PC Building Simulator available on console

There's nothing quite like building a PC with a PlayStation 4 controller.

PC Building Simulator is part game, part tutorial on how to piece together the different parts and components necessary in creating a functional gaming PC. Previously, PC Building Simulator was only available to PC gamers via Steam, but has since branched out and is now available on console. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to build a gaming PC on console, PC Building Simulator is well worth checking out!

PC Building Simulator is available now on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. While it’s fun to bring PC Building Simulator with you thanks to the portability of the Nintendo Switch, we have to admit it feels weird to play on Xbox One or PlayStation 4. Not because of the controls, but because of the idea in general.

You’re literally building a gaming PC from scratch while holding an Xbox One or PlayStation 4 controller in your hands. There’s a clear upside to having PC Building Simulator available on console though, and it’s that it shows die-hard console gamers how easy it is to build a gaming PC from scratch. Rather than focus on the debate over console versus PC, why not have both?

PC Building Simulator is far from a barebones experience as well, letting you get a feel for every aspect of the build process. You can choose from over 1,000 different computer parts from companies like ASUS, Intel, AMD, and Nvidia to name just a few. What’s nice about having real parts from real companies is that your PC build doesn’t have to be fictional.

PC Building Simulator isn't just hardware, it'll also introduce you to internal aspects of your PC build like understanding the BIOS.

If you find parts you like, you can purchase them and create the same PC in real life. Other things PC Building Simulator covers include internal PC management such as introducing you to the BIOS and showing you how to sweep for viruses. Again, we highly recommend PC Building Simulator if you have even the slightest interest in building your own gaming PC.

It’s also fun to mix-and-match parts without having to do all of the work in real life, making it useful to gamers who already have experience with PC building as well. PC Building Simulator is available on consoles now including Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 along with Steam on PC.
