[CVG]PC offers 'a lot more grunt', says Far Cry 3 dev - but Ubi looking to minimise.. - Page 3

post #21 of 26
In other words "the PC is more powerful but we dont want it to be miles better then the console version so we will peg it back like every other developer out there."

Move on people, nothing to see here. Just another dev spewing crap trying to win over the PC market.

I'd also say that most ports are better than folks here would admit. I've played quite a few games the past few years that were just as I described above, yet called "bad ports" simply because they were ports period.
I think that's just peoples way of saying ports suck, and they do. Nothing has really been built from the ground up with only the PC in mind. It's the little things like in Medal of honor, you can't adjust video/control settings in game or chat while dead. Also not being able to access the exit menu while dead is just wrong on PC. MoH is a good port, but it's still a port...

Yep, only took 5-7 years for that to happen... (not that there was anything to "admit" to--it's just a fact that you can get a lot better results when you're coding for a discrete combination of hardware vs. a mish-mash of stuff for PC's. It was still true even back when the PS3 and Xbox 360 were release that the current PC hardware of the time had, spec-for-spec, more "grunt").

Anyhoo, to address the comment by Ubisoft, all the "grunt" under the hood of a computer doesn't mean much if you don't make proper use of it. I'm more concerned about that aspect rather than an admission that today's PC hardware has a lot more power than 5-7 year old and aging consoles...

Hardware in today PCs is much much better than consoles.
I'm not defending consoles, I hate them. Just stating the facts
PCs will always be better than consoles, even when consoles just come out, they'll be outdated.

I'm optimistic about this. Maybe we'll see some better stuff from Ubi on PC...at least until the next console generation starts

But yeah, the biggest thing they need to work on first is dropping that lame DRM crap.
