perhaps when your console stops using terrible low rez textures, i would considering calling your console HD, but until then, and that then happens to be the next wave of consoles. You dont have and HD console, you have a console that can manage the lowest versions on the HD end, but at the sacrifice of HD textures, which means you are running a high res, but lack the crisp and clear textures that is what HD is meant for anyway. Sounds like a win to me................................................ ...

Its called seeing the truth.

Think of it this way. BLURAY is HD, but if you took a vhs and put it on bluray, sure it would be HD but the quality would still be VHS.

Same goes here, You can run the game at HD resolutions, but if the textures arent HD, then the entire thing was pointless.

I have no doubt that mmos can be done on consoles well, but talking about HD when most of the time the games on 360 and px3 dont meet HD resolution standards, and never meet the texture standards. I'm sorry i have to call BULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

if anyone here can honestly find a game that does both and isnt simply a single room level. I'll take it back.

on comments about consoles being HD

PS3 graphics looked like **** compared to my SLI 9600GSOs back in the day, not like it has improved since then- and certainly not in comparison to my 460

also consoles lag more than my PC does too

a PS3 at 1080p is the same as PC gaming at 1920x1080 on lowest settings. But I only play on max settings, stutter free...

Then you've never obviously played God of War 3, Uncharted 2, MLB The Show '10, or Metal Gear Solid 4. Only games I play on PC are FPS, that's the only place they should be played. I can't play any of those games on a PC can I?

what point exactly are you trying to make? that certain systems have exclusives? Great, want me to list 100 on PC for you also?

Those dont qualify as HD either anyway. Take a closer look at your textures.

To be fair, the only one of those games I'd consider playing is GoW3...

No what I'm trying to point out, and you are failing to realize, is that those aforementioned games all look so much better than any game I've played on PC. Only PC game that can come close is Crysis, but how many people could max that out in it's hay day?

ha.ha.....ha.

just about gave me a heart attack with that joke.

I wont deny that they look good, but aside from character models, the ground, grass, barrel textures and wall textures are all of what would be consider poor to average quality. Esp when you consider the poor texture quality that the PS3 has compared to other systems, they have the lowest video memory of all, which means they have to have the highest texture compression. They use high quality textures on things that are important, but use low quality on things that they dont feel need to look great because people wont be stairing at them constantly.

Good use of Depth of field, motion blur, particle effects and other things can mask and keep people from seeing the bad textures.

Art direction and animation can do amazing things to improve the look of a game.

90% of the time when they do side by side comparisons with xbox games, the xbox usually has better graphics quality and higher frame rates, which is mostly do to the extra memory for textures on xbox, so they dont have to compress the textures nearly as much. You can attempt to blame it on SONY trying to make it hard to program on, so that devs wouldnt max the system out so fast. Which is an entire lie. There are 2 reasons to make your system hard to program for. #1 being you want to scare devs away from making a game on your system. #2 you want your game to look worse and perform worse than the xbox version. Xbox is way easier for devs to work on, and if you havent noticed they didnt max out the system in 1 try, the games continually get better looking, just like they do with the ps3, so why did sony mark it hard to work on?
