Ups and downs of PC versus Console Gaming
Overall, a PC offers better graphics and more upgrade options, and will always be more powerful than any games console. When it comes to games, you will find a greater variety of games on PC than on any console, and usually comes at a cheaper price.
On the other hand, a console is definitely easier to use and accessible in the long run, but the performance and the graphics usually aren’t as good, and console games tend to be a bit more expensive too.
PC and console gamers both want to make the best of the money spent. For a console gamer, costs are generally limited to purchasing the console, extra controllers, games, and perhaps online multiplayer passes. For a PC gamer, there’s a wide variety of options to buy if you choose to build your own computer, but not every PC gamer has their own custom-built machine.
Because of the wide variety of possibilities and differences in perceived value, it is almost impossible to say whether it is the PC or the consoles that are more cost-efficient. It completely depends on the individual. The level of customization and performance you’re looking for determines the size your budget needs to be to get the platform you want.
Generally, PC gamers need to have more technical skills than console gamers. Although it is possible to modify a console by adding new hardware, it’s not necessary. Console gamers do need to be able to install the sequel or update of their games
PC gamers need at least a minimal level of technical skills, even if they purchased a pre-built gaming computer. And by technical skills, it is not the ability to write HTML code that you need, but the ability to set up a computer with a general idea of how it operates. A PC gamer might also want to upgrade hardware components and install new drivers for those components, which calls for an intermediate skill level.
It is possible to add new hardware to a console with a minimal technical skill level. With a PC, the upgrades can be much more extensive. Each hardware component can be upgraded, along with other cosmetic features like the system’s case.
