Honestly, no offense to the PC I love, these screens don't make it look any better than the 360 version.

texture wise it might be close match, with PC slightly sharper. But AF and AA does make a huge difference.

I still think the 360 shot looks down scaled and resized. 720p is pretty low resolution, but that just seems excessive.
I wonder if they only had video capture hardware capable of SD resolutions or something. I guess they could just be really horrible screen grabs. But yea, obviously the interface is a big tipoff, the PC and 360's radar should be the same level of sharpness at the same resolution.

I'm running this is Vista and can only enable SSAA. Is anyone able to get MSAA working in Vista? I'm using the 169.44s. Yeah, I know they're old but they're the best drivers I've used and I've tried em all.

Comparing those pics the PC looks better, but those pics are VERY skewed. I am comparing it to what the 360 version looks like in upscaled 1080p over HDMI on a nice TV in person.

I'm sure it's better, I'm just saying I expected a bit more improvement. I'll still get it when I feel like going through the game again.

when i had the 360 for short time, 720p or less upscaled to 1080p looked rather bad compared to the same game on PC. While it might look ok from far distance, from 5-10 feet it was rather

lets get back to the topic, for console vs pc discussion there is that special thread.

Loving this game. Nuff said.

BTW, SLI apparently doesn't work well with the game. :P

I had to run it on single GPU.

what was the issue with SLI? and what driver do you have? I know that new drivers do have SLI profiles, not sure if they work.
