I hear so often on the internet console gamers who's only argument against PC gamers is that it costs too much. Below I have organised a rough estimate of what my Xbox 360 has cost me over the past few years, just because I thought it'd be an interesting experiment to have a look at. Xbox 360 Slim Console: £200 x3 Xbox 360 wireless controller: £96 Xbox Live membership for 4 years: £120 25 games purchased brand new at around £37 average: £925 10 Used games purchased at an average of about £12: £120 Turtle Beach Headset: £40 TV (which may/may not be included in this): £520 In total that's approximately £1,901 or £1,381 not including the TV. Now I understand that this is entirely an estimate over a fair period of time, but when you look at it like that, it is a huge amount of money. You could build a decent gaming PC for £700-800 if you knew what you were doing, and monitors/games are much cheaper compared to Xbox, not to mention the graphical advantages. The only disadvantage is that you have to upgrade your PC from time to time... What are your thoughts? I've tried not to be biased here, I'm just trying to portray a point.
