PC or Console - Is there a definitive winner?

It's a debate that has raged on for years, with each side having its devout followers. Does gaming on a PC or a console rule supreme? There are merits for both, but increasingly it looks like the hardcore gamers are favoring PC over its rival. 

Let's take a look at the main aspects that can dictate a gamers choice, and how it would swing in the favour of the PC.

Cost

This is the big one for most people and one area in which, initially at least, the consoles can get their noses in front of PC. The start-up costs can be much lower, with the cost of the hardware a lot less than if you were buying a top-spec gaming desktop or laptop. However, you don't always need top spec, and the upfront costs aren't all you have to think about.

When the hardware on a console becomes redundant, it's the end of the road. However, PCs are customisable and can be upgraded for smaller costs for longer. A fatal error isn't the end, a la XBox, either. This means long term you can save.

Another long-term saving is in the games. It's much cheaper to buy PC games, and often you can find them for free (yes, legally!). By the time you've bought 10-15 games, you'll have made up the initial outlay, depending on how extravagant your hardware tastes are!

No ties

You're not forced into a Playstation or XBoxmould, nor are you forced to work within their subscriptions services for online. The ability to upgrade both hardware and software so easily and the variety of uses for your machine means there's a whole world of options at your fingertips.

In terms of ties, you're not tied to a joystick either - you can use them as easy add-ons, but you have the versatility of mouse and keyboard, or the other options available to you as a PC gamer.

Depth of genres to play

Simply put, there's much more to play on your PC. You can play every type of game, from the epic MMOGs to MUDs, as well as every other type of format you see in console gaming. You can take to your browser to play, and have an infinite amount of opportunities to find something new.

Your online gaming isn't simply restricted to the games you have bought - if it gets stale, you can head to the iGaming world to bring some adrenaline back into proceedings, with a host of offerings at your fingertips. You may be enticed by the Live Casino Promotions at William Hill, and hit the blackjack or roulette tables, or even the crossover slot games, which blend arcade gaming and gambling together.

Sociability

The other main 'win' for consoles is the social aspect. PCs are mostly for single players, sat at your computer desk and being focused on the task at hand. You can plug your PlayStation into your TV and have your friends round for shoot-em-ups or soccer games. 

And maybe that's what the crux of the issue is; the hardcore gamers aren't interested in the social element, but the depth and quality, and that's why increasingly, they're going down the PC route.
