Right, since obviously it's worth it to console gamers to spend four times the cost of a console on computer upgrades just to play one game a few months earlier

X-box owners will be busy playing Halo 2 during the holiday season anyway

LOL - my little tv is a HDTV 42" widescreen.

I don't get the whole PC vs. console debate as I game on my Xbox as well as my PC. I may get that game if it supports some form of online coop. If not, then I will pass on it.

It would take me months to get used to playing FPS games on a console controller, and I still wouldn't be as good at it.

I have seen some pretty amazing graphics on modern made-for-console games though.

Uhmm since when have XBOX owners been kids? I'm 31. I own TWO XBOXs You're obviously younger than me. Stupid comments like this don't annoy me. They prove that people are capable of being ignorant AND stupid at the same though:P

Please don't tell me you've played DOAX at HDTV resolutions.

What resolution would that be for DOAX? Soul Calibur 2 had 480p in 16:9 AR and 720p, but in 4:3 AR only.

I'm pretty sure DOA:XBV only supports 480p (which is like 850x480 in widescreen, right?), there's only a couple dozen Xbox games that supports 720p or 1080i. Too bad, I think DOA:XBV could've benefited most from high-resolution...you know, those backgrounds are just so pretty

And yes, the Xbox version of Doom 3 is supposed to support online coop. Maybe that's part of the reason for the delay?

More likely the publishers are looking to maximise profits by putting some delay between the PC and XBOX releases. Remember that the first round of screenies were from the XBOX version. Knowing Vicarious Visions' performance in other titles (THUG for example) they've never been late yet.

I am mainly a PC gamer however, I have an XBOX and XBL acount from day 1 and do play xbox ga,es from time to time. I enjoy both as I have always said each offers a different gameplay experience for me. Both enjoyable in their own way. Now if you asked me which I prefer or which I would pick if I had to choose, then that would be easy, PC all the way, but I have NP with Xbox players or console gamers as a whole. I think we (all us gamers) contribute to the whole, which is advancing game tech farther every year since the industry is seeing tremendos growth. Even out pacing the movie industry for the last few years worls wide. So I say props to all gamers on any platform!

I say there's enough gaming love to go around, even though we PC gamers usually get the short end of the stick. I say play games on whatever you like, but I could never see myself actually playing a console.. it'd probably feel too weird, as I'm quite used to my kb&mouse. Heck, I haven't actually owned a console since I was a kid playing Asteroids on my old Atari..
