A lot of the respondents to this post just don't get it. At a certain point the computer is not the ends, it is a means. Consoles provide a computer that, relatively, easily plays games. No tinkering or fussing required.
Instead of not working and expecting me to figure out what I need to do to fix the computer, they sometimes do have a update to install first. That is fine, I switch to some other task, or read, while that is happening. . . or just play a different game and instal the patch when I am done for the day.
At a certain point, the computer ceases to be a hobby unto itself.
An off the shelf PC will play games with exactly the same amount of "tinkering" as a modern console requires.
No it won't. An off the shelf PC - DELL, Lenovo, Acer - has a 120watt power supply, an integrated intel video card that is directx 9 compatible. It won't play anything other than solitaire without a lot of tinkering. Oh, it's the buyers fault for not doing their research and buying a 'proper' PC, right? You buy a PS4, it plays PS4 games. You buy a PC...maybe. Did you check to make sure it has 8 lanes PCIe? 400 watt PSU? proper connectors? No? Toss a coin on whether that game will work or not....
