Short answer: No.

Long answer: Implementations exist for PS2. For XBox, implementations would have to be in terms of DirectX - basically, an API translator - which seems silly.

Didn''t Carmack say that the only way Doom3 would get on XBox was if OpenGL was provided? Although its likely its either a DX wrapper or made specifically for Doom3 so not for general use.

I dont think that Carmack will ever use DX


who knows, maybe some day he will give it another try. though the question remains: if i already have a version using a perfectly fine api available for nearly all platforms, why on earth would i write another version, thats the doing the same and is limited to a single platform (i still have my problems seeing an xbox as something else than a pc crammed into a smaller case and using a slightly different architecture).

i guess for consoles its a good thing to be "different" from each other so they can have their unique killer-game to make people buy it ,-)
