    This game is really starting to look fantastic! Actually, some of my old colleges say that the best part of the game can not be seen, the real time 5.1 blows away the visuals.

    I can't wait to play this game...on PC!
    J/k...I mean, I'd certainly prefer it on PC (as it would no doubt control better) but it's the only game I'll initially purchase with my Xbox.

    Halo and Fuzion Frenzy are why I purchased a full complement of controllers to go with my Xbox.
    A friend of mine has also said that the story and the sound greatly surpass the visuals.

    Those shots look good, but they are probably stills from a dev kit and high res. I would like to see some video of this game on a crappy 13" TV and see if its still as good as it is with a great setup.

    I do hope the game looks that good. To be honest, I am a bit skeptical because there are practically no jagged edges in those pictures. We'll find out soon enough.
    I do agree that this will be a first-rate game, though. It's kinda too bad that interest dipped in the game so much since it went to Xbox, though. (at least it seems that way to me...anybody disagree?)

    If Morgan was going to buy an X-Box to play on a fuzzy 13-inch tv then I suppose it is a logical idea, but given that its the only one without a hi-def or VGA output I'd recommend leaving the 13-inch tv for the PS2, and put the Dreamcast and X-Box on the decent monitor that will take VGA input [​IMG]
    Actually, given how unplayable Half-Life was when I tried it through the S-Video output of my PC card (the crosshair was almost invisible and dark areas were just a mess of grey) I'm really glad that Halo is looking so multi-coloured. While some may have fancy connections for their consoles to top-notch televisions, if the average consumer at launch can't see what they are doing then there will be trouble.
    (insert GBA light gag here, no doubt)

    I would like to see a GCN running on a crappy 13" TV, too. I'm just saying that some games will look good in screenshots, but until I see it running on a crap TV with nothing special like 5.1 or HD, all I have to run on a game is what I hear about how it plays (which is more important to me than how it looks). So far, I have heard great things about Halo and Rogue Leader, but I would like to see each of them running on a crappy setup before I decide which looks better.

    Although those Halo shots are tasty and this is a game I *AM* looking forward to, IMO, nothing on XBOX is a drool enducing as DOA3....

    While those shots do look very good, they don't look like anything remotely close to gameplay screen shots. So I don't think you can judge anything by them.

    I'm not starting a flame war, but I think Rogue Leader beats out this game for the pure fact that its Star Wars The Movie: The Game. Graphically its really good (Halo will probably end up better due to hardware) but nothing can beat out the gameplay of Star Wars games (excluding a few of the PSX ones, but all the Nintendo ones were great).

    Actually when you think about it, Lucas Arts has a pretty poor record for publishing really good games. Jedi knight and Dark forces are my favorite out of the bunch. Rogue Squadron looked good but wasn't all that fun to play and almost all of the episode 1 based ones seem to be total flops. Just because its based on Star Wars doesn't automatically make it a killer app. Movie based games very rarely make good video games and vise versa. Will Rogue Leader live up to the hype? Maybe, looks like it will...but I'm not going to bet $270 on it. Oh course the above is strictly my opinion so feel free to completely disagree with me. [​IMG]

    Based on my experience, I have loved all of the N64 Star Wars games I have owned (I have all of them besides Battle For Naboo). Since RL is in the same vein, and the last bunch of Star Wars games have been really good, I assume it will be good. I didn't say it had better graphics, but that I would rather play RL because of its gameplay than Halo (which only has better graphics, not much is known about its gameplay, at least I don't know much about either game's gameplay).
    Where did you get $270? Buying a GameCube, Rogue Leader, a second controller, and a memory card is less than $300. I would rather gamble $300 on all that than on just a console (like the XB).

    Maybe you should just enjoy your GCN and leave the Xbox people alone. [​IMG]

    I support all of the consoles, since I will be getting each of them. Anything I have said bad about the XB is fact (like poor first and second party exclusive support) or is not important (like its size and how it looks). I haven't said that it will suck or be bad or anything like that because I don't know that. All I know is that it does not appeal to me because of its software lineup.
