You're asking two separate things. 

 

1.  Which is better?  Depends on specs of the PC.  

 

2. Which I prefer?  I prefer PC.

PC = Productivity, Gaming, Streaming, Communication, Programming, Art, Finance, Music, Business, etc.

XBOX = Gaming, Streaming, Basic internet.

 

I think you'll be better off with a PC in my humble opinion.

There are a few games that are console exclusives that I want to play, but PC overall.

It depends, one is not better than the other. This is very much a "right tool for the job" situation. 

 

Xboxes are cheaper than PCs all around. Cheapest you can make a somewhat decent gaming PC with a GPU is about $600, while the Xbox Series S that will perform similarly is $300. If you just play games on Game Pass, the Xbox will just be an overall better system for you at all time for about half the price, or just better if you go for the Series X which is still cheaper than that aforementioned PC. Use parts do exist for a PC to get the price closer to that $300-400 mark, but so do used Xboxes. The Xbox interface is also just much better suited to a couch than anything on Windows. Plus, games are more optimized for consoles than they are for PC. Take Elden Ring for example, the PC port was more or less broken with the amount of hitching it had when originally released for PC while the console game was perfectly fine.

 

That said, if you don't just play Game Pass titles, PC does have the advantage of more frequent game sales (if you just buy all your games, a PC will end up being cheaper in the long run), you don't have to pay for online play, your games carry over past upgrades, as well as a much bigger variety of input methods, games, hardware, game modding, etc. that make it much more unique. 

 

Personally, I haven't owned an Xbox or a console for 10 years now, sticking entirely to the PC market, and have helped people convert for the aforementioned reasons. That said, there are a lot of times where an Xbox just makes more sense (you're on a budget, you want to game on your TV, you want to play console exclusives, you don't want to think about a game possibly not working for whatever reason and needing to modify an .ini file to get it to launch, etc.). One really isn't "better" than the other, they just have different advantages over each other that you need to weigh for what would be better for you.

A xbox is cheaper than a midrange build and far better in terms of graphics/ performance, but the games cost a lot but on pc discounts are often so on a short term when compared to a midrange pc, xbox is better, but on the long term PC is far better.

 

for me personally i'd always prefer a mini itx pc or a nzxt h1 pc over a xbox

and i haven't owned one in my life, in India if you ask your parents to buy you a thing that costs 5 digits in ₹ just to play games, they won't say yes, if they do you're either hallucinating or not really Indian.

For casual gaming and on-couch multiplayer: Xbox. I also use mine as a media centre, as it has 4K output and a 4K Bluray player. I do a lot of gaming with my wife as well, and it's just easier on Xbox as it's hooked up to the TV in the living room and it's just plug and play. I used to think gaming on consoles was easier due to the lack of updates you'd have to install, and not having to install games period, but that ship has sailed - it's still easier to get into a game though, since it's just a matter of turning on the controller and it logs you on with your own profile and all that jazz.

 

A PC is more than just gaming and entertainment to me - it's also for productivity. Other than that, I play specific games on PC: genres that don't translate well to consoles (management games like Rollercoaster Tycoon, Planet Zoo) and games that aren't on Xbox or Switch (Horizon Zero Dawn). I also find myself playing more singleplayer games on PC.

 

All in all, I'm happy with my PC and love gaming on it, but to me Xbox is definitely better (well... consoles are better, not JUST Xbox).

MS has never threatened to eliminate 99% of my PC's usefulness if I'm not online 24/7....only to later renege on that idea after tremendous backlash....

i use both. if it's about affordability, ease of access, xbox for sure imo. otherwise, i'd go with whichever my friends are running for the social aspect, but i like crazy graphics for single player games, which is why i use both(had ps5 for a bit, didn't have good reasons to keep it though).

Now that Playstation is putting its games on PC, I'd say PC easily even though it'll be twice the cost of a Series X for the same performance. Still, best of both worlds on games. Plus PC Game Pass is $10 a month while XBox Game Pass is $15 a month.
