pc always

console is locked at 30 fps while pc is not, meaning it will be noticeable smoother.

plus physx, but I don't think you will use it.

Of course everyone will say PC is better when it's the PC BOARD you're posting on.

im pretty sure the graphics will look a lot better on the pc?

but the biggest question is the game play better on the keyboard and mouse?

been playing origins on my pc. its ok but the mouse is a bit annoying. left clicking right clicking. while fighting bad guys.it impossible to keep the screen steady.. but its ok. its still acceptable.

you can use your xbox 360 or ps3 controller with the pc.

Most PC games in the last 5 years will allow use of a Controller, any wired 360 controller with Windows 7 and up (Vista too but not sure if that needs a separate driver, and XP requires a driver) are plug and play with self installing drivers.

There's no reason to use a mouse and keyboard for basically all non shooter PC games now.

And yes, the Batma Arkham series and most PC games, even with a 58050 will look and run games better than a PS3/360 even if you kept the settings at medium and just upped the resolution. And at only a fraction of the cost per game.

It's playable on console. You'll get the same general experience. But on PC you'll get much, much smoother gameplay and better graphics. Neither of those will matter if you're a console gamer though.

Also like others have mentioned you can use a controller on PC with no problems.

If you have a 360 controller for your PC, then that is the best way to go. If you don;t have a controller, get it for consoles.

I found the KB/M controls to be easy to use with this.
