Xbox 360

I think since this game is released in episodes it would do very well on Xbox 360 live. as of march 2006 Xbox live has 6 million users? but any way just my thoughts and I know this is probley something the developers have already thought about, but I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents. Very good game BTW keep it up.

RE: Xbox 360

I have to disagree.
Putting it on the 360 would ruin the unique mouse-interaction aspect that makes it so... well.... unique.
Playing it without a mouse wouldn't feel right at all and would eliminate one of the coolest parts of the game.

Yeah, I'm sorry, I don't mean to rag on you, but I have to agree with Evil_Muska. I think you're completely missing the point of the game. It just wouldn't work on a console.

...Besides IMO no game played from the comfort of your couch can ever be immersive - but that's a topic for another conversation. Tongue

RE: Xbox 360

We have considered Xbox 360 live but the problem is that you have a 50mb limit and that is pretty impossible for us to manage. Perhaps in the future we might be able to sell all episodes as one Xbox 360 game? Who knows Tongue It all depends on how well the game does on the PC.

There is no support for OpenGL on Xbox, we would have to port.

RE: Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 would be the worst platform to put this game on, period.

You guys should rather let an eye on the PS3 or the Wii instead. The PS3 will let you use mouse and keyboard for this game, as with USB support. Many FPS games will be using the mouse and keyboard feature of the PS3. And also the 150MB(since 5th March) limit for XBL would not be any problem for the PS3 as it will allow you to use 500MB.

The Wii would also be a really nice system to deal with, I do think of the Wii-mote when I say that. The Wii-mote would fit this game really well, even BETTER than a mouse and a keyboard if you are asking me.

So I would rather recommend you guys to launch this game for the PS3 network or as a Wii-title rather than for the Xbox 360.

And just one more thing, awesome game, I will buy it as soon as it hits the stores!
