    Could it be fake? The only suspect thing i can see is that 6 CDs...would they all actually fit in that case?

    Don't doubt it for a second. Many pieces of recent news and interviews with ID indicate the game was virtually complete and just needed a bit of a polish.

    Accompanied with stores mysteriously, and simultaneously, changing their sites to state "Ships on 08/03/2004". It would suggest we get to lay our hands on it quite soon (Unless you own a Mac, because that version will be released "later" :rolleyes: )

    Bah, the pic you posted has apparently been declared fake. However this one is real (unless proven otherwise of course, heh)

    And still is............. I didn't really get into computers until I was introduced to DOOM, so this is pretty big, not only for me, but lots of gamers, especially the devoted FPS'rs. :cool:

    I heard it's being introduced at the Quakecon event held in America, so it should be out pretty sooner than expected.

    The pic you posted Dave, has just been ruled fake by the Gamespot Rumor Control.

    halo 2 might get delayed as well. if it don't, who cares, Halo 2 to me looks exactly the same as the original, with some very MINOR skin upgrades. I'm waitin for Half-Life 2, which will probably be out sometime in september. seems like a better game than Doom 3 to me. *waits for the flameage to start*

    I think you are blind.
















    Just playing. Well everyone is going to have a different favorite game, I didn't want to turn this thread into a Game A is better than Game B thread...the mention of Halo 2 was merely in jest. Lets get back on topic now, which would be Doom 3 and it's release date. :D

    I can hadly wait for Doom 3 and HL2. Just hope my setup is capable of running it smoothly when it's released, otherwise I might have to pick up a nice graphics card.

    Not the best excuse for one, but at least it's better than buying an XBox just for Halo 2 :)

    The other question is if that if the screenshot was true (confirmed at gamespot to be fake) why not release the game on DVD rather than 6 CDs? as that maybe a teeny bit much of CD swapping for most people (Apart from Baldurs Gate 2 that had about 4 I seem to remember)

    Doom was quite large although you could download it off Compuserve at the time (yes, that old BB system). Doom ][ Came out on a CD itself. Its not surprising Doom ]|[ is even larger.

    I looking forward to both Doom ]|[ and HL-][ myself.

    The UK release will be DVD, so I am sure there will be both floating around like farcry and UT2004.

    I got Doom2 from Compuserve, free guide and hat!! woo!
