Hi,

I want some opinion on which version I should get: PC, Xbox 360, PS3.

I played HL Ep1 with my PC and it ran pretty smooth. Should I just go get PC version instead? But I paid for HL 1, HL EP1, HL SOURCE already.......and PC requires installation... so much trouble....compare to XBOX 360 and PS3.

I can't decided which version suits me since XBOX 360 and PS3 version have rumble and can connect to my new 42" HDTV.

PS3 has no good games so it needs some games to increase my library.

Help

like always, if your PC can run it on MAX settings get it for PC (unless you don't like key board mouse set up). If not then go console. As for 360 or PS3 I think you should chose based on which controller you feel more comfortable with. However something you should know is the PS3 version was done by EA UK and not Valve...

I really want to know the PC requirement.

Because when I ran the Demo of the Island forgot exactly what it called. My system doesn't really run 60 FPS withThe dynamic lighting.

PC Configuration:

AMD Athlon 64 3000+
2GB DDR RAM forgot wut's the bus speed
ASUS K8N motherboard
ATI Radeon X800 PE
WINXP
Too many harddisk more than 1.5 TB total.

Do you think my system can handle it as smooth as XBOX 360 / PS3 with the latest graphics update?

Note that my PC cannot run shader 3.0 so I can't play Rainbow Six Vegas, Splinter Cell double agentetc. That's why I got the xbox 360.

So what's the problem of PS3 versoin developed by EA UK?

Damn dude, upgrade your vid card already!

Anyways, if you buy on steam, you could play it like, right now if you wanted.

I'm getting the 360 version though because I know my laptop can't run it.

I'd pick up the PC version, if only because the mods/extra TF2 maps will make the game last a hell of a lot longer than the 360 version.

360.

Why my God made friend?

First, it looks better on 360 and is the only one to be in HD (PS3 will be bad). Second, you can gain points on the 360. Thirdly, the controls are better and the guys at IGN said the 360 version is the better buy. Fourthly, the 360 version has a better community and you can always pick up Halo 3.

Glad to help out. May God treat you well.

The PC version looks the best. The PC version has achievements. The PC version has better controls (arguably - more accurate in multiplayer, anyway). The PC version also has a great unified community, since you have to have Steam to run the game.

Also, mods. PC wins.

I think he/she'scomparing the 360 and ps3 versions, so what he/she says is true. We all no that the PC version will be the best though.

Nah, he should wait until late Q1 08' and just buy a brand new set. Since he'll need to about a year after he buys a vid card upgrade anyway, best to just do that. Or maybe I'm just a lazy person who likes to purchase in full.
