this is not fair how pc gamers can edit on graphics and visuals while ps3 and xbox 360 players can not ?
Dovahkiin  +   864d ago
Thats because all PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles are identical when it comes to power, and graphical capabilities. Whereas there are millions of different setups a PC gamer could have, and they have to try and cater for everyone. Plus, the settings on a console game are generally the best that that console can run said game.

It's nice having the options on PC, but they are not necessary nor are they viable; on a console.

I gave you a bubble vote for an intelligent comment.

eh? I thought people prefer console gaming because its easy and hassle free. Why would they want customization when they can just insert the disk and start playing the game?

If they allowed settings on consoles it would only be to lower graphical settings otherwise you'd get a ton of people complaining of terrible performance or consoles overheating.

If you want those options, just get a gaming PC and be happy.

"AC3 isnt out for PC until November 20"

Their commenter made the correction. Thought I'd repost here, since I'm waiting for the pc version. 18% boost, not bad.

Tried the new beta driver and it gave me a boost in Planetside 2 by 3-4 fps on high settings. But still didnt fix the random slowdowns when nothing is happening.

Btw, it also is free to play on Nov. 20th.
