It might be a strictly PC game, but even Dean Hall thinks DayZ could come to PS3 and Xbox 360. The rest of the world waits patiently...
The story has now been updated with a fuller quote.
Yes please, this or The War Z will do
War Z and Day Z look cool - bit of a risk asking console players to play a game with no objectives though. Make it a digital download and make it happen!
Only thing I'm concerned about after playing it... Are controls. :\ I mean, anyone who's played Arma knows how many buttons there are. I suppose a good bit could be streamlined to pressing/holding a button, but I seriously doubt they could work everything into a standard controller.
Yeah Snookies, most buttons on the Keyboard are used for something
@Snookies12 they could always pack a keyboard and mouse with the game.Well at least for PS3 would add to the cost but it is always a option.
Minecraft seems to be doing ok on the 360 (re no objectives).
As a console gamer who LOVES the look of Day Z, this is music to my ears.
DayZ is what Dead Island should've been. Would love to see this come to console.
Well if they want big sales they better put it on ps3 and 360
disagreed - how many people are playing TF2 or WoW? PC is the biggest market out there, especially as the 1m DayZ community is 100% PC based right now.
Consoles are the biggest market right now... MW3 sold 13.37m total on xbox, 12.19m on PS3 and 1.46m on PC. say "COD sucks" all you want but it made alot of money. Even battlefield 3 sold more on consoles than PC(according to vgchartz), you can also look at bf3 stats and see how many users are online and on what platform. by the way TF2 is f2p... OT:I really hope it comes out on consoles, It looks very fun.
@yuval152 You also have to put into account this game's appeal to most console gamers. A lot of the people you mentioned wont bother with other shooters because they're too busy with CoD/BF.
@Yuval VGchartz is a horribly inaccurate measurement for game sales. PC version most likely right up between the PS3 and 360 version with digital sales included.
If it does come to consoles, it'll most likely have a smaller map and loads of limits compared to the PC version.
Where do I throw money at to make this happen?
This is great news hopefully it happens!
No chance. I can't fathom how it would work.
with enough pop up menus it could work. Loving Dayz, be nice for a console release.
I wouldn't mind seeing this on a console but we'll probably be waiting for some time while the ARMA guys figure out the logistics of such an undertaking.
Strange, only knew of this game since the other day while going thru a Edge mag at a store, thought it looked awesome and the sort of game i'd loved to get lost in, then noticed it was PC only. Then this pops up, brilliant news if it ever happens.
Good luck with that. So many keys in this game.
Let's not lose sight here....Developers/Publishers are looking at profits in the end...you don't make a product to lose...so it's entirely feasible it COULD hit consoles regardless of the 'controls' ...jeez, some folk get concerned over some minor shit??
Most sensible comment on here so far.
Annnnnnnddddd here's where the game goes downhill.
@CaptCalvin I have to say that this is completely wrong,I play COD and battlefield but that dosen't mean I don't play Arkham city, Assassin's creed,skyrim,FIFA street and dragon's dogma.(I own & play all of the games listed) You can't judge people based on 2 games they play.
they'd have to compromise too much of what makes the game great..
They better not even touch a console dev kit until they've shipped the PC version. This is a sensitive game.
Not too worried about DayZ getting consolitis!
Bohemia Interactive's only console game is "Operation Flashpoint: Elite" for the Xbox way back in 2005. They have been PC exclusive ever since.
Your right DayZ is sensitive and if DayZ gets consolitis Bohemia Interactive will lose the fan base that have made them so great which is why a small studio like BI will maintain their PC Exclusivity until at least the Next Gen more x86 friendly consoles arrive.
save it for next gen...
just save it for next gen. I am sick of all these downgraded console ports...
Making PC > Console comparisons is a pointless exercise There will never be a sustained period ever, where consoles will outperform PC's. It's just a fact... PC games downgraded to consoles is something we'll just have to accept. I am happy with what the PS3/360 is pumping out right now (7 years old or not), and am patient enough to wait until the next iterations of which will eventually still trail high end PC's in raw perfomance. PC, Console, Mobile....just play your game :)
