Skyrim developer Todd Howard discusses in a recent interview the PC graphics of Skyrim, why the 360 takes second place to the PC and why the 360 is used for demos.
The PC thing isn't a surprise.. Most people seem to expect that with games now. As for the demo preference, I see a lot of devs saying that, but at the same time I've seen a fair few PS3 demos available at recent game shows. It's a tough call and I think ultimately comes down to the developers preference / what they've developed more of the game on at the time.
Doesn't matter how awesome the PC version if the vendors cock up their drivers. Not sure who we should be raging at.
Ya we're doomed If they keep screwin up like this
i always expect pc and 360 versions of multiplats to look better than the ps3 version anyway so who cares
Wow. What a nob. Can't wait to rock this on my PC.
Though I want to see the footage of the other two platforms, I'm kind of glad they decided that showing the game on the console was all they wanted to show. They've done the opposite of Dice and shown the weakest link so that gamers get to be impressed instead of going "why doesn't it look like what we've seen in trailers." That's not to say the 360 is the weakest link as I think both consoles will pretty much be the same as always graphically. The only difference I worry about is that the PS3 will get more bugs than the 360 ala Fallout 3 GOTY Edition. That game was barely playable on the PS3.
Thinking about getting a new laptop to get the pc version of the game. I highly doubt I will be able to get mods on my 360. M$ have yet mention/decided skyrim mods on the 360 ,better safe than sorry in my case.
If you're going to get a laptop to play it on you might as well just play it on 360. Unless you're going to spend $2000 on a laptop...
Honestly I dont think that microsoft will ever allow modding on their xbox. If they ever do, then they will probably charge it.
so many titles fight for my disctray, but once 11.11.11 rolls around, nothing stands a chance!
one month, 5 days and counting
Honestly if this game was a ps2 only game I would pay $60 for it! It will be epic no matter which platform you play it on! That said, the pc version will by far be the coolest because of the MODS! The better graphics, higher res textures, better framerate, yada, yada, yada, are all sweet but the mods will add YEARS onto this game. You guys that are on the fence of jumping into pc, build a mid-spec pc and enjoy some of the craziness of the mods!
