First of all, don't talk down to me. I'm not an idiot.

Second of all, this is not a Pc vs Mac debate. This is a Personal Computer, i.e. Macs and Pcs, vs. Console gaming debate.

Riddle me this Batman. Do both Macs and Pcs use Mice and keyboards? Then we'll consider them the same family for this debate. We can get back to the Pc vs. Mac thing later.

I was talking about what Dhampy said earlier. About Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 being PC only. Which they are not.

And this is for dhampy..

See the difference doesnt take a genius to figure it out.

As for talking down, I didnt talk down to you.. I put the important info in CAPS so people can understand.

I just wish people would use common sense to figure things out.

Or do I need to show more examples to prove what I am saying?


EDIT 2: TO show im totally right.. Look at the EA box art for Sims 3.. Top left Corner PC and what is that MAC? OMG

Also riddle me that..

PS2/3 and XBOX/360 can use mice and keyboards, are they PC's?

Infact ill make it easier for you.

If MAC's in the software market is PC's as Dhampy and others think.

How would a MAC owner know what to buy when everything is PC CD-ROM/DVD-ROM. Exactly.

Yes, yes, we all know you're some great computer genius who's made all these games and own your own business and blah blah blah. Unfortunately, your argument is irrelevant.

The discussion is about "PC's" vs "Consoles". Not "Windows" vs "MacOS" vs "PS3" vs "Xbox360" vs "Wii".

You cannot separate one half of the argument and not the other.

Also, your "OMG OMG MACS ARE SOOOOO DIFFERENT" point has been wrong for quite some time now. Retail Mac computers are sold with Windows pre-installed. So, no one has to worry. People who buy a Mac do indeed know that they have to find ones labeled "PC DVD-ROM".

And also "PC" is an acronym, so is capitalized. Whereas "Mac" is merely a shortening of "Macintosh", and is not capitalized.

Sounds pretty damn condescending if you ask me.

Until you made a point that Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 is PC only.

Then it was open for discussion.

MAC's use emulation for a windows environment, its not the same.

Just like PS2's and XBOX's can emulate previous consoles from years before, doesnt make them N64's etc.

And since you went the route of the first sentence in your last reply.. Heres one for you..

If your gonna spout out information... get it right, instead of getting it wrong.. Its embarrassing.

And you also find Dragon Age for PS3 and 360.

PS3 and 360 are both consoles. Windows and MacOS are both operating systems on PC's.

Yes, PC only. Not Windows only.

And now you're splitting your argument down even further in desperation.
