Hi, i am actually living a big debate in my head and i need opinion from other peoples. I heard that this community is one of the most helpfull so i decided to give it a try. I don't know if i should get a ps4  or get a gaming PC by the end of the years.

 

I will explain a little bit my situation first :

 

I am the type of guy that need to have a game to play in his spare time wither for break when i study or to just pass time at home when i have nothing to do, othwerwise i get crazy and now i have nothing!! In three years i bought 1 MacBook pro that cost 2300 $ and the cpu broke after 1 yr and 1 month off guaranty (in the first year the screen broke twice not from abuse), after i bought a sony vaio 1000 $ that broke after 1 years and 2 month  was again the CPU. Now i have a Lenovo P580  that i bought for 550 $ but it is really cheaply made  the pin of the screen keep on breaking so i don't give my laptop a really long time before i need to change it again... In the last year i owned a Ps3 wich i really liked but i sold it recently thinking it would be the best time if i didn't want too loose too much money on it and go for a Ps4.

 

So as you can see i am really unlucky with electronic and buying a Ps4 that should last 5-6 years make me anxious since if it break i will have to spend the same amount of money again ... So i went and check how much would cost a PC that would give me the same or more performance than a Ps4 and went with this : http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/rogun12/saved/2NoC but it cost a lot of money.

 

So i am really hesitant between, buying a ps4 and spent the money i save on a laptop like the ideapad y410p (750$) that will let me play game like metro last light, dark souls 2, black desert or bless that i won't be able to play on ps4 or buy a good gaming PC that will let me play most of the 2014 games (BUT NOT DESTINY :*(((()  and buy a really cheap laptop only for school. Paying for a costly laptop + a ps4 make me anxious because if it break i need to spend a lot of money and a PC is reparable for low cost but i kind of like the feeling of a console.

 

So what you think of it ?

 

thanks

I'm not much on consoles, so I would say get a computer. The best bet is to build your own, that way you know that it has the quality of components you desire.

You can buy a computer on line and have it built for you. I just bought a laptop from CyberpowerPC and I'm very happy with it. They also build desktop gamers.

You can also upgrade a computer with newer and better components. Don't think you can do that with consoles. :blink:

 

So there is my opinion, don't know if it will help, but you have it anyway :)

If you're getting a gaming PC, you really need a desktop, not a laptop.  A desktop is more upgradable and generally a better value.  That said, a PS4 is also a good value as it is really difficult to find a PC for $399 that do everything a PS4 can do.  Unless you are willing to spend $700 USD or more on a desktop PC, a PS4 would be the better deal for now.

Oh, didn't people answered, well after getting information from multiple others peoples i think i will go for the ps4. Basically buying a computer + a monitor would cost me 1000 $ dollars (850 $ for the pc 150 for the monitor), a lot more than a ps4. The thing that made me change my choice was simply if i get a PC of that price i will have to upgrade it in 2-3 years to be able to play with good graphic, and i don't want to spend more money on the PC in a few years. 

 

So i think my best choice is to buy a ps4 and a budget gaming pc that will let me play the few game i want that won'T be on the ps4 like dark soul 2 otherwises i won't play on it.

get a ps4, the games will never need to be optimized to run on the hardware. If you want a gaming PC you might want to wait until the steam console is released. http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamMachines/

Well... A PS4 has seriously badass hardware. And it ranged from £350 in GBP (My Local currency). However, My PC is still using a asus motherboard from 2008, with 8GB ram and a quad core processor, and it was rubbish at first.  Then I invested £150 into a Nividea GeForce GTA 650Ti (Pretty decent GPU), and now I can run so many games benchmarked, for example; Bioshock Infinite, skyrim, battlefield 4 etc.

 

I personally would recommend a PC since its endless customization and improvement.
