he was replying to this part of your statement, "but the way TFU looks it should run on a pretty old machine", which is contrary to how most (all?) view the technology the TFU utilizes on the PS3 and 360.

@ M@RS: Ryuu wasn't commenting on which PC version you're using - he was asking what version of TFU you were talking about, since you said it can run on "pretty much any old machine"... most would disagree with that assertion.

There we go, lol. Yeah, I could run TFU on my machine (if 360 can, mine can), but i still don't really care for a PC version. It's mission-based and extremely detailed, so what could people really mod? Plus they'd have to enable DMM or Euphoria for certain modded objects or characters. Plus i just have never really been into action-ey games on PC (RTS or RPG mostly).

Yeah, it's truly a shame that us devoted PC enthusiasts who have been fans since the beginning, won't have the opportunity to bring out TFU's full potential such as DMM and Euphoria, because it would be a "Watered Down Experience" on a PC :sarcasm:. It's too bad a company like Lucas Arts has to be greedy.

Well like I said, I'm a devoted PC enthusiast. I have no interest in paying $500 for a console which will only be used for 1 game and 1 game only, despite being a fan. It's not like Lucas Arts needs the money, they will make more than enough profit for all TFU sales on all the other platforms, there's absolutely no reason why a PC version can't be developed.

I'm fairly confident that LA has a couple* reasons why they shouldn't pursue it.

it would be unlikely to be profitable for one thing...just because the other versions make money doesn't mean its a good idea to subsidize the existence of another.

Seriously, why not just make the game for the PC with both DX10 DMM and Euphoria ver and DX9 "watered down" ver? It's still the game everyone is anticipating.

If they're going to make a version for the N-Gage then they should for the NES as well.

It's not simply a matter of LucasArts having one of their interns make two different compiles of the game over their lunch break.

Agreed, Prime. It would be great if LA only cared about the satisfaction of its legions of SW fans, but it is still a business, after all. I know they aren't choosing to not release a PC version just to piss PC users off.

For goodness sake it's 2008! If you like playing games, go and buy a console. If you can't afford one, start saving.

NO! PCs rock they aren't just toys they're tools too, I can do an English Essay and play Jedi Outcast on the same machine, why by a really expensive toy? I'm sticking with what I have a really freaking good PC no matter what Lucas Arts does or doesn't do.

You know you could have both, or do you have an extremely small bedroom or something? And a 360 only costs £160 now. I'd hardly call that "really expensive".

PCs do rock and they are tools - I don't disagree with any of that. But if you really want to play TFU, buy a console. It's really that simple. You can stick with your "really freakin good PC" and use it for everything else you want, but you can't play TFU on it, no matter how "freakin good" it is.

Like a previous user said, a PC is not just a toy, it's a versatile tool. A console is just a toy And yes, 300-400 dollars + the game is expensive if it's only going to be used for one thing, to play that 1 game. I still have PC games from the 1990's that still work on my high-end, Windows XP machine. For consoles, in a matter of 2-3 years, there will be a new generation of consoles and your previous games may or may not work for the new platform.

Yes, I do understand it is still a business. But look at it another way - if your business is dependent on customers, would you not want them to be satisfied ones? Developing customer loyalty and a good track record to encourage people to keep buying future products? But how can they if you suddenly stop producing product that counts for a large chunk of your customer base?

I'm not suggesting you buy a console and then only buy one game to play on it. Come on now, be serious. It's an investment in your gaming enjoyment. I can't imagine any serious gamer in this day and age not owning at least one of the consoles. You have to cover all the bases.

No amount of ranting about there not being a PC version is going to change the fact that there isn't going to be one (at least not when it is first released), so if you seriously want to play TFU, then you have no other choice. Play it, or don't play it.

or someone could mod a previous star wars game on PC and make starkiller, animations (with him using Shien {look it up}) , and maybe a couple of maps? It's a lot of work but no way will it be harder than what the original programmers went through to make TFU

I have one, it's called a PlayStation 2.

It's not as much as not having money as it is about spending atleast 200 euros on a console.

which is a grand total of a few hundred people. even the online petition for a PC version of TFU has only 25,000 signatures, and you can bet not all of them will buy it.
