    Like you need a reason to upgrade. Stay ahead of the flood.

    I think someone already linked us to these pics here.

    We get to play this when?

    zeradul How about an estimated price? And do you have a link to a site where you can routinely find the best prices on games?

    Doom3 will hit the market most likely at 49.99, but some places might charge 54.99 or even 59.99. And heres whats cool about ID games, they are so good, their prices don't deflate even after a year on the market, but games like Half Life, and Diakatana drop to under half their price after a year. Quake3 STILL sells for 29.99 at the local Best Buy. I think thats cool. Good Stuff retains its value.

    There really aren't any ways to get it much cheaper, exept wait for the Best Buy discount policy. They have a strange method of discounding new things, like periferals and software. After a product has been on the market 4 weeks, they discount it significantly just for one week.

    Thats how I got Quake3, I paid 32.99 after a 17 dollar price drop 4 weeks after it came out.

    And you can bet, that like Quake3, DOOM3 will be pre-orderable to arrive at your home the DAY it is released, and for an extra 20$ you can get it shipped to you in a metal, plastic, or some fancy box that looks like it might be used within the game. The Quake3 TIN conainer looked pretty cool (bullet dents and whatnot), but its not something I was going to pay an extra 20$ for at the time.

    I can only imagine what the DOOM3 box might look like, but I think it will be worth an extra 20$

    That's a great tip. I go within a few blocks of a Best Buy 6 days a week so I'll check it out after it's released.

    If your BestBuy store is like the one I have here, then wait one week from the release date. They usually drop the price by about $10 or so for one week and then take it back up to retail. :)

    Paid AU$99.95 for the tin-box Q3A delivered to my door a day before retail release.
    Worst money ever spent.

    For some stupid reason, I forked out another AU$39.95 for the Team Arena mission pack. What was I thinking?

    Sold both of 'em few months later for $40.
    Retain value my arse.

    Nice jaggies too...

    id make the worst games ever. What they do excell at is game engines. Can't wait for someone with half a brain to put the engine to good use.

    We seem to have a difference of opinion. Once I buy a game, I usually hold on to it. I try to play everything first so I know if it's something I want to keep.

    I'm gonna have to stick up for SoF2 here. It's the one game that has drawn me in properly. Now that I've finally got ADSL I'm online all the time playin that.
