Magic: The Gathering, the world-famous, 15 year-old card game will soon be coming to Xbox Live, Wizards of the Coast announced today.
UK-based Stainless Games will develop the game for both Xbox Live and PC.
Card based video games = fail. Eye of Judgment was alright since it used real cards, but every other game I've played (on GBA, etc) was crappy.
That's why UNO is such a big hit on XBL Arcade???
UNO is card based and it has the most sales I think of any arcade game on XBL, not sure though
Magic the Gathering was an exelent card game (especialy the old ones)
and the video game was exactly like the real life card game...
If this game comes to XBOX Live its gonna kick ass... Thank you Wizards of the Coast !!!! :)
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, i hope this ones good, i just recently got back into MTG when i saw finkel pwn and own in a pro tour over the weekend, i cant wait to see how this turns out, but the actual card game> video game any day.
Shame it's not on the PSN actually, I love Magic and would love to see what they've got here, (Unless it's the same as what is currently available on PC, but I doubt that).
I do enjoy card based games that are re-done as video games. 15 years ago I played the card game quite a bit with friends in university and since have tried some variants that have shown up on the PC.
For those waiting, check out Culdcept Saga (see demo on Live). It is like Magic: the Gathering meets Monopoly. I'm working my way through it right now.
if I ever buy a card game
UNO is really fun. Try having a open mind for a change.
Should have went to PS3. Could have used the PSeye. Oh well.
the 360 also has camera support u know.
Bringing Magic to XBLA will be awesome (hopefully). Would be nice if they also did a PSN version, but oh well.
As an adult gamer it does embarras me somewhat to say this, but if you exclude all the cartoony rubbish from YuGiOh, you actually have one of the best card games ever created. I'd really like to see that on PSN/XBLA, but then again it works perfectly well on the DS and has the added advantage of being portable.
Will this be compatible with Magic the Gathering Online? (MTGO)?
