I tried to resist...really I did...

First my best mate bought one with my first favourite game of PGR3...then David Olive from Westnet (favourite ISP!) emails me gushing about his 360 and how awesome Ghost Recon is with the Live integration...which just happens to be one of my other favourite games...and well...I could'nt hold out any longer...

So now I have to agree and after downloading the Battlefield 2 demo game Im totally hooked. Graphically, performance and online integration wise its fantastic!

  • Good job Michael :)

  • That's interesting because in the PC world Battlefield 2 is considered mediocre as far as visuals are concerned.
    Gameplay is where its real strengths are.

    With DX10 on the horizon there's no way I'd lock myself into the 360 architecture - even if it does have a decent performance/price ratio at the moment.

    Consoles? I don't use appliances. :>

  • Each to their own EvEm_Relic. :)
    Have you seen Battlefield 2 in HDTV on XBOX 360 yet?

  • No, I can't say that I have.
    Not that high res is anything new and exciting.
    But its not really about what game is out at any point in time - there have been plenty of excellent titles released for PC recently.
    My point is that PC gaming evolves so you have many more choices depending on you want to get out of it (and your budget!).
    Why limit yourself to something that looks good to you now?

    Just one example:

  • I think we're probably agreed on the fact that the PC is more modular and has the ability to stay in front of console hardware...assuming you have the cash to buy the latest video card etc...Which I dont...:)
    Given though that the XBOX 360 has 3 PowerPC procs and a great video card and optimised for gaming - its pretty powerful for what I want for quite a while later too :)

  • Don't tell me you didn't shell out for a big screen TV...

  • Already had one :) BTW - I bought Battlefield 2 on the weekend. Its awesome... :)
