Lightbulb DOOM3 ready to ship?

At idsoftware.com there have been many updates, including a link to the DOOM3 site and to pre-order it. Also, there's a hint of DOOM3 being ready to go gold and launch soon, if I'm not mistaken.

Here's a snip from the news at idsoftware.com:

Don't feel like waiting for the delivery guy to show up with your shinny new id game? You can still purchase most of our games and play them as fast as you can download them. Just look for the games with "Download Only" written next to the "Buy Now" button. The downloads are small, and the games are great!

Be sure to check back soon, as we will be going live with several new products over the next few weeks!

It'd be quite a happy surprise for a game to come out ahead of it's pushed-back schedule, but I ain't holding my breath.

well, babbages and eb just might be conservative with their release date, so they dont have any pissed of gamers when the game doesnt ship when the say... both of them say they dont have release dates from id

also, i think all the media coverage is strange... first all the gamer mags, then the official site, and new ss's... i find it strange they are just starting to hype again when the game is supposed to be released in april

something tells me it's gonna go gold in a few weeks, since the sentence I put in bold says something of launching NEW products. Also the pre-order! And the coverage. And the interviews. And...And...it all fits into place. Looks like it's time to meet our DOOM, and the 3rd time's always a charm!

I've seen the pre-order boxes showing up at Best Buy, and that usually means a game is within a couple weeks of release. I'm not going to pick one up, though until I know the game has gone gold.

If it does go gold soon, that would be great - a nice sneak attack by id to counter HL2.

I think ebworld.com had the official box and its not up anymore. It was all a cool black and just said DOOMIII, now they picture has changed. Anyway I think it will come sooner than later. I think these guys will try and get the jump on Valve.
