Console Version Still Coming, Will be "Different"

Console Version Still Coming, Will be "Different" - MMORPG.com

APB Lead Designer EJ Moreland spoke about the infrequently discussed console version of Realtime Worlds' upcoming cops-n-robbers MMO All Points Bulletin in a recent interview with the folks at Develop.

In the interview, EJ noted that the console version of APB would be different and not a straight PC-to-console port as those sorts of games don't tend to "work as well as it did on the original platform." The choice to make the console version of APB a more "console centric" version as opposed to simply doing a port job means that a console version of APB may still be a ways out, as the team has not even begun production on the console version yet.

EJ does reassure us that the game will not be "radically different" though, so those of you who are looking forward to playing APB on consoles, don't fret, the game will still be about "content creation, online celebrity, and deep match-making", it'll just a bit more console friendly!

You can read part one of the full interview over at Develop right now for additional information.
