Not really. Bethesda did admit it was their botch job, not Sony's (or the PS3's).

I thought they said, it was cause ps3, didn't have enough ram?
Its whatever God says it is, try not to let Satan trick you or lie to you. A lie can be twisted so much but its still a lie, same with tricks. Also know noone is perfect except Jesus, we all will mess up from time to time. So try not to be, to hard on yourself or others.

Re: PC vs Consoles, What do you think?

You're 1k rig from 4-5 years ago is as outdated as the current gen consoles. PC hardware evolves much more rapidly than console hardware. My $600 60 Gig launch PS3 lasted 6 years. I've been running 12 slim PS3's for the last 3 years, along with 16 PC's, and 10 360's even a few wii's snuck in.

 

The only things I have that haven't had hardware failures are the Slim PS3's and the wii's.  We aren't talking normal use, 1,000's of hours, marathons of 12 to 60 hours straight up time, again it isn't the performace that a lot of us are looking at.

 

Downtime costs big time.

 

For the regular everyday video game player I say play what you like and what you can afford. If that's PS3 awesome, if that's PC awesome, console, and soon ouya, steambox, tablet, cell phone, whatever you want. Who are we to decide what's right for someone else to like?

This is the first time I've heard this argument.

The PS3 has the same amount of ram as the Xbox 360 both have 512 MB!

The only difference is the 360 uses shared ram while the PS3 uses dedicated ram. 

Also about the PS3 being weaker than the 360 is not true.

Yes the dedicated ram on the PS3 was a mistake, but if developers worked properly they can easily overcome this minor problem.

The GPU on the PS3 is a little weaker than the one the 360 has, but the PS3 easily overcomes this because of the Cell BE.

The CPU - This is where it turns in the PS3's favor, the CPU in the the PS3 outperforms the CPU in the 360 and the beauty of the Cell is that it acts more like an APU than a CPU, so it handle graphics just like the GPU. That's why the PS3 has games that look like Uncharted, God of War, The Last of Us because of the Cell.

They didn't upgrade the hardware in ps3, and its better then that I know. Maybe not ps4? Remember this song, I feel like a woman. Lol, that is hilarious, when a guy likes that song. I don't but I know a guy that does.

I prefer consoles.  PCs are too expensive and there's too much work involved in playing games.  I own an iMac that I use for work and surfing the internet.  I like my PS3 because I can buy any PS3 game and just put it in and play.  Easy.

Thank you for your valuable input, I know every game I put in console downloads to hard drive for ps3. Then has a patch same as PC gaming.

PCs will always be more powerful than consoles. That's established I think. Consoles on the other hand are more portable, standardized and less likely to crash because you happen to be looking at strong pornography on them. Still if asked which one will be around longer for gaming purposes I'd have to go with PC.

People generally say that PCs are better than consoles, but you can really rack up a hefty price tag getting all the right parts to get the best quality out of it.

However, if you have that money to spend, you can get one great piece of gaming hardware out of it. Of course, you'll miss out on console exclusives, but you can do a lot of cool things with a powerful PC.

I own my PS3 for the sole reason of console exlusives. Any multi plats, go PC. On multi plats a PC will destroy consoles, with maybe the exception of Third person shooter games such as Tomb Raider. Having a gaming PC you'll find that you'll want to buy PC copies more often because they are better. Why not have both? If you save up you can either build your own or buy one that is already built. Having both a gaming PC and a PS3 is my ultimate setup. Amazing PS3 exclusives, and the best looking/ smoothest running multi platform version. Win/Win
