    So,If the next gen consoles are going to better than 9% of all present pc's ?
    Who's going to give up and go console.
    In Australia a RTX 2080 ti = 4 x PS4 Pro's.
    Cheers.

    I don't think anyone moving from PC to console would be doing so based on that factor alone. As things always go they won't be 9% better for long, it will probably only be 6 months before PC performance exceeds them and only a year or 2 where better performance can be had for cheaper. It's just a matter of preference.

    9% is nothing.
    Plus you have latest AMD/Intel cpu's and now have Ampre/Big Navi so PC will still always be the best.
    Only thing comparing PC to Console is that console will last for about 5-7 years without having to upgrade like PC.

    I'm not giving up my RTX 2060 with Ryzen 5 3600 with 32 gb ram for a console but I will just have it along side.
    Also my ps4 went bye bye with BLOD.

    better "than" 9% .So the best and always will be is PC but at what cost.
    A console that eat's gaming laptops including a very expensive alienware model is a 1/5 of the price.
    The Nvidia range will be so out of touch that musk will defer until on sale.

    I'm moving to PC just to play Assetto Corsa, so I don't need the latest tech. I currently have no plans to buy a PS5.

    I don't even like gaming on PC so long as I can avoid it, and I would never give it up completely. It has more "exclusives" than any console ever will, and specific PC-only games are why I still play games on my plain laptop.

    Every platform is about the games, not having an edge in processing power.

    Only when there is a decent PSVR2.

    Switched to PC for the PS4/XB1 gen and never looked back.

    I don’t like the clutter of multiple devices and use the PC for much more than gaming.
    I guess if we’re strictly talking games, I like everything to run north of 100fps most of my sims run steady at 120hz so I’ll always be on PC.
    I know these new consoles can run high FPS (supposedly) the question is will all devs take advantage of it? I think many will play it safe and optimize at 60fps.
