It doesn't have to be that way. It could be like Chronicles of Riddick for example. It's not pc fanboys' fault that some developers think it's cool **** up pc ports.

QFT!

It will end up being a crap game like 99% of all console games are anyway so I could care less.

I don't think they think its "cool" rather they don't want to put the extra effort and cost to improve the PC version when they know the sales of said version will pale in comparison to the console versions.

I mean its sad when an uberly hyped PC game sells worse then most games on a console with a far smaller user base.

The main reason for going console is, thats where they can maximize the profit, they don't have to put resources in the PC development. It is for the profit..and who can blame them...

But dam lucas ...

Just for FYI, this game sold great without the PC market.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed sold 5.7 million units

Jeez, they sold it on every single possible platform except the PC:

Quote:
LucasArts's Star Wars: The Force Unleashed sold 5.7 units worldwide across all platforms since releasing in September, making it the fastest-selling Star Wars game in history.

Several versions of the title were shipped, with LucasArts developing editions for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; Krome Studios for PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, and Wii; n-Space for DS; and Universomo for iPod Touch, iPhone, N-Gage, and other mobiles.

They'll have to fix the lightsabers first so they don't simply bounce off of things.
