Console is more convenient due to more people owning one. For those people who have gamed on PC's for the last decade and change, they obviously are preferential to the PC swing of things. Everything is better on PC, that is a fact. You don't have the same limitations on PC that you face on consoles.

Not to mention I can play MORE games on my PC just as easy as any console. Hooked up to my 50" Plasma and a wireless xBox or Playstation controller is the same experience, only high res.

easy there gents.. PC is a tad easier with mouse and keyboard. plus with these consoles, you don't have to worry about having a killer video card and the likes. while i agree with you elder, wiser gamers IOWA and NY, you gotta give the console some credit!

I'm not taking any credit away from current gen consoles. They clearly serve their purposes, and very well at that I might add. I'm just saying that with their limitations, it is hard to see them being overall better products as many may believe/suggest. Convenience gets you to buy the console, but that doesn't get you to stick around. Why do you think there are so many people who own all three?

hmm i think times are a' changin. with laptops and tabs on starting to be the norm for lotsa people, i think the numbers are going to change. not saying any1 will die off... just maybe a shift.

1 thing i never got was handhelds. yeah yeah i had a gameboy and SEGA (forgot it's name)... but that's where i stopped. the gameboy lasted what felt like days, and the SEGA lasted hours with the bright color screen and the TV (i actually had that!)

is the Vita battery any good? PSP? i'm not sure?

I got both !
On PS 3, I play only esxclusive PS 3 games. Because the developers made the game exactly for this system. But other games, that come out on both consoles I play on my XBox 360. Online gaming is better on Xbox. Especially if you're an FPS fan. But, PS 3 games like Killzone is also good one for online.

Actually there is NO DIFFERENCE.
I love PS 3 for its Exclusive Awesome Games.
I love Xbox 360 for its better online and more comfortable gaming with its better controller

I have a PS Vita and the battery life probably could be better. I probably average something like 5 hours between charges, but that's total time - not consecutive. I only play it on my commute to work, so basically every 2-3 days I charge it up. I got it as a present though, so I'm not going to complain. The only thing I play on it is MLB 12 The Show lol.

While I don't have a proper PC, I must say I do actually prefer that for gaming. It's just not as powerful as modern consoles... so I get my modern games going on the ps3. Though, I must say that the xbox has a better controller IMO... maybe not tech wise, but it does seem more comfortable...

I have the adapter for the ps3 controllers so I can dock them to charge them. Full charge in a couple of hours, and it lasts about a week or so with my use habits.

I play on my PC frequently for gaming. CS: source, all the GTAs, My MMOs (I'm loving Swtor but I was an EVE player and really who hasn't played wow.) but I love my Xbox also! I like the controller, the PC connectivity with media center, and I can plug my phone in and get all my music and pictures and videos displayed on my TV. I'm a former manager of GameStop and from my experience I can say that there is little difference between PS3 and 360 if you look at them in terms of gaming consoles. Yes they have different physical features like that Blu-ray player but take this into consideration, the new slim PS3s have only 2 USB ports on the front. the new slim has 2 in front and 3 more in back. Also Every game that is released on 360 is compatible with 1080p seems like its only about the top 30-35% of titles that are released on the PS3 have 1080p compatibility. The rest only display 720p at the highest. I hear the argument a lot that the PS3 does 60 fps, this is true but these are only actually 30 frames played in duplicate. 2 of the same frames in a row isn't so noticeable to us but some people do experience extra flicker or noise on their sets. I know the Xboxs have broken a lot and they have a terrible reputation. but people are still buying them. knowing that they have to pay to play online with Xbox Live because the PSN cant touch their size. I've had Xbox Live for about 8 years so I have also the roots of it being an Xbox original fan... that was another great console i still have mine modded to hell so i have all the SNES games and n64 there are like 8k games on that all thanks to my Xbox!

Fact is people are going to love what they love for different reasons. Its hard to prove to them otherwise. I'm still In love with the PC the PC is the ultimate machine, cant ever beat out something that is constantly evolving and improving. Consoles stay the same until the next one is released.

TLDR: PC>Xbox360>PS3

PSOne/SNES (Tied; Look at the great titles for both) > NES > PS3 > Sega Genesis > Atari (lulz. I'm old) > Sega Saturn > Dreamcast > N64 > XBOX 360

I like every system I ever owned equally. I had.... probably not in order and might leave 1-2 out due to forgetting...:

Atari 2600, Coleco Vision, NES, Sega Master System, SNES, Sega Genesis, N64, PS One, Dream Cast, Turbo Graphix 16, PS 2, Orig Xbox, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii.

The last 5 I still have. And I use my Wii or PC to get my old school gaming on.

I tried gaming on my PC....and the most I did, do play is The Sims 1,2 and 3...(dont judge me..lol) I did play some Fantastic 4, Prince of Persia, Silent Hill games too.

Just got into the handheld systems. Like my sons 3DS and my Vita equally. I feel more comfortable playing my Vita tho.

We can fight about Android and iPhone all day, every day....but when it comes to gaming....I have no favorites.

Had to add...I did play a version of Madden one year on my PC and on my orig Xbox or PS2. The graphics were better on the PC. A PC with a decent hardware config will probably give you better graphics.

Given the game library the Super Nintendo had, I would say it wins hands down. I own a PS3 and aside from certian titles (demon's souls, MGS4,and RDR) it's just eye candy.

XBox 360 is the winner in my opinion because of the entertainment options in addition to all the blockbuster games.

Depends on what you do when you play games. The 360 is better than any other console or PC in terms of gaming with friends. Sure you can set up teamspeak, ventrillo, etc. on the pc for a game, and some games even have it built in, but the 360 is hand over fist the best at talking to new "random" gamers, for lack of better words.

All that said, I prefer my home theater PC. It is my DVR, hooked to my surround and bigscreen, where I can play all the roms I could ever want. We built the thing a few months back and I am dismayed I waited this long to get one.

We have a 360 and PS3. In the last year the PS3 has only seen blurays (and I might just get a BR drive for the HTPC instead). I am not sure the 360 has even been turned on in over a year.

Pc games are way cheaper than console games, also a plus.

I see some have picked Super Nintendo.

I'm sorry....my first console was an Atari 2600. I cannot see anyone picking the Super Nintendo over the PS3 or 360. Just based on graphics alone I wouldnt pick the Super Nintendo. Mabye for nostalgia, reminiscence reasons. Phantasy Star was my first role playing game (think it started on the Sega Master System?) and had me hooked on RPG's for a long time. Now I barely play RPG's.

Games like GTA....sometimes I play it just to drive around and listen to the radio. Just drive and cause mayhem. Final Fantasy is alot more richer, alot more in depth on the later systems. Alot of times I play games on the 360 or PS3 and just be in awe at the graphics, the ambiance...lol. The way the games draws you in its world. Especially on an HDTV. That plus surround sound system = amazing gaming experience IMO.

Madden is another example. I cannot believe one would really say they prefer it on the SNES vs the PS3 or 360...lol.

I have a Wii that I play alot of the Super Nintendo games on....my PC too. And its just not the same overall experience. I understand its all preference...I just look at it like someone saying they prefer the old tube TV's vs. an HDTV. Or standard def channels to HD channels. Or DVD's to Blu Ray.

I like all that I mentioned...but if I had to choose...I would choose the later technology. Even tho I like HD channels...I record most things on standard def ones. Takes up less space on the DVR. I meant to record this year's E3 on an HD one tho...lol.

For PC games...I need to use a controller. And PC games are nice. Madden looked alot better on the PC vs the orig Xbox and PS2. I'm just not a gamer on the PC. I think most of the games I like arent on the PC.

I agree. I also started back in the 2600 days, had something called a Vectrex, Sega Genesis, etc., and the way games are now is how I always wished they would be back then. Back then you had to use your imagination to get into an rpg lol. Plus, when you play those old games now, they are freaking hard! Modern controls are so much better. I've bought those compilations of old games before, thinking it would be cool to play Dig-Dug or something again, and they usually just gather dust after a few plays. Modern games ftw. (I still prefer single player games, though)

Although im a big fan of gaming i havent really owned that many consoles.

Atm im firmly a PS3 fan.

But should be buying my first XBOX 360 in a month or 2 so will be able to decide better then. There are a few 360 specific game series that i am itching to try - HALO, GEARS and FABLE for starters

Gaming on the PC im 50/50 on
Undoubted PC is the ONLY thing to play RTS on and i used to prefer it for playing FPS games like halflife and halflife 2 but have been converted recently to console FPS with Deus ex HR.
On the minus side I have had plenty of problems running games on the PC due to compatabilty with the hardware of my PC.

Although again I have never really been able to afford a PC that was capapble of doing any serious gaming due to its spec. And having recently tried and enjoyed WOW i was bested by the fact the the crappy internet we have gave the game monumental lag when entering the first big city.

I have however recently connected my PC up to my 37" HD tv for the first time and the results are outstanding. In a few months i will be buying a gaming PC tower and my opinion might be completely different.

I prefer PC/Laptops for browsing the internet, homeworks etc. and Console for gaming, due to the controllers. I'm not saying I don't game at all on the PC - I play a little CS, GTA III and AssaultCube, but nothing else.

That's because Sega didn't censor everything to try and make it kid friendly.

Besides PC the only gaming systems I have are the following:

Atari, SNES, N64 .. that is all haha

I use be a console gamer when the 360 first came out I loved it.. but then I started to play on PC and realized how much easier it was with a mouse and keyboard. Though on PC you have a higher chance that someone may be using hacks.

Thats my preference.

While the SNES has great games such as Drakhen, the Genesis had Dune: Battle for Arrakis.

Still have my SNES and a few games, all still work and have save files from back in the day! I got a PS3 to act as my bluray player. I still have NES, Wii, original XBOX, PS1, PS2, Gamecube, Dreamcast.

Yes but in retrospect look at all the neat pc mods you can find. Left 4Dead for example. The teletubby mod. Much more terrifying than zombies.

You raise a very valid argument there! I do like modding games that I play myself, and you just cannot do that on any console game, at least not as easily.

back in the early days of Call of Duty I modded all the weapons and vehicles for the multiplayer for COD UO, made the American pistol full auto made a few of the weapons more powerful, and made the tanks lightning fast haha.

So yes there is still a plus to the negative I had listed earlier, and it completely slipped my mind. I know I would be scared if I was running away from a blood thirsty "Tinky Winky?" or "poe" haha
