you cant use pc hardware to it's fullest because no pc is the same. So they can't code pc games to be efficient.the a Nvidia 6200 could handle oblivion at max if they made the game specifically for that card, but in reality that card can barely handle it at low.
But all ps3's are the exact same, so even if the ps3 was 1/3 the power of the 8800gtx it would be able to have graphics at least slightly better than that card would handle.

but ps3 is close to the 8800gtx and it WILL have much better graphics than that card will handle.


PS3 close to the 8800GTX is a laugh, it was below the 7900GTX and 8800GTX is a huge jump forward form the 7900GTX, so specs wise the 8800GTX is so much more powerful. Coding does matter but remember those companies who code for console games also code for the PC games. They want to make more money so you will see more games on multi system inculding pcs.

Lol, Quadcore and 2 880GTX would cost you like 3 grand.


so? Some people do have the cash to lay down.


No point in comparing technology that costs $1000 to technology that costs $3000.


But it proves that pc are more powerful then console, we didn't say cost difference before.


Yep, some people just won't admit it.

i need to agree with otto for a second, if u can utilize the RSX in such a way, u can get alot out of it. I mean look at Gran Turismo 4 for the PS2, that is as best as it can get for that system, and i wouldnt be to surprised it they utilized the system 100%.
BUTTTTTTTT, im not agreeing that the PS3 well surpass any PC game for 5 years... i still think the PC is way better.

5 years from now? Meh, I think they can do something before then, but PC graphics right now aren't that much better than a PS3's graphics. I don't really like most PC games anyway. One because of the controls, and another being that most PC games that are released just don't appeal to me. I do like the shooters though.


My observation has purpose, hence I am here.

i dont think so, cuz pc's are always updated, but a console is updated maybe every 5 years

pretend ps3 is ps2, pretend the 8800gtx is whatever card came out at the same time as the ps2.

Now compare a game that had really amazing graphics for it's time (unreal tournament)
compare that game to BLACK for the ps2, let see any computer from 1999-2002 handle a game that looks like that.


now replace BLACK with an ps3 game that comes out that uses ps3 to it's utter max.
replace ps2 with ps3
replace graphics card from 2000 with graphics card from this year.
replace unreal tournament with crysis

Why don't you compare graphics for computers when Black came out vs the graphics of Black for the ps2? Console will be beating graphics for short amount time but eventaully the computer will beat it. Coding changes overtime and it will affect both computers and console.
