    from the latest previews, it was said that UT2007 was run on quad Geforce 7800 GTX's. even when they're done the game content they will still have to do a giant load of engine and code optimizations in order to cut the necessary video card number to 2 or even 1 (good luck with that epic :D). What they have currently is short of an alpha, chances are that the game will drag out into early 2007 until it is released, which means that the demo will probably be released in november or december of this year or so.

    So they use the latest hardware in their demo rigs. That means nothing with respect to the minimum requirements. You're right about the optimisations being the last thing in the development, so we probably won't see a demo until very soon before release.

    Drag it down. Fast and hard.

    If they don't cut it down to 1 card, then UT2007's screwed. It'll have the same problem UT2003 had, by being so far ahead of the tech curve that no-one will be able to run it, only a lot more so. I know some people don't seem to think it'll be a major problem, but I garuntee it'll kill the game before it even starts.

    CROWSE, you should play a game demo called RoboHordes, this is the first game that uses UE3 which you are able to get your hands on NOW! once you've played it, you'll know how bad the UE3 lags on current "good" computers (that is if you have one). Oh, and don't be fooled by the framerate, the game does the painkiller thing where when the game lags the game speed is reduced rather than having the framerate reduced, play it on 320x240 then work your way up and you'll realize how bad it lags on 1024x726.

    I'm pretty sure they'll do the same kind of 'optimizations' they did for UT2k3 :
    remove features that aren't as fun/fast as they ought to be

    There's already the rumour that they've reduced warfare/conquest to a campaign-variant of ONS.
    I wouldn't be suprised if all the physics-features and big graphical effects got turned into minor features at release as well.
    I'm sure that's why you don't see much of UT2k7 in the way of screenshots or actual gameplay. It gives them room to kill features before they're leaked and it can stop the pre-hype that nearly killed UT2k3.

    Hardware-requirements won't be a problem. Unreal itself, Quake, MS's Flightsimulator, Morrowind and the games in the Wingcommander-series all were ahead of the curve at release. And neither really suffered from those 'high' requirements.

    Lack of interest for the genre is what is more likely to kill UT2k7's potential.
    If the game is good (or the marketing convinces them it is good) then people will buy the hardware to run it.

    Just look at Halo-series for the Xbox. People are/were spending $200+ just to play one game on a machine that can't do anything else except play games.

    There's only one problem ... neither Epic nor Midway have shown they can promote a game like this. Heck ... only console-games ever get somewhat decent promotion outside the 'regular' channels.

    You have been misled, Game only put such a close release date to encourage more people to preorder. They have as much idea of the actual release date as anyone else outside Epic.

    And that's assuming Epic have a clue themselves. Which to be honest is probably something they are aspiring to themselves.
