[GS]360/PS3/PC Comparison - Page 3

post #21 of 164
For as much time/dedication I put into my PCs, there is no way ever I'd buy a console version of a game that is available for PC...that isn't RE4.

I've always wondered what it would be like of everyone out there had the same core system (i.e. P45, 4870, Q6600, etc.)

Don't get me wrong I love my PC but I'm just pointing out that I can see why consoles appeal more to other, lesser-knowing, non-OCN-forgoing people.
I get what you're saying, some people like it simple. I don't mind having to do a little extra work to the get the game going, knowing that it will look and perform even just a little bit better. I for one though haven't switched drivers since 177.83 and I never have any problems to speak of. Crysis, FC2, FO3, L4D all run fine, but GTA IV has been a bad egg since the get-go. It wants more CPU power than I can give it being at stock clocks. So all I've had to do is pop in the disc, install, and play; everything except for GTA IV.
It doesn't cost a whole lot more to go with a PC over a console, most people have both anyway so instead of spending $300 on a PC and $400 on a console just spend $700 on a decent rig! Although you really can't do anything about the troubleshooting side of things, which is the biggest reason consoles fair so well with the general public.

After all the years of PC gaming I have to say I am moving towards consoles now because

1. There cheap to run lol
2. No fuss gaming
3. Online gaming is easy especially with Live.

You know I've never thought about it like that. Who doesn't have a PC these days? I like your logic on that topic. Don't forget that if someone were to develop a fairly large library of games they're saving about ten bucks per title.

"Not a very well done comparison. At least get the brightness and contrast the same!"

"Also, they should have had full size images available to us. Not the little 800x600 images they showed. I want full 1080p resolution images from the consoles, and 1080p or more from the PC (to showcase a PC's ability to produce higher res. images)"

"Plus everyone needs a computer that's half way decent. Why not spend that $300 you would have spent on a console to buy a video card!"

Will not read the thread or the posts...its obvious of course. The MODERN consoles do a great job with graphics and physics but anything past about 800 bucks in a gaming rig rapes that. Anyone who sees dif is blind.

Especially in Fallout 3. God, the PS3 version sucks. I dislike that stupid thing with GTAIV on the 360, I think I'll rebuy that game for the PC. And dear god, did someone shoot the shadows person on the PS3 copy of Dead Space? :BARF:
the shadows in the PS3 version didn't turn out that way for me. I never saw that once, and I would have because that pic looks stupid.

Well, when you consider that PC games are $10 cheaper than console games, that XBL has a monthly fee, and that anyone who owns a console also owns a computer makes the whole "which one is better for the money" argument a completely moot point since they both (in the end) will cost about the same....the PC will cost more up front, and the console has higher running costs.

It really comes down to:
Do you want some extra power or simplicity?

Let's not forget a PC does - well - everything else a console can't do.
