What PC settings are equivalent to consoles?

#1 Posted by TatoBins (82 posts) -

Anyone know what graphics settings on PC are roughly equivalent to what you'll get on consoles? I'm trying to figure out if my computer is going to look any better (it's not a very fast machine), or if I should just get the game for my PS3.

I'd bet on Medium settings @ 1280x720.

Medium and low settings, dx9, and 1280x720.

Don't forget the setting that causes framerates to drop into single digits periodically.

I would go between medium and low with no AA, also you can change the settings to potato and you will get a Will

I'm pretty sure the game has some MSAA implementation. At least acording to Digital Foundry.

This. The consoles can't do DX-11 officially though they can do some DX-11 techniques.

I stand by my comment!

I'd lean more towards low than medium... I'm running fully on low on my rig and it still looks on par/maybe better than the console version. Plus higher resolution.
