It really depends.

3500-100,000 depending what engine and what Consol you are using. Xbox has virtually infinite polygons support, but texture size is more limiting. But it all depends...

I do work similar to the company you want to work for. Just emulate what their polycount is and then maybe add some extra detail for Next Generation work.

my advice would to model several LOD's of the same model... then we can see your hi-res talents as well as your direction you take with only a 1000 polys or less...

...polycount and texture space relly depends on three things:

1) type of console
2) game genre
3) art/code omptimization cheats/tweaks
