How much superior will a Doom 3 running on a PC look than on an Xbox?

Consider 480p/i vs. 1600x1200. Granted, I'd rather play games on my couch in front of my big screen than my desk but there is no comparison here no matter what some of the morons say (who seem to keep quoting that the Xbox version will be the same as the PC version). If Doom3 can push cutting edge PC hardware then there is no way an Xbox can play anything but a very graphically diluted version. That said if you turn off all the goodies on your card and in the program and run it at 480x640 then yeah - aside from frames per second they might be pretty comparable.
|For those of you that think you are not going to have the hardware that you need to play DOOM 3, the fact of the matter is that many of you will be just fine, although an upgrade may still be in your future. As of this afternoon we were playing DOOM 3 on a 1.5GHz Pentium 4 box with a GeForce 4 MX440 video card and having a surprisingly good gaming experience. Even a subtle jump to an AMD 2500+ with a GeForce 3 video card that is two years old will deliver a solid gaming experience that will let you enjoy the game the way id Software designed it to be. That fact alone should let many of you know that you will not be left behind in experiencing DOOM 3.|

I am actually building a PC right now and am debating which system to get Doom 3 for. While it's very tempting to get it for the PC, the XBOX will have a co op mode via XBOX Live, which is also tempting. I'll most likely go with the PC version as it will look a lot nicer :)

I guess you missed the title and topic of the thread, then. But thanks for playing along at home. If you don't understand that people are just airing their opinions, what are you doing on a message board? It'd get real quiet if we all kept our opinions to ourselves, eh?
And I still hold that only using your thumbs instead of your entire hands is like playing with one arm behind your back. Sorry to bring physiology into it. It's my opinion, with a liberal sprinkling of facts to back it up.
DTSfreak: ouch. You might be ready for an upgrade ;)

|I remember when you could play Quake 3 on the Dreamcast with PC gamers online. It was a complete turkey shoot, I mean a virtual shooting gallery. The Dreamcast guys did not have a chance.|
