That's pretty awesome; sounds like the PS3 will give my home theater system a workout;)

Can anyone with the PS2 version of GTA:Vice City verify it supports DTS? I'd never heard of that before.

Edit: Just looked it up; yeah it supports DTS. Interesting that the PS2 can apparently do real time DTS encoding.

The name and address are probably so they can mail you the beta disks, if they choose to do so. Dunno about the phone number, maybe they want to ask you out.:D

I'm surprised you didn't dual boot, Blue. While I'd never use a beta OS as my only OS, I do have XP x64 beta dual booted along with regular old XP. This way I can have an OS that will run all current programs, and an OS to experiment with that can run any 64-bit games/programs.

I've had reasonably good luck with XP x64. Again, it cannot fully replace XP yet, as your bound to find things that don't work with it (i.e. Doom 3, which has an unofficial hack/patch to get it to install under x64).

On the positive side, I've found 64-bit drivers for the important gaming parts of my system (nforce 3 drivers, audigy drivers, ATI drivers). No printing drivers, but I'm not using x64 to print. Additionally, I've had decent luck with games. Most interesting is that some games are being reported to run significantly faster on x64 (I personally noticed Joint Ops runs quite a bit smoother, which I got the idea to try after others were reporting similar improvements).

Anyway, I can't reccommend anyone use x64 as their main OS because it's highly likely some of your software/hardware won't work, but it is a fun secondary OS to play around with (just make sure you stick each OS on separate hard drives or partitions). Now if America's Army, Far Cry and UT2K4 would just hurry up and get 64-bit patches for x64....

Ignoring the fact the game isn't exactly great (I'm being generous), it is interesting in that this is the first time I can remember a game offering features you need a beta OS to take advantage of (maybe that's just because MS is taking it's own sweet time).

I'm just impressed someone finally released a 64-bit game. Hopefully this will motivate a few other software companies (like say Ubisoft with Farcry and Epic with UT2004) to release patches to support Win XP x64 (assuming a 64-bit version offers improvements, which both developers have said is the case with their respective games).

Eh, I can dream.

You're talking about plenty of US citizens there too - there are just as many Christian loonies as there are Muslim.

It'll be tough, but I think I can manage to live without Jerry Fallwell and televangelists.

Any guesses as to what the treat is? All I can think of is some kind of freebie game, like maybe Chaos Gate, or some kind of sneak preview of another game.

On the other hand, it'll probably turn out to be a lame screensaver, wallpaper or something that doesn't really qualify as "a very special treat... that you will have to see for yourselves."

I paid $75 for Logitech's wireless keyboard and MX700 mouse combo, and am quite happy with it.

You got a pretty good deal. I paid $70-80 for the MX 700 alone when it first came out. Before that, I had the original MS Intellimouse Explorer Optical which cost $70-ish.

If you don't want to spend $80 on just a mouse (or are perfectly happy with your MX700 as I imagine you are), it's no big deal. I give Logitech a year or less before they come out with a combo of the MX1000 and the new keyboard the article mentions.

Although the battery power gauge built right on to the mouse is a nice feature that can come in handy. But still, not worth $80!

To be fair, it also offers a 21(!) day period between recharges, is more accurate, and looks to be even more comfortable than the MX700. It also has more buttons and looks to be a better overall setup. I obviously haven't tried it yet, so I may be totally wrong about the button setup and comfort though.

I never thought I'd see the day when gamers at Blue's were actually supporting MS gouging gamers.

It's only gouging if you actually paid for your latest MS upgrade. Not everyone running XP (or 2K) bought it. *ahem*

On first glance, the new drivers appear to have made the game slightly smoother for me. I'd guess I'm getting a few fps more on average now, and I'd say it's more that my lows aren't as low, as opposed to the highs being higher. I could very well be crazy though (I blame it on Doom).

For what it's worth, I got 29.2 fps on timedemo 1 with the beta driver (I didn't run the bench with the old driver... sorry). I'm running in 1280x1024 high quality.

Athlon 64 3200+

128MB Radeon 9800 Pro

The best part about Playboy: The Mansion is throwing kick-ass parties, and having cool celebs like Carmen and Tom make the experience more realistic for gamers.

Since when is having Carmen Electra showing up at your party a realistic experience?

id Software have announced that McDonalds(TM) are the official hamburger partners for Doom3. "You won't believe how scary this game is while eating a Happy Meal," said Ronald McDonald

What a McDonalds fanboi--everyone knows Carmack is in bed with Ronald. Anyway, the next version of the Burger King Kids Meal should provide just as scary an experience as a Happy Meal, while the Big Kids Meal should far surpass any experience a Happy Meal can offer.

1. Based on what I've seen/heard at a number of different sites (including commments here), ATI's Open GL Drivers are supposed to be crap. Hopefully, these benchmarks will give ATI a good reason to work on the Open GL side of drivers instead of focusing purely on the Direct 3D side.

2. I expect ATI's future drivers to see significantly bigger performance increases in Doom 3 than future drivers from nvidia. This is because ATI can most likely claim a significant increase in Doom 3 performance just by improving their Open GL drivers to the point where they are more on par with the quality of nvidia's drivers (i.e. ATI needs to make their Open GL drivers as good as their Direct 3D drivers are).

3. You need a 512MB+ card to run in Ultra Quality according to id. This means no matter what card you buy now, you'll still be buying nvidia/ati's latest $600 video card 6 months from now if you have to run Doom 3 at the highest settings possible.

4. "Doom 3 has settings that will make the game look even better on hardware that doesn't exist yet (beyond just upping the resolution, like in most games)." - quote from Robert Duffy, lead programmer, id software in the sept 2004 issue of PC Gamer.

Yeah, I'm definitely waiting before I run out and buy a new card (of course I've got a Radeon 9800Pro, so it's not like I'm stuck with a GF MX).
