Better get a console when they become available, Sony and Microsoft don't have fake MSRP, and don't sell their consoles 40% more outside the US for no reason.
Console gaming looks more and more attractive.
PlayStation 5 for 400€ here I go. PC gaming is oficially dead to me, apart from the ocasional RTS/strategy game on my laptop.
Problem is there's far more to PC gaming than just "I'm buying a console to function as a cheap PC in protest of GPU prices". I must have racked up thousands of hours playing various mods over the years that will never be on consoles (total cost = negative thousands) plus the typically deeper sales of older games (especially given the new push for making consoles disk-less and thus the account-locked games non-resellable which will have the effect of keeping prices of console versions of games higher for longer). Not everyone rushes out to buy the latest AAA at exactly $60.00 on Day 1 either and PC prices do drop quicker for many games if you wait a few months (needed anyway given the appalling buggy state they're released in). Hardware flexibility (Ultrawide monitors, keyb & mouse, etc), 40 years of backwards compatibility, the plethora of non AAA PC-only games for which there are no console versions, emulators, needing a PC anyway for work, etc, means the whole PC experience + TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) are a lot more involving than just "inflated price of GPU minus console hardware alone, nothing else factored in".Buy an Xbox/PS5. Solved.
