    The shots look absolutely awesome, what really worries me is the statement that Windows Vista will be required to play this game. Vista will have only just come out so just how many people are going to have the OS at that point? Certainly not me anyway.

    Is it perhaps that you need Vista to use the DX10 effects, there has to be back support for DX9 cards etc so hopefully it won't actually be Vista only, just pretty graphics Vista only.

    wow. these grafix are incredible n just think this is the first directx10 game. imagine what futue titles are gonna look like. I think not even a quad 7900gtx setup could play tis game anywhere near max settings while keeping frame rates adequate (if 7900s could even play direct x10)

    does anyone know how sure we are that these images are produced in-game or are they pre-rendered

    maybe it can be played with current hardware but you wont get the eye candy.

    fair point, you will be able to play it with dx9, but i dont think for a second it will look like that with current dx9 hardware. that is going to need dx10 im sure.

    Well unless those are not real time rendered or rendered using some clever software that will translate Dx10 shaders to Dx9 then thats the quality thats posible using a current card as the Dx10 cards haven't even been produced yet!

    That just looks amazing.. almost too amazing, which has me worried that these are pre-rendered.

    One question: if the eye candy is only available on Dx10 and Dx10 cards have not yet been made. How can these pictures be anything but pre-rendered? Are they then single frames rendered in software?

    Still looks very nice.. need a new computer just to run Vista let alone this game.. I'll start saving now and in 2007 when the game comes out I might have enough :D
