Max Payne 3 for Xbox 360 or PC?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I was wondering which version to get, given the Rockstar track record of extremely poor and disappointing ports to the PC.
I'm almost done LA Noire on PC, and while the resolution is higher, there's not any visible difference compared to the Xbox version, and the frame rate is stutter-y more often than not; this is not because of the 30fps cap, because I've played smooth 30fps games and they are more than playable, but LA Noire's and GTA4's frame rate jumps and micro-stutters all over the chart.
Also I felt more immersed in the game when I played the Xbox version, which probably resulted because of the comfy couch, big display and controller.

Anyway, for the people who have both platforms, which one will you, if mind you, get it on?

PC, no question.. I've been gearing up for Max Payne 3 to the point where as soon as I heard that it was in development, I (didn't find my old Max Payne 1 & 2 disks) bought it all again.

There's no other way to play Max Payne..

It's indifferent, just buy it to which platform you feel more comfortable with smile.gif Unless you plan on using mods or other stuff you can't really do on consoles.

If you have the power I would say PC. If you are more comfortable with a controller simply pick up a USB Xbox 360 controller and call it a day.

Considering my hardware, PC.
If I didn't have a hardware able to play it on highish settings, xbox.

The controller it's a non issue for me, because I just plug it on my PC as well.
