Since the dawn of gaming, the consoles vs PC controversy has been a major issue and there seems to be no end to this controversy in sight. While on one hand, PC offers a greater maneuverability, consoles offer ease of use on the other. PCs had a higher hand since they offered 4k resolution until the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro came into the scene. So we decided to take on this controversy. To keep things fair, the PC build used in this comparison was worth $500, which is equivalent to the cost the flagship consoles.
To kick things off, here is Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One X and PC.
The Xbox One X has a clear lead. Although, this comparison is not the most suitable one for the game is a Microsoft exclusive and thus, cannot be played on PS4.
Next, we have Shadow of War.
While the game looks more or less the same on Xbox One X and PS4 Pro in glorious 4k, it does not look so nice on the PC. In fact, the setting had to be turned down to ‘low’ to be even playable.
Here we have Assassin’s Creed Origins on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and Xbox One S.
Again, the game looks quite similar on both PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. But it does not look as good on Xbox One S. It is also worth mentioning that Assassin’s Creed Origins is encountering several issues on the PC that are yet to be solved.
The flagship consoles have a clear lead in the price segment with absolutely stunning visuals. Yet, there are some who’d still prefer a $500 PC as it can get a lot more done other than gaming.
