Why do people on OCN, im talking mostly to "PC Elitists" keep moaning about consoles holding us back, yes the hardware is insanely outdated
in PS3 and 360 but far out its not like they are holding us back from launching face first into a world of virtual reality, jesus. you guys really over dramatize this argument.
And in 2-3 years they will not be holding PC's back because there are still console games that look as good if not better than most PC games. Yes i know "imagine if they put the PC GPU's to use how good the graphisc would be" Fair enough yes, the graphics would be better, but how much better?
It will be IMPOSSIBLE and i repeat impossible, for them to create a system that can match PC GPU's and still make it AFFORDABLE to the public.
Most PC guys moan about the PC being the best but seriously, what are you actually moaning about? more AA??? smoother lines and better textures? Is it really going to blow you off your seat to see a few better textures? It's almost as if PC gamers are strictly about graphics, its not even like most of you support a genre of game that makes PC gaming more mature or advanced, most still just play generic crap like CoD and crysis 2 on PC. The games you would think are hardcore PC genre type games which require thinking and skill are barely mentioned on OCN.
I'm all for great graphics and PC but after a while it just starts sounding pathetic.
Play games, enjoy games on PC and consoles, quit moaning because the game industry wont change, its just the way the world is.
You're kidding right? Console has not been superior to PC for MANY years now. I'd say the last time they came even close to being superior was in the Playstation/N64 Era. You ask "how much better" All I've got to do is point you to games like Skyrim and Batman Arkham City. Heck, even Tomb Raider and Far Cry 3. The difference in quality is very noticeable.
I do understand the "Affordable" part that you are referring to. By the time I am done with my current build, it will be close to 3 Gs I have spent. But why should that hold back developers from developing for the PC, then porting them to console, instead of vice versa? If they did that, you would notice the difference in quality even MORE than before, and that's because the majority of games that are ported from console to PC barely tap the potential of even mid-high range cards like my 660 TIs, without the gaming community coming together and creating graphics Mods for them. For instance, there are many mods out there that allow Skyrim to take full advantage of the graphical prowess of even your high-end video cards, and the differences between those, AND the base are absolutely beautiful. It can be made to look like a "next-gen" game now. Far Cry 3, or even the Crysis games are other perfect examples of games where the PC version simply outshines Just watch these comparison videos, which should be proof enough of PC's superior quality, and why they should dev for PC, then dumb down for console, IMO.
