Humm.. ultra isn't coming cheap. At least my gtx 760 is recommended.

Still that's a quite a leap between recommended and ultra.

And when you add Anti Aliasing the 980 won't even be enough. Well time to upgrade in 2 years..

GTX970SLI overclocked is crying.

Hasswell-NeverCold848d ago

Nobody really needs like x16 antialiasing. =)
I'm usually fine with 1080p res and maybe x2 antialiasing.

Meltic848d ago (Edited 848d ago )

i hope gtx 970 can manage ultra. It says 980...

--bienio--848d ago

Im not sure but I heard 980 is only 13% better than 970 so we might be all right,plus Sli is one of the options...so dont worry:)

Meltic848d ago (Edited 848d ago )

Yeah i hope the game is good optimized so the fps wont be all over the Place...

Articuno76848d ago

TBH I'd imagine it would be fine if you just drop a few things down here and there. After all the difference in shadow quality between high/ultra in most games is pretty much impossible to discern. And even the difference between medium-high isn't that big. Yet the performance gains are massive.

cpayne93848d ago

What does ultra mean exactly? 60 fps at 1440p? Or 1080p? 16x AA?

I'm sure you will run it as well as you want it.

This is exactly why I prefer gaming on consoles. Sure, you get better everything on PC IF you have the $$$ to keep up with the speedy technology. On a console, you update it every now and then, everyone plays on the same playing field and it's CHEAP, compared to what a top notch PC could cost you.

ninsigma848d ago

There are pros and cons to both sides but people need to get off eachothers backs over what platform they play on. Pc guys need to stop acting so superior over console gamers just because they can't /don't want to pay loads of money for a power house pc. Equally console gamers need to stop disregarding the benefits of a pc just because it costs a lot. Just because you don't wanna fork out that much doesn't make the benefits irrelevant. The sooner the happens the better. We can all go about doing what we want eithout being harrased about it.

Not directed at you blackhoode. Talking in general.

"everyone plays on the same playing field and it's CHEAP, compared to what a top notch PC could cost you"

And you dont see whats wrong with your statement there comparing a Console again top notch PC, thats like comparing a Kia to a ferrari then claiming "oh the Kia gets me from point A to B".

Level the playing field A PC that provides simular or better experience than console will always be cheaper than gaming on console. Reason being there are too many hidden costs on console that you ignore the calcualate down the road:

Pay to go online
No mod support (so games die fast)
Pay more per game (usually 10-20usd)
No BC (so rebuy games from last gen)
expensive hardware accessories

A PC may need 200-300usd GPU upgrade every 3-4 years, So does a console need replacement every 3-4 years (stop kidding yourself if you think the console will last the full term of the gen, it wont). When you will rebuy the same console 3-4 years after release you are still stuck with the same power output, buy a 300-400usd GPU on the PC every 3-4 years and you will be multiple times ahead in terms of power.

People don't add in those costs because they forget to do so. They don't count them because they are post-entry requirements that they don't mind paying.

It's not about total cost per se, but where people feel they want to put money down vs not doing so. People don't mind paying for games, they do mind paying for the ability to do so (opt-in prices). Games are an attractive proposition because they each offer an experience worth paying for, even at a premium. The box that plays them however simply facilitates that.

cpayne93848d ago

I mostly agree with you, but I have never had a console fail on me. I would assume the console will last full gen, and beyond it honestly.

I also want to mention that the price factor is only applicable if you build your pc on your own. And don't even get me started on gaming laptops.

oIITSBIIo848d ago

At the same price of console you can buy a better PC, it's that simple.

Khajiit86848d ago

No you really cant. Count in O.S and everything else. Show me a build to prove me wrong that includes all the following for no more than $400 before taxes.

CPU
GPU
MOBO
Case
Ram
HDD
PSU
O.S
Keyboard
Decent gaming Mouse because regular mouses suck for gaming.

Seafort848d ago

@Khajiit86

As long as you add in HDTV, yearly subscription for online play, 2nd controller, bigger HDD, cost of games compared to PC and any of the other little things you forget you buy when playing on consoles :)

It all adds up to about the same price but PC gaming looks and plays better with cheaper games :) It's also the ultimate multimedia machine.

The 10th Rider848d ago

You're being incredibly unfair here. We built our gaming PC back 6 or 7 years ago for around $400. It still runs today's game pretty well and it hasn't been upgraded whatsoever. For $300 we could easily upgrade it enough to run most games on the higher settings. If you really do your research it's not nearly as expensive as most people make it out to be.

Khajiit86848d ago (Edited 848d ago )

You dont need to play on ultra. You dont need to upgrade every time a new card comes out. If you think ur console is playing high-ultra settings you should stop. I got my 970 a couple months back, it should let me play all games on high-ultra for the next 3 or more years. Do you know how many 360's last gen I went thru in 3 years? At least 3 in 3 years because of RROD and drive errors etc.. Havent had a PS3 die on me but I sold them in 2 years or less for upgraded ones.

For me the best looking game on PS4 was P.T. I laughed the other day when I played P.T because of how much better just about every game that 6 years old or newer looks on my 970.

As you can see you can have a Pc with 400$ that can do more than a console, spare me the other parts and OS crap, everyone has a pc in house that has a monitor and keyboard and mouse plus they can use a hdd too, how many use original OS on PC? so yes a PC can be made with 400$ you just need to have knowledge.
