    The game sucks, especially on PC. Here have some TotalBiscuit http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAgc43e-zp4

    I'm surprised they're so sure there isn't another one coming out before then.

    Not impressed by the graphics even on PC. This title really needs to do some upgrading in the graphics department.

    Sorry, I'm going to ask the obvious question ... where the eff is Battlefield 4 in that list of potential No.1's.

    Still maybe I should be pleased, and games have now firmly established themselves as just as hyped as "music", TV (c.f. the 25/11 Doctor Who), and films are.

    I thought it was Emily Blunt - perhaps something from The Adjustment Bureau. Didn't look "pouty" enough to be la Fox.

    EDIT: on second examination I'm now not convinced that it isn't la Fox - maybe check out imfdb and see.

    Re: News - Bookies make Call of Duty: Ghosts fave for Xmas No.1 game

    I saw total biscuits review last night and agree with him that this looks worse than even Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Maybe there's something in the PC version thats not using the high res textures but from his review I saw it already looks like a really old game.

    Also according to :http://movies.yahoo.com/blogs/movie-talk/megan-fox-brings-woman-touch-call-duty-video-012048386.html it is megan fox. (google url image search made this an easy find)

    Why CoD Ghosts requires 6 GB of RAM

    Re: News - Bookies make Call of Duty: Ghosts fave for Xmas No.1 game

    I so very nearly pre ordered this game, as I read that Nvidia had some input into the PC version, but having seen some video clips on You Tube I have changed my mind.

    Why should NVidia having some input be a good thing? Surely they'd make damn sure that it only worked properly with Geforce?

    And I DID pre-order CoD:Ghosts, but on the day the postie delivered it my PC decided finally to give up the Ghost(s?) so no "testing" it for me. My current benchmark is Sleeping Dogs - that looks ace on my PC (up until it stopped working) so if CoD is visually less polished than that then I'm going to be a little put out.

    Thought these days though that CoD was pretty much a "consoles only" deal and it's only wierdo's like me who still use a PC for it?

    Now I'm off to watch the Blackadder 2 episode "Money" because for some reason I feel a kinship with the beggar in that at the moment ... "Pity poor Tom, for his nose is frozen, and he does shiver, and HE'S MAD!"

    Think 1080p may make slightly more difference for me
    (massively oversized for the room projector - 100" image at around 8ft )

    Remember it's not size that counts ... it's what you do with it!

    I have never understood the appeal of COD. Seems too mainstream and samey.

    Re: News - Bookies make Call of Duty: Ghosts fave for Xmas No.1 game

    Jasp U must be hooked on Megan fox, I asked What movie lol - i saw the Ghost Ad on tv its from that. I don't believe its 'plastic Fox'
    Its someone else. i pre-ordered this game i'm glad i changed my mind. BF4 sucks compared to BF3.
    Play Bf4 - crash
    Change maps in BF4 - crash
    Hit someone with M320 - Crash
