So a PlayStation fansite has an article about how the PS3 has the better games? Quelle surprise!

But seriously, they talk about how the current consoles are in their twilight years and yet go on about how the new PS3 exclusives look "stunning". There's nothing "stunning" about games with low resolution textures running at sub-720p resolutions. PC games run at resolutions 4x that for single monitors and 7x that in multi-monitor configs, as well as dramatically higher texture quality, rendering detail and polygon count (tessellation).

They do look stunning for the platform the games are made for, and those higher resolutions don't really mean anything when you're doing your gaming on a TV anyway.

Of course PC games look better, but it's kind of beside the point. Those games they're talking about do look great, and despite it being a PS3 fansite...they're actually right in the article. The Last of Us and Beyond are interesting and different titles (the kind of which we never really see as PC exclusives anymore, incidentally) compared to the biggest upcoming 360 titles being just more of the same catered to the shooter crowd.

You can't knock a PS3 for being a PS3 or a 360 for the same when they're still damn good for what they are. It's like complaining about a '68 Mustang because it doesn't have the features of a 2012.
