PC Building Simulator, a game in which players can create monster PC gaming rigs, is now available on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Before you start asking too many questions about the cognitive dissonance of building a virtual PC on a console, know that PC Building Simulator isn’t just a game about building PCs.
You may already be familiar with PC Building Simulator. For those that aren’t, it is what the name implies. In free mode, you can virtually build any monster PC you can dream of using OEM licensed parts from makers including AMD, Razer, NZXT, Nvidia, Cooler Master, and more.
PC Building Simulator is a game at its heart. The story mode is a quasi-RPG that has you starting with nothing working in your uncle’s shop dusting off old computers for dimes. Eventually, you will be repairing and building custom high-end PCs making lots of money.
In addition to name brand parts, you will have access to the motherboard’s BIOS and software like 3DMark at your disposal. So you can build, test, overclock, and benchmark your creations.
For those who have never put together a computer, it can be a bit of a learning experience as well. It may even inspire one to give it a try in real life.
PC Building Simulator has been available for $20 on Steam for a while. As of today, you can grab it from the PlayStation Store, Microsoft Store, and Nintendo’s eShop for the same price.
