The debate between PC (personal computer) and console players will have no end soon. If a person wants a gaming device, that person should pick a console over a PC because of the endless opportunities and excitement.
Firstly, for a first-time gamer, it is easier to start with a console for the benefits of not getting overwhelmed or frustrated by the specs or even building a PC. It is really easy to set a console up while a PC requires people to find the one that suits their styles in gaming, which includes ensuring if the graphics card can handle the games played if the mouse is comfortable for the users/players and what type of monitor users/players want to get.
Secondly, consoles are significant than PCs because you can get a Playstation or an Xbox which is an electronic device that outputs a visual image that to display a videogame. for $500 Canadian while a pre-built PC costs almost $2,000 Canadian. For a PC that users build on their own, it may cost more or less depending on how they want their PC built. Console players get a controller usually with a game or a series after purchasing a console, but for PCs, players only get a PC, no monitors, keyboards or mouses attached.
Thirdly, Console gamers have some of the most highly rated games such as The Last of Us, The Uncharted series, And Red Dead Redemption 2 are not compatible with PC.
Fourthly, what is the point of playing if you’re not playing in style because console players are compatible with televisions, you can lay down in bed or on your couch while playing a game? In addition, consoles can be compatible with televisions, so people are able to lay down in beds or couches while playing a game. Conversely, PC players have to sit at an uncomfortable desk an expensive gaming chair, fiddling for the right setup and having constant back pain.
In conclusion, it seems that buying a console is a better choice rather than buying a PC because of the simplicity in setting up the console, overall price in the console, a wide selection of exclusive games against PC, and the ability to play in bed with a big screen.
