    Look at the awesome power of the PC. And to think that game developers are only PORTING console games, with crappy textures/geometry/physics on it.

    Consoles should be BANNED. Period.

    I have the terrible feeling my 2 brand new 460 GTX video cards will not be able to go over 15 fps with this :@

    let’s allow crappy and ugly console ports because that level of reality is not for my Radeon 4850 😀 I play Stalker CS and COP which have the best PLAYABLE level of reality now. Of course if you don’t have the top Quad-SLI system – then you can want some more…
