PlayStation 3 vs. Xbox 360 vs. PC. Some more hd comparison screenshots of Dirt 3.
Not just about the graphics PC version on most dated hardware will be running beyond 60fps, plus for enthsiasts it could even be running on 3 screens. While being cheaper then either of the console versions.
Right, your $2000 PC that needs to be given several hundred dollars worth of upgrades just to run all the newest games each year is much cheaper than my $300 PS3. Oh wait... I think he meant that PC gaming is cheaper because he steals PC games off the internet. lol
lol to run 1080 dirt3 a 500usd pc would be enough and yea the game would be cheaper too. saying 2000usd PC is deluded at best.
1. A good gaming PC doesn't cost anywhere near $2000.
2. Upgrades aren't needed to play new games.
3. PC games are cheaper than consoles games, making it cheaper in the long run.
Got anymore ignorant nonsense you feel the need to spew?
lol@ your pathetic attempt at trying to curse pc gamers. next gen consoles are 5 years old or around that. you buy 1 game a month for say @£40...£40x12x5 =£2,400 for 5 years worth of games..... pc titles 1080p/60fps for £25 a shot. £25x12x5 = 1,500 you wasted £900 on games this gen. i got a gaming rig and all them games for the same price. except i wont be spending £400 on next gen hardware in 2013-2014.....as i already own it..... you will be trading your console in for pennies towards your new "ON BOARD" 1GBgpu,2gig ram,2core cpu console. ROFL.
who the heck pays $2000 for a pc? Mind you that 300 dollar console will still leave you buying a 500-700 pc every few years... so why not spend the extra 100-200 on making that computer gaming capable? Its even got to the point where an extra $300 will get you a laptop that plays games instead of just a decent machine. I prefer pc because I value customization, digital distribution, playing at higher res, deciding when my gen starts and not even worrying about backwards compatibility.
Further proof that when it comes to most multiplatform games, the graphical leap isn't that big. What I'm trying to say is. We still need at least a couple of years before the next generation of consoles are released to actually see a big enough difference the like we've seen from PS1 to PS2 to PS3. It's just not enough yet. ____ Oh and physical software game pricing between PC and consoles: http://i52.tinypic.com/2n67... http://i52.tinypic.com/15ho... http://i55.tinypic.com/2q85...
lol more ignorant ps3 drones claiming gaming PC's cost $2000 minimum. I don't blame them, they're too poor to afford the 11¢/day for XBL> I hardly think they could afford a decent rig.
What really sucks is mommy owns the TV... lol
Sucks for you. If your mommny owns the TV, then more than likely that PC isn't yours either. Get a job, afford your own stuff.
come on dude at least say something true! Don't just make a typical console fanboy statement because u hear other fanboys say it! This is a 2009 low end card that costs $120! - http://www.amazon.com/Sapph... it's called a amd 5770 & if it can run dirt 2 like this it can run dirt3! ok? - http://www.youtube.com/watc... it runs the witcher 2 well! & it looks better than console games! I came out 4 days ago! http://www.youtube.com/watc... If you own a pc i say anyone can upgrage with the console cycle.. For a game Like BF3 it's worth an upgrade after 3 - 5 years! It's next gen!
I have a decent rig that I built in 2007 which still runs most games on high settings all I've done since then is up grade the gfx card from an 8800gt to a gtx460. There are a few areas where console gaming is better, more convenient for most, cheaper to get in to at the beginning, much simpler and consistent. I personally play on my PC and PS3 in equal measure, both have strengths and weaknesses. You really don't have to pay thousands for a gaming pc, you pay thousands for an enthusiast pc, but they are just overkill and totally unnecessary. And the fact is, once you've got over the initial build costs, pc gaming is waay cheaper. I've bought at least 10 games in the last couple of months and thanks to Steam and other online stores with their crazy deals I haven't even spent £80.
They all look great, Very hard to see any differences.
screens are good at hiding all the jaggies, pop-in and screen tear the consoles will have
not to mention the pc's much better framerate and wayyy higher resolutions
Funny you say "wayyy", with three "y"'s, higher resolution. Most PC gamers are still using PC hardware that will probably run this game at 1080p with a few additional features, like low AA or AF. Nvidia pointed out that the majority of PC gamers were still using a 9800GT graphics card. Granted this card is powerful when compared to the consoles, but certainly not "wayyy" better. We all know the PC version will be better, but only enthusiasts will be able to appreciate the true leap from consoles to PC. There's nothing wrong with that, since I want to build an enthusiast system myself.
BrianG, you do realise that 1920 x 1080 is more than twice the resolution the consoles run this game at? That is kinda wayyy for me... Plus i prefer the 60 frames version. The smoothness in racers is important. A lone 9800GT and an old core 2 duo will have no problems running this game in 1080p and with better AA/AF than the consoles. Certainly this represents a 'low end' gaming machine in 2011, as much faster cards like the Radeon 5770 cost as little as $100/£75
it is wayyyyy better when even my system can probably run this on 3 screens easily.
...LOL These screenshots clearly show very little difference between PC and console versions. http://translate.googleuser... http://www.pcgames.de/Dirt-... http://translate.googleuser... http://www.pcgames.de/Dirt-... Yeah HUGE differences. /s
@Vulcan, I agree that it is a higher resolution, seeing as how the console versions of games like this typically hit 720p natively. At least that's what I'd expect from Dirt. But I don't think that is enough of a difference to warrant purchasing a PC. Even with outdated hardware, to run it better than the consoles right now would cost anywhere from 300 and up easily. I reckon more than 300 for a decent GPU, CPU, PSU, and MB. But that is just my opinion. Also I have to admit, the consoles have been holding up quite well. The way PC technology has been evolving I would expect games like Dirt 3 to be miles and miles above console versions. This is why people buy consoles, solid performance for a decent amount of time. @PS360. You would need a decent GPU and CPU combo to run this game smoothly on 3 screens at a resolution higher than consoles NATIVE resolution. But I'm not doubting your system.
My previous links didn't work. So here: http://www.pcgames.de/Dirt-... http://www.pcgames.de/Dirt-... So again. Observe the HUGE difference between PC and consoles. /end sarcasm
Pointless. It's kinda hard to see any differences between console and PC on these tiny screens...
Click on the "Full Size Image" at bottom of photo's, to get bigger pictures.
There isn't much difference at all between all 3 versions. Looks very good on console and PC.
Some people will be playing PC version with even more screens: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
that's absolutely ridiculous lol
Well after viewing the video it's obvious that that person plays Flight simulators. Many PC Gamers who use Flight, Rail, Space, or Boating simulators use that many monitors but for Dirt 3, 3 is good enough for this console port.
Once again Codemasters disappoints.
no difference here except for the super slight blur on ps3 version since it prolly has quincunx AA while 360 is running 4xMSAA which should b expected since the rest of the codemasters stuff is like that. both have their advantages depending on the art style (most critics agree killzone 2 looked better in quincunx than the super sharp MLAA in killzone 3). hopefully the performance will be similar on them as well...but i'm getting the ps3 version anyway
mlaa just blurs everything, thats why.
the game is just blurrier and lower res on console. However I always find the difference greater than what these google translate screen shots show, especially in motion.
German comparison. Hide your wife and kids! Wow, this game is beautiful. But hey, a driving line in DiRT? Turn that thing off!
This is bullshit! I spent US$2,300 on my PC so i can run all the games my PS3 can't handle. Like Crysis 1 now look at this crap i might aswel cancel my GTX580 order. It seems only fuking benchmarks push my system. This is why i primarily game on my PS3 it's much cheaper and alot more satisfying when you factor in the cost. Damn cheap ass Devs.
That's it? Kind of a shame the PC doesn't look even better...
Yeah, except I'll be running it at twice the res and twice the frame rate as the console versions. xD
lol @ pc fannies anger cause no one gives a crap. i'm sure it will be fun no matter what platform you play on.
Any way to make the damn screenshots bigger? Why are they in thumbnail form. I can barely tell the differences these images are so damn small! Edit- Never mind found the enlarge button.
It's funny how they have the top of the line hardware thrown in their PC's yet 7 year old tech can still keep up.
It's not that 7 year old tech can keep up with brand new tech (because thats just a silly thing to say). It's that devs arent really taking full advantage over current pc hardware, but instead are making half ass console ports that look barely better than the console version. Games like BF3, the Witcher 2 and the original Crysis have taken advantage over pc hardware and look AGES better than any console game out there. We just seem to be seeing less and less amazing looking games on the pc because sadly it's just not where the moneys at.
Will get for 360 still saving for my rig its only $950 i7 2600k beefy ati card 6 gig of ramm then ill get it for pc and xfire. Whats up with the tree branches on ps3 first pic far right a bit of flyscreening.
You should save up for a GTX 570. Nvidia is always making their cards more optimized with new drivers.
Nah ive been with ati for all time will never own nvidia ati fanboy lol megadeth>metalica.
You can barely tell a difference between them, I'd play this on a console with an organized community over an uncomfortable 500 pc rig any day.
if you had the time to read closely it specifies under the picture that pc version got tuned to match the consoles and if u have copies on both u will see the difference so next time to all of u that talk before u do the walking please don't..:P ps pc graphics dx11 looks amazing double/trople framerate depending what gpu therefore smoother and full hd so there u have it and one more thing the optimization is awesome on console and pc so either way gr8 game from codemasters
