I might pick up this game when it's released, the 360 version runs so awful it's almost unplayable.

JDW3301d ago

Hopefully the relatively low system requirements, even for recommended specs, means that the game has been well optimised for the PC.

Can't wait to pick this up. My PC's had nothing to munch on since COD4 (yeah, I stopped playing it).

This is why I done away with the 360. I have the PS3 and my PC which gets almost all the good xbox 360 games and even allow me to use the 360 controller. Good games like uncharted, MGS 4, Ratchet and Clank, Resistance Series, LBP, etc. You have to get a PS3 to play them.

was there any need for that comment? you talk like you are the voice of all gamers.Dose it occur to you that some people don't like using PC's for gaming?

I only have a laptop and never buy one above 14inches because of mobility (i travel quite often).I have been out of london for 2 months,so my laptop and 360 serve my mobile needs perfectly until i return this weekend.Where i am there is no broadband services but i have bought during this period Assassins creed,Halo 3 and now Lost Odyssey.

So please stick to the topic and don't turn it into one of those mine is better than yours comments.

I think you both have valid points. It's hard to justify spending money on upgrading the PC and getting a 360 when there is so much overlap in the games that come out.

On the flip side a laptop is great for plane trips and hotel stays, but I would much rather play on my comfy Lazy Boy with my big ole TV on a console then sitting at my desk in front of the PC monitor.

Different strokes for different folks.

The specs here can play bioshock/cod4/gears in a higher resolution than the consoles. Clearly not 1920x1200 because you dont have that kinda machine spec'd out here..

The entire argument about PC gaming goes down the drain when it comes to underpowered multiplatform titles. For Crysis and other PC only titles that are actually advancing in graphics, you need another videocard/more ram etc. But I mean Mass Effect was supposed to be one of the graphical console show pieces, and it runs on a 2.5ghz single core machine with a NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX or higher.

Its good for PC gamers on a budget, because you won't miss out on anything multiplatform related. But you will for newer games like S.T.A.L.K.E.R 2, or that Dracula game.
