[Joystiq] Crysis 2 vs. Crysis 2: PC and Xbox visuals compared - Page 5

post #41 of 106
That 3000$ comment made me lol. My sig rig which I just recently updated to cost around 1000$. Such a biased article. But anyways Crysis 2 just isn't exciting me like the first one did. I might give this game a pass until its 20$ on steam.

Please let me beat the idiots with my keyboard who always mention a $2,000+ PC for gaming. Christ it's annoying.
The only game I can't max and run 100% smooth is Metro 2033 on my $700 PC.

is crytek going to be at PAX East this weekend? I could go for a response on the patch business. I've never seen a very good patch but if anyone can do it they can.

PC = more expensive, looks better. Console = cheaper, doesn't look as good as PC.

Both are fine alternatives for having some fun.

$150 ssd
$70 hd
$100 memory
$200 psu

Your only at $1500.

That's exaggerating prices. Most people don't need the $300 processor. My processor was $200. A lot of people don't pay $300 for a motherboard. Again I pay'd $200. A good $250 video card can handle this game fine. A ssd. Again most people don't have one. $200 psu. Again you can get a nice, nice, nice psu for $150.
LOL, Yes it looks good, however to invest all that money just to play a $60 game is silly... If its your hobby to spend alot of money so be it..

You have to admit that the $299 xbox 360's 10MB graphics card (ATI Xenos) with a Tri-core CPU does pretty good against your 1.5gig graphics cards and your overclocked QUAD core CPU's....

A $299 investment with ZERO upgrade costs for years to come... Now that's the cost effective way to do it...!

Don't justify cost as most of us have already invested time and money into our rigs. It's not like we're all going out to build a new rig for Crysis 2.

So, it really comes down to $60 vs. $60 (the cost of the game, we know this), so, for $60 for a PC Gamer, you get: better graphics, resolution(s), controls, 3D, multiple monitors, and hopefully, DX11!

if they made consoles upgradeable then we could all be on the same playing field or at least caught up with the latest Direct X. This is the technology age. No reason to believe that people can't learn to upgrade a graphics card in a console if the console maker makes it easily accessible to the user.

Finally, some hope for PC users.

EDIT: Sorry if repost or the format is mangled.
$3000??? I spent about $2500 for EVERYTHING. Includes 2 24" monitors, PC, Mouse, Keyboard, Headset, Speakers. Just saying, $3000 is for the super PC buyers, not for your average PC gamer.
