This wasn't always the case. Consoles used to be competitive with moderately priced gaming PCs and even looked better for a year or so after they came out. This new generation of consoles is going to look worse than cheap gaming PCs on their launch day.

I think you are going to get a surprise.

8 Core CPU, AMD 7850/7870 GPU with 2Gb VRAM (maybe more or less because of the unified memory) is hardly a "cheap" PC.

Nothing wrong with consoles - they sell a lot. I still own a PS3 just for the sake of Heavy Rain and The Last of Us. I personally prefer 'the best of' IQ hence I own a pricey PC, but I can certainly understand that that puts me in the minority.

Neither of the next gen consoles will have a 7800 series gpu. Not if the 1.2(xbox3)/1.8(ps4) TFlops reports are true. It'd be a 7700 series at best.

A 1TB (or bigger) HD and the ability to download every game over Xbox Live would mean a lot more to me than graphics.

Incorrect, current rumours are that the Orbis at least is based on 7970M (which itself comes with 20CUs but orbis has some chopped off) 14CUs with a further 4 'special purpose' ALUs, 32ROPs, 80TMUs, running 800Mhz core speed. The 7970M itself is 2.2TF, with the disabled CUs the 1.8TF number being floated about for Orbis means it has a GPU that is somewhere in the region of desktop 7850.

The Durangos 12CU GPU is more in line with 7750/7770.

When I get home from work I just want to lean back in my couch, turn my brain off and turn my console on hurr durr.

This is where Steam Big Picture Mode could make things interesting.

If you have a mid-high range gaming rig (not the one Valve is 1st putting out), hook it up to your tv and use an xbox controller on the pc...
You get the best of both worlds.

The funny thing is that you don't get many PC exclusive games so multiplatform games are developed for the lowest common denominator which is a console, so having a $2000 PC isn't going to mean much if you are running a game meant $350-400 console spec levels.


Actually that's where the problem resides; we could had much better graphics with a PC exclusive and that could push graphics even further, but unfortunately games are made for the target that sells more: console gaming.

that BS, recent "ports" have better textures and the option of maxing AA and AF makes any port 100% better on PC then on console.

lets not even mention what community can do, just look at Oblivion, fallout or other games with big communities, they can makes games 1,000% better.

I don't know what the big deal is. Anybody with common sense and knowledge knows that a gaming console will never match a PC in terms of power and graphics. The cost of making a game console as powerful as a PC is way too high and most consumers (except rich kids with rich parents) will never pay $2,000 for a gaming console.

Wish Crytek would shut up, getting sick of seeing them in the news bragging about their Engine.


I prefer this to douches who sold themselves like Mark Rein.

I find it laughable that come PC Gamers are actually getting excited that they may not being able to Max out Crysis 3 and achieve a playable framerate. Seriously, what kind of gamer gets excited about not being able to play a game?

Who gives a crap if PC gaming is technically better.

Most games that I play or would won't to play are not even on PC's.

Take for example Sony's MLB The Show that is the best baseball game bar none and it will never ever see the light of day on any PC!

Plus in my opinion MLB The Show already looks wonderful on the PS3 so I can only imagine what it will be like on PS4 :)

The only good games on PC's are first persion shooters which I never play anyway.

Trust me the PS4 and Xbox 720 specs are more then enough to please most gamers.

You can't polish a turd, PC ports of console games usually have lower fidelity with regards to models, levels, textures, etc.. no matter how much bloom, motion blur, depth of field you plaster on.


Actually, you can.

Honestly, I'd like to know where this crowd is myself. I don't see anyone like that on Neowin, but whenever a PC vs. consoles war flares up, it gets mentioned. Do we not know how to ignore idiots by now? Or does everyone have the same instinctual reaction of flipping out because they read stupid comments on YouTube?

So thin-skinned we are is all I'm gathering here.
