13. Re: Xbox 360 Excitement Approaches... Nov 13, 2005, 10:34 Geese
Someone was playing the CoD2 demo. I watched and thought ... damn, my PC does better effects and it's just an OK system

Really? What system are you running? I'd like to know what 'OK' system you have runs COD2 at 1280x720 resolution at a better framerate than the 360. Keep in mind the 360 is $399. And for that matter, the $299 sans-harddrive system could run it as well.

I just find that an interesting comment that your PC does better effects. I have a P4 3.2ghz with a Geforce 6800GT 256MB system. I don't recall the COD2 demo on my PC having ANY better effects than the 360 version.

EDIT - However, I agree that PC gaming isn't in danger of going away any time soon. PC gaming will always have the edge in technology advances, and more versatile input devices. That all comes at a price. Consoles will always offer an experience less than that of PCs (in some areas), but at a MUCH cheaper cost. It's good that we have the choice of which way to go...or go both ways by being a console and PC gamer.
