What if next gen consoles...

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
What if the next generation (Playstation 4, Xbox 720 (tongue.gif) , ..) has 4xAA on EVERY game, they all support 1080p and run at 60fps (most of the time) ?

Would you change to consoles if they did?

I probably would. I don't notice anything above 4xAA 1080p anyway. The only reason I prefer PC gaming is because of its AA support and all my games play at 1920x1080.

I'm just fed up sometimes when a games gets delayed/freezes/stutters. Is it vertical sync causing it? Is my pc too weak? Is a background program running? Is the game just badly optimised? Am I imagining it?

These are the questions I usually get when a game stutters...changing drivers all the time, trying to find the problem.

Gaming would, in my opinion, be a lot better if we had a hybrid between pc's and consoles. Why? Everyone would use the exact same machine. If a stutter is found, almost everyone should encounter it = easier to fix. When you encounter a stutter on the pc, there are many causes (we all use different systems/programs)

A console with PC performance/graphics would be awesome I think. What do you guys think?

Yes it would be awsome , yes it would be extremely expensive =)

wouldnt work, consoles are deasigned to be able to be manufactured by starving children in ethopia for as little as possible. If ANY single part of a console was even low quality it would cost too much, they scrape the bottom of the barrel for the cheapest parts taht work and duct tape em together and say GIMME 600$. Only exception was the XBOX 1.

I thought the ps2 was pretty good.

Current gen consoles (ps3/xbox 360) are plain horrible in my eyes though. Some games get reviewscores of 9.5-10/10 and they get 10/10 graphics too.

When I buy the game and play it....I notice a horrible framerate with 'ok' graphics. That's what bothered me the most with console games.

It's like everyone with a console doesn't notice the bad graphics/framerate and reviewers too confused.gif

i agree, Blops on PS3 comparied to PC is not even a dispute, PC wins, EVEN THOUGH the PC's got major issues.

MW2 is the same, GT is the same, everyone's like OMG, THESE GRAPHICS LOOK LIFE LIKE FOR GT4/5. i love the game, don't get me wrong, but i look at it and all i can say is, EA did a better job in graphics with a FREE NFS game on the pc, NFS World.

What if CPU's started being 6GHz with 20 cores for 50$? And RAM 2000 MHz and CAS5 Timings for 10$ a stick?

Not going to happen.

consoles are usually restricted to 30fps , at low resolutions this makes for horrible gameplay id rahter not when i can play games on my pc maxed out settings 8xAA 1080p why wuld i even look at a console .... ew , its just for practicality and mainly for kids that dont know how to build / tweak / own a pc u just turn it on and slide in the disc and ur off ... Pc gaming is real gaming .
