    Does anyone know which console UBI is using for the "base" version of this game? I was under the impression that they were starting development on Xbox first and then porting, but the GC release day is a month earlier.

    So, anyone know which version of this game is supposedly going to be the "best"? HD support is a requirement.

    I can hardly wait, I consider Rayman 2 to be the finest platformer ever(yes, better than Mario64), and this new one is looking gorgeous. Even better, the MSRP on this is $39.99. I'd pay $100 for it.

    I'm pretty excited about this game as well.

    I haven't heard much about which platform it was developed for first, although I have a feeling they were pretty platform agnosting in their development.

    It comes out for PC, PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, and Gameboy Advance all within the same month or so.

    Hmmm... This may make me break down and buy a new console (that, and getting a new baseball game). I didn't like Rayman 2 quite as much as the original, but it's still a fun, nifty-looking series.

    The GameCube version has a GBA-connectivity feature that is exclusive to that platform. Other than that, all 3 versions are identical AFAIK.

    I think it does. I read this either in a magazine or on a website, I'll see if I can find this somewhere.

    If you guys wanted to play the best looking version of Rayman 2, you should have played it on the PC. Imagine playing it with a resolution of 1024x786. The results are simply stunning.

    Right now, I'm planning on buying the Xbox version. The only way that I will consider the GCN one is if it is in 480p.

    Although I loved R2, I'm going to "wait and see" on this one. The addition of voices by Billy West and John Leguizamo is a horrible move, IMO. The gibberish voices in the last game were a large part of the charm. I just can't imagine Rayman speaking english, and I don't really want to, either.

    I'm also really looking forward to this game. Right now it's a toss-up between the Xbox and GameCube versions for me (Xbox will probably have the best graphics, but the GC-GBA connectivity might be cool enough for the GameCube version to win out).

    I'm up in the air as well.

    All I know is that this will have some kick-ass gameplay like R2 did and I'll enjoy it no matter what.

    I'm in. Probably for the GC version as I won't be able to wait.
