Motherf*ck Consoles!

Xbox, Playstations and whatever else. Slowly mutating into - PC's. I love it. Though I'm not a console guy and don't really respect their limitations it is where I started. So I still give them a little pat on the back.

Now, on to real gaming.....

We all know that consoles are using PC video cards. It would seem just as they get close to us PC gamers we leave them for several more years. Well, here's another one of those times:

http://www.gamespot.com/video/0/6187914/videoplayerpop?

Price? I know most people that love their consoles debate about price. PC gamers know that you don't have to spend a ton to get a good gaming system. Don't get me wrong, PC stuff is more pricey. Well if you compare a floor model tv with a plasma yeah, the plasma will be more! But we know it's worth it.

Plus with consoles now you pay extra for well, extras! A bigger hard drive, memory storage, and even an extra joystick! Find a good television to hook it up to and hopefully a decent sound system (because you have no sound card like a PC).

This graphic card is incredible. It is a new plateau for gamers everywhere (even consoles). Because the trickle down technology will be sweet! It's 4 into one and will take ATI a long time to catch up. Oh and consoles too!

Wii is pretty kool. I can dig the interaction.

You missed the point big time. Didn't read what I typed? That's kool. Your PS3 is outdated at this point, again. Enjoy.

great as long as you can keep it fed and as long as it uses something to put all those cores to work.

in 2 years it will be in the trash bin like everything else

His factoid was off about the max cpu cores available now.. it is more than 4, but that wasn't the point of this anyways.

If you're not using the stuff you can turn it off. But with DirectX 10 out this will really show great potential. This year and next will be fab bro. The mobos, the memory and now the video cards. Sorry. No reset buttons here.

And in 2 years and about every 2 years CONSOLES are trash. The lines are out the doors waiting for the new ones and watch on the news howl people waited for 7 days outside a store.

Howl was he off? What do you know that he doesn't? Please explain. I know AMD was playing with five. But as you typed, that wasn't the point.

Sun has 8 core chips with 8 threads per core in their new T2 cpus. (64 threads per cpu)

We've been using the T1s since they came out, 4 core, 8 thread per core.

The beauty of the T2 chip is that there is a dedicated FPU per core

Not really gaming cpus, but they pack a kick ass punch at 4 or 2 watts of power consumption per thread

I figured that's where you were. You're not talking consumer. You're talking company. Hell, my ex's father was an engineer and made all type of mobos and stuff. Apples and oranges. Shame on you. Get out!

a console is a computer, and just like a computer it gets outdated. i'm sure in 1.5-2 years, this will be outdated as well. technology, she's a bitch.

Part of the problem is that when new games come out for the PC they require increasingly higher demand hardware. So even if you spend $2200 on a new gaming PC with the best card, you'll have to drop another $400 on a new card to play the next best game a year and a half from now.

With a console, developers optimize the game for the platform. Sure in 3 years the PC games ported to a PS360 won't look as good but at least we'll be able to play them without dropping more money on updated graphics cards that cost as much as a Wii.

I recently tried to buy some PC games to pass the time, silly me, my computer is a few years old and most new games will not play well on it.

I was always pretty much on the PC side of things since the beginning but I'm changing my mind now. I think from here on out consoles are just hands down better. Will they have the best power and look the prettiest? No of course not they aren't upgradable and the day they make them upgradeable (aside from hard drives and the n64's expansion pack) is the day they are no longer consoles.

Games like Crysis are phenominal and push the envelope for processing and graphic processing power. Coupled with beautiful graphics and awesome physics and AI the games that are made for pc's are quite brilliant, however it's a neverending game of upgrading your pc at least every 1.5 years to keep up. Even if you buy the medium grade technology you're dropping probably a grand a year. I love the games though they are excellent and always tip top notch.

This generation of consoles is speculated to last 8-10 years though and that means that developers can pour a lot of time and money into games that will be fun and games that will work on a tried and true standard platform. 3 months ago I picked up a ps3 and I don't think I'll ever look back. I want to play spore when it comes out so i'll be upgrading for that but otherwise I'm not too interested in dropping the coin. I can go into my living room, sit on the couch, relax a little and play CoD4 which looks just as amazing on a 48" television.

Im an casual gamer and compare this to being a casual trackday rider. That said, would you rather have a $100,000 kit car that you need to build yourself or a $60,000 Elise. Trackdays start in May BTW, and each track you attend has different limitations on what they allow so be prepared to swap crap each weekend.

360 = Elise

Sweet card!
I always played games on PC but you can't keep up with this shit anymore. Newer game you need more power in your graphics and CPU's. Screw that, I'm sticking to the X360 for now. My PC is going to my son, who can play Mario and shit, and I'm going to the dark side, so I'm getting my self new 24" IMAC. No more PC games, at least for know.

ill stick to my pc for mmorpgs and flight simulator but beyond that... ive moved to the 360.

i used to always be about the best video card and cpu to the point of id be upgrading every 1-2 years.

plus when you have friends over, its hard to game with them on the pc. much easier to just pickup controllers and go at it.

Since I am a gamer and have been since the first pc I'll chime in here.

PC gaming has one huge flaw and it has you upgrading more than console machines.

It's called FPS or Frames Per Second. If you play first person shooter games such as Halo, Quake, Doom, Unreal Tourney, America's army...etc. He who has the best video card usually has the upper hand. Been there done that. I remember people bitching to me because I'd snipe them before they even saw me. Then as time goes on and my card gets out dated... I'm the one getting shot in the same manor.

Console games on the other hand... everyone is on a even playing field for the most part. Connection speeds can also play a part in both PC and Consoles.

I gave up competing with guys with $600 video cards. I'll stick with the console purchase every 4-5 years rather than upgrading a PC to compete. And by the way, I have a smoking fast quad core PC with a great video card installed but I'm even going to bother with gaming on it since I have the 360.
