Nevertheless, we present you ten powerful arguments for purchasing a powerful gaming PC instead of a console. Starting with open system structures and modding options through to technical superiority.

    Origin [Electronic Arts]
    uPlay [Ubisoft]
    Battle.net [Blizzard]
    The classic computer game scene and its shops are changing! While in the past computer games could only be purchased on CD or DVD, nowadays the content is offered directly for download via the Internet and numerous game platforms. The only requirement for the large downloads: fast internet.

    There are also many providers of so-called direct downloads and “game keys” on the Internet. After purchasing a CD key , a game can, for example, be activated and downloaded directly from an online game platform such as Steam, Origin, uPlay etc. Nevertheless, one should definitely compare the prices of the providers for the games. Often the games on the online game platforms are not cheaper than in stores or from other download providers.

    The games library can usually be accessed from anywhere.
    Installation and deinstallation are quick and easy (one-click).
    The games can often be kept up to date automatically via updates.
    Many providers save the scores in the cloud.

    Disadvantages of online gaming platforms
    Internet access is mandatory (at least for activation)
    The games are usually linked to an account.
    The games cannot be resold.
    Not always the cheapest price.
    Age query for USK games can be bypassed quite easily with most providers.

    Steam [Valve]
    The Steam platform was developed by the US company Valve Corporation. The client software for Windows systems has been around since 2003. This originally provided new updates for Valve's own computer games such as Half-Life or Counter-Strike. Games from other manufacturers have also been available on Steam since 2012. The offer has been constantly expanded, so that Steam is probably the world's largest and most popular online gaming platform today.

    In order to play the purchased games, it is necessary to download the free Steam client software and create a Steam account. All games are presented in detail, and the minimum hardware requirements are always given. There is also a large Steam community in which extra forums are often set up for the games.

    Origin [Electronic Arts]
    Origin is an online distribution platform for computer games from the American publisher Electronic Arts (EA). What began in 2005 under the name EA Store and EA Download Manager, was not continuously developed into a store until 2011. Origin also enables customers to purchase computer games over the Internet and then play them using the associated free client software. The platform has an offline mode that allows most games to be played at any time regardless of an internet connection. However, an internet connection may occasionally be required, at least for activation.

    Origin is now required for almost all newly released PC games from Electronic Arts. In addition to EA's own games, hundreds of game titles from other manufacturers are also offered via the shop. The creation of a user account with Origin is compulsory, all purchased games are linked to this account. Games can usually be saved via external cloud storage.

    uPlay [Ubisoft]
    The French game publisher Ubisoft launched its own internet distribution platform for computer games and software in 2009 with uPlay . Internet access is required during installation to activate the distributed games. The cross-platform service currently offers just over 50 games.

    Every player who uses a Ubisoft game must create a Uplay account. There is also a community here and, as a special feature, an in-game reward system with which points (“units”) can be earned through special actions. These are not tied to the game in which they were earned, but can be used again across all games.

    Battle.net [Blizzard]
    Battle.net is the online gaming platform of the American game publisher Blizzard Entertainment. The platform offers the option of downloading Blizzard games that have been previously registered with the account. The game developer would like to bring all of its titles together on this uniform platform in the future. Basically, all Blizzard games can be connected to your own account, older Blizzard titles (Diablo, Starcraft, etc.) should be integrated step by step.
