People love to argue about video game consoles. More specifically, they love to argue about which one is more powerful than the others. I watched and nodded, occasionally chiming in when I saw these types of debates for a while until I realized something... it doesn't matter.
When did I realize this? It was some time after putting together my first gaming PC. If you don't have a gaming PC, I'll let you in on a little secret... they're more powerful than consoles. By a whole hell of a lot. Sitting atop my PC gaming master race throne, I watch the console peasants argue about which of their pieces of shit are the nicest smelling. It's very amusing, really.
In all seriousness though, PC will always win for horsepower. It wins in this console generation and it will win in the next one. The real reason you should select one console over another is for the exclusive games and features it has. I'll be getting a Wii U to go with my PC, because Nintendo exclusives are always amazing and the system has very interesting features. Not because the Wii U has more gigatexelflops than the Xbox or Playstation.
Seriously you guys, stop it. You sound stupid.
