Either way the waters pretty, but is the DX10 machine worth it? You be the judge.
Well, its really not DX10 worthy but the game still looks stunning and if you have a PC that can run the game, you'd be mad if you don't buy this game. I chose the 360 version because my computer is rather pre-historic.
I have the demo on my 360 as well as on my PC. I CAN run this game at 1680*1050 on my PC. I turn both games on, and hit a button on my monitor to switch instantly between the two systems and the PC version looks stunningly better at that resolution.
Now, when I set the monitor to run close to the same resolution as the 360 (1024*768) and switch between the two? The PC version BARELY looks better. The only reason it seems to look better is added AA and seems like the textures are still running at a higher resolution.
But in the end the 360 version is pretty darn impressive compared the the PC version running close to the same resolution.
I run my 360 to my 61" 1080p HDTV's VGA port set at 1920x1080 and it runs smooth as silk and looks fan-fn-tastic.
Will have to look on the back of the box to see if 1080p is listed for HDMI Elite folks, but I know my VGA output is set to 1920x1080
Wow I'm pretty impressed that the 360 is exactly like the high end pc version. Most PC users still have the p4 processor so they won't be able to play at the same level as the 360.
It's not all about the Processor, there are other factors. A person with the right harddrives, memory and video card will be able to play this if they own a P4. Not to say depending on the setup a person running a P4 my run the game better than a person with core 2 duo.
/Hugs my console.
I kissed mine.
Get a room
i stamped on mine
but whatever. some people.....
it still causes my jaw to drop when i play this, i like it more than gears in terms of graphics/art direction. much better. best game yet for my 360... till mass effect that is...
The biggest difference I could spot was that they did'nt have the same brightness level on the 360, which is adjustable.
The PC version is adjustable too.
As well as options like 8x AA and higher NATIVE resolutions.
the 360 version looks slightly better, add least when u look at the water effects.. I liked this game until i found out about the gameplay, i hate games that plays like that.. graphics are nice thought..
Holy sh!t. You made a productive, non PS3 biased comment. Good job and I agree with you, except for I like the gameplay.
the 360 version is better. But if you have a high end PC obviously that is the way to go.
It does impress me though that the 2 year old GPU on the 360 can still keep up with a high end PC. Usually at this time in a consoles lifecycle PC games will start to move way ahead.
theres no way im playing a game using a keyboard..
not to mention the crazy price?
the luxury will get the 360 version. ether way you can hooke up a pc monitor to a PC or 360 get 1080P on both and get crystal clear image. and for the frame rate( it will depend on your system).
um i dont see any difference. They should do a DX9 - DX10 video becasue if I get it for PC i wont have DX 10
360 looks better but i'm still getting it for my PC to get the extra user made stuff.
no dx10 cards are worth the money (trust me i got one), but in all honesty i played this on a friends xbox and enjoyed it alot so i went home and downloaded the pc version which looks much nicer than the xbox version, mainly due to res, the xbox can only output in 720p (1388x780 i think) which gets up scaled to 1080p!
luckly tho i have a very high end pc, i doubt you could build a computer for less than a grand that would compete with the xbox version!!
It's quite obvious from this video that 360 is still > PC.
And needless to say, PC > other consoles.
x360 is the weakest of the 3.
The processor XENON is around 1/10 as powerful as the CELL
XENOS and RSX are 1/2 of 8800GTX
You're the biggst droid on here. Shut up. Stop being a dipshit.
You want the 360s games, you can't have them. Buy a 360 and man up dikwad.
won't be noticed when you're wrapped up in the game...I'm with the crowd that would get this for 360 though...I'm in no hurry to buy a $2,000+ rig. Maybe next Christmas, but certainly not now.
What is up all these crap comparisons being published by the big websites?
If you're gonna compare something side by side do it properly and not so that the position of the camera differs in the 2 shots.
And for a game like this the comparisons should really be done in HD and not something as low rez as the video above.
It was actually 1yr AHEAD of its time when released since it was built on a custom API of DX9 and DX10 features.
Its only around a year behind an 8800 since that is full DX10.
But yeah looking at the visuals the only time I could see a difference was the second water scene where it was gushing down the PC version was better then.
But overall the 360 version is pretty tied with the PC version.
Only a game like Crysis can show you the true difference but then you need a super PC to run it on the highest settings.
The 360 once again proves it has the power and ability to deliver. I thought they were virtually identical. Biut the pc version was a little brighter. You can adjust the brightness on the 360 version in game. So this is the only comparision I have ever called a tie.
Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 version actually looks better.
but when you pause at where he uses the wrench, you see the xbox 360 has better texture and lightning.
Xbots are simply insane if they think the 360 version is better...but well, it's not news they are insane, I mean which normal person buys a product with a 33% failure rate?
Duh duh duh duh, have no fear, FANBOY IS HERE!
anyone concerned it could kill your 360
the pc version running at the games seemingly native 720p resolution seemed to sport a slightly less aliased image. also running the same brightness settings in game and on my HDtv, the pc also sported a slightly brighter image. it was easier to see more subtle details on the pc. but both are great to me and i ultimately decided on the 360 version. my [email protected]
That for PC games, devs have to fine tune them for hi-res monitors...while the 360 has to look good on a standard TV as well as monitors and HDTVs.
Im playing it on my PC without DX10, and it looks great. The only thing I have to complain about is the enemy death animations, they seem choppy.
Wow those are so close. I couldn't really see a difference. Impressive indeed. I wonder what the DX10 computer was sporting though? GPU wise?
360 on a nice HD tv looks just as good if not better (def. smother) than a couple grand pc
Console > PC
I tell you one thing FOR SURE ... especially in the water tunnel when the plane hits it ... the PC is choppy as hell while the 360 looks to run much smoother.
