I know most people will say pc's are better suited to handle mmo graphics and are preferred for mmo gameplay.  But I am really enjoying FF14 on ps3 and previously I played FF11 on ps2.  I just prefer a console to play a game then a pc.  With ESO coming out for ps4 and likely EQN on ps4...there is no real incentive to buy an expensive new pc.  The only reason I ever really bought pc's before was to play MMOs.  Now it seems like the console is able to handle mmos rather well.  I think thats a good thing as it suits my preferred playstyle.  My pc is 6 years old and instead of having to buy a new one for $1500+ I can just get a ps4 for however much it costs...prolly $500-600.  I bet blizzards Titan will even release on console.

1) Two/Three-boxing seems kinda difficult on a console or tablet. :P

2) More than 1 screen is easy to handle. I have internet on one screen, maps on another and main game on center or this

3) Depending on the game, Razor Tarantula Keyboard and Lachesis Mouse set up with Macro's etc. Making certain tasks easy peasy. FOr shooters going from 4000dpi - 400dpi or macroing going from sniper to pistol in 1 button press is pretty sweet without key ghosting.

4) With SSD drives, game loading times are almost non-existent now.  

5) PC based VOIP. 

There are many more reasons but I'll stop there.

Whatever you think you will get the most use out of is the answer. If you think the MMO's you plan on playing will be on PS4 then you're safe there. I plan on getting a ps4 but I still have a PC suitable for gaming. Good luck.

I pretty much only have a budget for one or the other...and I prefer the less expensive option.  ALso I have not the skills to build my own pc...and a prebuilt for $500? Prolly get a  barebones system with minimal specs that will be outdated in a couple years.  I really don't know anything about pc hardware.

So yea, there are definite advantages to the pc, but I am a more casual player and can do my  map/quest lookups on the old pc while I am playing ps3/ps4.  I don't multi box so that is a non issue for me.  Eventually, if the Saviour of MMOs ever appears...maybe I'll get a new pc for that.  But the second coming is prolly pretty far off...if ever.

PS4 is cheaper for the same amount of power. However, you do not get STEAM.

I agree with you on most points.

I still prefer to have a gaming PC and a console. If that is not an option for you then go PS4 IMO. I am currently playing no MMOs on my PC, but playing FF and D3 on my PS3.

I use my PC more for movies and single player games now than anything.  I must say tho playing games like Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, ect on my 47" TV with max PC graphics in DX11 beats the hell out of any console. Wired x box controller and a recliner with PC graphics is the way to play most single player games for me now days.

For what it's worth I knew nothing about building PC's until I decided to build one. With a few guides I found online I knocked it out no sweat and it still runs great. People on here can school you about hardware.

If you liked PC but were worried about price I could point out that for the price of a new console you could likely upgrade an existing rig which you wouldn't have to worry about upgrading for a long time, but it seems like you answered your own question.

The above is my personal opinion. Anyone displaying a view contrary to my opinion is obviously WRONG and should STHU. (neener neener)

Depending on how many games you buy, you come out ahead with pc due to all the game sales in the long run.

Normally I'd recommend a PC, but with a 400-500$ budget it'll never last you long, where as if you're lucky the new console generation might go on for another 6 years.


Get the PS4, it'll stay relevant a lot longer then a useless 400-500$  computer.

On PC you dont have to pay for multiplayer access (excluding some mmos)  and games are much cheaper so it is more cost effective in the long run. Although if you wont buy many games it shouldnt matter.

If you're already convinced, why are you asking us?

'Sandbox MMO' is a PTSD trigger word for anyone who has the experience to know that anonymous players invariably use a 'sandbox' in the same manner a housecat does.

No game is more fun than the one you can't play, and no game is more boring than the one you've become familiar with.

Start with a billion dollars and make an MMO.

So you don't need a PC at all? What about homework, if you are at school? Text editor/Powerpoint/Excel etc. for work?

If you are doing anything serious on a computer, then you need a PC. Of course, you can get away with a very cheap PC that can't really be used for gaming, but most people will need a PC, whether they have a console or not.

I just prefer to have one machine for all, but that's just me.

It depends on what you're going to do with it.  If all you want to do is play single-player games using a gamepad, then get the PS4.  If you want to do things that you really need a keyboard and/or mouse for, then get a PC.  While you can plug in a keyboard and/or mouse into a PS4, software written for PC can assume that everyone has them, while software written for PS4 cannot.

Also, if you have ideas about playing MMORPGs on the machine, go with a PC.  While a handful of MMORPGs will come to PS4, it is highly probable that most MMORPGs will remain PC-only.  I wouldn't be surprised in the slightest if three years from now, there are more MMORPGs for Android than for PS4--and if there are decently capable $200 Android consoles that can run those Android MMORPGs.

If you want to play a lot of games the PC is a better choice. Because unless money isn't an issue you are going to have to spend more per game on a PS4. Not counting the insane steam sales, many PC games release for a cheaper price. If you prefer a gamepad, that's also not an issue. Feel like an MMO? Well you'll have a ton to try out on the PC. Not including being able to participate in beta's and what not. 

Spending a bit more now on a PC will pay off in the end as your savings on games alone will be worth it. Plus, you'll be able to play all the releases for years to come at console quality or more, and you can even simply upgrade your graphics card down the line to improve it further. Before the next gen of consoles comes out I might add.

For some people, mod's dont play a factor. But obviously thats a big strong point for PC's.

The biggest bonus a console has is that games are typically tailored to it. Which means less bugs. I myself rarely have bugs in my games. Plus, I have almost no loading times. I use an 360 controller for some games and back to keyboard and mouse for others. 

So all in all, just my personal opinion and I'm not a fanboy, for me its about logic, I'd go PC. I'd console for the exclusives ONLY. So if they are that important to you, all the more power to you.
