PC vs. Xbox 360

PC vs. Xbox 360

This debate has been going on for a while, but is still inter­est­ing to con­sid­er.  What is the supe­ri­or gam­ing plat­form? PC or the 360…  What­ev­er way you lean, there’s no deny­ing that Microsoft has got a vice grip on these mar­kets throats, but they do deserve some praise, no mat­ter how much they extend their dreams of a full blown monop­oly.  Obvi­ous down­sides to the 360 are; Xbox live fee, can Microsoft not make enough mon­ey though adver­tis­ing on Xbox live to elim­i­nate this fee?  Also the inabil­i­ty to upgrade hard­ware with the 360 is a huge down­side.  Beside a few months fol­low­ing its release, the 360 is no longer cut­ting edge, although com­pared to a top of the line gam­ing rig the 360 is rel­a­tiv­i­ty cheap, and could be con­sid­ered more user friend­ly for new gamers to jump in and get to da gam­ming.  The PC is more expen­sive, that’s a giv­en, but offers many options for upgrad­ing and cus­tomiza­tion.  There is also the gam­ing expe­ri­ence to con­sid­er, many peo­ple, myself includ­ed, pre­fer to play fsp’s on the PC because of the feel­ing of bet­ter con­trol with a mouse (arm, wrist, hand, fin­ger move­ments) as com­pared to a 360 con­troller (thumb and fin­ger move­ments).  But some­one that grew up play­ing more con­sole games most like­ly would pre­fer to use the 360 con­troller than a mouse.  Let’s hear what you think, which is supe­ri­or and an over­all more enjoy­able gam­ing expe­ri­ence?

    I enjoy my 360, but like death­proof said the xbox live fees are a bit ridicu­lous con­sid­er­ing microsofts rev­enue and incom­ing cash flow from soft­ware & hard­ware. In my opin­ion its a bit of a greed thing and I think they would do well to pro­vide xbox live as a free ser­vice. For instance Im not gonna pay a fee to play online with my 360 when I can play online for free on my PS3. And as far as PC vs Xbox360 goes, PC FTW when it comes down to raw pow­er, cus­tomi­sa­tion, and graph­i­cal supu­ri­or­i­ty. But of course it comes at a cost.

    x box wins hands down. I love gam­ing on the x box. I havent tried too much gam­ing on the pc most­ly cause it does­nt appeal to me that much. I hear its faster and eas­i­er to con­troll but I am just old school and rather do it on the x box. Thats what she said. The fees are kind of pricey but I got­ta go where the gamers go. Rust­Nut out!
