on PC at max settings looks better than KZ3. Yes, I compare console games to PC games since a game which is on a console and PC, then it´s not exlusive.

Mark my word on this one and use this to laugh at me 'till your hearts content if I'm wrong
Rage will not look as good as people seem to think it will on consoles when it launches. It's not even Killzone2 level at this point on consoles.

What you've all seen so far is smoke and mirrors. On PC is where you'll see Rage's graphics looking like we've seen. The console versions will look much mutted than what we've seen today and those KZ2 comparsions will look stupid when you see the thing on consoles next year.

Is Rage a codeword for Killzone 3 or something?
Every time I read an article about rage most of the discussion is centered around Killzone 3?

Just your typical game x looks better than game y. When, of course, neither game x or y has been released.

The reason Rage is always mentioned with KZ3 is because everyone knows that KZ2 graphics can not be done on 360 (and we know this because they haven't been done). So, 360 fans say, "Look! Rage has better textures!" When that's ALL Rage has. KZ2 (yes, I said TWO) has better lighting, better animations, better hit reaction, better particle effects, etc etc etc. And KZ3 will run at 60fps, too. Plus, KZ3 has already shown more variety than Rage.

Rage is riding a wave of hype
Carmack was behind the times during the PS2 gen. While newer and better developers were pumping out visuals like Jak 3, Ghost Hunter, and God of War, Carmack (who was part of the Xbox division's board of advisors) did nothing but complain about the Emotion Engine and how the PS2 should had an intel processor.

Nowadays there are many better developers and vastly more impressive technology and truly dynamic visuals.

Rage: Outdated technology. Outdated visuals.

this is how i see it
60fps seems perfect for online competitive play, while 30fps is just fine for the single player. when i played both KZ2 and CoD online it didnt make a bit of difference to me because i learned to adapt.

i learn to adapt to KZ2 control scheme and i loved it; i wouldnt use any other control scheme to play KZ. as for Rage being 60fps its no big deal most games this gen are either 30fps or 60fps.

A $200 videocard runs Modern Warfare 2 at 1200p 4xAA at 100+ FPS, while consoles did 600p at 30+ fps with no AA. Therefore, I don't think it will take much to run RAGE at 60fps(which implies you have v-sync enabled) 1080p on PC if consoles are doing it at 720p.

PC specific features such as Ambient Occlusion however do drop your frames down considerably.

"at 30+ fps"

You did a nice work downplaying MW2 on consoles, didnt you? I dont care about the game, but it is not just 30+ fps, I would say 50fps average, at least on PS3.

RAGE is a pretty plain game. I do agree it shouldnt be that hard to run it on a PC.
MorganX  +   2034d ago
And how much did the rest of the PC cost? And how well did it sustain the 100+ FPS throughout the game?

Given the quality and sustained performance of consoles, a high-end PC to deliver the same overall sustained experience is going to cost you 5-10x what a PS3 or Xbox costs.

Running it, and running it right are two different things.
Letros  +   2034d ago
I don't know where you shop(or where you took math) but anyone can build a PC for $600ish that would run circles around PS3/360 multiplatforms.

And the 100+fps is an average, not a maximum.
wicko  +   2034d ago
5-10x? No, no, and no.

You can build a PC that can give the same quality as a console for about $400.

lol, 5-10x.. so, $1500-$3000? Just, wow.

Equivalent settings on PC to console games and resolutions do not require anything like powerful hardware. A mere Radeon 4670 starts to provide console besting visuals with more resolution and filtering. Its a 65 dollar card.

Modern warfare 2 will usually average well over 40 frames a second on such a card @ 1280 x 1024, maximum details and 4 x AA. Console version averages about the same @ 2 x AA with reduced details, and just under half that resolution (1024 x 600).

Of course the intial hardware cost of a PC is more than a console, but it can do so much more. Most people use a Pc, so why not have one with a decent graphics card added in? Its games are considerably cheaper which easily recoups its cost versus consoles and their expensive games, peripherals, online subs etc etc. Already worked out that the first six months of this year i have saved over 150 dollars on games alone if i had purchased the console versions, and we havent even reached the peak period for releases yet :-)

PC illusion...
A 360 costs $299. You can't build a PC that can run Mass Effect, Splinter Cell...etc on $

For $300 you get a new 360 with 250gb hard drive, a head set, the best wireless gaming controller ever made and access to the best on line service with the best looking and playing games ever made. There is no comparison. The PC has the best Tech demo's made that nobody can run on their PC's. Every PC is different, meaning every PC gamers experience is different. Comparing PC gaming to consoles is apples and oranges. END OF STORY.

BTW...let me know when PC has a game running like this for $300...LOL. PC gaming is struggling right now, that's why they are moving over to consoles to make some money.

Please, post a link or components for the $400-700 PC that can run Resident Evil 5 from start to finish with the same quality and consistency as a PS3 or Xbox.

No slowing to a crawl while something reads or writes to the HD, whether it's a game or Windows, no sound skippling, screen tearing, frame dropping. I really wanna see what you come up with ...
wicko  +   2034d ago
Please name a console that can completely replace a PC? Can't do it? Closest you can get to a PC is with a PS3, but even then it isn't a suitable replacement because you can't run whatever software you want on it (with the exception of linux back when otherOS was implemented). A computer does so much more than gaming, so expecting a $300 PC to match a $300 console is just moronic.

You could get a Radeon 5670 that costs ~$90, it will do 1080p RE5 with avg fps of 43fps and minimum fps of 30. You could probably find something even cheaper to match the console's 720p performance.

$30 case

$20 dvd drive

$47 2GB of DDR2-800

$40 250GB HD (7200rpm)

$20 kb/mouse

$50 mobo (with 10mir bringing it to 40 but we'll do this without MIR)

$39 PSU

$69 CPU

Total: $405

I know its hard to believe, but PC gaming isn't nearly as expensive as you think it is. Consoles aren't just magically cheap. These aren't even the lowest prices, and they're all in Canadian too, so it would probably be cheaper in the US.

We're not trying to replace a general computing PC with a console. People here are saying you can replace a console for gaming, with a $400 pc and get equal consistent game performance.

I've been building PCs since brain dead 286's and the system you spec'd will hiccup. It will not play RE5 from start to finish with no serious frame drops or stuttering here and there.

If you want a PC that can play games acceptably, sure. But you cannot get console performance without compromise for $400-700.

ALL console buses are optimized throughout the system to maintain their throughput specifically for audio and video. There are no background processes that ever steals CPU cycles, etc., or causes disk reads/writes.

You can build a system that has so much power when these things happen, they are not noticed at all during gameplay, but having build many, many systems big and small, you can't do it in the price range you're talking about. We just have to agree to disagree.
Letros  +   2033d ago
MorganX the days of hiccupping in games are long gone when PCs were introduced dual core CPU's and large amounts of RAM with high bus speeds, i.e. 4 years ago.

RE5's MT Framework is actually a great engine, and will run on the vast majority of PC's across the board. What makes you think that RE5 on PC is optimized any different than consoles...I think what your trying to say is that PC games are bad ports? In that case I can see some instances when your correct(Saints Row 2...), but that is the engine coding, not the hardware capability, which comes down to lazy developers, kinda like how a lot of PS3 games run and look worse than the 360 version, same thing.

BTW here's your PC for $550, Pretty impressive framerates@1080p if I must say myself.

Great stuff letros. That configuration that tomshardware knocked up would obliterate resident evil 5. My laptop runs resident evil 5 better than the consoles. 1280 x 720 and 30 frames is so easy to reach these days, resident evil 5 can be run better on a 65 dollar card than it can on a console.

Even with DX10 activated, maximum quality and an absurd 8 x MSAA(!) @ 1280 x 1024 the 5550 manages to average 25 and 32 frames between the scenes tested. A little sluggish on the first scene perhaps, but then it is running the game with 50 percent more pixels than PS3, 8 x anti aliasing compared to NONE on PS3, and direct X 10 maximum effects which the consoles dont match and cant do. Whats more, the overclocked version breezes both tests at those settings without really sweating. Turn off DX10 or back down on the AA a tad and the framerate will rocket

Building PCs since 286s means absolutely nothing, sorry but just not impressed. If you aren't keeping up with current trends, your past experience will not help you. Personally, I've been building since P3's were around (but have also built a few 486s, outdated at the time), but I also keep up on current hardware, reading reviews and articles pretty much every day or two. The fact that you think a gaming PC will cost a minimum of $1500 to match console gaming just proves you don't know what you're talking about. All the stuff I listed was based on running the game at 1080p (which the consoles do not do), and if you were to run it at 720p like the consoles, you'd have an even higher performance.

"There are no background processes that ever steals CPU cycles, etc., or causes disk reads/writes."

Very wrong. How about XBL? PSN? Any system libraries the game may use (networking, XMB/NXE interaction)? While there aren't as many background processes, they are still there. Not to mention, you can disable many processes in windows if performance is affected (which is rare, considering the processing power).

I'm sorry, but I can't agree to disagree, the fact is you are terribly misinformed, as are many who think PC gaming is so expensive.

60 frames is gorgeous and arcade like buttery smooth for the best control response and eye pleasing. Killzone 2 does chug along sometimes, low twenties and it is noticeable. A lot of console games do. Having the luxury of 60 frames on Pc is wonderful, it can make games feel so much slicker than the console versions. Mass effect 2 for example. Can be a little sluggish on 360 sometimes, but locked out to 60 frames on Pc its as slick as fook

You lot need to get off the Cell's nuts, it isn't all that great anymore.

The way Sony measured compute power on the Cell is in TFLOP performance, which it maxes out at around 2TFLOPs, which is much, much higher than a regular desktop CPU - you are completely correct.

However, that power is made up in for example, my PC. I have two ATI 5850s, both are capable of computing at 2.1TFLOPs each, plus whatever my CPU can do. Obviously, the entire two GPUs are rarely used on a game, since Crossfire and SLI are not that good - but in actual computing power - there are applications that can use both to the maximum.

Besides, games struggling to run at 720p and 30fps proves my point.

I love the PS3, I wouldn't be without it - I love the exclusive games, some of my favourite games this generation all on the PS3. But hardware wise, it was impressive for a while, but it is looking old and a bit dated now.

60fps is NOT overrated. You can play games in 60fps much longer without your eyes getting fatigue.

And KZ2 was unfortunately not only slowing down in it's ridiculous loading points, the framerate was unstable anytime whith several enemies on screen. I'm a PS fan to the bone but the 30 or less fps games are very disappointing.

Kudos to devellopers who try to go 60 fps, in my opinion 60fps is more important than super hi res textures.

look it really isn't that big of deal at all. kz2 only slowed down during check point every other time it ran smoothly even in big action scenes. also just look at uc2 there is no slow down or nothing and it is doing alot more at one time then rage. 60 fps is only being made it to a big thing now because 360 fanboys are desperate to try and find a game to top ps3 exclusives and pc owners are trying to get some attention since they're o irrelevan to gaming now.

lagoonalight  +   2034d ago
At this point no one knows what this game will actually look like on consoles. These 'video' experts know next to nothing about this game. The reason people have doubt about U2 on 360 is because of the massive CPU operations being done on the Cell to get what you see. Every 360 exclusive seems to be either subHD or something lesser if 720p. Gears of War is the closest anybody has come and being honest that is a far couple miles away from anything resembling U2. Even KZ2 has nowhere near the textures that U2 has but it excels in other areas lacking in U2. And you cannot forget these engines for the PS3 are still being worked on. As for RAGE, people need to get those panties out of their ass because everyone is again hyping up a game to compare to the exclusives and while it is going to look absolutely fantastic it is in no way going to put any top tier 30fps game to shame. Crysis 2 will not be running at 60fps on consoles. Wonder why?

Well, thanks for reply and not only disagree (you seem pretty excited, though ¬¬ ).
I'm not saying it's all about framerate, I think UC2 is f**ing great, and I could play something similar. (Honestly, I'm not interested in other PS3 exclusives) Why you get mad about it?

grenade explosions
Watching the interview footage.... and noticed the grenade effects. Don't the grenade ring of smoke remind you of Uncharted big cloud of smoke animation? I think it does lol.

wow, this is news about a good looking game running 60fps, and you people automatically turn it into a fanboysm comparison, if it wasn't cause news come out here 1st in a compressed format I wouldn't be here, but god I love getting worked up by stupid childish comments.

I would love to see a poll here @ N4G about users ages, I bet 95% is 12-15 years.
or at least those that post fanboy comments.

I used to like Sonic more than Mario, and Phantasy-Star over Final-Fantasy in the early 90's but didn't fight with people because of it.

i love my ps3 but....
lets be honest, it's best looking games... Uncharted 1 and 2, god of war 3 and killzone 2 are all very linear...scripted events, 720p and sometimes less, that run at 30 fps or less...they are absolutly beautiful games but how much sweeter would they look at 1080p...1200p....1600p at 60 frames per second. Consoles are great entry points for gamers...but when gaming becomes a true passion, you should treat yourself to the wonder that is PC gaming...

look at it this way;

Most people have a desktop with at least a dual core and 2 to 8 gb ram....all that's missing from making it a beast of a machine is a $100 to $500 dollar investment depending on your budget.

This machine can be hooked up via hdmi right to your entertainment system along side your 360 and ps3 and you'll be amazed the library of games open to you.

Also, you could play free games forever and never spend a cent.

Dungeons and Dragons online
Lotr online
and hunders of other f2p mmo's

For First person shooters you have;

Americas army games
Enemy territory.
TCE (True combat elite)
Combat arms.
OP7 (Operation 7)
Soldier Front.
and many more...

Plus mods, demos, total conversions of games (crysis mech warrior anyone?)

It can save you thousands of dollars to be a PC gamer.

And you will get the best gaming experience bar none!!!

As much as i like the cell etc.

It is a single core pc with 6 usable spu's.

What i like about it is the 6spu's do graphical grunt so the rsx can push more of what it needs to do.

It's a clever system.

And will infact get better over time, so much more can be done with it.

For a console, it's miles above the 360, and will prove it more and more as time goes on.

A PC is not a closed box, and while you can go higher fps/aa/af etc. I stopped caring about that awhile ago.

If you got your pc to sit their running benchmarks,overclocking ram, volt modding etc fair enough, used to be into that myself. Just grown out of it.

It's all the games for me now, yes i still use my pc for certain things, and some games included.

I use the PS3 for streaming movies, or copy them over to ps3, blu-ray, gaming, bbc-i, etc.

They both get their fair share of usage.

Maybe if a game that blows me away on pc comes along and i cannot resist the topend graphics again, maybe i'll upgrade again.

But atm i cannot be bothered and would rather spend the money on the games amongst other things.

IDTech should make a good Wolfenstein game. That, I'd get hyped over.

This tech does seem impressive though, from what I've seen the texture work is quite remarkable. Not much else of the game is though, but they claim to have unique textures absolutely everywhere? with every single object being textured differently. That's impressive in my opinion, we'll see if it's true though.

I'm sure Rage will be a great game, just not sure if the techs good enough for devs to take up this engine over Cry engine, or just opting for the easier, but outdated option of Unreal 3.

Why don't you pc gamers get off pc's nuts since your telling console gamers to get off their nuts you bunch of game platform bashing hypocrites.
yamzilla  +   2034d ago

I'm waiting till it comes out....we've been promised such things before....I hope its true.

Makes me wonder what will be sacrificed in terms of visual fidelity to achive those stipulations....I'm going with the PC version....but I know a lot of people who will be happy if these guys come thru for consoles.
