Quake 4, run like ass...... Half Life 2.... runs lower then it does on the same hardware on PC...... FEAR runs a lot slower on consoles.....

Lets take FEAR... 1280x720 at 30fps on console with very some very slighty tweaked lighting....

FEAR on a 7800 GTX ( RSX ) runs maxed out at 1280x1024 with no AA at nearly 67fps..

Even an Nividia 6800GS, a GPU that has half the power of RSX runs the game at the same frame rate....

What about Doom 3?

Console version runs at 1280x720 at 60fps with dynamic resolution scaling and no MSAA..

PC 7800 GTX runs the game at 1280x1024 with 4xMSAA at 74fps and 108fps with no MSAA...

Console are weak sauce....

Then surely if the games are availible on consoles then Consoles can run them. Am I wrong?

7800 GTX still superior ROPs and RAM bandwidth, while RSX has 7600 GT's ROPs and RAM bandwidth.

Btw, ATI Radeon X1xx0 DX9c GPUs has MSAA i.e. the problem is with NVIDIA's DX9c GPUs.

A game that was made from scratch on cryengine 3 is not the same as a ported game from cry engine 2.

Crysis 1 is impossible on consoles, thats why they had to re develop it on cryengine 3 which looks very underwhelming to the original and misses a lot of features. Therefore crysis 1 is still exclusive. Crysis1 on consoles is a mere mod done using crysis 2, except console kiddies were stupid enough to pay for it

#24 Posted by GamerwillzPS (8530 posts) -

Yeah, welcome to the world of consoles where you pay £200 to play games at 15fps with lots of blur in the screen that you can barely see the game.

Yeah. Crysis on consoles is 15fps galore! I can't believe that consolites are happy enough to play it like that. Including all the horrible jaggies and low-res stuff.

The series should remain as PC exclusive.

So you are telling me that the reason it is "exclusive" is because Crysis uses a different engine, isn't as pretty and came out later on consoles, where it is also clearly available, listed as Crysis, and plays the same with the same levels and characters and an upgraded engine? Then you go ahead and say it misses a lot of features, and yet you list none.

Why cant my PC play GOW3?

Oh yh I forgot because its exclusive and its on a different platform.

MaskedPlayer

Probably for the same reason your PS3 cant run ARMA 2. The difference between the PS3 and PC in this argument is that the PC COULD run GOW3 if it was made for PC too yet PS3 doesnt have a hope in hell of running ARMA 2.

Recap: While the textures have the ability to look better on better PC rigs, the Xbox 360 version is comparable overall. Mass Effect is a beautiful experience on both platforms but each version battles graphical issues. In some situations the PC version will outshine the Xbox 360 in the environments and setting, which the Xbox 360 version can outshine the PC release with better looking characters from time-to-time. It's really a too close to call and for the average PC, either version is gorgeous.

I have no need to troll, im just speaking fact. Crysis 1 in it original form is impossible to port to consoles, i have stated my case and all you brought is denial. Consolites essentially paid for a mod done in crysis 2. Accept the facts.

I already accepted the fact that Crysis is on consoles, but apparently you can't. You may as well argue that Bayonetta is Xbox 360 exclusive with that kind of pathetic attempt to keep a game "exclusive".

It misses a whole level on the console version... and if I remember correctly there are more artificial barriers to prevent you from straying too much... the nanosuit is different...

It's agame that shares the same name as Crysis, that's about it.

#39 Posted by menes777 (2643 posts) -

On topic: Easy answer, those old PC games were written for PC and not for console. Games made with PC in mind do not port well to PC despite the opposite.

#40 Posted by Wasdie (49747 posts) -

Can't just take a DX game or an OpenGL game and run it on a console. OpenGL and DX are built for the X86 instruction set. No console has an X86 architecture.

So they have to actually port the renderer to the API of the game console. That's a time consuming process and often it doesn't work well.

The rumors are that the PS4 will have an X86 architecture which is amazing for developers. If it does have the X86 chip, it will be able to get PC ports much more easily and be extremely easy to program for if you're coming from the PC world.

Also the replies in this thread sum up everything that's wrong with SWs. Ignorance everywhere.

How does the nanosuit work on consoles? Genuine question - I haven't played the console version. I guess it must miss a lot of features since the PC version uses a lot of buttons, more than consoles have.

[QUOTE="MaskedPlayer"][QUOTE="mrfrosty151986"][QUOTE="MaskedPlayer"]  My point was that consoles cant play old pc games because those are exclusives.

I listed the game numb nuts, and all the ones listed are available on consoles :|

Then surely if the games are availible on consoles then Consoles can run them. Am I wrong?

Did you even read the OP? The console versions of Quake 4 and Half Life 2 run like ass and look like ass, even compared to how they would run on PCs with similar hardware to PS3s or 360s.

I've beaten Crysis and Crysis Warhead actually, but keep going. You're digging yourself into a nice hole (as if the atrocious writing and idiotic beliefs weren't enough), and it's kind of funny.

:cool:

i aint the one in denial about paying for and playing a mere mod LOL

For someone who isn't in denial, you are trying really hard to convince me you aren't in denial.

Though I guess that is what an unintelligent person in denial would do.:)

Maybe when you grow up and think your life through, you won't be trying first grade trolling on the internet to validate your existance and decision to purchase a gaming PC.

cool attempt at sidestepping via failed reverse psychology. Denial is the first step, and usually the hardest to voercome junior. I know its hard to accept.

Yes I get it, Crysis is on consoles and you are in denial about it so you pretend Crysis on consoles is NOT Crysis on consoles despite very clearly being Crysis, on consoles, with the same levels and weapons and team and characters and literally the exact same game except not as pretty as maxed Crysis and control changes (but still prettier than Crysis on lower settings).

I want to believe you are trolling, but constantly trying to show me you aren't in denial, while using the writing a 9 year old with a barely coherent grasp on spelling and grammar would use, is just really putting you in a poor light here.
