I'll do a shot with the high-res and one without.

Then play it at your native resolution on ultra, with full AA and AF, and with grass shadows.
Just so we can see the difference between console and PC, without the help of mods. I do have a few mesh/texture mods running right now, but I can easily disable them and hit up a new save. Perhaps if someone can, get a video capture of the first cutscene, then get a snapshot of looking over the river out of Helgen.
The point of this is to see the difference between console and PC - we know mods will do a lot more.Also:
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim = 1280x720 (likely FXAA, more aggressive edge detection than 360 iteration)
Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim = 1280x720 (likely FXAA, less aggressive edge detection than PS3 iteration)
Consoles don't display in true 1080p, it's upscaled.Edited by AcEsSalvation - 7/24/13 at 6:38pm
