Developer Hi-Rez has confirmed that there are currently no plans to release a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version of Tribes: Ascend.

The story is too old to be commented.

Well its natural.

PC= Fast & furious gaming

Console = Lazy & relaxed.

too bad I was a huge Tribes:AA fan for the ps2 back in the day.

Good for them , the mmo nature and the fast paced of the game doesnt feel possible as is on any consoles

ninjahunter2051d ago

Lol, Free to play on console. Then how would Microsoft and sony leech off the devs?

Go ask CCP how they made it work it with Sony for Dust 514.

It's just too fast paced to be workable on a controller. You need to do precise snaps or flicks of the mouse to pull off blue plater special, sniper shots, or even just line yourself up correctly for a steal. Plus, you need to be able to look around in all directions VERY quickly, as your opponents are in the air about 90% of the time and moving very quickly.

You could reason that the game would just be a bit slower on consoles, but it just wouldn't be the same without the break-neck speed.

whoever disagreed with you hasn't played tribes or pc shooters.

Theres a reason why even unreal tournament 3 had to be slowed down for the console versions.

Baka-akaB2051d ago

That's because at any moment you can expect someone to throw Halo or gears at you . As if it was nearly the same

As an example, If a twitch shooter like quake live can run "in browser" I'm sure a console could run something like tribes as it does run on low end PC's.

After all, UT3 had keyboard/mouse support on PS3, why not tribes?

Guessing its the resources that would be required to port properly.

BTW, must download this on my PC, its had many, many good reviews ...

Tribes is a twich shooter on top of a mmo . We have only what two mmos so far properly running on ps3 wich much sacrifices , and dont know yet if Dust514 will be as rich or fast paced as something like Tribes .

Support for keyb and mouse on ps3 is indeed ignored , but wouldnt change the fact that as a non default and standard control scheme , they'd still need to come up with a gamepad based defaut gameplay , and change the game for it .

UT3 isnt a good example , as it was the worst unreal tournament this far , and a shadow of it's former self , between its poor man's gear of war copy for sp , and comprised and dumbed down gameplay in mp

True about UT3, (UT PC for me) But the point is sony is open to this control scheme..

Thats a good start.

Afterall, the new Valve counter strike going to support K/M on PS3 and possibly cross platform..

Surely thats a good thing.
