PROS AND CONS
TO THE DIFFERENT
Millions of people around the world routinely engage in
video game play. Choice of gaming platform is a decision
every gamer must make. Personal computers and gaming
consoles are among the most popular platforms, and message
boards and gaming forums often light up with debate
about which is best. Choice of platform is a matter of personal
preference, and the decision may come down to what
makes PC gaming and console gaming different.
One of the biggest advantages of PC gaming is that gamers
have the ability to customize their systems. Gamers can purchase
custom PCs built exclusively for gaming, or gamers
can modify their existing computers with various components.
According to the boutique computer manufacturer
Velocity Micro, most standard gaming computers can be
upgraded depending on need and want.
It’s important to note that customization may be a disadvantage
for people who lack technical skills. PC gamers typically
need more technical skills than console gamers, as they
will need to set up a PC’s hardware or drivers. PC gaming
may turn out to be more expensive than console gaming as
individuals customize and upgrade performance.
Many PC gamers also are drawn to the graphics of these
systems. Many gamers feel that consoles cannot compete
with high-end CPUs and GPUs. High frame rates, advanced
textures, ray tracing, and custom resolutions are hallmarks
of gaming PCs. But it’s important to note that some video
games can only be played on a console, which means players
won’t be able to enjoy those awesome graphics on some
of their favorite games.
Ease of use draws legions of fans to gaming consoles,
which are designed to be plug and play. That means everything
gamers need to get started is right in the box. Set-up
typically is simple, and software updates are handled automatically
when the console is paired with a wireless router
Consoles also cost less than customized PCs and may be
used for various applications beyond game play, such as
streaming movies, music and television shows, according to
Crucial, a computer-memory manufacturer. Then again, the
savings realized on the system may be negated by the higher
cost of console games compared to their PC equivalents.
Historially, PC gaming has been considered the best option
for online multiplayer games, but consoles have closed the
gap. Many players have consoles, which makes it easier
for friends to play with one another if they have the same
console system. However, few consoles and games support
cross-platform capability, so that’s a factor gamers must
take into consideration.
Gamers must make some tough decisions concerning which
gaming platform fi ts their needs best.
