At last! We can now start counting down the days to the release of "Two Worlds"! This role-playing masterpiece will be in the European stores on the 7th of March 2007 - for PC and Xbox 360!
Another exclusive AAA title for the 360.
I've never heard of this until now, so I wouldn't really say it's AAA. Plus, it's on the pc, so it's not so exclusive. People like me who don't have a 360 will still be able to play games like this and Bioshock, and the pc versions are usually better in my opinion because of the ability to get mods, which add considerably to the replay value.
I think kmis said it all. I will be playing it on my PC if it is worth my time. That must suck having your "AAA" titles available on the biggest gaming platform ever... PC.
Another big + for PC gaming is the flexibility for controls. Keyboard + Mouse or Logitech controller? I am thankful I have a choice.
...you're both idiots. Microsoft IS the PC ; every 360 title that also comes to PC, is STILL EXCLUSIVE FOR MS. A lot of PC gamers also like consoles, because of all the games that aren't available for PC...but you rarely find console gamers, that enjoy PC gaming. This generation of consoles is the beginning of the end to the division....and PC gaming will no longer have the following that once came from the exclusive content and powerful graphics not possible on consoles. If you prefer mouse and keyboard, that's fine...but you're in the minority. For $400, I can have the same...if not better...gaming experience, as someone with a $1000-$3000 PC rig. PC-exclusive gamers are suckers, and/or retarded.
Wow, there is a lot of good stuff in your statement. Let me analyze...
Yeah, it MIGHT be an exclusive for Microsoft but guess what... I don't care about brand loyalty like you do! Yeah, I have an awesome PC, a huge TV, and intent to purchase the PS3 and Wii, so why buy a 360 when I can use my PC for anything worth my time that comes out on that console? GoW is bound to come out for PC and if it doesn't I still have my friend's 360 to play it on. Yeah, I am not afraid to touch another platform and have fun doing it. Amazing, I know since everyone has to be on a side, right?
Yeah, these new consoles are becoming more like home PC's, but who cares? They still aren't as upgradeable as the PC and I hope to God they never become that way. Consoles provide a climax that everyone can program for, unlike PC's which are usually programmed to work with older technology so everyone can enjoy them and not only the people who can keep up with technology to an extent.
On the contrary, if you ask anyone who has ever played UT2004 or a similar game on PC and a console, the majority will say that PC was better because the controller devices allowed more flexibility and had a much faster reaction time with increased precision. So, technically you're... uh... wrong. Plus, people love emulators now and I believe I said I had the option to USE a controller through my PC, too. Maybe you were too angry and excited that you passed over that part.
As for your take on gaming experience, I don't disagree. But you have to realize that everyone has an opinion and it isn't going to be the same one you have the majority of the time. You'll need to grow up and learn that.
As for saying PC exclusive gamers are "suckers, and/or retarded" (you don't need that comma by the way) that goes far beyond me. I don't even know what you were trying to accomplish with that statement. Did someone say they were exclusive PC gamers on this thread? Hmm, I don't think so. Maybe you are so desperate to defend yourself you reached out to irrelevant topics or details. Good idea, it really enforces your credibility and makes you look intelligent! That was sarcasm and heavy, just in case you didn't notice it.
Microsoft is NOT the PC when it comes to games. They merely supply the most popular OS to run them on. But whatever, think what you'd like.
You act like I'm some kid, attempting to correct my grammar, making comments about "growing up". I'm a 35 y.o. who's been gaming since the early 80s. I have the opinion I do about PC gaming, because 1.) I've tried it, and it's not practical or fun IMO and 2.) people like you make me want to not associate with such partisan fanaticism.
The fact still remains, that while the PC is still "upgradeable", the cost to do so far outweighs the price of a next-gen console. I can spend $900 on the 360 and it's successor, and STILL never touch a PC gaming rig. Plus, whether you're willing to admit it or not, MS is IN FACT the primary representative of the PC and PC gaming. Tell me how many major devs and their games are associated with another OS other than Windows. THERE AREN'T ANY...which is why MS makes the distinction with Games for Windows now. Whether you've got a custom rig, a Dell, AlienWare...whatever...you're a MS/DirectX gamer. PLEASE try and prove me wrong.
And, BTW, I was merely making a point. How you got the silly idea I was "angry" or "excited" is beyond me. What I said was pretty much true; that you took offense to it only proves my point further.
I'm not a pc exclusive gamer though. Right now I have a good gaming pc (high school graduation present from 2 years ago, still runs well), a Gamecube, and a ps2 (Guitar Hero 2 is awesome). Come this time next month I will have a ps3, a wii, and a good gaming pc. I've pretty much got my bases covered on all the good games coming out, except Gears, but I'll have a 360 in two years or so. And yes, Windows is a Microsoft platform, but that's not the point. The consoles aren't Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, they're ps3, 360 and wii. If a game comes to the pc in addition to a console, then it's not exclusive for any of them. And yes, most games that come to consoles and pcs are better on pcs because of better control and mods, although if MS releases a keyboard the difference won't be so pronounced. Pcs also have the advantage of free online play (except MMOs of course).
I don't care that some 360 games come out for PC. I'd rather sit in front of my HDTV on a comfortable couch or recliner than sit at some 19" computer monitor. How many of you have surround on your PCs? Yeah you can use a mouse but it doesn't rumble, I like the rumble feature.
Yes, this is a AAA title that's been in development for a while. It hasn't quite gotten the recognition, cause it's been a little over shadowed by GoW, Mass Effect, and BioShock.
The reason that MS is intent on bringing some of these games to the PC as well is that they want to build a larger gaming community. MS realizes that not everyone is going to have a 360 after the first year, second year, or ever, but MS still wants to reach those gamers. When your PC is outdated and your getting ready to drop $300 on a new graphics card, well MS wants you to consider getting a 360 instead. Also, LIVE Anywhere will probably mean a subscription charge to also play from a PC, but have access to all of the wonderful things that XBL has to offer (XBLA, PC demos, movies, music, TV, etc.). Watch and see, this is (in my opinion) part of MS's BIG PICTURE!
What software will PC gamers be playing Two Worlds on?. PC/360 all the way it's simple. #1.1 as i posted this i scrolled up in case i had to add something but what you said made me laugh out loud, with that e-nuff was said.
The pc is not the same as the 360. And what about my post made you laught out loud exactly?
#1.8 I sure as hell hope they don't start charging subscription fees for my pc games. That would piss me off so much, because I've been playing games online for free for so long.
It will come to the PS3 later. Just releasing on the PC and 360 at same time. Developer said so on all games interactive with scott rubin. http://media.allgames.com/a...
Wow, people who were clueless about this like I was should listen to that podcast. It sounds like they're really doing a lot with this, and I can't believe that they're doing a ps3 and wii version, seems like a ton of work. I'm definitely looking forward to this on pc now, but I'm gonna wait until I see some gameplay and hear from some people who've played it before I make any proclamations of it being AAA. I hope that they can do what they say they want to.
For certain games like Unreal 2004 it is better to play on a pc because a controller doesn't have enough buttons. But playing a game on a PC is just waaaaay to expensive...plus playing online with somebody with a better rig can be a disadvantage. The 360 has an equal playing field.
I have a friend who is a pc gamer and hates consoles...He was really good in counterstrike and unreal 2004...of course he has like a $200 laser gaming mouse...$200 gaming keyboard....wow...thats $400 right there...I didn't even add the cost of the PC.
By the way, this game is going to ROCK!!!! It's good to be a 360 owner! :)
If it's out on PC you can still call it exclusive for it's exclusive on the consoles...
But come on seems that any game 360 says is only on 360/PC you fans say "ha here's yet another AAA title coming out". I'm sorry but not every game they make is AAA.
March....ok..Not my type of game anyways.
So how exactly does the PC not make the game exclusive to 360 when it comes to console's again?. Shadow Run's a Windows game and it's counter part is 360 exclusive console tittle. Threres no getting around it. 360/PC/cell Phone/Zune it's the way MS's marketing this vision to make CASSSSHHHHH!. Vista baby!. Live Anyware. Now go away!. "Exclusive console tittles" is that better or Exclusive to windows and 360 like the way MS calls it in it's own marketing downloads off of live.
kmis "I've never heard of this until now, so I wouldn't really say it's AAA. Plus, it's on the pc, so it's not so exclusive."
I disagree with your entire statement. Well I have heard of this game and after reading about it I do think it will be AAA. Why dont you check out the game before you decide instead of just saying it wont be AAA just because you havent never heard of it for that is absurd. Even if its on pc its still exclusive for it isnt on the consoles. Why do you think when people say next gen wars pc is nowhere in the conversation. And besides I dont play pc games except halo and thats only because i downloaded the free trial.
"People like me who don't have a 360 will still be able to play games like this and Bioshock, and the pc versions are usually better in my opinion because of the ability to get mods, which add considerably to the replay value."
I disagree. First off quality and price. Lets take F.E.A.R for example. I can spend money for a 2000 dollar pc and run F.E.A.R with all the settings turned on or buy a 300 dollar console and have all the settings turned on. And if your pc doesnt meet the specs on the box, your gaming experience will be meh.
2. Hassle of installation. With pc games you got to worry about drivers and all that bullsh!t while with a console I just put the disc in and its all good.
3. Tradeoff I guess if you would rather spend 2000 dollars for a pc as opposed to 300 dollar console and hassle with drivers just for mods then go right ahead. Seems pointless to me though.
Tut- "That must suck having your "AAA" titles available on the biggest gaming platform ever... PC."
Why would that suck? Is it bad that more gamers get to play such a high quality game or is that your just a fanboy who wanted to take a shot at the 360? hmm.
"Another big + for PC gaming is the flexibility for controls. Keyboard + Mouse or Logitech controller? I am thankful I have a choice."
I disagree to an extent. Yes you can fully customize your controls but console games do offer somewhat to fully customization of controls as well.
And element X(post 1.7) got it exactly right. I would rather play a game in front of my HDTV than on a pc anyday.
And despite UT being better on pc I think UT2007 will be equally good on all the platforms its coming out for(360,ps3,pc) but honestly I want to play Unreal Championship on the 360. Dont really care for the UT series.
Maybe what it takes to be a AAA game has just diminished to hype. Usually to be branded a AAA game, it would have to get great reviews or be part of an established franchise that gets great reviews. For example, some people might say White Knight Story on the ps3 is a AAA title based off of the strength of the trailer. I wouldn't though, not until reviews or at least previews of the gameplay are in. Whatever though. Call anything you want AAA.
It might be out of many people's ability to spend $2000 plus on a pc, but I already have one, so I intend to use it. And the controls on pcs are indeed much better. For one, you can use console controllers for games if you want to, and you can use the standard keyboard and mouse, which is great for fps, rts, and other genres. Plus if you've never played games with mods, then you're missing out. There were some great ones for Oblivion. I also have a 30 inch monitor and 5.1 speaker system, so I don't mind not sitting in front of an hdtv.
"it's on the pc, so it's not so exclusive"... Why do Sony fanboys keep saying this about games made for the PC and the 360. It is an exclusive as far as microsoft is concern.
It is an exclusive because if you want to play it on living room & your HD TV you have to have a 360. And you unless you have a high end PC to run the game to look near what the 360 looks you will be an idiot to buy a $2,000 PC just to play this game. Also, last time I check Halo two is a microsoft game and it is on the PC? Wonder why fanboy? Yes, because in order to play the game you have to have a PC running Windows which allows microsoft to make money.
This is the reason why microsoft is ok with spending money on the 360, since they have so many ways to make that money back and PC games is one of them. This game is license to microsoft and will each PC game thats made, microsoft gets money.
If a game comes out for the PS3 and the PSP can I argue that it's not an exclusive? Well why should this be any different?
I can care less if all 360 games come out for the PC, since it will encourage developers to make more games since they make double the proffit instead of making the game only for the PS3.
Name one game made for the PS3 that will also be available on the PC?
so here's what this game is about from their site...
"The world changed when Aziraal, the god of war, was slain in the huge battle long ago. The hordes of Orcs lost their divine leader and were forced to withdraw to the southern wastelands. Now, thousands of years later, the location of Aziraal's tomb is still unknown, well hidden by other gods who did not dare to entrust the secret to mere mortals.
However, now, a fragile peace between the civilized races and the hordes is at stake. When the dwarven mining expedition discovered an ancient temple dedicated to an unnamed deity - all of the world's most powerful factions saw it as a possible clue to the place of Azriaal's burial ground. A silent war has now begun and it will soon ignite the fires that will lead to the holy crusade of the Orcs. However, the real danger lies somewhere else. A powerful force churns silently - weaving a secret plot of fear and destruction. In the end one of the Two Worlds will remain.
The story starts shortly after the dwarven discovery when the Dwarven Mining Guild suffers an assassination of one of it's' most prominent members. A seasoned band of bounty hunters, among them the young hero and his sister, travels through Thalamont Mountains to the dwarven mining town of Tharbakin far to the north. When they decide to stop for a night in the secluded old mining settlement they are unaware that no human skill or weapon can protect them from the horrors which lurk in the seemingly calm valley.
The four mercenaries enter the valley's gates, but only one of them is destined to leave through them alive. A horrific ordeal awaits them - with the lone survivor rescued. Now separated from his sister, the young hero will begin his own crusade to take revenge on those who set the deadly trap that killed his fellow mercenaries. He enters onto a path of war against a mysterious power that, in the end, he must understand if he wants to survive. And, more importantly, he must learn the answers to all the burning questions that now lay in front of him.
Will he learn the nature of a shadowy figure that almost killed him in the town?
Will he learn what happened to his friends?
Will he ever meet his sister again?
Finally, what will he do with the power to choose only one from the Two Worlds?"
... So Dwarves VS. Orks... any LOTR fan should get a nut off to this.
I have seen some of this game here before and i might be looking forward to picking this up on my Xbox 360 with many other games. Lost Planet, Alan Wake, Forza Motorsport 2 etc etc. So many great games coming out for the Xbox 360.
I agree with you, and everyone else in here talks too much.
