Can you build a PC to match the new PS4 Pro's price and performance?Can you build a PC to match the new PS4 Pro's price and performance?

I have had many consoles and a few PCs throughout my life. Ever since I got my first PC, I basically preferred the PC and felt that the superior power and cheaper titles meant it was a no brainer. PC wins hands down every time.

Two things have changed which have significantly altered my calculus. One is that this Pro version of the PS4 has been released meaning that there is no real significant advantage as far I can tell from a PC I would build right now compared to a PS4 Pro. Right now I am happy with the level of power that PS4 Pro would be able to provide. That was not the case with the PS4. It was underpowered and you would play games on lower image quality.

The second thing which has changed is the fact that I have played a lot more games on the PC which I REALLY LOVE which have been TOTALLY RUINED by aimbot/esp type game hacks. Games like Rust. Do you have any idea what its like to spend so many hours building a base over a week or so and then to have it ruined by people who are cheating? Maybe some of you do !!

Also you would have to consider the price of the games and the fact the PS4 Pro is cheaper than equivalent PC builds. You would also have to consider that the PS4 doesn't have many of these survival games that I like as well.

Conclusion: The new PS4 Pro would be a serious option if I was buying again. The first time a console has been a serious option for a long time.

But then again, you won't be able to upgrade the PS4 Pro, you wouldn't be able to play on the internet until you bought PSN. You would probably have to pay higher prices for games considering Sony has a complete monopoly on what does go on the PS4 and what doesn't. And did I mention that the Keyboard and Mouse have been PROVEN to be far more precise than a controller (*cough cough* Auto-aim *cough cough*)
