    Everything is really shiny? I've noticed that on a lot of Xbox 360 games. It's either too shiny or plastic coated.

    Other than that, they're screenshots. It's a racing game. How much different is 3 compared to 1 & 2? I mean the gameplay.

    No, there are a number of different camera views you can toggle through. And you can swivel the camera while you're driving using the right thumbstick.

    PGR3 and CoD2 are in close competition for my favorite 360 game so far...

    Open you eyes. The car model are the best ever. It put GT4 to shame. Each car has 80k polygones. I have GT4 at home and the car model doesn't compare.

    It was taken with a digital camera. It's not even a direct capture. Of course it's going to be blurry. Do yourself a favor, go to Best Buy, take the X360 controller at the kiosk and pop-up the PGR3 trailer. You are going to understand what i'm saying.

    Its total rubbish when people say 360 isnt next gen, i saw it in store today and it is very much next gen, the graphics are outstanding and that is saying something, as if you ask me the xbox still looks pretty damn good, games like Halo 2 and Doom 3 look unbelievable for a machine from 2001,

    so to be next gen then it has to have good graphics? in that case my desktop PC has been next gen for over a year now :p

    Next gen to me means good graphics (bottom of the list, im a gameplay whore), new controller features, medium can store more than previous gen medium.

    You have to try the little game called Hexic HD. Made by the guys who created Tetris. Went to bed way to late to play that game.

    Camera shots of console games always look like shiat to me, regardless of how they look in person. So, meh.

    Besides, the truth about the graphics power of this (or any of the other consoles) won't be known until later in its lifetime. That's how its always been.

    Well, seems pretty impressive to me. Though i didnt really doubt that the X360 didnt have much graphical Oooomph.

    We'll see how it goes... I think i might wait for the PS3 and REV to arrive and then pick a console. :)

    As I've been saying; most of the 360 launch titles are PC/current gen ports (Call of Duty 2, King Kong) or games that started development on GameCube or XBox (Kameo, Perfect Dark). That's why it doesn't look so good. Games that were ground-up designed for 360 are the ones that will look next gen. Like PGR3.

    I have PGR3 and can attest to the above screeenshots falling well short of what one can expect to see on even a mid-level 23" HDTV. One of the most outstanding things to me about the tracks is the variety of detail which is crammed into every stretch or turn of every street in every city. Of course this is tastefully done, for there are several stretches with more sparsely distributed architecture, such as those of the Nuerbuergring.

    PGR3 has some next-gen gameplay features, but my time spent here addressing unfounded arguments would be better spent actually playing the games.

    I just returned the $29 foldup chair which I bought at the sporting goods store next to the Best Buy where I camped out monday night, and applied that money to the purchased of Condemned, which is about to be ripped open the minute after I hit "post".

    Does anyone know what kind of Caddy that is? My guess is a Cien ;)

    I didn't like PGR (oversteer in a F/F Mini? riiight :rolleyes: ), and I didn't even try 2. I'm waiting for Forza 2 :D Man, I still love that game.

    None of the demos in store can even do the X360 justice as it would shine in HD, and I am not sure a store like Best Buy or even WalMart would have this demo on an HDTV set for consumers to try out before buying. I could be wrong though. 1080i, HDMI and widescreen crazy. ;) :)

    Some of these issue might hinder the post-processing of the game to look cheesy. :)
