have you noticed that you cant just slap doom into just any pc of today either?
you are comparing apples to oranges , one is a 3 year old console that is about to get a large update and one is a pc that you have prob purchased all the bits for in the last 6 months. the fact that the xbox can room doom with ALL the fx turned on but at lower resolution is testimony itself to how powerfull the console is.
or how flexible the engine is.
