Khellendros: BumpInTheNight: If I wanted the same experience as a console I'd disable two video cards, under clock the third, underclock my CPU, disable most of the ram, disable most of the HDDs, disable two of the monitors, run something heavily restrictive like OSX and point an always on webcam at my crotch.

If I wanted the same experience as a PC I'd saw my 60 inch television in half, mount it on my desk, sit in a desk chair hunched over the controller, and every 2 years I'd drop a grand into a trash can and set it on fire for the hell of it.


Haha I game from my PC on my 60" TV in my living room, kicked back in my recliner.  And I use a 360 controller when that is better than mouse/keyboard.  Which it rarely is.  I spent all of 300 on this computer. Looks amazing in 1080p.

BumpInTheNight: But seriously, both of the new consoles are getting pretty similar to real PC hardware, emulation should be pretty approachable.


The Xbox 1 (which was the first Xbox; not to be confused with the Xbox One which is the third Xbox) was pretty close to stock x86 PC hardware, too, but a dozen years later the best freely available emulator (excluding the backwards compatibility system in the Xbox 360, which was the 360th Xbox) is maybe only 10% functional.  Good if your idea of fun is "look at the Halo 1 title screen".

I think it's to show off our infinite master-race power.
