No DOOM 3 This Year

Though id Software basically invented the idea of using "when it's done" as a release date, and thus did not specify a release date when DOOM 3 was announced (story), many have been assuming that the game would be available for this year's holiday season (and jcal points out the DOOM 3 E3 billboard did clearly promise this year). Now a report on HomeLAN Fed cites Activision's 2003 release calendar and quarterly financial conference call to gain a bit more clarity on when to expect the highly anticipated shooter sequel. Activision admits that this matter is entirely in id's hands, but that they are not expecting the game this year, and have it "penciled" on their calendars for fiscal Q4 (Jan-March) 2004. Further actual release date delays were gleaned from the proceedings as well, including word that True Crime: Streets of LA is now due in late fall 2003 and that Rome: Total War, console Call of Duty, Quake IV, and Trinity are now all due in Fiscal 2005 (which begins April 2004).

Yup, but that Geforce 3 only has 64 ram of memory and memory is being shared by the whole system, so if a shitty celeron(coppermine) 733 + 64 shared memory will run it and something like XP1700 + GF4Ti4200 + 512 wont then I'll gladly pirate the fucking thing, the whole "optimizations for xbox" thing is bullshit, all they have now are 2(AMD Intella) cpu companies and 2 main gpu companies and 3-4 audio, you dont have to get Savage4 support because the fucking thing wont run it anyway... optimizing isnt the problem it's just companies dont want to hire any testers and lose couple dollars because of the fucking greed.

I'm just wondering if Microsoft didnt slip a few million dollars to Id just to get Doom 3 posponed so xbx version can go gold sooner??
