    Am I the only one who thinks the Wii U was fucking great and one of the most, positively revolutionary things I've ever seen?

    I mean, seriously, I have no idea, at all why people hate this console so much. :unsure:

    It was / is a great console, but sadly it didn't receive the support it needed and Ninty scrimped on the IPs. We're only now getting a Wii U Zelda, we never got a Metroid... the list goes on. But I don't regret buying mine for a minute.

    That's not true, even if you don't have a comfy desk and chair, you can grab a remote controller and play on the big screen. And then you ask, why not just get a console? Well that brings me back to that point I didn't explain In my previous reply, you don't have to argue about power because it's all one platform, and you choose how much power you have, so a PC can potentially do so much more, even away from a desk.

    I know, but still. Too much to set up to simply play a few titles, at least for me. And high end pc for gaming are so damn expensive here. So no, thanks.

    I built a great pc for someone else for $600 that is way better than the ps4 or xbox one. The one I use is 1000, and is better than a ps4 and Xbox one as well, but it's a pre-built, had I built it myself I couldve gotten something way better for the price. Anyway, I got a great pc pre-built for 1k because of simplicity, it's about the size of a wii, has wifi Bluetooth etc so it only needs 2 wires to work, has 4k output, preloaded with a lite OS with steam built in, an option to boot to Windows 10, and is basically steam as an operating system (not steamOS). It's incredibly simple. All I do I hit the power button, press a button on my switcher remote, to switch the output to my tv, pull out my steam controller and play. Or i go to my desk and boot windows. Once past the initial setup, it can't get easier to use for gaming. (And for non steam games, I set the switcher to TV, and boot to Windows then go back to the steam controller which doubles as a mouse as well to start the game and play) :D

    Prices for pc on the US doesnt work the same here. A powerfull pc could cost 3x to 5x times the price of a ps4, only low and mid range pc are easily accesible here.

    Why not? Would it help to order the parts individually via amazon? Or is it shipping costs, or something.

    They are just expensive, i think making one by yourself could cost less, but that's other of my problems, too lazy for that stuff.

    You could make a pc the same price as a ps4 and it'd be more powerful. Think for a sec...
