In the most recent NCSoft conference call, a question came up about the console version of Guild Wars 2. NCSoft had a few things to say about it and GuildWarsInsider.com has the audio.
I am slowly going beyond "anxiously awaiting" this game and approaching "gradually resenting" their methods. One beta test in spring is the only way they are going to have an idea on release window? This game has been in a playable state in demo for a solid year already, actually longer. Either they took a vertical slice far too early and showed it publicly, they have the worst producers/director in the industry for scheduling and planning, or they are becoming to "head down" in their development to see that their "when it is done" approach and releasing crumbs of useless info is more annoying than helpful at this point. Every PC game I have really wanted for the past year(s) has been pushed, had (and still has) no release date, and still hasn't made any firm commitment to actual launch. Torchlight 2 is months overdue after guaranteeing a launch last year, Firefall was due in Dec and isn't even doing a firm release at all, Diablo 3 is delayed and still redoing major systems and is buggy in beta, and Guild Wars 2 I played last March and still is no closer to having a release window after a FULL YEAR of more production? Ridiculous.
Can't rush perfection.
I am really looking forward to this game on consoles. I hope it does well too, so that other big name MMORPGs will follow GuildWar2 footsteps.
well, I guess we know the console it will be release ps3,it may land on 360 but only if microsoft doesnt screw the port for their console.
I think they basically confirmed PS3 version. Great news, I was waiting for a MMORPG on console. I had fun with the first Guild Wars when I had a gaming PC
The more I hear about this game the more it sounds less like an MMO, and more of some cheap console RPG like Dragon Age 2. Oh well at least SWTOR is great. Shame NCsoft is in charge.
Nothing's been confirmed regarding a console port, this story is a joke. GW2 is looking excellent though and I'm sure I speak for all true fans when I say I hope ArenaNet take their time and don't rush the game and release it when it's ready and not a second sooner. Seriously read the article next time people and not just the heading...
One of the reasons that it's probably being released ( or being to) on consoles is that it works so well with the controller. Which you can play on your big screen tv that would be amazing. If any of your friends have Guild Wars 1 have them show you PVP you can go in as "viewer" it's amazing. It's probably packed right now as we speak.
See I used to play GW back in the day when I played PC and I always found the PvP just mehhh :/ Spent over 100 hours in the game but very little of it actually in PvP because of this. Nevertheless, GW2 looks phenomenal! Hope this is true...would love to play this on my PS3!
I agree with last poster late 2012 is fine because GW2 will last a long long time...perfection takes time boy they are going to make millions.....
