You are joking, right?

The graphics card alone in my PC has more memory and far more processing power than any console.

The graphics card in my PC is 3 generations old and isn`t even made any more and it wasn`t top of the range even when it was released.

And that`s just the graphics card by itself.

PCs are vastly superior to consoles in hardware terms. A midrange PC could *emulate* a modern console.

Consoles work well enough because they`re running a specialised stripped-down OS with far fewer overheads and games are designed for them and then ported (usually badly) to PCs, but consoles still render images at lower resolution and lower quality.

Consoles are more convenient, though, and the hardware cost is cheaper (but the games are more expensive so cost evens out after a while).

NOT facial recognition. This is motion capture.

Facial recognition would be if you were playing with say an Xbox Kinect and it RECOGNIZED your FACIAL expressions and adjusted the game appropriately.

Cost of console which is also an entertainment system iplayer, dvd rental, internet, blu-ray etc etc (mention because someone said consoles only play games and pc`s can be used for other stuff) The fact you`ll already have decent T.V . Consoles are far more cost effective. True gaming PC systems are sweet but they become outdated far quicker then consoles. They also create problems for developers because they need to make sure its compatible with a multitude of different systems and specs where as they know that a PS£ or XBOX exact specs and how to maximize it.

So for cost, ease of use, durability consoles are good in my opinion

NitroJunkie hahaha the retarded is you, consoles now on sales have a project that is at lest 6 or more years old. A PC quad core with a 1,5 gh graphic card,6 giga ram is much more powerfull respect toys consoles. You say consoles are powerfull just cause developper create games dedicated to consoles but you can`t immagine what they can do if they decide to exploit at maximum a PC. In any case games for consoles are created using PC. XD

the point is
1. the amazing 3D power that we can created in games.
2. to play the detective not watch a detective solve a case...

PC >>>>>>> Console for gaming experience such as sound, image quality and controll
console > PC for price to pay for a good enough gaming experience but not by much...

One thing thats always kinda put me off in games is the acting. Sure the voicings great but the lack of emotion in the faces was always a let down. This, on the other hand, looks amazing. Watching a character squrim and fret and making decisions on their expressions is gonna be a nice touch. The last game that made me genuinely feel for a character was Ethan Mars in PS3 game Heavy Rain.
I dont think I would rush out to buy this game as it does seem a bit slow, I would definitely hire it for a week from Blockbuster.

IshiiDaFishy try Combat Arms is quite good and i think your pc can run it without problem, all mmo are done to attract the major number of configurations possibles. In any case i`m not a PC geek and i don`t have to much money to spend on it, but i`m pretty sure that my 2 years pc is much more powerfull of any console in commerce now.What i want to say is that i would like my machine exploited to limit and not just running some game done for a console that is half the power of what i have. Think also that the cost of 2 or 3 console games allow you to buy a new graphic card or more ram for example.

@piperfawn

I`m a PC guy myself, but in reality, not everyone has the funds to be constanly upgrading their system. When, in the course of three years, you have to spend about 1500 bucks to replace every component of your computer, piece by piece, it really starts to add up.

Which is also why I stick to COunterStrike. There isn`t any PC that CAN`T run that, nowadays. :)

Well i`m talking about PC.....the one i`m using rigt now XD. So this mean i allready have a monitor a keyboard and a mouse.All that i need is a better graphic card, also if mine is allready much more powerfull respect all graphic cards in consoles actually in commerce.My cpu is like 4x more powerfull than every console nowaday. And my pc is 2 years old. If games developpers really start to exploit the power of actual PC ,consoles will die in 1 minute.All is question of marketing. Producing games for consoles only give more profit, but bind us all to an ancient form of entertainment. When a console exit on sale is allready old like my grandmother.

Are you gonna factor in the cost of a TV for the console setup? What about all the other stuff a PC can do that a console can`t?

Only case where I agree with you is if you don`t have a gaming computer and already have a TV, which is the case for many people.

@piper:

A console is still the most cost effective way to play games.

A PC is just too expensive. They are 5-6 years old but to replicate the graphics of the 360 or PS3, you STILL have to spend more than 500-600 bucks building a PC, and that`s just the box. That doesn`t include monitor, keyboard/mouse, speakers, etc.

And yep Skythe seem the Rockstar games is creating games just for consoles. Also Red Dead Redemption is console only. I think is cause of piracy but is a shame cause nowaday the most powerfull game machine is allways a PC. XBOX and PS3 are allready to old,they can`t compete at all with a new PC.

love the technology, too bad I`m not interested in the game.

also, startech is right. I was hoping this would have something to do with the kinect and being able to recognize you in game, or create a character based on your likeness.

That`s pretty awesome.

Also it`s awesome that Hal Landon Jr. is in it. (Ted Theodore Logans dad in Bill and Ted`s Excellent/Bogus Adventure) or at least it looks like him. 3:28
