Console S.T.A.L.K.E.R. depends on success of PC prequel

A 360 and PS3 game based on the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. series depends on how successful upcoming PC-only prequel S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky proves as well as how fast developer GSC Game World can master console development.

Speaking to VideoGamer.com at a press event for Clear Sky, GSC Game World's Oleg Yavorsky, who described the consoles as "basically a platform to let you earn some cash for the company", said that the team has "plans" for new IP it might release on consoles but "it's too early to talk about it".

"We received all the necessary permissions and licenses and dev kits and we're just starting to get familiar with the technology. It's a different type of development you need to do, lots of things to comply with, restrictions of the consoles. We are experimenting at the moment. But the plan is to bring something to the console later. Clear Sky is going to be PC only. Later on it depends on how successful and how fast we can master it." (PC, PS3, S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl, STALKER: Clear Sky , Xbox 360)

I never played this game
But I have heard that it is pretty good. Sounds like it would be a good addition to the consoles.

Didn't you read the article?

There is no console version of STALKER being planned, they're thinking of doing a new IP.

a shame
But it's still a shame that a good PC game with weak sales is not coming to consoles.Just port the original STALKER with the add-on (and some bug and gameplay fixes) for consoles and i bet the sales figures will be superior to PC sales.
