Gaming companies have been known to do some pretty stupid things. Like Atari turning down an offer from Nintendo to promote the NES (something like that).
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

B/c if you're making a video game and you want to target the biggest possible market out there, you'd make the game a console one.  I would hope they'd do it on the PC, though.

Whatever, I don't think they'll make a FS

Some dudes put out a mech sim on console which has a whole damn cockpit for the game. Now, if that came out for a console FreeSpace, I wouldn't be complaining. Certainly, one of the main issues I have with any console space sim is that there just aren't enough buttons. ;)

That's why my stance against a console game isn't based on controls, (since you can create your own custom controler) but is based on the fact that the hardware is fixed and for a good tour de force for audio/visual effects a next-gen console or current PC is needed.

I won't lie to you, I must admit that I indeed do love my GBA. but I aint getting a tv console without a very good reason, as I'd probably rather build myself a home entertainment computer based on the mini-itx form factor instead.

"...The quintessential quality of our age is that of dreams coming true. Just think of it. For centuries we have dreamt of flying; recently we made that come true: we have always hankered for speed; now we have speeds greater than we can stand: we wanted to speak to far parts of the Earth; we can: we wanted to explore the sea bottom; we have: and so  on, and so on: and, too, we wanted the power to smash our enemies utterly; we have it. If we had truly wanted peace, we should have had that as well. But true peace has never been one of the genuine dreams - we have got little further than preaching against war in order to appease our consciences. The truly wishful dreams, the many-minded dreams are now irresistible - they become facts." - 'The Outward Urge' by John Wyndham

"The very essence of tolerance rests on the fact that we have to be intolerant of intolerance. Stretching right back to Kant, through the Frankfurt School and up to today, liberalism means that we can do anything we like as long as we don't hurt others. This means that if we are tolerant of others' intolerance - especially when that intolerance is a call for genocide - then all we are doing is allowing that intolerance to flourish, and allowing the violence that will spring from that intolerance to continue unabated." - Bren Carlill

I don't want to say anything that could scare off dave, but I realy don't like the way V has gone sence about 5 months after FS2 was relesed, nearly all the staff whent silent, and though I know I'll get corected on this by dave, it seems as though there was a major shift in the way V goes about makeing games, for those of you who think V makeing FS3 as a (primarily) console game would be OK I have but only two words for you, Red Faction, it's been around for what 1/5th as long and it's comunity is alredy dead, this is becase it was unmodable and not mod frendly (exept in multiplayer were it was a little TOO mod frendly if you know what I mean), V would not relese any file formats, therefore no one could make any tools for editing the models, the tools they did relese came with dumbed down models that lacked many of the cooler features, looking into things most of the features you would have expected to be table modifyable was hard coded, about all you could do was change the aperence of some things and cheat (wich many many many people did a whole lot)

I don't entirely agree. Consoles can still slap some PC ass, I don't care what the numbers say - just play Halo on a PC and on an Xbox, and you can feel it. And that's nothing to mention Halo 2. :)

I got a PS2, a Gamecube, and a PC. I use all of 'em. If FS3 is made, I'll play it. If it's out on PC, I'll rush out and buy it. If it's out on a console, I'll rush out and buy it. If it's good, I'll keep it. If not, I'll take it back to the shop. No more problem. :D

An FS FPS sounds very cool, by the way. Anyone here mod Half-Life? ;7
