Ive been playing UT 2003 demo on pc and all i can say is OMFG im a ut player from way back, and i thought my old geforce 2 gts (64m) 1.2ghz tbirid and kt266 m/b with 256mb ram would choke under the pressure, i was quite wrong! the game plays fantastically and very smoothly, and i realised howmuch i missed my mouse after playing halo so much..
So when i heard that UT 2003 will come shipped with linux server AND CLIENT! i almost choked, because i know that the sourforge linux project will eventually pullup a stable version of linux i thought hmm, will someone release an adapter to plug a mouse/kb into your xbox? OF COURSE! theres money to be made why wouldnt they? this might seriously ****up the fairness of UT CHAMPIONSHIP on xbox but what it does tell me is why **** with UT championship if you could run ut 2003 for pc on your xbox with your best buddy lasermouse and kb whack it into ure lan and go fragging vs pc players?
Why would i want to do this? well i thought about buying a 300-400$ (aud) gfx card , like a suma ge4 just for ut 2003 because i love it so much and i thought wtf, that gfx card will make gfx only really as good as xbox thats kinda st00pid!
Im honestly starting to think xbox should of been released with pc compatibly so game manufactuers could have an xbox version of the game with pure code to deliver the same performence advantage as a console does.....
I dont know the technichal merits of this argument wether it would be possible to get UT 2003 on the box.. if anyone here is a bit of a code guru feel free to flame me / add your piece of mind to the thread!
