This game is coming to next gen consoles and PC isn't it? I think I recall reading that LucasArts were developing this with the shackles of multi-platform gaming removed so we are seeing what PC gaming can really achieve.

Sounds good to me, although I wonder if my PC will run it smoothly. Time will tell I guess (I assume this won't be out until late next year anyway).

According to that article it runs at a steady 30FPS.. I'm assuming the demo system was running the typical Intel i7 with GTX 680 build which may make 30FPS sound low given all the power on display, though from what I've heard the game uses PhysX very heavily so that may explain the big frame rate hit. May be a game that in 2013/14 whenever it launches will also require gamers to upgrade which may hurt those that just upgraded to GTX 680's but that's the way it goes I guess.

all i want to know is what hardware this and that square enix tech demo were running.

im going full retard on my next PC build if games look like this. 2560 x 1600 w/ 16x AF, 32x AA + 8x transparency AA... will buy what it takes.

they better just make the character boba fett so we can all be happy. I really don't see the point in creating someone new.

You also need to make sure it's an Nvidia card in your next system as from what I heard the Star Wars 1313 demo is using PhysX for practically everything. Chances are the demo was running on a GTX 680 and it was the extensive PhysX use that was getting it to run at 30FPS. Hopefully Nvidia have something more substantial down the line possibly the GTX 7series as it seems like it'll be needed providing this game is practically maxing out a GTX 680.

Truly this game seems very exciting and absolutely stunning. The smoke effects and sparks are also pretty perfect. LucasArts really have done a great job to create an attraction. I also hope that my PC will support to play this game.

I'm still joking around with people Greedo will be the main character. Seriously though, this is going to be fantastic! Seeing as how they kept the frame-rate low (and still make it look so damn gorgeous!), I'm going to go on a hunch it will be released on at least the 360 and PS3 alongside the PC.

Looks fun, but it is a copycat game. Uncharted in the Star Wars Universe. Not that I'm criticizing, I think it will be awesome, I just don't want people saying it's "original".
I hope it's not M-rated as some people are saying. That just doesn't fit with Star Wars.
Excited to see what else it has to offer!

I don't think anyone is calling it original as the influences are there for all to see. I do think most of the excitement for this game is from PC gamers, those that may not have a PS3 to play Uncharted so this is the next best thing. LucasArts have already said that if it carries an M rating it will be due to story themes and character choices and less down to violence.. I don't think we'll know how an M rated Star Wars is until this is made since as far as I'm aware it has never been done before.

I think people are trying to ignore the fact the Star Wars Universe is actually quite a violent place with some very disturbing elements and figures. That is what 1313 is going to shine the light on....this cruel, dark, seedy underworld which has always hovered just below the surface of what we've seen so far.

I don't know why anyone would be bothered by the mature themes....in my eyes, it's about time Star Wars grew up.
