    I'm kind of guessing that people will choose the version they actually bought... pointless question.

    It depends on the console.. PC to PS3 I'd pick PS3. PC to Xbox360 I'd Pick Either. PC to Wii, I'd Pick Wii.

    Well I own it on both, I enjoy it on PC because I usually rank up a huge high score. But honestly I like it more on the Xbox 360. My friends play it on that and I'd rather have fun then get a high score

    Having both PC and 360 I would say I prefer 360. The friends list is already set up for me and I hate dealing with servers.

    I would prefer to play it on a PC with mouse and keyboard... but I haven't upgraded my computer in a couple of years and got used to the controller layout already.

    My order of preference:

    1. Arcade
    2. Console
    3. Handheld
    .
    .
    .
    .
    10. PC

    Just never been a fan of PC gaming. The only kind of gaming I enjoy doing on a PC is with Arcade emulators, which technically isn't PC gaming.

    I played it on both Xbox 360 and PC, and I have to say I prefer 360. I love being able to just jump into a game. I played the PC version and is it just me or do people camp more in the PC version? I assume people don't wanna rush since the mouse gives a huge advantage on aim, or maybe PC gamers are just really good. Either way, I wasn't having too much fun on PC. At least in the Xbox version I can get a positive kd ratio.

    PC. The competitive community for the game on the PC version is much more lively.

    Depends on the genre really. 

    PC

    • FPS
    • RTS
    • MMO
    • WRPG
    • Flight  (Specifically Freespace/X-Wing VS Tie Fighter)

    Console
    • Third-person Action/Adventure
    • Fighting (2d/3d)
    • JRPG
    • Turn-based Strategy (SRPG)
    • Arcade Driving (Need for Speed/Burnout)

    EDIT:  HAHA!  Joke's on me!  Didn't realize this was specific to a COD4 forum.  Definitely PC in that case.  Better controls and more active servers are enough to seal that deal.

    Well, I've owned and played both the XBOX 360 version and the PC version. They each have their kool features.
    XBOX 360
    -New symbols next to names (Forgot mode name)
    -Standard Voice Chat

    PC
    -Much bigger servers (More Players)
    -Better Control
    -Better Graphics
    -Custom Content (mods, maps, models)

    Choose whichever you like, other than those defining characteristics, they are both the same.

    I agree completely with this breakdown. But to make it on topic, having played all 3 versions of the game I can definitely say I still prefer the PC version simply for it's controls and atleast a decent lacking of XBL children running around.

    I actually kinda like the Prestige mode on the console versions but FPSs are best played with a mouse and keyboard, aka PCs.

    As I own both PC and X360 versions, I have to say that PC is a much better experience. Of course, it all depends on what is available to you. I used third party chat frequently with a bunch of friends who I play CoD4 with, and we frequent get scrims. I've tried to get a few matches over on the X360 side of things, but I find that competetive 360 is totally different to playing it on the PC, for the wrong reasons. That's just my experience, anyway.

    I'd have to say that both have something to offer. I enjoy the 360 version because of the playlists and player matching system, you don't have to worry if you'll be able to find a game that's not hardcore. For the PC version depeding on your hardware you can get sharper visuals, and obviously better controls. What I don't like about both? 360 version: Host has left the game, PC version: Too many Hardcore servers.

    If I absolutely had to pick one it would be the 360 version because you can just jump in and play.

    Definitely PC.  Probably because it plays the best for the games I like to play with superior controls and interface.

    PC hands down. A game like CoD4 is much much slower on a console than it is on a PC.
    Aiming with a mouse will also always be better than a analog stick

    PC, as usual.  The only plus side to the 360 version is that all of my friends play it.
