Well I think Dirt and Lost Planet are examples of great console ports. They should change some things in the interface to make them less console-like, specially if you don't own (or don't want to use) a 360 controller. Also the autosave feature on Dirt is really annoying. But once you get into the game, they really shine.

I think, in general, things are getting better on the PC side. Once DX10 is widely spread and Vista drivers are more mature (and 162.15 are very good drivers), the PC will be even better.

PC could do soo much better but most of the modern PC games are just badly optimized console ports.
that is true, all this console **** is bringing down the quality of games.

look at Oblivion, look how ****ty it looks on 360, then compare how it looks on PC with few texture mods.

Every game could look so much better if not for consoles limited memory space

But look how crappy both Dirt and Lost Planet perform now. Won't adding higher res textures make the games run even worse?

hey 40-50 fps at Ultra settings, compared to xbox 360 what looks like medium IQ settings, i wouldn't call that bad performance.

Plus texture size won't affect performance that much if you have a place to store those textures. 768mb of vram on GTX is a good amount.

also remmember 360 renders everything at 720p, in case of DiRT it can upscale that 720p to 1080p.

Wow, to get that kind of frame rate I have to drop down to 10x7. I'm at 21-28fps usually at 19x10.

Odd I can't select 12x7 in the game? Is that resolution not supported in the PC game?

BTW, i fixed my save game

stupid Bluetooth. Day before i installed a Bluetooth adapter, and that installed a Bluetooth LAN NIC.

This game is very picky about LAN, if you change LAN NICs or you disable one it will result in corrupted save game.

All its well now.

Make sure you are online and try again,the single player REQUIRES an internet connection.

Quick question,has anyone got sli to work? Every place I've searched the verdict is sli is broken on this game for now.If I run it in single card mode it does run better,peaks in the 50's to lows in the high 20's.I tried split and afr1 and 2,best was peaks in the high 40's and lows in the low 20's
