I doubt we'll see id stop developing games in-house any time soon, seems more like they're just trying to break away from their old franchises and start afresh, which is a great move, although it's been a long time coming. We'll prolly see Gray Matter develop the Doom game after this one.

Love the new Gladiator

"Therefore, you, the consumer lost the right to make backups of software, DVDs, etc. That you OWN."

Actually, by buying DVD's, CD-ROMs etc., you are only paying for a license to use that one DVD, CD-ROM etc., you don't actually own it. So, making a copy is like stealing a copy. Making a backup as insurance againt any possible damage that may happen to the disc, or to play in a different format comes under fair use, however, even tho there's many of us that do make a copy for those purposes, the vast majority of people making copies are doing it for illegal purposes, losing a lot of money for film/record/software companies, eventually driving up prices for the consumer.
So although the new protections may be a pain in the butt for those of us just putting our (slightly unofficial) rights to fair use to good use, we're essentially better off, and if you're unable to do something as simple as take proper care of your digital media discs, then that's just to bad.

I do agree that the punishments for piracy are out of control, and something definitely has to be done before they can be allowed to get any worse.

As with any id game, the ETA is "When it's Done", but i'm guessing late November/December, tho i could be wrong.

Someone should open up a betting agency for pc-game release dates.

"PCs and consoles arent that much different. Consoles use set hardware. PCs dont.

So what is to stop game developers making a game purely for nVidia Chipsets? Before you flame listen to the reasoning. It would be a hell of a lot cheaper to buy an nVidia chipset card than to upgrade your entire system."

That makes absolutely no sense. How in hell are you supposed to make a game specifically for a GPU, and no other hardware?
And why are you trying to run Max Payne on a 450Mhz CPU with a Voodoo3?

If you can't afford to have a system that can run Doom3 in ~1.5 years, then don't buy it. This is a GAME we're talking about, there's no need to whine like newbies.
