    I remember playing Assassins Creed 2 on PC, then after i finished it i came to my friend to see it on Xbox 360.

    Game looked like crap compared to PC version, but after few months i saw PS3 version…It was even worse then the 360 version:

    Strange popups… Map loads (on 360, PS3), horrible frame rate from 22-29 fps with bad textures, lightning, simple BLOOM effects… Blah.. 60 bucks for that? Crazy. :3

    @3 Of course it’s not hardware hungry. Almost any console port is not hardware hungry…

    I didn’t play it on the PC but i thought it looked great on the Xbox, and Brotherhood looks even better… You shouldn’t really compare the two, PC gaming is for graphics connoisseurs, but most console gamers couldn’t care less, i mean, how much do you expect them to be able to squeeze out of a 5 year old machine? The fact the 360 can still hold it’s own atall is nothing short of a miracle… Games like AC : Brotherhood, Dead Space 2, LA Noire etc, are fantastic achievments given the limitations of the 360 hardware as it stands today. I gave up upgrading my PC years ago, mainly because i realised i got more addicted to getting games running with higher and higher settings not actually enjoying them for the gaming experience alone

    @5, but they are bad ports so it’s a bad example, i had problems with Saints Row 2 at that time (but it was crap anyway) and with GTA 4 i had no problems with my rig but a lot of people really had the issue with lame frame rate. But that also because of not the best engine Rockstar used. Same shit on PS3, but on the Xbox 360? It was fine.

    @6. Xbox 360 holds nothing. Games just being developed for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Revolution in graphics and capabilities slowed down a LOT compared to last generation. all games being in development specifically for consoles and not for PC in most cases.

    But PC is not always for graphics connoisseurs. PC is for solid experience. Assassins Creed 2 is not hardware hungry and with the same console price you can have the same game that will run smoother and better (also games are cheaper). Thats how it is.

    Graphics have been held up a bit your right, i certainly did not expect this generation (especially the 360 and Wii) to be able to last so long. This is why i never understand PS3 users stating that the graphics are so much better than the 360′s… It’s a futile arguement because although games like Killzone, GOW 3 & Uncharted look better than most 360 exclusives, they still pale in comparison to a mid to high range PC. PS3 graphics are so marginally better, it’s not even worth discussing. I suppose my main gripe with PC gaming was the fact that each game practically required a slight upgrade to the hardware and a new graphics card almost every year was required to max out games and enjoy them fully. Not playing a PC game maxed out almost felt annoying as you’d already spent so much yet your hardware was still holding you back… Maybe thats changed now, but for cost to gameplay ratio, i think the console still holds it’s own… Especially with services like XBLA offering so many cheap unique indie games at the moment :)

    @Monkey, can’t argue with you. I agree with your opinion.

    I just want to say that for this generation you don’t need to upgrade much your PC compared to the last where you always need a beefy machine at some point.

    How much would i need to spend to get a PC i could run through my TV (Samsung) that would play something like Crysis on max settings and be fairly future proof? My machine is creaking so badly now, i was thinking of upgrading soon anyway! :)

    I remember playing Assassins Creed 2 on Ps3, then after i finished it i came to my noob friend to see it on PC.
    and guess what AC2 failed to run PC his PC why because ubisoft servers were
    down.
    and then again i went to another idiot PC noob even Ac2 failed to run on his PC why because it does not support 5500 series.
    Inspite of being a PC game it failed to run on PC

    Good to see the PC version getting a bit of love. Especially after they bothered to include DX10 on AC1 but ditched it on AC2. And the fact that 1920×1200 isn’t a selectable aspect ratio for my 16:10 monitor so I get black bars at top’n'bottom of my screen :( apart from that AC2 runs like a fukken dream tho and looks the business.
    day one purchase for me
