Update on the Ps4 version??

Postby Bagdad » Sat Aug 29, 2015 3:03 pm

Long time ago (couple of alphas), you guys talked about bringing PA to console.

Since then, radio silence...

With a game close to release, can you give an update on the status of the console version?

Release date for example... 8)

"Introversion has enlisted the help of John Cook at Bad Management LLP to secure a retail partner and publisher for a console version of the game at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco in March."

I personally don't think PA would work great on a console. I encourage them to try in the distant future, but It would take a lot of work on the controls for the same reason you don't really see many RTS games on consoles. Mouse and keyboard simply works a lot better then a controller on this kind of game.

Well I'm pretty sure they can make it work.

More and more "PC only " game are coming to console. Just look at the Tropico serie. It works really well without a keyboard and mouse.

Also, they announced games like City Skylines, Train simulator and others for Xbox one.

If they can do it, I don't know why PA could not do it. I mean, it's menus and a cursor, it's pretty easy to map on a controller...

RTS are not popular on consoles because of competitive multiplayer. You can't be has fast with a controller than with a mouse.
