Prove that PC is for welfare people that can't afford 60 bucks games.

Thats cos you are buying most if not all of your PS3 games brand new, how many of those PC games are brand new...a fair share look to be years old...


Thirty years ago, our homeworld was swept away in a tide of so called justice. Millions of men, women and children lost their lives. But some of us, refused to lay down and die. Some of us, refused to accept your shallow plea for forgiveness. We are the generation forged in the fires. And this, is our day.

I bought GTA The Complete Pack on Steam for £4.99
GTA
GTA II
GTA III
GTA VICE CITY
GTA SAN ANDREAS
GTA IV EPISODES FROM LIBERTY CITY

UMAD CONSOLE GAMERS?

But seriously, you need to be honest, did you buy every one of your games brand new when they just came out? Chances are you didn't. I've bought many games on xbox for a mere £7 or less. Good ones as well.

The Darkness, Perfect Dark Zero, Shadowrun, Kameo, Mass Effect (This was actually ages ago. Im surprised it was that cheap even then) and other stuff I can't remember.

Steam has a lot of indie and lame games so of course you can save fuck loads of money. But yes it also has great deals you'll never find on consoles.

Both things have their advantages. Yes you'll save money in the long run with pc but think of all the issues pc has that you wont get on consoles. Viruses, errors, system failures, etc

A bit off topic but that is the only thing PC has that Consoles don't. Consoles could easily glitch out (happens more than my PC) or fail altogether.

But Steam has amazing sales. Even a lot of new games are 50 bucks rather then 60.

Well you calling it off topic is taking this off topic Razz So let's take it back on topic.

Steam is one of the best features of owning a pc but if a similar program or feature comes to consoles (steamworks on ps3 isn't quite the same...) then consoles will, maybe no have the upper hand but will be more on equal terms.

I buy all my games brand new because I only buy games I look forward to.

Also, PS3 lets me view virus-less porn on a 52" LCD TV. What now?

But why would it start off 10 euro dearer than the retail version? Surely a digital version of the game would be cheaper than the retail version.

Yeah that's what I'm wondering... I can't seem to figure out a reason why that would be the case.
