Yeah because Jessop is a bumder and has to buy everything, latest graphics cards also he would be pricing up a 4k resolution set up which is brand new and mega money, which will come down in price as it gets older

You can build a decent one (which i did) at £750 also games are cheaper overall, so over a 5 year generation the prices on PC vs Console even out. (console + games/PC + games)

I'm not saying pc is better but i play both and certain games i play on pc and the rest is console. i was a pc gamer before i was a console gamer

Same as me.. Used to have sega megadrive, ps1, ps2, but wouldn't consider myself a gamer.. Where as i was playing counter-strike and unreal tournament online with 56k connection well before the 360 came out and opened up console online gaming properly...

Then again, i could never imagine myself playing a racing game on the PC, nor something like fifa.. But for stuff like battlefield and counterstrike and stuff, i can see why people like PC gaming..

Just as i said.. I'd rather pay £350 and get a console and it last 8 years like the 360 did, than spend £750 on a PC, then need to upgrade it again in 3 years and spend another £500..

team fortress for quake got me started, then action quake 2. Counter strike was the call of duty of its day really, people used to get so anal about it running it with the graphics turned right down so it had really plain textures and modifying various scripts or stuff in the console to get that 0.00001 of an extra nano second advantage over the other players as on 56k every little helped.
I remember going to a LAN at a local hotel too and beating some proper smelly old nerds at counter strike. After that my mates and I went to a huge tournament up in Nottingham thinking we were the absolute dogs bollocks at it, we'll win hands down.
Got totally demolished in the first round almost instantly and spent the next 9 hours doing fuck all waiting for a ride home. LOL

I used to play Kingpin on the PC online. Was a pretty.decent shooter, but the best bit was that if you looked at someone and hit x, your character would shout sweary insults or threats, was funny playing a round and just hearing loads of characters wearing their heads off, gunfire, then seeing a guy gettin whapped to death with a wrench or pipe.

I used to have my screen resolution as low as it would go, my muzzle fires were purple to make it a bit easier to see in darker places and tunnels, and i could run it at 98fps most of the time haha

Can't remember what ours was called.. One year me and my mate went, and i ended up joining an online clan because they thought i was decent.. Don't remember the name now..

Then the 2nd year, me and my mate went again, and ended up joining up with 2 lads who went together, and one from marton who had gone by himself, and we ended up winning it! I took out 3 people in the last round to win it, and we never lost a round in the final! Was pretty epic.. Although the prize was stupid.. We got a free day paintballing... In nottingham or somewhere daft.. Nice one, 16 year old is bound to get to Nottingham from up north to go paintballing for a day
