They look fantastic. Playing this on a 92" 16:9 widscreen projector setup is going to be gaga. I cannot wait.

Yep, even ome people on the official forums are beginning to worry.

I've pre-ordered Oblivion both for the Xbox360 and the PC.

Expect a close comparison (I hear that with the XBox360 it's possible to save screenshots) as soon as I have them both.

I'm pretty sure most of those shots are from the PC version. Only a few of them are actually in the Xbox 360's native resolution (1280x720), the rest are 1024x576, which isn't an HDTV standard. The strongest evidence of this is between the different UIs: this screen is a 1280x720 image where you can see the L and R trigger indicators on the menu screen, so it's obviously from the Xbox 360 version; yet this screen is at 1024x576 and doesn't show any L/R buttons, indicating it would be from the PC version.

I would like to see how the Xbox 360 version compares to the PC version in a direct comparision, though. Morrowind on the Xbox suffered from a fairly short draw distance and low resolution compared to the PC version, it would be interesting to see if the Xbox 360 version of Oblivion holds up against the PC version this time around.

All I have to say is that the game could be releasing anytime between now and Nov 22 since they announced that its a launch title for the xbox360. Lets hope PC Version goes out the door before the x360 launch!

This bootleg video filmed during X05 caused quite a stir in the official forums:

http://www.gigashare.com/files/embed/601886202.html

Compared to the E3 trailer (which ran on a high end PC) it seems that it lacks of soft shadows and the animations look stiff. Honestly I don't know what's going on. It may be a case of Microsoft pressing the developers to have something playable no matter what the state of the code is.

Despite the low quality of the footage itself there's a huge and evident gap bewteeen what was shown in Amsterdam two days ago and the E3 presentation.

Those are some pretty sweet shots... deffinitely a game I'll have to see in motion though before I decide how good it looks. The water in this shot http://www.gamersreports.com/hosted/...25c2f9f9/9.jpg looks nice but I dont know if its very realistic (or reflective)... everything in that shot looks nice but not quite right. Like the lighting isnt even close to being right. I'll have to see it in motion though.

And I *REALLY* hope I can run the game with at least 8x AF because the lack of anisotropic filtering in those shots is absolutely HORRID. I cant believe people actually take screenshots of games without any AF... the textures look great up close but once they get out about 15 feet they ALL turn to mud

Agreed. Even at 720p PC shots will still look better because you can jack up the AA and AF, the latter which the XBox 360 shots could use.

I must say - gorgeous, but I'm getting a little bothered by the lack of objects doing real time shadowing. I'm surprised at how much I'm noticing it now - games like D3, and even Battlefield 2 (which doesn't do unified light and shadow, but at least all the characters are casting!) have really spoiled me in that regards.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.

They do do real time shadowing in the PC version.
