This is from the elderscrolls forums. This thread is the 2nd thread, but the first post summarizes the first thread.

His thoughts:
"To be perfectly honest, my initial impression of the graphics (the game was running on a high-def TV) was that they were disappointing. The Emperor and Imperial guard models looked a little rough, especially the former's, and certainly not as impressive as in the screenshots."

"As for feeling disappointed by my (vague) impressions, don't be. If you're a fan of the series, you really will feel right at home, and it's impossible to tell what the *meat* of the game is like from just 30-40mins.
(Also, I was disappointed, in terms of graphics and tech, with *everything* at X05. You should see Perfect Dark Zero ... ughhh, Riddick looks better at times.) "

Another Oblivion note regarding this quote:
"According to XBOX World Oct 2005, issue 30, page 94, column 3 :-
Bethesda told us The 360 version is going to be the best looking by far even compared to a top end PC, even if we spend thousands of pounds on the best money can buy. PC technology just isn't up to this level yet."


Pete from Bethesda said: "We didn't, which is why it isn't in quotes. They're paraphrasing with a few of their own words thrown in so it makes the platform they've dedicated their magazine to look far superior. Imagine that. "

agree

Yes please do not get Ozy started. Ozy kills me he will not listen to his GUT but listens to hear say. If some one makes a post the 360 is not very powerful he will take it to heart and obsess about it all day.

Incase Ozy missed it in the other thread...this is what he said a month or so ago...

Pete Hines..

QUOTE
“The advantage of the Xbox 360 is that it’s designed to run our game, period. You know if you have a 360 it will look as good as it can possibly look. If you have the latest, greatest PC with the best video card, etc., it will probably look the same as the Xbox 360 version. Anything else will lag behind.”

He later goes on to say that , “When people ask us whether or not to do a major PC upgrade or get the console version of one of our games, we always recommend the console version. Our games tend to push the limits of technology pretty hard, so it’s much easier to predict performance on a closed box than one with thousands of possible configurations.”

Sony didn' t put enough ventilation in there anyway. It seems like they made the same mistake with PS3. How are they ever going to keep that Cell cool?

I was a bit surprised to hear that he didn't like Oblivion's gfx, but then again I remember how badly the Samsung TV sets we're adjusted in TGS, so I'm really not that surprised in the end. It kind of bothers me that the same retailer demo x360 sets will be distributed everywhere with the same crappy settings. mad.gif

But still, it has become obvious that x360's launch WAS a bit rushed when it comes to games - the most of the first wave of games are sadly pretty much more 1.5 than 2.0. But, on the other side I'm glad I'm atleast getting SOMETHING right away, not having to wait to fall 2006 for our console and games, and we know there's a loads of great titles coming up just around the corner.

My december and january will be well spent with PGR3, Saints Row and Condemned. In the springtime we'll have plenty of great titles, including GOW, Ghost Recon and new sequel for Splinter Cell series, of which current installation looks amazing even with current hardware.

So there's nothing to panic about, some games will look better and other games look worse. But that's pretty much the way it has been since the first computer games.
