I hope yours work, becasue if yours doesn't work mine wont work. I don't think the specifications for running the game are known yet, though.


So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.

Shame about the no agp ports.

See if you can download a demo of the game before you buy it to test performance on your set up.

BioWare also released any early build of the toolset as somewhat of a demo.

I have a feeling I won't be running KotOR at full specs. They have only recently been releasing games that I can't play at full specs and I have a P3 800, 256Mb RAM, GeForce2 GTS Pro 64Mb.

NWN is one of the few games that I can't crank up to full.

^ It's all of those lighting effects, sure they look great but they must take up quite a bit of processing power

If your so upset with playing it on XBox why don't you just turn down everything to the lowest possible setting @ 640x480. Thats probably what you would be running on your TV anyway.

and some, like a beat 'em up, never on a pc

It depends on the person. Some like consoles, some like pc's, some like both.

However, there is only so far graphics quality can go on a standard TV, even if it had a Radeon 9700 or an NV30(the fastest consumer level graphics chips) it still wouldn't look as good as on a computer monitor. Why? Because of the screen resolutions of TV's. They go up to about 800x600. On a monitor this looks ok. Also a TV has a terrible dot pitche meaning the text will look blurry as well as being bigger in size the actual pixels are a lot bigger on a TV. Meaning less image quality (IQ). An HDTV however, would definitely look ace. But many can't afford these.

However, if you save paying US$1000 on a new PC and instead buy a console, perhaps with the money you save you could buy an HDTV. Just a thought.

a good tv and an x box (plus $40-50 games....) or a pc where I can do a lot of cool ****, download the games, etc...

hmmm... I wonder what one I would choose.... PC



but these days a lot of people have both..

How on earth did you link FPS with beat-em ups. A beat-em up is when you fight with fists in a side on view against another until you knock them out. An FPS is a First Person Shooter - see the difference!

First person shooters usually require slightly more skill than beat um ups where mashing random buttons in your best strategy.


So what I told you was true, from a certain point of view.
