Some gamers are already playing Rise of the Tomb Raider PC on Steam and obviously they've shared some amazing screenshots.
Wow, I'm thankful I waited now. Looks like it will be worth it on PC
When it was announced as Xbox exclusive I was sad, thinking I'd have to wait a lot. It went better than I thought in the end
Except both MS and Crystal Dynamics said it wouldn't be exclusive to XB1 days after they made the deal and that it would release on PC early 2016. Then all the Sony fans reminded us constantly that it wasn't exclusive. You guys have been sad all this time? Maybe we can start a group therapy session for gamers who are being traumatized by the console war and now have PSTD. -"Johnny, can you please stand and tell us your story?" -"Well... I ...I own a PS4 ...and my friend Timmy said some hurtful things to me the other day..." -"It's OK Johnny, we're all here to help. You're safe here." -"Well... he said Rise of the Tomb Raider was going to be an Xbox exclusive and I got really mad and told him it's not and that he is lying because I really want to play it." -"It's OK Johnny, what Timmy really meant to say was that it was going to be on Xbox only for a short while, then come over to other gaming platforms." -"But when will I get to play it on PS4?!" -"Don't worry Johnny, here at Gamers Anonymous we share all gaming platforms together so you'll never have to wait to play an exclusive ever again." Awww, happy ending! https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@Unspoken Maybe you should do what your name is from time to time. Normally i like a good laugh, but that was just stupid really.
@Unspoken This is simply not true. There were no hints at at that the PC release would be that early - most people expected it to come in April -, except for Spencer's suspicious formulation calling the game a "holiday exclusive" on XBox. Let's not talk about the sad rest of your comment.
@Kreank12 They said within days of the announcements that it would come to PC in early 2016.
Looks the same as the X1 version, which looks great!
ummmmmm, fanboy in denial spotted? I have this on my xbox one, i had to stop playing it because the visuals were lacking, and AA on the console version was just terrible.
@suli5595 and @jcc737 Sounds like you're both being fanboys. Jcc737...Yes, the PC version looks better than the xbox one version so saying they both look the "same" is absurd. Alternatively, if you (suli5595) want us to believe that you quit playing because the "visuals were lacking" you need to try harder. All things considered the Xone version is a beautiful game in its own right.
lolol, yeah same as the xb1 version for sure! fanboy at it's finest!
@suli955 'had to stop playing because the visuals were lacking'. lol funniest comment ive read in a while. I'm guessing you don't own an xbox one
Watch out jcc737...Even though you are 100% correct the 14 year old PS4 fanboys and the 30 year old PC master wasters living in their mom's house will vilify you for stating facts!
Lol, o-k guys...dumbest argument ever. The X1 looks great, the PC version looks good, they both look good to me, I don't see any real differences. Sorry if thats offensive to people that don't own an X1? Lol. Carry on.
Almost bought it on Xbox One. I'm so glad I got Halo 5 instead. Now I can enjoy this at 60fps. Yum.
PLEB... 100 FPS, 1440P FTW.
@neckbeard You sir know your history. Good use of the world Pled, though most may not know what that means.
4K 60fps ftw
There really isn't much difference. I am surprised you waited for the PC one. I couldn't wait, loved the Reboot on PC but this one had to be a day one. Great game.
There really wasn't any reason to wait, unless you didn't own an XB1. Then you didn't have a choice. Critics loved the game on XB1. If you have an uber rig and can play this at 1440 60fps, then go for it. Hopefully the sales will be good as Crystal Dynamics/SE deserves some profits for this game.
the game looks very same as xb1 .. i swear I can't tell much refinement from these pics to the xb1 i have .and I'm picky abut it.. 60fps is a super-add though
youtube does no game justice imo. the compression is terrible. but it looks awesome on pc and those cut scenes OMG. i need a new card to play it though so might have to invest because its gonan be a while till i can play it on my ps4.
Looks great on the PC. Looked great on the XB1 as well and I didn't have to wait. More gamers get to play this great game.
"It appears like there is a Very High preset. NVIDIA recommended a GTX 970 for gameplay at [email protected] and a GTX 980Ti for gameplay at [email protected], but that was for High settings." Didn't they Recommend a 980ti for 2k/60fps? On topic: The game looks stunning.
Sorry, that was a little typo. NVIDIA recommended 980Ti for [email protected] at High settings. I'm curious at how taxing are these Very High settings, now.
It will most likely need a GTX 980 for Ultra High at 1080p/60fps. But i highly doubt we will need more than a 980TI for 1440p. Witcher 3 most of the times at 1440p/60fps at Ultra high with Nvidia Hairworks On. I highly doubt this game will be as more demanding than Witcher 3.
@Dark: Yes, 980Ti should be fine for 1440P, unless they want us to get a SLI for slightly more than 1080P
Damn, hopefully I can play it at Ultra 1440/60 with two MSI 980s. I know the last Tomb Raider had great SLI support @DarkOcelet Now that you mention that I don't think this game will be as demanding as The Witcher 3 at 1440/60 Ultra w/ hairworks on and I was able to play it that way with my current system. I guess I should be fine as long as this game is optimizated well, and given that the last one was I have confidence that this one will be as well :)
@audiocafe 2 MSI 980's are slightly better than one 980Ti so you will be fine :) Check out this Benchmark... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Any of you guys know if this will have SLI out of the gate? I have two GTX970's in waiting.
@SniperControl Sli support has been confirmed :) http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
So glad I sold my SLI 970's for a 980 TI. Love this card, it doesnt even break a sweat at 100 FPS 1440p. I highly recommend it.
I'm a pc gamer myself. So I hope people do realise that it does not look much better then the Xbox version. Having played the Xbox version recently I can already tell the only major difference will be the 60fps or resolution if you can have it higher then 1080p
There's already comparison screens and the difference is big. Stop lying.
Where are the comparisons? You mean the one where they use the Xbox 360 and claim it's the X1? I can take a screen capture right now and attach, everytime I try to attach it just goes to the top of the page. The lies about X1 are just b.s. the hate is ridiculous. Sorry, if you are expecting leaps and bounds, it's not gonna happen. The X1 version looks great, that is unless you think the Xbox360 version is the X1, which, only someone who hasn't played an X1 would believe.
Please direct me to the lie. Take your time. Since I only stated major differences which I don't believe are a lie. And no screen comparisons cannot be up as the game has not yet been released. Unless Ofcourse you agree to be one of those people who trusts screen comparisons from anyone. Even a 12 year old.
The difference honestly isn't big what so ever. The biggest difference I noticed was more defined foliage, everything else was hard to see a difference or had none at all. Imo top 5 best looking game this gen.
He's probably referring to this article that is already proven as fake http://m.neogaf.com/showpos... Here's a screen shot I took when I went back to the same area in my game http://s21.postimg.org/hvt9... Too many people eating too much crap up
Have you played the PC version on Ultra yet? Otherwise you can't really pass judgment. The difference in the two versions is down to the work the devs put in, but if you are a PC gamer then you already know that the difference is capable of being tremendous if you have the right hardware & the effort was put in. The XBO versions seems to look amazing from what I've seen, but to deny the potential gains in a PC version is crazy coming from someone who considers himself a PC gamer...from what I understand CD & Nixxes do great work when it comes to PC versions of their titles & I don't even game on PC.
You seem sensible. Now I'm trying to understand where I denied that the pc is more capable or will look better. The game already looked good on the Xbox. Just find it weird how pc gamers who shouldn't care about console graphics are all over Shit like this. It really makes us look bad. No Shit it'll look better it's pc. That doesn't mean the Xbox version looks bad and my comments was in reaction to that.
@dark crow Oh well that's definitely understandable. The game obviously looks phenomenal on the XB1 & no one can deny that. Ultimately the PS4 & XB1 are nearly identical in hardware, doubly so when you are comparing to something as vastly upgradeable as PC. The PC will most likely look better, but even that is assuming that the devs in question have an inclination to do so. One only has to look at Arkham Knight to see that PC versions aren't always automatically superior in every aspect, it is all down to the devs really. I've just heard that CD & Nixxes really have a knack w/ the PC so I expect some great things. Either way it's still going to be the same great game regardless of what platform you play it on. If I had an XB1 I'd have been all over this game & Id have had a 100% completion a week after release....these games are my absolute favorite and I'm really itching to get at this one...if I wasn't so broke I'd have went ahead and found a way to pick one up, but as it stands I'm glad that I'll have Uc4 in the spring (hopefully?) and this game to look forward to for the holidays. I guess it all works out & Ive managed to stay away from spoilers so I should be good.
Yeah, it's going to be insane at Very High and 4K resolution.
@Dark_Crow I'm sorry to say it, but if you are one of those people who cannot see the huge difference between high end pc and console gaming visually, than you should just stick to consoles. On the plus side you'll save tonnes of cash.. I unfortunately do not have the luxury of ignorance.. 😕
So you guys think this is a good build? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/q...
well yes... max setting everything for 2k 60+ fps for a couple years
There's certainly nothing wrong with your build and not knowing exactly what you are going for in your build, I would recommend this as an alternative: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/T... I would go with the 1151 socket (skylake) instead of the 1150 socket. The 1150 socket is at the end of it's life and the 1151 socket just launched so this will give you a lot of upgrade options down the road that won't be possible on the 1150 socket. Cpu: Really, the GPU is almost always the bottleneck. Unless you have a specific need for hyperthreading, then I think that an i5 is a far better value. Take the 6600k and combine it with one of the best air coolers on the market and the extra MHz you get on overclocking will make up for the loss of hyperthreading. I'd expect a 4.5-4.6Ghz overclock if not better (I've had my 6600k clocked at 4.7Ghz for months now with the same cooler) Cooler: What you saved on the CPU lets you get one of the best coolers money can buy and Noctua is known to distribute mounting plates for future sockets for free so a lot of future proofing here and the cooler is super quiet too. Motherboard: Kind of a personal decision on the specific model since you may have some specific features you want out of a motherboard but gigabyte makes good boards. I have an Asus board but that had more to do with the sale pricing at the time than a particular advantage. Choosing the 1151 socket will let you upgrade the CPU for years to come without having to chuck your motherboard and ram in the process (aka 1150 socket). The fact that the skylake processors are built on 14nm process means they will run at a lower voltage, consume less power and run cooler. Memory: DDR4 3000 CAS 15 ram is roughly the same latency as DDR4 1866 CAS 9 ram but has about twice the bandwidth which will help again with future proofing. Also runs cooler at a lower voltage. Running 4 sticks of 4GB vs 2 sticks of 8GB can help with latency in some scenarios, 16Gb is overkill today so plenty of future proofing there. Storage: Shoot a few bucks saved on the CPU and PS to a 2TB hard drive upgrade. GPU: The Zotac board is the same price but runs at a slightly higher clock. there's nothing wrong with the one you chose though, just thought I'd throw in an alternative for interest's sake. Case: I am a big fan of Fractal Designs, I haven't researched the specific model of case you chose but I know that this case is deep enough to hold the Noctua cooler plus it is an exceptionally well designed case with sound deadening built in and LOTS of options. Highly, highly recommended. Power Supply: The 850W power supply was already more than you really needed and combine the savings in power usage from the more power efficient CPU and RAM and you can easily save some bucks here and drop to a 750W PS. I like Corsair's RM series because they have a 7 year warranty, feature 80+ gold efficiency and run in a fanless mode at low power, silence is golden.
MAn, nice piece of info, very helpful.
Thanks super_bruno Couple of errors I made 1. Memory: should have been 'DDR3 1866' not 'DDR4 1866' 2. After re-examining the power supplies, I realized that the Corsair RMi and RMx series are 7 year warranties but the RM series is only 5 years warranty. The EVGA SuperNOVA 750W G2 has a 10 year warranty and is also 80+ gold and features a fanless mode aswell... In retrospect, the cost/benefit may be worth an extra $20 considering we are talking about a $1500 build here... I wouldn't give up the hard drive upgrade though!
@Livin Just for fun: I checked the prices on all parts you listed where I live and (some will have to be shipped from another EU country because they are not available here) and the price came to 3856.90 euros (taxes and shipping included). Dear lord you guys are lucky... PS: great advice!
I hear you Ultra Nova, I live in Canada and, while not nearly as bad as you, it is about an extra 750 dollars more than in the US. I guess that's why I have a 970 in my build instead of a 980ti lol I do plan to add a second 970 later this year which should bring it up to 980ti standards...
Absolutely, it's a great PC.
Looks pretty impressive on Xbox. The PC version is going to take it to another level. I'll be waiting for the PS4 release, probably in the fall /
really? It doesn't look any better than the xbox one version? really? that's what we are going with? its a pc. the whole point of it is to look better than any console version. Guys go play this game. ITs really good and try to support the developers. SE and MS business deals hopefully don't lead to crystal dynamics people losing jobs. Cd has really got something special here and i truly believe rotr has surpassed the uncharted series. The gameplay loop in this game is fantastic. gamebreaking perks with every tomb you raid and skills that make you feel bad ass. This rpg element and exploration part is what makes it outstanding and frankly i'm hoping naughty dog stray away from their linear gameplay design from uncharted series and implement the rpg elements of last of us into uncharted 4. Coz something needs to change in UC4. and dialogue options aren't the key.
I can't witness Lara at 4K. I'm sad :(
The real thing to say is: At least they're finally releasing it on the PC. Stupid selling-out to MS for that timed exclusivity. I can't blame them in a business sense (maybe, depends how much they got) but it's just so anti-consumer :(
Realy !! Pc version looks better than xbox one i add my x1 picture of this game
Well, it's going to look a bit better on the PC, especially if you have a better GPU card and more memory. It's a given. That doesn't mean the game didn't look great on the XB1 as well.
My pictures version x1 : http://pl.tinypic.com/r/10y... http://pl.tinypic.com/r/s0v... http://pl.tinypic.com/r/2zt...
I picked up the Xbone version on eBay for £20. I'll finish it in a few days and resell it. If it's good, it's good, the graphics won't determine that for me. If it's shit, we'll, it's only £2o isn't it.
PC is another level.. I don't even know people bother comparing consoles to it. a full blown PC will make any console look like.........................
And you have to boost up your ego with that comment, didn't ya? :D Anyways, wait for Uncharted 4 to kick TR's ass into oblivion. Ooops, looks like a "weak peasant console" will make your full blown PC look like.......................... .... It looks very good, this game is beautiful, but it's nothing really jaw dropping. It look's 8/10 to me, but it lacks something... Uncharted looks much much more mint.
>Anyways, wait for Uncharted 4 to kick TR's ass into oblivion. Ooops, looks like a "weak peasant console" will make your full blown PC look like.......................... .... Uncharted may look better than TR only on XboxONE. If Uncharted were to be released on PS4 and PC simultaneously it will look better on PC. PS4 literally does nothing better than PC, it only holds exclusives hostage as you already proved.
"nothing better" Best looking racing game (driveclub, also it's super fun), best looking FPS game (killzone), best looking third person action game (infamous, the graphics in this game and especailly particle effects can melt your eyes and give you orgasm), best looking action RPG (bloodborne), best looking cinematic game (the order), soon best looking open world RPG (horizon) and also soon best looking action adventure (uncharted 4), best looking sports games (UFC, PES), best looking horror game (until dawn) with other awesome looking games in making like Deep Down, Detroit, even Ratchet & Clank as the best looking platformer game, and many more. "If Uncharted were to be released on PS4 and PC simultaneously" If this, if that... But it won't, because all PC is getting are multiplatbones, that developers don't care that much, they will throw just sharper textures, add MSAA, which is too consuming anyways, and pc master race have reasons to brag xD. In previous generations after 2 years of consoles on the market (it's more than 2 years already) PC versions looked really much much better than their console counterparts, now it's copy-paste, a little sharper textures and totally no original exclusives. Btw. wait untill TR comes out for PS4 and I'm 90% sure it will look pretty much as it does on PC on highest, minus few minor things, maybe SLIGHTLY worse textures here and there. Yes PC fanboys, this cash you put into your beast of a machine was a really good idea :D. Sarcasm btw.
@Lordani66 You keep proving my point. The only reason you can say a game looks better on PS4 is because it will never release on PC. You keep talking about exclusives but the actual conversation is about graphics. The equivalent of bragging to a blind person you have better eyesight than them. If you haven't noticed the trend, many new "console exclusives" are being released on PC too :) Anyway, you are completely correct when you say the PS4 in comparison will have worse textures, worse framerate, lacks advanced processing features, locked to 1080p resolution or less. PC's used to cost a lot to build YEARS ago. You can get a $400-$500 machine that can match or many times exceed the PS4. Go to youtube and search "potato masher" and be amazed at what cheap PC parts can do. Even then the cash we put into our "beast machines" we save a lot more on games. You guys pay $60+ a pop but we can get games for so much less. Sometimes even 90% off. Let's say you purchase 10 games in 1 year. You can buy quadruple the amount of games for that amount on PC. BTW I just paid $40 for Rise of the Tomb Raider. A $20 savings on a brand new game. But man PC gaming is expensive /s.
"The only reason you can say a game looks better on PS4 is because it will never release on PC." AKA because developers don't care about this platform and it's distinguishable more and more with every generation. It doesn't change the fact that those exclusives look better than any multiplatbone on PC at ultra. In price of 300$ xD. That was my point and you totally didn't get it. "If you haven't noticed the trend, many new "console exclusives" are being released on PC too :) " Like which ones? A few fighting games because they got new publishers, that like to throw multiplatbones for Piss Sea pleb? Like DOA and MK? Oh, then let me laugh at the fact how many problems those games had on release for PC xD. "Anyway, you are completely correct when you say the PS4 in comparison will have worse textures, worse framerate, lacks advanced processing features, locked to 1080p resolution or less." -.- you are stoopeed beyond belief. Even XOne plays this game at 1080p and 30 fps. PS4 will either be 1080p 30fps and look like PCs ultra (which basically looks almost like Xbox One setting with such minor differences they are almost impossible to spot without close ups in side-by-side comparisons). This clearly shows that the more powerfull PS4 will outperform Xbox One, and this port will either look like PC version or like almost PC version and play in 60 fps. I'd rather have 30 fps and better graphics, because human eye percepts outside world in actually 23fps (some argue it's 25, some that it's 20 but whetever), so I'd take more realistic 30 fps any day over unrealistic, animation-like looking 60 fps, especially in a game that wants to look realistic (i welcome 60 fps in 3d platformers, racing games, sports and fighting games).
"You guys pay $60+ a pop but we can get games for so much less. Sometimes even 90% off. Let's say you purchase 10 games in 1 year. You can buy quadruple the amount of games for that amount on PC." I guess it's a tradition for PC pleb to bring this up isn't it? 60$+? Maybe if you are retarded you pay that much. Console exclusives and some AAA multiplatform games cost 40-60$ tops. Equivalent for PC cost 30-45$, and actually the prices start to come closer and closer. 90% off? Maybe if said game is on steam sale for the third time, and it's totally not new. Okay, then we get 24 free games if we pay 40$ for PSN plus, and many price drops too, like sometimes 80%, 50%, etc. for AAA games. Already beat your "10 games per year" BS. You are talking about a PC that costs 400-500$? How sweet. In the whole period of current generation you will change the gpu 2 times to keep up with consoles and I'm not even joking. Even with a 1000$ you will have to swap the GPU at least once, because AMD and Nvidia makes total idiots out of you guys and tell you that you really need to buy new GPU after 1,5-2 years xD. I'd rather pay more for games and have tons of them in terms of choice (instead of only multiplatbones on PC) than pay for GPU few times in one single generation. You just have to look at minimal requirements for games for PC circa 2005-2006 (start of generation 7) and compare it to minimal of 2013 (end of generation 7, and actually this gen is stil going on). In the span of that year if you buy a 400$ PC you will have to change your GPU 3 times to keep up with console standard. Good job, master of economy! Oh and btw here's how PCs that cost 400-500$ work: https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Terrible performance and MUCH MUCH lower settings than consoles. Bravo! *claps* But actually more people start to see the dirty tactics of nvidia (especially) and AMD and we have the worst sales of GPUs in a DECADE. I was stupid too to buy a almost 1100$ PC in 2011, and then I bought a 300$ GPU in early 2014. It's just 5 years and 2 years after update and this computer is behind my PS4 in many games: Black Ops 3, Arkahm Knight, GTA V (PS4 never drops for me, and I have seen video of GTX 980 drop to 23 fps xD), Assassin's Creed, Project: CARS (even though I wouldn't give a damn about this ugly game), ad i could count some more. The other way around? Rarely - only witcher (but I heard they optimised it well with updates, so maybe it works just as good) and fallout 4. Not to mention problems in games PCs have taht consoles don't. With consoles it's "you buy a game, you play" with PCs there is a lot of mess like update drivers, update driectx, update C++ redist, update .NET, .dll file is missing, do changes in .cfg file, game doens't work, reinstall, update windows, restart, and on and on and on.
@Lordani66 "...It doesn't change the fact that those exclusives look better than any multiplatbone on PC at ultra." You're comparing exclusives to non exclusives. Completely different games to one another. Proving my point once again and completely ignoring what I mentioned earlier. If the game was released on both PC and PS4 the game will always look better on PC. You clearly don't understand the concept. "Like which ones?" AA and AAA games like ReCore, The Witness, No Man's Sky, Sea of Thieves, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Killer Instinct, SFV, Kojima's console exclusive? "...PS4 will either be 1080p 30fps and look like PCs ultra (which basically looks almost like Xbox One setting with such minor differences they are almost impossible to spot without close ups in side-by-side comparisons)." Look, I get it, you're trying to justify your purchase but saying PS4 will look like the PC's ultra is just a plain lie. It's been proven over and over again, PS4 can only match about medium settings on a PC with missing advanced features. Plenty of videos on youtube can show you that. PS4 GPU's has been outdated for years now. Here's a youtube playlist showing you what a $350 PC can do... https://www.youtube.com/wat... "Okay, then we get 24 free games if we pay 40$ for PSN plus, and many price drops too, like sometimes 80%, 50%, etc. for AAA games. Already beat your "10 games per year" BS. " Do you get to keep those 24 "free games" when you no longer have PS+? Or do you get these "free games" without PAYING for PS+? I don't think you understand what the word free means. "In the whole period of current generation you will change the gpu 2 times to keep up with consoles and I'm not even joking." But clearly you are joking. 2 GPU changes to "keep" up with consoles?!?! You're clearly a troll dude. I don't even know why I read this far but I'll send my response anyway.
I actually gave you a thumbs up/agree button because you at least tried to use common sense, unlike most people here. Failed, but still you did some research at least. So let's go: "You're comparing exclusives to non exclusives. Completely different games to one another. Proving my point once again and completely ignoring what I mentioned earlier." How is that proving any of your points and how is it any different? You said "PS4 does nothing better graphically-wise than PC" I have proven you wrong in so many levels. There's no need to contemplate about any "what ifs". Of course PCs SHOULD be able to give us 3x or even 4x the graphics the are doing ATM with it's power. That's even more laughable if you think, that muuuuuch weaker consoles (compared to those super high ends) do just a little less in multiplatforms, because if you pay for PC, you pay this extra cash for manufacturers. Whatever suits your needs mate. "AA and AAA games like ReCore, The Witness, No Man's Sky, Sea of Thieves, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Killer Instinct, SFV, Kojima's console exclusive?" The witness is a small, indie game, let's not talk about such creations, it's not any AA or especially AAA game. No man's sky was NEVER meant to be PS4 exclusive, so was Sea of Theives and so Was RiTR. Tomb Raider and Street fighter were multiplatform games since beginning, I will only give you Kojima's titles and KI. You are right with them. So maybe I should start counting those games taht used to be PC exclusives and are now multiplatformers? Like half life, counter strike, crysis, call of duty, medal of honour, far cry, quake, doom, unreal tournament, battlefield - and these are all AAA games, and I'm most certain this list is not even 30% full. "Look, I get it, you're trying to justify your purchase but saying PS4 will look like the PC's ultra is just a plain lie." PCs ultra (not talking about MSAA here and hair effects, which are options every PC player turns off anyways) is not that much better than Xbox One graphics (as seen on the video) so PS4 will definatelly do Better than XOne or will go 60 fps at slightly better graphics. I'm not justyfying anything. I'm just constantly proving you wrong about everything you say. "It's been proven over and over again, PS4 can only match about medium settings (...)" Oh yeah? Where? Just don't say Digital Fraudry, this shi*hole of a site overexaggerates their stories so many times (as they did with battlefield and latest dragon's age games). They take screenshots of rare hiccups console gets and loads a texture 0,00001s later than it should and there, they say consoles settings are at medium xD. So many companies do this to make PC gaming relevant and to make PC fanboys feel better. Here:
http://suckmyjoystick.blogs... There you have comparisons of many current day AAA games, PC vs consoles. PC wins in 3 of them, consoles in few too, but 90% are pretty much the same settings for PS4 and PC. You can't tell me after watching those that the differences are so signifficant, that the PS4 version must be on "medium" settings. If you do, you are a chronic PC placebo fanboy. You know, the one who sees gigantic differences between those games on the side of PC, just b ecause under one side it says "PC" and on the other "PS4". "Do you get to keep those 24 "free games" when you no longer have PS+? Or do you get these "free games" without PAYING for PS+? I don't think you understand what the word free means." Yep, you keep them. It's just 30-40$, 24 games, super good deals for upcoming games and those that were released. That makes you save more money than you wouldn't get PSN plus. "But clearly you are joking. 2 GPU changes to "keep" up with consoles?!?!" GTX 660 was meant to kill current consoles. It's irrelevant already. Then it was 760. It is becoming irelevant in benchmark tests too and consoles (PS$ mostly) beat it. And those are the cards that were in 400-500 builds. Next will be 960 and 970. Already 2 changes. Where was I joking? My R9 280X works worse than my PS4 does in some games already, and it was too meant to "destroy consoles" It didn't. Get it already, PC fanboys. You pay and pay and pay for your upgrades like stupid, and you get nothing out of it. Btw. i watched that sweet video you sent and I bursted out laughing. First, he took the prices from his ASS probably, maybe used components IDK, he didn't count in mouse, keyboard, gamepad, OS and that's a cost too. Also why didn't he add the cost of a blu ray drive that consoles do have? That's another 50$ (or so) in his pocket... Then i watched gameplay of AC. HAHAHAHHAHAH That short draw distance, those terrible textures in the far distances, those 30 fps drops, those bugs whn doing the climbing/leap of faith animation on top. And on the top of the care - Far Cry 4, with those sweet dips to 0 fps for few seconds constantly :D. Yep, that's a great PC. And all those games looked clearly worse than on PS4 so yeah. (as I have proven in link above, PS4 graphics in AAA multiplatform games look mostly just like PCs ultra, with of course only lower AA and shadow quality sometimes). And then this idiot said "this game looks really noticable better on PC than on PS4", I think he never saw this video that clearly shows that it's the PS4 version that looks better: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Don't use such biased and fanboyish sources. They will make you look like a fanboy even quicker.
