    PC all the way (if your system can run it decent). The mods are a huge factor (hell, they gave me another year of Morrowind, maybe more). I can't do FPS games, or real time RPGs on a console. To many buttons needed and the mouse is a must. IF however, my system was low end, and I had a 360, I'd go with the 360 or course. Either way, the game is gonna kick ass, I've been waiting for it since my junior year in college.

    I know morrowind played better on a console in my opinion. I think a Controller adds to an RPG instead of just a keyboard and mouse. Maybe a 360 controller on the pc is in order?

    So, I went to my local EBgames store.


    They had the 360 version, but no PC version.


    Was so disappointed.

    I'll let you know how I feel about the mouse/keyboard vs. XBOX 360 controller once I get the game. :)

    However, I'm so used to the kb/mouse it will be an effort to make the change.

    Also, I will have access to both versions....PC for me; XBOX 360 for my son. (On a 62 inch wide Toshiba HDTV, no less. :) )

    On the outside chance that Wal-Mart would have it, I stopped by there on my way home. No luck! :( Guess I'll be a CompUSA as soon as they turn the key in the door to open. :D

    I could put up a few movies if anyone is interested. :)

    I'll also be doing screenshots. ;)

    And, for those interested, the game automatically set up my system for HIGH quality. :cool:

    Well, so far, I'm playing it at 1024x768...mainly because I'm also outputting it to the TV OUT so I can capture some game video.

    At that res and with AA @ 6 samples, V-Sync OFF, I'm seeing an average over 30 FPS.

    However, I have reached an area where the Blades are encountering Assassins as Uriel Septim is being escorted through the tunnels, and my game is halting to a horrible 'slideshow'....actually worse. I'm having to wait until the Blades finish off the assassins before I can even move again. I hope this isn't by design.

    BTW, when you install the game it defaults to V-SYNC ON. Watch for that.


    EDIT: I was going to post some screenshots, but it seems ImageShack is down for now.


    EDIT 2: By turning off AA, I'm now seeing FPS of over 70 and the battles are much better.
