Just watched the new trailer - a bit worried about the actual in-game motion (at 1:46 or so, vs spider, the swing motion looks and feels similar to how it was in TES4.. and 3), but it has 7 more months to be polished. Overall, satisfied :D

Well, looks like another title screwed over because of the completely outdated consoles.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim “mostly a DirectX 9 game.” DirectX 11 support a possibility | PC Gamer

This could be the most amazing visual game but it won't be. So far all the builds seen have been for the 360 and while sure it looks nice, just imagine what could be done if they just programed for a PC with current generation graphics. I am getting very annoyed with all of my games going to the console. Look if they want them on the console fine, but program for the high end PC and then downgrade in the port to the console. That way everyone will get the best they can, not just console gamers.

I guess on the bright side I should have no issue with this on my 580.

This shouldn't come as a surprise. Ever since people whined up a storm over Crysis back in 2007 games have been dumbed down and controls messed with. Expect this to continue. The PC will follow the console. Not the other way round.

Edit: Oh, and, on the bright side I should have no issue with this on my X1950 Pro while my 5870 sits idle. Think of the money we will save by no longer having a reason to upgrade our gaming systems!

Well, at least PS4 and Xbox720 should be coming out next year hopefully so we can see a jump in games quality :p Bethesda have always had a hard-on for Xbox360 for some reason, and have even snuffed the PS3 in the past. Not really a surprise to me at this point.

Unfortunately the latest I have heard was that both Sony and Microsoft have delayed releasing new consoles until possible 2014.

Not a Skyrim thread in sight? I can't be the only one super excited for this release. Only two more months!

I still get goosebumps when I watch this trailer. I almost convinced myself to buy the Collectors Edition for PC (which I never do for any game) Luckily the $200.00AUD price tag slapped some sense into me. Still looking forward to getting it on Steam though!

This and RAGE, Bethesda has got some good stuff lined up for us.
