yea this is the reason the demo was delayed because they wanted the beta drivers out first

Don't have to. It's sold in stores too. And it's a single player game, not multiplayer.

I had to enable the game online, so not exactly sure. But i know im hearing a lot of people *****ing about the lack of widescreen support. ITs working perfectly for me in widescreen mode. As soon as i finished installing and activating it, it patched. So i'm guessing the patch fixed the aspect ratio for widescreen.

apparently the widescreen is a cropped full screen...widescreen should enhance the vision from side to side, but in this case, they took out vision for the top and bottom...

Ok well i just checked and dropped down to 1600x1200 (highest non widescreen res under my native) and it looks the same. Its not cropping. If its not actually widescreen then it is stretched, but its definately not cropped as the players hands are exactly the same in widescreen and 4x3
