What does that have to do with anything we're talking about? I was just pointing out to him that maintaining 60fps+ at 1080p on a PC isn't nearly as difficult/rare as he thinks it is, it's rather standard.
A gameconsole is a closed system with set specs that was designed years in advance. A PC is open spec and constantly being upgraded with the latest processor & graphics card. A PC is also much more expensive especially when you happen to have a dual vid or more rig costing hundreds of dollars.
Let's see what a PC can do that costs you only $299..price of a ps3.
Then you can compare.
You couldn't be further from the truth, 1080p is becoming the monitor standard and most PC gamers don't settle for anything less than 60fps.
My monitor resolution is 2048x1152, a notch above 1080p and the last console game which was released to PC which I bought (Street Fighter 4) ran with all settings maxed out (including filters set to 16x) at well above 60fps (I don't remember the number) but it doesn't matter since I play with vsync on which locks at the refresh rate, which is 60. Without the filters on (and vsync off) the game was running at 250fps using max settings.
Games made with consoles as the main focus have relatively low requirements.
