    Why would you want to play a game that is offered on other gaming consoles on a computer?

    Graphics on that game would be far superior on a PS3, or even a, dare I say, xbox360.. :p

    Because not everyone owns an PS3 or Xbox360. The PC version is also the best version according to ign.com

    Apparently it may be playable on the macbook, refer to this thread http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=277296

    I like playing it on a laptop cuz its portable and when i needed to check something on the internet, its there. I only plan to play this game.. so it would be waste of money to buy an the 360 or ps3 just to play dmc4...

    Because consoles are purposefully built computers. It's like asking why drive a car when you can drive a SUV.

    360 has always been known to have superior graphics to PS3 thus far. Regardless of that, as someone said, there's a thing people always want in an investment like a computer. That is convenience. Having to do online work AND play games is much better than spending 400 more dollars for another system.

    However, I will say that... Macbooks are NOT gaming machines. Macbook Pros are much better for that since it has a dedicated GPU. But Macbooks use Intel GMA X3100 with only 144MB of dedicated RAM for output. That's pretty junky, considering that I see laptops cheaper than Macbook have almost 400 MB of dedicated RAM. (other than that though, technology is relatively the same)

    Not from what I've experienced. Sorry, I'm a fan of Sony regardless.

    Ummm regardless of what? I'm not trying to convince you otherwise.

    It's stone cold fact that the 360 has a graphics edge over PS3 specifically because:

    1. SDKs are much more intuitive for development on 360.

    2. 360 has been out longer with a much more matured development process.


    It's not because the 360 has better specs. PS3 has much better hardware than Xbox360. However, only a fraction of its power has been tapped because of its extreme difficulty to program for it. It's debatable whether or not the 360s unified shader architecture is better than PS3's RSX architecture. But the fact is, is that the Xbox 360 has had an edge over PS3 for some time now. Albeit, it's barely noticeable. But it's there.

    I agree. Honestly, everything Mac sells is way too expensive (maybe iMac is the better buy). You can probably get the same specs on a Toshiba gaming laptop for 700 bucks less than what Mac sells on its laptops. You simply get the luxury of OSX and a nice design.

    chances are it will run. The question is, however, will it perform well enough to be playable (ie more than 20fps)? Probably not.
