Consoles let you game on your TV using a game controller.
PCs are the more expensive option
How's the weather in 2008?
A decent gaming PC (read: as good or better graphics/framerate vs. consoles) w/ HDMI output on a midrange graphics card is $500 now. Steam big picture mode is free, usb controllers are everywhere. New console is what? $100 less? But the higher average price of games means you break even once you buy 3-4 games. Buy more, and the console option costs more than the pc. You know how computers aren't really dramatically faster or more capable today than in 2011? Consoles are even worse about that, they just hide it better with market segmentation ("exclusives"). The result: even a midrange pc from a few years ago can handle modern games just fine.
(consoles are) good for action games, sports games and action oriented RPGs.
Action games? Pretty sure no one at quakecon uses a controller.
Sports games? lol, consoles can have that one. With my compliments.
aRPGs? Do those even exist anymore, outside of Path of Exile and Diablo? Or do you mean Bethesda's single-player-only-MMO walking simulators?
Unless anonymous coward really, really wants to play Bloodborne or NFL Roster Update 2k15, the PC seems like the obvious choice. Has the largest catalog of games, barely more expensive hardware, cheaper games, entire genres of games that don't exist on consoles (RTS)...
