A year is a long time to wait, though. By then we could be knee deep in Unreal Warfare and even the new Doom. However, a year may be the minimum for enough of the market to adopt the hardware necessary to emulate the Xbox's capabilities to make porting the title financially viable. Either way, I can't wait.
