Plus! Activision 2005 schedule revealed: True Crime 2, Quake IV, Ultimate Spider-Man and more...

Activision have announced their line-up of games for 2005 - and they've revealed a slew of new titles in the process. The biggest news is that the game based on Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith will be released on 5 May and, according to LucasArts president Jim Ward, will be "the WWE of Star Wars games". Like the Episode III movie, the PS2 and Xbox game focuses on the climactic fight between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker and, according to Ward, will include "the most exciting lightsaber duels ever seen in a videogame".

The third-person action-adventure will also give players the chance to make use of a range of abilities: as Anakin, players will unleash the power of the dark side in ruthless lightsaber and Force attacks while, as Obi-Wan, players will struggle to save the galaxy from darkness by focusing the power of the light side into swift and precise lightsaber attacks and using the Force to control enemy actions. A preview of the game will be available as part of the Star Wars Trilogy DVD that's being released in September.

consoles claim they're better for gaming, they're made purely for gaming unlike the pc, but still they need these stupid console-only licenses.

Alegis....XBOX pwnz j00! :P

Just kidding.

Seriously though, after about five years of steady flops with games based on the Star Wars movie releases, they have a steep order to fill with Episode III. They will be scrutinized to the last pixel.

If they pull off something new and original like they did with Riddick, this will be an exiting time!

I am of two minds ...

On the one hand, I almost bought an XBox for KotOR, would have if I didn't know it was coming to PC. I have the money if I so choose.

On the other hand, we have a GameCube that Santa brought for the 'family', and even though I have RS3:Rebel Strike and Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance, I pretty much never play it. I recognize that I'm a PC Gamer, plain and simle.

... what to do ...

I am suprised they are not releasing it on the PC. The PC is the grown mans console...

No PC! How dare they! This Data better be wrong, After the Halo 2 business, they can't do this to me! NO! If only my friends were more Star Wars loving... They've got an Xbox...

So cruel... I'm just hoping... Can't Lucasarts see? The PC market is growing again! Just look at Half-Life two! But Lucasarts doesn't understand! But PC gamers will never die! We're going on strike!

... right fellas?

EDIT: alright, we're going to start a rebellion! WE're going to send angry letters to Lucasarts! We'll threaten them to stop buying viseo games untill they come out on PC! Please, console gamers, help us!

Or not... Stupid idea anyway...

Well I guess there's CXBX (http://www.caustik.com/cxbx/) (runs Xbox games at full speed...only works for XP and 2000...needs lots of development to increase XDK compatibility...runs Turok great though) and PCSX2 (http://www.pcsx2.net/) (runs some PS2 games...very very slow at the moment...on the plus side your PC's DVD player can read PS2 games unlike with Xbox DVD's)...

But really, with Quake IV and very probably a Jedi Knight 3 (or whatever you want to call it) using the Doom 3 engine, who cares? :D

Meh, who cares about ep 3 - QUAKE IV :D
D3, HL2 and Q4 all within one and a half years. Sweet.

I have no hopes for the latest SW games, especially with all the next-generation games like the ones mentioned above coming out.
