Yeah the title (cross our fingers, hopefully it isn't horrid) made me laugh a little, but it doesn't really do the actual quote justice.

Relax guys, he's just saying that they're going to try to port it so that it plays well. Don't jump all over him for announcing he wants to do a good job for PC...

If it was this simple, there'd be a plethora of Xbox/PS3 games on the market...

There aren't because it's not that simple.

Why hope, when they could make sure that it isn't a crappy port. After all, aren't they the developers?

Well, don't make it a half done port then.

Simple.

Oh, yeah, i guess we should be grateful that these devs churn out such garbage. (and i'm not just talking about their games)

It honestly sounds like Lionhead is feeding off this whole "port" fear that seems to plague the PC community.

From what I've witnessed.. any game not designed specifically for the PC is going to be considered a port. Even Bad Company 2 was considered a port even though the PC version did receive special attention and played beautifully.

Does the game have to be designed for the PC first? Well damn.. good luck trying to down-tune a game to play on consoles from PC without making it horribly bad on consoles making it a completely pointless venture. It's just easier and more efficient move to develop the game for consoles first, then optimize it for the thousands of different hardware configurations of PCs.

*edit* I guess no matter which way it goes.. someone is going to be complaining it's an awful port. We're so hard to please.

I played Fable III on the 360 when it came out. Frankly it doesn't matter if the game "feels like a port." They're not going to fix what was wrong with the game by changing platforms.

Still don't understand why they don't make it for PC then scale it down? I mean you're doing the hard work first then you're finishing up with the easy work?

Because it's not as easy or efficient. Scaling down for consoles seems to result in some pretty awful games that feel wrong, making even developing the game on console completely pointless. It sounds easier, but it's not by any means.
