DOOM Demo Video [Updated]
8:07 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

CNET has archived the portion of the MacWorld Tokyo keynote where Steve Jobs invites John Carmack on stage to demonstrate the DOOM engine id Software has been working on for the past several months. The footage that is shown is being rendered in real time on a Macintosh equipped with a GeForce 3. To describe it in a word: Amazing. Did you expect anything less?

Clicking on the link below will download a small RealPlayer file to your hard drive and load RealPlayer. The video is eight minutes long, but the DOOM demo starts about five minutes in. Don't expect to get it on your first try, as the servers are extremely overloaded. There is also a version of the video available in Windows Media Player format, but we have been unable to verify if this will run on the Mac version of the WMP, which doesn't have a full set of PC decoders.

If you're having issues seeing the video, screen shots of the footage are also now appearing around the web. Eurogamer has posted a dozen which will give you an idea of what the video is like. Unfortunately they all appear to be simple stills from the video, so don't expect any high-resolution shots to come out until they are released by Apple or id.
