So hopefully it will dodge one of the biggest issues that PC series moving to consoles has: Attempting to appease half-wits who demand simplified games.

Hopefully they have been monitoring the backlash from Crysis 2, and will refrain from skimping on the tech.
Are you honestly suggesting east european gamers will demand complex, unrefined control schemes for consoles? Hell, I've even heard people from PC praise the new system in Crysis 2, it's preposterous to think complex systems would go over well on console when you already have a very basic medium to play games with.

For those that never seen faction wars..if you ever play the game (CoP), and you hear gun fire in the distance and you see mercenaries shooting at stalkers or vice versa, or other minor factions shooting at each other (particularly in Clear Sky) those are faction wars. I see them a lot in Call of Pripyat in the first map with that ship with the bar inside (forgot the name). Just wander out from that and you can see them shooting each other

I'll wait and see. Just because PC series moving to console has always led to disappointment in the past, doesn't mean that it will inevitably lead to disappointment. It just means that the chances are quite bad.

They're making a new engine for STALKER 2. I agree that X-ray would probably never run on consoles, but considering how good of an engine X-ray was (and the dev's first engine), I think that the new engine could be quite good, and run much better than the old one.

If crap really does hit the fan and STALKER 2 is a flop, then hopefully the modders will keep going on X-ray and keep new stalker content coming.

There is nothing about console gamers that makes them inherently more stupid or whatever than PC gamers. I think the target audience has much more to do with the complexity of game created, and all I was saying is that it has worked well for them so far, and I don't see them trying to get soccer moms to play it.

They could easily implement a "shift" type function for the left bumper for instance, in which ABXY have different functions when the bumper is held. Just because developers haven't bothered trying to put some complexity on consoles doesn't mean that it's impossible or unplayable or tedious.

That's just regular old A-life. Just as human patrols see mutants as a threat, bandits see stalkers as a threat. It was in SOC. Faction wars is the thing in CS, where you go to capture points and stuff. It was awful and I'm glad they ditched it.

If you are suggesting that STALKER 2 will go without A-life (and all the random encounters it generates), then all I can say is that I hope you are wrong. I think that GSC would recognize the single largest feature that makes its games different from everybody else's, and make sure not to tamper with a good thing.

I suppose. I just see little to no chance of this going well to be honest. :/

I agree that it doesn't bode well, but STALKER 2 on consoles is going to happen no matter how big a stink we put up. It's been in development (with consoles in mind) ever since COP went gold, so even if they did decide to not go on consoles, the "taint" is still going to be there unless they scrap all of their previous work. So the only thing we can do now is wait and see how good of a game it ends up being, and how much of the STALKER we love is left intact.

hasn't this been known for a long time?

It IS possible to do a good console port (just ask Capcom )

hopefully they'll preserve the feel of the game. Even aside from that, with all the rumors that MS will announce a new xbox @ E3 and Nintendo with its Project Cafe, should catch consoles up to PC hardware for about a week... hopefully that week is the week that STALKER 2 is released

I loved all 3 S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games, especially CoP. It remains one of the greatest games I've played.

If GSC brings these games to the console level it will need to be impressive to get me to play. Nothing good has come out of console ports ever.
