I play it on PC.


It is not as taxing as some people say.


My card was rated to play it at midrange but I can play it at max everything with no lag.

Don't have the game yet, but when I do get it, it'll be for 360 (When I get the 360).

When I do get it,  it'll be for the Xbox 360 because I like the fact that it just plays in a guarenteed level of quality.  They both look pretty equal anyway,  I don't want to over stress my PC,  it would run at a low framerate with all settings up.  Yeah I have a powerful machine,  but a 360 would be my best bet,  for my personal situation.

i would choose any first person shooter over its replica PC version any time.  the feel for console first person shooters is personally so much better than PC.

Once I have my new gaming rig up and ready to go, I'll get Oblivion for the PC.

I prefer playing almost anything on a console.  I had Morrowind, on both the PC and Xbox, and far prefered the Xbox version, so the choice was pretty obvious for me.  Controls are great, the game looks fine, don't need to worry about buying any new parts or anything, it's just much easier.  And of course, I love the achievements, I never would have bothered joining half the guilds if it wasn't for those, they really help you to explore more of a game, I just wish some developers would be more imaginitive with them.

But it really just comes down to personal preference, some people are going to prefer consoles, and others will only like PC's.

I have an ATI Radeon card and I have been having a lot of issues with my 3-D games (Everquest II and WOW) they keep blowing up and it has to do with the drivers on the video card.  I think I need to roll back the drivers and use ones that actually work.

With a console you don't have to worry about that as it is all built in and you don't have to fine tune. 

I got Oblivion for the 360.  I played a little bit of it but with my job I've been so tired lately that I haven't had the urge to play any games.  This weekend I will get into and play it for a good while.

I also have Ghost Recon and would like to play online so any of you out there look for Lazerbyte.  Yeah I don't have a lot of achiements but you try working in accounting full time and having pets and such and trying to have the UBER achiements or everything unlocked on Oblivion :)

My gamer tag is Lazerbyte.


Thank you, as you have just been Lazered

Xbox 360! (When I get it tommorow :D)  Can't wait! I could either spend 1000+ on an amazing gaming rig, or 300 on a 360 core with card, 2 controllers + Oblivion + Perfect Dark Zero. Hmmm, which one to choose ;) So yeah, 360.

Of course I got mine for the 360, See my avatar? I'm a mac user, but I guess that's a different story now that you can run Windows natively using boot camp.

But I woud have got for the 360 even if I did have a PC, I don't like having to fret over graphicall settings and stuff like that, and heck, even the 360 can't handle it in some places, I can't imagine many PCs doing better.

Having seen the tidal wave of plugins for the game, I decided to get it on PC.  Unlike some other games Battlefield 2 that I've gotten, the game actually runs if your computer meets the minimum specs.
