Skyrim Visual Comparison Videos, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC Low to Ultra

Bethesda released Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim this last Friday and for those who have yet to purchase the game, NXUS has compiled a couple videos to sway opinion on which platform may be best suited for you. While it may be obvious that the PC holds the crown with superior visuals and gameplay features through the use of mods, not everyone has a PC capable of running Skyrim on the highest visual settings.

The story is too old to be commented.

*not everyone has a PC capable of running Skyrim on the highest visual settings

Anyone who made a computer in the last 3-4 years made with the right choices can run it near max settings. If anyone is playing with an older computer then that then they probably arent serious about PC gaming.

A GTX 260 runs the game at high settings 1080p with high settings atleast.

Looks like the PS3's draw is a bit shoddy. I really guess Bethesda didn't put much into the system. I do have to say the tearing on the 360 is very noticable, not so much on PS3 though. That is a good thing.

Honestly, I've been playing the ps3 version and haven't noticed any frame dips or tears... at all.

"Anyone who made a computer in the last 3-4 years"

That's the problem. The majority of people buying PC's don't build there own.

Not everyone has had the money to buy a new computer in the last 3-4 years. Lol. The economy has been really bad in most of the world.

You need to replace that console very 3-4 years too, its not like it lasts 10 years, consoles do tend to fail 3-4 years into their life cycle, when the same thing happens to a PC, the part that went bad just needs to be replaced.

Games bought are much cheaper on PC.

I bought BF3 at launch at 38usd. I can currently preorder Assassins creed revelations at 35usd.

Bottom line is PC games are a lot cheaper then console counter parts. Even if every game bought at average is 15usd cheaper and 20 games are bought a year. You just saved yourself 300usd a year. Now imagine where that figure will touch in 3-4 years period. Its literally enough to rebuild a new PC every 3-4 years for free(which to be honest isnt even needed).

Hence console gaming is actually more expensive in the long run.

the first comparison video is from kotaku. -_-

and the pc version is a beast, i wish i had a goos pc instead of the one i have right now.

TheGamingArt3543d ago

PC version is easily the best. The kotaku video is a joke though. PC <- ps3 <- 360

The first video isn't "from" Kotaku, they just used that guy's video. Robbaz has been doing comparisons and PC videos for a long time, I've been subscribed to him since like, forever. As far as I know, he has absolutely nothing to do with Kotaku.

PC with ultra and a tweaked INI file is pretty amazing
