I was always criticized for never having played DOOM. I guess I'll be picking this up when it comes out.

I'm going to right my sins

Oh man. I can't wait. I'm a huge Doom/Quake fan. I had Doom on the original Xbox. The HD facelift and new missions will be great. Carmack rules.

Nice but where can we pre order i checked gamestop and amazon but its not on there.
rmedtx  +   1257d ago
True, I've been trying to pre order it with no luck.
Biohazard8860  +   1257d ago
makes like no sense they announce a date with price and no pre order yet like wow
caseh  +   1256d ago
Might be available on PSN/Live/Steam?

Same thing with Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown. I was hunting for pre-orders until a week before it was out, turns out it was on PSN/Live only. :)

SoundGamer  +   1257d ago
Already have the game, I think I'll pass but good deal for those who don't.
Stansolo  +   1257d ago
I do aswell but I can't miss this with all the bolt on goodies. All in lovely
rmedtx  +   1257d ago
I played doom 3 on xbox and I loved it, but it was kind of crappy compared with the PC version. I can't wait to play it again.
Biohazard8860  +   1257d ago
Yea me too atleast this version will look better than the xbox port.
STONEY4  +   1257d ago
It wasn't just the graphics. The Xbox version had most of the levels made more linear due to hardware limitations, and even entire levels in the middle of the game cut out.

The beginning opening sequence was turned into a cutscene, while on PC you start playing as soon as the ship lands. I couldn't imagine not playing the PC version.

I'm glad the flashlight is attached to your suit now. I remember that being a complaint way back in the day.
KillerPwned  +   1257d ago
I will not buy this on the first day unless it had some awesome upgrades to DOOM 3. I will however be buying it as soon as I see it around $25.
Cajun Chicken  +   1257d ago
Nice. Can never play the Doom games too many times. Also folks are in for a treat with RoE.
FarCryLover182  +   1257d ago
And the totally new chapters!
MrWonderful  +   1257d ago
I guess I'll wait and see if they get the ps3 issues they claim to have fixed before I pick this up
Stansolo  +   1257d ago
They had better fix it!!
DestinyHeroDoomlord  +   1257d ago
Oh yeah now I can finally play doom and not just that I can play all of them...
Dread  +   1257d ago
This is fine and all but all of these games are already playable on my 360.

Doom 3 and the expansion packs for the original xbox are backwards compatible
if you bought the limited edition it also includes doom 2, which is also bc

also Doom 1 and Doom 2 are available on xbox live

anyways good edition for those who do not have them. The other benefit I guess is the achievements.

The xbox version had alot of stuff cut out, plus your getting new levels(The Lost Mission), Updated graphics, New Sound(5.1), HD, 3D, its not going to be the same as xbox version.
Siren30  +   1257d ago
Why do all the games have to come out late in the year? I don't understand why they don't release these games in the summer when there is nothing else out. They would probably sell better

gemc666  +   1257d ago
you mean back to the past right?
Skate-AK  +   1257d ago
Hopefully they get the PS3 version running good by then.
Paul85  +   1257d ago
Yes can't wait to play this game I remember playing doom on my cousin's pc in the early 90's I believe very scary game never got to finish doom 3 now I get a chance!!!
segamon  +   1256d ago

I'm very VERY excited for this. I have the Xbox Doom3 in the special edition Tin Case. I never got around to beating it. But now this is just perfect for me to play again and actually finish. Not too mention DOOM 1 and 2? That's the complete collection right there. I'm SOLD. Day 1 for me. On Xbox 360.

Read the article, took a piss and thought about it, computer say's NO.....
Philoctetes  +   1256d ago
Why release stuff like this in October? You'd think these sorts of retro releases would be good summer launches, when the cupboard is bare otherwise.
Dark_Overlord  +   1256d ago
Although this is great (Day 1), I'm hoping they include the 3 expansion packs too :)

The Ultimate Doom
Master Levels for Doom II
Final Doom

Would make the package even greater
