that was the console version...

And, according to Bethesda community manager Nick Breckon, it's Xbox 360 footage.

"Just to clarify, all of this trailer was captured on Xbox 360. Also, the draw distance is not faked in any way," wrote Breckon on his Twitter account. We look forward to seeing it on PC.

Yeah keep on believing that. Just like there was very little difference between the 360 and pc version of Oblivion. Just like Doom 3 was almost identical on both xbox and pc. Just like every single other game out there. Look at the shadows in the distance. If they dont pop up like they do in every other 360 game because of the systems design limitations, I'll be fucking stunned. There is ZERO aliasing. The game in that clip is running at a smooth high framerate, again pretty much impossible on any 360 game.

There is no way that is 360 . Its PR. They want you to buy the 360 first and foremost. Mock now but look stupid as usual when the real version comes out.

It game is very awesome looking from a design standpoint, but the graphics aren't the craziest I've seen. If the devs said it's the 360 version, then I'm inclined to believe them. The console has been out for over five years, you think that they would've learn to optimize it by now.

That would go for every other developer out there but you still see games with massive aliasing and screen tearing and framerate drops. You can only do so much. No way is that 360 gameplay. It'll be the biggest shock of my life if it is.

I need another taste. I bet they're not gonna roll out any more media for a while. I hate the hype train.

Well thats the main questions asked by a console gamer. Fucking serious so anyone who gets offended by that should remember the next time they picked up a game and checked the multiplayer aspect as a reason to buy it.

Ok, i might be going crazy but this is way too convenient to not be the case.

I've been looking forward to Skyrim and i love watching the trailer:


The chant is quite cool and i started wondering what it might be saying... and then i realised i was recognizing some words and it was making alot of sense.
I am pretty sure this chant is an old portuguese accent and way of phrasing. Its actually quite possible that it was "stolen" from some old poetry book.

Anyways heres what the chant is and i will translate it for you so you see it makes sense. (this starts after dovahkin does his shout on the dragon).

Vei de lα povito cromanhυ
encostado ΰ terra, ΰ cruz.
Mas, sem sorte consigo
parar de gritar:
Dovahkin, dovahkin
nγo me sinto sorrir,
ou andar como tu
a ver a vida a passar.
Nγo me consigo explicar,
nγo me consigo ousar,
Dovahkin, dovahkin,
vou-te ajudar.

Now the translate/explain

Come forth people (cromanhυ is a way of saying simple people (not persons))
laying near the earth and the cross. (this says they are close to the land and are religious)
With no luck
can i stop shouting: (its a backwards way of saying i cant stop shouting - doesnt really work well in english)
Dovahkin, dovahkin (this word i think bethesda made up)
i dont see myself smile,
or walk (in) life like you.
I cant explain (it),
i cant dare (it),
Dovahkin, dovahkin,
i will help you.


There you go guys. Another exclusive by yours truly. ;)
I was actually pretty excited to have stumbled upon it like that.

What do you think? Am i going crazy or am i right? The lyric sure makes sense and that would be a huge coincidence.
