Possibility of Torchlight on the PS3 Looking Grim

The Diable-style dungeon crawler Torchlight took the PC world by storm back in 2009, and both fans and hopefuls rejoiced when news of console ports surfaced. Though the Xbox 360 port is set to release soon, little has been said about the PS3 version, and there’s a good reason why.

Not a big deal. Paid $2 for it on my pc a long time ago. Its pretty good but why is this such a downer for some? Get it cheap for the pc. You can use a junk pc to play it.

thebudgetgamer2564d ago

i'll check the demo when it comes to the 360. my pc won't play anything.

STONEY42564d ago

Just try the PC demo on Steam. The requirements are insanely low. Like, Intel integrated graphics low.

Bigpappy2565d ago

No, you guys are wrong about this game. It is a very fun game to play. I think M$ might have had something to do with delaying the PS3 version. I got it on steams last year for $5 and play it all the through. I don't even game on PC anymore, but this was too sweet to pass up after reading all the hype. I will now pay at least $15 to play it on Xbox. But a PS3 version would have sold well also.

Game looks great to me, I would get it on PS3 if I could, but I'll be happy with the 360 version.

Very sad news. With MS as publisher, it's unlikely we'll ever see it. Would be one of the best additions to PSN, IMHO.

Lord_Doggington2564d ago

man if they only added multiplayer via live...that'd be something...

Christopher2564d ago

Looks like they're saving that for the sequel.

It's a great game, but it pales in comparison to the 2nd game. That's probably why people bash this game. The first game only took place in the same dungeon and contained no multiplayer. Plus with a XLBA release, it'll probably delay development on the 2nd game.

NiteX2564d ago

Actually it was many different dungeons. It just keeps going down in levels. You're not missing much. The classes are rather generic and boring. I left it for Titan Quest a while ago.

Kamikaze1352564d ago

What I mean is, the cave you enter in the beginning of the game is the same cave you're in at the end of the game. You're practically in the same dungeon and all floors are randomly generated. So there really isn't much variety.

I was going to buy it off of Steam, but I think I'll wait till it drops to $10 during a sale or something.

Why is it everytime a game isn't coming to ps3 the fanbase claim they don't want it anyway because it isn't great? Super Meat Boy, Torchlight, Gothic 4...its all the same comments

It's called fanboyism, don't act like you've no idea why this happens.

Parapraxis2564d ago

Believe it or not ChristianGamer, it goes the other way too.

Christopher2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

I'd ask you to not generalize the PS3 fanbase into a single group, plese.

nevimkdojsem22564d ago

Because they are genuinely not interested? I have a gaming PC, even prefered it to my PS3 in 2010 (because of Civilization 5, Minecraft, ME2), could download Super Meat Boy, Torchlight or Gothic right now from steam for next to nothing but I won't because they simply don't appeal to me.

divideby02564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

maybe some have other games to play... LBP2, KZ and DCU in the first couple of months of this year...
how many games can someone play.....

or you can look at it that my 360 will have a game to play besides Kinect.. problem is with the list above, I dont have time for it

and as pointed out its also on the PC

Persistantthug2564d ago (Edited 2564d ago )

It clearly says Microsoft is publishing the console version.
