If your PC is, shall we say, lacking balls...  I'd recommend the PS3. 

If your PC is running on rocket fuel, by all means use the PC. 

My PC was a custom build from a geek store, but I opted for the econo version.  I just wanted the box so I could swap out parts when they die. 

I don't like to update drivers and incompatibility issues.  With the PS3, you don't have to bother with any of that.  It'll run games, period.  There are occasions where it'll need a standardized update, you just plug it into the Net and it'll do its magic. 

--

Heres the basic 'skinny' on the PC vs. PS3 debate.. 

If you have a commonly available PC that you bought from a store, about a year old and it cost somewhere less than $500, it probably will not play "hot" games. 

If you wanted to upgrade that PC to play the hottest new games, it'll probably cost you at least $200, if not more.  Dual core, and good graphics card.  RAM. 

The resident geeks can speak more precisely on this, depending on your make and model specs.

The difference is, a brand new PS3 costs about $250, cut and dried, plug-n-play.  No bullshit required.

So, thats where you have to make your personal decisions.

Personally, I thought it was money well spent to get the PS3 console, not only to prevent much anguish in upgrades, but also to prevent many hundreds of hours of hi-stress computing on my PC.  I don't want my PC to die, and then I'd be completely "in the dark."

All of that. ^

I'm just too lazy to explain myself today.  :?

Thank you.

If you're comparing them on the basis of cost though, isn't it easier to torrent games for a PC and isn't the games where they make all their money on consoles? I think they sometimes even take a loss on the consoles to get people into that extremely lucrative game market. You also have to consider that most people have a PC these days anyway so it's just a matter of spending more on a cost they already have which could be useful for their other things.

Does this mean you're a lefty Shaw?

Nope. Move with left hand, mouse aim and shoot with right hand.

IT IS THE STANDARD BY WHICH ALL FPS'S ARE MEASURED.

I can be ambidextrous if I think about it though.

I wonder when the day will come when people can play against each other across platforms.

Never ever?

Some games you already can. I believe DC Universe Online is multi platform.

They tried to cross platform Halo 2 with PC-XBOX but the PC gamers completely demolished the XBOX players to the point that they couldnt even consider balancing it out.

I believe they're going to attempt cross-platform gaming with Counter Strike: Global Offensive.  I can't imagine how they plan to balance it out.  CS has some extremely practiced and hardcore fans on the PC.  Unless the console versions have a built-in aimbot there is no way they'll be competitive.

I wouldn't think it would be too difficult for Sony to add mouse and keyboard functionality for gaming. They already support it for web browsing. They would just have to add gaming support to the next firmware update.

The problem with aim bots is "to be fair" the PC fans would just install an aimbot as well. Ive done it on games before, it isnt too difficult.

Next step, make a bot that plays the game for you, completely. You just sit back with a hot cup of cocoa and cheer your PC on.
