    Think I'll be getting this on the 360, I wouldn't like to try and control this games movement with a keypad.

    GASP!

    Could the 360 already be out of date as to play the latest games?

    That would suck. It would be like the Wii, except actually trying not to suck.

    Lord knows the 360 doesn't have 2gb of RAM in it...

    EDIT*

    OMG Where from Dougy?

    Basically, it feels like Max Payne, on Crack and Heroin. You get countless enemies to kill, barely any respite, the "special abilities" are good from what I've seen, the first lets you heal yourself, the second gives you ultra-aim, where time slows you zoom in, and can dodge bullets aswell as fire very accurately then you get a short cut scene showing what you hit and where (very accurate, shooting people in the jaw is the best :D ).
    There's stand-offs where you have "Tequila Time" (slow mo) and you have to kill about 5 people one at a time, similar to Ultra Aim.

    Environment interaction is HUGE, you can shoot signs down on top of people, slice people in half, blow stuff up and a lot more. I killed someone into a basket of oranges and I just saw oranges fly up where he died. You can slide around on all the environments (great and confusing in the market area) and you get bonus' for killing people in special ways.

    Only annoyances are theres very little ammo holdable for shotgun (12 rounds) but there's no reload on the pistols, which is nice.

    Negative that, only a single player. I can't see a multiplayer working because of the slo-mo.

    lol, the 360 has more RAM than any other console before it, in terms of a console 512Mb is huge, it helps that it doesn't have a bloated operating system to run as well.

    As for the game, I thought it was fun, but disappointing from the videos I saw, it seemed a lot less polished that the preview videos. The graphics aren't particularly amazing like from the videos and it's just about running around shooting people, not much more to it than that.

    I agree that the graphics don't really seem too amazing, but I think it may be mainly bug resolving.

    The gameplay was a lot of fun though, there were a few clipping issues and the like that I could see but hopefully they'll polish it up a bit before the final release.

    wow... I predict this game will not sell well on pc with those minimum specs. I only know one person with a pc capable of running it.
