I actually think Gears of War 3 impressed me more, on the consoles, than UC3 ever did, graphically. That and Alan Wake. However, UC2 and UC3 make up the best looking PS3 games along with MGS4 in my opinion.

But nothing beats BF3 on the PC. I love it so much :)

considering that the Sony is having trouble keeping up with the demands of the PS2 still I dont think many care that much, cant the ps2 play ps1 games? I would just keep one of my PS3's if i got a 4

False. For under four hundred dollars you can have a PC that blows away anything the dinky PS3 or Xbox can ever deliver. Since your premise is untrue we can dismiss the rest of your post as uninformed nonsense.

I would not go that far as I have encountered a fair amount of resistance to this prediction. If you want to amend that statement to say that anyone with common sense could have predicted this then we would be in agreement.

I have no idea if people would care that much. Somebody asked the ramifications of Sony abandoning Teh C3ll and I mentioned one possibility.

Sighs, not all of us like to game on windows pc's. So consoles can be a better choice. PC gamers doesn't = pc elitists. I'm a gamer, regardless of what's under my pc hood. I don't care if the pc is better than a ps3 or a wii or an xbox. At least I can play the Jak series and when I need a break, I'll play Amalur or the darkness 2 on pc. When will you all learn, it's not about money or bragging rights. It's about the games and how we like to play them.

One good thing about Sony and Microsoft going AMD, they might have the same chipsets/specs. This would be an even battle and will make ports work as good or just as bad on both consoles. Bad news is, console exclusives will decide a winner here. If graphics and specs are the same, who would you go with?

God you're stupid. That wasn't even the cost of a monitor either, just the rig.

Indeed it is and I agree, but for me the best looking game has always been FFX. The vibrant colors, the peace of some scenes where you can actually see how lovely it is. I'm sorry but only FFX and a few others have left me with a shock and awe moment.

Thing is about pc though is that people start bashing consoles for being weak in power. Consoles are computers but with less capabilities. Issue is that consoles and pc's are becoming similar in games, music, movies, tv, etc. The only problem I have with pc elitists is they actually argue over graphics and what they can truly do. But it is all based on chipsets, graphics cards and other add-ons which require the games to run as powerfully as they can on a pc. People who brag are annoying. Appreciate what you have, let others enjoy what they have. Gaming is a joy, not a moment to bash others for any reason.

If people only care about how good their rig is and how potent, go to the pc forums and talk about it. But in here its the vgf, a video game forum. I like games as much as the next guy but I am annoyed at all these same typical discussions over whats better, why pc is better, which console sells more.
My question is this, why can't we talk about whats coming in the future, rather than what's being argued every single day?

Edit: I didn't see that one coming of Idle's comment being deleted. It wasn't offensive was it?

It's hard to believe that Sony will ditch the cell processor. Here are a list of a reasons I've derived from a few articles.
Easy backwards compatibility with PS3 games.
A failed joint project with IBM to create a PowerPC chip for future Playstations.
Sony has already dropped $3 billion on the Cell.
Developers are getting more and more familiar with the Cell and software tools.
Toshiba sold it's Cell factory to Sony. No need for Sony to abandon the chip because now it owns the means to manufacture the Cell in bulk.

Exactly. I think the drawback of the PC is more the potential aggravation for some people of initially building and maintaining one. You have to research sometimes to get the cheapest build. A lot of people aren't into that. A console is nice because you can just buy one and they make games that work on it for up to 10 years with no effort from you. Besides, as you said the difference in graphics isn't that big of a deal. I just like being able to use the mods in games like Skyrim : )

Now isn't that ironic!
My post gets removed for simply quoting Ron (previous page), while the original (offensive) post remains...
I never said anything even remotely aggressive/offensive...

"Now isn't that ironic!"

No. That's not what "irony" means.

Not from what I noticed.

Hey Cromer.
You're just trying to troll me again bud...

"Irony : The expression of one's meaning by using language that normally signifies the opposite, typically for humorous or emphatic effect"

Actually, ignore that, I really dont care enough to argue right now...

Nah, Ron was getting all mad with PC gamers.
See the post at the bottom of PG 1.
