Thread: Video Game Os

  1. #1
    OK i was thinking wouldnt it be cool if there was a PC games only OS ??

    The reason i thought about this is because i have checked out the specs of all these new gaming consoles and they are pretty crap compared to PC specs and the reason that they can play them perfectly with bad ass graphics is because they are a machine designed for only the games and dont have to worry about running fkn windows apps and dll's in the back and all that shit.

    But PC's that are higher spec than the ps2 and the xbox play need for speed underground shit house!.

    I have a 1.3ghz duron 512mb ram and a geforce4mx440 and that beats the hell out of the xbox specs and i have to run nfs underground at low settings and at 800x600 and even then it pulsates sometimes.

    Imagine if there was an OS dedicated for just playing PC games ??

    Have %100 of the PC's power just for our PC games.

    If i was going to say to you

    "hey i can run gran turismo 3 perfect on 300Mhz PC" you will tell me to go fuck my self but this is what the ps2 is running.

    So what do you guys think ?

    If their was such an OS for PC's would you buy it ?

    Just think, doom 3 is coming out on xbox and thats only a 733mhz machine.

    That sounds like a good idea, but it would be such an effort for anyone to try, you'd need developer support and a huge team to work on it. After all, developers would have to redesign alot of their games to suit the new OS. Like i said though, good idea...

    I was thinking, would someone be able to modify windows and actually get something like gta vice city running on a 200mhz pc with geforce4 ??

    well would this os be able to run other stuff, because no matter how much you enjoy games , other programs are neccasary , like kazaa itself, while a console may be able to run games better it cant run AIM or kazaa or brose the internet, youd hafta find a way to be able to switch off between OS's.

    Dual booting is quite simple.

    hmm...they used to have dos booted games, that is very similar to what you're saying...but now the games want 3d drawing that only directx delivers. and when microsoft only being the company to give this 3d drawing...they want it to run on their os...This is one of the very many reasons I hate microsoft.
    Only in a computer will I find happiness.

    Actually, i wouldnt mind having two PC&#39;s.

    One for the games and the other for the net, and all that other stuff.

    Build your self a cheap 1Ghz pc and install the gaming OS and youre set

    Only if linux ran win32 without winex or something because im sure someone would have made something like this.

    Yeah thats exactly what im saying

    I dont know why M&#036; or some other company doesnt make something like this.

    Maybe it would put ppl off from consoles

    Not only PC games would rule but imagine when xbox and ps2 emulators when they are running at the speed of the current psx emu&#39;s would be awsome on a gaming OS.

    Shit i dream to much

    I did read the question. did you read the reason why neattairoski suggested this. i quote

    "The reason i thought about this is because i have checked out the specs of all these new gaming consoles and they are pretty crap compared to PC specs and the reason that they can play them perfectly with bad ass graphics is because they are a machine designed for only the games and dont have to worry about running fkn windows apps and dll&#39;s in the back and all that shit."


    Because the specs of the PC far surpass that of the consoles and the consoles dont have to run all the other necessary things that a PCs does , and eat up resources.

    again neattairoski writes

    "But PC&#39;s that are higher spec than the ps2 and the xbox play need for speed underground shit house&#33;.

    I have a 1.3ghz duron 512mb ram and a geforce4mx440 and that beats the hell out of the xbox specs and i have to run nfs underground at low settings and at 800x600 and even then it pulsates sometimes.

    Imagine if there was an OS dedicated for just playing PC games ??

    Have %100 of the PC&#39;s power just for our PC games
    ."

    You can see his reasoning is. so 100% of the power can be dedicated to playing the game and not to other processes, hence you get a game that plays better on lower specs.

    His reasoning is not because the games on PC are not available on a PS2 or Xbox.

    He is talking about SPECS ,not cross platforming
