Ireland’s TV3 says the PC equivalent of an Xbox One would cost 3K
In a brilliant piece of TV bollocks, a segment on TV3′s Ireland AM has come up with some outstanding lies to misinform the public.
In what can best be described as a promotional segment for Microsoft and the Xbox One, the presenter drools over the visuals and says that it’s “the most advanced in terms of graphics, involvement and action we’ve ever seen. It’s really, really good value. It would cost you about 3 grand to put a PC together with this kind of power”.
What? Yes, you heard it. He actually said that.
It’s this kind of garbage spouted on mainstream media that really misinforms the general public about the PC, the costs involved in putting together a gaming PC, and its versatility.
TV people, you need to do your research, we all know the PC is the best option for gaming, it’s the most advanced and lets not even get into the fact there are literally thousands of games at a fraction of the price.
I will point out that the show had an Xbone to giveaway so they were probably trying to oversell it to encourage entries, but c’mon!
