Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
RTS games also kinda belong on PC, at least for now. While Universe at War had an excellent RTS control scheme for console, it also had a small variety of units. Its difficult for RTSes to be played on consoles, at least at this point in time, simply due to their lack of a quick pointing device. Although my eye is on End War to see how their voice command scheme plays out.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
I suppose one of the reasons I prefer concept of the Wii over other consoles is the fact that, whilst a gamepad is no match for a mouse, the Wii controller at least gives that kind of level of 'freedom' in your motion.

Yea. If the Wii's hardware was more powerful, it might be a legit 3rd gen RTS contender.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed Demo
Exactly like Rockstar did with GTA4 you mean?

yeah, GTA4 is on every system sure  :rolleyes:     

 There is a huge difference between:
GTA4: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
SW-FU: PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, second-generation N-Gage, iPhone, mobile phone, and PlayStation 2  :blah:

It's also listed for other consoles, and the PC, that's the entire point. Just because LucasArts don't have an identical release method doesn't mean that it is not only common, it's almost expected for PC Releases to appear some time after a console release.

I don't need to bet, it's historically true, regardless of whether the Force Unleashed comes out for PC or not. If it doesn't, then it doesn't, that will not change the fact that PC versions come out after the console releases of console games. Makes sense really.

LucasArts may not release the game for PC, though I do suspect they will buckle to pressure in the end, since they have a 360 version, the conversion isn't nearly as difficult as from some other platforms, and I've never known LucasArts turn their nose up at a profit opportunity, but it's always a possibility, but that wasn't what I was saying.
