An Xbox360 and a PC are totally different things. The only similarities I can see between the two are the USB 2.0 capabilities and the VGA compatibility. PCs use x86 processors by Intel or AMD, but the 360 uses a triple core PPC by IBM. So unless you find some way to convert PPC code into x86 code running on 3 different threads, it's not going to happen and you WILL need a powerful PC to emulate it. 360 also has 3 Vector Units per core (afaik) and if I recall correctly, that's what slows PS2 emulation down so much. The PS2 has 2 and the 360 has 3 (plus they are faster), so you can imagine the immense CPU strain required.
Hey, then what about those quad cores that's been coming out recently? I own a custom PC with 2.4 GH quad-core, GeForce 8800 GT w/ 512MB graphic memory and 4 gigs of ddr rams. I bought this monster computer for a cheap price at Dragon Hills while I was in Korea so i can run Crysis in maximum performance.
But this one prick I know who always goes on and on about how his 360 is so awesome that he orgasms whenever he picks up the controller was dissing my purchase saying that I wasted money on a PC when i could've gotten a 360 ,which is better and more powerful than any PC, for a cheaper price. It is true that 360 is cheaper I admit, however, it seems to me that 360 follows the same format as PCs looking at how it has a proccessor, ram, hard drive and a graphic processing unit. And my computer surpasses 360 in every way! So I guess, the thing that seperates those two things apart is either the operating software, or an extra component exclusively for 360.
I know this is a childish competition that has absolutely no point. But seriously, u guys haven't dealt with this dude. Stubborn as fu**, just keeps on bringing the subject whenever he can. How 360 is so awesome and more powerful than PS3 and PC. And I don't even own a PS3 lol....;;
So, stupid and completely idiotic it may sound, I played along in his childish competition. I showed him that PCs can perform 360 games anyday by running assassin's creed and call of duty 4 (which loaded up faster than his 360 by the way.)
His final argument was that Halo 3's world is so awesome, detailed, realistic, and huge, that a PC can't hardly handle it, which is why it's xbox 360 exclusive...;;;
Look, i know it's completely stupid and childish. But this dude's seriously getting on my nerves and i need to shut him up soon. So, since i have a powerful PC, is there any way for me to mod it or install an emulator so it can emulate a virtual 360?
Never mind, I read FatTrucker's and blueshogun's post. lol. So the processor has to pull off everything including the display adapter and ram's supposed to do? Oh wow, I'll need a PC that is 10 times more powerful than mine to emulate 360. Well, I wish I knew more about these hardware things so i can mod my PC's hardware part to run console games
