    Which platform do you prefer?

    For those of you with two or more current consoles (PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, or PC), which one do you prefer the most and why?

    Maybe you like the PS4's exclusives, the Switch's portability, the Xbox's multimedia features or the PC's graphical power...but whatever your reasons, explain your choice.

    I only have one console, so I can't answer.

    I own both an XBox One (OG Model) and a Nintendo Switch. Haven't played my Switch lately, but I do prefer it due to portability if I don't want to get my butt out of bed.

    That being said, I do like the Blu-Ray Player on my XBox One.

    Most people are going to know my answer.

    PC, by far. Not only because of the Powah!, but for many reasons. When you guys have to have a 5 foot stack of old consoles to play your old games every time a new generation comes, I'm still playing old and new games on my one device that I can keep updated whenever I feel the need. PC pretty much gets all of the XB1 exclusives now, any PC exclusives out there, plus even some PS exclusives from time to time. If I want to take the time and invest in it, I can even legally dump my own console games into ROMs and emulate them on the same device (up to a point).

    I have the freedom to do whatever I flippin want with my PC within the realm of computing possibility, not just what the console makers tell me I can do. If I want to browse the net, I can browse the net, and not wait around for Nintendo, or whoever, to allow a browser on the console. If I want to rip all of my blu rays and dvds to my hard drive and play them on my TV, I can do it. If I want to watch something on Kodi, I can easily do that. I can do whatever I want, however I want it, and still have the best gaming experience while doing all that.

    And since my PC is dedicated to my TV and I have an Xbox controller connected wirelessly, I can still play from the comfort of my recliner. Yeah, it's a little harder to set everything up in the beginning, and it's not for everyone. But it's definitely for me.

    Switch. Because I'm pretty much down to just playing Nintendo games at this point. My PS4 isn't even plugged in and the last games I bought on PC I never even booted

    I won't count the PC, as that has existed forever, but I like the Switch best of the consoles.

    PS4 for me. It's not surprising since I usually end up preferring Sony consoles in the long run. It has the better exclusives at the moment (though the Switch will almost inevitably take that in the next few years), has all the third-party stuff and is generally a decent platform to use.

    That's not saying much though considering I don't own a Switch, my Xbox One has been even more useless than I originally expected and I only occasionally game on PC (and then it's usually for exclusives like Civilization).

    Nope. I'm just a regular scrub like the rest of you now.

    I've been considering quitting for a long time now. You know how it is.

    Sucks that Wu stepped down because he was one of the only ones who was consistently around. But I know he has a lot going on in his personal life, so he needed the break. I wish him well, and hope he still comes around.

    Interestingly, it got me looking, and I noticed ancient logged on yesterday, and he's still a mod.

    I read a lot more than I post, but I'm still intending on posting at the same rate of 5-10 per week.

    Gotta hit that 10,000 post count in 2025.

    This should be an easy answer for me. I really love the PlayStation. I like it's games. I like the studio's that are behind the brand and I like the fact that the architect behind the PlayStation 4 sat down with the dev's and asked what they wanted in the next generation of console. What I do not like is that after 4 iteration of PlayStation I Have to either re-buy a game as a remaster, or plug in the older console. I do not have the room to cater for all of them. PS Now is not available in Australia, so i effectively loose the last generation of games.

    the X-Box thought is the almost the reverse of the Sony. there are not to many games on it I must play. I know MS managed mot of the good companies they had into the ground and it is kinda a boneyard these days. What I do like is that all my games can be played here and that they made a real push to have a system that can take a game that runs at 720p and make it look decent up-scaled at 1080. Not that it is important to all but I like my games to look a certain way and 1080 is the minimum res that provides a sharp image. I love Game Pass, and I would like it a lot more if they replaced games with Gold with this just adding to the library every month and letting us play online if we have it.

    I am going to have to say that i prefer to play games on my X Box. I just have more fun.

    EDIT:
    PC - Once I saw the graphics on the PS4 i thought it was no longer necessary to own a PC for some games. The PS was good enough to handle everything I wanted. and with time becoming more of an issue it felt right to give it up.

    If you are wondering why I did not consider the Switch. Nintendo is for Nintendo games for me. and they are doing nothing really new these days. I saw DK Tropical Freeze is getting a port. and i played so little of that I may get it. but Really I do not want to support a company that has tried to redifne the bottom line. a minimum level of detail defined by hardware spec's. As a portable gaming device it is epic. nothing beats it. but as a home console, it needs to rely on it's own library and not that borrowed from last generation and sadly, it has not much at all that makes me race home to play. the gimick that is the dock has already worn of for me. I hope they release a cheaper Dockless version very soon. It's true purpose is to be played away from the house, played on the go. this is it's strength. And it kills it. when you have ipads, large screen phones and other portable light gameing PC's you need to stand apart and Nintendo has done this very well.

    Lol. You wrote a paragraph about how awesome the PS4 is, followed by another paragraph about how the XB1 sucks. Then your conclusion was that you prefer to play on the Xbox.

    they do sit side by side really well. But as for Xbox. they are making smart moves. even if all you want to do is future proof your collection, or at the very least hold still play the current and previous generation of xbox games. It has a place. If the PS5 has BC that matches that of XB then I would say it is game over for XB.

    I just like to remain confusing. but I may swing back. I am just stressed when I play the PS. My trophy hunting addiction is or was pretty bad. but at least now, playing colossus, I am not even trying to get trophies. and the stress of doing/not doing is gone. So the move away from the console for now has paid of. If I can finish the game and be happy. I may just change my opinion again.

    I read this Glorious statement from the TV, which is hooked up to my Gaming PC, from my recliner with an Xbox controller in one hand and the mouse in the other (now typing with both) and PSCX2 running Madden 2007 in the background.



    As for home consoles I definitely prefer my PS4 due to exclusives.

    Handheld has been, in the following order: Game Gear, Gameboy Color, Neo Geo Pocket then back with the Gameboy/DS line until currently...the Nintendo Switch!

    yeah i just dont see the use for an XB1 unless you want that BC,other than that with pretty much zero exclusives,me personally with my tastes,there's no use owning one. But for people that might have one console or whatever,XB1 might be viable for people that need some third party lovin

    Since I joined the glorious PC Master Race I don't think there's much looking back! Like Woody said, there's such a massive back catalogue, emulation, media features and so much more!

So the move away from the console for now has paid of. If I can finish the game and be happy. I may just change my opinion again.
    That's a legit point.

    Glad you're still coming around. I'd miss you if you left. But modding is just a voluntary thing, and sometimes it's just not a priority to volunteer for that kind of stress when you have other stuff going on. I really hope things look up for you.

    I don't see a point for XB1 OG (other than insane low price for gaming), but I do see a place for the X1X. Especially with the crazy PC hardware prices because of cryptocurrency. I bought my GTX 1070 when it came out for $450, and recently they were going for a minimum of $800 and up to $1300 because of this bitcoin mining crap. And RAM prices are through the roof, too. It's been so crazy that die hard PC builders have actually been suggesting that people buy prebuilts to save money. The X1X is a decent way for a gamer to get some power at only $500. You don't get all the freedom I was talking about earlier, or the back catalog. But I'd definitely say it has a place. Just not for me.

    Nintendo has the biggest part of my heart, followed by Sony. I'm not interested in the soulless emulation machines (PCs). They're too expensive and a pain in the ass to keep up with anyway.

    I'm also not a fan of Microsoft in general, so the Xbox brand hasn't historically been something I even consider. They've really turned their consumer relations around recently, though.

    Being a family man, I don't have time to own all three consoles, so I picked the two I like most this gen.

    Kind of a tough choice, they're all great. But ever since the Wii U for me I've been more about that "handheld" experience and now even moreso with the Switch. Just because it's convenient and fits my needs currently. But I still love all my hardware. A piece of hardware I'd like to get is the XONE, but as a PS4 owner I just can't justify a buy with the two being so similiar to one another, especially not since the PS4 does it better. So I guess I'll have to miss out on those XONE exclusives. As for games exclusives are always a nice selling point

    Seeing how all games are developed on PCs, I'd say that's actually the closest to the heart and soul. I can't argue with them being too expensive. And they're a little harder to set up in the beginning. But I would argue that once they're set up, they're not really any harder to keep up with than a console these days.

    From an end user's perspective, consoles are more natural. They belong in the living room and in our hearts. PCs should stay at office buildings, and when they're in the home, they should stay doing normal PC things like Word documents, spreadsheets and web browsing.

    With consoles, you don't have to constantly upgrade them. I even think the PS4 Pro and XB1X are silly. So consoles are so much more convenient.

    And we've been through this before and we're not going to change each other's minds, so let's talk about how amazing Italian food is.

    You don't have to upgrade a console. You just have to buy an entire new console that doesn't play the games from your last console.

    Tough choice between the PS4 and Switch right now. I love them both like they're my children. Sometimes I love them like they are my wife... Moving on...

    The PS4 will, God willing, get the Final Fantasy VII 7emake. That is, obviously, a big deal to me. With that being said, for the time being I would have to choose the PS4 if someone was holding a gun to both my PS4 and Switch and were about to kill one of them. I'd beg them to just kill me instead, but I digress...

    The Switch is everything I ever wanted without ever knowing I wanted It? That's the best way I could sum it up. The only flaw I see with the Switch is how disappointing it can be when cool games are announced as "PS4, XB1, PC". Unfortunately, as Nintendo fans we have to get used to that. With that being said, should the FFVII remake make it to the Switch my life will be complete and the PS4 would be my second console.

    At the end of the day, I think having the Switch/PS4 combo is by far the greatest pairing you could ever have in any console generation ever. You should be a pretty satisfied gamer with these two.

    FFVII will not get to the switch. As good as it is there are limitation placed on games by the hardware. the Dev of the FFVII remake said many many years ago, if he ever remade FFVII, it would be his magnum opus (which I think means his lifes greatest work). It is to this end I believe FFVII will push the PS4 to it's limits. He is doing you cloud and every FF fan a service by setting standards in graphical design so very high.

    Well, I never said that I thought it would, but it'd be cool. I'd even like to have the original on there, but I just doubt that will happen. Either way, it doesn't matter a whole lot. I'll play it on the PS4 first anyways and it'll be the happiest day of my life.

    Good points but a decent PC will outshine a console for years and most games are scalable. Also, like the Woodster said, you can easily upgrade a PC. As a third option, like I have, buy a STEAM Link - I can play my PC on every floor of my house!

    I still have a bunch of other consoles with the Wii U and the Wii still being linked up to TVs. I guess I'll wait until the Switch is priced sensibly, and has games that I want, before I drop my Vita.
