[GS]360/PS3/PC Comparison - Page 11

post #101 of 164
Why is this still discussed? The difference in graphics is obvious but will also cost you more. You get what you pay for. It will always comes down to preference. One is not better than the other. I'd say I have a good PC but I still do 95% of my gaming on PS3.

exactly the only thing a pc is not packing is the kitchen sink

tbh, this is a really ridiculous and pointless discussion. Its quite obvious that a console can be beaten by a top of the line PC. What a stupid comparison. Its literally comparing apples with pairs.


and tbh, we won't see exclusive titles for PC, cause of costs reasons. Its more cost effective to build games for one single unit rather than a system of variety of systems which have different configurations. It just makes logical sense. As there are less variables to mess around with. The resources required to build is enormous.

PC gaming won't really die...but its going to change and its going to have to adapt. Provided there is decent input from the two graphics manufacturers.

So they compare a 3 year old console and 2 year console (give or take some months) with an up to date PC?

Owner of PC and XBOX360 I still find 360 more pleasurable and easier to play. I dont have to worry about hot fixes, patches, compatibility, driver issues with xfire/sli. Pop game in, no need to install or pull my hair out over a new game.

Back in 2006 (when the current generation of consoles was still called the next generation) we did our first Xbox 360 vs. PlayStation 3 graphics comparison. Since then we've released rounds 2, 3, and 4, but we hadn't touched the third rail--the PC--until now
I wonder why... Did this guy forget PC gamers existed back in 2006 or what?

This test fails imo.

i too agree with all the comments, this is a stupid test. pcs and consoles are in different leagues.

i own a ps3, which i love to to play when friends come round,but also enjoy to play when on my own, just plug in and play, no issues etc!

but for a good gaming experience i always go back to the pc. and it makes it hell of alot better with 5.1.

Though im pretty sure i would play more PS3 if i could get my x-fi to decode the DTS!

I got thru 7 pages of this thread. Who wins?

IMHO, gamespot is a business, with a business minded agenda. They feed the audience what they want, packaged nicely just how they want it. A few posters commented on some of the screens, noting that settings could easily have been adjusted, or they were unable to reproduce the quality of some screens.

All systems have there place, so who wins? Wii, haha, clearly it must be the winner, the others systems are vying for second place.

Under what conditions will you get a fair comparison? Do you compare only games that have simultaneous system releases? Does the PC use hardware from when the PS3 / 360 were released? If so, does it use the prices of then or now? Are online subscription fees included? Etc, etc, there are a ton of imbalances.

Right now, as I sit with 2 dead 360s, a Wii, a PS3 (early xmas gift), waiting for my Q6600 and gtx260 FTW to arrive (if they every will…), I think its fair to say all platforms have their pros/cons and fanboys.

Personally, I prefer to buy a game for the system it was originally designed for. 20 years on, I still like Nintendo’s offering, albeit limited as far as 3rd party releases. I’ve given up on 360s, yes I know I can send it back to get replaced, but its not free or cut n’ dry if you are overseas. The PS3 fills the void left by the 360 for me. Ultimately the difference between the games on the PS3 and 360 is no big deal. I’ll take my shooters and my MMOs on a PC anyday.

So who wins? Is it Microsoft, Sony, Intel, AMD, Nintendo or NVIDIA with blurred vision from the dollar signs of all the money we spend? Or is it the gamer, spoiled with more choice and flexibility to enjoy the latest entertainment and innovations from these companies?

The winner is…

This is kind of a silly comparison if you ask me.
I agree with that, people need to dish out near round £1000/$1500 for a computer that just beats a PS3/360. Its ludicrous.

Hmm, I wonder why I feel the need to quote myself.....

Seriously, how many people come in here and post and don't care to read the entire thread? I know it's alot of work for you to train your eyes on the words and to sound them out, but the end result is worth it, trust me.
Few games actually run at true 1080p on consoles, most are just upscaled if you have a 1080p set. Some run even lower than 720p, like the PS3 version of GTA IV which only runs at 640p. It's pretty easy for a 9600GT to crank out decent frame rates in almost any game at 1280x720 (720p). Check out any review of the 9600GT, with less pixels to display at 720p than the average 17"-19" (1280x1024) LCD display it will run almost anything. The reason I mention the 9600GT is it can be configured into a rig as follows:
E5200/P45/2GB DDR2-800/9600GT/160GB HD/DVD-RW/450W Corsair PS/Case
For right at $500 shipped you can have a rig that will surpass either console. The reason this is so easily accomplished is because their GPUs are outdated now.
