That trailer looks to have higher resolution textures and it actually looks like the PC version.

No. It's old, that means the graphics are outdated and you cannot play.

I completely understand what you mean. And I think you're prioritizing just right. Besides, it'll be the same game in a few weeks/months anyway - there is no rush.
1989 Buick LeSabre. Thanks Slawter. There are times I'm tempted to pickup another full time job just to double my income. I'd have far less time available for what I'd enjoy but money would become much less of an issue.

Well, it will be 9pm PST on Thursday.
