Been looking forward to this one forever but couldn't pick it up.... at the same time, having played it a bit on PC, yeah it looks awesome, but the gamplay isn't anything so special... maybe not worth a $50 purchase I dunno.
But I played the Xbox version at E3 last year and yeah there's no denying it's a spectacular looking game, and definatelys shows a good example of just how much more powerful the Xbox is than the PS2 (sorry Dave but believe it or not the GC and Xbox are actually VERY close in their graphical abilities, though you don't see it get put to the test as much). I agree that this is even more of a puzzler that they would be the first to rush out a new system when there is still quite a bit of potential left in the current one. A LOT of potential, just getting thrown away in the name of being the first guys with a new system out... stupid. I think another year or two could have seen some really amazing games come out of the Xbox yet.....

I mean come on CG graphics is like what... The Incredibles kinda thing... you really think the new systems are gonna look THAT good... NO WAY!
I think if you looked on a screenshot/still image basis... if you took a game like Riddick or Doom 3 on the Xbox, I dont think the next gens will look THAT much better. In a still image. But once you see it in motion, I think you will see a game look as good as Riddick or Doom, but with way more detail going on, and with way more stuff able to be onscreen at once (more enemies, more effects), but with a framerate that stays butter smooth... so in motion I think it will be a big difference.
But no, I dont think it would be anything like comparing the leap from PS1 to PS2... more like from DC to PS2 or PS2 to Xbox, maybe.
