Just wondering if anyone knows what kind of lip sync is planned to be in the final version od DX:IW. I know that because of half life 2 warren wants to improve it but does anyone know to what extent it will be or would have been?

I know that Max Payne 2 which is being releases oct 15 is suppsed to have full lip sync as well.

Any thoughts?

Where did you get this idea? I really don't think developers go hawking around other companies' E3 booths and think 'Oooo, that looks good, we'd better steal it.' They make their own game.

Anyway, the tech company Ion was using for lipsynching was announced quite a while ago, but then went backrupt and closed down. They said they're still planning on using that technology, but for the life of me I can't remember the company's name.

Last I heard they were still going to use the technology, they just wouldn't be able to get the kind of support for it they'd like.
