well you actually asked the question
My PC wouldn’t perform anything near that good I wonder what the cost would be for a machine to run that well.
, and the answer was not that much more than the PS4, the link was american sorry I couldn’t edit the internet. Anyway mod in a mood I’m off 😉Posted 3 years ago

Except it wasn’t. The video showed settings higher than PS4 on a PC and clearly not the base unit posted by in your link. So the answer is more than you’d pay for a PS4 to get higher and you can’t buy a gaming PC as good as a PS4 for £400.
Precisely why I’ve given up with PC gaming as it just cost too much and now with little advantage, since FPS went easy mode because of consoles the mouse aiming has lost an little of it’s edge. PCs are only good for quirky games and MMORPG.Posted 3 years ago
I could build a PC that would be faster than the PS4/Xbox for around £450 with some carefully sourced components, so a little more expensive but at least it would run games on high settings easily at 1080p/60fps which is something neither console can achieve with the same texture details.
Hell, i could even fit a blueray drive in their at that budget, and the point about 3d Drac is a non issue as both PC’s and PS4 can do 3D with the correct tv/monitor.
For this generation, the only time i’ll be buying one is when they are sub £200 and when there are some killer exclusives. This is the first time in 20years i’ve not picked up a console at launch.Posted 3 years ago
Off you go shindiggy – money where your mouth is, lets see the component list/prices. I look forward to being educated. You’ll be looking at £100 more expensive than a PS4 and £50 more than an XBone.
I’m happy to be proven wrong but to get an 8 core CPU/8GB GDDR5/Blu-ray/decent GPU/OS/input device etc. for £450 will be pretty tight.Posted 3 years ago
Who said you needed an (low clocked) 8 core processor or a unified pool of GDDR5 ram in order to outperform the PS4 or XBOX? We are talking about games here, and the graphical performance. Checklist below, all from OCUK (which aren’t the cheapest around)

and that just about goes along with what I was trying to suggest, the PS4 isn’t some mythical beast powered by alien superchips and magic smoke like a mac, it’s just collection of bits in a case. If they can put it together for that then you can get close with a PC spec and exceed it fairly easily with a bit more cash. It’s not looking like double and certainly depending on what you have already the upgrade path doesn’t look too pricey either. You also get a decent PC for freePosted 3 years ago
I also find it strange people are quibbling about cost on STW given the amount most of us spend on bikes 🙂
I’m merely talking about the gaming experience in term of Cost and quality of graphics. (PC games are also a lot cheaper, but also doesn’t have a nice 2nd hand market for games, though this will be the last generation for this I believe).
Also, this generation cannot last as long as the previous (8years)as the new consoles are already a little long in the tooth.Posted 3 years ago
Still no OS on that PC, keyboard, mouse, and does that Blu-ray driver play 3D discs as that was my point I know you need 3D TV thanks. And I was asking what kind of PC to play the high quality shown in that video not one to match it, have we got that yet?
They have already dropped significantly (XBONE) and have only been out since November?
Yeah as the messed up with the pricing so tried to match PS4.

I’ve just watched that video some more and on a bigger screen as only seen it on my phone yesterday, that isn’t a PS4 I’m sorry. I’ve watched a few trailers now for the PS4 and it’s way beyond what that video shows.Posted 3 years ago
As an interesting aside the game ‘inFamous Second Son’ has a photo capture mode now and on neogaf they’ve been having a competition: here. Some of the images are pretty good, but obviously as they zoom in more polygons are rendered. Still, impressive programming to think about putting rustmarks etc. on a chain that you normally only see as a firey line.Posted 3 years ago
Infamous 2nd Son is good but a bit repetitive.
Battlefield 4 is impressive far better than the last few, it’s more back to BF1942 Desert Combat style.
I’ve not got any driving ones the only other game I have is COD Ghosts which is well COD so good but more of the same. Oh and a couple of freebie ones from PSN but not played them much yet.Posted 3 years ago
