Resident Evil is mostly pre-rendered. but graphics on a console can beat graphics on a PC sometimes but not consistantly , e.g. Halo, actual bump mapping and huge landscapes, what PC fps game has bump mapping? l
Look at metroid prime! it looks awesome. but those are just looks and consoles have the advantage of all having the same spec therefore better graphics can be achieved by the programmer knowing that the game is going to be be played by 1 set configurations and not the thousands of diffrent configurations of the PC. same goes for mac's.
BTW, i only own a PC, no consoles.
