VorpeHD says When the Xbone 360 and PS3 launched they were as good as high end PC's, but when the Xbone One and PS4 launched they were as good as low-med end PC's

    I doubt they'd ever die. I feel consoles and gaming PCs serve different purposes and will always have their own fans. Consoles offer decent gameplay and graphics for a very affordable price and take the hassle out of ensuring how a game will run regardless of its requirements etc. Meanwhile, gaming PCs are great for people who enjoy playing games at much higher settings and who don't mind the paying extra money for the added performance and possibly because they're after something that offers more than just gaming and multimedia. Also, I don't recall any console ever being near the equivalent of a "high end PC" of its time, as you claim. Its also worth noting that when GTA 5 was released, it took more than a year or two for it to be released on PC (as with many other games), so if anything I think one can argue that consoles are definitely not dying.

    I don't disagree with you but, first off, if your PC is good enough then you don't need to check requirements and it only takes a second regardless, Your getting a lot more with gaming like mods, servers, and cheaper game prices for the price, and the Xbone and PS3 were dam near high end pc performance this is because PC's weren't as good as they are now, i hate when everyone doesn't realize this but it also took a year for GTA 5 to release on the next gen systems, developers have to do work to better the game for the platform, the PC version has a lot more than the next gen version so it took awhile, btw you can build a PC at the price as consoles with the same performance and the benefit of a pc, 1 last thing, the PS1 was WAY better than any PC, the PS2 and Xbone original were better than the highest end consumer PC, the You see the pattern? Consoles are getting worse by the generation and/or PC's are getting better. The next gen after PS4/Xbone will be as good as a low end 2015 PC

    The thing is that a good enough PC isn't cheap. For most people there's almost always gonna be some sort of bottleneck performance based on how balanced and high performance their PC is, which is why with consoles that's not something many gamers need to worry about. That being said, I do agree that a high performance PC outperforms a console in this day and age, but I wanted to point out some of the reasons as to why console won't be going away anytime soon for the average gamer. After all, for most people there's hardly any noticeable difference between 30fps and 60fps (just using that as an example), and for those people, aka people who just wanna play the game and aren't fussed about performance, console gets the job done at a very affordable price.

    www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZR-a35sxLg and better pre-built PC's are becoming more affordable while consoles will have the same hardware for the next decade, if you build a PC you can save up to %60-%80 rather than buying pre-built ones, bottleneck only happens when idiots put high end hardware with low end hardware, 30 FPS and 60 FPS are really different, idk why other people can't see it, it'snot that much a hassle to deal with performance issues unless your pc is sh*t, like how people say you'll need to upgrade every time a new game comes out (which is the dumbest thing i ever heard). You';; only need to upgrade every 4+ years, PC Gaming = You pay more initially but save thousands long term, Console Gaming = You pay less initially but long term it costs more, don't believe me? It's been proven, steam games are cheaper and you don't need to pay an online subscription service.

    Keep in mind I'm a PC gamer myself and actually own a high performance gaming PC so I'm more than aware of its performance advantages over a console. I was simply pointing out that due to the reasons I mentioned, consoles won't be going away anytime soon due to their simplicity and affordability that they offer for people who don't mind not playing at the highest settings etc. As far as the frame rate thing is concerned, I completely agree, there is a huge difference between 30 and 60 no doubt about that, BUT for many gamers out there, 30 is considered ok and playable. At the end of the day, some of it also comes down to preference and some people being loyal to one or the other for a long time.

    I just realized you're in Australia, and i know PC hardware prices over there are really expensive, but in the US you can build a PC the same Price as a new PS4 with the same performance, with each generation comes more outdated hardware and becoming more PC like, as installing games now instead of just putting the disc in and just play like the old days
