http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gifI said dismayed, not angry. I have been a Myst fan ever since it came out. I just discovered the other day they have Myst IV Revelation. Great, downloaded the demo. Graphics are stupendous, puzzles are outstanding. So you say what is the problem. It is for XP and all, have proper vid card. BUT it is exclusively for DVD. Now I will have to get a DVD player for my system. Not to cry, upgrade is good.
Question for UBI is why can€t you people tell up front DVD in you hype for new games when you go to DVD? There I got that out of my system and I feel better.

Well, if it was on CD it would be alot of CD's I bet. And Half Life 2 (regular CD edition) will have 6 CD's!!

That is a sure bet KU. It has Myst III Exile with it. One disk, the regular CD took 4 disk but you only need 1 DVD. That part is cool, one disk. Would be nice if SC:CT is on DVD, sure would cut on load time.

Is it best to get just a player or player/burner?

That would depend on your budget and needs. DVD player only drives are pretty cheap these days. DVD burners are about the price CD burners were 2-3 years ago. You can get a good one for 150 or so (I think, I haven't looked recently), but if you don't need to burn 2.5 gigs worth of stuff onto a disk, it may be money wasted. DVD-R media isn't dirt cheap either. CD-Rs, I bought my last pack of 50 for $15. DVD-R disks are what, about $4 each?

Its worth it though. Soon everything will be on DVD. You like Myst too? It was the first computer game I ever played myself. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yes DS12 I }}love{{ Myst and all the series.
More than likely I will get mine at PC Warehouse. I know the guy that runs it. He usually builds my systems to my spects. He be a good guy, doesn't understand the video power and such that I want. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif He is not a gamer, but he does good by me. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I have Myst 4 and its exelent game. If you like point and click adventure games then dont miss it, you'll be sorry.

Myst 4 comes on 2 dvd's and you can instal full game which will ocupy 8GB of space on your hard drive. You can install smaller version which will ocupy 3.5GB and it will require DVD to play it.

On one DVD you can put 6CD's so it would take 12CD's to transfer Myst from DVD to CD.

And today dvd players arent so expensive so I suggest you to buy it...

12 CD's is a bit much to switch. 2 DVD's is better.

I saw a dvd drive for 30 dollars today. It seams like a good investment to me.

Yes $30 to $50 is the range I have seen. Tomorrow is the day.

Yeah before you know it, all CDs will be DVDs instead. Like they hardly make any new cassets anymore, mostly DVDs. I think it is a good purchase, especially since you don't have to change disks all the time. KU said at one point that the collectors edition of HL2 is one DVD, as opposed to 6 CDs in the regular version. I may spend the extra 30 bucks just for that.
