I'm a PC gamer and don't even own a PS3. The prices on them are just way too ridiculous for something that's limited to only gaming. I bought a PS1, and PS2 from pawn shops for my wife a number of years ago. But, eventually, you couldn't get any more decent games for them. So, now, they just sit on a shelf collecting dust!
But, this game looks like a really cool game. Not to mention that the main character is one of my favorite actresses. I'd really like to play this game, but I'm not willing to pay 3 to 4 hundred dollars + the price of the game just to play one game!
I'm sorry to hear about your frustration. There are plenty of people who buy a console for one game, I bought a ps3 for God of War 3. As time went on, I ended up purchasing plenty Sony exclusives such as infamous, uncharted, journey, the last of us bc I had a ps3 laying around and loved the games to death. Made my purchase of the ps3($350 at the time) worth it. Btw, where are you shopping at? bc just last black Friday Sony had a holiday bundle that included infamous 1
I "really" wish we could afford to buy the PS3. My wife and I have talked about it. But, on our fixed income, it's really hard to find a way to do that, or justify it. We might try to this year, but it's hard to say. We've been hit hard with hot water heater and swamp cooler replacement. That wound up killing our plans to remodel our horrible bathroom.
I'd just like to see this game presented for PC's as well. We'll see.
I see fell for you man compared to PC prices for games are all ways more on consoles. But you have to consider upgrade cost on a PC i haven't done the math but i assume its catches up or exceeds the consonles.
The problem for me is that I've already spent almost $3000.00 on a new computer because that's where I play my games. The advantage of a computer as a gaming platform is that gaming is not all it can do. And, a good computer with the right graphics card(s) (I have two graphics cards in a Crossfire configuration) is graphicly capable of running ANY game developed today, and probably well into the future. As a matter of fact, consoles are only now finally scrambling to upgrade enough to be compete with the graphic capabilities of of today graphics cards. And frankly, the graphics cards available today are becoming so much more powerful than the graphic demands of today's game graphics that today's cards will still be viable through several generations of developer advancements in graphic presentation, even with the near realistic 3D imagery presented in many games today. To top that off, the customization capabilities of computers is so vast that it is possible to assemble a machine that will outlast any console currently on the market today. The ability to watercool most of the components in a computer ensures the high performance and longevity consoles can only dream of. For example, if I ran my PS2 anywhere near as much as I do my computer, it would've died within 6 months to a year after I purchased it. The PS2 was notorious for overheating to the point of breakdown because of inadequate cooling. Hopefully, the PS3 and PS4 will have addressed those issues. But, still, constant use will still shorten the lifespan of a console considerably more than my PC. And only my CPU is watercooled. Now-a-days, you can watercool the CPU, graphics cards, motherboard, and RAM, and you can make it look really cool in the process. Finally, a PC can play ANY game out there UNLESS the developer just plan refuses to develope for the PC.
Let me ask you this: Can your console run word processing programs, spreadsheets, databases (beyond simple addressbooks)? Can you console "create" movies and cg animations? Can your console do desktop publishing, all while "still" being capable of playing 95 percent of the games developed on the marked today? (The missing 5 percent are created by developers that refuse to open to the huge market of PC gamers.) In reality, developers that refuse to develope for the PC market, are only shooting themselves in the foot by cutting themselves off from a HUGE source of income!
Hey, I would never suggest that people that use and enjoy console systems should ever stop using them. If that's what you're most comfortable with, then by all means, enjoy it to the max!!! I'm just saying that I wish they would port this game to the PC 'as well'! Also, as I mentioned earlier, I think developers that refuse to develope for the PC are just shooting themselves in the foot, cutting themselves off from a huge source of revenues. Especially with a game like this. But hey, who am I but a potential customer?
Hopefully Quantic Dream has someone on the team that reads all the comments you are making. I am very sure that David Cage would like everyone to enjoy his games. He should take it in consideration one day and I agree it would be amazing to see Quantic Dream games on PC.
Yeah Ewookie 1 if you notice more and more games are starting to port to everything. Good example is Watch Dogs. They are porting to everything including PC. Sometimes I think it has to do with what they have in their budget. But we'll just have to wait and see.
I haven't confirmed this but from reading another blog on the game. There are apparently 20 different endings and over 75 chapters. I don't know how this person knows this information. Sounds amazing. Please don't kill the messenger, if I am wrong.
I'm a PC gamer as well, but I also have the 360 (the system I purchased first) and a PS3 (I actually brought the system for Uncharted 2, MGS4, and Infamous). Like Schwann187 said, after awhile, more awesome exclusives come out for the system that makes it worth it. You spent $3000 on your PC (I only spent about $850 for mine), that's a helluva lot more than you'll have to shell out for the PS3 and Beyond 2 souls. As of now you can get a 125g PS3 for $250 on Amazon. Another $50-60 for the game and you should be set. If you like this game, you could try heavy rain, which was pretty good as well. Think about it.
I get what you're saying, all I'm saying is that they don't agree with you, and this isn't about the "betterment of the gaming community", or the altruistic idea of allowing PC gamers to experience these games. It's about business. I've heard this argument before, and it comes back to the same thing; This game is made and published by SONY, and if you want to play this game, you have to buy a PS3.
Rather than participating in the PC arms race and spending $3,000 so you can see a few extra blades of grass in Crysis or whatever, and that you'll have to upgrade again and dump even more money into it, you could have taken some of that money and bought a PS3. And if you're on a "fixed income", what are you doing spending three grand on a PC?
