Not surprised at all. Just thank god for the developer's tool kit they're shipping the game with and the army of pre-pissed off talented PC modders who will swiftly fix the game.

Consoles! What do you expect!

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim looks almost the same on PC and consoles:

so is crysis 1.

I'm not meaning to single you out on this but the "DX9 only" bitching needs to stop from all the haters. the api is not the problem, the lazy developers using low res textures and world design is the problem.

There are some absolutely stellar looking DX9 games on the market because the developers cared enough to make it look good.

From as much as I've gathered looking at the limited amount of screenshots and video, it's looking something like oblivion with quarl's texture pack and a better draw distance.

Being a PC-gamer I'd much prefer the PC version support DX11 simply cause that'd open so many doors for the modding community.

However, I look at this as an added bonus (the game being DX9)- it's that much more of a guarantee I'll be running it 100% maxed when it comes out. I'm certain it'll look great, not a huge leap above Oblivion, of course- but great none the less and with mods it'll likely look even better. As you stated, DX9 can look absolutely insane... Crysis 1 being a great example. With high-res textures there's a crap ton that can be done with DX9 still. Yes, I'd prefer we all move onto DX11... but in time. Likely with the next gen consoles. Untill then I've nothing against enjoying a well-made DX9 game. It'll look great, it'll run great, win-win all around.
