Xbone for $400 ish when it came out, if you can find a $400 computer than fund gta V at max settings tell me
User avatar #75 - boydaranga (08/03/2015) [-]
Gta V on xbox/ps4 definately doesnt play at max settings
User avatar #76 - majestispaceduck (08/03/2015) [-]
So take off the max settings feature, and it still holds true, my $800 pc can barely run gta V
User avatar #77 - boydaranga (08/03/2015) [-]
How old is your $800 pc
User avatar #78 - majestispaceduck (08/03/2015) [-]
Year old, built it myself last September
#87 - boydaranga (08/03/2015) [-]
This setup is able to run GTA V at normal (which is pretty much how it runs on the xbone Other than Higher resolution textures and shadows from what i have personally seen)
at 1080p 30-45 fps.

964nz dollars converts to $636us Dollars also take away the large amount of retail profits this website puts on products compared to either wholesale or a retail store in the US. would probably come down to 400-500usd?

Im not really a pc mustard race kinda guy, i own an xbox and a ps3 and a two year old custom built gaming pc. Sadly for newcomers to pc builds, you really really do have to do your research and know what to look for if you want to make a competent cheap pc. ( i am guilty of this ofc, i bought a western digital green hardrive and an overclockable cpu with an unoverclockable motheboard)

But anyway, what consoles do have an advantage over pc's is garuntee to work and full optimisation meaning that devs will tweak their game for one single system and have it run properly (hopefully) where with pc's there is so many options and different setup combinations that it makes it a lot harder to optimise these games for.

I hope i didnt come off as some narcissist trying to prove you wrong.

So essentially you need significant more background knowledge on what you're using in order to cost effectively get a working product. Whereas you can get a console plug it in and go. And the console is easier to develop games for?
This console v pc stuff is getting exhausting hearing it every other week but i gotta hand it to pc, their monitors are by far the best thing to play xbox on.
User avatar #158 - boydaranga (08/04/2015) [-]
Lol ok.
#85 - hikakiller (08/03/2015) [-]
specs? my 550 dollar computer runs it great
User avatar #81 - shenro (08/03/2015) [-]
judging by the system requirements, i could easily build a pc for like 400-500 euros that can run gta 5 on atleast medium. so did you overpay for your parts or some shit.
User avatar #84 - majestispaceduck (08/03/2015) [-]
I am including monitor in price that's some of it
User avatar #86 - shenro (08/03/2015) [-]
then to make it fair, shouldnt you include the price of a TV or monitor for a console aswell? that would make a pc better once again. oh and good monitors cost like 100 euros so it still looks like you overpaid..
User avatar #65 - majestispaceduck (08/03/2015) [-]
That being said though I do prefer pc but the similar price BS is just that BS
#69 - anon (08/03/2015) [-]
Bigger hard drive, more memory, mods, access to an internet browser, keyboard and mouse, a lot more things at the touch of your fingers. PC's are clearly more advanced than consoles and do a hell of a lot more things than consoles, which is why they cost more and which is why I prefer PC.
User avatar #72 - majestispaceduck (08/03/2015) [-]
He was trying to compare them by price though. Not parts and capabilities.
#79 - hikakiller (08/03/2015) [-]
A lot of people say
'For $400 i can build a gaming pc that can do what an xbox one can do'
But that's simply not true. www.youtube.com/watch?v=IHogNolObqk

They serve their purpose. They are computing powerhouse like the device designed to be so (a PC). They are devices designed to entertain via games or video or music. They do not require expensive top of the line hardware. They are made with decent hardware at the time that can be built to scale, and can't really update the hardware in a timely fashion.
User avatar #59 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
Oh man the blind love is real.

"They serve their purpose" Sure, and if I sold you a rock tied to a string that bounced up and down for 200$ and said "it's a fun toy!" doesn't make it any fucking good.

And if you had any ability to read, you'd understand that, sure, they do not require expensive top of the line hardware, but when its sole purpose is to do that ONE thing, than it should really have the best available. Also at the price point of current consoles, getting a PC at the same price is immediately 5 times better simply into terms of hardware. Using shitty 50$ dollar GPUs and 35$ processors and packing it all up with a 5$ PSU and selling it for 400$ is ridiculous.

And no, they are not built with decent hardware at the time, at the day of launch, the GPUs on the consoles were already outdated by nearly half a year... That's pretty fucking huge. It's all just a cash cow ploy to suck up money from idiots who are too stupid to do research and think about the products they buy.
User avatar #80 - elsenortamatoe (08/03/2015) [-]
You are still missing my point. Its like saying a truck is better than a compact car in terms of power. They are two different things. A console is a toy. Its a toy with a computer in it. The computer has to be just powerful enough to run its games, and nothing more. A PC is an actual computing device, and is more powerful. You are paying for hardware with a PC, and you are paying for convenience with a console.
User avatar #90 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
I don't see why a console is really any more convenient. If anything a PC is, since you can simply alt tab to do other stuff.

And yes of course you can compare a truck to a car, but only in restricted terms.
If both vehicles are at the same price point (this includes gas milage) and equally as convenient. (It's pretty much a fact that a PC is a lot more convenient, but we'll just say they're equal for the sake of argument), then there's literally no reason to get the truck that can lift more for the same price, than the car that can lift less, can't be upgraded over time, and can only hold 2 people.

And really, you can't compare PCvsConsole to CarvsTruck because they're vastly different. A console literally has a 'sorta-PC' inside it. Which is why your last sentence is very fucking ignorant. Consoles literally have a computer inside them. It's not some other magical gizzmo. It's a computer. It's pretty much identical to a PC, except for a few different wiring properties, and the OS.
Repeat with me, a console is still a computer. Even the GPUs and processors are almost identical to the ones you buy to hook up to your PC except with a few custom design differences to get it to fit inside the console case.
User avatar #93 - elsenortamatoe (08/03/2015) [-]
Want to play a game on a console? put it in and go. No other steps needed. that is convenient.
User avatar #94 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
Hahahaha.

And what do you do on a PC? Hack into the pentagon to access your game?
You don't even have to bother getting up and taking the disc from the case, you just right click steam or whatever and click on the fucking game's name. BAM your game is open.

Also, nice cop out to the rest of the argument, friend.
Try again.
User avatar #96 - elsenortamatoe (08/03/2015) [-]
You still don't understand my point.
One is a toy with a computer in it
The other is a computer
Each one serves its purpose well, but you can't expect something that is designed to be more powerful to be comparable to the other. Its apples and oranges.
User avatar #97 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
So... despite both being the exact same thing, but one can do less than the other, yet costing MORE, you still think it makes more sense to buy it.

Yeah right. You know, it's a lot more honourable to just admit you made a mistake, then to keep fighting and looking like a fool, friend.
User avatar #99 - elsenortamatoe (08/03/2015) [-]
I will reiterate. ONE IS A TOY THE OTHER IS A TOOL.
YOU CANNOT TAKE A TOY HAMMER TO A HAMMER AND CONSIDER THEM EQUAL ENOUGH TO COMPARE THEM.

And ease up on the "honourable" crap, makes you sound pretentious. There is no mistake, one is a toy for games, the other is a tool that can play games. You are the one fighting for nothing and looking like a fool, and that is a mistake.
User avatar #101 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
Your comparison implies that a console cannot play a game, only pretend to.

If we take a mallet and hammer, and compare them, then that makes sense. Both can hammer nails, yet one is more ergonomic, and even has that little bit at the end to pull out the nail. Now, what if the mallet was more expensive than the hammer that's just simply BETTER. Is there any real reason to buy it?
#113 - anon (08/03/2015) [-]
I think what he is trying to get at is that for someone who is not tech savy, a console is a great choice.

You simply pop a disk in, or if you get fancy, download it from the console's store, and play your game. This is from first time running it, you don't necessarily have to install or download the game from the disc unless there are updates to it.

You can also watch movies and listen to music on a console. They're made to be a one stop entertainment item, and like else said, a computer is more of a tool, like a Swiss Army Knife, it has all the tools needed but it also has the added bonus of a corkscrew for some fun later.

Most people who own a computer from my experience use it to go online or use it for work entering data and making documents, not for gaming.

I play games both on pc and console and when I want to play a new game with no hassle, I go with console because I simply don't want to wait the time it takes to download/install the game.

Steam is a great way to game, plus the sales and things, but if you have shitty internet it's not a simple matter of quickly downloading a game and playing. It becomes hours of I just bought this game and now I have to wait for it to download before I can play it and I wanted to play it sooner rather than later.

Both have their qualities. PC has the opportunity to be a great gaming machine if you know what you are doing(and some people don't), but a console is already a gaming machine.
User avatar #104 - elsenortamatoe (08/03/2015) [-]
If we are going to make an accurate comparison, It would be like a sports car vs a regular car. Both will get you from A to B but one is a better ride. It has more power, is smoother, and looks nicer. The price tags are also high, the sports car being slightly higher. If you can afford the sports car, that would be ideal.
But if you can't the other car is fine for getting from point A to point B. That is its purpose. Nothing more, nothing less.
User avatar #106 - FlameBreaker (08/03/2015) [-]
You don't get it. In this case the regular costs more.
That's the whole problem. I'd understand someone settling for the console if it were cheaper and they rather not drop the money on a PC, but right now, a PC with better specs than a PS4 or Xbone costs LESS than the consoles. It's just insanity.
Were you just not reading what I wrote, man?

Also on another hand, having a laptop or SOME kind of computer in a house hold is almost a necessity, so you're probably going to drop another 200-300 AT LEAST on a computer too, anyways.
