    I heard that the Mac version is coming out before the Xbox version. I don't know how accurate that information is though.

    Doom 3 will hit Xbox in October... I expect the mac version to come out after that personally.

    October, you say? I had heard December. Personally I'm expecting the Mac version around September/October - id aren't too bad with regards to Mac versions.

    The X-Box Doom 3 video I saw from E3 was terribly choppy. I have to wonder if the X-Box will even be able to handle it.

    Well, everywhere I've read says October for Xbox... but who knows, it could be pushed back (which is a good thing in a way if it's not ready). The reason I say I didn't expect the mac version until later is because they haven't started working on it, and they said they won't release the mac version until it is as polished as the PC version.

    I really don't know how much code they're going to have to change between the mac version and the linux version though... probably more than I would think... (a little more complicated than the OpenGL classes I took :p )

    Actually, they have started working on it. There's quite a bit of code already written.

    I just read an article online about the Xbox version... they're not sure if they can get it out by the end of the year since there is a lot more they would like to do... bummer.

    All the GBA games they've done have been top-notch. The X-Box version looked comparable to a decent PC, but like I said, the E3 video I saw was very choppy.

    Doom 3 for Xbox will be available at Electronics Boutique (Briarwood Mall, Michigan, USA) on Wednesday (August 4). Why do I claim this? The salesman said so. In the same breath, he said the same for Rainbow Six 3 (for Xbox) WHILE he was sticking prices onto the Rainbow Six 3 game cases themselves (behind the counter). So, suffice it to say that my source seems rather reliable.

    Personally, I'm waiting for the Halo 2 Collector's Edition. Or, maybe I'll just mod my Xbox and skip the whole spending-money step entirely. :D

    Edit: Yes, teh Xbox hardware will be able to handle Doom 3 well. HardOCP has PC benchmarks for Doom 3 which indicate that the minimum requirements for Doom 3 are surprisingly low, and te requirmeents for running it admirably are much lower than expected.

    Are you sure you don't mean October 4th?

    The salesperson I talked to possibly mistook the PC release date for the Xbox one, but hey, we'll see in two days.

    The Xbox release date could very well be sometime in October.
