Should Star Wars: The Old Republic Make The Move to Next-Gen Consoles?

Why hasn't Star Wars: The Old Republic been ported to consoles yet? An associate writer from Middle of Nowhere Gaming analyses why BioWare has not yet made this massive move. (BioWare, EA, gamescom, PC, PS4, Star Wars:The Old Republic, Xbox One)

If the studio wants to bring it to current-gen consoles they can do it.

Go course, and if DCUO and FF14 are any indication, it could do well. There is a market. Maybe it would help to breathe more life into the game.

No, because the game is a snore-fest.

It's a character driven game, like in a singleplayer game, but it's a MMO.

That's what went wrong with this game, and why it's a snore fest. Character driven games are made to make you feel special, but when thousands of other players also are as ''special'' It's not fun

I have not played the MMO, but KOTOR, the first, was one of the greatest games I've played and I would love to play an updated version of that game, more like a open sandbox if the game can be fix that way, like No Man Sky..... Wow, what a great idea that would be.

Never played it but hear lots about it (I'm gonna throw this in because there is never an article about it) if they can port old Republic why can't we get total wars I loved it for PC but don't have one that can play the new ones as I'm not a PC fan. Come on give me total wArs, damn now I think I may have a trolling bug in me I'm gonna write this in every article!!

Please, no more star wars, make it stop.

No way! I especially can't wait for the new Battlefront

Yes, because its so hard for you to not play any Star Wars games or watch any Star Wars movies.

People love Star Wars, whether you like it or not. It isn't going anywhere.

I think it would be a good move. There is huge potential in this market if a developer could strike the right nerve.

F2P games are totally reliant on exposure to lots and lots of people. 10million PS4 gamers might sound like a lot, but it really isn't in terms of the f2p revenue model.

It isn't worth porting yet.

No thanks, played it before it went F2P.

I want KotOR 3.

What about a proper KOTOR 3?

If they would drop the MMO aspect of it, it would be a great single player game. Tweak some of the group quests to make them solo-able, or make it so that you can take multiple of your companions on them.

I didn't particularly enjoy it on PC, so I wouldn't play it. Many others might though. So, go ahead.

If they made SWtor I would buy it day one. I just hate playing games on PC. I would not care about the fee or business model. If it has any kind of resemblance to KOTOR I am all in.

Make it X1 exclusive to to keep with tradition.

I was 100% certain I'd see that last line of yours.

Not certain whether I'm glad I was right, or disappointed you didn't defy expectations.

I just want a new single-player KOTOR. But what do I know? I only spend a few thousand dollars a year on games.

I sound a bit bitter there, I suppose. Honestly, I bought both previous KOTORs used, but I had little money then. Now I would gladly buy a new single-player KOTOR full price. I do not like, nor will I ever support (financially), this new social generation of games. I like to explore worlds without someone exclaiming, "OMG! I LOL'D! ROFL..."

Example: I have been playing a lot of Path Of Exile lately, and there was an unfortunate event where I found myself in an arena, not knowing that it would lead into a social "instance", and I was accosted by some person, who exclaimed, as I was running towards the exit, "Get back here, LOL!" Needless to say, I had a hard time, after running away from this actual person, getting myself immersed back into the land of Wraeclast. But this is a free to play game, so I did not get too perturbed by the whole situation, and I'll keep playing the game through it's various incarnations. I'll just be sure to avoid any area that seems... inhabited.

I'm not against people having a good time socially, but I do wish that series that started out as single-player series stayed that way. Especially RPGs. Obviously POE was never meant to be a single player only experience, and it's free, so I can't bitch too much, but other than that, yes, I'd like my KOTORs, and Dragon Ages, and Elder Scrolls to stay LOL free.

Bring it, let the player decide.
