Ok so I am trying to decide what I should get it for PC or Xbox 360. I am fairly good with PC controls (KB/Mouse) but not so with a console (Think Turok on N64 was my last FPS console). Looking for any input on how the controls play on a console.

I know Xbox probably wont look as good as PC version (depending on system of course) or the PS3 version (I assume PS3 has the better graphics core and look than Xbox 360). I am wanting to get more console time in since I have spent money on consoles (hope to get PS3 next year sometime) and curious if its worth getting CoD on xbox 360 or if the control scheme is just a bitch? I don't like using controls on computer and cannot play games like assasins creed on it lol.

I have read up on online play and for some reason the PC players bitch alot about it and Xbox Live guys like it. I don't understand why as I have yet to play against others on a console. Is Xbox live good for online gaming or should I stick with PC online gaming?

Anyways thanks for any advice and if you play the game let me know on what and maybe we can hook up

Anyone with half a brain and a mouse will beat console kiddies with noobsticks all day long at fps, there is no comparison to the precision and response of a mouse vs. a controller.

As far as graphics go, all 3 versions will probably look the same, the difference will be what's available to download online as updates. If one were better, it would be the computer I would bet because of the hardware limitations of the consoles, but... keep in mind, a 360 or playstation on a HD tv looks every bit as good as the PC version unless you have a monitor that will run higher than a 1920 x 1080 resolution. You can also plug in a mouse and keyboard on these systems as well, although I've never tried it personally.

For actual online "play", I would say the PC definitely takes the cake in connection quality/stability and performance.

PC typically has all the patches and it's basically free to download them. And you can usually find someone nice enough to hack an .exe that will give you all the addons you want.

Xbox 360 has the xbox live service which I've never NOT paid for, so I'm not sure how it works if you don't have a subscription, but Xbox 360 has usually more Marketplace stuff and addons.

Play Online from Sony has this as well, but I'm not sure if it's better or worse really. I would wager that Xbox probably edges out the Sony online store for most items that are compatible on both systems.

This part confused me a little, are you saying you DON'T like pc controls? or did you mean to say you don't like the noobstick controls on the box?

LOL Using a controller on a PC. Non keyboard and mouse style. Games like Assasins creed and Prince of Persia I cannot play keyboard and mouse style. I can only play those types of games with an actual controller

I think I will end up getting the PC version. I know there is more to the game than say CSS but I really couldnt understand how the fuck I would play CSS with an xbox controller which I assume is a noobstick lol. This psot in turn leads me into Xbox Forums and my RROD =p

And vice-versa for FPS games. I could never understand how so many people can play the fps games with a controller. Guess if you started with a controller, you wouldn't have a problem.

Starting on PC since way back in the day for FPS, I never understood how anyone could play one without a mouse and keyboard. Fast forward 10-15 years and I can do it just fine. It's one of those things that sounds retarded at first but grows on you. Like Hiko.
