Only accept if you think consoles are better than PC

PC is better than consoles because:

-More Games
-Emulation (its legal)
-Customization
-Custom Hardware
-Free online
-Mass DRMs like Steam
-60+ fps
-Costs only 200 more, But has access to mountains of features that consoles can't do.

Newer consoles are proving they can tackle things like fast internet, Roku alternative, Soon backwards compatibility with the upcoming PS5.
"Cost 200 more"? You get get a brand new PS4 or Xbox for a few hundred or cheaper used, But a good gaming PC can cost you well over a grand, And it's not so quick & easy to just hookup to your TV.
I'd say anyone with the money & knowledge about computers & intends to use it to the fullest should invest in that, But if you just need something to play YouTube, Video Games, Any old CD's, Netflix, It gets the job done.
I've also found that some 3rd party streaming sites were able to convert flash to whatever my PS4 uses. They occasionally do patch ups but with access to an internet browser on my machine, I was fairly surprised at what it was capable of. Emulation * modding. . . . . Not so sure game piracy is easy on a console, So you got me there.
As soon as desktop's can match the processing power of game consoles at the same price with all it's abilities, I'll think about taking the switch.

"A good gaming PC is well over a grand"

Very funny man.

600 dollars for a 60fps min system. 16 GB of DDR4 ram, 1 TB and 240 GB storage.
All parts new. We don't count used.
It is just as quick and easy to hookup to your TV. Xbox you just connect HDMI, Same with a PC. Nothing more complicated. Did it so much times and never had a challenge.
Piracy is bad. I don't like piracy. Emulation and modding is so much better than consoles.
It matches the power of game consoles. Same price and so much more abilities.

It is so easy.

Here are the stats for the PS4 vs the PC link I sent you

PS4: PC:

CPU: 8 cores, 8 threads. CPU: 4 Cores (better for gaming, I can explain why) 4 threads.

Speed: 1. 6GHZ Speed: 3. 5 GHZ

RAM: 8GB GDDR5 RAM: 16GB of DDR4 + 8GB of GDDR5

Storage: 500GB 5200RPM Storage: 240GB SSD (super fast loading disk) + 1TB (1000GB) 7200 RPM.

So huh?
Will you make the switch now?

Steam is a buying platform why are you calling it a DRM?

How are you disrespect the PC master race? (Joke)
Even that arguments waives thin due to having a computer for 5 years compared to a PS4. Most PS4 games take a while to reduce in price and in some cases never be as low as Steam sales or 3rd party key-selling sites. With this in mind overtime the PC is a cheaper option for gaming. Even when you buy a game brand-new there are cases when you can buy that game less than 60 and it is not even pre-owned so the only issue which I have not come across is keys not working.
