Mid-End GPU - GeForce 750Ti - Runs Battlefield 4 Better Than PS4 & Titanfall Better Than Xbox One

Nvidia has recently released its latest low-end GPU based on the Maxwell architecture and quite surprising, the GeForce 750Ti is able to push graphics and performance similar to those of both PS4 and Xbox One. (Battlefield 4, PC, PS4, TitanFall, Xbox One)

Ha ha classic so glad I built my rig games look amazing still enjoying XB1 and F5 though loving the new tracks.
SilentNegotiator  +   308d ago
So a card that costs almost half of the entire PS4 alone is able to produce better graphics than Ps4 and Xbone? Because 750Ti costs from $150 to about $170.

Gee, who woulda guessed? /s

BTW, I just got a new engine. It costs almost 50% of the cost of your entire car and it's faster. Impressed?

I guess that depends on where your new engine is located. Is it on the low end, mid end or high end? Wait, mid end? Can you put an engine in the middle end? What is a middle end? I thought ends were at the extents and the mid was in between the extents?

Well, either way, if your engine is in the middle of your car, it is likely way faster than my POS!

heres a pc that is less than 500$ and will run the game better then the ps4 and do everything else a pc will do.

didn't put KB/M because you more then likely have those. same with the the monitor. just hook it up to the tv you would use for the ps4. simple. and you can use a controller on most new PC games of you wish.

@ FTLightspeed you forgot the OS, Keyboard, mouse,blu-ray drive, and wireless network card... PS4 comes with an input device and all of the other things above listed.

@ThatOneGuyThere you don't need a bluray drive to run the game, that is what i am getting at. why have it in there? there are little use for CD drives in pcs these days. or a wireless card. you dont need that to play the game.

again, i don't know anyone without a pc sitting around, that they can use the KB/M from, you can download and install windows 7 for free, you just have to pay for update if you want them. and that is only after 30 days.

the PC is a better value all around. as many people in on this site and other have beat to death.
UltimateMaster  +   308d ago
What is the definition of "better"?
Better resolution or better frame rate?

I wouldn't classify this card that better than the PS4. The frame rate drops to 45fps.

I'm pretty sure Dice dropped the resolution on purpose to make sure you would get a steady 60fps. (otherwise, you'd see dips in fps like this card does)

In a game mostly multi-player, fps is better than resolution.

I wouldn't waste money on that card, you'd be force to upgrade to get that 60. I'd go for something more powerful.

@UltimateMaster better as in i can do other things besides play games on it. i can use it to go to college, i can do my taxes, i can use it to make a card for my dear old grandma. what do you think i mean better. lol

the site doesn't say what setting they used in the test for battlefield. that makes a big difference. like you don't need the aa, that save a lot of power, or you don't need high shadows when they look the same as medium. you say you need a more powerful card to get 60 frames, i say just turn down the setting a little and BAM 60 frames.

i had the titanfall beta playing at 40+ frames a second at 720p on a old Core 2 duo 4400 and a 550ti(a pretty crappy old system that i built for fun out of old parts i had laying around) on low and medium settings. hell i had crysis 3 running at low and medium setting at 30ish fps at 720p on that pc.

the point is you don't need to have EVERY setting turned up on pc to get a game playable. you have more options, if you want eye candy, you turn up the setting and take the FPS hit, BUT if you want the Frames, you turn down a couple of settings and BAM more fps. options. one of the best things about PC.

all that said, the second i see a good Halo, i Mmean a GOOD halo game, non of this halo 4 and reach garbage, on the XO, i will buy a xbox one.

@Clunkyd lol this is not about exclusive buddy. this is about the game that are on both and the relative value of the stuff you can do on each.

of course if you want to play those game you speak of, you are getting the PS4. that doesn't speak to ANY thing about whether one is actually has more value than the other. unless you count the value of a few game more than everything the PC can do.

if the games you want to play are on a system than that is the system you are going to play. i already said if a good Halo was on the XO, I would buy it. as halo IS a system seller to ME. even though i have a pretty Badass pc right now.

Fishy Fingers  +   309d ago
That's some fine spin.

Either way, bundled with the remaining components it's still more expensive than a console although also far more versatile. But buying an entry level GPU is never a good idea. It'll last perhaps 12 months before you need to upgrade. A console on the other hand will see you through 5-7 years. Swings and roundabouts.

The additional costs of computer components is made up for by how much cheaper PC games cost. They come out the gate cheaper and drop prices much quicker and lower.

I am so sick of hearing PC games cost less money when this is NOT true. If you don't mind waiting then sure they GET cheaper but they do not start out Cheaper. I have had Final Fantasy XIV since it came out day one and it cost me 49.99 I preordered Castlevania for my PC and guess what 59.99 yep they sure do start out cheaper.... now if you are talking about illegally downloaded games then yea they are cheaper.

"the gpu is priced at £100 ($167 US) at a little over double ($399 US) you get a ps4"
£100 = $137.23, which is less than half of a Playstation 4
The exchange rate from Euros to Dollars is a 37% increase and vice-versa.
£1 = $1.37 & $1 = £0.73 (looks like 27% at $1 but at $137.23 = £99.99, holding a 37% decrease notion)

Volkama  +   309d ago
Steamboxes targetting the price range of a console right now are a pretty bad idea.

In a couple of years time the low end ~$500 steambox will make a lot more sense, but right now a console will trump it.
AndrewLB  +   308d ago
What are you talking about? The lowest spec steam boxes that have been announced wipe the floor with both the Xbone and PS4. Their lowest GPU does 2.5tflops, and it only goes up from there.

Right now you can buy an AMD HD7870 @ Newegg.com for $110, which easily bests the PS4.
Volkama  +   308d ago
Don't mistake me for a deluded anti-PC fanboy. You'd have to strap 5 next gen consoles together to match the specs of my own PC.

I stand by what I said, the consoles beat out an equivalently priced Steambox at the minute. Not necessarily in raw specs, but have you seen how far they managed to push 1/2 gig of ram on the last gen? Naive to think they won't manage to push these consoles beyond what you associate with the raw specs. Over time you'll see games on the consoles that trump what a 7870 can do.

Give it 2 or 3 years though and a low end Steambox will be pushing way ahead.
jukins  +   309d ago
Hmm wonder what the rest of the system specs were. Sure that had something to do with it unless graphic cards have developed the ability to become full gaming PCs on their own.
Fishy Fingers  +   309d ago
i5, 16GB DDR3, SS hard drive. It's at the source. So the other components are somewhat upper tier compared to the GPU but that's to ensure the system bottleneck is the GPU and no other component is causing a spurious benchmark result.

- Who pays for virus programs in this day and age?
- computer desk? Because the price of your couch counts for consoles as well?
- windows? steam os
- Monitor? so a console doesn't need a television?

CPU, Ram, Hdd, mobo, psu, fans and case, very true. <-> usual counterargument is that most gamers upgrade and therefore only need to upgrade some parts.

The idea for the article isn't that a single gpu is better then consoles, but that the strides taken in low-end gpu's indicate that at price/performance the new gen might not hold out for long.
Dasteru  +   309d ago
Only people who know nothing of computers, pay for antivirus software. The best antivirus programs are all freeware.

You realise every GPU made in the last like 6 years, has an HDMI out, and through programs like joytokey, also supports console controllers? You can plug a PC into your TV just as easily as a console and play with a 360 or PS3 controller. Also by your argument, how much does a sofa cost to console gamers?

Windows. Pirate that shite, or if you are against that idea, you can get an oem copy of windows 8 for as low as $95 online. Could use Linux also.

Most people already have a computer that only needs a decent graphics card to play just about anything. Anyone with a Q6600 or early i5 can run most any game with an $110 HD7870, which is more powerful than the PS4's GPU.
DivineHand125  +   308d ago
@AndrewLB Stop talking nonsense. The only people who bought the q6600 or a quad core i5 were PC gamers or people that were doing tasks that needed a high spec'd CPU. I am sure that the majority who owned PCs with those high spec'd parts also had a gpu in them to match. Also idk where you are getting your price quotes from but the HD7870 price ranges from $200 - $350.
Dasteru  +   308d ago
@VanDamme:

Meh. I guess it is obvious i don't support MS much. The only reason gamers still buy windows, is because for the most part, they have no choice.

If MS is going to keep charging $500 for a retail copy of an OS that in most ways is inferior to a $35 copy of OSX or a free copy of Ubuntu, then i see no problem with pirating it. I cannot support that kind of greed and disrespect for the customer base.

For the record, i am against piracy for the most part, Windows is an exception.

That is an OEM copy, it can only be installed once, if the install facks up, you are screwed, if you change any major hardware like the CPU or Mobo, you are screwed. Also after a year or 2 the CD-key that it comes with will automatically glitch out and start telling you it is non-genuine, with no way to fix it. Retail copies of Win 7 Ultimate are still selling in some places for $499. A full copy of Mac OSX in comparison is around $35.

-Super Stardust HD
-Resogun
-Driveclub
-Kingdom Hearts(until 3 comes out)
-The Order 1886

And say these don't matter....this is the reason why I stick with playstation because they keep giving me great exclusives. Graphics are just a bonus for me, never my deciding factor for what to pick. But you politicians can keep talking up your super 2x4k 1000fps pc hardware.

completely agree. While i just bought a PC for 5500$ I'll still love my ps4 for the exclusives. I don't know why every pc gamer acts so immature.

Just for your information, 5500$ may seem like an overkill. But i bought it because i just turned 18, so i got lot of inherit money from my dead grandpa.
Got 500k$ so why not burn it off on a pc with 3x 780TIs :D

$5500 only matters if you know about what your buying or it may have been overkill. Also PS4 for the exclusives which one Knack or KZSF justified the early $400 buy.

For example as rich as you are those 3x GTX 780Ti maybe future proof for 1440p but 4k will require more than 3GB of RAM so the longetivity is questionable unless you only play =>1440p

I own a gaming PC, as well as a PS4, PS3 and Xbox 360. There's nothing wrong with saying that consoles have some good exclusives, because they do. But PC also has good exclusives. All platforms have them, not just playstations.

As far as your claim about PC gamers acting "so immature", sorry but Sony fanboys take that cake and eat it. You hardly ever hear a PC gamer arguing with an Xbox fan or a Nintendo fan.

Right. We are the clueless trolls. And what about the hundreds of PC exclusives that you do not have?

As i said above, it goes both ways. Consoles have their share of exclusives, so do PCs. Pick the system that has the exclusives you prefer, but don't pretend that consoles are automatically better, just because of a few exclusives, while completely ignoring the other side of the argument.

superdong  +   308d ago
@WickedLester IMO, your opinion is wrong... PC exclusives absolutely wreck any single consoles list of exclusives... its not even close. Lets just take 2 examples of games that are clearly worth a damn.

World of Warcraft - By far the most profitable game in history (Grossing upwards of $15 Billion).

League of Legends - Played by more people than any other game with a peak concurrent player number of over 5Million

DoTA 2 - Has a daily peak player number of 600-700k

There are entire genres that you can't really get on console.. from RTS games like starcraft and civilization to MMO's like WoW, Guildwars and EVE Online... simulators like football manager, EuroTruck.

PC makes online gaming on Console look like complete dogshit. Games like Counterstrike, Planetside, Team Fortress, DayZ, Rust, Path of Exile, HearthStone, Tribes etc..

And its not even that they are exclusives (You can get some of these games on console, like Team Fortress) but its how they are support post release... if a game isn't huge on console, its left to rot... while on PC they are constantly updated... Team Fortress is like a completely different game from the version on xbox.

And to top it all off... not only is there a far greater selection of games on PC... the games that are available on a both a given console and PC... will look and perform so much better on PC.

I mean... go ahead... enjoy Titanfall running at sub 1080p with frame rate drops as low as 45 on xbox one....

I enjoy some of the console exclusives, its why i have an xbox360 and ps3, I will eventually get a next gen console too.... but lets not kid ourselves here and pretend these platforms are in anyway comparable to a decent PC.. both in terms of content or power.

No one ever said making good pc will make all playstations in your home disappear...

If someone has enough money for a good rig, they can probably already own a ps4 or can buy a ps4 at any time they want. Meanwhile console-only owners probably most of the time cannot afford to get a pc, so they have to defend their choice since they'll never be able to try the other.

I use pc for multiplats and playstation for exclusives. No one's saying pc is a replacement for anything. Stop being overly defensive.

Motorstorm was boring as shit

demon souls who cares? we have dark souls now which is multiplat.

3d dot heroes is a zelda ripoff

I switch over based on price / performance. I was previously with AMD and now I am with NVidia. It depends on sales, other than that they are pretty much fair competition.

How does it run Halo, Gears of war, Ryse, Fable, Forza.....?
Th3o  +   309d ago
Why would any1 want to run gears? Halo is like Cod now, Fable runs fine on pc if you haven't noticed...and who needs forza when you have Assetto Coretta?

Honestly everyone's argument is very immature, I think each persoon buys their respected platforms according to what you'd like to play, and how you'd like to play it.

I for one cannot play fps games or even MMO games on console. (ofc that goes for RTS game as well) At the same time I <3 my ps4 because I have a lot of friends that use ps4 and frankly it's easy to navigate and just play the game. (especially online is sometimes much easier to join a friend.)

That being said I do spend more time on my pc (gaming latptop since I'm never home) and my Vita. Those are the two devices I can't do without! I use to have a 3Ds as well but I sold it because I didn't like it's online/no trophies (although I do miss my Fire emblem and Zelda:().

On topic, Ofc the 750 ti will be better, it's a next gen low end gpu. While the ps4/Xbox one use "last gen" hardware when compared...you can never be on top for long! Don't foget though, that the ps4/Xbox One are also calculated to consume less power while still performing admirably! (actually this card I think is expected at half the TDP of the PS4 (the ps4 was test at around 137 watts while gaming)

Ironically there are more games on pc from that list of franchises than there are on xbox one. And they all run great.

Info on the card:

GeForce GTX 750 Ti is an upcoming fast-middle-class Graphics Card and the first Maxwell based GPU.
The Maxwell Architecture offers Cores with different technologies. Whereas the powerful Cores will have a 22nm manufacturing process, the entry and mainstream Cores will still have a 28nm technology.
GeForce GTX 750 Ti offers the 28nm, GM107 Core with a SMX count of 5 and thus comes with 640 Shader Processing Units, 40 TMUs and only 16 ROPs, this on a 128-bit memory of 2GB of fast GDDR5. While the central unit runs at 1020MHz and goes up to 1085MHz, in Turbo Mode, the memory clock operates at 1350MHz.

****Therefore GeForce GTX 750 Ti is bottlenecked by its relatively limited memory bandwidth and might not be well suited for 1080p, in some games.****

Still, the card has proven to have huge overclock potential but doing so will increase its very low TDP of just 60W.
Benchmarks indicate its performance is largely better than its predecessor's but Radeon HD 7850 and GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Edition still offer better performance, due to their high memory bandwidth transfer rates.
The most competitive aspect of this card is its very low TDP. You won't find anywhere in the market so powerful that doesn't require any power connectors.
Please note that this card does not support SLI.

middle class, think the price is ok.

The only problem is that it will never run Infamous S.S. since that game is only available on the PS4 so really what's the point? I've never understood this whole PC vs Console bit.

never say never, one day the pc will have a ps4 emulator. I guess there's no wonder you have never understood the whole pc vs console thing if you do not even realise that.
ErryK  +   309d ago
There's no working PS3 emulator so, while a possibility, it's highly unlikely.
amnalehu  +   309d ago
By the time that happens (better yet IFthat happens)Infamous 4 will probably be out as well as the PS5. What I guess you don't get is why does it have to be either or. There are clearly things a PC does better than consoles and there are clearly advantages to devs. and gamers that consoles offer. FYI I've been a PC gamer since the early 90's and a console gamer since the 70's. I am fully aware that emulators are possible. But possibility does not equal certainty or even probability my friend.
starchild  +   309d ago
@amnalehu

What's your point? All platforms have exclusives.

If you are just saying that inFamous Second Son is the most important game to you personally and it is only available on PS4, well fine.

It's funny, though, that you guys keep using this kind of argument because it really invalidates the argument you guys constantly use against the Nintendo and Xbox guys.

You are willing to throw away all of the PCs advantages (and exclusives) because of some exclusives you want to play on PS4. So if somebody's favorite game is on Wii U or XB1 doesn't that mean that they are correct to buy those consoles? And they shouldn't get bashed and derided all the time by you Sony fans?

@ErryK

The PS3's exotic Cell processor is going to be much harder to emulate. It will take some time. But the PS4 is built with pretty standard PC hardware and will be much more straight forward to emulate.
Th3o  +   309d ago
@ErryK

There is no working Emulator bcause the ps3 has a very specific architecture that requires a lot of power to emulate. There already is an emulator that can boot homebrew on, which was predicted to boot and run retail games in 2-3 years.

The PS4/Xbox One run near CPU specs. It shouldn't be too hard to mimic ona regular pc with the proper release of API and software compatibility. The only thing that gives the PS4 an for being very hard to properly emulate would be 2 fold, 1) It's OctoCore CPU (including a secondary I believe for background work) and 2) 8 GDDR5 Ram used for both video and primary sources. Although we might see DDR4 pose a slight pace forward towards the GDDR5 speed, we might not see an emulator for 3-5 years if there is no hack.

Either way it's a shame that infamous isn't out on pc (frankly everyone should experience that game), but I'm glad it's exclusive because usually exclusive means quality:)

The OG Xbox still don't have a working emulator for PC and its using A intel CPU and nvidia GPU.
Hell the OG Xbox is closer to PC than ps4/xone and yet here we are over A decade later no OG Xbox emulation.

@ce773

I believe that is due to the lack of interest especially since most of it's games made it to pc as ports. Being Discontinued early might have played a vital role as well.

I mean we managed to emulate homebrew on a ps3 emulator yet we can't do Original Xbox?

I honestly think that's the reason for the in existent emulator, I mean we have a ps2 emulator and even a Wii one which have more complex architecture.

Also let's not forget that eventually everything becomes abandon ware if there is no interest. Look at Dreamcast for Android, it simply took interest to make it a workable emulator and it runs on old hardware as well:)

You mean generic third person action game #4566077 with no multiplayer so you'll beat it and be bored after one weekend? Oh no what will we do! Oh yeah we'll probably play games that offer hundreds of hours of gameplay and endless replayability......
Hicken  +   309d ago
Because no such games exist on consoles, right?
sorane  +   309d ago
I'm trying to think of one on ps4 or at least coming to ps4, but my mind is drawing a blank. The only real big exclusives I see coming anytime soon are a couple of those single player generic third person action games and an arcade racer. Be lucky to get a full week of enjoyable playtime between all 3. Guess you could with Final Fantasy 14 whenever it's released if you like paying even more sub fees.

for all of you console gamers just imagine how better your exclusives would be on pc and how cheap is micro$haft sony in a lesser extent because its financial hazzard for the overpriced hardware that sell you .Pc will allways have a raw performance in games period deal with it.All that you have are great exclusives but multyplats pc's rule.Consoles are great on the otherhand for people who dont mind a generic experience with games .we had online way before you did and we still have for FREE.All you guys have now its the cloud ;-pppppp.Go buy xbox live and ps plus you probably havent even heard of steam sales have you?I might sound of as a hater but in the end i have the privilage of customizing my game expirience on pc the resolution that i want (1440p) the filters that i want sparce grid anti aliasing the frame rate that i want (100+ fps) and you get what its offered thats the truth.Though i dont have the exclusives of sony which are great though they account for the 2 per cent of what i can play on pc.Go believe their marketing now you are allowed.Talk to me in 2 years where the 1080p native dream will be obsolite on your boxes...sorry thats only for sony .xbots are ruined day one...

"just imagine how better your exclusives would be on pc"

Well keep imagining it for quite a few more years then .

Bottom line is we , as in you and console gamers can't . You want those XXX particular games you get the Platforms , end of story . Or you wait eons for emulation to catch up .

More often than not , except for true fans who will still enjoy the heck of those games , emulating those title wont even provide you anything but a false sense bravado and pride , as you boast about being able to render those in 999999*999999 with Octo linear quadruple²2 filtering . When in truth you'd have long gone toward newer titles on pc .

Mind you the reverse works too , there is a wealth of pc game console can't have access to , or wont ever play in the best settings and condition ... but for this thread , i'm tired of shitty PC master race diatribes .
webeblazing  +   308d ago
pc master race are you serious. are you new to this site. most likely the pc bashing and spec talk in this post are coming from ps fanboys. look at every article ps fanboys bash every platform and if they think the gonna get away with against pc fans they have another thing coming. look at every article on this site. and when the lose an argument which they been touting spec and performance, they go to exclusive like every platform dont have them.

if its not a ps exclusive it doesnt matter right. you talk about render res but pick an article i dare you. what do you see? ps fanboys bashing wiiU and xbone. they getting a taste of their medicine. i agree with you on getting the platform if you like the games, but this clearly happen in every article. and most of the time pc gamers shut them up from bashing others' preference in different consoles. this site is catered to the ps fanboys and we all know it.

ps fanboys are the elitist.

Oh cmon. If pure performance was the reason to get a PC instead of consoles everyone would be playing with them only. I want a decent performance but what matters the most is the games and friends. Playstation has the best exclusives for me while I can also enjoy the multiplats.

"imagine how better your exclusives would be on pc"

Well thats the point.. They are exclusives,PC doesn't have them. You make it seem like multiplats are the only games people should play. They're not..

Duh. All of the current gen consoles were mid range PCs when first announced, and it has been one year for some, 2 years for others. And in that time, those consoles have gone from mid to low. That's just the way the cookie crumbles.

mmm.... cookies.

assdan  +   309d ago
The 750ti would be considered a mid range card, not low end. I don't know anyone who considers $150 low end. Bf4 wasn't optimized that well for the ps4 or Xbox one, and 1080p doesn't mean its running it better. Theres other factors like shadows, AA, texture detail, etc that need to be taken into account, and I bet this article doesn't do that. In top of this, a pc with a $150 gpu would end up costing 600-800 for the whole thing. So there's a lot that isn't taken into account with this.
kx11  +   309d ago
so the point of this article is so understood because of the 1st comment ?!

the point of this article is not flaming PS4/X1 at all the article is meant to prove that this card is a great bang for the money and represent the new Maxwell architecture amazingly

so if you wanted to build a very cheap PC gaming rig that won't cost you 1000$ like some kids would suggest you should start with 750Ti

PS4/X1 are both great so stop this stupidity

the real question should be : where the hell is WiiU from these comparisons since it costs a lot for it's value
john2  +   309d ago
Yeap, the point was that this card is great for what it's offering. As always though, it turned into a PC vs console war.

True PC has a lot of games!....But some are already coming to PS4 and others are in discussion!..But consoles just have the best AAA titles becuz they have they companies behind them and some of which the PC won't see and vice versa!..Now I own thousands of dollars in other tech gadgets but I "choose" not to spend that much on a PC for the sake of "Gaming" the PS4 is gods enough for me just maybe not for some people and that's cool it's called having a "Choice"
windblowsagain  +   309d ago
It's a good card for it's price and will do alot of ppl well for BF4 etc.

BF4 is one game. A really buggy one at that.

I couldn't tell you how optimized BF4 is on console or PC.

Guys quick question, my mainboard allows for CPU's up to 94w, is it possible to go over that e.g 100w? I used to build PC's all the time but I had a few year off and got into it again.

It just shows that we have now a new cheap graphics card in the market. One can upgrade his old OEM PC and get an next-gen console level of gaming PC.

Additionally those PCs usually has good enough CPUs so they can be used for more demanding games and not just action games and shooters.
CrazedFiend  +   308d ago

Jovanian  +   309d ago
You know I really thought this generation of consoles would standardize 1080p and 60 fps, you know, the things that the PC has literally been able to do for years, but as you can damn well see both platforms struggle to attain that without major sacrifices to graphical quality. Looks like we're in for another crippling decade of graphical stagnation thanks to the consoles

@neoandrew: "So what? Any other comparable gpu will fit, performance per watt hasn't changed much, not to mention, most gamers don't use OEMs."

Not many GPUs runs without extra power connector like GTX 750 cards does. GTX 750 Ti is just a cheap way to get even old and limited PCs to okeyish next-gen console level gaming PCs. I don't see the problem.

Nice entry level card. Sure, Intel NUC with Broadwell can do a lot as well if they manage to get 80% improvement as said. Iris Pro 5200 [1] can do quite nicely already.

Sure, not many PC gamers use OEM machines for gaming. They will get their Maxwell 800-series soon enough.

I have a high end gaming PC alongside a 360, wii, ps3, ps4, and wiiu. I have countless of other consoles as well.

This is what I always find funny. When a PC gamer goes around claiming that his PC or that you can build a PC that outperforms consoles. Prodcues better graphics, higher FPS rates, resolutions. Has a larger selection of games and a bunch of other shit they "the pc gamers" are all a bunch of elitist pompus assholes

but when playslaves, xbots, nintendrones claim their consoles produce the best graphics, highest resolutions, higher FPS, even to the point where they claim their consoles are on par with high end gaming PC's it OK and they're not elitist assholes. Then again why am I asking this question on a website completely dominated by sony fanboys?

Hell I see console gamers talk more about graphics and hardware for the last 8 years than I ever see pc gamers do. Especially on this website and others like gamespot, IGN, VGchartz, youtube etc etc....

as I said before I like consoles, PC's and handhelds to play games on. But I can tell by most comments here most of you guys have never gamed on a PC or even built one yet you know consoles are better just because of a few 6-10 exclusive games you cannot find anywhere else that you guys only care for because they're exclusive.
