The difference between consoles and pc. My 2014 xbox one can run modern games just fine. I doubt a pc built to the same specs with 2014 hardware could do the same. Same specs with modern hardware? Yea it definitely could but thats not my point. A console will always be cheaper than a pc, and it will be longer lasting. The advantages to pcs is modding and higher potential performance. Thats about it. And if more games do modding on console, that advantage will disappear aswell, and with the performance aspect, well not everyone can afford even a low end gaming pc, a pc that will be obsolete in barily 2 years.

i get that the xbox series x price cant be beat for the performance but if you were able to make 1 million pc with this hardware the cost would be cut in half. So these tests are just impossible. what you have to build is a pc that costs a company 500 to build. like how much does it really cost to build a 3060ti which would wreck an xbox S X

The series x cannot do 4k 120. It's upscaled it is not native 4k. Still love the series x. I own it. But until they can do native 4k at 120 not worth upgrading to a new 4k tv. 120 hertz 4k tv's were very uncommon when I bought mine. They did exist but they were gonna cost you about $2,000

So although the Xbox series x is the better price. But is it the better value... No. Can you do your job on Xbox when you aren't gaming? (assuming you aren't a streamer haha). Can you play an assortment of emulated browser games? A PC just allows you to do anything you want to do and play games. So that crappy PC is still a better value Imo.

@Ed Williams The Xbox Series X runs that game Cyberpunk at 972p upscaled brother. A 1070 does that game at 60fps 1080p med settings. So idk what your freind was doing.. ultra settings with rtx or something? Is that why he needed to go down?  Yeah If you would like to do rtx then your better off with a 3060. My man, is it just me or does your roommates card seem a little broken? Does that guy use mining cards or something? :p

@Alt Acc might as well show the worst case. my roommate has a 1070 and I remember he dropped it down to 900p to play above 60 when it released. the series x has two modes and you can literally set the game to console settings on a pc for a good comparison. I feel like the choice of doom and forza was them trying to play it safe and choose games that they know would still hit 60 at 4k on a 1070, and yet doom was still getting tearing. not to mention the series x can do RT, and has AI cores ready even tho AMD hasn't released the tech yet just seemed like a super cop out comparison that they knew would offend nobody. like gears 5 is a seemingly obvious choice... locked 60 at 4K with ultra settings on series x. that would've been waaaay more cus he's interesting cus my roomie has to drop it to around 1800p on pc to get like 55fps. the coalition said series x was running similar to a 2080, and 1800 is ~83.33% of 2160p which would add up. the actual real disadvantages rn with xbox over a 1070 imo is there arnt many optimized games, and there are hard frame caps cus ur on a console, but MS is working on both. imo it will be the ultimate back compat machine and when more games get frame doubling turned on, and will start running games better after they get optimized, and by then 10 series cards will be legacy because no rt or dlss

Doom Eternal "black levels" difference was because the Series X is running 4k/60 with HDR, your 1070 said "HDR Off." You turn HDR on the 1070 and your frame rate will drop pretty dramatically.

Sorry but the math was wrong. You need to include the misstep items and pilfered freebie that was a money loss towards your total. Maybe you could get a replacement or refund but who knows. This is all part of the PC master race life which is the other hidden bonus to getting the console. There is more capability in a PC for sure but at what price?

A big compromise is the lack of a 1tb nvme ssd. I would've been fine with a 2gb/s qlc nand ssd, as these cost about the same as m.2 sata drives. Tha would have been a big fat MUST for a "Same-Price Console Killer"

@Acrylico There will always be drawbags that Consolegamers like me would really miss turning to PC. And I know wht I'm speaking, I love PCs and think I got myself a real good knowledge about hardware. But I have no real need for a high performance system. I'm like experimenting with my System all the time and love that. Unfortunatly my GTX 970 quit services 2weeks after I bought it. Only backup I have is a gtx 560 at the moment on a Celeron J1900 that actually outperforms a PS4 Slim. I got a Ryzen 1300x trying to get to work a B350 Mobo with damaged socket. But unfortunatly couldn't afford some Ram so far. So gotta borrow some from a friend for testing and save for at least 8gigs single stick till I can afford a second stick.

@Acrylico nah not really. SSDs are not much more expensive then they were ever before. The lowest I saw 1tb nvme is the crucial p1 for around 100$ at the moment it is think like at 110$. You just can't build a PC matching every great feature of a console, matching the performance. Because Windows will always take away a good margin of the performace for (at least in gaming terms speaking) unnecesary background utilities. I'd love if Microsoft released a pure Gaming oriented windows version, that focuses on pure performance optimisation.

what all of you are forgetting is that, microsoft and sony can afford to build and sell these systems at a huge loss. piece by piece trying to build one to get the same performance is easy, but we forget that they can build a 1000$ machine and sell it for 400. YOU cannot build a 400$ system and pretend it's gonna compete. maybe in a year or so for sure though.

PC is the "Master Race" of the gaming universe not because it outperforms consoles, at the same price point, but because you have the option of going all out. Whereas you can't really upgrade a console. Let's see a console compete against a $2k PC. PC is to Console, as Gated Community is to Trailer Park. (to be fair though, they probably do both have a fence that runs the length of the property line!)

Unless graphics is the absolute be all and end all, having a 'good' PC isn't about all of that. Having a good PC is more about the versatility it gives you. Consoles go out of date very quickly with the constant battling of competitors and I've had a 1070 in my rig for years and not changed my rig for years. Might not mean I can play games at super ultra settings but I can mod games, play games from years back (with some tweaking), play newer games at lower settings (but still play them), watch Netflix and surf the web without extra hidden subscription charges. I spent a price to build my PC and it still serves me fine. If I want to make a change then I can but I don't think any game justifies me whacking out a fortune just for better graphics right now.

I know this, in Ontario a $500 Pc is trash, my $1700 Pc from 2016 cant even compare to the new consols. Im not building a PC with next generation consol hardware around here for anything less than $2000+ MsRp retail/New. PC gaming sux nowadays, theres no physical games anymore they have been discontinued for a decade now and games are all Digital (Eww) And the fact that PC hardware costs 3X4 more than a consol of equivalent hardware. If i even want any RtX gpu i have to go through Staples or Walmart lol, my local PC store thats been around 20 years doesnt even want to deal with RTX 20 series cards because there crazy expensive, and the RtX 30 series cards are difficult to get. After 20 years being a PC gamer, i now prefer consol. XbSX is a great system, not state of the art but definitely high end. But PlayStation 5s my favorite and primary gaming platform,and PlayStations controllers are unbeatable...I do love PCs and spent so many years building them but theres no motivation anymore. PC Master Nothing....IMO..

In my mind, you don't need to beat a $500 console. You need to beat a $500 console and a $500 laptop, minimum. Most people have at least one PC in their house. If it's for gaming purpose, it's a $400-500 GPU and a $500-600 build on the rest of the components.

used products, hassle of dealing with stuff that don't work, inferior and less storage space, lack of controller, wifi and bluray, wired c class controller, still more expensive, worse performance than console and occupying way much space, vs brand new console with controller with warranty and performance for less. -> I guess the answer is obvious.

@Asfandyar Suleman pc parts last a very long time, especially when looked after. 5 years is nothing. you are limited to one drive on console unless you go external, you can have pretty much as many as you want on pc. controller is not the way to play, it is objectively worse for pretty much all games except racing games and a few others. it is good for the consumer but the only reason they do it is to bring you in and make money off subscriptions and more expensive games. idk what small form factor pcs your looking at. bigger is not better for displays, TVs have much higher input lag, and the ones that most people use are upwards of 20ms. you can tell the difference between 1080 and 4k on a 24 inch, and 4k is pointless in the first place.

@Asfandyar Suleman You could get the new 3060 gpu instead of the 1070 and some extra space, so then it'll be better with more storage and it will work and all. Btw, it is still cheaper, *even* if it's $600 because they don't force you to pay online on pc and have way cheaper games. 🤷‍♂️

@ArcaneVoid bro I respect your opinion but unfortunately its not correct, as per my belief. Old stuff means stuff that has spent some time of its life and is somewhat closer to getting broken. You can have more storage on pc? well you so can have on PS4 with bigger drive. Controller is the way to play, unless you playing any AOE, SIMS kinda game. if the consoles are sold at loss, isnt that good for the consumer??? why we arguing this point. the small form factor pc exist but they perform relatively bad as compared to even old consoles. . TV are the displays bro the bigger they are the cooler the experience. i dont understand the need to gaming 4k on 24" monitor, i mean you can't differentiate between 1080 and 4k on 24". the pixel density is already too high. I hope it would be convincing.

Your'e forgetting that Consoles cost more to build than they are being sold for. The sell the consoles at a loss to bring in revenue from Games, especially exclusive games. You never stood a chance. You'd probably need $750 to be competitive.

Your budget should have been the cost of Xbox Series X for gaming + the cost of Chromebook for browsing and other stuff. Targeting just $500 misses the point that people probably have a cheap computer for doing the other stuff your gaming PC will do.

@cromnio Nope. My point is that if they are opting for a gaming PC or a gaming laptop, then the budget should be higher than the cost of Xbox Series X since a PC/laptop will "likely" be used for non-gaming stuff too. Again, I'm talking only about those who have/will choose a PC/laptop as their primary gaming device over an Xbox Series X. I also understand that there will be a nominal exception to this, but in the majority of the cases, the budget should be higher.

@Mukesh Angrish My point was that the budget shouldn't be increased because in most cases people already have a laptop. Your point was people had to choose between buying either a laptop and the series x or buy a pc, so therefore the budget should be increased. Is this correct?

@cromnio I understand your point. However, you completely misunderstood my comment. I'm not arguing if a console can be replaced by a PC. That's what the video is trying to do. I only said that their budget for this kind of video should have been higher, since a person using a laptop/PC for gaming would not need another similar computing device (laptop/PC) just for browsing and other stuff.

that argument does and doesn't work. Let's say a guy wants to buy a gaming device to play modern AAA title and would like convenience(i.e not setting up a pc for example), and he already has a laptop(a reality for most people tbh). The consoles are perfect for this type of people because it ticks all 3 things, he just want to sit down and play with consistency(i.e nearly every game on the consoles is guaranteed to run at their rated res and fps), he doesn't have to do anything other than insert his credit card here and credit card there, he doesn't need a another pc.

Wow it's almost like consoles are an amazing price to performance thanks to standardization and mass production. Who knew that consoles are actually a great choice for a reliable and arguably great gaming experience? Oh wait I did and I game on both consoles and PC.

I recently switched to PC. Not because of performance, but just convenience. I like having one device that can do all my computing needs. Gaming, word processing, programming, etc. It's nice having a place to do all things. That being said the Xbox series x is pretty sweet and the price point is bang on. Bang for the buck if you are looking for just a gaming rig the Xbox is not a bad way to go given the price of current gen hardware.

@Acrylico Even if that were true, which I don't think it is, that's not the only thing in the console's favor, as he mentioned in the video: much more storage and faster SSD, better controller, support for ray tracing, absence of a need to mix and match parts and troubleshoot everything, etc. Also, that's an INCREDIBLY vague comparison to make if you just call it even because of one thing you consider an advantage. I've bought used consoles for $10. In a few years you'll be able to get a Series X for $250 on craigslist. Think a $250 PC can match it? It's said the One X was about on par with a GTX-1060. There's no way in hell you can convince me the Series X is only as powerful as a 1070.

I'm still really happy that the new consoles are as good as they are! Now we'll get better looking games again (at least for another few years before they're just old and bad)! Edit: I'd still prefer it if the Series X was closer to a let's say $ 700 PC! :p Edit: I declare this a PCMR victory (for why: see first line) - It's a win for everyone! :D

Throw in the game sharing on Playstation/Xbox that you can only get on PC thru Microsoft/Xbox games, that makes the $ your saving even more one sided. I've been spending half price on Cyberpunk, Valhalla, Cold War, Far Cry 6 pre order, etc lately as my friend is game sharing them off my account and will continue to do so. I also share my PS Plus, Game Pass ultimate. It's amazing if you do it with someone you trust.

Although it was true that PC was the master race., this is no longer the case. I tried PC, but I had problems with multiplayer. People were using under-spec PCs or unreliable internet, and they were getting kicked out of dungeons and trials. I would much prefer playing on console because people only get kicked out if they have unreliable internet, and it happens rarely.

This proves 2 things minimum,,,, Consoles are overrated and overpriced. PC will always be King simply due to upgradability. And with the newer SFF (small form factor) cubes coming with more power there's no reason to waste money on a shitty fucking console.
