they are made for?
i was thinking about getting a 360 for a while, and the new 250GB WiFi Kinect one kinda sealed the deal for me....
oh well, ill be playing all my VALVe games on PC. so when portal 2 comes outt ill get it for PC. Valve is the only company that supports PC gaming these days so yeah...
anyway.
thats my rant.
see you on xbox live...

Booooo, Xbox can suck my balls! Get a PS3 bro. Unless your into Halo and what not. Only reason I'd get a 360 is fucking Gears man..... its like video game porn... or ecstasy.

Well, I agree with you, Valve is pretty much one of the only companies that respects PC gaming now. But Blizzard does as well, except they with Activision which kinda blows that whole thing over.

Well,

Sorry to see you go.

I never spent more than $400 on a PC and I play all of the latest games (benchmarked at LAN) at max settings.

Have fun with that X-Box but (no hate) it will fail on you. M$ track record with burnt out system is legendary.

Peace,
Megazell

P.S. - There are 612 companies that actively support PC gaming across the globe. Valve/STEAM have more of a presence due to their commercial success and marketing but there are a lot of awesome companies out there. With over 9,345,213,886 free games on the PC (non flash, non broweser based) and over 210 retail games going freeware this year alone like 'Company Of Heroes', 'Lord Of The Rings: Online', 'F.E.A.R 2' and others...I ain't going nowhere!

A week or so ago. I'll be getting a console as soon as the best models are under 200$, not worth it otherwise to me. More expensive games, worse controls (for me anyway), worse graphics, closed platform - no thanks. Not to mention I'd have to get an HDTV for this. 150 bucks for Natal, ~180 for Move if you want those, actually in the long run it's more expensive to be a console gamer.

Hope that choice works out for you and you're happy with it - that's all that matters at the end of the day

TF2, SC2 and Diablo III are enough to force me to keep up-to-date-ish.
