No, you can play most games with a budget graphics card. But you wont have the same effects.

ON the upside if you have a powerful card you will have better graphics and effects than PS3 or XBOX.


PS3/XBOX is no different that an a PC, but with less features.

I don't really get what you're asking. If you're asking if you can play games that you bought to PS3 or XBOX 360 on PC - you cannot do that. However, if you buy the same game just PC version of it - you will be able to play it.

Are you implying that, to play a PS3 or XBOX 360 game (that's available on PC too) you need a powerful GPU?
Well, techically, you won't be needing a high end GPU. A mid range GPU should suffice to get playable frame rates at low resolutions and at lowered settings.

You cannot play PS3 and XBOX games on PC. Whether online or not.

No you cannot. I already told you that in another thread. Why do you multipost?

Why would you want to do that anyway? There are plenty of PC games, and most of the games available on XBOX 360 or PS3 have PC versions as well.

They might have been talking about PS2.. You can do that with an emulator, but for it to be legal, you have to own a PS2 yourself so you could rip its bios.

    The problem is, it's not original. Buy those games, and then they'd work, in both for single player and multiplayer.

    @stephen24, please do us a favor, not trying to troll, however it is very hard to understand your questions, as for emulation of xbox 360 or playstation 3, currently it isnt possible, as for downloading games, unless they are free to play, is also known as pirating or stealing, and is illegal, we cant help you if you are stealing games, however, you can buy most all games here
    http://store.steampowered.com/
    This is like xbox live marketplace or playstation store, you can buy pc games here

    I just dont get the question he is asking in the first place.

    You can't play console games that you buy from the store on the computer.

    You can't download games for console from the internet and use them on the computer.

    And buy your games bud. If you wanna play on the PC, use Steam. Too bad you missed the Summer Sale that drained my wallet.

    And Recon, you have a lot of games. I've only got like 130. I might add you.
