recently read in the thread about the which version of KotOR 3 you were getting and though, what about KoTOR for the PSP... I would love that, and in fact would prefer it over a console version considering the game lay type, what do you guys think?

:eyeraise: It would be a big waste of time and money IMHO. And since 75% of K1's sales were on xbox (dunno for K2), I hardly see the devs turning their back to that platform...

I don't care. I don't have a psp nor am I ever likely to get one. It would be a long while after the release of the game for xbox and/or pc for them to release the game for that platform anyway.

Bad idea. KotOR isn't made for quick games. One of the needs of handheld games is providing "quick" pleasure. KotOR would simply be unplayable on handheld.

It's a bad idea. PSP is the worst product ever to be released in the history of mankind, and I don't think the gameboy has enough buttons for the functionality you get on the PC and XBOX. Plus, Darth333 is right, KotOR and TSL made way to much money on the platforms it was released on to switch to hanhelds now, though I suppose they could release it on the handheld in addition to the platform, but that would cost extra money.

I sincerely agree with all the people who understand why it won't work, Kotor as it is would be a completely wrong fit.....
However, if you were to simply use the story, while adjusting gameplay to match handheld RPG standards it could be interesting:)
please don't fish slap me:D

I agree with those who think that KOTOR on any of the currently existing Handheld Game Platforms is a bad idea!

and so no handheld KOTOR for me. :)

This board is full of haters.Why can't we all just get along? :xp: Welcome to LucasForums, bobman636! :wavey:

As long as KotOR 3 is released for both Xbox 360 and PC I don't care if LA decides to release a handheld version of the game as well.

But I'm definitely not supportive of a PSP-exclusive version of the game. :disaprove

Id like the idea of Kotor 2 whilst mobile but then again i would'nt. Im half and half. I think the main release should be focused on the pc though.

PSP KOTOR III all the way dude! Who knows a PSP KOTOR III might have enough success that they'll publish the previous two for PSP. Then i could travel the world and not have to give up KOTOR for a while....Yay.

The PC KOTOR has multiple disks so why wouldn't a PSP version. They also managed to fit SW Episode III on a UMD why not KOTOR. I honestly think it could work. Besides if handhelds werent so profitable why would Nintendo keep making them?

Because its HANDHELD gaming, i dont want to haul a bag of UMD's around with me. When i take my PSP somewhere, its got the game thats in it and thats it. And i don't want to have to go through the hassle of changing them at alternate parts of the game, and would probably lose some of them anyway.

Because handheld gaming is aimed at kids. Cue crappy childish adverts for nintendo DS.

Not everybody is disorganized like you..or lazy and probably wouldn't mind having to carry a game case around with them. They're not that big or heavy. Besides KOTOR is a great game so who cares if you gotta carry around a few extra pounds to play it. Besides all you probably have in your suitcase is a change of underpants.(joking) :lol: :xp: :animelol: :nut:

1. PSP is a handheld console and it is definitely not aimed at kids. Grand theft auto, Syphon filter... theyr'e M rated..definitely not for kids

2. If you look at a majority of the titles for PSP they are shooters or gorey fighting games. Not all handhelds are for babies

Anything handheld wouldn't have nearly enough programming oomph to do any KotOR game justice. No way.

I humorously meant that I can't concentrate on driving my car if I'm playing a hand held. Nevermind.

Handhelds don't interest me as I like to be absorbed and comfy when I play.
I like a huge screen and enhanced audio from my stereo.

I do have a psp and I enjoy it. Handheld kotor couldn't have all the features.... well if there was some kind of attachment pack. Yah I would play a handheld kotor. Sometimes all you need in the stressful work day is a little kotor to get you through. Not sure how it would work but I think it is a good idea.

I own a PSP, but I don't think that KOTOR III would be good to play on a PSP. If they need to release it on more consoles, do it on the PS2, since it would save me installing it on the computer.

Sorry i thought you were a kid...No offense taken though I hope. Of course you can't play when driving. I totally agree that a big screen with nice speakers is way better than a PSP. I'm just saying a portable version would be nice for travelling.

Stop double posting! Use the edit button, I know you're new, but you need to learn to use the edit button. Keeping on-topic, the PSP wouldn't be as good as computer, since I've played computer games on my PSP. For example, The Sims 2. It seems to lag sometimes and I'm guessing if KOTOR III was a big game, it would also lag. I would feel much more comfortable playing it on the computer on the PS2. At least having it on the PSP is better than having it on the horrible DS.

I know that you've probably left LF after saying your farewells, but just to make it clear. The DS is for kids and as Darth_Nihl said earlier in this Thread, that the PSP isn't aimed at kids. eg, GTA.

I agree about that. All I was saying is that I wouold like a PSP version for portability and travelling but I would still buy Xbox and PC versions to play at home for better gameplay. I don't anticipate a PSP KOTOR being amazing. Just good enough so you can enjoy some KOTOR fun on your travels.

This will be the last off-topic post I do. Double posting makes the Thread cluttered and it is better to keep all your opinions, etc in the same post.

What Pottsie said :)
It's also an excuse (not you, but others in the past) have used for spamming post count. I can clearly read your discussions and know this isn't the case, however we try to maintain low-clutter threads.

For the other moderator's sake and for your peace of mind.. this isn't an official "Warning", just a friendly reminder :)

Assuming its not the only version, I would feel an overwhelming sense of indifference. On a scale of 1-10 on the indifference scale, it would be about a 9.

Handheld k3 on NDS? Where you can draw your own character with the pen? Sounds fun.

Think of it as the first "stick figure" starwars game.

I don't think that would be a good idea...the DS doesn't have enough buttons to support KOTOR and personally I prefer the PSP to the DS. Although a stick figure star wars game could be kinda fun...just not a KOTOR stick figure game. Maybe just a mini-game you could download of lucasarts.com

Actually, the DS' pen could definitely allow better flexibility control-wise then a PSP. Besides, I don't see how the number of buttons can be an issue. This is a turn base game after all. Pause, decide actions, unpause. You don't need a million buttons for that.

I said it earlier though, I don't think RPGs are made for handheld, but that doesn't mean it's totally undoable. Golden Sun for the GBA is an example. A KotOR spinoff for handheld might be doable, but a port, no.

A full blown KOTOR game on handheld wouldn't do the game justice.

I would buy a verison that had the side games, like pizak(sp) and swoop bike racing Possible much a couple more like maybe a saber battle tourament.

As long as they also keep it on the PC and Xbox, they can go ahead and do a PSP version, I would get it, because i love my PSP, and also my PC. Socom Fire Team Bravo on the PSP FTW

Yes I agree. I would buy the Xbox and PC versions first and would want them to keep it for those platforms but a PSP version would be appreciated for portability.

Actually I was thinking of a pazzak mini-game on NDS, where you can play with your friends...

BTW NDS would be a usable platform for rpgs. The lower screne and touchpen is nice working similar to a tablet mouse. Well the graphic quality is to be desired... But porting a simplified version of the game to a handheld is not a bad idea. Its not too action-filled, and can savegame anywhere, perfect for those busrides and what not.

How about the Wii? I mean, getting to swing the wiimote around as you control your lightsaber would be freakin cool.
Instead of scrolling through the things, flurry would be swinging the mote crisscross or power attack is hitting across the screen -fast- and critical could be something else.

Wii need a star wars game on Wii! (Pun intended.)

i dont see how it would be a different game if its on the wii. If the game stays exactly the same down to the last pixel, then it wouldnt be a different game, just on a different console. Depending on how they could do it, it might be fun. Might be another reason to get the console, like what elder scroll oblivion did for the 360 IMO
