    Already did...They briefly covered the differences and did most of the review using pc footage (which looks amazing btw).

    I know I want the game but I just can't bring myself to buy the console version after seeing the pc footage.

    Gamespot rated the PC version highest and the Xbox360 version lowest.

    If it's something you're going to do eventually anyway, the game apparently looks and runs significantly better on PC.

    It's not something I have the funds for right now so I might just buy the ps3 version now and get the pc version later. :hs:

    That's what I'm thinking but the reviewers say it's still a great game for consoles. I'm just questioning how much of that is just console bias though.

    I can't even believe someone with both a console and pc would even consider this.

    I play fine on 360, if your computer cant handle it then no biggie. You'll have it mastered in an hour or two

    I'm playing this on 360 and wish I was playing on my PC. Too much stuff for a controller in this game, imo.

    Mac adverts depict Mac users as far too cool to play RPGs.
