Gaming Irresponsibly's Frank Moricz has always been a PC gamer. inFamous 2 may change that fact.
Battlefield 3, The Witcher 2 and Metro 2034 on pc will change your mind.
All those games will be also be going to console. But yeah I know what you are getting at.
"In the end, it doesn’t matter what type of system you are having fun on, as long as you are entertained." Very true. And I give the author his props for saying that he'll judge the game without bias.
Warprincess, Things would go a lot better here if a self proclaimed PS3 "Fangirl" didn't comment on other platforms.
@Warprincess- People still play PC games because it has its hardware is CONSTANTLY GETTING BETTER as opposed to consoles that aren't upgradable. The PC has the ability to play most if not all games in 1080p AND the ability to produce up to 8x the anti-aliasing as any console game.
Not gonna spend $600+ just to play games at a higher frame rate. No thanks.
not taking anything away from i2( im freaking getting it day 1!) but multiple ps3 games shouldve did this: uncharted 2, god of war 3, mgs4
stop feeding the trolls people.
ok, then spend 600 bucks to get cheaper games, higher framerate, better graphics, mods(i dont even f*ckz wit xbawks l4d), better community (no prepubescent children screaming in your ear), and alot more games that are only available on pc.
What!? The witcher 2 Is coming to consoles?!
Seriously though, whats wrong with playing on PC and consoles? I know I do, PC for multiplats and PC exclusives. PS3 for PS3 and console exclusives. Simples.
@stevenhiggster, stop, you're making too much sense. Sarcasm aside, you're right on and I have been a combo PC/PS3 gamer for almost 2 years now. I do my FPS/RTS games plus most multiplats on PC because I prefer PC controls and the higher resolution/graphic settings that the PC offers. The PS3 covers the console only games like Red Dead Redemption and the fine lineup of Sony exclusives. This year, for example, I'm looking forward to inFamous 2, Uncharted 3 and Twisted Metal for the PS3 while also spending a lot of time playing BF3 and Shogun 2 on PC. Yep, PC plus a PS3 equals a great gaming combo.
Agent-86 Why do you think every gamer have so much money, i prefer playing games, than buying expensive equipment.
@Agent 86 I am a PC PS3 combo guy too and to be honest I would like to play more PC games but I am just so addicted to my trophies, hell I just got 5 platinums in the past 3 weeks. otherwise yea there is a lot of games I have bought twice so I can play PC and get the trophies too!
Actually have the Witcher 2 pre-ordered on steam already. :)
mine has been pre-ordered since it was available... I cry at bed every night because it's not may yet
FYI, Witcher 2 on GoG.com, a site run by the people who develop the game, is a better deal. It's also completely DRM free there. Though, completely understand if you do Steam for any possible achievements it may have.
you obviously didn't read the article......hint its not about abandoning pc gaming
No it won't because at least 2 of those games will be coming to consoles.
Are you one of those still holding your breath for that inevitable PC port of Red Dead Redemption?
If one good game could cut your PC roots, that's just sad. There are occasional great exclusives on the consoles, but the PC has its own great exclusives as well as the best versions of multi-platform games. I will always play some console games, but nothing will ever take me away from PC gaming.
PC roots, your must be joking, people can play on what they like.
Equinoxe_7, pc games are cheaper and you actually end up paying more with console in the long run. Download steam so you can see what I mean.
You can game on both PC and PS3 FYI. I do it. The universe won't implode or anything...
Ya, I really don't understand the point of the article. I'm also a PC gamer, but I bought a PS3 when the Slim came out with the price reduction. I got it so I wouldn't miss out on console only games like RDR plus Sony's fine lineup of exclusives. The PS3 and a gaming PC make a great gaming combo.
Yup that's what I do. Despite having a good PC, I don't see why a person couldn't just enjoy both??? Infamous 2 looks amazing and that's on 4 year old hardware. Gameplay gameplay gameplay.
4 Year old Hardware? What console launched 2 years ago dude? Oh you are one of those that actually thinks PS3/360 hardware was made just weeks before they launched? LOL try more like 7 year old hardware.
you really don't know the ps3 specs huh, vram and cell architecture where not available 7 years ago.
@Valk: All hardware is dated the day it's first released. A new GPU is as old as the first day it goes on sale, the same with consoles, smart phones, TVs, etc.
If you say 7 years old, then it's even more impressive. What are you getting at? My point is that they're doing amazing things despite aging hardware. And what's amazing is the gameplay, not just graphics.
All systems have their good features
Why would I leave BF3 PC for inFamous 2? console gamers wouldn't even do that! At least say uncharted 3 or something!! Plus I have to play RO2!! 64 players & innovation for the win!! - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... plus the best looking rpg ever!! - http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... plus creation mod tools for skyrim confirmed! - http://www.joystiq.com/2011... Star Wars the old republic & guild wars 2! http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... plus Dota 2 - Valve! plys Shogun 2, TrackMiania 2 - http://www.youtube.com/watc... Black Prophecy http://www.youtube.com/watc... for infamous? plus cheaper games! For infamous? *** ok Im fine with that have a ball then!
and some people play shooters, maybe he wants to game.
At it's heart inFamous is a 3rd person shooter. It's different than say gear of War 3, and obviously the climbing is interesting but about 85% of what you do in that game is shoot little bolts at little dudes. That's not ALL you d, but it's about 85% of what you do. The other 15% is climbing, platforming, skating on power lines or train riding, hitting switches, pulling power out of stuff like air conditioners,deflecting incoming projectiles, boss battles, shard hunting, melee, area effects, draining life or healing wounded, and boss battles.
Omg shut up with your constant PC trolling, i thought you PC guys were mature, hes saying its a great game which it is
all pc gamers talk about are wrpgs and shooters.
I would say mostly MMO's and RTS games nowadays. Not even shooters anymore because the consoles have proven that they have just as many quality shooters (if not more) than pc.
"all pc gamers talk about are wrpgs and shooters" lol Hypocrite. funny thing,Most Popular and played game online Playstation 3 Game are Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
almost evry game this gen has been a multiplat wrpg or shooter, which is why I havent spent that much time on console.
A great game is a great game. Why does it matter what platform it's on? Some fanboys just really amuse me.
Tough to ignore Sony`s exclusives no matter what platform you prefer.
another no named site claiming an outrageous pro ps3 stance.
There are some smart cookies in here. Finally instead of going on about how this and that is better, you guys are finally realising that if you have both... YOU'RE THE FARKING MANTIS! But yeah it's good to have both hooked up to the same TV ya dig.
consoles can have fantastic games too, heck many 360 users would love this game as well.
What a stupid article. What the hell is wrong with having a PC, PS3, and 360? Anyone who doesn't have that set up is seriously missing out. I understand that not everyone can afford it right now, but that's still no reason to act like anything that you don't own isn't worth the light of day.
I got a PC and Wii. Sure I miss out on a few exclusives on PS3 but I'm not missing out on anything not having a 360 except 50 a year for what should be free.
i got a ps3 and pc. if i had more time to game i would def get a 360 i play one at a few friends houses and i enjoy it. but i dont even have enough time to play all the games i want to on ps3 and pc so why would i try and put a 3rd system in the equation. i gues if i was young and i could play games everyday for hour after hour i would have every system out.
Buy all 3 consoles and a pc, if u can't afford it do a little thing called saving, honestly it works. I have 3 kids, I own a pc, ps3, 360. Son owns ps3 and 360, daughter owns Wii and 360, if I can afford those anyone can, it takes a while but it obviously works, I don't make stacks of cash at work either. The only reason I say buy all is because as a gamer I like to experiance alot of different games, and because each platform offers something different I think its important to own as many of the platforms as possible
I am primarily a PC gamer but I completed Infamous 1 many times, it was a great game. No way I will be missing out on Infamous 2. If you can already afford a half decent gaming PC then there is no real reason you can't afford a PS3 too.
I disagree! every time i have $300 for a ps3 i end up buying PC parts. there are many levels of PC gaming and PC Gaming is my extreme hobby. So instead of buying a PS3 i end up taking my hobby to another level and it has paid off wonderfully. Gaming isn't Gaming until it's on 3 screens and in 3D.
lol wow. cant say i ever tried gaming on more theen one screen or tv at once. i would imagine that would take some serious time to get used to. im just a casual pc gamer though. i norm try to make my rig last as long as it can. 2 years ago i could play most games on high seting but now its just chuggin along i can still play pretty much everygame though. i will prob throw some money into it around xmas to get it running stuff better. its just to expensive to try and keep your rig at its highest level all the time. i go in a 3 year cycle upgrading my pc.
Gaming isnt Gaming until its a video game and your having fun. I would HATE playing a game that sucked on 3 screens and in 3D.
inFamous 2 looks really good and when it comes out I'm gonna go next door and play it on my neighbors PS3 like i do all PS3 exclusives. 8 hours later i beat the game then i go back home and enjoy my PC games. these console vs. PC articles are really stupid. people choose the platform they have for a reason, you like the games it has, you like the company, or what ever. either way you have fun. and as far as that old stupid saying "Most PC games are on console". I say that is just silly talk because sure BF3 is on the PC Ps3 360 but which one looks like this with 64 players? also most PC Gamers play MMO's which the consoles lack but Gears and Gow are still fun games.
Until consoles get native K&M support and have mods, then I think I'll be sticking to my reliable PC.
consoles top pc gaming in everything but graphics, give me God of War or Mass Effect over RTS's any day.
Hmmm, Battlefield 3 with have 64 players while consoles will only have 24. So it's not just graphics.
i could careless about shooters and/or online gaming really.
PC fanboys have really started to irritate me.They were never this vocal years ago,maybe the lack of good games have actually hurt them mentally.
