I hope they will show some real gameplay soon, although these cut scenes looks great.

Why again a CG trailer? I want to see some gameplay. But the release date is set end of 2009, so the wait is still very long.

2k said that the trailer is ingame!

Yeah. At least this was posted when the shorter trailer was released a while ago: http://forums.2kgames.com/forums/showpost.php?p=38...

I can't wait to see it on my own monitor!

This is ingame. If it is not they should make their cgi-trailers much better. If you look carefully you will see things that clearly would have been excluded from an cgi-movie.

Games his autumn are going to look slighty better den last autumn, so I don`t expect less.

the reason their cgi-trailer looks like this is because they don't want too big of a leap from CG to actual ingame. And to be honest, im not suprised if that trailer does in fact use some ingames models but as a whole the game won't look that great when playing it. It would be great if it would, but it won't.

I highly doubt the game will actually look like this during gameplay. I'll believe it when I see it.

my guess is in game assets (just look at the guys sleeve for christs sake, you could have your eye out on it) but with a forced depth of field and unrealistic levels of AA (unless they're PC screenshots)

im looking forward to it tho.

This is all PC footage, because there is no way the consoles can handle all of them assets on-screen at once with zero aliasing. I wish they could, but judging by the most demanding current games, they just cant. One thing this video did is lean me towards getting the PC game. I want to play this game in all its glory and I have the perfect PC to do so. Cant wait to play it! It looks like it has great atmosphere. I love going back in time via videogames. Lets hope they get the feel of the fifties right.

Man if you have the "perfect PC" for it, get it on PC, no question in my opinion.
I'll wait for specs and see which is a wiser choice.

I'm leaning towards PC but those graphics on a GeForce 9600..LOL....VERY doubtful haha.

Excitement level 99% by the way for this game! (impossible to be excited 100%! :P)

Yea, I just built a Q9550 Quad Core with 16GB's of RAM and 2 300GB Velociraptor drives. I think I have settled on the 2GB 4870 X2 for my videocard , which should last me for quite some time.

This game looks insane.

Actually I'm guessing it will look this great. See, there is this platform called PC. It happens to be what the developers who are developing on consoles and PC use to demonstrate the game. lol.

    GriftGFX They're going to wind up harming consumer friendly service models as much as they will punish the bad ones. And I feel like stuff like SWBF2 will be appropriately punished by the market. (1 Hour ago)
