Its good to see the true potential of the 360 finally being utilized though.<br><br><a href="http://www.alanwake.com/" target="_blank">http://www.alanwake.com/</a>

Everything's soo much better when you have money (obviously).<br><br>
Since I started making a lot more money than before, I decided vista really wasn't as crappy as I thought.<br><br>
Right about now, I really don't mind paying $300 for an operating system... 6-8 months after purchasing it I know i'll say what the hell was I thinking but otherwise...<br><br><b>VISTA FTW, QUAD-CORE FTW!!!</b>

360 will die under that much processing. It an barely handle Oblivion.<br><br>
And its alright, but I reckon Crysis is still gonna pwn it.

Its all about optimiztion, and I dont think Oblivion is really that optimized for 360 hardware. Heck my X1900XT has a hard time with it, while it tears through other games like F.E.A.R.

That game looks amazing. Also while Oblivion looks incredible the fact that it is a poorly optimized game has to be addressed.

So does thing mean that this game actually using all of it cores? If so, then this means that softwares are now starting to catching up to the current technology?

What a load of BS. Since when Quad-Cores render "magical" 3D that it's never done before?<br><br>
It's always and will always be about the video card no matter how many "cores" a CPU has. You can 10 CPU cores with a GeForce 6200 and two CPU cores with a GeForce 7950GX2, which one will render the better image quality on a game? Exactly!<br><br>
I'm not buying that crap at all.

The advantage of more cores is each one can dedicate itself to a certain task..<br><br>
One core can be physics, other one AI, other doing other random stuff, etc..
