This is it, and I think I'm sold on the idea almost now. I know the advantage of PC Gaming, and loved it for years. I would not even lay a hand to consoles for a long point in time. Yet, now years later. After fussing with patches, drivers, cracks, and you name it that comes along with PC Gaming anymore without banging you head on the desk. A Console today kind of is a smart way(should I say easy way to game). With the PS3 it plays my normal DVDs if not better than on my PC. The PS3 runs at 1080p on my 24'' PC monitor. You can store all your pics/music on the PS3. Yet I don't know of a way to play your Mp3s while you game(you might be able too tho). You can get on the internet on the PS3. It's not as good as firefox, but it gets the job done. Playing online is free like on the PC. You pop in a disc, and if you need a patch it just installs it. The game just works when you want to play. There is no need to edit a config file to make it work. There is no need to wait 3 weeks for a patch to play it. There is no need to sign-in online to install the game. Yes, the PS3 may not have as high as grade graphics as on a PC, but they are damn close for what you get. 1080p is about the highest res that most PC gamers game at anyway. load times between screens is really the biggest issue, but it's not anything that will kill anyone soon. I do just wish that I could plug in a keyboard, and mouse for all games. Yet, I'm slowly getting better at using a controller, and that's with fun games that just work when you pop a disc in. LIKE what should happen with PC gaming as we all know it's far from. So it comes down to just one thing. If you want to have a great gaming experience, and get a little extra out of your machine. Your looking for the best bang for buck for what your going to have to deal with for a year or so. It can be said(I'm almost sure of it) the smartest thing to do these days for just gaming. IS Buying a nice HDCP 1080P PC Monitor, and buying PS3 to plug into it to install in/on your computer desk. Instead of building/maintaining a PC to just game on 99% could be the best choice.
