Honestly I know only a few people with PS3's and most only use them for titles specific to those systems. For everything else they're playing on the 360.

Just like Ford or Chevy or 9mm or .45 I heard some folks even have Wii's!


My buddy has both so he can play the console specific games for both systems, If I had the money to wate I would have both also.

We also think it's retarded to have to pay to play online.

No Xbox for me. I do the majority of my gaming on the PC.

I had an XBox, but it broke, and I haven't felt the need to get a new one. That said, my Playstation is acting up, and I think it is slowly going out. I think it is the hardrive??? Anyway, when playing games, it will randomly freeze on loading screens. Never has a problem playing Netflix, can watch movies all day long. However, playing either MLB12 or MW3, it will freeze on the screens between games.

If I wanted to play with a bunch of ADHD teenagers or unemployed college graduates....I guess I'd buy a console.

Hey most of my friends are under-employed college graduates, get it right!

But that's another thread....

Maybe there is a console in my future when the kids are a bit older, but for me gaming has always been a pc thing...

Diablo III's decision to host most content server-side and "protect" their product from piracy even at the expense of customer enjoyment (imagine loosing your connection for whatever reason and not being able to play the game you paid for and are addicted to) will greatly affect the future of gaming as we know it. If they succeed it will be a long while before we see any other major release without that "feature", if not, gaming studios will think twice before getting that aggressive on their products...

Personally I will pass on that offer and will play other games in protest of this decision.

I remain curious to see how it will actually play out...

I doubt my comp can even handle top end gaming

Still on the W3540 Xeon @ 2.93 GHz, 12GB of RAM, but here is the real weak spot, a Quadro FX 580. This is what really gets me about PC gaming, if I wanted to be able to run the games at their best settings I would constantly need to upgrade my video card costing more than a console each time. Even if I want to wait around a bit the lifespan of a console is what 8-10 years now? Over that time to run games at not the highest but still pretty good settings you're looking at 2-3 complete upgrades of the computer and probably an additional video card or 2.
