That's why you get these games for PC. Der.

That's why you speak for yourself, der.

It's more worth it to install it on a PC!

Mista T2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

yep, just get it on PC. or any game you want thats availalble on pc. why buy a game on console with low res and no mods when you can play the game on pc with 1920x1080 res maxed out with mod support? not to mention it costs 10 bucks less brand new at launch

Solidus187-SCMilk2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

but there are alot of people who buy a console for the exclusives. There are even games on PS3/360 that are not on PC.

Mista T2831d ago

I agree with that, consoles are great if you want to access a whole library right away without worrying about system specs and what not. and yes, there are games that aren't on pc.

but in my opinion, if you've got a capable one, why buy on console?

It costs 10 less bucks for the game, but 1000 more dollars for the appropriate hardware to play it at the same level of performance as the 360/PS3.

No one says you can't have a console. But many games, especially Bethesda's style open-worlders, are an entirely different experience on PC. I still play Oblivion because the generation of content simply has kept going strong. It looks better, it plays better, and it has far more support than any console game will ever get. 100% free.

Ok well... you still have to buy the game but it's ten bucks cheaper.

"It costs 10 less bucks for the game, but 1000 more dollars for the appropriate hardware to play it at the same level of performance as the 360/PS3."

Stubborn console gamers, keep telling yourself that lie. Ignorance is bliss, I guess.

"1 word

I have no idea if NV on PC will have any of those. But tbh, if that somehow trumps extending your gameplay by 100+ hours with new content pretty much *guaranteed*, then I don't know what to tell you. Have fun with your achievements, dude.

OMG for fuck sake; not everyone can afford a gaming PC and has the money to constantly upgrade it. I hate it when fucking PC users stroll in and then take a shit on people who use consoles, maybe people who have consoles don't give a shit about how superior PC's are and just want to play the game; even if it's not at maxed out graphics. Some people would rather buy a £200 console and play a good looking game than pay £1,000 for a PC and upgrade it every month to make the game look slightly better. RAWR.

Mista T2831d ago

your loss, I have nothing to say to the blind and or ignorant

ElementX2831d ago

I didn't think people still said "2" and "4". LOL lame

BeOneWithTheGun2831d ago

I also like sitting in my recliner and holding just a controller. I am a trophy/achievement whore, too so that is why I get the console version. Don't know why the two above posters have to do a personal attack. We all have our reasons for preferences.

No Way2831d ago

Well.. he did clearly say he was a boy.

"whats a boy 2-do" See? :P

As much as I love gaming on PC telling people to get it on PC is arrogant. Some people dont know how to upgrade or not willing to spend the money on a new system or a new component. Yes overall the PC version will be better if your using the right hardware. If people only have an Xbox or a PS3 to play games maybe its because they either dont have the money for an Xbox or a new PC or they are just happy with what they have.

Not at all. Installing every game you're gonna play to the 360 harddrive decreases the chance of getting RROD since DVD drive will not be able to create too much heat. I played lots of games, from GTA IV to Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 2 on my 360 and whenever I checked the exhaust fans, the air was warm just like the PS3.

Active Reload2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

Funny you should say that, in which I have to wonder if you were referring to the increase amount of time it takes to load from the disc. Or were you referring to the install? Because if its the latter then I think your comment qualifies for the label of being called an...oxymoron.

NYC_Gamer2831d ago (Edited 2831d ago )

based on the article the whole vegas install is one big waste of real huge differences

Microsoft_Spokesman2831d ago

Well if have the hard dive space why not? Sure you only save 5 seconds, but for a game as big and as long (that's what she said) as Fallout this adds up and saves a lot of time.

No Way2831d ago

Sorry, sir.. that is not what she said! ^_^

wsoutlaw872831d ago

i would rather put it in and walk a way for 6 min once then have to wait like 5 extra seconds every time it loads. Install when I dont want to play and get faster times when i do.

ceedubya92831d ago

Installing to the hdd helps keep the console quieter, puts less focus on the disc drive, and overall should allow the console to last longer. In those cases, the install is more than worth it in my opinion. Plus, saving a few seconds on load times can't hurt either.

jack who2831d ago

not worth it. only reason i install any game too my HDD is so i dont hear the disk spinning and if i play it ALOT

Microsoft_Spokesman2831d ago

The time you save for each loading screen will add up in a gigantic game like Fallout.

Raoh2831d ago

huh? when i had my 360 I installed every game that i planned to play for long periods of time.

i no longer have a 360 and cant play games like fallout on consoles anymore.. i can only play it on pc's.. i'm going to wait for a while before i play new vegas.. with all the pc mods for fallout i'm really not done with it..

unless my ps3 version of games allows pc mods like unreal tournament did.. its pc all the way..
