I'm always curious, what setting on PC would be comparable to playing on console? I had a free code to Bioshock Infinite for PC and played through it, and I felt like the graphics were similar (everything on max). Then I wondered about how - while on High settings - Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and Tomb Raider looked (watched viddys) they looked similiar as well. I dunno if its because Youtube uploads can do justice though.

After playing Bioshock Infinite on the absolute lowest settings at 720p and then watching my girlfriend play it on her PS3... I think it looked better on my laptop... especially the textures. She played at 1080p, or whatever resolution PS3 games actually play at when it tells you 1080p...
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

The console versions of modern games have graphics that are below even PC's low settings

The biggest difference (in my opinion) from PC to Console is that on PC you can get a much higher frame rate with much better looking textures.

I can't tell the difference between the two. CONSOLES WIN AGAIN!

TES IV: Oblivion on XBox 360 looked like PC at medium settings at 1280x720 resolution. The system was only a few months old when it came out. The PS3 version looks even worse.

YouTube absolutely does not do games justice, especially since it's capped at 30 FPS. It also seems to degrade the visual quality of videos.
