Why shouldn't Volition make FS3 if they can and wish too? Just because you or I don't like space-sims on consoles doesn't mean you have to be moron.

so f'in what? I'd buy the game only to see get closure on what was planned as a trilogy. heck, I'd even by the console to go with it, if that was the case.

Volition would never be stupid enough to put a goddamned SPACE SIM on a console.

maybe it isn't their call.
and still, it's all speculation right now. you could interpret half a dozen different meanings in that quote, for example.

Eh?  FS would work perfectly on a console - it's pretty much an arcade game as is.  And for those of you who disagree with me, i say Starfox......

And how, exactly, do you propose we order our wingmen around? Or handle subsystem targeting? Or energy management?

Or FRED?

Personally, if FS3 came out on console, I would disown any knowledge that it was canon, and I wouldn't follow it with any campaigns.

I have to agree with Rake, but with the notable addition, only as long as either Interplay or THQ has any word in the matter.

If the :V: guys were allowed to make a game THE WAY THEY WANT IT, then I'm all for it.

BTW if this ever happens I thik SCP will be a fundament they would have no way to disregard, even if its a minor project in international terms.

Hmm...the FS3 bomb explodes, once again.

Well, moving to a more mature piece of the world:

What rights do the Hard Light community posses in terms of ownership and decision over the fate of FS?
This is not a theoretical question, but a legal one. I know we can retell the stuff about patents ownerships ect. However I have a feeling that to small degree even a the companies have to admit the community has contributed more than enough to get a minor partial right over the fate of FS.

Ladies and gents, I direct your attention to the following:

Consider if you will, the situation from an economic standpoint – the market for console games is growing rapidly with the X-Box, PS2, and Game Cube.  There are more fans of consoles than there are of PCs, a fact which has made itself rather well known in my city at least.  If you were a game developer, and you were to make a game, would you do so for PCs on a smaller market with few potential and probable consumers or would you do so for a console on a larger market with more potential and probable consumers?  They’d only be doing what businesses by nature must do.

EDIT: On the subject of rights to FS, we as a community hold none.  We do not hold any patents, we are not a legal entity, we are a small minority, and we don't really have any power in terms of buying power (excluding those of us who are willing to throw in multiples of thousands of USDs into a game).

In order;
(i.e. Ps2 controller)
Pause menu (could also use yellow view buttons as on the N64 pad, or the d-pad), shoulderpad buttons, can be dumped as uneccessarry.  FRED - don't really need for a console game, or can release levels via an online service.

if [V] wrote FS3 for the console then ported to the PC it would be the biggest disaster in Space Flight Simulations since Chris Roberts Sold out and made that **** movie and let Erin/Eric (what ever his brothers name is) make Privateer 2 (prophecy wasn't _that_ bad and had the spiffy map)

IF Volition got serious - wrote a new game engine from scratch simultaneously targetting both PC and Console with slightly different engines - making the console version tailored to the console's strengths and the PC version just as spiffy good as the previous ones and using all their spiffy game making abilities that i know are there and didn't show up on Red Faction thanks to them only having three months to port - THEN it would kick butt

I don't mind them making a console version - so long as the PC version doesn't suffer from it like with Red Faction
