First Doom 3 Xbox details emerge at last

Plus, is the PC version due to be released in April?

While Microsoft announced way back at last year's E3 that Doom 3 is Xbox-bound, we've had very little in the way of details on it. Although the fact that development didn't start on the Xbox version of the game until last July - two months after it was first confirmed - may have something to do with this.

The game is reportedly not just a straight port of the PC original but has been partially rewritten specifically for Xbox. However, the game will retain the entire physics and lighting system of the PC game, while the hard drive will be used to handle textures and sound.

Developers id Software have also said that the Xbox is the only console currently capable of running Doom 3, with neither PS2 or Gamecube up to handling the game's graphics, lighting, sound and bump mapping (which simulates the bumps or wrinkles in a surface without the need for geometric modifications to a model).
