Forums - Gaming Discussion - No Other Console Game this Gen Will match Crysis Graphics(56k)!

@vlad.. so your saying ur $8K rig produces better graphics than my $299 360.. thats A SURPRISE. I would think your purchase would be a waste if it didnt.



Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.

5 THINGS I'd like to see before i knock out:

a. a AAA 3D sonic title

b. a nintendo developed game that has a "M rating"

c. redesgined PS controller

d. SEGA back in the console business

e. M$ out of the OS business

In the technical side? no.

Though in art, fragile has it beaten imo.

Though what i love about crysis is that not only does it kick the shit out of ps360 games, it also has better art than them. The game has a beautiful art direction.

I'm sorry your awesome HDTV which costs god knows how much makes games look so much better than my cheap small SDTV.... that's A SURPRISE!!!! I'd think your purchase would be a waste if it didn't.

 

 

Edit: Did the title say "best graphics for yout buck" or any of that sort? No, then price doesn't matter, therefore all the console gamers whining about price need to stop QQing and live with the fact Crysis GFX > Cosole GFX.

Yeah and you can make a PC for about as cheap that will run Crysis better than what it cost you to buy your HDTV and your console.

 

I don't watch TVs and I don't give a shit about graphics so why would I blow money on something so useless?

Yet another PC myth.

PS3 = 399 bucks

---

Intel DX58SO Motherboard = $240

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 = $150

Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 = $150

Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Performance 4GB PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM = $50

Cooler Master HAF 932 Black Full Tower = $150

Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB Hard Drive = $100

Antec P/S 500W ATX12V 2.01 PS/2 SIZE DUAL 12V OUTPUTS = $50

Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 100 Keyboard Mouse Combo = $30

LG Electronics GGW-H20L Black Dual Layer BD-RE Writer/HD DVD-ROM = $230

 = 1150 bucks

 

Whoa now I fully outperform a PS3 for just nearly thrice the price, awesome!

He said "you can make a PC for about as cheap that will run Crysis better than what it cost you to buy your HDTV and your console." ...

Now, this may not be the fairest comparison because the PC is refurbished but for $850 (Canadian, about $700 US) you can get a 21 inch monitor and a PC that can play Crysis ( http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=BDL10003303&logon=&langid=EN )

 

Anyways, most PC gamers on a budget pick up their hardware when there is a deal (sale, rebate, refurbished) ... Over the past year I have watched one of my friends rebuild his entire system (Motherboard, CPU, Memory, Graphics Card and Case) for about $400 and he can play Crysis at a decent resolution, so the PS3's performance at the price is far from amazing.



If you're going to post crysis pics at least post good ones:

Link4

Link5

 

How many console games can you do this in (ie face-to-wall and still see crisp textures)?

Its not just the overall scenic details in Crysis (which Consoles do decently well at), its the attention to detail as seen above and in the following:

Details1

Details2

Details3

Details4

 

I've played damn near every game mentioned in this thread the way it was meant to be played (ie maxed settings on large high quality HD displays with 5.1 sound) and while some of them rival crysis in a particular area none of them ever really hit that quality mark for any sustained period.

As was mentioned already, high resolution textures require lots of memory capacity and memory bandwidth and the consoles are sorely sorely lacking in this department.



To Each Man, Responsibility

This seems like a loss for the console side. It's no longer "MGS4 is just as good, Crysis isn't that great" but rather "well a PC set up is more expensive, so of course it looks better". Which I'm pretty sure was never even a question. That's essentially saying "yeah you're right".
