What the........why?!
What is this heresy?!

qface643664d ago

doesn't really concern me since im not a pc gamer i just think its odd that they are going to port it over to the psp and iphone but not the PC

then again EA games are heavily pirated on PC

That there is no Dead Space 2 for PC. I played all three versions of Dead Space from three different platforms and have to admit, the best one was on PC. I was planning on the PC version of DS2 but alas, it will have to be for the consoles.

darkmurder3664d ago

Aww shucks, oh well consolers can enjoy Sims 3 at least.

snaz273664d ago

we already have a bunch of great action adventure, we are severly lacking survival horrors, Dead Space has to be my favourite one too, but now it is no more, EA may aswell just make a new IP then change what made Dead Space so awesome, and sims 3 on consoles? meh! no thanks, not my kinda game.

Who honestly thought Sims 3 wasn't coming to consoles?? The thing I wan't to know is it gonna be like previous console incarnations and completly suck compared to the PC version and not include house builder etc.. I mean the PS3 and 360 are both mouse/keyboard capable the PS3 more so. So why not?

whoelse3663d ago

Sims is best on PC, so any port will not be as good.

evrfighter3663d ago

with the direction I've heard DS2 is going....I don't think I'll be playin it at all. PS3 will be collecting dust till ff13 comes out sadly

That's awesome I would love to get Sims 3 on consoles.

The Milkman3664d ago

Yes! Lol I own this on my PC but I want to get it on console because my PC isnt as powerful as my console and it gets choppy at high settings. Before we get off to a bad start I said "MY PC" lol. I just suck when it comes to PC gaming so I dont even bother upgrading. Even though the PC has some very fun and interesting mods for The Sims 3. Hopefully they will have some way of allowing you to download houses on the console though.

champ213664d ago

youdo realise its nothing to be excited about.

A 3yr old pc made properly will run circles around any console.

Consoles come with so many hidden costs to gaming you have no idea. Sims 3 on consoles wont be the same as on Pc. In terms of mods there will be none which will shorten what you can do with the game, sure EA may give you some extra houses but they will charge you for it via DLC (which is definetly not a good trend), On the PC version users had the control to make more content for the game. On console version this control will be taken away, how is having no freedom a good thing?

also i feel its odd that you are fine with consoles running most games at low to medium settings, while on PC you demand that it runs on the highest settings. If you are fine on the console being Low/med setting then why the double standard for PC?

riksweeney3664d ago

Probably the reason why DS2 won't be on the PC is because piracy is so rampant on the system. BioShock 2 is already on the torrents so it's hardly surprising.

GamerPS3603664d ago (Edited 3664d ago )

Halo 3 is on PC? I didn't know that. It must be 'coz it's also on torrent.

Also, I saw Bioshock2 360 version before PC version on torrent. They must have typed it wrong.

Charmers3664d ago

@ riksweeney

Yeah you didn't bother to mention that the xbox 360 version of Bioshock 2 has been on the torrents for nearly a week now ........... hm funny that.

riksweeney3664d ago


I don't know how to pirate games on the 360, but I imagine it's slightly more involved than downloading the torrent, using WinZip to extract the files and clicking on setup.exe

Then again, I could be wrong.

Charmers3664d ago

whether you know how to pirate on the xbox 360 or not is irrelevant. What is relevant is that with EVERY game that comes out on the 360 and PC it is ALWAYS the 360 version that gets leaked first.

Your comment was geared at going "hey look guys the PC version of Bioshock 2 is already being pirated" I merely pointed out that the Xbox 360 version has been out for over a week on the torrent sites but you didn't bother to mention that did you.

riksweeney3664d ago

So you're saying that piracy on the 360 is just as bad if not worse than on the PC and that only 1 in 40 people who played DMC4 on the 360 legitimately owned a copy?

Charmers3664d ago

I am saying that the xbox 360 version of Bioshock 2 was leaked onto the net at least 1 week before the PC version. Which is considerably different to what you were trying to say which was "OMGZ the PC version is so like on the net already".

The PC has problems in the area of piracy but it is wrong to neglect the fact the 360 not only has problems with piracy it also has the additional problem of rental sales and used game sales. Your initial comment sought to JUST highlight the fact that the PC version of Bioshock 2 is being pirated. I merely sought to bring balance and show that the Xbox 360 version has been out for a week on the torrents.

evrfighter3663d ago (Edited 3663d ago )

modern warfare 2 and some other big names were leaked well over a week before the pc version torrents started showing up.

I bought a 360 the other week. You can be rest assured as soon as my warranty is up I'm modding it.
