marathon update

Q&A with the guys who developed the Xbox arcade version of Marathon: Durandal.

Of particular interest,
HD Graphics. You can turn on HD graphics (they are on by default). This is a total replacement—walls, guns, aliens, effects even the marine.

720p Widescreen. The game is running in true widescreen at 720p. This actually gives you a bit more visual room.

60 frames a second game play. Marathon 2 was originally locked to 30 frames a second. We increased it to 60 (and ensured the existing logic transferred over to 60 ticks a sec instead of 30). This gives the game a much more fluid presentation than it’s computer counterpart.
