Wow that is a blur fest on the 360.

Comparison is pointless.

Console gamers.. Dont care about graphics. Its why they game on 6 year old hardware.


Bickering over pixie differences doesnt = caring about graphics.

sure they do, look at what happens when 360 and ps3 games are compared. Or even when a new console comes out. Or better yet, when a new uncharted game comes out.
"Console gamers.. Dont care about graphics."

You have said that 11 times I think.

Console gamers care about graphics.

I think the 360 version of the character is drunk. Everything is so blurry!
Alan wake is the same.

540p 30fps on 360 lol.

I think console gamers are just aware that "graphics" consist of more than simply the sum of a game's tech.

console gamers prefer buying a system and having support for it for more than 5 years without having to buy new hardware at a not too high price.

PC Gamers prefers buying a system with high specs to run their games to the max and are ready to pay a bit more for a whole different experience of gaming.

Console gamers just prefer getting the more bang for their bucks (console-related), hence why the comparison between 360 and PS3. Or they're simply just fanboys

This comparison is bull crap. The PC has been sharpened, the 360 blurred. It's quite obvious.
showtimefolks  +   548d ago | Well said

we care about graphics but we are not dicks about it like some of you pc gamers. PC is better than console there i said it, i am a console gamer only.

its like every article pc gamers have to come and tell us how awesome pc games are, yeh we get it but do you get the MS,Sony,Nintendo exclusives? do you get a lot of games from RS day one at launch?

do you have DRM?
Do you have Piracy issues?

Isn't PC's piracy the real reason we have online passes?

we care about graphics but with our games to e God of war looks stunning, to me the snow in Uncharted 2 looks stunning, to me halo 4 looks stunning

go ahead tell me how great those games would look on PC, But guess what we have em on console while y'all don't so you win some and you loose some

can't wait to Buy ps4,xbox720 while you buy a new PC or keep upgrading it every 2 years, yet my 7 years old console keeps delivering stunning games

its not about the tools but how you use it lol

It isn't that console gamers don't care about graphics, it's that they want to get the best graphics that they possibly can given their financial means. If you can't afford a 1000 dollar PC to get Crysis 3 running on max settings, labelling that person as someone who doesn't care about graphics isn't exactly fair, nor smart. It's like labelling starving people in Africa as "people who don't care about food".

Long story short: I don't hate consoles. But they do represent some very old hardware and they constantly show the limitations of such old hardware. Don't get me wrong, some of the games on the systems are fantastic, but it's stupid to pretend as though they're just as good as PCs. The thing with PCs is that they are constantly evolving. The thing with consoles is that it's just not their nature to evolve. It's for THAT reason that PCs are better gaming systems.

Before people mark this as trolling and hating on consoles, keep in mind that it was a comment explaining what is mostly wrong with console gamers and some of their inane arguments rather than the consoles themselves.

PS. My comment was too large to post. But none of your arguments are either factually incorrect (concerning DRM and PC piracy causing online passes, since Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3 had them) or your statements cross over to consoles, too (console piracy is incredibly rampant, the least so in PS3).
d3nworth1  +   548d ago
True console gamers dont care about graphics. I game on both PC and Ps3 but mostly the Ps3. Not because i dont care for graphics but because it more convenient. Plus I know every game that comes out for it will run. No need to worry about system specs. At the end of the day its the same game. I dont see the point of nagging over pixels.

WoW the Xbox360 version looks like utter GARBAGE! The player is either drunk or has cataracts cause it's so blurry and just imagine how crappy the PS3 version may look as multiplats usually are better on Xbox360.

.....and just think the PC version is not even running on MAX graphics so it will only get better and then a High texture mod will come out and COMPLETELY destroy Ultra settings.

Consolers don't care about graphics.........Cool Story Bro cause if that was true then Xbox and PS2 would still be the consoles of Today!

This comparison is just further proof that New consoles are LONG over due for updated GRAPHICS, Better A.I., and MMO capabilities!

so Yes it's more than Graphics cause console A.I. sucks and consoles need to be able to handle MMO's next Gen.

Also you consolers NEED games driven by Gamers like Eve Online, DayZ, Wasteland, etc. and current consoles can't handle this.

Are people that thick in their head, that a 7 year old console is being compared to a updated pc?

If compared to a 7 year old pc hardware, then it would've broken down.

A more sensible comparison is console vs console.

Why does BF3 look great on a PC then on a console? Because people update their pc whereas console don't.

Some comparison are just retarded.

LOL that was funny ahah xD

But anyways, about the pc and the console... I bought my laptop over 2 years ago and still plays most of the games in high settings.. like Borderlands 2, DmC, Batman Arkham City, even Far Cry 3 I can play it with normal and some high settings with no problem.
And when I bought my laptop it wasn't a big laptop it was an avarage laptop.. and after 2 years is still running strong!! You don't need to have a FU*KING power rig to run most of the games... just a medium pc will max out like 80% of the games ;) that's why I din't by another xbox 360

@chukamachine I agree and looking at the pics I don't believe the graphics will look like this on the 360. If you look at the pictures in detail the full 360 picture is blurred out where you would expect the distance to be but not the gun and health items.

I don't expect the 360 version to look as good as the pc but I don't think the 360 version of the game will look like this web site has made it out to be.
1nsomniac  +   547d ago
What do you expect on a console that's coming up to be a decade old it's done amazingly well. Definitely on its last legs though.

The disapointing point out of this comparison is how little the PC has moved on :(

^$200 is a great gpu. Not everybody can afford $500 or $800+ monsters.

Although I admit I have a GTX 680 but got it for $400 last year. I don't ever see myself paying above that for any GPU ever. The last one I did was a GTX 580 for around $550 when it was first launched only for a couple years later for it to be worth $250.

So yeah, $200 for something like a GTX 660 or Radeon 7850 is Grrrrrrrrrrrrreat!

@SlyFoxC: $200 can get you a respectable graphics card these days that stomps today's consoles and more than likely are on par or possibly better than next gen--especially if you pick them up when on sale. You don't "need" to spend the $500+ that some of us do.

It just depends on how much you're willing to spend and at what settings you want to play at. When it comes to PC its all about choices. I've known people that bought "weaker" cards that still max out most games just to play at lower resolution (especially useful if hooked to tv as not as close as a monitor anyways so difference isn't as pronounced).

Still, probably not near as strong as a high end card (unless used and good deal), but its all objective when it comes to PCs and their users anyways. It could still have been a great upgrade on what they had been using ;)

xbox shots are correct. The webite is showing a True PC-Xbox comparson. They are showing the difference that you would see on a 1080p hdtv. The blurriness, lack of detail, etc... is how different the xbox version would look compared to the pc version on the same screen.

ok now streach those images you posted to fill your 32" to 50" screen that you play your console games on and that is EXACTLY how bad it will look on console

your looking at the screen minimized i bet which is compressing the shit out of it and it will never look that crisp on an actual tv while playing

and even while compressed in the images you posted, you can see how very low res the trees, the brush, the cement, all looking like last gen, ancient, 8 year old textures becasue that is exactly what they are, everything on console looks 8 years old to me.

now imagine that screen you posted with 10x higher textures, lighting, shadows, anti aliasing and resolution and thats what it will look like on pc

I know how low res the console versions are since I've taken my own pics in the X360's 1080p setting with my own hardware and yes they are blurry but this site has made them look even worse.

They look more blured and the contrast looks weak as shit. It's like they've purposely chosen the worse settings for X360 in regards to Reference Levels, HDMI Colorspace and thats if they even used HDMI.

Going by the pictures it looks more like Component was used and well Component isn't the best quality picture in todays world when you can use HDMI.

Why even bother? The latest in graphics card vs a 7 year old console. I have a gtx 560 ti that will run this game nicely in high settings and if this game is 3d compatible it makes it that much better on pc but back on topic why even bother comparing it to the 360. The 360 is a good console but should be compared with ps3 graphics of crysis 3.

Of course the game looks better on a $700 gaming PC than on a $199 console.

annus  +   548d ago
My PC I bought before PS3 was released could run the original Crysis, and that looks a lot better than the 360 version of this, so I would say it's safe to say that it would look better if it were possible to play the PC version on DX9 or 10.

Also, almost everyone has a PC/laptop. The price between getting parts for a gaming computer or getting a console and a laptop aren't even that far off (would cost more at release for a laptop+console).

My point wasn't the fact that I couldn't play it, it was that a PC built before the current generation of consoles can still produce better graphics than the consoles, but you have proven to me that you are probably a 12 year old by using a similar 'I know you are but what am I' style argument, so I will just leave alone.

I'm honestly both a console gamer and PC gamer and I have some titles on both. You're playing the same freaking game and it's really not that much different. I'm interested in seeing better animations than better graphics. Crysis's animations have always been really stiff and unrealistic to me.
