    Seems like a post apocalypse type game.

    Ghost is one of the recurring SAS character. He has the white skull on the ski mask.

    I don't like the call of duty franchise. But if they take advantage of pc graphic cards I will take a serious look.
  5. I'd bet it's the same dated game engine pushed to the limit for the next-gen console compared to the previous release that was pushed to the limit for the current console. And around they go to rake in millions and snatch GOTY awards.

    It better be DirectX 11. Can't imagine why it wouldn't. Cod is the biggest title in gaming as much as it pains me to say it. It would only make sense that it would showcase all the abilities of the Xbox. I do have a feeling though that even if the 720 has a dx11 card it still won't be powerful enough to take advantage of all dx 11 features. I don't care how efficiently you can code for it, it just isn't that powerful.

    No thanks I'll stick with my current gen PC which already outshines the next gen consoles. i7 @ 4.5, 16gb ram, 2 x gtx 680s in sli 4gb each, 2560 x 1600 display.

    It may have destruction, but it doesnt mean DX11, just like Battlefield: Bad Company 2:
    Plus 60FPS @ 1080P vs the next gen consoles' 30fps @ 1080P.

    Yeah, BO2 isnt fun anymore. The first few months were fun, but then it went downhill fast. This is the same with all cods. They are released and are fun, but then they go downhill. It will be the same with Ghost probably. I still enjoy MW2 and MW3 though, they are just too hacked.

    I was wondering when you'd remind me of your specs! I haven't seen them in a long time.


    JC713 I thought BC2 did run in DX11 mode? Although not with very many DX11 implementations.

    Some people didnt have the hardware for DX11, so it wasnt widely used, but you are right! My bad.
