[videogamer.com] LucasArts: 'We're not shutting the door on PC' - Page 3

post #21 of 42
Ugh. What has LucasArts come to? I don't want some garbage sub-par console game ported over to PC anyway. The Jedi Knight glory days are over, I guess. Sad.

I am sure we can all laugh in unison at the idea that people will need a $4000 dollar PC to enjoy a game made for $300 consoles. The idea is simply ridiculous, and to fathom that these people use PCs for development and are able to utter such clueless statements with a straight face.. I'm not sure what's doing it, if it's all the dollars they get from the console manufacturers or if they've just bought that much into all the PC gaming is dying FUD the console manufacturers are spreading.

It's also funny how a watered-down version of this game is being made for the DS and PSP, yet we on our 'inferior' PCs are not allowed to enjoy this 'watered down' experience that we are said we would get (nevermind that every single console port from the so-called 'next gen' consoles so far have run better and looked better on any reasonably new mid-end PC).



Eventually, ha-ha. I can assure you, while calling you names I will not type on this forum, I am not buying a single half-baked PC port from you people. Not after these statements. Not after you issued a press release about a PC version of The Force Unleashed as an APRIL FOOLS JOKE. Clearly you have absolutely no respect for your 'PC fans' (do you have any left?), and you certainly won't get any of my money. Your games are not even worth the hard drive space and bandwidth I'd have to waste pirating them.
Wow dude you are overreacting.

Well, anyway, it would come, eventually when our pc's have "power enought" to run it...

And when he states that the door are not closed for PC gamers I hope he's refering to KoTOR 3, else I'll be real pissed...
He said normal PCs don't have the power to run it. Which is true.

Well, yeah, but how many "normal" PCs can run Crysis? That didn't stop Crysis from coming out, did it?

Well PS3 has 2 TFlops of Computing Powers (what I have read somewhere)
My CPU has ~ 40 GFlop, my Video Card ~ 170GFlop, my PC was ~$700

You have a point. But I don't know how resource demanding is DMM (you should see the videos about this features)

That's fine.. George Lucas looks like one of those in-bread freaks from The Hills Have Eyes series.

What's so suprising that dev's are thinking with their wallets ? Is it really that suprising... if you are a game dev.. and you see the kind of numbers a popular series like GTAIV can do ? THEN WHY WOULD'NT YOU ?!?!

If this article was reversed.. and LucasArts said they are making pc only games.. and are not making anything on the console then everyone would be saying "ZOMG THE console market is super hot right now.. *** are they thinking"

I'm sorry but if they are making the game for the PS2, that is the least powerful console out there.

Yes, yes I would. They'd be INSANE to not release it on, if nothing else, the Wii. The PS3 and XBox would be added bonus, but the Wii is in nearly everyone's home that has one of the other two 'big names'. It's too cheap to NOT be an easy choice to buy one, so if they were to release a well-made (as in, not Spiderman 3 quality which was one of the ugliest ports I've ever seen) well-designed (makes FULL use of the wiimote) game on the Wii, they'd be sold out for weeks to come.

But, yes, they'd be insane to not release it on the console market. They ARE insane for not releasing it on the PC market, too, just so you know. But oh well, it's not as if I don't have a Wii to play it on when it comes out. ;D

Yeah that's ridiculous.

Not giving up on PC games eh?

Well this one game here you're about to release will probably be the only decent one for the next few years.

And after that, you'll come up with more excuses to not make a PC port.

Sigh.

So, they'd rather have less people buy it?

Logical, considering they don't deserve it.
