Who will be the powerhouse in hardware? I beleive 720 will be hands down. It is said to use a custome built Bulldozer CPU and will be custome AMD/ATI GPU in combo with the Bulldozer should make for a great combo for graphics. Sony has said they are going cheaper next gen and not gointg to rely so much on the best most expensive hardware. Not to say PS4 will not have comparible graphics and both 720 and PS4 will have a lot of the same games. I just think the 720>>>PS4 for all out brute power especialy being it will be running a Bulldozer CPU this is the best news thus far for 720.

Dude the cell processor is way more powerful than any consumer CPU. Check yo' facts son.

Bulldozer will >>> Cell

I think he was being sarcastic... At least, I hope so.

And yes, speculation at this point is pointless. We have more info to go on regarding the Wii U and even that's an unknown at this point despite already having been unveiled.

Dude, really? That's like...super way better than I expected. Fair play to super giant games. I honestly wasn't expecting the PC version out until december.

Was expecting late this month or early next to be honest so happy about that. Same date as From Dust. I'll be busy that weekend it seems....

@Vitor:

Wasn't bagging you or your question, just idiots giving PC users like ourselves a bad name by referring to this minor issue as a "goddamn crime against PC gamers".

My bad, sorry to have assumed the worst! Still, pretty sure every response to this thread up until that point had been sarcastic though so you can see why I jumped to that conclusion...

I think I read somewhere that the resolution is tied to your desktop resolution. So whatever your desktop res is, that will be the resolution that displays in-game. It's a pretty weird way of doing it.

Hadn't heard anything like that until now - weird but I guess that works. Thanks for the info!

This is a goddamn crime against PC gamers. I haven't been this enraged since Bad Company 2 launched without a "toggle crouch" option. If I still had my 16:10 monitor, I might of sent someone a very angry letter.

It really is though. How fucking long does it take to add in some resolution options? That's like a day of work, at most, right?

Fucking aye, this is the single worst thing to EVER HAPPEN!!! it's an Indy game made by a small staff missing a minor option. Perspective.

Just chill of and enjoy the game. Sometimes pc gamers get so cought up in graphics and resolutions that they just forget to play the fuckin' games!

Like Tim_the_Corsair said it's an indy game, an extremely well made and well designed indy game for that matter, but still an indy game. Just be glad that you even get to experience this amazing game.

Did any of you guys actually read my post before launching into the PC-elitist bashing I kinda feared this question would elicit? I'm not that bummed out - the game looks and plays great (although I feel like I've had most of the surprise lost due to hearing so much about it on the GB GOTY awards and thus, a little of the luster but that's beside the point).

I don't care if I can change the resolution - as I said, I doubt it benefits too much from looking extra sharp and might even degrade the art style. I just want to know WHICH resolution it's picked as games can be weird when it comes to mobile GPUS and default to odd settings.

I miss him being the XBox E3 press conference guy. He has so much charisma. Everyone since has had the stage presence of a wet noodle. Jeff "I KNOW I HEARD A SHOUT-OUT FOR GOLDEN AXE!" Bell, especially. The latest guy is also dorky as fuck.

I think Don Mattrick is alright - about as generically charming a spokesman they could have but good enough. Moore outshines him on stage every year though. Great speaker and, with him and Riccitiello, I feel like EA has come a looooooooong way from the company they used to be.

More Moore is never a bad thing - guy has the best stage presence at E3 every year. Loved the way he handled the celebrity nonsense they inevitably have to do for their sports franchises.

This is really started to irritate me.

I am currently trying to apprehend Leroy Sabo. The game gives the illusion that you can hold the charge down for the warning shot, but things like preprogrammed cars getting in the way and Leroy running faster than an olympic sprinter makes this impossible.
This eventually leads to one of these all too common hostage situations, which have no result other than kill or failure. You can shoot the gun out of their hand, but not before they shoot the hostage. I have been thoroughly testing this. Satisfaction to me, playing as an officer of the law, is putting the guilty behind bars, not seeing how many of their dead bodies I can be responsible for by game's end.

Felt the same way. Also sort of expected that mission to change more depending on where you went to first. Played it through twice and was disappointed that no such thing happened. One of the few cases where I felt like I knew more than Cole did - seemed pretty obvious to me what had happened but it takes Cole a while to catch up.

Is there a windowed mode? usually like playing native resolution without upscaling.

Honestly, not that I can tell. The settings menu takes you to brightness, controls and credits.

I'm planning on a 1920x1080 res monitor though and the game looks fine. A little blurry due to the post processing but that looks very much intentional and I don't think it's because it's getting stretched.

Just weird as, since the game started out as a PC game, I would have thought this stuff would have made it in. Then again, changeable settings seem like they'd be a late development stage feature if the engine isn't build to be scaled heavily.
