* At the outset, Moore was really pushing third-party developer support and retail sales. Some very favorable statistics were shown regarding Microsoft’s newest console, the Xbox360. Also, Moore noted the tough battle with the Nintendo Wii, which is one of the biggest surprises we’ve seen this past year. More on the way.
* Jeff Bell now takes the place of Peter Moore. He announces a new controller, which is rather simple, and shows Microsoft trying to appeal to the more casual user. He then continued to show new games from Ubisoft and Electronic Arts.
* NFL star Reggie Bush takes the stage to demo the new Madden 08, which is said to run at two times the speed of last years Madden.
* Jeff Bell announces that more than 7 million users have signed up for Xbox Live, which means Live had a new member every 8 seconds. Several new Xbox Live Arcade games are shown (some of which were already released). Bell afterward announces the Xbox360 is leading the way in digital distributation, with more than a $125 million spent on downloadable content since the 360’s launch.
* Microsoft announces a deal with Disney to bring their library to Xbox Live’s video store.
* Shane Kim, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft Game Studios, now takes the stage. Forza Motorsports 2 to sell more than 1 million titles by the end of this month.

Among the games previewed was Call of Duty 4. Later on, two members of Infinity Ward’s team took the stage to give the viewers a deeper look at Call of Duty 4. It was apparently demoed on the Xbox360, and it seemed to have quite a nice framerate, even during more intense scenes. The COD4 multiplayer beta will be exclusive to the Xbox360.

Wondering if it will be DX10-enhanced for Vista.

On the streaming press video it ran smooth as silk.

07-11-07, 12:55 AM
Well that makes it kinda stupid that Halo 2 & Shadowrun were Vista only now GFWLive will be on XP too.

Well that makes it kinda stupid that Halo 2 & Shadowrun were Vista only now GFWLive will be on XP too.

The Games For Windows brand and the GFW Live service have never been exclusive to Vista, people have just assumed this because the first two GFW live games were Vista exclusives.

In the GFW Live beta there were two separate testing groups, one for Vista and one for XP.

There's a lot of misconceptions about the GFW brand and GFW Live service.

I already got this on the 360 but I saw the E3 video of it for PC with a cool fight against a boss and is supposed to come with 5 new single player levels. I may have to get this for the PC after all.

07-11-07, 06:42 AM
will try the demo first, see if i like the controls. wasn't every impressed with 360 version.

07-11-07, 09:36 AM
Already own it for the 360 but if there is enough new content at a cheap price I'll pick up the superior pc version.

07-11-07, 09:39 AM
I saw the video last night on G4. I almost leapt out of my seat when they said "Gears of War will be available for PC on XP and Vista."

Frag-filled new content. Gears of War will feature locations that are unique to the franchise and the genre. Players will encounter all of their favorite foes from the Xbox 360 version; however, these intense encounters will take place in some new environments and allow players to manipulate the new game modes and technology found only in a Games for Windows title. Boasting three new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer game type, game editor, five new campaign chapters, and DirectX 10support, Gears of War, will challenge and push the limits of the PC gaming experience and provide an unparalleled visual presentation.

New game editor. The game will also feature the all-new game editor, guaranteeing new user-generated content in the future. The Gears of War community will be able to tap their endless creative potential to develop an unlimited number of user-created levels through complete access to the Unreal Editor. Players can now import custom artwork into the engine, create particle systems, scripted encounters, cinematics, and more.

Unmatched online gaming. Gears of War will tap into the power of Games for Windows LIVE™ to deliver online matchmaking for its Gold account members. The service will enable gamers around the globe to connect via their PCs, allowing players to experience individualized matchmaking, view player statistics, earn player Achievements, customize games, and create personalized profiles.

Gears of War Preview (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/gearsofwar/news.html?sid=6174087&om_act=convert&om_clk=multimodule&tag=multimodule;picks;title;1)

From this short demo, we definitely got the impression that Gears on the PC will look better than its Xbox 360 counterpart, given its noticeably smoother frame rate and seemingly higher texture detail. Hoewver, Cliffy mentioned that the game would run on Windows XP as well as Windows Vista, which made us wonder if the game will support DirectX 10. Either way, we look forward to seeing more of Gears of War on the PC.

I hope UT3 has GFW Live support too now this has been announced... it would be stupid if one does but the other doesn't.

We need Crysis to have it too, and one of the achievements being:

"Turtle Torture: Kill an enemy by melee with a turtle"

:D :D :D :p :captnkill:
