not too bad,but it doesnt matter to me as i'll be playing it on my ps3

Fowack3740d ago

if i was planning on buying it that is. but this game dosn't interest me so maybe 6 will be better/ more appealing to me.

It sucks, well thats according to me so take it for what it is..

Vista did take a few steps forward in OS technology. Once Aero and UAC is disabled, Vista SP1 runs beautifully.

True, but you have that eye candy and security plus more on Linux and OS X. And they've been doing it for years before Vista came out.

This is the reason why I love console gaming. You put in the disc and it's guaranteed to run at it's optimal settings with no need to worry if it's going to run properly or not.

" You put in the disc and it's guaranteed to run at it's optimal settings"
I' bet future games(multiplat on pc too) wont do that much when it comes to consoles

but yeah, it works and thats good.

Uh, no. Most console games run at medium to high settings compared to their PC counter part. Just look at GeOW. I just downloaded it the other day and it puts the Xbox 360 version to shame. PC gaming will always be better, but it's not for the mainstream customer.

System Requirements: Buy a PS3 :)

I'll say it once more. If you build a computer with parts from you can play anything for just $500. That will play crysis on medium and everything else on high and that figure can easily be slimmed down by recycling parts from your old computer.

Indeed, PC gaming will, for the most part, offer a better visceral experience. The main issue regarding PC gaming is the fact that it's very hard to keep up with the amount of GPU lines that keep getting flown to the shelves by nVidia and ATi.

With a console, you never have to worry about meeting specific hardware requirements, so essentially you can just pop it in and play. That was the AClayPS3's point to begin with.

The problem with that philosophy is that computer will be unable to run games in a year from now, which keeps putting you in this cycle of having to update hardware continuously.

Qbanboi3740d ago

^^^ Then u will love Uncharted, u pop it in, and wont see a loading screen in the would game after the first one.

Can someone please tell me why Vista always needs more RAM? I'm thinking of buying Vista, but do all games need more RAM on vista? Thanks.

Fowack3740d ago

you do, vista is a resource hog to say the least.

kittoo3740d ago

And generally uses much more system resources than XP. Although if you have good system, you would find that its more responsive in general applications (they open faster) but when it comes to gaming, XP is still better

OOG3740d ago

Vista takes more ram in order to run you need more ram to run a game on a vista OS

nieto3740d ago

the comment of kittoo was the only one worth reading...

Vista need more ram because it has more services running at the same time than xp and that's all.

example? the aero. it use a lot of ram and the glass skin too.

if you know what you're doing you could make Vista a lot better then Xp even for gaming with some tweaks. but with Windows 7 around the corner and people constantly hating on Vista because it more open than any MAc OS then you should best wait for that. Vista it's going to die soon.

BTW when i say open i mean that you can customize parts do some tweaks with registry, etc.

People hate on Windows because they are the giants on OS and on Sony because they are the giants of the video games industry. it's like people always like the underdogs.

Bazookajoe_833740d ago

Vista always need 512mb more in ram than xp to run games, but you get nicer icons if you have vista instead of xp ;-) But for gaming xp is better..

Microsoft_Spokesman3740d ago

So, it's like that because there are more things running in the background?

sak5003740d ago (Edited 3740d ago )

double post

sak5003740d ago

On my 2gb system:

Clean boot XP SP3 = 750+mb utilizied
Clean boot Vista ULtimate = 1.4+GB utilized

qwertyuiopasdfghjkl3740d ago

Your Vista is dirty then... I got 800mb utilized for 64bit Vista Premium...

-SIXAXIS-3739d ago

800 MB? That's horrible! My 3-year-old laptop has 1.125 GB of RAM and Vista uses about 600 MB on average (unless it is updating or I am running a VM or gaming).

EDIT: I'm also running 64-bit Home Premium.
