Has anyone played both demo's? If so, than can you please tell if you've spotted any differences?

I can't play both, because my PC won't run the game :(

Looks pretty identical to me. Only difference is bigger native resolution on pc,
but that depends on the hardware I guess.

I didn't have any technical problems at all.

Just played the pc demo, i'm hoping the only difference is the resolution that u can play it on.

The 360 is a powerful machine, i don't think the pc is better.

Not in anything elase other than the graphics - they are all so more detailed. Lara glistens when out of water - her face is more detailed in game - the skin texture is a lot smoother and you can see the dirt clearer... the way the environment is so lush.... it's destinctlybetter than the XB version.

Oh - and her boobs jiggle.
Lol.

PC version can sport a higher resolution, higher resolution "uncompressed" textures (though this relies more on the developer, there are some tricks you can do on the PC to increase texture quality in regards to the LOD bias, etc), better Anti-Aliasing (16xQ, 6xS, etc.), better texture filtering (8x,16x Antistrophic Filters ... most graphics cards these days can pull off both of these with little hit to performance), higher native resolution along with a wider variety, better sound (<3 my Auzentech X-FI Prelude with Dolby Digital Live, upmixing and what not! heh) and yes if you have a decent PC you can hook it up to an HDTV :D

But I'm not looking to start a PC vs Xbox pissing contest, just pointing out a 360 is not the better "if you've got the cash to spend". But for the average teenage gamer, yes they'd probably get a better deal going with the 360 version (but it's not necessarily the best version depending on budget .. and no my PC didn't cost me thousands of dollars! heh).
