I like that explanation, but for people who are bad with money management and just need something to play on without costing much and using their already-bought TV, consoles are maybe the way to go. I am personally a PC gamer tho, IDK what the selling point is for consoles other than cheap upfront cost.
I’ve been playing on consoles for a decade and rarely play on PC and my preference is simply because of ease of use. I'm now not a technical man, I do not recognize the lingo. the minimal specifications move over my head. however, with consoles, I don’t need to worry about any of that. I can clearly pick out any sport and then play. yes, the video games (pokemon y decrypted) are high-priced but I best need to buy a console once each 4–5 years and don’t want to spend any extra cash, plus I’ve got all my media apps on a ps4 (Netflix, Amazon etc). consoles serve all my needs with the least quantity of funding or work from my stop.
