Nvidia has been one of the top manufacturers of PC and gaming parts for some time, and now a sales representative for the company has made the bold claim that PC's are the top gaming platform over the recently released PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Nvidia consumer sales manager Matt Wright was interviewed by MCV, and he claimed that the small form-factor PC's Nvidia produces are what gamers should want due to their computer functionality and overall better specs that can be upgraded over time:

"We are proposing small form-factor PCs to be a viable alternative to the next-gen consoles. Enthusiast players want the ultimate games system and that is the PC...The PC platform is far superior to any console when it comes to gaming, plus you get all the extra functionality that a computer brings."

Wright acknowledges that PC's face an uphill climb in popularity compared to console gaming due to the relatively simple nature of consoles in comparison to the many different complex factors the PC market brings to the table. However, the executive claimed that Nvidia is working hard to make shopping for a gaming PC less complicated:

"We want to make PC gaming as simple as possible and we think that it already becoming much more relevant and appealing to casual gamers,"

The Nvidia employee also stated that PC gaming has the numbers to back up his claims, and he feels as though the tide will turn more towards PC sooner rather than later:

"Steam now has more users than Xbox Live. There is a whole new generation who grew up playing on PC with titles like Minecraft or World of Tanks. There's a huge community who love playing their games on PC."

While Nvidia is focused on making PC shopping and modification simpler, one of their contemporaries is going the opposite way and bringing their PC technology to a home console. Valve, the company behind Steam, announced this year that they are working with many different manufacturers to create Steam Machines. These home consoles will be powered by Steam OS and bring the Steam experience to the living room, rather than keeping PC and console gaming separate. The first two Steam Machines have already been revealed, so the rise of PC and console hybrids could be hitting the public sooner rather than later.
