thats definitly just your opinion and not fact. Tell that to the 11+ million people around the world that still play the 8 year old game.

You can knock Vivindi/Blizzard all you want but the fact is, they have made a masterpiece of a game that will set the standards for MMO's for years to come.

Yeah, I know it's opinion. I just don't know what's so awesome about grinding all day and clicking once to move around or perform an entire attack on someone. Not only that. The menus for doing simple tasks make my head spin.

I'm still on my original Aug 2006 model 360... It's probably only lasted this long since I don't use it

However it did outlive one of my 4890's

Yes, but can it run Crysis?
This is a mute point. Consoles have exclusives too.
True, but i think he was pointing out that there are some PC games that consoles cant run because of hardware or some other restrictions. If that were to be true, Crysis (also known as the computer killer lol) would be a prime example. Kinda makes ya wonder why a popular shooter like crysis never did make it to console.

I was reading an interesting article on Ars Technica about the Xbox 360 using DX9, and that it can't be upgraded. The article said that games can use pseudo-DX10 effects, but cannot be entirely upgraded

Well I'm on my phone but here's another article about it:

Xbox 360 can't run DirectX 10, confirms ATI -- Joystiq

PCs allow upgrades. Consoles that are outdated are completely replaced.

That is interesting, i wonder what the ps3 equivalant is, if its any better.

I think as far as graphics go, when consoles first come out they are usually state of the art machines. But because computer hardware and technology evolves so fast, they become "not so state of the art" fairly quik. And i read somewhere that microsoft plans to stick with the 360 till 2015!!! I hope thats not true as it would be badly outdated by that time.

Well, the 360 has been out for nearly 5 years now...it was released in November of 2005. I've certainly completely replaced my PC during that 5 year interval of time. Have u?

No they can't. The GPU isn't fully DX10 compliant, hence the reason most non-exclusive PC titles are still primarily DX9 based.

That's one of the biggest reasons DX10 was a flop. There was no real monetary incentive for developers to code for DX10 when the majority of sales comes from consoles, not PC games.

By the time DX11 will be the console standard norm, DX12 will probably be making an appearance.

Honestly, what's the purpose of the thread? This is a Windows 7 forum. PC is going to be favored. I think you would get a better pool of people if this were done in a developer forum such as EA.
