Star Wars Battlefront III alleen voor Xbox 360

Het regent exclusieve titels voor de Xbox 360 de laatste tijd. Microsoft heeft gisteren wederom knap werk geleverd door nóg een exclusieve titel binnen te slepen.

Ontwikkelaar Free Radical is namelijk bezig met Star Wars: Battlefront III exclusief voor de Xbox 360. En dat is opmerkelijk, vooral als je ziet dat de eerdere delen in deze serie multiplatform waren. Een reden spreekt voor zich: Lucas Arts heeft het Star Wars team verlaten en normaal gesproken zorgen zij ervoor dat de game op alle platformen verschijnt.
(source: www.gamequarter.be)

It is dutch so let me translate it for you.

Develloper Free Radical are busy working on Star Wars: Battlefront 3 exclusively for Xbox 360. Very strange because the prequels in the series where on multiplatform.
The reason: Lucas Arts has left the Star Wars team and they would take the reponsibility for multiplatform sales


PS. I don't know how reliable this info is but the site is always very accurate with what they say

Nieuws: Star Wars Battlefront 3 in ieder geval naar Xbox 360
Door Rene Groen op 01-10-2006 om 14:17 Bron: Gamefront
Na het verschijnen van Star Wars Battlefront (Xbox en PlayStation 2) in 2004 en Star Wars Battlefront II (Xbox, PlayStation 2 en PSP) in 2005 komt Free Radical ook met een derde deel.

Bij de aankondiging van het derde deel was nog onbekend naar welke systemen het spel zou komen, maar eentje is nu bekend gemaakt. Star Wars Battlefront 3 zal in ieder geval naar de Xbox 360 komen, zo laat Official Xbox 360 Magazine weten. *In een later stadium zal de ontwikkelaar ook bekend maken welke andere systemen het spel krijgen.*
(source: http://www.gamed.nl/view/21741)

And again i need to translate it.

Star wars bf 3 will come 100% certain to Xbox, but * In a further stadium will the develloper also release the names of other game platforms. *

And again i don't know how reliable this site is.

PS. Can somebody send me some links to american sites where the got the bf3 issue too?????

Yeah indeed, i have a ps 2 but this game will probably come out very late this year and i think arount next christmas the prices of the xbox an ps3 reduce.
And with all those high expectations of quality and high details the can't build it for the ps2 or any other platform because the game is just too big.

back on topic, Lucas Arts will always be involved in SWBF2 as they created star wars.

I think what studentor is saying is that Lucas Arts doesnt actually play as much of a role in the actuall development as do FR or Pandemic might have.

Im gonna back up darkjedimonkeys statement with a question, how would Germans and dutch get all this information. If I'm not mistaken, you typically announce games to the "big" video game countries, South Korea, US and sometimes Britain. Not only does Germany have some of the strictest video game "nanny laws", its audience is comparatively small, along with Holland. Now maybe FR took different marketing classes and are trying to announce games to places that will gather almost no hype and therefore less profit, or those stories are crap/ internet rumors someone decided to make internet facts by calling themselves important member of important game company/ magazine.
Besides, I know that battlefront 3 is only coming out for the gameboy color since Im the CEO of blizzard or something.

Eventually I will have to get a 360 or PS3. Maybe not anytime soon but I will. I waited like 4 years to get an Xbox ( I think that I got it in 2005?). Anyways, I would have either one of those systems if they were not so expensive.

You are absolutly right if you say that star wars isn't very popular in europe but the 'nanny laws' do not excist by the way, i think that the us have more so called nanny laws then europe. But now to the game for europe.

Indeed they can't make much profit out of the game hre but that is why i am extra happy if they still publish it in europe of course. But the sources of dutch or german or every other european country are the same as the ones of the US. I agree, the one is more reliable as then the other but we are just as important for the game industry as the US. And yet again i said that i didn't exactly know how reliable my sources are but if you have better sources plz post it.

Well i don't agree with you that Asia is a big profit for the star wars series because they dont know much of it. I think but because the bf series are a bit the same as cs and battlefield 2 so because it is that genre, the sales will be high.
Battlefront 2 has made up very much profit from Europe too because many don't care about the story behind star wars or the 'for them stupid jedi'. They love the fighting and that's it.
So it is certainly not idiot.
We have massive attention for star wars in games magazines and that is over whole of Europe so it is certainly not for a small audience.

"The three largest producers of and markets for computer and video games (in order) are North America (US and Canada), Japan and the United Kingdom."
Hmmm, where is Germany and Holland? Im sorry, but you dont announce a game to a small audience. True it may have had a lot of sales in europe, but guess which country had a LOT more. The US. Thus, announcing it to the US or even the UK, being FRs home country makes a lot of sense. Other European countries, not as much.

Ok but i don't know what your point is because the game will be in the stores of most european country's, including holland.
Yes i know that the US and Japan and England are the best and actually is England the biggest because EA is the leading gamedesigner and publisher on the planet.
Holland has only one gamedesign team and the created the game 'killzone' i dont like it but it is not bad for their first game.
I have no doubt that the game will have the highest sales in the US, but they always want more, and thats when Asia and Europe knocks at the door.

That "info" is completely bogus. Battlefront has traditionally been for the PC, and additionally it as a FPS is highly moddable. Its lifetime has been easily doubled if not more by the PC modding community and I don't believe LA is fool enough not to notice that.

Let's examine the evidence we can rest assured is valid: the evidence on FR's website. In the Games section, we can see beside the "Top Secret" picture a title: "Secret LucasArts Project (NextGen Platforms) - TBA" Let's assume (for lack of REAL conflicting information) that the "project" is BFIII.

First of all, we can make a note of several things:

1) The game will be classified as "NextGen"
2) The game will be on more than one "NextGen" console (note the plural "platforms")

Looking at the other games on their list, we realize more things about their game production habits. Firstly, observe the consoles their games have been released on:

PS2 / PS3: TimeSplitters, TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect, HAZE
XBOX (none on 360 yet): TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect
GC: TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect
PC: Second Sight

From the above information, I make these predictions on the unknowns on the page:

TimeSplitters 4: PS3, XBOX 360
Secret Project: PS3, XBOX 360, PC

Now my reasons for the predictions are these. First of all, "NextGen Platforms" must logically include both the PS3 and XBOX 360, so they are given (obvious, I know). If the "Secret Project" is indeed Battlefront III, It will probably be on the PC. The reason I believe this is because PC games are easily moddable and therefore last much longer in the higher ranks than comparable "static" games. I would have lost interest in Empire at War and the Battlefield series long ago if it weren't for the mods available for each.

From a marketing perspective: the PS3 and XBOX 360 are the most powerful NextGen Consoles on the market, and would be the best picks for a FPS with as big a hype as Battlefront III. Both of the other BF, as well a substantial amount of other Star Wars games have come out for the PC if at all on the consoles; this therefore means that many fans of Star Wars games will have a PC, because of the volume of good games for it. I doubt FR would ignore such a large portion of Star Wars gamers.

In short, more gamers for a console = more buyers = more $$$; the vast majority of SW Gamers either have a PC, or a console from Sony or Microsoft (or all three, as some have). The smart thing would be for them to create an easily moddable version for the PC, then give the two console versions a whole bunch of extras that couldn't be duplicated by mods on the PC. This would create double sales from many who own a PC and a Console - the gamer buys the PC version for the mods, and the version for the console of their choice for all the extras. I'm starting to see more games built this way in the attempt to get more sales on the same game, and the people at Free Radical are clearly not stupid; they'll likely attempt the same. The only difference is they'll actually be successful.

Those are my reasons: FR will make BFIII on the PS3 according to FR's production habits, on the 360 (because it's another NextGen console), and the PC because LucasArts / Battlefront tradition dictates it to at least be on PC. Another reason that applies to having all three is so the game is available to a wider range of gamers, and therefore make more money.

To whoever said it above: yes, making video games costs a lot of money in itself, but it would actually be more expensive to make two video games than it would be to make a single game on multiple consoles; why do you think they do it all the time?

To jawathehutt: I think it'll be 4.5m O, but 2.25m O2, depending on whether you wanted the natural diatomic state or not (I think, seeing as how there'd be 1.5m O2 and 3m O in CaCO3). I could be wrong, but I don't have my chemistry teacher on hand to ask, so I'll go with the answer of 2.25m of O2. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

But I digress... oh, and about the LucasArts "dropping" Star Wars? To that I say, "A bigger load of yellow journalism I've never seen." (I could say worse things, but that would be against my religious principles) LucasArts formed a PARTNERSHIP with Free Radical, that's not the same as dropping Star Wars and handing it over to some other company. It'd never happen in the first place though, so why even bring it up?

Let's examine the evidence we can rest assured is valid: the evidence on FR's website. In the Games section, we can see beside the "Top Secret" picture a title: "Secret LucasArts Project (NextGen Platforms) - TBA" Let's assume (for lack of REAL conflicting information) that the "project" is BFIII.

First of all, we can make a note of several things:

1) The game will be classified as "NextGen"
2) The game will be on more than one "NextGen" console (note the plural "platforms")

Looking at the other games on their list, we realize more things about their game production habits. Firstly, observe the consoles their games have been released on:

PS2 / PS3: TimeSplitters, TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect, HAZE
XBOX (none on 360 yet): TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect
GC: TimeSplitters 2, Second Sight, TimeSplitters Future Perfect
PC: Second Sight

From the above information, I make these predictions on the unknowns on the page:

TimeSplitters 4: PS3, XBOX 360
Secret Project: PS3, XBOX 360, PC

Now my reasons for the predictions are these. First of all, "NextGen Platforms" must logically include both the PS3 and XBOX 360, so they are given (obvious, I know). If the "Secret Project" is indeed Battlefront III, It will probably be on the PC. The reason I believe this is because PC games are easily moddable and therefore last much longer in the higher ranks than comparable "static" games. I would have lost interest in Empire at War and the Battlefield series long ago if it weren't for the mods available for each.

From a marketing perspective: the PS3 and XBOX 360 are the most powerful NextGen Consoles on the market, and would be the best picks for a FPS with as big a hype as Battlefront III. Both of the other BF, as well a substantial amount of other Star Wars games have come out for the PC if at all on the consoles; this therefore means that many fans of Star Wars games will have a PC, because of the volume of good games for it. I doubt FR would ignore such a large portion of Star Wars gamers.

In short, more gamers for a console = more buyers = more $$$; the vast majority of SW Gamers either have a PC, or a console from Sony or Microsoft (or all three, as some have). The smart thing would be for them to create an easily moddable version for the PC, then give the two console versions a whole bunch of extras that couldn't be duplicated by mods on the PC. This would create double sales from many who own a PC and a Console - the gamer buys the PC version for the mods, and the version for the console of their choice for all the extras. I'm starting to see more games built this way in the attempt to get more sales on the same game, and the people at Free Radical are clearly not stupid; they'll likely attempt the same. The only difference is they'll actually be successful.

Those are my reasons: FR will make BFIII on the PS3 according to FR's production habits, on the 360 (because it's another NextGen console), and the PC because LucasArts / Battlefront tradition dictates it to at least be on PC. Another reason that applies to having all three is so the game is available to a wider range of gamers, and therefore make more money.

To whoever said it above: yes, making video games costs a lot of money in itself, but it would actually be more expensive to make two video games than it would be to make a single game on multiple consoles; why do you think they do it all the time?

To jawathehutt: I think it'll be 4.5m O, but 2.25m O2, depending on whether you wanted the natural diatomic state or not (I think, seeing as how there'd be 1.5m O2 and 3m O in CaCO3). I could be wrong, but I don't have my chemistry teacher on hand to ask, so I'll go with the answer of 2.25m of O2. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.

But I digress... oh, and about the LucasArts "dropping" Star Wars? To that I say, "A bigger load of yellow journalism I've never seen." (I could say worse things, but that would be against my religious principles) LucasArts formed a PARTNERSHIP with Free Radical, that's not the same as dropping Star Wars and handing it over to some other company.

I doubt Battlefront 3 would be exclusive to PS3 and X-box 360. The PS2 and PC got it! They are releasing The Force Unleashed and Lego Indiana Jones on PS2. Thrillville and Thrillville 2 are on PS2 also. PSP also got Star Wars Battlefront II, Thrillville 2 and Star Wars Lego. My final prediction for versions of Battlefront 3 are PS3, PS2, PSP, X-360, Wii, Nintendo DS and PC. Then a year after release it will come out for Mcintosh.

That's a poor sales market if it's only to XBOX 360.

It'll be for all platforms as Lucasarts now supports publishing their main titles for all platforms now, such as Force Unleashed.

why would they not release it for the PC... its like all part of the cycle XBOX, PS3, and the PC... (no not you Wii)... i mean they could do what they did with force unleashed... create a slightly dumb down version so that the hardware can handle it... and thing you wouldnt even have to put an anything special in the PC version to make it more interesting cuz ppl can mod it! thats got to count for some percentage of sells

To hell with that! It has the biggest potential on PC. Does almost everybody own PS3 or XBOX 360? No. Are the original games on PS3 or XBOX 360? No. Does almost everybody own a computer? Yes. Is everyone who owns the computer version of SWBF2 going to buy SWBF3 for PC? Yes.

Darth Eclipse

I think that they will make SWBIII for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, and Mac. I guess it MAY come out on a handheld but I wouldn't get it.

When I saw this text about free radical game having a secret Lucasarts project I really thought they were gonna make a Republic Commando sequel, especially after that easter egg from the force unleashed. But now my dream is getting further from me every day... I like Battlefront though but I'd rather have a RepCom / ImpCom game.

They should just focus all of their efforts on making the PS3 and 360 versions of SWBFIII the best that they can, then maybe 6 months after they come out, then they port it to PC and PSP.

And why not just include PC with the first two. It requires minimal work to change controls and some code for it to be compatible with the 3 whereas with the PSP you have to deal with completely changing graphics and gameplay

A lot of games are coming out for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3, what's up with that?. PC is still the best gaming platform no matter what. LucasArts already made us suffer by releasing Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on just Consoles. It would be a great torment if SWBF3 came out only on Xbox 360 and PS3. It isn't fair! Oh, well.

LordOfTheFish
11-19-2008, 10:41 PM
Yeah, because 1: PS3's are to expensive for what you get, not to mention there laser's are going to break and once again Sony will have ripped the world off. 2: I doubt BF3 would be worth buying a 360 for.

I think Republic Commando has a very good reasons to get a sequel:
- Sev's fate is still unknown and Karen Traviss isn't going to reveal it in her books. Sev's fate is still entirely from Lucasarts.
- The books continue as Imperial Commando after order 66 so why not a game? The timeline between episode 3 and 4 is popular now. Look at TFU and the tv series wich are coming.
- Also the popularity of RepCom is getting bigger and bigger especially when you look at the book series.

Give me one good reason why repcom doesn't need a sequel...

There is no confirmation on whether this will be on the xbox 360, playstation3, and the pc since there hasn't been any public statement from any game developers taking on the project; and that Pandemic Studio, who are rumored to take on the project is still not confirmed. So this thread is just nonsense.

with rep. commando, they might be waiting for the new imp. commando novel to release a game.
And the force unleashed IS being unleashed on pc.
and crysis 2 is being made for consoles with a better engine than crysis warhead.
if BF3 is made it will be on the PC regardless of the consoles. although I suspect it will be best for ps3 :P

That stinks for me! Yeah the graphics and quality are going to be great, but I don't have either of those systems, and probably won't for quite some time. Thats way too bad. They can't think about the people who don't have the new systems?!

The goal is to make the game better than it's predecessors, not the same or worse quality, so unfortunately they must move forward to a more advanced system. Sucks, but you gotta fork over the cash for the consoles if you want the new shiny stuff.
