PC graphics look so much better than console.
No opinion - I have a lower-end PC, and don't own a console.
However, Black Ops 2 is actually smoother graphics-wise than the original on the same hardware with the same settings, so apparently they have done SOMETHING right.
I have both set to 1280x720, 2xAA, no AF, all other settings at Medium (the reason for the wimpy settings will be clear soon).
Hardware is Intel Q6600, ASUS P5G41-M LX2/GB, 4 GB, AMD HD5450, Windows 8 Pro x64 with Media Center.
Both are as-shipped (no patches, since I'm not doing MP yet).
The other reason I've not applied any patches yet is that the hardware will be upgraded as soon as possible (target is i5-3570K, 16GB, ASUS P8Z77-V or ASUS P8Z77V-PRO, AMD HD7770).
Apparently, shooters still have three hardware tiers (Crysis 2 notwithstanding) at least on the PC - developer/publisher minimum requirements, developer/publisher recommendation, and the real requirements. That is my REAL frustration these days with PC gaming in general, and shooters in particular (though some RTS titles and even some racing games and "civ-type" games are starting to commit the same sin).
