Call of Duty 4 ‘Bog Rescue’ Gameplay Video

Call of Duty 4 `Bog Rescue` Gameplay Video

Finally! A Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare gameplay video! Infinity Ward released a new Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare video today which shows even though this Call Of Duty game is in a new “era”, the game still holds true to it’s Call of Duty roots.

The gameplay video does an excellent job of showing how hectic the levels still are and also show some amazing visuals such as smoke effects off in the distance, flares that illuminate the immediate area, and the use of night vision equipment. And it’s all currently in Pre-Alpha, so I could imagine what amazing visuals Call of Duty 4 will be capable of when it’s complete.

I just have to say one thing. If we pc gamers get shafted on this one and there is no pc port of this game, I’m going straight over to Infinity Ward and slap everyone there. I’m tiered of seeing these sweet games go to the consoles only to be missused by the fumbling fingers on a slow game pad. Please, someone tell me I’m not the only one that feels this way.

When did games stop being creative?


On June 21, 2007 at 10:04 am

I totally agree with you, Jose Perez.

I Agree with Mr. Perez.

Who says this isnt going to the PC platform? I’m assuming your referring to Call of Duty 3 but that had nothing to do with Infinity Ward, that was Activition, totally different setup.


On June 21, 2007 at 10:20 am

LOL, PC lover might cry. Fumbling fingers eh? Sorry you can’t use dual analog, I know it’s hard for monkey brains to comprehend.

Get real. Do you know how many PC games never port to console? Be happy with what you get, and don’t criticize a control style which is far better at maintaining a level of difficulty in video GAMES. It’s better to be able to walk and run on the same stick, to move both your feet and your pointer in 360 degrees at the same time. I’m so sick of hearing people say that dual analog is inferior just because they can’t use it. It’s HARDER not INFERIOR. The challenge means that it takes a true gamer to master it.


On June 21, 2007 at 10:29 am

In response to Jose, I would much rather pop this one in to my 360 and play right away and fumble with my game pad. Then have to worry about am I gonna have enough ram and a video card that can play this above 12fps. PC gaming is dying out due to the simplicity of the consoles, sorry but it’s just the way it is. PC has what? Warcraft? Pfft….


On June 21, 2007 at 10:35 am

It’s actually been announced for the PC! :grin:


On June 21, 2007 at 10:39 am

This is target render footage. This isn’t actual gameplay.

In other words, this was all pre-rendered and is the final goal for the game’s graphics. This is what CoD4 should look like… but I don’t think it’ll be this good.


On June 21, 2007 at 10:40 am

@ Jose

Agreed, this better come out on PC, I heard it was…..

WOW! this is an amazing video. Really enjoyed it. I am gonna get Call of Duty 4 very soon. I watched its trailer, but never watched a gameplay video of it. Such a nice video! :razz:


On June 21, 2007 at 11:11 am

@ Morgan

Console FPS games are a joke. The dual analog just doesn’t compare to a mouse / keyboard combo in terms of precision / accuracy… Console FPS games will never be as fun to play, and you’ll never be truly immersed in the game like you could a PC FPS, where you truly feel part of the action, not just sitting on a couch holding a childish controller…

Console racing games / side scrolling / fighting games, however, will always kill their PC equivalents.

But hey I’m a diehard PC fan… so I guess I’m biased a bit.


On June 21, 2007 at 11:19 am

It is Out-freakin-standing that COD4 will be available in PC! Consoles games are too limited, you are stuck with a controller that has very little customization, you can’t upgrade ram, video cards or anything else for that matter so you are stuck with it and have to buy the new system each year to keep up. PCs have much more potential and are more powerful. PC gaming is dying out, to say otherwise shows who’s uninformed.

Yeah Shadowrun for 360 is boring isn’t it? You so full of . Shadowrun on 360 is one of the funnest games I have ever played. You know nothing.

I bet he knows that “funnest” isn’t a word.


On June 21, 2007 at 12:53 pm

Hahaha people who argue over which console/PC is better are such dumbasses. You know instead of trying to make your console or PC look better than the others you could shut your mouth and just play your console of choice. We all have our own opionions about the game systems out there, but we don’t really need to hear them. :P


On June 21, 2007 at 1:28 pm

PC > * for all fps….there is really no reason to argue…


On June 21, 2007 at 3:19 pm

@ Morgan

Fps on the computer forces you to use twitch reaction. Fps on the consoles are slow compared to the PC. Gears of War is just roll, roll, roll some more, and maybe a little bit more, then chainsaw

I’m starting to think this whole modern combat thing for COD4 might turn out okay.


On June 21, 2007 at 8:42 pm

@ Morgan

Does Wii not come into this then?

Yeah, I know the graphics aren’t anywhere near there, but it certainly shows a lot of potential for wii fps. Don’t bother using Red STeel as an example to counter, eveyone knows that didn’t exactly come out perfect and don’t say “CoD3 wii kiDdeeZZ gRafx” either, we know the Wii isn’t that powerful. My point is, the wii pointer on it’s own shows a huge leap forward (potentially) for console FPS if they can get the control scheme right, and performing and carrying out gestures/1:1 actions is far more immersive than fiddling around for 10 minutes with your setup, as others noted spending ££££’s (or $$$$’s) on the latest equipment for one game you’ll get bored of in a week, and feeling around uncomfortably for G just to be able to wipe your own mouth. Once controls, along with the gesture/1:1 motion controls are sorted, it’ll be a huge step closer, and with future consoles when they decide to put some of those millions back into making the graphics up to scratch, PC begins to look pretty old hat in comparison. Times have changed, the PC hasn’t, and it just can’t compete with a dedicated games machine meant for games, designed for games and doesn’t rely on hugely inflated subscription charges via RTS games.

Bryant, that was all actual in game footage captured directly from a playthrough on the XBox 360 at 60hz.


On June 22, 2007 at 12:22 am

Anyone know which engine they are using?
I just hope the PC version supports DX 10.
And to the dude who said “PC Gaming is dying” They’ve been saying that for years. And we come back everytime.

Crysis? Hell Yeah.

A true gamer should master the game, not the controls. I have never heard anyone say “that game was so hard! i fumbled with the controller for hours just to learn how to move! i’m a real gamer!”


On June 22, 2007 at 2:53 pm


My best friend, like me, is a hardcore gamer. He is lucky enough to have a nice PC and a 360. He always tells me that as much as he loves his 360, there is no comparison in gameplay, enjoyment, and skill when it comes to the PC’s dominance over the 360 in an FPS (CoD2 for instance).

–I bought a couple Xbox controller converters from Europe that allow me to plug a keyboard and mouse (usb) into the xbox. When all our friends came over to play CoD2 (which they played just as much as me), I destroyed them all and there was absolutely no comparison.

CoD4 = PC…a must


On June 22, 2007 at 11:42 pm

“The challenge means that it takes a true gamer to master it.” Says morgan.

This statement just isnt true, a true gamer cares about their gaming enough to learn how to build their own machine to truly play the game the way they want, not trust someone else to. Furthermore, the challenge means it takes a True lamor who will sit around and get used to the controls for over a day before they get good enough to even hold their own, let alone actually start enjoying the game. With a PC, i can set the controls to whatever i want, and if i want, i can even buy a controller like your xbox 360 has and play any game with it, or a joystick, or a gaming pad. If you know anything about building computers, the xbox 360 is a childs toy in comparison.


On June 30, 2007 at 12:58 pm

I heard it will be out on ps3 first…anyone hear this?


On July 5, 2007 at 5:29 am

So who cares if you play pc or xbox360 computer is cool yeah for battle field and counter thats where it ends warcraft is seriously no life and yea fps looked on xbox but this is xbox360 so shut up. oh yea and shut up about the controllers its bs i could kick your mouse welding ass with a gamepad. and i like my mouse to.

Jose Perez

On July 5, 2007 at 1:09 pm

Wow… I guess I really opened the can of worms with my first post, lol. I guess the first thing I need to say is… SWEET. Thanks for letting me know that this game is going to be on the PC. Can’t wait :grin: .

I think I want to clear up a lot of confusion about pc gamers and console gamers. There really is a big difference between the two. Not only are ALL GAMES created on the pc or mac platform, they also always look better on a pc. You will never surpass the visual quality of a game on the pc. They were created there and will always look better there.

A lot of games that are made for consoles are designed around a fixed hardware scheme. They have to deliver a certain frame rate so that anyone can enjoy the gameplay. That means that they dumb down the graphics to accommodate for better speed. On the pc, depending on what hardware setup you have you can change the quality settings. But at full settings, the pc blows the console away visually.

Also, the console games must be enjoyable for a large spectrum of people. So you have different difficulty settings. Easy, Medium and Hard. Maybe sometimes there will be an extra hard setting, but still it makes me giggle inside. Lets just say that a random FPS on a console has an extra hard setting. If you were to put that game on a pc and give the player a keyboard and mouse it would still be way to easy to beat. Console difficulties are so bland because the dual stick.. Even though it is the only feasible way to play a FPS on a console, it still sucks and is not in any range of accuracy compared to the keyboard and mouse. (This brings up another point I made a while back on another post. The only console controller that even came close to being a superior FPS controller was the Nintendo 64 controller. It had a center joystick for head movement and 4 C-buttons for directional movement, go figure… just like WASD or the arrow keys on a keyboard. A Z-trigger in the back and two easily accessible buttons beside the C-buttons for weapon switch and reload. Can I get an Amen on that :lol: )

I bet all you people that are getting pissed right now because I’m bashing console controllers are saying to yourself, I could beat him, I’m so freaking good with the controller… I bet all of you play with auto aim and assisted aiming on. Yea, that does make it a bit easier now doesn’t it? lol. You rarely see an auto aim or aiming assistant check box on a pc game. If there was though, it was because it was a game designed for console first and then ported to pc, and they never took it out because they left in the ability to use a controller.

Someone made a comment that pc only has Warcraft. lol, time to broaden your horizons. I only play on pc and I have never even played Warcraft. All in all this is a great topic to be discussed. But all you console gamers have a special little surprise coming in the future. Either all consoles are going to start packing there boxes with keyboard and mouse capabilities or they are soon going to not even exist. Mock my words, but you will all see what I say is true.


On July 6, 2007 at 1:53 pm

Jose, that’s possibly the best mini-speech I’ve ever read :grin:
And I wholeheartedly agree (even with the 64 controller part :razz: )

Here’s my list of why PC gaming will always be better than consoles (at least with FPS)

A) Consoles play catchup. There’s no such thing as “nextgen” consoles. When a new console comes out, it’s basically the best they can do with what’s available at the time. The 360 (for example) made a pretty beefed up system for the price. What happens alittle over a year later? DX10 cards are released, which will soon leave DX9 far behind. No upgrade ability, so the Xbox fans will have to wait for the “nextgen” Xbox to come out to utilize the feature.

B) Controllers have dual analog. Most console gamers think of this as a plus (I used to when I exclusively played console and despised PCs). There are… if you play racers or games like Ultimate Alliance. But they don’t have as good of functionality as a mouse/keyboard when playing shooters. Not only is the precision not up to par, but the speed is my biggest gripe. When I played CoD2 rifles-only and saw someone pop up at the edge of my screen, normally I could twitch and snag him with one fluid shot before he even saw me. With a console, you’re limited by the “sensitivity” of the joysticks. You would have to essentially wait for the cursor to get to your enemy. Coupled with the precision problem, a controller is the worst way to play a shooter. We are not meant to move in Etch-a-Sketch fashion. Why do you think they have auto-aim?
If you don’t believe me, check out the COD4 Bog video again at the top. The guy couldn’t hit the friggin moon.

C) Consoles are limited. Like Jose stated: Do you wonder why console games run smoothly? Hardware-wise, they aren’t much better (if better at all) than a PC. So what makes the difference? The truth is the companies who make the games push back the quality of console games to meet standard requirements (such as the 60FPS restriction). PCs don’t have these restrictions.

And I’m sorry, but I can’t help but respond to Chase’s adoration for Shadowrun that he posted a while back. This game is the first (I believe) to allow 360 and PC gamers to play eachother cross-platform. Do you know why PC gamers don’t utterly annihilate the 360 guys in that game? It’s solely because Microsoft knows the handicap that the controller has compared to a mouse/keyboard. They FORCE PC players to use autoaim while playing multiplayer, effectively hindering the accuracy of the mouse. They had to downplay the way we play shooters so that there isn’t an advantage over the console guys.
(On a side note, they also restricted PC binds on the keyboard to the same amount the 360 controller would have.)

Well, this is getting too long, and I’m sure someone’s gonna about this or Jose’s post. So I’ll just respond to those later :razz:


On July 6, 2007 at 5:16 pm

you need to get a life and stop talkin bout your video game controllers

On July 6, 2007 at 11:06 pm

@ Jose…
Right on Brother~~!!!! lol.

All you PC haters are just jealous that you cant afford one. I play a few console games (mostly Nintendo made) but PC is wayyyy better than any console they will ever release. They now make controllers for the pc with that analog BS so how is the console better for that?

@ Ice
I totally agree with your statement about building your own . Not only is it fun, but you know what your getting.

:twisted: I’m a girl and ill kick ur ass at ANY game!!! :twisted:

On July 6, 2007 at 11:10 pm

Thanks apricots. Thanks for hitting the points that I missed and reaffirming the ones that I did talk about.

As for younerds, its sad that people like you (the ones that are not technically advanced enough to use a computer and to slow to get a console to turn on correctly) have to post these short little comments with no structure and impact on anything except for making yourself look like a complete ass. Good job… mission complete. I suggest that anyone else that posts a message like his prepare to look like a fool. Cheers and have a good night; I’m out.

I would have to say after reading all of the comments that I hope you all realize Call of Duty 4 is going to be an awesome game. Agreed? :wink:


On July 7, 2007 at 12:33 pm

I’m not quite sure about the perks system of the game yet, but yes, CoD4 will be utter sweetness.

On July 11, 2007 at 9:13 pm

Doesn’t Chase realise that Shadowrun is basically Counter Strke Source with worse weapons and magic.

Also i never found i was hindered by W,S,A,D on the PC for foot movement all you really need for shooters is strafe and backwards forwards.

too funny

On July 15, 2007 at 9:14 pm

Why do people think that games are gonna look better on pc? Consoles are pc’s without mouse and key board. They both have graphics cards and ram just like a pc they opperate identically and games can obviously look good with less (Halo 1 with a 700 mhz processor and crap for ram). And games are being tailored more for consoles these days and ported to computer so pc people don’t . Half life is coming to console with portal and team fortress, Bio shock (system shocks predissesor) isn’t just pc. Some games like command and conquer should never be on a console. As to Halo shouldnt have never gone to pc. Simply put its and just to make money. I prefer a conroller because twitchy movements dont get you kills they often get you killed, and I feel are very smooth in movement. Pc’s will always have games and consoles will to just pc users will have to purchase $200 dollars in ram per stick when 2 gig sticks release and $500 in graphics cards or more and consoles will be $4-600. So in the end we all pay just consoles not so much. :twisted:

too funny

On July 15, 2007 at 11:57 pm

Perez your right about the N64 control setup with the whole w,s,a,d. But is where your kind hypicritical is that its a controller just reversed and the w,s,a,d is being sat on your ass LOL! keyboard keys. Im just givin you a hard time and —> Your too funny. I love pc biased people. And what else is funny is when people say one console is better than another when they are soo similar.


On July 16, 2007 at 8:19 am

you have no idea what you were talking about and that was obvious in that probably no one else will understand it either as your comment [9:14] got less and less understandable

This just cracked me up because it made absolutely no sense at all.
And I quote “But is where your kind hypicritical is that its a controller just reversed and the w,s,a,d is being sat on your ass LOL!”

Perez you forgot the end of it. It’s the best part “But is where your kind of hypicritical is that its a controller just reversed and the w,s,a,d is being sat on your ass LOL! keyboard keys.” You know im right and i’m sorry I put a bunch of things together in one post. It’s because there are a few things that I was answering from other peoples posts including yours. BUT the one thing you didn’t understand which is TOO FUNNY lol. Is pretend your face has a W on your forehead, S on your chin, A on your right cheek, and D on your left and a big hairy ass is sitting on your face thats the joy stick and when the ass leans left its pressing D, but ok don’t lose me here when it rocks from left to down it moves from D to D+S until its at S just like a joystick/joypad. You see it? not the hairy ass but the joystick.

You guys have no life argueing over such petty matters. Once the game is released you will all know what systems cod4 comes out for and wich one it’s better for.

too funny

On August 4, 2007 at 10:55 pm

Just cause we post something we have no life. I love that. But you know what is nice is that xbox 360 gets a beta. :mrgreen:


On August 5, 2007 at 12:10 am

when does it come out i still have not heard im a true pc player i have been with the call of duty serise since it started the Ps3 and XboX 360 have nothing on pc players! They play on the comp. and are shocked because of the difficulty in playing! if any1 could tell me when cod4 comes out i would like 2 know plz email me at thank you very much and good night!


On August 5, 2007 at 12:20 am

Yea, congrats to all the 360 users on the beta. The charlieoscardelta forums were a really nice play to discuss CoD4 rumors and whatnot. Then IW announced the 360 beta during E3, and the site got flooded with “OMG! BETA! HOW DO I SIGN UP?!??!?!?!?!!!???!??!!!!!!?!?!?!???!!!” threads.

You can’t for the life of you tell me (although it does have universal normality) that the 360 is REMOTELY a good place to host a beta. Although PC versions of CoD do have their set of the same people, there are far more gamers who have been with the series for four years and would (figuratively) give a limb to help IW with good feedback. What will they have now? Exactly the same thing that went wrong with the Halo 3 beta. Need a visual on that?


On August 5, 2007 at 4:13 am

i just want to point out 1 thing about console FPS games. (well maybe a couple)

Has anyone ever notice that ALOT of the Console Fps games have AUTO AIM??? oh aimbot cheater!! haxor!! lol Now i know there are soemg ames that do not ahve auto aim but lets think of theese games for example Rainbow Six 3(i know its old but only thing i can think of). yes there is no auto aim but the movements in the game are slow… Thus getting rid of the need for auto aim.

Now pc Games have auto aim in signal player but are coded for the auto aim to be disabled in multi-player. Thus no one gets “assisted” in aiming their weapon. Now i know someone will say well this game has no auto aim. And maybe there are a few out there. buth then think of this. 2 players come around a corner and apss each other they are on oposite sides in the game. they have to take 3-5 seconds to turn all the way around to shoot each other. Now i find that very funny. In pc game this is less than a second gun fight normally.

Now back to the point if the game-pad is so much better why do most of the games have Auto Aim? I am neither PC or Console sided really. I just stating how i see it. I love my consoles cause of certaing ames on it and i love my pc for certain games. The only thing that makes me lean toward PC more is how you can create “mods”. (aka Counter-Strike was a MOD of Half-Life then later bought by valve) Thus making your money much mroe worth it. In that with 1 pc game you can get many mroe games do to “mods”.


On August 5, 2007 at 8:57 am


What PC games have you been playing that have auto-aim in single player? The only ones I can think of were The Suffering and its sequel, and that’s only because they were ports and the developers didn’t want to take the time to allow mouse sensitive movements


Sorry, I’m too lazy right now to email. The release date has been rumored as late October/early November. It’ll basically be based on how well the beta goes.


On August 27, 2007 at 12:51 am

Nov. 5th


On August 30, 2007 at 12:33 pm

I enjoy listening to all these console fools thinking that they are so much better than us PC players. I would love to be able to play against console players on my PC and kick their asses. And enough of this “omg pc’s are too expensive *cry, cry*”. A PC isn’t just used for gaming you idiots. And one thing I was wondering, are these perks going to be for PC too? or just the 360? Anyways can’t wait for this game, it’s going to be outta this world.


On September 1, 2007 at 4:11 pm

LOL morgan.. mate your a foolish foolish boy, get real sif a console will ever compete with a PC, when they learn how much PC’s are owning ur a$$ in shadowrun they will handi-cap us… Thats ok we will still own.
ANy PC owner can tell you what his/her specs are, coz they built it, know what your 360 specs are?? oops, nevermind, Like it matters………


On September 14, 2007 at 1:28 am

Maybe its time for me to clear a few things up.

Actually going back onto topic.

Call of Duty 4 has received a lot of advertisement, even on the television. But who is advertising the game? because it cant be the developers can it, so it must be Microsoft. Now since Microsoft doesnt specialize in pc gaming, why would they even bother advertising it for the PC? No, they instead spend an awful lot of money grabbing the console fans, and tbh, its impressive. It may appear that Call of Duty 4 was in fact built for the console, when really, you have just got the wrong impression. The Call of Duty series developed by Infinity ward has always been a PC game series. The only valid reason for Infinity to change their perspective and aim would be money, and a hellish amount of it. Joining microsoft has given them an open opportunity for a massive profit. But as a result, they have had to show all the previews, all the reviews, and even the beta, on a 360 format, just to get the point across that it is going to be a brilliant console game. However, if you looked closely and actually listened to the guys who presented the game at E3, you would have heard a few keywords which gave the PC version a good name. Their is no fact to suggest that the console version is the “main version”, thats just an assumption. It is more reliable to suggest that the PC version will be the “main version”, purely because of the amount of experience Infinity Ward has under their belt.

Apparently the PC version also has certain advantages over the consoles version according to the devs, so i cant wait to see how it shapes up. Unfortunately, COD4 is under microsoft ruling, the beta release would have been for console for that reason. If it were up to infinity, i doubt they would have hesitated to give pc gamers a look.

On September 14, 2007 at 6:27 am

reading some of the console/pc arguments.
you know what is great about the 360??
you dont need a new graphics card every time a new game comes out.
as for analogue controlers, its better than a keyboard, like on conflict desert storm.
damn, that was HARD!

by the way, i play both 360 and p.c, so I know of where i speak, so dont try telling me with is better. I ALREADY KNOW. ITS 360 HANDS DOWN.


On September 14, 2007 at 1:31 pm


I’d like to quote everything Arkeneaver said. This has been proven time over with IW’s conferences/news releases/etc. Even the reason CoD2 basically never was patched for PC was due to CoD4′s development. CoD4 is a PC game, plain and simple.

@hacoc of smeg

A) You don’t need a new graphics card for every new game coming out for PC. Many people have had GPUs for a very long time and still play just-released games. Now, the graphics settings they may need to use just to run it may be low, but still playable. I just built a new comp a year ago so I can’t use that as an example, but the comp before that was built about 2 years before the 360. Today, I can still use that old computer to play Bioshock relatively well (doesn’t look the greatest, but still pretty good). Try that with an Xbox. Oh wait, you can’t. You need to buy a 360 to play Bioshock. People tend to forget that. PCs have a HUGELY longer lifespan than the typical 4/5 year console. Granted, by that time, the PC will struggle to play “next-gen” games, but it can still play them. The point of buying a new videocard every so often is to actually stay up with the games, pushing them to their limits rather then them pushing back on the cards. New cards are people’s preferences. If I bought a new graphics card today, it would be because I need it, yes. But for DX10. I can still play Bioshock and, presumably, Crysis in DX9, but if I upgraded to a DX10 card, I could push the games to their brink and not shutter. Can a 360 do that? Nope, sorry. Not even the 360 can handle the ultimate that Bioshock, and many new games, can dish out. Hmm… two years and it’s already behind in the game. Oh well.

B) As stated a thousand times, controllers vs keyboard/mouse is up to preference. But to say “w00t! controllers ftw!” without defending that statement at all is very telling. It says you’re a console fanboy (and I don’t mean that in a bad way) with no real comparison between the two forums of play. You may say that you play both PC and console, but there is no possible reason you can tell me (oops, that sounds biased) why a controller is better for an FPS. Originally, the controller was designed for side-scrollers, the joystick for flight sims, and the mouse for shooters (minus the Doom days). Not only does the mouse/keyboard combo have the best in customization, it also allows for superior movement over the controller, both in walking/running and sight. What do you think they based the dual analog sticks on? And the mere fact that this is true adds a level of difficulty to FPS games on PC because the other guy has the same advantage. You need to be quicker with every respect in order to stay atop the competition. Jumping into the air like in Halo is a death sentence in most PC FPSs, not a tactical maneuver.

damn that WAS hard! Maybe you should come up with some backing to your claims, and then maybe I’ll actually respect what you have to offer the world.

“so I know of where i speak, so dont try telling me with is better.”
Too late. I already told you with is better, because I couldn’t understand half the things you typed.


If you think I’m bashing consoles, I’m not. They’re what most people grew up with, and there are majorly fun/challenging games out there for every system (maybe not the PS3 :P ). That does not however include FPS games. That is all. Sorry for the novel

i get wat your saying, but i was actually a pc gamer before i turned to consoles, and your right about graphics cards lasting a while, but sooner or later(say after 5+ years), you WILL have too upgrade.
were as with 360/ps3/wii or any console, you will be able to play all games ever released, but to play ALL pc games, upgrade IS needed, even if it is a few years down the line.

and i do have comparison between pc and console. i often use both in the same day for the same type of games.
i guess it does come down to with you like best, but 9 times out of ten, i have found console controller simplicity the best, at least for me.
and out of curioustity, you havnt played conflict desert storm on p.c have you??
for me the only exception really is command and conquer type games.

i also am a console fanboy, but i am ALSO a p.c fanboy. i just have come to prefer consoles in light of upgrades and controller preferance.


On September 28, 2007 at 7:28 pm

I just wasted 10 minutes of my life reading all these comments…i am a console fanboy, but i do have to say, pc games kick butt when it comes to graphics.I still like controllers better, all you do is increase the sensitivity to your prefered setting…it’s just opinion.

On October 2, 2007 at 6:10 am

pc is the best… can u do this wid ur dumb consoie’s :?: . nooooooooo!! u need a PC.


On October 3, 2007 at 2:49 am

Ok, enough. It’s time to settle the score between computers and consoles.

There is no doubt that PC’s are superior compared to consoles in any game
there ever will be released. This conclusion is based on the facts that games
are developed on computers, computers have superior controllers and computers
are always ahead when it comes to hardware powers.

However. It is very hard (time consuming) to develop games for PC’s, since there
are many possible customer computer setups. This forces the developers to create
multiple settings for the game, so one can play with the best setup for his/hers
computer. This gets us to the problem why games released at the moment are first
designed to current consoles.

The problem at the moment is that pc’s dont get to use their full power, since the games are developed with the consoles in mind. In otherwords the
current consoles are holding Pc’s back. This is because the consoles together
have a bigger market for games than the pc’s, and developers wish to create games for those markets, and don’t have time and resourcess to create the same
game from scratch with a more sophisticated and better engine for top notch computers.

Conclusion: Consoles are the evil power holding back the development of
bigger, stronger, faster and more realistic games. If there never were any
consoles we would have farcry 3 already.

P.S. First Halo was a bad port of Duke Nukem 3D from pc’s. Duke had superior
aiming with a mouse support, better and bigger network and don’t forget it was
released like 100 years ago.


On October 3, 2007 at 3:02 am

Oh i almost forgot about dukes network interactivity. When i rpg’d my friends ass,
i could make duke say: “i got balls of steel”, “shake it baby” etc. Halo? NADA

@petey boy

you can you ignorant $%^$. never used a PS3, thats got broadband internet and keyboard ad-on.


like they are better. i would say that p.c graphics are very on par with current gen(360, ps3) HDTV graphics.
as for controllers i would say that a 360 controller is simpler and therefor faster than using a keyboard and mouse. you cant really use the mouse for EVERYTHING in an FPS such as halo.
you need a move key, aim, reload, shoot and cycle weapon for FPS’s. you cant have that ALL on a mouse, but you can with a controller. and if you need to use a keyboard, with you do, you have to make sure you dont accidently press the wrong button and screw up, therefor slowing you down a bit, allowing your opponent all the more time to kill you.

and who said you have to make games from console equivelants?

try justifying your comments, instead of just spouting your thoughts.

p.s do you really believe the opinion of a man WHO SPELLS ‘THE’ WITH A ‘W’!?!?!?!?

I played CoD 2 in my PC and sometimes press the wrong button and get myself killed when i played CoD 4 beta on 360… lol i pwnd everyone ‘cuz i didnt do any mistakes like pressing the wrong button.


On October 8, 2007 at 10:44 am

So what you are saying here Dono is that you are a horrible gamer? It’s amazing how many people can do good on a console game that actually are pathetic gamers. The controller was designed to help noobs like dono over here not get completely raped every single round. Good game, PC for the win.


On October 12, 2007 at 8:53 am

You walk around with your hands open , you rest your hands over a keyboard and mouse , you dont walk around with a brick in your hands, thats how you hold a controller :oops:
The point is . Its bloody comon sence that you can move your hand , a flick of the wrist and use fingers quicker , with more ease when there over the top of an object rather than holding one .
Its not an argument , its a fact .
Yes you can get used to thumb controllers and own everyone but plug your controller in a pc and you wont even get a chance to aim before your hit.
So one day your controller may be better than my mouse/keyboared combo.But for now it aint, If im wrong ,controllers would be marketed for a pc gamer , thing is there not . :oops: ( yes i no you can plug one into a pc ,and theres probably adds around for pc game controller’s , but no one would sugest to you that it would be better to use a controller than a mouse/keyboard for your new fps pc game, even the nice chap at the pc store would laugh at you for even thinking it).
Why do i care ?
Because i would hate to think some kid goes and buys a controller for his pc because his mate who owns a 360 said its better, Then gets abused for being such a nub.
And dont go round saying pc gaming is dying out , its totaly different from console gaming and if you owned a pc you would no thats theres hundreds of garage games out there also mods people come up with to change the look and feel of a game and theres a few free games around that ant to bad.
Hardly dying , its more like develpoing even more than before.

Good graphics in a game are a bonus dosent make it a better game, so for me since i play cod2 in dx7 mode :shock: 360s look way better than my pc does , but i cant stand the slugish controlls. so ill stick with my out of date pc thank you.

A true gamer plays a game for FUN
No matter wht there playing the game on , ass long ass there having a good time, thats wht its all about.

So if i get cod4 to work on my pc , ill cya in there..


On October 14, 2007 at 12:52 pm

Ok to settle this, here’s a quote for you. It’s from Gamespot’s interview with Infinity Ward studio head Grant Collier…. (who probably knows a bit more about the subject)

“GS AU: Call of Duty 4 is coming out for the 360 and for PCs. Why did you decide not to include Live cross-platform functionality?

GC: We got a call from Microsoft who said they want us to do Live Anywhere for CoD 4. They just left a message–we didn’t actually get the phone call. We talked about it, and really feel that we worked really hard on the Xbox 360 version, and there’s a lot of things that we do that we didn’t do for the PC because of the control you have with a mouse and keyboard which allows you to have a higher level of precision. When you are on the 360, you have auto-aim, and you have a movement compensator so when you’re getting close to the edge of the screen it moves really quickly, but when you’re in the middle of the screen it slows down so you can target. We don’t do that on the PC.

When someone is playing on the Xbox against another player, he knows that they have the same hardware and the same controller–the only advantage is skill. On the PC side, you never know what the guy is playing with. He can have an archaic machine, or he could set his settings low, or he could be using the lowest form of DirectX. He can have all of the graphic bells and whistles turned off, or can have a dual core machine, or a quad core, multiple video cards–he can have a lot of advantages, and there’s not an equal playing field.

I think Live Anywhere is great for certain games, like Poker or Tetris or something. But, realistically, for first-person shooters or real-time strategy games, trying to pit those two people together is inherently imbalanced. Anytime someone playing an RTS can click and drag and choose a whole bunch of units and select one of your buildings to blow it up, and you’re sitting there with a controller, you’re not going to have the same reaction time. So why pit those two against each other?

I think Live is a great idea and it’s good for certain games, but Call of Duty isn’t one of those games. ”

Now I’ve got an Xbox controller attached to my PC which goes unused most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, for certain types of (arcade) games it’s perfect but for driving games, I’ll use my G25. For FPS/RTS I’ll use my mouse & keyboard thank you very much.

I just wish they were including cross-platform multi-player so this argument could be settled in-game :twisted:

I think the gamepad users would get VERY bored VERY quickly though .. lol

Anyway, sorry for the long post. Looking forward to the game, look v nice :)

On October 31, 2007 at 10:54 am

It’s a poor carpenter who blames his/her tools.

While I do think a PC is faster, and more accurate, it would be hard to make an arguement against that, I feel console shooters feel more immersive. PC shooters, and I’ve played many, always felt a little like missle command. Put your mouse here and shoot. That is until the first Call of Duty came out on PC. Best FPS shooter to date no question at that time. Online play, and play hardened single player, and you felt the rush.

A lot of those console one off Call of Duty’s sucked, but the online Call of Duty 3 was pretty amazing.

Console shooters are more fun for ME cause they feel more immersive. Being the fastest and most accurate in the world isn’t my goal. It’s having fun, and I’m still plenty fast and accuarate (without auto aim) As long as I’m kicking ass, I dont wonder, how much faster could I be on a PC.

I do think it’s ammusing though, that every “PC gamer” es about the controller being a baby’s toy, that just seems crotchety and old.

also, how is it that pc games require anymore skill? because of the mouse and keyboard? my 6 month old niece could point a mouse cursor on an enemy and click the button, but i bet she couldnt use a dual analog…and like that novel said above, pc’s are rarely equal in games, so when you think youre good youre probably just playing against someone with a lesser machine, whereas when i own on a console i know they are playing on the same thing and am truly just better.

Ok here i believe this will make console vs pc argument stop. Compueters were firtsly invented for actualy warfare and the first few computers (though A LOT weeker then ours) where a few rooms large. Then they eventualy became more standardised fort buisnees which is what even in todays world they are mostly meant for. Eventualy a few gamesd where developed for PCs and you know teh rest.

Consoles where invented for video games and they later added some extra features but they still have the same standard use. Which would you use for gaming, somethign that was invented for it, or somehting that was invented for buisness and has some games that for most poeple I know will be on about 8 fps. PC games are good but console games have a much better feel.

FPS are best for consoles, that is a FACT, not an opinion. PC diehards do not have the skill or coordination to play on a dual stick controller, so they knock it, obviously. Why would some PC nerd admit to being uncoordinated? The mouse and keyboard setup is a cop out. As someone else stated, even some child could point the mouse at an enemy and click to shoot but won’t be able to do it on a dual analog controller. Also, PC fans define “immersion” as having your face 13 inches away from the monitor, all locked up in a room somewhere where nobody else is allowed to come in. I bet they’d stick their head through the screen if they could. Immersion is feeling the recoil of your carbine on your controller (for xbox 360 anyway, not so for the PS3)and shaking the entire house with the explosions going off on your 5.1 surround sound, sitting on a nice comfy couch, staring at a 50″ HDTV, with people around you enjoying the game as they watch you play.


On November 12, 2007 at 1:55 pm


you are silly.

so much anger young man. Today you canhave a media pc connected to your living room plasma and surround sound board and faster processors than any console. Anyway, the controller thing is nice with reverb. But you can get that belkin thing and a usb/bluetooth airmouse(so you don’t need to have it on a table) like a Wii controller and shoot that way.

I guess the word is peace out. stay in school.

Anyway other than this mess. I was going to ask if anyone has beat the game yet on veteran. I beat it the other night, on the last level int the plane in 58.2 seconds in the main run. I was just wondering if anyone else has beaten the last stage faster than that?

Doesn’t that take the “personal” out of PC? Glad to hear that it is now possible for a computer to impersonate a gaming console, all for under $2k! I’ve got a better idea. How about buying a 360 instead? But I guess chicks will dig you more if you pull a McGyver and turn your PC into a console.

I am reading these and just laughing away. I play on both xbox 360 and PC. I agree that some games are better on specific systems. I do, however, like playing on my 360 better b/c i have it connected to a HD projector on a 93 inch screen and DTS surround sound. But again certain games should never touch a console. For example- Quake wars Enemy territory should have never left PC.
I think what ever you play on is a personal choice and there is no right or wrong. So I say JUST PLAY and kick ASS.

Also Bioshock & COD4 looks amazing in 1080I at 93 inches. Game re-play is high as hell.

Halo 3 just as disappointing as Halo 2.

Oh Yeah. CRYSIS will be awesome.


On November 20, 2007 at 3:29 pm

There was a comment that said how most gunfights usually end in less than a second on PC compared to 3-5 seconds on a console; all I can say is get an actual gun and turn 180 degrees in less than a second and see how accurate you are… The truth is you need to move methodically with a fire arm or else your aim won’t hit the broad side of a barn. I like both PC and consoles, but the whole twitch thing is exciting but unrealistic in the PC environment.


On November 20, 2007 at 3:30 pm

Guns are heavy, and it’s not realistic to move so fast and maintain the pin-point accuracy that mouse and keyboard allows.

bluetooth or usb keyboard and mouse connected to ps3. awesome graphics and best control system for FAR less cash than equivalent pc setup. pc and console have their pros and cons but the gap between them is closing. if you got loads of cash then pc will be better (at the moment) but bang for your buck console has always had it.

paul jc, there is no keyboard and mouse option yet (you can use 3rd party accessories for playstation 2 to use ps2 (pc) connector keyboard and mouse) but soon there will be full wireless and usb keyboard and mouse support. a software update will allow this. sony might decide to only allow sony products to be used but i doubt this since they have been VERY open wih the system so far what with the choice of running windows or linux on it, using 2.5″ laptop hdd’s and connecting loads of bluetooth accessories from other manufacturers. it won’t be long until it’s ready and then i’m going straight out and buying that super skinny bluetooth metal keyboard by apple. at the touch of a button you’ll have the brilliant keyboard and mouse setup which is is so needed to truly enjoy the briliant fps titles on console.
i have a pc and a ps3 and i believe that the keyboard and mouse is the best control system (for first person shooters) at the moment. the only improvement i can think of is incorporating an analogue stick for movement without sacrifing the sheer quantity of keys the keyboard has to offer. first person shooter aiming is best done with a mouse. any console gamer who says it’s better with dual analogues either has auto aim on or is just bitter because his pc won’t run the latest game/console doesn’t have keyboard and mouse.

mouse is better than analogue for fps. it’s a fact. it’s not subjective.

Well niclas you have the right to an opinion. Analog is fun if there isn’t auto aim, mouse is pretty good, and I have to say the wii remote is pretty good for fps aswell.

your 100% right. the the gamepad is entirely to slow making it less of an fps and more of a first target first kill.
@everyone else. it’s not more of a “challenge” when you see somone and it takes u 30 seconds to target him (very high sensitivity) and turning around to kill somone when ur shot from the back? IMPOSSIBLE. unless of course hes entirely to stupid to even play CoD

there are already cross-platform games. in time, more games will be cross-platform and when your game becomes cross platform, you’d better hope you’ve got a keyboard and mouse. no auto aim will save an analogue stick user from a keyboard and mouse.
if you like the way it takes a decade to turn 90 degrees with an analogue stick then i suppose you’re ok but when your KpD ratio is 1:47 i’m sure you’ll be sufficiently annoyed to go out and buy a mouse.
i have a wii too and it’s better than analogue for accurate aiming but it lags and hurts your wrist if you use it for more than 6 hours a day. scarface was was ok for pain but super mario galaxy ruined my wrist.

Lolz yeah but I think anyone who plays more than six hours a day eneds to egt out more… Well then again I am on this forum so I can’t say much =P

Anyone who chooses to bash the consoles based on “having to buy a new one to upgrade” should check the price of the newest card upgrades for the PC.
Keeping a PC on the cutting edge is not a cheap endevour. I finally gave up that pursuit and am much happier on my 360, even with my retarded little gamepad.

I will laugh if in the future consoles come standered with a mouse and keyboard .

PCs and Consoles have different strengths. For example consoles are excellent for driving games, adventure games and basically anything that benefits from a full analog input (ever tried playing 3D platformer and being limited to just arrows and diagonal run directions, SO FUN). Generally consoles don’t have ‘omg this game is not compatible with your soundcard/graphics/something random’ and until now they’ve been free of updates thus forcing games to actually be finished when they’re released. A lot of PC games are release now, patch later and don’t even work properly until a few patches in. Whether this changes with the new consoles we’ll just have to wait and see.

PCs rock at FPS, RTS and such like, have a massive breadth of accessories and don’t just play games. You can’t sign into teamspeak and chat with mates while gaming on a console (yet :P ) and you can’t mod games at all. In HL2 I hate the fact that headshots aren’t headshots so on a repeat playthrough (I did at least finish it as the devs intended first time through) I just edited the file that governed that part of the game. You can’t do that on a console.

Oh and as my friends put it when I suggested he get COD4 for his PC (he has it on PS3) he says ‘ah but I can’t play my PC in this chair, on this TV’

Which is true, and possibly the major difference between consoles and pcs these days :P

Why is there endless “mine is bigger than yours” debate. There is plenty of room for all platforms.

I personally prefer the PC for FPS’s due to the precision of aiming but also have a 360 and love that.

On July 9, 2008 at 8:42 pm

lol any any pc can be converted to run though a tv through either s video or hd i/o’s n and run very nice on a lcd tv over 50 inches , lol most high end pc chairs are better than couches and have longer seating times befor ur ass gets sore , if u ask me , consoles are for amitures , pc’s are for the creative bunch of us who want to mod games , mod there pc’s , upgrade to graphics cards that are being produced ahead of the games being developed , this game supports 2.0 shaders but in the 9 series g forces they have 3.0 shaders , games still arnt being made for this , you can run a pc in sli or get an addapter to run 4 monitors in sync of the one pc , all this and im not even a pc geek lol , i just got brought up on lego and realise , you can build anything better than anything pre manifactured on the market by any console developer

I believe she is the forth one on the list, good point however that you have to have a star ranking.
