PCs are and will always be ahead of consoles in terms of graphical quality and controls. This new generation of consoles will only match the current generation of high-end gaming PCs and will soon fall behind them, just as they have in every other console generation. Owning a PC gives you access to every MMO as well as thousands of other games. Not to mention the fact that PC controls are far superior to consoles. There is no other platform that comes anywhere close...

TLDR: Basically, if you keep upgrading your PC over the years, you will always have a next-gen console and access to the largest library of games there is.

What you say is almost entirely true... except I would correct you on next gen consoles matching current high end gaming PCs. More like they will match above average gaming PCs... but not high end. Just Google the parts that are going to be used. Actually, my PC that I built 2 years ago with two HD 6850s is still more powerful than the upcoming Xbox One and PS4 in terms of graphical horsepower. 

What the people that create these types of threads fail to see is that consoles are becoming more like PCs... not the other way around.

I think the real question you should be asking is what benefit does a console based MMO have over a PC?

Graphics:  About the Same

Graphics: PC has the advantage. Already ahead in terms of processing power. Plus PC's are constantly evolving.

Controls:  Both can use controllers, but Mouse/Keyboard people have to play on a PC.

Controls: PC is more versatile. Allowing for use of a multitude of controllers, wheels, sticks and mouse/keyboard combo.

Voice Chat:  Most Consoles have integrated voice chat beyond the normal game Voice Chat, PC's can use the game voice chat or another program such s Skype, Teamspeak, and Ventrillo.

Price:  Generally speaking, consoles have recently become cheaper than a "good" gaming PC.

Price: Consoles are cheaper, but PC games are in general much cheaper. Plus, you have an exceptionally large catalogue of games spanning multiple decades to play. Furthermore constant steam and other gaming site sales. A $60.00 console game can be found on sale easily for and often for %50 off on PC.

*Servers:  Since Microsoft and Sony rarely want to play well together, the chances of cross-server grouping is slim

Servers are the biggest issue, IMO.  In all honesty, console MMO gaming is small in comparison to PC MMO gaming.  There are exceptions, of course, but when it comes down to it; PC servers will have a higher population.

Servers: Console systems will be connected to servers that will allow the same population as current PC games. With new power comes new options. Especially since MMO's are devolving into instanced minigames/dungeons. However, as consoles grow stagnant (re; 8 year life cycle) PC's will get further and further along. That is assuming that developers start making MMO's to test those limits...

Granted, this all changes if they allow the aforementioned cross-server grouping.  Defiance was supposed to have it, but it was removed due to issues between the bickering children that are Microsoft Sony.

I think PC gaming is overall the way to go. But I will probably get the PS4 (Was an xbox man prior). MMO's on my console sound great as it puts everyone on the same playing field. It is also my hope that cheating wont be as rampant and they can actually ban the spammers once and for all.

I used to think i'd always have a PC because i like playing MMOs. However, with all the recent developments in the last few days of big MMOs coming to consoles, the reasons for owning a gaming PC are becoming less and less. Don't get my wrong. I'll no doubt always have one, but the days of me spending thousands on gaming PCs for me are over. Just not worth it anymore.


This why if you where true PC gamer its maybe more expensive but if you cahnge becouse of money thats bullcrap comparison.

PC will always be superior to consoles nomatter what.

PCGamer explains why.

"Xbone" - looks like some players are starting to get the idea how the whole gaming industry is turning into a huge cash shop.

And this thread needs to go in the General Gaming section of the forums.

Spending thousands on PC never had much sense to me.  I've always managed to get my gaming PCs for much less and to make them with enough potential that they lasted years as gaming machines.  It's preety easy actually if you don't require uber ultra details, with big AA & AF and a constant 60 fps + to go along with it at absolutely all the time.

 

If someone prefer to play kind of action-adventure MMOs that plays fine with pad, then I can see how they may choose console.

 

Every make decisions for themself, but for me PC stays as my main gaming machine.  Great for kind of games I like to play and will be easier to avoid microtransactions and million of DLCs, now when next gen consoles are embracing those big time.

It all depends on how much freedom you want but there is no doubt that with console gaming becoming more and more online friendly that this will be the mass market for all things entertainment...dare I say MMORPG's as well :).

so many awesome games on console.

in the upcoming titles though, most of them are also going to be on PC, although, infamous, second son, might persuade me to buy a PS4 in the end.. but Xbox 1, not a chance in hell.

Let's see, consoles only need to worry about running decently at 30 fps. Console graphics are equivalent to about med-high on the PC. Honestly, if were were to compare consoles to high-end PC's we could easily tell that a gaming rig could last 5 years without upgrades.  I use a 6 year old CPU and still am able to max out Skyrim and most MMOs (~30-60 fps) on my 22" monitor. You just gotta know how to overclock and optimize your computer to the best of your ability. Heck, I'm still running on 32-bit and if my motherboard let me overclock my CPU some more, I'd be able to do fine until the PS4 comes out.

You see the developers do not use the PC to it's full potential. You may own an I7 quad with all the latest and greatest on it but developers still make mmos like it is 1990. Low end tech and try to give it the best coat of paint possible without using the good stuff.  So if you like mmos on a pc I never saw a need to buy the best pc out there. I still think pcs are best for online rpgs, fps and rts games.

if a console only ran at 30 fps then that would be a poor job, it certainly only a 'barely acceptable' frame rate for  a PC game, particularly one thats in any way action orientated, like a shooter. I would hope that the 'next gen' of consoles could at least double that

30 and 60 fps isn't even that big of a difference for me to bother upgrading. After certain PC titles, I couldn't even get into the Demon Souls port, which is pretty much the same as on the consoles. People seem to praise consoles, but it's obvious that  the PC could output better graphics. My cousin saw me playing GTA IV on the PS3 and he couldn't get over the "no AA" part. His 30" monitor spoiled him ;)
