and how is the statement about not having to upgrade ignorant? id love to see you play BF3 on hardware released at the time xbox/ps3 was. rolleyes.gif

Headsets marketed to the console gamers cost a lot more than the ones that arent. And maybe the 7800gtx, although the only reason battlefield runs on the xbox is because its so optimized for it, just as every other game on the consoles are. AND bf3 on the xbox runs at less than 720p with low details, and has half the amount of players online.....

AMD Phenom X2 550 3.1Ghz (now this did come out in 09 but is is pretty much identical in performance to a Intel C2D E6700 that was out in 06)
4GB DDR3 1333mhz RAM
GeForce 8800GT 512MB (released in 2007 but is actually slower then the 8800 GTS that came out in 06)
Win7 64bit
@ 1440x900 and
Another exampleSystem Specs:
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.66 GHz
GPU: Nvidia 8800 GTS 512 MB
RAM: DDR2 2GB - 800 MHz
Monitor Resolution: 1280x720p
Graphics Settings : ~ Medium
So yeah ye oldi PC's form 06 can still run BF3 and with better graphics then consoles.


8800GT was not XBOX era. XBOX was released in late 2005. 7800 GTX is the comparable card and even that 8800 runs terrible. that thing is laggy as hell.

Well that really depends on how you look at it. The geforce 7000's where a pre Xbox 360 card while the 8800's where the first post Xbox 360 card.

The xbox 360 was released for 05 christmas and did pre-date the the 8800 GTS by some months but the PS3 on the other hand came out at the earliest in Japan on November 11 2006. So it actually came out after the 8800 GTS as that was launched 8 November 2006. So does that not make the 8800GTS from the same era as the PS3/Xbox 360?

An you did say "id love to see you play BF3 on hardware released at the time xbox/ps3 was."

Also, something like a console is going to ahead of the curb hardware or else it would not be revolutionary and would not stand up to time. Tech has advanced a lot since 2005.

yes it "plays" it, but its terribly laggy almost unplayable. consoles may have crap graphics but at least the game plays smooth enough to not give you a headache. nobody is arguing that consoles arent inferior to PC in certain aspects like graphics, but there are plenty of reasons for the average gamer to buy a console over building a PC.

another reason i like playing games on consoles more is there are way less cheaters on consoles then on PC.

Did you not look at the youtube videos at all?? BF3 was running a very decent ~45FPS without any huge drops and that was on medium so if more FPS was needed it could be gained.
As for cheater I don't know as there is no hard facts about consoles vs PC cheater amounts at least none that I have seen.

I was playing GTA IV on the PS3, the frame rate dropped to under 15FPS. That is not "smooth" at all.

Exactly, GTA always freezes up and just doesn't load items on the xbox. BF3 lags a ton all the time. Forza lags if there is any tire smoke. Cod never lags unless its the connection (which does not count) and a ton more games lag up.

Never noticed BF3 or Forza lagging myself. GTA I can't say as I haven't played it.
