sure i get flamed cause people hate to admit that their stonking new system is being dissed, but im not really dissing it, i just think pc graphics ought to be better by now!
You have a sh~tty laptop then. There isn't a sony made today that has a decent video card, if you wanted a laptop for gaming then you wouldn't have bought a Sony at all, much less one with a crappy video card.
PCs are a whole new world, lets see you download a DEMO of a game to try it out in less then an hour (my connection) and then install modifications to the game that make it more fun, and do this all while listening to a set you just downloaded.
Any body who wants to compare a console to a PC just needs to get a clue. Sorry, but thats the truth. If your looking to buy a computer JUST to play games, then you need to start reading or something because once again, you have no clue.
There will always be a market for consoles, consoles do what they do well. Which is play games. Nobody disputes that, but I can't rip my favorite Internet Radio station while listening to it, be downloading 15 torrents in Azureus, and have two mIRC connections getting some pr0n - all while getting freaked out playing Doom 3 at 60 fps.
This forum needs the dude holding the sign that says "THIS TOPIC SUCKS". If you want to play games, buy an Xbox and mod it.
