I love PC, but there are so many differences between "Steve's" and "Bob's" computer that games have to include all the possiblilites. With a console, if it is made for Xbox, everyone's Xbox has the same chipset (or at least should... LOL), so the game can be optimized better.

I put PC as number one, cuz if you have all the money you want, you can play super awesome games at such high qualities that a console would never reach.

But in other people's cases, we usually don't have all that money, so an Xbox is good.

e.x. Doom 3 has certain tweaks and hacks used for the Xbox because everyone that plays Doom 3 on the Xbox will be able to incorporate those things. But for PC, Doom 3 will have to include all types of chipsets and such in the programming and prolly wont use tweaks and hacks to speed up the games...

#1 PC
#2 Xbox
#3 PS2
#4 'Cube
#5 Dreamcast
#6 PS

(PSX?? is that the one that Sony made just for Japan, at least for now? it has the TiVo features??) If so, then put PSX at #3 and move the rest down one.

Well, it was hard to decide between PC and XBOX. XBOX is made to be a gaming device however PCs are just so good. Although most people say XBOX doesn't have enough games, that's true, but practically all it's games are super good.

I think many consols do a great job at gaming, but the problem is that this is all they do ... Many people have a PC and a decent high end graphics card costs aprox. the same as a console... So why not have a all-in-one box? ... Besides, the resolution of a normal TV for gaming? I don't think so ...

So, voted PC

PC is the best gaming device! I like it because we don't have to buy memory sticks/cards to save games like video game consules. The graphics is better on PC than video game consules.

PC will always be superior to any gaming console now or in the future. For example, with a PC you can run an emulator an "have" any of the consoles sold so far (Atari, Coleco, NES, N64, Lynx, Gamegear, Sega, Genesis, Arcades, GameCube, PS1/2, and so on...).

Also, the always increasing computing and processing speeds will allow future PCs to emulate any of the current consoles at even faster speeds so no difference with the "real" console is noticeable.

PC with PSX Pad USB device = win :)

I got one of those a few months ago... They are an awesome product (and only $35AU). Better than paying the $150+ AU for a joystick/gamepad.

i deffinatly say pc, because its always updateble to have the greatest speeds and graphics plus you can use an adapter to use any game counsils controller but i like the surround sound and the ability to use a x controller which is the duplicate of using an actual arcade controller , :) well thats my thoughts

This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But, it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

If you're looking for the best of the best of the best and money is not an option, then the PC is the best, hands down. However, PCs are so expensive and new and better PCs are constantly coming out, so often one feels that he or she is behind. I have a computer that I paid about 10x the amoutn of my PS2, and even though it was a few years ago, the computer still can't play games nearly as complex/visually impressive/fast games. Also, with a console, you could always be playing and doing other computer stuff on a PC at the same time. Lastly, lots of TVs are way bigger than any computer monitor I have ever seen, and most people dont want to drag their PCs around to the nearest TV every time they want to play a game or buy an S-video or component adapter.

BTW you gotta love the Linux developer kit for PS2 :) .

How about the XBOX2 guys?
But, sadly XBOX2 cannot be converted to a PC as it deliberately uses non-standard components(unlike the XBOX).

I agree 2 u Tokugawapants.
But console buyers buy it,not for the price or variation,but ease of use,no upgradation,no hassels in general!
