Yet, you don't download? That's very interesting. I'd like to know other things you look at with no intention of using.
Sorry to burst your bubble. But your PC was in no way cheaper then my console. You can't even build a decent rig with $200. If you honestly think you can. Your in denial. Again. Your a fool with your hacker belief. It's simply way to easy to join a game. Their are plenty of people who cheat to just look like a better legit player. Did you not play the crysis beta? Never played BF3? Diablo? COD? ANY PC game?
You haven't had to pirate a game in years because you have money.... So those who do have no money? I download the game to watch it sit on a hard drive and never use it? Sure. That makes sense.Explain how my cod argument wasn't valid? You complained about lack of FPS. Cod does 60 FPS. If your rig is as piss cheap as you say it is why would you care either way? You don't achieve 60fps either way. Unless your playing older outdated games
My rig cost about $500, the cost of a 360/PS3 and the supposed cost of the good version of the PS4. Your argument is invalid because on a console, it's piss easy to get a game like CoD, running at sub 720p then upscaled, and on a 10 year old engine to run at 60fps. The game might be the new version, but the engine isn't. My 'cheap as piss' rig runs CoD games and the like at 80+, that was the point, which you apparently didn't get.
What you're constantly doing is looking at the cost of the console NOW 7 years later. not what they ACTUALLY cost when they came out. If I want to build a PC with equivalent specs as a PS3 or 360, you're damn right I could do it for close to $200. YOU are in denial if you don't think you can. Besides that. my 360 has cost me 3x as much as my pc... RROD, and every friend I have that has a PS3 has dealt with at least 1 YLOD, so in fact, I've spent LESS on my PC and gaming, than I have with my 360, fact. I can run every game out right now, better than a console, at higher resolutions, none of that upscaling crap, so don't even attempt to tell me what my PC supposedly can or can't do. Also as a side note, my pc runs 4 monitors right now... can your console do that? Without having to buy more of them and more TVs that is...
As far as hackers? You're so far on the anti-pc bandwagon it's ridiculous. Hacking is nowhere near as prominent or as prolific as you claim it is. And you know why you don't see as many on the consoles, they can't play on line for fear of having their consoles banned by serial number. No one in their right mind would attempt it, but it still doesn't change the fact that hacking in almost ANY mainstream game on PC is dealt with pretty swiftly from my personal experience, but again, I don't play on BS servers. And would you like me to list the multiplayer games I've played? I've encounter a whopping total of 8 hackers before, 8, and they were dealt with within hours, and in most cases, minutes of being reported. Planetside 2, CoD4, MW2, BF1942, BF2142, BFBC2, BF3, CS, CS: Source, CS:GO, TFC, TF2, Crysis 2, Crysis (most came from these last to due to Crytek being retarded about their server security... Crytek's fault), Red Orchestra, Red Orchestra 2, HL Deathmatch, HL2 Deathmatch, UT99, UT2004, UT3, Quake 3A. So tell me again how prevalent hacking is? I've seen 8 hackers in close 10-12 years of gaming on PC. I've seen more hackers than that in Halo multiplayer alone... Remeber the standby hack that was a big deal a few years back? Remember the Halo Reach leak? Yeah, one MONTH before release...
Those who don't have the money... That's no excuse to pirate and you damn well know it, totally an invalid argument.
Now, as it's been warned about I will not discuss piracy, but will simply say this, you're a fool if you think the one site I mentioned, was the only place I ever checked, it was used as a singular example. I check many on a regular basis, particularly when a new game releases, so I can watch how fast it gets cracked, and no, you are in correct. C2 and C3 were NOT functioning until a week after release.
Mike, if my last little bit there is still too far over the line of discussion, I apologize, it was simply to close out that part of the argument. If it needs to be removed, please do so, or let me know and I will do so.
