Default PC BioShock Outshines 360 Version

The PC version definitely outclasses the Xbox 360, mostly because of the ability to crank the resolution to 1920 x 1200. If you've got a Vista rig with a DX10 card, you can expect some heightened particle effects, crisper real-time shadows, and more dynamic water, but the game looks gorgeous regardless. On our gaming PC running a Core 2 Quad processor with a GeForce 8800 GTX, and 4 GB of RAM, it ran very well, with only a few occasions of seemingly random framerate hitches

so wait, a $2000+ device outperforms a $400 one? Stop the presses

Seriously though, GFX wise, price/quality the XBOX can not be beat at this time, only when it comes down to controlling the game the PC version has a serious advantage with keyboard/mouse

Internet with the laptop, work with desktop ; play games with console. No more headache, more time to golf in the summer, hunt in the fall & winter, travel in spring. That's life.

pffft lazyman... consoles have always been inferior in terms of gameplay, HUD and controls.

PC's is where it's at!

Agreed. Ditched consoles for PC games long ago... I tend to get better value out of it. Why pay $60 for a just released console game when you can get it for $20 on a sale at a local electronics store or $10 new on ebay.

Two steering wheels in front of large LCD screen, play, drink with friends and relatives.
Price, depends on what a person values. UT2003 can be played with older graphic cards and PIII. i.e. my laptop.

Of course I love the tweaks and modifications PC gaming allows but for me it's really all about the controller. Keyboard and mouse all the way.
