Quote:
FlatOut Ultimate Carnage is rebuilt from the ground up and specifically developed to take advantage of the additional feature sets and improved processing ability of the Xbox 360 to produce an entirely new, breathtaking FlatOut experience.
Quote:
An email announcing the North American release date confirms our earlier prediction, Flatout: UC is indeed coming to the PC.

Now if you have no idea what new features will be included in Flatout:UC that wasn't in Flatout2 heres a list :
Quote:
*FlatOut Ultimate Carnage include 12 cars racing on screen up from eight in FlatOut 2
*Five all-new single player and two all-new multiplayer game modes (over the Xbox Live online game service)
*Over 8,000 dynamic objects per track up from 5,000 in FlatOut 2
*Widescreen High Definition resolution (720p)
*Dynamic lighting and shadowing all with proper real-time environment mapping on all vehicles
*Downloadable content via Xbox Live (X360 feature)
*20,000 polygons per car up from 7,500 in the previous generation
sounds interesting! hope to see PC screens soon!

Do the cars really need any more polygons? I mean, they're nice as they are. I think better textures, more "stuff" in the maps to give the maps more life, etc.

It really is an upgraded version of Flatout 2 (I have the 360 version), I'm glad I skipped the PC version (of Flatout 2) because of Starforce. I heard previously there were 30k dynamic objects on some tracks though. The car polycount isn't that impressive (PGR4 has 90k polygons a car, GT5P has 200k polygons per car), but the shaders are really nice, nice sparkle paint effects. It really is a nice looking game overall, trackside detail is great.

The new Burnout is very different though and it's good too, it's now a freeform open world racing game, where the previous Burnouts were like this game. Very nice of EA to step out of the way for them.

It seems to me the number of console games ported to PC has remained about the same. Only thing is lots more Western developers making console games these days.
