I would say PC, true it's much more expensive, compared to a console (if you go for really good one) But PC has more options and can be used for alots of other things!So I say PC!!!

the question is so general, do you meen whats best overall? in that case i say pc as it as more options, word procesing, downloadable content (without having to pay extra for X-box live) etc...however if you meen whats best for games i say console as it is easier to play multiplayer offline with freinds, easy to plug in and play, takes up less space (however X-box is a close call :tazz: ) and no instalation and compatability problems.

but seen as i have both i cant complain ;)

:( :( :woot: X-box stopped working a week ago :wub: :hug: :huh: :tazz: look on the bright side i still have a game cube :) ........not quite the same is it :woot: :yes:

cant wait for x-box 360.......just one question will it play original x-box games

just look at it, makes u mouth water!!!!!

Why buy something that's just trying to live up to PC standards? ;) Computer all the way. If Xbox had a mouse and keyboard (not sure if it does or doesnt) it would help. Console controllers break out of frustration too :tazz:
