You only have to look as far as the GPU accelerator companies to see who is still in charge. Right now the console companies come begging to ATI or Nvidia to make them their console GPU's--or in the PS3's case to use an almost "stock" older PC part for their GPU. (sony tried to make their one Cell based GPU and failed miserably) Both ATI and Nvidia make way more money on their PC gpu's than their console gpu's. PC's are in charge of hardware and consoles are desperatlely playing catch up. 2-3 years from now your PS3 games are going to look retro compared to PC games. Hell I'd say they already do look retro. All those jaggies, low res textures, and low res period. Crytek just laughed when someone asked them if their engine would work for consoles. Sure they will make a port for you guys but it will be with fugly textures, lower polys, and load times that will make u want to rip out your bluray drive. You guys honestly think PC gaming will die? PC games existed before GPU's, cdroms, dvds, soundcards. Things are only looking brighter for PC games. Consoles catching up to PC's again is probably one of the best things that could happen to PC gamers. It's only going to bring more gamers into the market and more gaming companies. If idsoft and epic can no longer handle the competition in the PC market and want to make watered down shallow console games I could care less. Idsoft and epic haven't been doing anything great for PC gamers. UT2003...oh wait we shipped it unfinished. ..lets finish it up and release it at full price as UT2004. Doom3? another game i bought. Single player game was repetitive(yay zombie closets) and boring and multiplay was a joke. They really dropped the ball. The real irony is making PS3 games is WAY more expensive than making PC games. Several Japanese game companies have bitched about this already. And do they look any better than a PC game? From the screenshots of MGS i'd say definitely not. Anyways to wrap up this...i've heard the prediction of the death to PC gaming every single console launch. Hasn't happened yet. Keep trying. Glad you guys are getting some okay looking titles. Hope they start turning on FSAA and aniso for your poor eyes.
