I have yet to see pics or footage of the pc version. I recently bought the 360 version and like it. I would have waited to see how the pc version turned out but I get to play online with my brother (who is a console only guy) over xbox live.


I do want to see how the pc version turns out. Is it done by the same team as the 360 version or will it turn out different ala GRAW?? I own both GRAW's (they are more than different enough to own both) and would pick up the pc version if its different and good.

Guys, don't let Lockdown sour your opinion of this. Just take a look at the 360 reviews.

I think it's odd how the game is supposed to be out in 8 days, yet there's been absolutely zero media for it, no PC exclusive screens or videos, no PC Devs posting on the forums. On the Ubisoft forums there's all sorts of conspiracy theories that Ubisoft purposely wants the game to fail so they can drop PC gaming or something lol. In any case i'll probably get it too because like K007 said, not much else to buy for the end of the year.

I'll wait for people to write their opinions on it. I don't want another Splinter Cell: DA.

I wonder if you'll need a g80 to apply AA and HDR

Likely... UE3 has support for full HDR with FP precision.

If its as good as or better than RavenShield, then I'll get it.

I've noticed this quite allot lately. If a game has any kind of 360 counter part the PC version gets absolutely no coverage at all. I highly doubt it has anything to do UbiS dropping PC's I don't think that will ever happen. But I remember back when I played allot of console games and I would be reading mags and looking at media on line and the shots and vids would always be from the PC counterpart, it's just the other way around now. It's obvious they will always shine the light on the better version. Gamespot shows the exact same screenshots for 360 and PC. Almost every single other time this has happened, the PC version has turned out to be lower quality for whatever reason. GRAW, SCDA, NFSMW, TRL, Tiger woods, Boiling point. It could be they just don't want to take $$ away from the 360 marketing but I for one will wait for everyone’s reviews on here, I honestly smell another bad port, UE3 or not.

When a developer/publisher is multiplatform they usually only put most marketing behind the systems that will bring them the most profits. The console versions of the game will probably sell more then double of what the PC version. You look at reports and see the difference between a top selling PC game and that of a top selling console game.

Agreed, I'm not going to knock the game till it's out. I really hope they have done a quality job on this one, Lockdown was such a letdown, Aha ahaha. I do really wonder why we are only seeing one set of shots and not confirmed separate shots from the PC. Just makes me wonder.

The lack of news on the PC version can't be a good thing.

If this is true, it's not going to look good or run well. What a disappointing entry for UE3 on PC.

Hey SJA06, thanks for the link but try not to post mini links people are scared of them.

Rainbow Six Vegas on PC exists: I saw it!
Tuesday December 5, 2006 at 14. 40, by Dr.Loser

I finally received version PC of Rainbow Six Vegas in order to write my test which will be published in the next number of Joystick(??bad translation). All that I can currently say to you, it is that the play requires a gross config with a chart 3D managing the PS3. I currently test it with Core 2 Duet and X1950 and I obtain 25-50FPS with these graphics:

The gameplay is the same one as on Xbox 360: very arcade, but not bad for as much. Rainbow Six Vegas will leave on PC on December 14 at the price 50 euros.

25-50 on an 1950 doesnt sound to bad considering its UE 3.0, I wish he said what resolution it was being played at though.

Are you kidding me? Those graphics look like pure unedited craptastic ass. HL2 graphics are better than that and he would get 200fps+ on his machine with the Source engine. There are many games that look better than that on PC and that run great on the X1950.
