...if TOR only comes out for PC. I mean, PC-only SW games are OK, but consoles are where it's at. Yes, my computer is good enough to play video games on it, but I'm not gonna play a PC game. I mean, Galaxies control scheme was hard enough, so I really really really really hope it comes to, oh, let's say, XBOX 360? :D

right. and you wanted to activate your 35 skills with the 4 buttons on your 360?

PC is logical choice for these games.

Old Republic is PC Only (http://www.starwarsmmo.net/?fn_mode=comments&fn_incl=0&fn_id=15)

So yeah don't count on it coming to your 360. There were rumors about EA wanting to make it for consoles but LA shot them down with this.

I imagine this from the huge mobs of people protesting TFU because it wasn't on the PC?

Jeff

Maybe, probably because MMOs are traditionally on PC and it would be harder to make it cross platform. But it is good to know LucasArts wasn't lying during TFU development when they said they definitely haven't forgotten about the PC.

As I recall Sony talked about releasing Galaxies on PS2. That fell through as well. As said, it would probably be impracticable to bind all actions to a few keys - unless we are to pause and select an action from a menu. Which would be awful.

As much as I would prefer the better graphical quality of my PS3 (as opposed to my own computer), it seems better to keep it on PC. It would likely have much more range and depth than would be possible with a console.

I have to say I disagree with the thread author. A large part of the PC games' charm is the modding capabilities, which bring a new sense of freshness each time I play.

I've played two MMOs that had console releases: Phantasy Star Universe and Final Fantasy XI. FFXI had the most horrible and unintuitive UI I've ever seen short of Battlecruiser 3000AD, and PSU was dumbed down far beyond even most console games.

Yeah. PC only please.

They could do the sort of thing they did with Garry's Mod online, where if you don't have a mod on a server, the game downloads them for you before you join.

I dont know what you mean...

all mmorpgs are PC... the very basis engine for an mmorpg envolves mouse look systems and mouse based interactivity...

I dont see why not come out on xbox but I think everyone in mmorpgs comunities would be much more discontent if it were NOT coming on PC

The problem is that consoles are NOT PCs. A console simply can't process all that data.

I hope to god it's not dumbed down like that! I don't want to use a hand controller to play games like this, they are not action FPS style games!

I sure hope this does NOT come to 360, there is enough bad games already. Plus the PC fans haven't gotten an LA game on PC in a while.

That's because TFU's issue was processing of all the graphics and physics and such. I assume that's not the issue here.

Playing this game would only be a problem if it was exclusive to Xbox 360; which given two weeks won't be a problem anyway ;)

Telling us to "shut up" only unfairly portrays you in a negative light that I'm sure you don't deserve. We merely responded to your desire to see TOR on the console with our belief that such an act would not be a good one.

If this game was to come out on consols, I'd be very disapointed because chances are that LA and Bioware would have to dumb it down. MMOs and consoles just don't work.

1. It hasn't been released yet
2. It would be much better if it wasn't an MMO
3. It's not an MMORPG
4. It's gonna suck anyway

Yeah, t hasn't been released yet, so, repeating the question, who knows.

2 and 4 are beside the point. Point 3 is true, but it's an MMO, nevertheless.

:carms:

Putting aside the whole 'it's not what we want' thing, shouldn't you at least try and give it a chance before dumping all over it? As you yourself said, in the very same post i've quoted:

It hasn't been released yet.

So you can hardly gauge the quality of it when it's not out yet.

Ever seen a trailer for a movie, before it came out, and thought, "Geez that's gonna suck."?

No, because I only judge things based on the whole product, as opposed to a small selection from it, and I intend to do that here as well.

That was a horrible movie, the only one in that series to be good was the second one, the first one was horribly overrated, and just plain awful.

It didn't suck. It wasn't phenominal, but it didn't suck. The first Star Wars trailer made it look like it would suck too.

Oh and the trailer for the Crystal Skull made it look like it was going to be a great movie....

imo it sucked horribly

If you're talking about the first SW movie as in PM, then the trailer was correct, if ANH, then it was dead wrong.
But back then, the quality was pretty poor...

Meh difference of opinion.

I was talking about ANH. The point is, trailers do not guarantee either a good or bad movie. Nor do pre-alpha shots indicate a good or bad game.

I never actually said that it did. Maybe I should've worded that differently

But do you believe that an MMO will be good on a console?

If it is designed specifically for the console, and only the console, it can be. If it is designed for the PC and ported to the console, doubtful it would be good. It would have to make too many compromises to be workable on both PC and console. Rather than saying it will suck though I would say chances are high that it will suck based on other attempts, but who knows, it might be good.

Hopefully they want degrade in quality like they have over the last 10 years, making games simply and unintuitive enough for the console kiddos to play.
