@bakagami

I was just happy someone mentioned the classic pitfall of MS. Although with Halo 2 on Vista their excuses made absolutely no sense claiming that they needed the power of the OS and DX10 to run the game.

It's annoying not to have the game at launch, having to wait 6-8 months for the potential converters to get a 360 just bugs. I'm not planning to buy another one just for kicks, people just want the game already.

You are forgetting that is one of the highlights’ of a console is not being upgradable

When you go buy a ps3/360 game you don’t have to check to make sure your system can run it

And also you don’t need to spend 2.000 on a pc to play games

A friend of mine wanted a pc that could play games we went to Wal-Mart bought a $360 dollar emachines

Put in another gig of ram and a video card and he’s been playing games on it whit no problems

I copied my wow account to his hard drive and went strolling thru dalaran and it was moving nicely

And the best part is if anything goes wrong he has 1 year warranty whit emachines and an extended 2 years from Wal-Mart

Ahem. World of Warcraft? Since when does that need a good pc to play?

An expensive PC is required when you're playing things like Crysis or STALKER.

Even with a Core 2 Duo and 8800GTX graphics card, I still can't use the Global Illumination function in STALKER without framerate problems.

I'm tempted to try the game again when I get my NEW system. Still planning it at the moment but it'll probably be a Corei5 processor and an Nvidia GF100 graphics card. I wonder if THAT will be able to do it.

By the way, I only just noticed a certain post in this discussion...

Xbox360 emulator on the PC?

Are you nuts? There's not even a properly working PS2 emulator on the PC yet.

Lol Northern, I think that by being an "ignorant console consumer" a majority of people are buying something that is easier to take care of and has more games available on it, as we're seeing here.

jdj:...World of Warcraft doesn't take much to run...at all.

DG: There is a properly working PS2 emulator on PC.

There is, yes, I tried it out. It emulates PS2 hardware fine, but it's not properly compatible with the games. I tried out my copy of Final Fantasy X. I had hoped to download a game save and fight the Dark Aeons, since I couldn't be bothered when I played it on the PS2 and I lost my save... >_<

The game runs but lags during combat, and REALLY REALLY lags during FMV scenes. It's like watching a freeze frame stop motion animation.

And that was, at the time at least, the game that runs the BEST on it.

What dunces!
Irony is that the more games that MS block on the PC, the less reason there is to choose a PC over a Mac!!

Does the left hand know (or care) what the right hand does at MS??


Maybe they're trying to make up for their future humiliation when its revealed that Natal doesn't actually work? (well, its racist: it only works for white people! (sometimes)) :~O

Next thing they will say is that Windows is not suited for PCs...

I dont mine exclusives for PS3 or Xbox 360 but the fact is this was coming to PC, it had a lot of media and promotion on PC, DX10, quad-core.

And after a long wait and hyping up alot of PC users with it...they just drop it with a totally weak excuse? fail...

The truth is that M$ is pulling the strings behind the scenes to downplay games for PC. It's simple, they need to give a good reason for people to go buy their outdated exclusive hardware(360).

If nowadays a $500 is more capable then the console, can you imagine this two years from now? That's what M$ is fearing IMO.

And now that Windows apparently doesnt need pc gaming market frackfest (Vista & DX10) cause Windows 7 is selling very well AFAIK, all pc gamers are getting screwed (more then b4).

I fracking hate this company bullcrap.
