I tried it on my friends PC and my PS3, if you don't care about trophies and you have a good PC then yeah PC. It looked a lot better on my friends PC. Otherwise you know, it's the same game

I don't know about the online...

I heard the PC version was buggy, but they did update it recently. Still not sure how it plays on PCs at this point, but once they get that issue ironed out, probably PC. They have that "TressFX" or whatever it is for her hair - basically, dynamic-moving hair. Other than that, I only noticed one or two spots with significant slowdown at all on the PS3 version.

If you have a good PC, I'd say get it for that. If you don't, then get it for PS3.

If you have a good PC get it on that. The environments and everything look great in HD and a smooth framerate.

TressFX is pretty hit or miss really. While it looks nice, it clashes with the atmoosphere of the game.

I guess so, yeah. But don't worry, I've been playing the game on PC and it's totally fine from my experience.

Nvidia owners were having issues, the game was optimized for AMD and I think Nvidia got the code fairly late so they didn't have a whole lot of time to optimize their drivers.

As far as which one is better, the PC version is the best version in so many instances. TressFX which is dynamic hair is absolutely staggering how much better it looks. The game runs better, and lest technical issues.

I want to get it on PC badly, but given the US release didn't have a physical Survival Edition with that figurine, and reading on release day the issues the PC version had, I think I'm going to wait until it's down to maybe $30 or so on a Steam sale to nab it.
