Why does PC hardware for gaming cost so much more than console gaming machines?
Sorta off topic, but I'll say that in general, PC games don't look better than consoles.
Most PC games are written to the lowest common denominator, your MX440 or whatever.
Sure, everyone here will name the top 5-10 PC games that look great, but will ignore the other 150.
Selection. There's seriously like 5-10 PC games I want to /currently play now. There at least 2-3x that on consoles.
I'll just say that a console is a far better deal money wise. Buying $300 video cards, upgrading processors and memory to play PC games seems like a waste when I can have a "good enough" ( if not better ) experience on a console.
