An alpha build is a buggy piece of shit? Wow, color me surprised.

Build labels have largely lost their meaning though, so many companies misuse them with the public. To be honest I'm not sure how much more polish Day Z could reasonably achieve given how iffy ArmA 2 itself can be at times.

There is a very good chance DayZ standalone will use the ArmA3 engine. How polished the ArmA3 engine will be is anyone's guess, especially since it's not a new engine but rather it's a new version of the ArmA2 engine, just far more polished.

Well after complaining on the official forums and being banned....I have to say... STAY THE FUCK AWAY FROM THIS GAME!

Really, you will be hard pressed to find another more buggy PIECE OF SHIT than Dayz.

Eurotrash like to think they are AAA+++ but reality says otherwise.

Complaining... about the possibility of consoles?

Productive. And I'm sure calling them "eurotrash" only helped the situation.

Hopefully they aren't going to use the ArmA2 engine for the retail DayZ game, or at least heavily modify it or use the ArmA3 engine. This game needs more buildings with interiors. The largest cities in ArmA2 have very few building that you can enter, and the movement in ArmA2 works ok for combat in open spaces, it gets really clunky when you get in any of the few buildings with interiors. You really should be able to go inside a house or something and barricade the doors and windows to protect yourself from zombies and other players.

It's funny in Dayz when you first play and think 'Hey, I can just shut the doors behind me and I'll slow them down' and then realize they just crash right through them or pop in from the ground or walls. Heck, even ladders give the impression that you'll be safe until you realize they have some form of rocket propulsion to climb them...

The ADD console crowd would never play this game. It would go like this:

This game is so stupid! I had to walk for about 10 minutes and then run from zombies and then I died. I HAD TO START ALL OVER AGAIN THIS IS THE STUPIDEST GAME EVER!!!! RAWR WHERE IS MY COD!?

Yeah pretty much this. The console crowd could never go for something like DayZ. It's way too rough around the edges and requires a level of tough shit gameplay that most of them have never seen outside of fighting games and brawlers.

With the rumored 6770 cards and the CPUs I don't think they could handle the ArmA engine at all.

A 6770 works fine with the ARMA2 engine.

The problem is just like STALKER. You have to gut the game to make it a console game because of the gameplay.

You don't have to. Idiot publishers just do.

Sure it could be made on a console, but it shouldn't be made on a console. Not the zombie game I want. PC only;I don't want the dumbed down version. That was Dead Island.
