    It still looks magnitudes better on the PC than the PS4. The tech demo made that VERY clear.

    • themuIe

      Yeah no shit. Does it look magnitudes better for your wallet too?

      • dakan45

        yes it does, current pc hardware as just as powerful as the ps4.

        Or you are under the stupid belief that consoles can compete with pc. People bash cod for bad graphics, well black ops and max payne 3 have more or less the same graphics on pc. Infact max payne 3 on consoles runs on the lowest settings of the pc version. You dont want to see just cause 2, sleeping dogs, far cry 3 and crysis 3 runnig on pc.

        They cant even run on consoles at the current state they are on pc.

        Thats how dated your “cheap” consoles are.

        BTW we get the engine for free to expirement and make what we want. If we want to sell it for money then we got to pay EPIC games.

        • themuIe

          ?? I didn’t question the obvious. Dont you know what the expression “yeah, no shit” means? No need to get your panties in a bunch there, douche-bag.

          The current state of PCs is they’re also more expensive to run things “magnitudes” better, and there’s also its share of hassle involved that goes beyond simply popping a disc in and enjoying the game. Many PC games of today are limited because of their console counterparts, meaning some of them are actually ports from console versions. Pathetic I know, but I’m not the one paying extra money for a powerful GPU only to get a minimal increment in performance. Besides, most games on PC SUCK (all those games you mention are low-tier garbage compared to the best console exclusives from Sony and other console-only third party developers) anyway and they miss out dozens of the best games exclusive to consoles.

          • dakan45

            I dont know where to start with you dipshit.

            First of all, no pcs are not overpiced, wherever you can build a pc that is more powerfull than the shtity 8 year old piece of craps outhere is not relevant to money and other counterparts. It is relevant to the port of the game not being shit but most importantly to get past the retarded fucking idea that pc games look a bit better on pc in exchange for expensive hardware. Playing a dx11 game on 1080p on 60 fps with superior textures, lighting, advanced ambient occlusion MSAA and TXAA antialising along with tons of mods ENB series and advanced depth of field and physics and superior FOV is nowhere near the same as playing the game game in dx9, 480-720p on roughly 30 fps with inferior texture lighting no ambient occlusion antialising methods, bad physics, nor mods along with shitty controls and binocular fov.

            Current pcs are 10 times more powerfull than the shitty consoles.

            “poping the disk”

            Pc will never be as simple becasue pc gamers are not retards, but console gamig is not far behind. Pathces needed ro fix games or mp that are often making things worse, online passes to play sp games. Those things exist in consoles and soon enough you will see that the new consoles will slowly bring games that require 1 time intrenet acount activation on a singleplayer game. So you will need interent and to make a acount to play game along with other dlc crap. So consoles are quickly becoming complex and more expensive with games going from 60 bucks possibly to 70.

            I think jimqusition said that pretty well in “x360 and ps3 are shitty pcs” Google it

            Finally “‘I am not the one paying extra money for a powerful GPU only to get a minimal increment in performance.”

            First of all ,if i upgrade now i will get atleast 20 fps more in all my games, also, no you dont have the chocie to upgrade on consoles. but you propably are the one who pays MS to play online Peer to Peer or psn or 10 bucks extra for games and say “oh consoles are cheaper” when you still run the same fucking old shit harwdare from 8 year ago. This generation is by far the longest due to development costs. Consoles are not meant to stay alive for that long.

            Finally what extra money for minimal perfomance you reffer to? My cpu and gpu are 4 years old and i run most games on high. They were not top of the line either. They are games you can run with old pcs and games you cant due to either having suprisingly better graphics or being bad ports.

            No i cannot play crysis 3 with my videocard but that by no way means that the shitty version of crysis 3 that you play on consoles is anywhere near the lowest settings of crysis 3.

            Infact the crysis 1 port looks like shit compared to pc version

            .”most games on PC SUCK (all those games you mention are mid to low-tier
            garbage compared to the best console exclusives from Sony and other
            console-only third party developers) anyway and they miss out dozens of
            the best games exclusive to consoles.”

            This is by far the most retarded argument ever.

            What are those awesome games yo ueffer to? Gays of war? Or halo that looks like the guns and enemies are made from mattel? Do you know how bungie came to be? They were a mac company and MS boguht them and put em to work on their precious xbox. Do i need to mention fable? Or the massive fail alan wake was. As for ps3, quantic dream is a load of shit, so lets not even bother to go there. God of war was fun till 2, but now they just milking for new ideas. Not that these kind of games are particulary interesting on the pc platform. Uncharted is a indiana jones of call of duty. It was fun the first time, you could say the second was good, but thats about it. ENOUGH. Resitance was a average game the second was quite good, the third is shit. Killzone series are a load of utter shit. Wtf does the new one have aside from graphics? A cover system!!! Infamous is pure garbage.

            So yeah big super awesome games there bro.

            Do you even know how these things work? Sony is PAYING thsoe developers to make those games for ONE platform. Ofocurse they will be super optimized and will have exclusivity. Same with xbox. Do you know who pays to develop games on pc? NO ONE because no one owns pc it is a free platform. On consoles, ms and sony have to approve every game for release and from the 60 bucks, 10 have to be given for royaliy fees to sony and ms. You would think since they get 20 out of every sale by being the publishers,they would sell the games for 50, but nooooo greedsony and microgreed want to get 30 bucks out of every exclusive sold, money that they paid for the development and they want to get back like they are their gain from licensing and sales.

            I wonder for how long is this shit gonna go on. Do you know how much money dead space 3 had to make? 5 million just to keep the series going. The costs are rising and the new consoels will be even more expensive. Exclusivity will die because you cant pay 50+ millions to develop a exclusive games. You need multiplatform sales to justify the development costs. Most devs are afraid of the new consoles and the development costs they will bring. It wont be long before many of them will choose to go back on pc for less costs and sales requirements.

            Finally experiance has taught me that if i cannot play the game with a mouse to move the camera around and aim the crosshair, if i cannot run the game at 1080p that you cannot see awful need for antialising and if i cannot run at atleast 45 fps, it doesnt worth playing. I cant have fun no matter how “good” the game is, because i cant be ok with subpar aiming controls, zoomed in tunnel vision and blurry graphics but most importantly visuals and laggy 30 fps framerate.

            “other console-only third party developers”

            AHAHAHHAHAHHAH You might wanna elaborate on this one because there is no such thing as console only developers becasue it makes em cool. The reason sometimes there is no pc version is becasue they suck at making pc version or the budget is too small for a third version. I would really like to see those shinning examples of console only developers with amazing games. I ll debunk them one by one.

            pc has far far far far more exlusives and more freedom than the consoles. Any one can make a game and do what they want with it. There is freedom, there is mods, there is free games along with f2p. Pc gaming costs as much as you willing to spend and it is for smart people. Also pc gaming is full of innovation. Now if you want to say that those games suck. Cool, go play your trypical handholding game with alot of polish and high production values but typical uninspired simplistic gameplay, overused experiance and idea and finally complete lack of interest by the pc gamers.
