I'm a PC kinda guy; Although I do play games on Xbox also.

I play PC because I have no other choice!
But if I had an Xbox, I'd play that quite a bit.

I'm an xbox gamer, but I am going to get pc as well. There's nothing like an xbox's graphics! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

What I mean is that the Xbox's graphics during it's lifetime was very similar to that of PC's. Maybe lagging a little behind, though.

I think that now, the PC can handle better graphics then the Xbox.

Yeah, the PC can handle better graphics, but that doesn't mean the PC experience is always better.

Your typical TV runs in 640x480 resolution. The newest video card for a PC, the 7800GTX, can run just about any game in existance on 1600x1200 resolution, with all graphical settings maxxed out. A top line PC will look so much better than an Xbox it's not even a contest. However, since you usually sit about 18 inches away from a monitor and considerably farther away from your TV, the difference becomes a lot less noticable. Not to mention the fact that a computer that's capable of running at those settings will cost at least 10 times as much as an Xbox. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Meh, keyboard and mouse is the way to go for FPS'es and RTS'es.

And as far as graphics go, the PC wins hands down. Just look at project offset (http://projectoffset.com/technology.html) or Unreal Tournament 2007 (Actual Screenshot) (http://media.pc.ign.com/media/746/746632/img_2773439.html)

If I had to choose one, I'd choose Xbox. I like PC too though. F.E.A.R. isn't coming out for Xbox.

Why are you posting in the splinter cell forums if you don't have the game? Not to be rude or anything, I would just like to know. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

You'd be surprised how many of the old regulars .. the ones who made this place a fun place once upon a time ... never played, or strongly disliked Splinter Cell.

It's called the OT forum for a reason, after all http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I think Nj did that with every game. He hated it at first, but came to like it after he played it for a while. The only one I can think of that he probably liked right off was the Hidden & Dangerous games.
