Really? See your nearest optometrist.

Game consoles are not capable of outputting the graphics quality which even a mid-range PC can. Consoles may be fine for the masses but anyone wishing to experience a better gameplay cannot do so with a console.

Well....to be honest, developers have squeezed an amazing amount of graphics out of the current consoles. Even now, I struggle to find a PC game that can match the graphics quality in Killzone 3.

There is a big difference between PC and console developers though: PC devs can be lazy since they have huge hardware specs to play with. Console devs on the other hand have to squeeze everything they can out of limited hardware. That's why console games can look so good these days.

Not to mention that most of these games are only 480p and up coverted to 1080p rather then natively done at 1080p, which requires a lot more horsepower as well. I believe there are only a hand full of native 720p games, which again are up converted to 1080p and claimed to be as such.

isn't it amazing what well done and programmed correctly anti-aliasing can do to converts?

I'm not blasting consoles, but it is true. The massive quantity of differing hardware actually limits the PC gaming experience.

My optometrist says my eyes are perfect. Thanks for caring ^^

Maybe I'm just not as picky as you guys. I don't need my computer to crank everything at max or near max.
