One thing you forget to factor in with the cost of xbox series x would be a new TV...This is one thing lots of people tend to forget when factoring cost of gaming PC vs console gaming...new gen consoles is around every 7 years so you'd be assumably buying a new console approx. $500 and new TV as that is most likely out of date as well...for instance PS5/XSX you should have a TV with HDMI 2.1, VRR, ALLM, etc. Very few TVs currently have that, the cheapest of which is $1000. Bringing the cost up to $1500 while yes still less then a good mid range gaming PC, most people these days are also using their computers for more than gaming and with a lot of industries going work from home you can bet that a lot of people are also using a PC for work purposes, so if say the person must at minimum have a cheap computer for work they spend around $500 for a cheap PC that will last 2 years (once the warranty is up it'll die lol). Lots of factors that when you break them down to the nitty gritty they basically come down to the same cost.

This website is biased against consoles.
Not everybody has a PC let alone a gaming PC or even wants one with the hassle/cost and all.

Problem with PC gaming though is all the hackers/cheaters for this reason alone since BF1, BF5, Apex Legends, COD I didn't have a choice but to buy a console to play those games and others. All the hacking is what's ruining PC gaming for me and others I know.

Plus there are just some games that have a bigger pool of people playing them a lot longer.

Plug and play easy to use, headphones work right away no software to fiddle with, less expensive.

It could take a monster rig to compete with the Xbox, it will cost a lot more then $500-600 to build a PC to over take the Xbox sx/PS5 due to also console games are very well optimized and PC games usually are not.

Consoles get a lot of game sales all the time plus the new Xbox is BC with all current games which is a big plus going forward..

Come on dude. Who says people don't already have a decent TV. Also saying you need to buy a new TV every console gen is kind of ridiculous. Do you buy a new monitor whenever you upgrade or get a new PC ? Also you don't need a TV with all the bells and whistles. Good try though.
