I think I'm gonna be mad...
 
...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

The Doctor 10-29-2008 01:46 PM

Don't count on it.

Ztalker 10-29-2008 01:48 PM

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

PC is logical choice for these games.

Jeff 10-29-2008 02:27 PM

Old Republic is PC Only

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.

Zwier Zak 10-29-2008 02:29 PM

Console gamers get a lot moore games annyway ;/ We need MORE PC only games.

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.

SW01 10-29-2008 04:03 PM

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.

Miltiades 10-29-2008 05:02 PM

You get TFU, we get TOR. :D

Zerimar Nyliram 10-29-2008 05:28 PM

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.

Don't expect there to be much modding going on besides UI editing with an MMO.

Scars Unseen 10-29-2008 06:24 PM

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.

I'm aware of this, but I was speaking of games in general.

I beg to differ.

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.

Ganan 10-31-2008 12:17 PM

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

Yes those are all UI additions.

DarthMaulUK 10-31-2008 01:57 PM

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

GwannaSauna 10-31-2008 03:17 PM

Well, I just hope it's good...

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!

GeneralPloKoon 11-06-2008 09:37 AM

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.

Funny that the reverse was one of the reasons given for why the TFU didn't come out for PC...

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

Blix 11-10-2008 04:34 PM

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 ;)

GwannaSauna 11-11-2008 01:06 AM

Ok, ok! Shut up, already! I know, people hate consoles! Yes, TOR is coming one way or another (sorry, Blondie) and I'm fine with it being on PC!!! :swear:

teodesetkata 11-11-2008 01:31 AM

Yeah, I mean - what did you a expect? A MMO on a console? That's a laugh.

SpartanPride 11-11-2008 01:47 AM

^Yes. Has happened before.

LordOfTheFish 11-11-2008 10:17 PM

Everything, is better on PC.

GeneralPloKoon 11-11-2008 11:02 PM

I wouldn't say everything.

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.

Most stuff is though.

Iron Rose 12-25-2008 01:04 AM

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.

Rabish Bini 01-01-2009 01:25 AM

Yeah, an MMORPG on a console, that'll work :dozey:

GeneralPloKoon 01-01-2009 11:38 PM

The Agency looks amazing! So does TOR, but I'm continuing to say don't worry, its not KOTOR III!

Wasting your breath. Do you really think the 2 BioWare founders would lie about that?

:carms:

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.

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:

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