It is well known fact that gaming has changed significantly from last decaded and it will continue to change in near future with more advanced gaming in more complex gaming hardware.
This is very hot topic online and you will find various debated going on gaming forum and blogs, everyone who is interested in gaming has this question in mind that he/she should go for console gaming or PC gaming. Actually, both gaming options i.e console and PC is here since decades and this debate has been ‘going on’ since then. But in recent world with the coming of the next generation consoles like the Xbox 360 latest, Sony PlayStation 4 and the Wii, this debate has been further intensified and on fire as many hardcore console gamers have started doubting about the future of PC games online or offline. But apart from all the doubts, we have come to conclusion that PC gaming is here to stay, and is definitely going better in a lot of different ways, compared to console gaming i.e Xbox, PlayStation, etc.
As we all know that the PC is customizable and can be optimised for running various high graphics game unlike console hardware, the PC can be well customized. Meaning, that you can change or upgrade hardware as per ones requirements. Upgradation of memory, graphics, etc can be done in no time and it is very much flexible. It can be well-tuned to come under a specific budget that someone may have, and therefore you do not really need to spend huge amounts of money in buying console hardware and can still play games. We have seen that the cost for console hardware has skyrocketed in recent years, and on the other hand the steady drop in cost of computer parts have made it affordable for people to afford a computer. And to top of that, if you are not really a hardcore gamer, then you do not even need a top rated system to play your game on, even a mid range PC harware system would do just fine and it will be easy on the pocket.
We know that Console get a hardware updation every 3 years or similar. On the other hand PC is bombarded with regular hardware updates pertaining to Memory updates, Graphic cards, Processors and pretty much everything come with regular update that goes inside. It means that the graphics and hardware of PC games is evolving on a regular constant basis and giving developers of games a golden chance to push their gaming limits and develop the game which is according to latest hardware trends. On the other hand consoles gaming and hardware for consoles get updates every 4 years and this is the reason that developers of console game is limited to the availability of hardware.
This is really a remarkable factor of PC and is the strongest factor that out rank the competition with console gaming. I want to ask a simple question who is a fan of console that What do you do, when new console is released in market and the old one becomes outdated? Simple answer is either sell it, or play in old console till you afford to buy the latest console from the market. On the other hand when you have PC and you want to upgrade it to fit the recuirement of your current game then you can easily upgrate it to the latest hardware without waiting. Upgradation is also cheap and you do not have to change your all hardware. Generally upgration of RAM and graphics hardware will do the work for you.
It is clear that this type of debate cannot end and it depends on the choice of gamers. Some feels good in console and vice-versa and hardcore gamers will always vouch for the hardware that they love, but according to the evidence no one can doubt the customization and upgrade options available in PC rather than console. Consoles could be expensive but on the other hand PC is very and customizable.
