View Full Version : Ruse for ps3 or PC which one should I get??

Hello everyone, new to the fourms.

I recently tried the 2 open beta along with the demo for PC and I enjoyed playing it a lot.
The thing is I have PC and PS3, i can ruse ruse on my PC on very low graphics with no lag and the honest truth it doesn't bug me much or I can get in on ps3 and get better graphics but get crappy contols and lose hotkeys.

Now the thing is I have seen many reviews of people getting ****ed off about the unit cap ( how many units you can have?) and the amount of lag

So if it were up to you which one would you buy it for considering my computer,

pc ps3
- graphics bad good
- controls good bad
- online users ? ?
- building cap ? ?
- max players 8 ?
- unit cap ? ?
- online lag ? ?
- game issues ? ?

If you can fill anything in the above chart I would greatly apreciate it, it looks like a good game but things aren't always what they seem

For PC
graphics best
controls best
online users good
building cap none
max players 8
unit cap none
online lag 75% chance of a good lag free game
game issues minor crashes due to hardware problems other than that perfect

PS3 (from what i here)
graphics good
controls unless you have move a teeny weeny harder
online users ok
building cap yes
max players 4
unit cap 60 units
online lag seems alright although minor faults
game issues not from what ive heard

go PC http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif thats my advice, more freedom. no caps and up to 8 players

Don't you get their evil plans? They made an evil...erm er DRM so that steam seem like a lesser of the two evil, then once everyone turns in to sheep then we will all forget what it is like to have freedom. Say you have a big family your a gaming family and you buy a game with steam or something with similiar restriction like BFBC2(for ps3 this time but still the same boat)(I mention this because it happen to a friend) you get a one time activation code for the game. Bam it you ever want to give the game to your lil bros but still want to keep your steam acc then you have to buy another copy. BAM with bc, friend have to chuck out another 15$ because his bro had the VIP access and he didn't and he couldn't play on his account with me and he also wants the trophy and his own. DRM are evil to the core in any form, all steam should be is an update site and a place where you can buy DLC or dl games. Screw activation code and ****, if a game is really good then people can decide for themselve, should I pirate a good game or buy it to support the company in hope that they will make more games like this.

With that said, I was leaning toward buying the ps3 after playing the demo but decide to go for the pc because thats just the root of RTS...it feels weird to do other wise.
