    You gotta be kidding me! In-game shots!? Unbelievable. Can't wait.

    Curious to see what compromises will be made to bring this to the XBox - Resolution? Texture depth?

    This game is a major reason why I've passed up on a upgrade (had my eye on a 2500+ Barton and a gig of PC3200) but I'm not going to wait until the fall, see how the Athlon 64's are doing (released in September) and see if I can pick up a little financial aid because the new semester starts :b

    OMFG!! I can't wait until this hits the xbox(assuming it maintains most of its visual fidelity). In 5.1 this game is gonna scare the crap out of me just as the original Doom did way back when. [​IMG]

    That shot ran in CGW about two or three months ago (spread over two pages, no less). I don't know where Gamespot gets off calling it an "exclusive new screenshot" (I guess they mean web exclusive). The interview has lots of interesting info though.

    Carmack also said it would run great on a GeForce 3 when they started developing it.
    Carmack says a lot of things.
    I'll believe it when I see it.

    URT2k3 looks great on the Xbox 16x9 480p but compared to the PC, it doesn't come close.

    This and half life 2 are the reasons I need to build a new PC this year.

    The game is dark!, you get flares and a flash light to see.

    Personally I like games that use shadow effectively.

    But, in multiplayer I think it could be a bad thing. you will have players that just crank up thier brightness to be able to see more than was intended.

    I think the Xbox version of this game will be inferior to the PC. The XBox hardware is just much less capable than a high-end PC. That combined with low resolution (unless it somehow manages 1080i on xbox), will probably make it look quite a bit worse on the Xbox.

    I will be getting the PC version, unless the Xbox version is 1080i or has added content.

    It's not like Carmack is going to come out and say, "Trust me -- you want the PC version. The X-box version will be a watered down port."

    No developer is going to potentially ruin a sale, but I just can't imagine that an X-box version would even be close. Even if they included Live support, there's going to be compromises made.
