PS4 or Gaming PC? What to choose.

I want to start a gaming channel on YouTube for that I want a gaming machine. I am a pc enthusiast. If I buy PS4 it will be different experience for me, but at same budget if I make a pc. It will not give enough performance and not even handle the live stream or recording. Should I buy PS4 or Gaming PC

  1. What kind of budget are you looking at?

    While the PS4 has only minimal streaming/recording functionality (relative to a PC), if your budget is low (PS4 territory), anything you *could* get in the PC realm isn't likely to be a streaming/recording beast anyway.

    If you have a reasonable budget (depending on your specific location), a PC would be the "better" route for what you want to achieve.

  2. The 2 biggest questions are a) what your budget is, & b) what games you're going to want to play.

    If your budget is limited (i.e. $400-500 USD), you'll get more mileage from the PS4. If your budget is a little bit higher (i..e $1,000-1,500 USD), then you can get a PC with better performance.

    If you're looking primarily at Playstation-exclusive games (or especially PS4 exclusives), then a PS4 makes the most sense. If you want a wider range of games, or are looking at PC-exclusive titles, then a PC is the better choice.

  3. Another factor you would want to look at is if you have any friends who play on a specific system. Gaming is a million times better when you can enjoy it with a friend.

    Actually my budget is $800 to $900, but in India pc parts prices are very high, therefore I can only make Intel i3 8100 pc with GTX 1060 3gb. Therefore PS4 looks better. And as on games I mainly wants to play uncharted and other games. Most of the games are available on both PS4 and PC. Help me please. Thx in advance

    a pc with i3 8100 and a gtx 1060 is alot better and faster than a ps4.. tho as they said look at what your friends are using and the games you want to play..
    tho for me personally idc what my friends are playing, i will always go for the superior platform + pc is alot cheaper on the long run

  10. You should really go for amd because it has more cores and it is better when it comes to streaming and video editing. Adding up, Intel has had some security problems and this video explains it well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-wi2pHXPMZA&t=0s
    hope you choose right,
    best of luck,
