Please, I can find a 12 month gold sub for less than 2/3 than retail price easily.

Let me guess, probably from some backwater, shady as fuck, site. The difference between both of these is that the sales on PC come from legitimate retailers. On top of that, 99% of the playerbase is not going to look deeper than Amazon/their console for their subs.
#382 - twentyten (08/07/2016) [-]
Ah yes, eBay shady as fuck. I'm talking about subs here, not games. It's already obvious pc games are cheaper, but I already got a counter argument for that.

Alright, we'll say you get it for $40 instead of $60, it's still $40 you have to pay each year just to use your own internet to play online. What's this counter argument for PC games being cheaper?
#384 - twentyten (08/07/2016) [-]
I don't have to pay for, the thing people like you don't understand. It's not forced. As for the counter, I can share my digital games and still play them at the same time. Basically cut the cost in half. No need to wait for sales.

You don't have to pay for it, no. But you also don't have to pay for your games at all on PC because of pirating. To counter something with "w-well I just don't have to pay for it" is stupid. Also, Steam also has family sharing so there goes your point entirely.
#390 - twentyten (08/07/2016) [-]
You must lack some reading comprehension. I never said "w-well I just don't have to pay for it" is a counter argument cheaper games. It's a counter to your remark about "it's still $40 you have to pay each year"... I don't HAVE TO pay anything.

As for the steam family sharing:
"Can two users share a library and both play at the same time?
No, a shared library may only be accessed by one user at a time."

I'm not limited by that on consoles. "so there goes your point entirely." Haha, nope.

Someone is still essentially tasked with paying for the game, most likely full price. Then, if the game is multiplayer, someone has to have paid for a subscription to XBL/PS+. Then, you have the worse performance, lack of mods, lower resolution, the list goes on. Even if both users have to pay for it on PC, there's a damn good chance it'll come out to be less expensive than going through all these hops to play it on console. And again, you can just pirate the game on PC if this is just a race to the cheapest.

Ya I call bullshit on games being anything more than marginally higher in price. Steam isn't the only thing that has sales, PSN/XBL stores do to, plus regular game stores can have frequent sales, used copies, and the option to bring in games you don't want anymore for cash. It's not like Steam has any unique thing by having sales.

60 for online? ha, if pc gamers don't pay for full retail why would console players?
User avatar
#369 - nathanbiggs (08/07/2016) [-]
Because the cost for the subscription to Xbox Live/PS+ very rarely go on sale, the same can't be said for full PC games. Consoles are doing better with sales, but they're not as good as PC yet.

I fear you underestimate how casual I am: I'm a campaign gamer. Don't even have a ps+ account. The only online game I play is hearthstone.

Only when you pay twice as much. And I really don't care that much about how good the textures look.

Wrong again, a 750ti outperforms the PS4. It's not even about graphics, it's about mods, cost of games, steady framerates, resolutions that don't fall below that of your TV, and the freedom to use whatever controller that you want to use.

No need to be so sarcastic.
It's just pointless to do so when the Ps4 can pretty much everything anyway.
