Got this from Xengen that got it from IGN that got it from some where. Some kind of world we live in. Good stuff though.
"Ghost Recon
It's not just a port. PC guys, prepare to be jealous."


Fifteen missions

800 motion-captured animations

New weapons only on Xbox!

Includes Desert Siege missions

Sixteen-player deathmatch

Fully online!

"Each of the missions has been retouched, to make them more challenging and offer a different feel to those who played the original. The AI has also been improved. Enemies are smarter, more resourceful, and deadlier. And there will be twice as many enemies on the game map than in the PC version. Yes, you read that right. Twice as many.

Thanks to the design of the Xbox, Ghost Recon will be able to support better graphics than its PC predecessor. Trees will move more naturally in the wind, weather effects and lighting will be vastly improved, and the character models will be more detailed than the PC version. New cinemas have been added, including new intro and outro movies for each mission, which help set up and resolve every conflict."

This is just AWESOME news. I wasn't much looking forward to Ghost Recon myself, since I haven't ever played the PC game. Now after reading this I can't wait to slide this baby next to my sexy new Rainbow Six: Raven Shield on my game shelf next fall.

"Ghost Recon was considered by many to be the best game of last year on PC, and Red Storm's goal is that it be the best game on Xbox this year."

Go' head Red Storm, do yo' thang! That's what I'm talkin' bout!

Indeed this is the correct way to port. IMO adding new features and items to a game being ported to the BOX should be the rule and not the exception.

Untill next time...:mad:
