Now, I have been away from PS Forums for awhile, so this may have been discussed, and it is just something I was thinking about. So plz be mature and no flames. A difference of opinion i can handle, but i know that some people can go off there rocker on things like this.
Anyway, in the FAQ it says that PS is not planing on coming out to any other platform then the PC. However I was thinking today while I was playing MechAssult on my xbox, that if PS is a online game only, and it requires a fee to play, then why couldnt it someday come out on xbox live? Its no different then the computer. You cannot play the game offline, so you get on the internet and play. Could they not do the same thing with xbox live? I mean seriously, what is the difference of xbox live, and playing your favorite FPS on the computer? Now granted they would have to boost the xbox's performance to handle PS, but couldnt it be possible? Why not even make Everquest for xbox? Or any other game for that matter. And for payment, you could just add it to you xbox live bill. Now, if you can grasp that concept, I had another idea. If xbox's are playing the same online games as the computers, then could we not someday see a merge of platforms. Me playing PS on my computer aginst people, some of who would just be using there xbox?

I dont see any reason as to why that would not work? I am not suggesting that they do this, or making any claims, its just something that poped into my head today, and I thought i would sare it with everyone.

Thanks and Laterz


Drum roll please as SJ explains

Here are a few random, and UNOFFICIAL, thoughts about PlanetSide on a console:
a) Cool. If it can be done well, then I'd be open to doing it. I'd love to be the biggest, baddest FPS on a console, in addition to the PC.

b) Since we're a Sony company, we'd probably look into the PS2 first. Heck...probably has nothing to do with it...for sure we'd do that. Can we make a port on the Xbox? Probably. I'd have to talk to folks about it. And I'm personally open to the idea.

c) If Tribes 2 can get onto the PS2, then there's probably a way to get PS onto a console also. It'd be about as hard as a port could possibly be...but it should be possible.

d) If we did a console version of PS, it would almost certainly (approx 99.999% sure) that it would be a completely seperate product, with different servers and different customers. It would also probably be highly customized to work well with console hardware and gamers (who have very different expectations than PC gamers).

So...all-in-all...I'd be happy to explore doing a console PlanetSide experience for SOE. But I know how much work it would be, so I'd be going in with eyes wide open.

Make sense?

Oh...and by the way...there are still no plans to port PlanetSide to a console. Not yet anyway.

I'm no fanboy, but the PS2 would suck ass on a game like this. It's an old outdated system, with shoddy graphics. The XBOX could pull it off, but only on a muck smaller scale like 1/5 or so.

I will have to disagree with that comment! Xbox is no better than Playstation, or vice versa! They are about equal in graphics....not sure how long it takes to load a game up on Xbox, but the only downfall I noticed on Playstation is loading time is a bit sluggish!

Actually the Xbox is the most powerfull console (from a hardware standpoint). This means that it would be better at handling a game such as Planetside.

Of course the controls would suck, I hate using gamepads for fps, mice/keyboards are just so much better.

Why cant those annoying consoles just go away so that I can play all the games on PC...I really hate waiting for good games, and I know some of them such as Metroid Prime will probably never be ported...*sigh*...more things to spend money on.

I'm sure if they ever did, it would be on the PS3.

LOL, You have no idea what you're talking about. The XBOX is suprior to the PS2 (I asume that by Playstation you mean PS2 and not the org. Playstation ).
And you can't compare consoles by loading time. Even if it's the same game on both consoles, things would most likely be "bigger and better" on the Xbox, so there would be more to load.
And I really can't see how you could think otherwise, I mean, isn't there something like a year between the two consoles?

Well, it's MY opinion and I can say whatever in the hell I want to...right? It really doesn't matter which system you purchase, their outdated as soon as you buy them. I learned that long ago, stick to pc's, at least you can upgrade as needed!!

You can say whatever you want but you're completely wrong. You should probably read some specs of the consoles before you post something that retarded. Not to sound cruel or anything but you are very misinformed if you think the PS2 is anything like the xbox.
