Graphically speaking would these two be equal or is the pc version more like a ps2 or xbox . or would the 360 get a higher res version?

I think the 360 version is the best looking out of all the Platforms. The PC can be as good as the XBOX360 but u have to have a really good computer i suspect. If u dont, on the PC, u can get like XBOX graphic. but yeah graphically, the 360 is the best. altho it really does boil down to personal prefernce on how u like the charatcer model and enviorments.

I highly doubt that eidos has used the 360's 6 thread capability probably more like 2 or 3 but with this in mind the pc version is better assuming you pc is semi-descent

but strickly resolution the pc kicks ass 1080i is like standard on my desktop. so it all comes down to if you pc is descent or not a good determiner is if your graphics cards has pixel shader 3 because thats all that really matters in desiding pc or 360

Maggotbrain: i cant believe your asking us that with a system like that :eek: , but umm yep itll be able to play it, and display better than the 360 version for definate :cool:

i know ur PC can play TR with 360 graphics. i said u just need a good computer. but 360 does have the best graphics. there no point in arguing that.

I agree with oxygenuk, with the right graphics card(s) the PC would look better. However, the XBOX360 certainly packs a punch. There's no chance I'll be playing TRL at 1080i resolution (1920 x 1080) on my PC, even with my 7800GT.

Obviously PC is better...XBOX360 is gonna get old in a year, but you can upgrade your PC with the best graphics cards anytime!!

PC is the best period!

The 360 version will look pretty amazing, as the code has been optimised for its fixed spec. The PC version will be capable of running at a higher resolution, but I doubt most PC gamers will be playing in widescreen, or in the comfort of their living room in a social setting. Consoles always win in that respect.

I don't know about that. I have a widescreen on my PC, and I absolutely hate playing games with other people talking in a social setting. What's the point of playing if I can't hear any of the dialogue? If you want to play the game, play the game. If you want to talk, then talk. Trying to mix the two doesn't work for me.
