Thats how I do it. Wink
You can do it with a PC too

Not with as much ease as consoles. Its not standard for a PC to be on the TV

Have you ever set up a TV monitor?

I have used a small flat screen TV as a monitor before yes, but I meant hooking it up to like a 56 in TV

Everything, it's a fantastic alternative to consoles, most people say that it's way too expensive but to be honest you could look at it like this (going to use GBP here so don't flinch):

Awesome Gaming PC (that you build on your own: £1200

plus say, 20 games (that are always cheaper on PC, eg: ArcaniA on 360 is £40 but on PC it's only £17 but for example) but just to generalize let's say they are £30 each which is about right for a new release: £30 20 x 30 = 600

1200 + 600 = 1800

If you wanted a similar set up on a console

Console: (dependant on choice obv but for a bundle lets say £250

With 20 games normally at £40: 40 x 20: £800

With a half decent laptop in replacement of all the features the PC can do bar top notch gaming at £600ish

plus a sub to LIVE/PSN Gold at £40 last time I looked

250 + 40 + 800 + 600 comes out at £1690

That is £150 difference, but tbh mods, dedicated servers a back catalogue of over 30 years of gaming and the fact that mulis are generally better on PC that pretty much makes up the difference

Or you could just pirate all your games and save 600 but you can do the same on a JTagged 360 (Don't do it kids it's very wrong and you could get sent to shower time prison).

If i want to game on PC, I would only do i for MMO's and RTS.Nothing else.Everything else id prefer on a console.

Console gaming is the best imo

And no console fanbase is as terrible as PC's

How would you know unless you actually game on a PC and interact ingame with the PC community? =P Exactly, you wouldn't know. You just say they're the worst because some of them get pissy when console fanboys down PC gaming when they know nothing of it. Get real brah. Razz

I have never encountered whiny high pitched voice 12, 13, and 14 year olds on my computer.
I have to put up with that shit daily on xbl. So what are you talking about? Also I know graphics arent everything but I only upgrade my computer like every 4 or years or so. It really isn't that expensive as some of you make out to be.

There was actually this really young kid in our L4D1 party today. We were playing on this awesome mod (where you get upgrades like Armor, laser sights, incineration ammo, explosive ammo, SUPER PILLZ, and low gravity enabled on all maps! SHIT IS SO FUN!) There was one kid in there that had this high pitched voice, so high, that I couldn't tell whether it was a boy or girl. But this kid...he...he was civil. @_@

BTW guys...BILL COSBY SMOKER IS THE GREATEST THING EVER! XD

Sorry for the double post. (I don't know how to multi-quote O_o)

But I'd be more enticed to get a high end gaming PC for that Infinity game you posted. I read up about it on the official forums and the game seems like it's going to be EPIC! The scale of an MMORPG like that has never been done.

But that's the thing about PC gaming, games like that are few and far between. Well one's that interest me.

It depends. I've heard complaints for Dead Space's controls for the PC and almost no RTS with the exception of Halo Wars has been successful on a console.

Also to answer OP's question: Fuck'd if I know.

I think Stoney said it best: with the exception of mods there's not much difference between the two.

Or something like that.

I dont get why people think PC gaming is dead....

WoW has sold more copies then any console game in history.. (excluding the bundled game from nintendo)

The Sims has sold over 30M copies with all the games (1, 2 and 3)

PC gaming isnt dead, its just something console blokes doesnt understand.

I'm pretty sure WOW has only 10 million subsribers.

And Super Mario Bros. sold like 40 million copies.

No, no, no, no, no, think about it, the first games were the ones on the big arcade machines, and home videogameconsoles like the Atari Pong or Magnavox Oddyssey, later came the computers, which adapted these features, like the Commodore 64 videogamecomputer.

Oddysey was released 1967 and Pong was released 1972.

Before that there was Spacewar!, wich was made 1961 for the DEC PDP-1 computer. The whole argument is moot, since the first interactive electronic game used cathode ray tubes. You don't see people saying "games were originally intended to be played on cathode ray tubes", do you?

I don't like PC Gaming.

I'm a fraghead, but I don't like RTS's, and not much of a MMORPG guy.\
So that knocks a lot of PC games dead there.
And 1000$ or more for a great PC? I'm goooood.

300 bucks for a PS3/360 is good.

You can build a PC for like 400-? dollars that can run generic FPS games like Crysis, STALKER, and Black Ops on HIGH settings that actually isn't much of a difference from Medium settings.
