I dont even think you can run the quicktime player full screen! Or can you?

Umm...I think the PROGRAM expands to fullscreen, but the videos don't.

In the useful software thread, someone posted a link to a site that has a Real Media and Quicktime subsitute so you can view the files but don't have to sue the ****ty players for both formats.

I dunno...it looks nice for a xbox game, but it's still gonna be the same dissapointing, sucky game pc gamers have been exposed to since 8/3/04. Looks arent everything, doom 3 proves that. Looks beautiful but isnt a drop of fun...personally at least.

Yeah, I've been holding out for the PC release of BloodRayne 2 since I wanted to play it in high res but I finally broke down and bought the Xbox version last weekend. I was pleasantly surprised. Looks almost as good as the demo looks on my PC. In general, I think the graphics look pretty good on the consoles when the graphics (characters or whatever) are fairly large.

I'll definitely give the Xbox version of Doom 3 a go. It'll be nice to play it on the big screen and from the couch for a change.

Hmm, a Google translation says that ID software told them to take the link down, even though the publisher Activision gave it to them. Well, that kinda sucks...reminds me of the Doom 3 pictures that ID had Nvnews.net remove. Oh well, as a consolation (hehe, I made a funny), here's a link to the older E3 2004 trailer of the Xbox version: http://www.gametrailers.com/player.php?id=993&type=wmv. It's a much earlier build of the game and it's a bit more rough around the edges than the newer footage (like the slight pause when the person shoots), but still looks pretty decent.

I just don't like that the lowres textures are alot more obvious in the xbox since there even lower resolution. I will still get it for Coop Goodness!
