Default not impressed

I was over at a friends house this weekend and he had gotten and xbox 360. So he was bragging about how awsome the graphics were and the load times being quick. He was playing oblivion and it just kinda looked crappy, Compared to when I play it on the computer his load times really sucked. at least 3x longer.

I just expected a little more out of it I guess.

Ya his dads 360 broke down once, sent it back. They returned him a "recertified" model and it jsut broke. He requested he wanted a brand new one to replace it and it has already been 3 weeks. lol

that's true but I am not a big fan of the XboX, I bet it would look much better on a PS3 with less stress.

The way I see it is (IMHO) when consoles can out do any PC then I will look into them. Sure I'll get a PS3......when they are about $150.

Fade, you already have a 8800. How is it? Is it time for me to dump the X1800XT 512mb card?
