Consoles vs PC Games

Just some stats from Amazon about how many games for each system:

Which one do you think I'm voting on?

PlayStation 4 (11)
PlayStation 3 (10,744)
Xbox 360 (12,892)
Wii (11,154)
Wii U (1,142)
PC (31,941)
Mac (2,651)
Nintendo DS (18,487)
Nintendo 3DS (3,576)
PlayStation Vita (1,716)
Sony PSP (10,999)
More Systems (35,700)
Digital Games (5,232)

Notice "More Systems" and "Digital Games" have a lot of PC compatible games too.

PC Games win again!

When you take the cost of being able to play the latest games I am sure Xbox is the winner, something to think about!

Bioshock Infinite.

In the USA, the PC version is the most expensive: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00..._rd_i=14220161

In the UK, it is the cheapest: BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360): Amazon.co.uk: PC & Video Games

I was buying PS3 games for some time, but have now gone back to PC because the PC versions were quite a bit cheaper.

Ironically, PC games have been cheaper because of consoles.
I rarely spend more than $10 for a game... but I do wait at least a year for a new game.

2nd Hand stores are the best way to get console games for cheap, but PC games are still cheaper there also.

Not to mention Free-To-Play PC games are becoming very popular too.

If I didn't have a computer and wanted to play games, I would probably get a used Nintendo DS. I know it doesn't supply all the mature FPS games that I love, but the quantity of games and the touch-screen are undeniable.
