xbox2 version
« on: April 10, 2005, 03:39:51 pm »
hello, I am new to the forums, but after I found out about Spore, I had to find a community that discussed it, so here I am. Anyways I have been finding out everything that I possibly can about this game. It's one of those games where you have been dreaming of it since the day you played frogger(errrr...maybe not). Anyways I had been trying to figure out if it had a console version since I first heard of it. Since my computer isn't worth more than a bag of toenail clippings, it obviously wouldn't be able to run Spore. So I was very happy at hearing it was coming to the next Xbox. But I am also a little worried. First of all after listening to one of the Podcasts, I heard they aren't too keen on making the Xbox 2 version, which may mean one of two things:
1. It won't come out
2. it will be a severely different or dumbed down version of it's PC self
Both of which concern me, seeing as I am on a tight budget, I can't afford any good PC, and I want the console version to be just as good(exact same if possible) as the PC version. It would be quite easy to figure controls out,and if not they could probably come out with a mouse/keyboard controller for the Xbox 2. As well as having an optional hard drive, I heard there was also going to be a version of the Xbox which would be dedicated to running PC games and would also have a hd
well that about ends my rant thanks for listening :P

well, I wouldent worry about the PC vs Console versions just yet. For one, we dont even know what the min specs for the PC version will be, and second, we dont know about the Xbox2 at all as of yet.

Realy, I think that the specs will become known at E3 (hopefully) and we will know FAR more info then we know at this present time.
We create reality, reality does not create us. Thus is the question, if we stop beleving in reality, then what are our limitations on pursuing our dreams?

If they come out with an Xbox 2 version it won't be a dumbed down version. From what I know it is basically just the PC version made to work on the Xbox 2 with a few differences here and there. Of course, things may change between now and then, but it won't be in Maxis's best interest to release two versions of the same game, one good and another dumbed down. After all, this is their game and it has Will Wright's name on it. Also keep in mind that converting a game from the PC to the Xbox is actually a fairly simple process (more or less). The big issue is that you have to make sure that you initially design the interface to work on a console, fully optimize your textures, and keep the memory requirements reasonable.

Also keep in mind that the Xbox 2 hardware will be faster and more powerful than the most powerful gaming PCs on the market today, so Spore on the Xbox 2 should be a good game and run smoothly. However, in order to make the two games "different" somehow I'm sure EA is going to have to do something to make the two games unique ... so that you buy both of them of course!

And possibly as some sort of card game. Now that's cross-platform!
