PS4 or PC for San Andreas?

Debating between buying a PS4 or a gaming PC for the GTA series. Ease of controls is the biggest factor for me along with ability to dupe missions and control frame rates and such. I don’t really care about ability to use mods so that’s irrelevant. I kind of don’t like the ideal of playing on a keyboard but I can work with it if there’s benefits to playing on the PC. Either platform will be a major upgrade from the mobile app I’ve been using. Sorry if this isn’t allowed or in the wrong section, I’m new here

I personally (don't like mods &) prefer PC as you can control the FPS and such. Plus you can play with controller, but switch to mouse for more precise aiming (e.g. in SA's Zero mission Air Raid, etc.) on-the-fly.

Additionally: Once a new PS(5) comes out, upgrading can be costly. PC is a bigger entry price, but if you buy smart, upgrading parts to keep up can be cheaper...

You have to know whether you just gameplay or want to do modding on the side and have a good system, I would suggest you PC because it is cheaper than the PS5 version

Also given some of the issues with the releases it helps that you can just mod out whatever you don't like; not to mention the cool stuff being added every day.

"Ease of controls" ...you must not know, but these days you don't have to map keys for Xbox and PS controllers for many new PC games. That's a headache of the past. It's done automatically for you.

I tried playing an old game from 2006 that would not work with an XBOX ONE controller (it was the old 2006 World Cup game in case you are wondering).  Games do not age well.

I am voting for PC. You can use controllers, if you really dislike keyboards and mice, with the help of ginput afaik. Plus I think controls are more customizable with a keyboard.

Get it for the PC, because you can mod the game to perfection. So many great mods out there for San Andreas, the PC offers better graphics and 60 frames per second. You can use PS4 or Xbox One control pads for PC too, you just need download one of various free applications that will let use control pads.

 

But if you really well and truly are not bothered about mods, then just buy it for the PS4 or PS5 (Definitive Edition for PS5).

If money isnt an issue, then PC basically offers everything that PS4/5 does but more. If you have the money i would suggest PC but buying a PS5 or even a PS4 is still perfectly fine, you cant go wrong with either. 

Also with PC you can still use a controller like normal, you arent forced to use mouse and keyboard. But in the 3d trilogy, especially the originals, i strongly recommend keyboard

Wow.  A TON of serious misinformation being put out here. 

 

Putting the defining reason why to get a gaming PC over console (aka replayability/long  shelf life of game title due to mods), a superior fps, graphical/cpu performance/storage capacity etc. experience, I'm going to assume you're not trolling. And the comments you made above were done out of pure ignorance.

 

And without further ado, I present to you the following gaming aid:

And that gameplay control option is in addition to the 1E+06 commands you can configure to play the game using the keyboard alone.....

For me, playing it on the PC enhance the nostalgic feeling of it. While I love my PS4, I always prefered to play GTA games on PC.
