Forums - Microsoft Discussion - GRAW and similar: comparison

(Boy, not that many Xbots at VGChartz, eh?)

I had a look at GRAW2 and graphically it looked fantastic, but I really want to know how 360 games in general compare visually to their PC counterparts. Do they look better or worse?

My gaming PC is capable of running maxxed out settings with at least 2x FSAAand/or HDR and 8xAF for games such as Far Cry, Doom3, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, F.E.A.R. and Half-Life 2 (or pretty much any FPS currently available) at 720p/1080i; I've checked screenshots but they just don't do games justice anymore, and I haven't found any comparison reviews or videos, so if you have experienced these games on both PC and the 360, please let me know your thoughts and opinions. Please!

Well I've played Rainbow Six Vegas on both the PC and 360. I played on my friend's PC, and I don't know the stats, but it was a decent rig, nothing too special. A very nice 22 in ws lcd though. The game definitely looked better on the PC from what I can remember.

Half Life 2's home is on the PC...it runs best on it. If you have a pretty good computer, Half Life 2 is definitely better on that. FEAR I don't know, because I couldn't get the game to run well on my PC, haven't seen too much of that game at all.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

I really don't think the difference is that big. I have a PC that can show off Fear and I played the 360 version, there is a definite difference but it's not as massive as some may think.



Thanks to Blacksaber for the sig!

Typically, a top of the line PC is going to easily out-graphic the 360 in most every way, simply because they take advantage of better things out there (360 can't do DX10 for the most part).

It's just a fact of life. However, you can still get the same games on the 360. And for me, I much rather would pay $400 to play my favorite PC games than buy a $2,000 video game rig.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

Yeah I have to agree with Mrstickball, i do a lot of that it seems. The 360 version of a PC game usually looks like the PC title on medium settings. Which is fine with me.

You just need to take into account that a PC is much more than a gaming rig as well, so paying $1000 instead of $400 isn't that big of a deal. Web browsing, gaming, movies, music, tons of stuff that can be done and customized much more than a console, not to mention easily upgradable.
