Well as alot of u know ive been out of the pc scene for some time and have not been gaming. Due to various reasons but alot of the time my pc hasnt been operating or just not able to play the game due to low grade parts just to get me by. I was having a conversation the other day on mohawk n seems some of u r not big fans of consoles. Im keen to hear everyones points, pros, cons, opinions and so forth. Im a keen gamer as most of u know n i know what alot of the obvious objections may be, eg poorer standard of graphics n difficult controls ect but really wanna try n get past the obvious n understand what stops some of u from enjoying alternate platform gaming...

I think both ps3 and xbox both offer excelent gameplay, equally as much as pc. I believe it was Te that said u cant shoot with a controller but i think thats a pro for consoles because everyone is limited to those controls n therefore making a very even playing field. The same goes for the graphics, everyone has the same level of detail so no one else playing can see further, clearer or in any other way any better. When it comes down to it i dont think it should be a question of controls or graphics but more about the gameplay.

I will admit that bc2 isnt the best game for comparison only because of how glitchy it was at first and in my opinion still needs some minor smoothing over. The fact that the ingame voip doesnt function or doesnt funtion properly on pc frustrates me because communication is the key to success in games like bc2 n 2142. Mohawk is good, same with ventrillo but it would be nice to have a fully working ingame voip so that all players can communicate with ease. But for a game like COD (any of em, theyre all the bloody same! lol) the game itself plays virtually no different to that on pc, i ranked up on all 3 platforms n my gameplay was rarely different from platform to platform.
I do find the console gaming community to be not as confronting as pc gamers tho but in saying that if any of u know xbox u have "a rep" on ur profile that list peoples opinions on ur gaming. 26% of people prefere to play with me or have not submitted a review n 74% avoid me due to 3 reasons. 1. unncessecary communication - 18% 2. agressive gameplay - 18% and 3. Unsporting behavour 46%. most of my friends have their %s round the other way lol so not many people like gaming against me!

Anyway i hope ive given everyone some food for thought n look forward to hearing back from all of u :-)

I was brought up with Personal Computers. Commodore 64 was my first Pc. I think Pc's are a better tool for gaming since there so universal plus I love tinkering with the performance and hardware not to mention I dispise the control pad. The control pad is inferior and not really designed for First Person Shooters in mind. First Person Shooters were born/designed with mouse and keyboard in mind and RTS games so naturally my chosen platform is PC. However arcade/platform/racing games do play well on console plus it's a much cheaper alternative to gaming but FPS's will never play as well on console as oposed to PC in my opinion.

have to agree with the dman there rockets, my brother is a console freak, he stopped playing pc after bf2142, im sure u guys remember him. u name the 360 game, and hes got it, anything from lord of the rings conquest to assassins creed 2 to bc2, mw2, avp, to kung fu panda.he tried to get me to play some of the halo series with him, i could never nail the controls, i cannot aim with my thumb, it feels so inferior, i need my wrists movement if i got any chance
Also some games wont let you set a desired key to what u wish, the setup for keys is preconfigured on those controllers, whereas on a pc i got 110 plus buttons to pick whatever i want them to be, and im a lefty, so i even tried the southpaw configuration on the xbox controller, just doesnt work.
as far as rpg games and racing, i regularly use my playstation for some final fantasy, gran tourismo or snowboarding, great fun.
i also know that you can get controllers for pcs, but can you get a mouse and keyboard for an xbox?

I like Peteys point about the setup of the keys. Consoles do lack that n sometimes it would be nice to be able to set them urself. A perfect example is with cod and bc2 on xbox. Nothing worse when u switch from cod to bc2 and u go to knife someone by pressing down on the right thumb stick and all u do is crouch infront of em! lol Halo was a shit game in my opinion n is a disgrace to fps's!

Games on consoles Merrik now have full look ability just as any pv game would. Although unlike being controlled by a mousr u just need to have a slightly differnt skill in using the thumb stick. But as i made a point in my original post the thumb stick doesnt allow for imediate 180s like a mouse. But in saying that neither does anyone else!

Another pro/con for pc is that u get to choose ur server. This is great because u can reduce lag by decreasing ur ping but also limits ur player range. As i remember in 2142, when u played enough u saw alot of the same players frequently where as on concoles because of the way the game joining system is u play millions of different players from all around the world and the game is always very playable. I have made friends from england, america and NZ on xbox.

Honestly once u master the control sticks u find u can still pull off some pretty amazing stuff, it would just take some time to get used to it but seeing as ive played consoles ever since atari, nintendo and sega master system have become very acustom to using directional pads n thumb sticks.

The only credit I will ever give Halo is it was the basis for the funniest Machinima ever : Red vs Blue done by Roosterteeth :)

If you love your FPS's then naturally you would want to play them on the best platform so I just don't understand why you would play them on console.

yeah I have a friend that is ps3 only and he is good at all video games,,,, you get used to playing with whatever is required to play..
for me I play ps2 only for car racing games,, want to get a ps3 only to play GT5 not really interested in any other console games, and must say FPS games feel a lot easier to play on PC n i started on Q2, have tried on console but its just so hard to get used to the controller,
