Has anyone here had an opportunity to play a visually awesome game that runs on Xbox 360 and also runs on the PC ?

I was wondering if the same game, Halo 2 for instance, looks better on one versus the other platform. This assumes that rez is the same.

The reason I ask is to further validate my decision to build my new DX10 machine only after the first DX10 game (Crysis probably around 12/2007) is released and to spend $275/325 on a used Xbox 360 right now.

This assumes I will get my new DX10 PC components cheaper by $275/325 in December than if I buy the same components right now.

Therefore, if

1. Xbox 360 games look as good a DX9 PC games
2. I can save $275/325 on components at the end of the year.
3. I am not interested in playing any DX9 games at all.

then anyone with an existing under powered PC would be better getting an Xbox now and building a DX10 machine only after the first DX10 game is released.

Has anyone seen a good looking game the runs on both platforms ???

Yeah, we're all playing Halo 2 on the PC here. Everyone. Even people with Win XP.

If you need constant validation, get a shrink. Or get a wife - they're the same price roughly speaking in the long run.

X Box 360 games ARE DX9 games essentially. As you're not interested in playing these, and there are no DX10 games out yet, what can you do?!!!

Try a nice DX6 optimised game?

This should have been asked in the other thread you have going. Your constant begging for validation is getting annoying.

You're not interested in playing ANY DX9 games???? Good luck with all of that, seeing as how that's all there is right now (as far as latest greatest goes). :roll: :roll: :roll:

dx10 is a little inprovement over dx9c , NOT a new gaming world!

A shrink is $120 an hour... a wife costs more then that by far.

1 Yes, some 360 games look as good DX9 games and maybe some even better.
2 Save 275/325 on what component's?
3 8O

Just wait till the end of the month and use the money you were going to spend on a used 360, and buy one of the r600 chips as they will release the whole line up at once. And yes they will work with agp.

I think Dx10 looks better then Xbox.



/worthless questions you got going on here.



Note: no console will look as good as a PC can if you have the right hardware. The rest is up to the game designers.
April 3, 2007 10:32:30 PM

So do I, and i also think dx9 is better too, like you typed it depends on the hardware. :tongue:
April 3, 2007 10:38:17 PM

i don't think you can say same resolution because why would we play at like 1024*768 when we can play at ridiculous resolutions and kick 360 people in the groin.

Have you ever seen a console game use anti-aliasing? I know I haven't. Ok, how about ansitrophic filtering? Nope I still haven't. In short, computer games have more image enhancing features available to them, to a point.

In terms of gfx:

PC > Wii > PS3 > XBOX > your idea of an X360

PC WINS!

Provided you spend enough on the PC!!

I have played Oblivion on my PC and an Xbox 360.

Now my PC is no quad core DX10 powerhouse but it was better on the PC, the draw distance, lighting, AA, frame rate - everything.

That said Oblivion does have a seriously clunky engine and im not sure whether the frame rate is locked down on the 360?

If anyone knows that would be v. interesting

Well, an XBOX 360 costs what... $350.00? Good luck building a PC that can run oblivion as well for that price.

It isn't hard to build something that will outperform a 360, it is just hard to do it for less than 350 bucks.

If money is no object, then build a badass pc. Hell, if money is no object... just buy a 360 and build a badass pc. If you want a good videogame experience on a limited budget, buy a 360.

Well, considering Microsoft makes a loss on each 360 sold (on hardware costs), I'd like to know how much the 360 actually costs to manufacture...

They lose $126 per console (at the time of the article above).

MS used to lose money on the 360 during the first year. THey are now making a nice profit. The Wii has made profit since day1 and the PS3, well, we all know...
