Re: PS4 more powerful than most PC's?

Sep 6, 2013

Your PS4 has a Cell Phone Processor in it, that's not much to brag about, oO 

 

That is most likely Equel to a Quad Core PC... 

 

There are PC's much more powerful then the PS4... 

 

--------------------------------------------------------

 

The one i'm building will have 4 Cores, 16GB of RAM, & Cross Fire Graphix... 

 

The difference between my PC & the PS4 is that mine will be a 4 Core PC Motherboard compared to a 

Cell Phone Processor on the PS4... 

 

I'll be running 5760x1080 as my Screen Resolution... 

Compared to the PS4 at UHD... 

 

Especially when Games will be 1080P on the PS4 anyways... 

 

Point is, i'm not even spending that much... 

 

------------------------------------------------

 

Last Point is, with a PC, I can go even more powerful, with Liquid Cooling, & such... 

The PS4 doesn't support that at all... ^_^ 

 

My RAM should be able to beat the PS4 RAM by being twice as good... 

And your comparing a Cell Phone Processor to a PC Processor? @_@

The thing about the intel laptop chips... ultra truth... that's all I have to say.

 

brand new laptop (for school)   has trouble running RTS games on max settings from 2007.

It may be true that most people have low end-mid range PCs but that doesn't mean that low end will be that same next year or the year after that. If anything, even low end PCs will be superior to the PS4 very soon with technology advancing at a faster rate than consoles.

As a PC and console gamer, I see the benefits of having a console and a PC. However, PC games can be more fun than their console counter parts and vice versa. In fact, BF3 is a perfect example of that. While on console we are stuck with limited amount of players and small maps, PC players have more players, bigger maps, more vehicles, and more content. Console players also have exclusives that PC players would kill for and vice versa.

You must have a lot of money to throw around then. :smileytongue:

 

I can hardly justify spending more than $300 on a PC, especially if it's just going to sit there as a Word Processor and General Internet Browser and doing school things.

 

I'll stick to my 2007 Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook I got for free off someone who didn't want it. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: PS4 more powerful than most PC's?

That's not what the original post is about. It's a steam survey that shows most pc users playing steam games have a system comparable to the ps4. Obviously plenty of people out there have a great pc rig. I used to price out water cooled over clocked systems, they weren't cheap. Here is how I look at it, console you pay 400 now and the life cycle lasts 6 years or more. Build a high end pc, probably spend more than 400,run ultra high HD graphics, two years later need to upgrade (maybe that's just ram, and maybe it's a new graphics card) to continue running really high graphics or start a slow decline into medium settings or games comparable to a console. Now if you prefer mouse and keyboard that's your preference, me I can't stand aswd controls, it cramps my hand lol. As long as people are playing games and support the industry who cares?

What i'm trying to say is that my PC that is pretty much close to what the PS4 is capable of... 

Was about the same Price as what the PS4 actually costs to buy... 
With, or without the Motherboard, I forgot... That doesn't include my Monitors,
as the PS4 has no Display that comes with it... =D

& i've seen way better PC's out there that costs a lot more then what I spent to build, 
so your talking Main Stream? 

You must be refering to People who actually bought a PC, & did not Upgrade... 
But even then, you got Duel & Quad Core PC's that are buyable now... 

What i'm trying to get at is... 

The PS4 is more like a low end on the High portion of the PC Market, no? 

And if i'm not mistaken there is a huge portion of Gamers who have much better Specs inside their PC, then what the PS4 has... 
Not a little, but a lot... 

Your talking about People who don't Game on their Computers, those People don't have High End PC's, which the PS4 out beats, yes... But again, they don't Game, lOl...

Thus a few simple reasons why we game on a ps3 and pretty soon the ps4. It is the online challenge and already tuned out games and console why I console game. The only thing I have to change/adjust is brightness and volume console gaming wise. I also game on a monitor and will be upgrading to a 24 or 26 inch come November.

Actually... The Point is, Consoles shouldn't be Competing with a PC... 

Computers can be Modified, a Console can not... 

------------------------------------------------------------------

Computers will always be ahead of Consoles... 
Because of this fact... 

But Consoles should be competing with each other, not because they are portable, but simply because they are easy to Carry, 
& you can use them on any TV... With only a few cords, & a hook up... 

With a PC, it's stuck in 1 Place... 

There are reasons for a Console to compete with a Console, it's strickly for Gamming, where as a PC is used for many things... 

But to be honest, I still feel the PS3 is better then the PS4, it lacks in RAM, but over all, I like the PS3 a lot more... 
Just my opinion...

but, they're not.

Its just a progression of technology.

Cognitive Dissonance - The ability to understand multiple viewpoints even if they conflict with one another - and still use critical thinking, logical thought, and common sense to come to the realization that only ONE is the correct one and the others are wrong.
