well i have all 3.... PC/Xbox/PS... out of the 3 i use them pretty equally.

HOWEVER.. either PC or PS4 is what you should get depending on your preferance. i will try to explain...

First off, for me......

Xbox One i use mostly because i already had a XBL Gold account long before Playstation Plus was even a thing, with me activating that account around the Halo 2 Release. as a result, i have not really seen any desire to add another subscription... Any game i will be playing online i play on my Xbox One simply because thats the system i have the online subscription for. Console exclusives have been very few between and honestly apart from the better support in reguards to things like Mods and Crossplatform play, i would probably have never gotten the Xbox One in the first place... also there was scalebound that i was looking forward too... so ya... bit of a disappointment...

My PC is far from high end... its pretty old and cannot run most AAA games... however i have found endless amounts of small games and even many bigger games that run on it. In the cases of MMOs its my system of choice, along with most F2P games like World of tanks and Crossout. I do wish i had the funds to build a good PC, as if you build a PC that can run on the true High end of games today, it will last about as long as a console generation will without fault. Trust me when i say that if you really do have the money, PC is the master race.

PS4 is by far the most popular this generation (besides the Switch) for good reason. it has all the big titles you can get on PC and Xbox, and far more good exclusives. Including JRPGs which are not as common to find on PC and non existent on Xbox One, Western Developers are also creating games for the system, with Horizon Zero Dawn being a good recent example.. If you are not going to drop the high price for a PC, a PS4 slim is your best bet.

now... to expand on why the Slim over the "pro" or even getting a Xbox One X... simply put if you are going to drop money like that for better graphics... you are better served spending even more on a PC... overall there is little to no use in those small upgrades that are not totally eclipsed by the jump to PC.





Out of them, Ps4 is the best value and you will get a huge amount of milage out of it. PC is the best choice overall but most expensive by a huge factor (if you want it to last at the least).. Xbox one just sort of exists.

for the PC, build similar to the Consoles as your starting line... 8 Core CPU, 8gb of ram, and a graphics card equal to a Nvidia 1050 is the low end. from there you want to upgrade your Graphics card as high as your budget can afford. PC can be easily upgraded at a later date, with replacing the GPU and Ram being extremely simple ways of extending the life of a PC.

so.. there it is... my suggestions, PC if you have the money (1k min suggested) PS4 if you dont want to break the bank but want the most you can get.

idk if this topic is still relevant, but i hope this helps!

If you want to get a PS4 pro now might be a good time to buy. It is $340 at the moment at costco + $25 off $250 purchase (coupon code they have available in store or through customer service).

$315 + $6 shipping .. I think it's a good deal if you want a 1440p console system instead of 1080p

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8LuF0Vpk7GI watch this to get an idea of how important 4 vs 6 cores is in gaming. we're not at the point where you need 8 to get decent framerates. we're not at a point where the CPU is a huge deal to most gamers. get an i5 that was released within the last 3 years and you're fine.
Also note how well the Athlon X4 950 holds up. that thing is essentially a re-released piece of trash from AMD's FX series, just compatible with AM4 motherboards. it's bottlenecking that 1070 but -still- getting 70 fps minimum in For Honor.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nEz0ysFjzGU watch this to see how things scale on intel vs ryzen and core count as well. PUBG's pretty popular so might be of interest to you.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMFd0aVhVKU I7 from 6 years ago vs This generation. it's holding out just fine in gaming. Productivity not so much.
