Terraria fans angry at console version announcement

Legions of Terraria fans express their anger after its indie developer announced an XBLA and PSN version, following a decision to cease adding content to the PC original earlier this year. (PC, PS3, Terraria, Xbox 360)

If you've been following this since Red left then you should easily understand why people are ticked off.

Terraria fans have every reasons to be mad and ticked off

"and that his PR techniques have “damaged the community” in recent months."

"Users are questioning his claims that family matters kept him away from development of the game if he was able to work with others on a console version"

Just want to leave this here since the guy explains it so well.


As for the people disagreeing you probably don't have a clue what went on when he left do you.

seems like people whining because they don't get free content on a cheap game to me...
If you're complaining about this it's that you spend alot of time on terraria and have already legitimized your purchase. Let the guy do what he wants, and it can't be that hard to mod, can it?
Carl_Shocker  +   965d ago
Oh yeah I'm sorry I forgot anyone that complains is a "whiner" when they speak out over something.

Can't be hard to mod....are you serious, where not all modders you know. Anyway how can people make good mods if he won't release the source for the game...see people like you don't have a clue whats going on

sorry to announce that complaining isn't more glamourous than whining...

I'll admit my mod comment was a bit stupid.

anyway, know that when you bought terraria, you purchased a finished product, you did not pledge for it's kickstarter, you got what you paid for and complaining that you only got *some* more is immature of you.

anyway the problem here is PR, these a developers that never got any PR training, of course they're gonna make mistakes, heck every major company makes big PR mistakes.

Look, I'm as big a fan of the game as anyone, but over the past year or so it's gotten two big updates and bunch of smaller updates....all of it FREE. If they want to move on to make a little extra money at this point, I don't really blame them. I mean, I only paid five bucks for the game.

I've always been a big proponent of consumer rights and everything, but in this instance, it truly is just a terrible case of entitlement issues.

One can carry a a great degree of dignity with a complaint, whereas you'll often find, for example, a spoilt child whining.

It's actually pretty irrelevant what he did, said, or continues to do. The game was $5, one off payment, for what was a full and complete title.

They added additional content, for quite some time, for free. Nobody paid any additional money, over the initial cost. There is absolutely ZERO obligation or need, for him to go back and continue to develop content for a title he is finished with.

NOT one single claim, has any actual merit, outside of maybe, the content being available to all systems, even if PC Gamers have to pay.

Simply put, EVERY PC Gamer who already bought it, should have had MORE than their moneys worth by now, and if not, then that is no failure of the developer, but the consumer himself, for choosing a game they don't enjoy.
Reverent  +   965d ago
I actually bought it last month off of Steam for $10. I have been playing it nonstop since then. I've put WELL over a hundred hours into the game and had a ton of fun. That's a hell of a lot more than I can say for most full $60 retail games these days. I am perfectly satisfied with that purchase.

And guess what? I'm going to play the HELL out of Terraria on my PS3 too. I can't wait to do so in fact. People who are complaining about this seriously need to grow up. More success for Relogic means more support for Terraria and any future titles.

I don't like to stereotype, but the PC community has been doing this SO much lately. Demanding a better version of Dark Souls, Demanding extra content for this and that, and now this... It's making them look like a bunch of immature kids.

This reminds me of comparing Android users to IOS users. Some people want everything for nothing.

Thats a great post. Too bad entitlement syndrome takes away the vision to see that
Moncole  +   965d ago
They should at least give more content to the PC users.
kostchtchie_  +   965d ago
why? why should he? the game cost $5 when i got it off steam, and it had so much content, he don't need give them nothing but his middle finger, PC gamers make me sick with there we demand bullshit
smashcrashbash  +   965d ago
Very true. The man has no obligation to do ANYTHING. If he wants to do this for what ever reason it is his decision not yours. You buying the game for five dollars doesn't make the guy your slave and you the master or anything.Gamers have this sense of entitlement that has become a bad habit among them. What ever he decides to do that is up to him not you. And a word of advise, calling him names and badgering him probably is not the best way to make him change his mind.
Moncole  +   965d ago
So the people who got it on PC and made the game what it is should get no new content?
GrahamGolden  +   965d ago
look kid its time to realise G.A.M.E.S sales BETTER on consoles 4 to 1 suck this fact and deal with it.

or go back to a dota game or whatever
Moncole  +   965d ago
They actually sell a lot more on PC.
Raider69  +   965d ago
Well i would like controller support for the pc version!Especially now with BIG PICTURE mode on steam!

Why would you even want controller support for Terraria?... I'm hoping the console versions have Keyboard and Mouse support.
tee_bag242  +   965d ago
Mate, He just said why he would want controller support. He is using big picture mode on his TV!

If he's going to use a TV, why would would he want a big a$$ keyboard and mouse sliding around on his lap.
Reverent  +   965d ago
Well personally I've never had such a problem. I play all of my PC games on a 56" screen and it's never bothered me to have a mouse sitting on the arm rest of my couch and a keyboard on my lap. Doesn't do any sliding whatsoever.

Not all the fans just the PC elitests who think they are the only people in the world. I love terraria and I'm excited that this has a chance to reach more people and grow the fan-base a lot. This game is great and deserves a lot more attention than it has gotten.
kostchtchie_  +   965d ago
well said mate
OMEGAZONE  +   965d ago
A good decision, PC fanboys can eat it,
kostchtchie_  +   965d ago
exactly, the guy done enough free content and stuff for the $5 price if you bought when it first went live on steam

How many of the angry ones have ever pirated a game?
beerkeg  +   965d ago
What has that got to do with anything?
madeinLeeds  +   965d ago
Are u for real? Because people who steal from the devs have no right to complain about them seeking profits from other platforms!! Do u want to know what day it is too?
beerkeg  +   964d ago
I know what piracy is, I just don't know what it has to do with this article.

The article is headlined 'Terraria fans angry at console version announcement'.

It's not called 'Pirates angry at console version announcement'

So I'll ask again - What has that got to do with anything?
Qrphe  +   965d ago
I honestly do not see much of a problem with this. I am more or less a PC elitist myself and find it fair that the developer has decided to move on. Either way, the community will continue to add more content to the game than the developer could probably keep up with anyway.
The__Banka  +   965d ago
I bought it for the pc and loved it and will be buying it for the ps3 as well
GrahamGolden  +   965d ago
pc nerds butturt?
Your comment is not ordinary more console fanboy if anything. Because of the last thing you said.

I play on pc and I have the game. I don't like it.

Also I am a nerd why is that bad? I am learning video game programming, mathamitical functions & physics.. Nerds never get ripped buying technology - fact..

Without nerds you couldn't play heavenly sword or play games or type that comment.

Nerds & business men rule the world!
