Reasons why gaming on a PC is better than game consoles (Part 1)
PC games have better graphics than consoles — of course, if you have an enough powerful PC. This is one of the main arguments in favor of PC gaming, as the PC hardware can far outperform those of console like the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. As a result, games on PC get better graphics settings with smoother frame rates, than that on a console.
However, gaming PCs usually come at a higher price. For instance, a great PC gaming features 1080p resolution screens compares to the same resolution that the PlayStation 4, original Xbox One, and Xbox One S — can cost anywhere near $550. Compared to the $200 price tag of consoles, a gaming PC suddenly doesn’t seem so attractive.
But, again, better graphics and smoother experience are available, if you’re willing to pay. And, at the same time, you save money in the long term when you play games on PC, as you’ll find out next.
The Steam game platform – Steam Valve Software
Steam is a platform where, among other platform that allows players to browse, buy, and launch their games, and it’s better than the stores application of Xbox One and PlayStation.
For one among many others, game sales are superior on Steam. During a sale, players can get older games with a significant discount compared to the price on console stores. For example, “GTA V” can cost around $30 during a sale compared to the $65 – original price on the Xbox store.
Microsoft and Sony have made great program with sales and discounts, but the deals will hardly be as good as you’d find on Steam.
You don’t have to pay to play multiplayer games on PC which helps save money in the long run. To play multiplayer games on console, you have to register for the paid Xbox Live and PlayStation Network services, based on which console you own. PC gamers don’t require additional payments to play games online.
