Can someone give me a stupid link to perhaps a post regarding why "Freespace 3" will not be produced (well atleast for now) ... i guess regarding the legal matters of it.

I'm sure everyone hates talking about it, but if you show me a link where i can read it, I would appreciate it.

Uuuhmmm... I don't think that post exists... But on legal matters, I think its safe to say that Interplay didn't want to make any futher Freespace games, because of the (supposedly) low sales of Freespace 2. And owning the rights to the FS franchise, no one, not even Volition could make futher FS games without Interplay's OK.  However, with Volition now suing Interplay, who knows what the future holds...
I have returned... Again...

 
Thanks for the quick answer... it should be interesting to see how bioware and Vio. due vs stupid Interplay

Sooo... if   decided they wanted to make a new FS game, they'd need to convince Titus to buy the rights fron Interplay, yes?

not necessarly: buying a license would be enough, and probably cheaper.

No, Volition would need to convince THQ, who owns them now, to buy the rights from Interplay/Titus/Whoever is in charge at the moment.

Interplay is slowly inploding and I'm just waiting for it to collapse or reform or something.

Collapse is good   They might just auction off the rights   I`m sure V might want the rights to their own game if they got them at bargin prices.

yeah, and maybe V doesn't care about FS anymore, that also is possible.

They still pay for PXO don`t they? They could have pulled the plug.

Heck, it never even made it overseas to Israel - FS1 did. I had to... aquire... a copy until I could get one from the States.

America, stand assured that Israel truly understands what you are going through.

"...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 heard about it first when Max Sterling dropped it to a short visit at the X-Wing Legacy boards. Later I saw it in a local shop. It stood there for quite a while until I bought it (Still for the original price  , although it was already quite old at this time...)

Well, I first heard of FS1 when it came bundled with my computer circa 1997. Loved it so much I pre-ordered FS2.
