Its a small developer, developing for consoles usually requires huge licesence fees to be paid to Microsoft and Sony(which in the end is borne by the consumer note how every console game is 10-20usd costlier then the PC counterpart). Along with that comes the cost to learn to develop for the console.

I think the Console market has barriers to entry which is why the Indie scene is so successful on PC. Recent example being of Torchlight which managed 500,000+ plus copies on PC alone. Which is a great acheivement for a low cost Indie title.

They're actually fully licensed for the 360 already (according to some design documents that come with Amnesia). It's a shame that they won't be bringing this to consoles, though. I've heard rumors that they're going to have to close their doors if they don't make enough profit off of this which is a tragedy.

It is too hard for console players tbh. they only need hack and slash games.
We don't want another game to be dumped down.

lol what a stupid commment, Amnesia on PS move would be amazing,

Mouse is plain better. Also like its mentioned above, console licensing fees are huge. Save the developer some slack and save afew bucks yourself get it on PC.

If you're talking about the Z-axis. Yes, very implementative. I'll support them by purchasing the game on steam.

-End statement

that would be good idea

It doesn't require a monster PC and is 15$

Just go buy it already

I can't stress enough how good this game is. Go and buy it, as well as any of their previous games if you haven't already. Would be a shame if Frictional Games went out of business, every game they've made so far has been excellent. I'd like to see them go on to make even better ones.
