Sega to stop support for Aliens vs Predator on consoles

Segas Community Manager Clumsyorchid shocked the AvP player base today with a forum post:

"I've just received a mail this AM regarding patches for the console versions of AVP and I regret to inform everyone that these have sadly been scrapped.

I had previously made a claim that these were coming and at the time, this was very much on the table. For the console community, I apologize, as I know there are many features and updates that you'd like to see. I'll keep fighting internally for this to happen, but until I hear otherwise, there will not be a console patch for either Xbox or PS3."

I think it's a very cool game, despite it not being perfect.

captain-obvious5057d ago

no wonder
this game floped on consoles

Double Toasted5057d ago

Some people are so dumb aren't they?

On topic: They're not putting any more effort into it because more than likely they're working on a sequel. And expect the potential for this franchise to end up on the 3DS...


Blacktric5057d ago

What the fuck? I was just thinking about buying the game since it's price dropped a bit but what the hell is this? The game released in February come on!

Perjoss5057d ago

there are many games that i would not play from start to finish even if someone payed me the full price of the game, sadly this is one of those games.

toaster5057d ago

I have it for PC too. The singleplayer is awesome as well, don't skip out on it just because of no console MP support. It's a great game in my opinion and you should definitely buy it.

Hellsvacancy5057d ago

It floppep coz it was crap, i knew that b4 id even played it (i rented it)

Rebellion should either give up or stick 2 makin PC games, all there games this gen hav been poor, did any mofo hav the misfortune in playin Shellshock 2? after 20 mins i turnt it off and rapped it back up

Id like it more than any-1 to hav a GREAT AvP game its just we dont stand a chance if Rebellion are the mofos 2 do it

Fingers crossed for Alien Colonial Marines

GameOn5057d ago

I was under the impression AvP did very well in the sales department.

HammockGames5057d ago

Too bad it apparently tanked. And too bad that support is tanking too.

When it was released I was hoping it would score great (it didn't).

Then I tried the MP PC demo thinking it was probably better than the reviews claimed (it wasn't).

I'm still hoping something sweet comes out of Colonial Marines, but I'm not as optimistic as I used to be...

I don't get it. It's not like they're exploring foreign territory here. Think about it: guns, aliens, space marines. There's tons of great games with these concepts implemented the right way (and also a lot that don't). So there's no excuse why somebody can't churn out a proper current gen Aliens game.

Ain't nothin' in the world get Black Dynamite more mad than some jive ass sucka dealin' smack to the kids!

Quagmire5057d ago


lmfao, loved the movie

On Topic: WTF M8! I actually liked the new AvP game despite its flaws, was willing to pick it up again now its cheap. But seriously, no patch? You better have a good reason for this, and its either your announcing AvP2, or updating us on the new Aliens FPS game coming out later.

ChocolateGiddyUp5057d ago

But Black Dynamite...*I* sell drugs to the community!

BYE5057d ago


Isn't that just another way to say "it sucks!" ?

hakis865057d ago

I think the singleplayer was cool, and multiplayer as well. But I can see what would annoy people and where they could make improvements (i.e. graphics on the consoles, especially the poor PS3 port...lazy Rebellion)

BattleAxe5057d ago

Its a junk game anyways, who cares...Sega hasn't had a good game in years.

eggbert5057d ago

but their great games are always overshadowed and don't sell well. Either that, or there just isn't any marketing.

Bayonetta, Total War series, etc.

ColdFire5057d ago (Edited 5057d ago )

Total War series says HI :D

(Total War also sells well so, huh?)

pixelsword5057d ago

I mean, it's all been the same thing since the first AVP came out:

- Aliens kill everything else

- Marines kill everything else

- Predators kill everything else

all on a bunch of small, multi-level maps to make the action appear more intense.

They should have switched it up a little. Maybe I'm wrong, but the MP didn't leave a good impression on me in terms or refreshing game-play.

dizzleK5057d ago

how about a refund for anybody who bought that map pack you just released? what a dick move. i don't play the game but i guess sega needs the resources for the latest sonic turds that they're crapping out.

BeaArthur5057d ago

That will disappoint all 5 people still playing it.

Quagmire5057d ago (Edited 5057d ago )

Deespite it being the fastest selling game in UK this year, and best selling game on Steam.

Make like a tree, and fuck off, troll.

BeaArthur5057d ago

Does that make you one of the 5?

distorted_reality5057d ago

It very quickly dropped out of the top sellers list on Steam (i.e within a week), and it has been a flop as far as PC player base goes, just check out the steam player stats.


I didn't enjoy the game at all, and while it's a sad day for owners of the console version of the game, I honestly can't say i'm surprised.

Corrwin5057d ago

Thanks for buying our game. Fuck you.


SEGA Fuck You Dept.

ASSASSYN 36o5057d ago (Edited 5057d ago )


I am glad I got this game for twenty bucks.

Corrwin5057d ago

I'm waiting for it to drop to around £10, too :) I'd love to support an AVP game, but SEGA are (along with Activision) on my list of publishers to buy late and buy cheap, because of their attitudes.

Trunkz5057d ago (Edited 5057d ago )

Wow they sacked console players?

Thank buddha I'm a PC Gamer, now where is my BF3? :D
