Hi 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.

mmorpg on consoles is just bad in terms of control, you need to type and console doesnt work with that. That aside you also are heavily limited in terms of buttons so things like the classic mmorpg with 20+ skills would never work out. Next thing UI mods -who is going to write addons on a console? noone. Then voicechat, forget about your private server, you either voicechat if the game provides it or you don't. Overall i dont see playing mmorpgs on consoles.

The PS4 is just a PC that plugs into your TV.  It's really not much different... IMO it's about time the PC dies.  One less thing we need to spend money on for upgrades all the time.

I'm definitely getting a PS4.

If they provide keyboard support for their MMOs, I'll definitely consider purchasing MMOs on the PS4 as well.

However, you really can't get a better experience for single player games than on a PC...one word: Mods.

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

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

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.

*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.

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.

Well if you usually spend thousands on PCs then those PCs will stil be a shit load better than the PS4 or xbox..

They will be capable of a lot better graphcs and now that the consoles are based on a PC platform that means games will be easier to port and setup to look a lot better with the hardware available to PC users. PCs are also capable of donig many things that consoles cant..

I would say that now is prob one of the best times to own a PC for gaming.

Of course it's worth it, a properly built PC is a superior machine by far.

My gaming PC is now about ~2 years old.

To fully update it to "modern" hardware would cost me about 700 dollars (new mobo, processor, video card).

I'm currently a couple generations behind - AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE and Radeon 6870 1GB

I could spend that 700 dollars and miss out on tons of console exclusives, since it seems like ALL the PC games are going console now.

Or I could spend 400$ on a new PS4 and be good to go for the next 7-8 years.

I am seriously amazed at what the PS3 and XBOX 360 are capable of pushing out (graphically) this late in their life cycle.

When I compare like Halo 3 to Halo 4 the difference is staggering.

 

If PS4 does blue tooth and/or has USB ports and is capable of using mouse/keyboard - there is no point to a gaming PC.

I have a smart phone, windows 8 tablet, and laptop through work.

Going to be REALLY hard for me to justify a new gaming PC anytime in the future...

I actually prefer playing games with a controller from my couch now anyway.

The days of hunching over a keyboard for hours on end, for me, are pretty much over.

Only reason I still have a gaming PC is MMOs - and now? Only two games I'm really waiting on are both coming to PS4.

They won't be the last.

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

PSO2 is another one and i would just get both, i cant see myself playing fallout or skyrim without mods. Even that one rpg The Last Remnant had a better pc version than the xbox 360 one.

Somehow I never had the urge to own a console. I mean: there are so many awesome games on PC, why would I need a console?

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)
