Default SW-The Force Unleashed:System requirements to bring 360-PS3 version to PC too high

GDC 2008: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

The cool visual effects will be handled by the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game but The Force Unleashed will also be coming out for the Wii and we also got to see that version of the game on the big screen (the Wii version is being developed by Krome Studios. The title doesn't look half bad at all in terms of visuals and you still get to use Force powers to throw around the bad guys. Wii players will get a dual mode that will allow players to use their WiiMote as a simple light saber. This won't be a fencing simulation, according to LucasArts, so don't expect a terribly deep experience but it should be a lot of fun.

The Force Unleashed will also be coming out on the PS2, PSP and the DS, each with their own special content and features. We didn't see those versions at the GDC demo event but they will have things like historical missions for the PS2 port. LucasArts would not comment on any plans for online multiplayer for the main Xbox 360-PS3 versions. Alas, there won't be a PC version of the game; LucasArts stated that the system requirements to bring the Xbox 360-PS3 version to the PC platform would be too high (shades of Assassin's Creed which UbiSoft is actually releasing to stores).

I seriously doubt Force Unleashed is more resource hungry than Crysis =\

I think they are trying to avoid the whole Crysis Requirements, Remember top of the line systems are the minority. They would have to make the game playable on weaker systems, I think thats what it means when they said the requirements of the PS3/X360 version would be too high.

Atleast you aren't getting half ass port or a port of the PS2 version...

So basically they are too lazy to do a good port. Lucasarts can go jump in the lake.

They are full of crap. I think that most core2 machines with at least an 8600gt can hang with the ps3 and the 360.

Not worth the profit for releasing on PC.

I loved the original Star Wars. The new films, not so much, but the original three I love.

But god dammit, stop with the star wars games. Just ****ing stop. JUST FOR ONE GOD DAMN YEAR.

Yep... I'm sure they don't mean no PC can play it, what they mean is so few PCs could play it it's not worth the development cost.

Which is a shame.

Actually the graphics isn't what has impressed me most with Force Unleashed, its the animation, physics and destructible environment systems. But the graphics look good anyway for sure.
