Assuming this OP isn't fictional..

 

Am I the ONLY one that read that it would be coming out for PC after the PS4?  It's not "Console Only" ... Jeez people.  READ.

 

It hurts.  It physically hurts knowing the average person out there has the attention span of a dementia patient.

The OP was conveniently edited.  There is a small line of text at the bottom right of the post that shows when it was edited.  So you're not the only person that read the post in that manner, but you may be the only person in the thread that didn't read the unedited post.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

I dunno remember the last person who said this about SOE? That famous thread on the SWG forums about that guy who has a friend whose uncle did a focus test for SOE or something and then listed what turned out to be the NGE lol.

I'm inclined to believe this, just the dumb move SOE would do.

God they're always so depressing to see, just a load of obese 40 year old geeks who have no social life and it's always in some horrible looking Vegas Hotel which is so cheap and tackey. There is like 100 people who turn up compared to the giant numbers of every other developer event because SOE have no fans left, only hardcore dedicated EQ fanbois, who for some reason failed to jump ship back in 2002. 

They wont even have new fans visiting for Planetside 2 cause that game sucks and no one likes it, the population is on constant decline because SOE released it too early like they always do. We keep telling them every beta that first impressions count the most, you'll never get those players back and it's always "releasing in 2 weeks" and a giant outrage on the beta forums.

While true, this has little to do with the actual game but more so with the United States.

You can go to any tech event, to Blizzcon, E3,  CES, to any event in the US and you will find obese people at abnormal proportions.

Don't blame a game for what is a nationwide problem in the US.

I know many Japanese EQ players and none of them are obese.

EQ players are in better shape than the average person in the US: http://www.livescience.com/2907-video-gamers-surprisingly-fit-older.html

This is a troll thread. The Console Takeover is the gaming version of The End is Nigh! It's been imminent for decades.

I can see this game coming out on both the PS4 and PC cocurrently, if that is even possible.  More people playing = more money right?

I would be shocked if it was released only on the PS4.

I actually hope you're correct.. or your friend rather. I for one am sick of spending the money on my PC to upgrade over and over again for games that still need to be continually patched due to the millions of system configurations they're working with. 

 

I'm getting older.. Spending money on my PC isn't cool anymore. Having a tricked out rig is getting as ridiculous to me as having a tricked out car. At this point, I would rather by a PS4 that I can use for 5-7 years. Do you know how much money I have spent on my pc in 5-7 years? I routinely buy a new card, 300-400 dollars every two years or so. 

 

I'm guess I'm saying that at this time, I would rather have a nice Cadillac cts then a Honda Civic in which I continuously sink money. If Sony did do this, it would be a step in a good direction for me at least.

You complain that PC are expensive but then you waste that amount of money on a graphics card every 2 years? That makes little to no sense. Most $200 graphics card last 3-4 years.

And consoles being cheaper is such a fallacy, a TV that actually has no input lag costs tons of money.

Anyway, good luck buying your PS4 which is nothing but an outdated higher clocked AMD bobcat core with facebook integration.

The console solution aims at the mean of performance, but trades off content and interface. The problem with a universal system is that you lose choice. I don't particularly like having to upgrade, but I Hate not being able to upgrade. Consoles are the communism of the gaming world.

theres been no details yet beyond past statements by SOE that all their future games would be multiplatform

 

what we do know

- DCUO had a simultaneous launch on both PC and console

- PS2, a game that uses the same game engine as EQ3, has only launched on the PC

Sounds like a good way to blow your own foot off. Go ahead, push your core audience into the arms of another deverloper/game.

I'm wiling to believe it, because I know how stupid SOE can be.

People are missing the point, it is where the money is -consoles. Look at which games always sell the most - console. Makes sense to me.

To me, it doesn't make sense at all, but I guess SOE is prone to not making sense every now and then.

If they were going console with a brand new MMO franchise, it actually would make sense. But to go console-first with the sequel of a game that made a lot of people buy PCs, was one of the beacons of online PC gaming and therefore is a huge legacy among PC gamers... That's like making a conscious effort to get rid of your existing fanbase.

It would not be like Dust 514. It would be way worse.

Wow... such anger within you... Did a ps3 harm you in some way in the past? lol - Or you're just one of those "PC" folks that is hardcore and hates consoles...

 

A $200 card doesn't last 4 years and you're argument is striaght up dumb.  Part of the reason I complain that PC's are too expensive is directly related to buying a new card every two years. Most people on this site more then likely buy a card every year or two for sure. I'm not sure how you're stretching your $200 cards to last 4 years, but whatever. 

 

So bascially I'm calling extreme bullshit on your statement that buying a card every two years is excessive.  Might one ask how often you upgrade? Please tell me how much you would spend on your magic PC in a 7 year period? What are you rocking currently?

I'll step up to this. Consoles are fine but they are a common denominator tool versus PCs that are usually pushing the boundaries. Were it that consoles took over, I would have missed many games that consoles of the time either could not run, or would have been so restricted in either storage or interface that they would have been shit.

Consoles being forced on the PC world would be great for designers, but the games that could not be created due to universal hardware restrictions would be legion.
