How much gaming PC can you buy for the cost of a Xbox one?

The Potato one on amazon is 349 with a download code for titan fall. Turns out for the same price you can build a very capable gaming PC for around the same price. Looks like the low end of the market is going to get very interesting in the next few years.

Re: How much gaming PC can you buy for the cost of a Xbox one?

It's a fair point. This technically wouldn't be as powerful as an Xbox One, but then this could do a lot more than the console. When it was full price, you definitely could build a more powerful PC but now the price has dropped, it is more competitive. For the record I own an Xbox One and a gaming PC. I like my Xbox One for lounge convenience but my PC wipes the floor with it really
