    Not that I am one to be taken in by pre-release hype but fuck me I can't wait for this game:

    Bethesda Softworks and 2K Games Announce

    The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to Ship March 20

    Quintessential RPG for the Next Generation Coming to Xbox 360 and PC

    Rockville, MD - March 2, 2006 - Bethesda Softworks® and 2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced that the highly-anticipated role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls® IV: Oblivion™ has gone to gold master and will be available in stores in North America and Europe during the week of March 20. Oblivion will be available for Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC in both regular and collector's editions.

    "Our most ambitious project ever is finally done," said Todd Howard, executive producer of Oblivion. "We're excited to get the game into everyone's hands and let them experience it for themselves. We hope they enjoy it. I think it's our best game yet."

    Oblivion is an epic, open-ended single-player RPG for the next generation providing gamers with one of the most life-like gaming experiences to date. The powerful combination of unprecedented graphics and freeform gameplay allows gamers to unravel the main quest or explore the vast world at their own pace. Oblivion is the fourth chapter in the award-winning Elder Scrolls series that includes Morrowind® (2002 RPG of the year - Computer Gaming World), Daggerfall™ (1996 RPG of the year -- PC Gamer), and Arena (1994 RPG of the year - Computer Player).

    "Oblivion will set the new standard for next generation gaming and change the way role-playing games are viewed forever," said Vlatko Andonov, president of Bethesda Softworks. "We set very high goals and ensure they are reached because that is what our fans deserve and have come to expect from Bethesda Softworks. We are very proud of our team's accomplishments with respect to Oblivion."
    Oblivion has already garnered numerous awards and an impressive collection of accolades, including being voted "RPG of Show" in 2005 by the Best of E3 Game Critics Awards. Oblivion ranks as one of the "Most Anticipated Games of 2006" according to PC Gamer, GameSpy, IGN, and Yahoo Games among many others, and has been featured on nearly thirty magazine covers worldwide.

    "Oblivion is one of the most anticipated video games of 2006 and its release will be a milestone for the Xbox 360 and PC," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director, 2K Games. "A shining example of next-generation role-playing, Oblivion breaks new ground in the genre with unparalleled graphics, revolutionary gameplay and an expansive RPG world."

    Oblivion for Xbox 360 and PC, co-published by Bethesda Softworks and 2K Games, has been rated "T" for Teen by the ESRB.

    This will be the second game in two years that I will actually purchase (the other being Half-Life 2). Of course, if a copy hits the 'net early then I will still download it...

    Here's a really useful thread as with regards to the specs your pc will need:

    http://www.elderscrolls.com/forums/i...ic=251609&st=0

    or:

    Official PC Requirements

    The system requirements for the PC are officially as follows:
    Recommended:
    • 3 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
    • 1 GB System RAM
    • ATI X800 series, Nvidia GeForce 6800 series, or higher video card
    Minimum System Requirements:
    • Windows XP
    • 512MB System RAM
    • 2 Ghz Intel Pentium 4 or equivalent processor
    • 128MB Direct3D compatible video card
    • and DirectX 9.0 compatible driver;
    • 8x DVD-ROM drive
    • 4.6 GB free hard disk space
    • DirectX 9.0c (included)
    • DirectX 8.1 compatible sound card
    • Keyboard, Mouse
    Supported Video Card Chipsets:
    • ATI X1900 series
    • ATI X1800 series
    • ATI X1600 series
    • ATI X1300 series
    • ATI X850 series
    • ATI x800 series
    • ATI x700 series
    • ATI x600 series
    • ATI Radeon 9800 series
    • ATI Radeon 9700 series
    • ATI Radeon 9600 series
    • ATI Radeon 9500 series
    • NVIDIA GeForce 7800 series
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 series
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6600 series
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6200 series
    • NVIDIA GeForce FX series
    Those pics are most likely taken from a high-end PC, I seem to recall the demo was taken from the PC version. If you get the choice go for the PC version, mods are a huge part of what made Morrowind greatness and mods will be quite limited on the X360. For instance, with the Radiant AI system already looking really interesting already it will be cool to see what mod-makers can make of it.

    Can't wait for this damn game. I've never played the first Morrowind games but from what I've heard this sounds amazing. Gonna get the PC version and X360 version.
