Penumbra/Amnesia for consoles?

While I was playing Penumbra and amnesia this past week, I thought how cool Penumbra and/or amnesia would be for something like....lets say an xbox 360. I realize the low possibility but i would have to say it would be cool.

RE: Penumbra/Amnesia for consoles?

To be fare, I think most horror games should be played on PC. Something about physically pulling and moving objects with the mouse makes the game that much better (another reason it shouldn't be on console, interaction would be difficult)

I understand what you mean, but the interactions could be brought over. I could even think of some controller commands for interactions. the first one that came into my head was Holding down LB and while holding that down using LT and RT to move doors for example. I know thats not the most significant idea but it works.

If you like to try playing with a gamepad you can try (demo works) the onlive version, it has gamepad support. I think it works rather well, especially considering the game was not created with gamepads in mind.

hmm, I dont have a gamepad but I might try to get one maybe if they are not expensive.
And what about a Multiplayer? I know that sounds kinda dumb because it would not go with the story of Amnesia or penumbra but.........you know what....... okay what would be cool (Lets use Penumbra BP for example) if there were like 2 or 3 or even more people playing through penumbra maps trying not to be found by the infected. but at the same time a couple people are playing as the INFECTED trying to hunt the PHILIPs(or their username). If you get what I mean by all this tell me what you think, Im curious about what others are thinking.

RE: Penumbra/Amnesia for consoles?

I may have to try it with a pad, might work well, but I am used to pc more Tongue

Multiplayer has been mentioned a few times in threads. I like the idea of a "hide n seek" sorta mode. One person hides in the castle (as Daniel) and the other hunters them down (as a grunt or brute) but they have the advantage of destroying objects and door e.t.c. Things like team deathmatch would be ridiculous haha

Haha yeah this isnt call of duty but "hide n seek" would be pretty cool I would probably even pay for it if it was developed

RE: Penumbra/Amnesia for consoles?

I think that it would be a really good idea but we know that its very unlikely. I love the thought of putting Amnesia into my PS3 or something like that.

RE: Penumbra/Amnesia for consoles?

Even though this sounds sad, the thought of Amnesia having PS3 Trophys is just EPIC! I think Frictional Games need to go into this area for a horror game
