....Majesty. Does anyone remember that one? It sounded so cool and ambitious when it was announced until I read the EA part..then it was obvious it was going to hell. Hope another, accomplished developed (Microsoft or Sony) pick up on the idea, its a really original concept. The whole idea of a game that involves the user into a world with them recieving faxes and phone calls and the like.

Oh well, I bet the EA execs are wondering what happened to the MILLIONS they invested into online gaming ("the next big thing") and have now lost.

Nefilm, I am an XBOX fan, no f**king way am I getting it, well, at least not buying it. This is going to be a download IF and ONLY IF its worth it, which it will NOT be.

Repay their fans? Excuse me, they gave you Marathon and "its sequals", you paid them, they owe you nothing.

You big Bungie fan you, your such a big fan of them that you are publicly abusing them for making great games. Just because your such a cheapskate and can't afford an XBOX and/or $50 for a PC game. Its $50, geez, and you call them arseholes.

But then again, you probably visited a few FTP's for your copy of Bungie gaming goodness and will be doing the same for PC/MAC Halo, regardless of what you say here.

This has probably been said before, but I have an XBOX and bought it for Halo. Don't get me wrong, I like PC gaming, I simply want to play a wider variety of games. To me, Halo was great for its time. However, I think that by the tijme the PC version is released (40% done after 6 months, so in another 6-8 months) it wil be surpassed by not only Unreal 2 and others, but also by its child, Halo 2.

When I first saw Halo, when it was for PC/MAC I knew that I was going to do whatever it took to play that game, but to me, Halo 2, Brute Force, Doom 3, they are all going to surpass Halo when it is released for PC. They have better graphics, more innovative gameplay, etc. I think it is a great move to port Halo to PC, but I think it would have been wiser to port Halo 2 to PC, not Halo 1. Maybe this will happen as well, but by the time Halo 2 is on PC/MAC, bigger and better things will be available (not to mention launch titles [Halo 3, anyone?] for the PS3/XBOX2/[insert-childish-nintendo-name here])

Just my 2 cents. Hope no one takes my opinion to heart.

I would say DX9...most games do not properly support it yet and little glitches like that are bound to come up until full, non-beta drivers are released and game developers have made the switch.

Big gun fights? Having finished the game on XBOX, there are VERY few big gun fights. for me (PAL XBOX), the game runs fine, a constant 60FPS regardless of the graphics on screen. better than halo during the big battles, but halo was pushing around more poly's for the outdoor scenes,s o yeah.

haven't tried the pc demo yet, will later today.

Fredrickson, calm the fuck down! If you think you can do better, go and start your own site. He made one mistake and you start insulting him, grow up.

A friend of mine was considered the luckiest guy alive when his dad brought him a new 500mhz P3 PC with an SB! Live and a 32mb TNT2, with 128mb RAM.

I remember the days on dial-up when I would download a 16mb demo, which would be considered huge! Now, on average, game demos are around 50MB or more, its pretty bad for those still on dial-up.

The point I am trying to make is that some people have said/suggested on this forum that pornography makes women objects. The reverse should work, right?

I must thank you for putting the words in my mouth, but you are an idiot and a child at the same time.

Its very hyprocritical of the women to the world to cry out about their treatment as objects. In Sydney, there was an ad one or two years back that was advertising bear and showed a womens breast and all these womens right groups spoke out and tried to stop it. The other day, I noticed a billboard advertising a womens perfume with the image of a naked man. You didn't see anyone speaking out about that.

Go figure.

I only asked for someone to name some of the differences between the XBOX version of SC and the PC version. 24 replies later, we have another console war. Can someone PLEASE answer my original question?

Oh, if I may have my 2 cents. I really, really, really enjoy PC games, games like WC3, UT2k3, Half-Life, etc. But what I was sick of was the upgrade cycle I was locked in. In Australia, an XBOX, 3 games (Halo, JSRF and Sega GT 2002), DVD Remote and two controllers will cost you AU$444, around USD$230, which is damn cheap. I got XBOX when it was released in March, but when the prices came down got 2 free games and a controller, which was cool. Anyway, I have a 1ghz AMD Athlon with 256mb RAM and a Kyro 2 graphics card, along with an SB Audigy. That can play all current games, albeit slowly. I was faced with upgrading my PC (another $1200) or half that for a new gaming system, were I didn't need to worry about upgrades, except for a new XBOX 2/PS3, which would still be cheaper than all the PC upgrades purchased before then. I like being able to lie down on my couch, having fun (which is what gaming is all about), with some beer and corn chips right by my side. I don't like the idea of having to sit upright in a chair in a cramped room to play games.

I am not saying that consoles are better than PC's. I love both formats, but when all the games that I want on PC are coming out on XBOX, the choice is so much clear cut for me. I use my PC for web browsing, MSN/AIM and work, thats it. The XBOX has the games I want to play and then some, games like HALO or Unreal Championship or Deathrow, these are games I want to play. I still enjoy PC gaming, I just enjoy XBOX gaming more. For others, I am sure it is vise versa. Games are meant to be fun (why I returned Hitman 2) and this is where most flame wars start and stop.

What are the differences between the PC version and the XBOX version? I have an XBOX and love the game, it stands next to Halo, the gameplay is unreal (no pun intended), the graphics and lighting are second to none (except Doom 3). The only differences I would imagine would be maybe some extra levels or graphics tweaks or multiplayer. Can someone fill me in?

BTW: Buy an XBOX and you get great games like this. Buy a PC and you are stuck in a permanent upgrade cycle. No flames please, just stating my opinion. Its why I bought an XBOX. I was sick of upgrading my PC every time a new game with better graphics came out.

Ok, my first post...
Anyway, I am gonna say right now that I have a leaked copy. In fact. I heard about it pretty much the moment it came out (I was on IRC at the time) and I rushed to download it (from IRC; don't e-mail for details).

Now, I love what I see from Doom 3. I had some doubts about the graphics, about them being inaccurate, however I have played the game and I have seen the graphics. They are simply unbelievable, I will say that.

I object to what some people are saying. The people saying that it is because of people like me that games are rushed. On the contrary, I found leaked games (such as Quake 3) to come out extremely polished. Tribes 2 was leaked only at beta, however even then it didn't work unless you had an account. Tribes 2 was the victim of poor support from a poor publisher.

I think leaking early versions of games is damaging; I am NOT saying it is right, by any means. BUT there is also a flipside. It creates more publicity, it allows developers such as id to see get feedback. No doubt many people who have the leak have in fact sent their thoughts to id and no doubt it will make it a better game, which is something to benefit us all. Personally, even before the alpha I knew that I was gonna grab Doom 3 (for XBOX), however seeing the alpha has only made me want it more and it has only made me tell my friends how good it is.
