PC if you are going for all the DLC for the games.
Reasons;

-way more gametime
-actually allows you to stream anything (like spotify) while playing
-you know you want to command panthers more than shermans
-with all dlc you have 3 factions to play (Germans, Wallies, USSR)

The only advantage I see in OoB is the supply which is better represented and allow strategy of cut off etc.. but everything else PC is doing it better, the welldone scenarios design, AI is a bit better in PC, the amount and variety of units/ maps/ factions and of course the faster game play.
However I play both, they are great B&P wargames, but if I choose one it will be PC.

Here's another vote for PC. But I wish there was a way to play a DLC battle as a stand a lone scen (like the basic game battles can be). If there is a way to do I haven't figured out how.

Does the DLC even activate with anything other than the main campaign starter game?

Order of battle is more to my personal liking, Panzer Corp II yet to be seen.

I like Order of Battle better. Feels more tactical and less like a puzzle to be solved. Both are good though.

Actually I already have Panzer Corp and never installed it for some strange reason. Does it come free with Allied Corp or Africa Corp? Yippeee $2.99 towards Battle Academy II now. It's like Christmas in September.

I have to say I much prefer Order of Battle for much the same reasons.

I didn't see that in the opening version. I saw a lot of Panzer Corp in it.

When OOB gets the "promised" skirmish mode, it will be OOB. Until then OOB is going down that well-trodden WW2 route of PC, and I have all that Panzer Corps DLC to play already - plus a few great mods. However, I do like OOB's editor better.

So I would choose OOB - in anticipation of future enhancements.

That would put it over the top for me also, the "skirmish" mode. It's what Panzer Corps lacks is that random map random units feature so everything isn't always the same an easily figured out or totally scripted.
