    Hold on... 6670? I thought it was going to be the 6770... may all that is good have mercy on PC gaming over the next 5-10 years.

    console owners that still only rely on consoles for games usually dont bother with high end grapgics anymore.. and graphicwhores such as I, have or will eventually jump ship to custom PC

    Possibly. I'm really considering it. I rarely play anything these days except League of Legends anyway. Yep... a 6900's power used for League of Legends which can run on onboard video.

    :D I lolled. But seriously, it's my 360 that's gathering dust atm. Just CBA with console games in general. PC is a far better platform, well worth the initial investment given the use I get out of it.

    Ditch the consoles and program everything for the PC. Controllers can be made for pc. Have sony ps3 and 360 controller for pc... Use mouse and keyboard for FPS/Strat. the hell with consoles. Nintendo is the only one. and they should even go to PC. Whats the point of having a slower/slow computer you cant upgrade. YAY! :banana::banana:

    Had my vidcards for 3+ years now, still doing good. and i can upgrade as well...why do i want a console? oh yeah Grand turismo...lame...Forza..lame..and fight night....WHY ARE THEY NOT ON A PC?

    And where the hell is killer instinct 3...these are questions that need to be looked into damit. :bang:

    eh. I dont care what they use but they all better be able to do 1080p 60fps 4xAA/AF at min for all games. or I wont even buy another console. As it is I cant bare to being my self to finish the games I have on them cause, my eyes bleed from the lack of 30fps and sub 720p games .

    The computer I have that cost the same about as the ps3 when I bought it has more raw power then the ps3 does and can handle 1080p 4xAA/AF and 60fps is most games. consoles lack all that, and I tired of the ****ty ports pc gets cause console are were all games are made these days, cept for the hand full that are pc only.
    and aLot of those games dont even push pc tech one bit either it only the terrible console ports that push em cause how bad they were optimised and lets not forget that console games tend to cost more then pc counter part, despiste looking worse then the pc verison too.

    I've been there, got bored of games for awhile.

    But there's always something to claw me back,lol.


    Never found the need for a 360. Awful build quality and rrod fisaco proved me correct at the time.

    Was always a pc gamer, but bought a ps3 for a few games that looked the part, and was glad i did.

    PS3 came in handy for alot of things, from streaming from pc to ps3 on other tv. Blu-ray on big tv, Exclusives like uncharted, god of war, motorstorms i enjoyed, and some multiplats.

    Battlefield 3 i bought on PC for the higherend graphics and bigger battles/maps etc/player count.

    Not sure how the next gen of consoles is going to pan out, but hopefully alot more powerful then what i've heard.

    6670 just isn't going to cut it.

    Sony should have kept going with cell for cost(maybe refined it more and added better tools, and added a very very good gpu, KEPLER. Lower end one would have been sweet. and 4gb of ram.

    I won't be buying a 720 either, don't trust ms,lol. and i would never pay for playing a game online, for which i've already payed, that's just taking the piss. xboxlive has too many features i couldn't give a toss about.

    I'll wait it out, and if neither are good enough, i'll leave it this time.

    ever since the cursed ps3 and xbox360 came into the scene the gaming industry hit a stall state , graphics are hardly improving and games developer are not even trying to come up with new original video games ideas due to the retarded console controls , comparing the development of video games prior to current gen consoles and afterwards is truly sad .

    I think the cold reality is that the only reason most pig companies invest big amounts into games is to sell them.

    If the investment levels are much lower and sales are the same they will make more money.

    It's probably some sort of dirty little secret pact between all the big boys including console system devs!

    EDIT: pig was a typo, but I think I'll leave it in, lol

    Totally agree with Jcazz on this. There are some games that should have come to PC anyway.

    I don't trust any of these companies, but, ms is worse than Apple on gaming front. Windows 7 gaming support from ms = yeah right :p
