This is why some people stick with console gaming instead of PC gaming. The PS3 has been out for how many years now? All games run on it just fine and have pretty much the same graphic quality as their PC counterparts. Maybe I'll ditch PC gaming and live solely off my PS3. Not like I game much anymore :whistle:

Haha really??!! You wish!
I've had a PS3 for 2 years, and literally EVERY game I've played on both the PC and PS3, there's almost nothing to compare. From graphics and yes, gameplay smoothness point of view.

yeah, those are some pretty intense specs. Just hope that Skyrim isnt that demanding. But 20GBs... these games are getting obscenely big, my ISP really hates me already.

Though in all honesty the only thing I'm actually lacking from those is the current gen graphics card, I'm still slumming it on a 4890 which is serving me well

The quality of the PS3 is nothing like that of a high, or even mid range PC. Although, if you do not game a lot, then consoles are a better option. Still, the PC has:

- Above 720p, for most gamers
- Above 30 fps (cap of many console games)
- More flexibility
- Better pricing for games (Most are $50 rather than $60, there are exceptions though)
- STEAM SALES - When was the last time you could get a 6 month old game for $5 new for a console!

Play against a PC player in multi player and I'm sure you'll be saying the same thing. Oh wait, 99% of the games out there don't allow that due to the PC's control scheme granting a massive advantage. Whoops...

I don't know about you guys, but I sit at least 3 metres away from the TV when I play on my PS3. Can't really tell the difference between PC and PS3 graphic quality.

Uhh, these are the "recommended" specs.... not the minimum specs.

It'll run on your machine just fine, just won't have all the eye candy. And it'll still look better than PS3 or XBOX360
