XCOM launch date and PS3 version confirmed

Forums - Gaming Discussion - XCOM launch date and PS3 version confirmed

I'm not going to say I'm excited about it going multiplatform because this was the main 360 (console) exclusive that I was looking forward to....Oh well, just gives me time to hype up The Witcher 2 (considering my computer is craptastic).

I personally would rather have Metro 2033 go multiplat, but this is cool too.


I think it was because the devs had limited resource to do a ps3 version or something but hey atleast the next metro is confirmed for ps3 aswell.

It was? Where have I been?



Never played the original(s?), so I'm definitely a blank slate when it comes to the series. Looks like it will be good from what I can tell.

Wow.

Have they said anything about it being in 3D yet on the PS3? I'm interested to know if they're going to take that step. :P

I was really hoping this bastardization was cancelled or something

Time for hype

I just saw the trailer and Nothing really impresses me about it, probably because its just another fps!

Looks interesting, a lot of people seem to be mad over the FPS change.

There area already tons of fps out there. It seems like they are just leeching on the XCOM name with... just another FPS.


Yeah, there are a ton of FPSes out there and, yeah, we really don't need another one. But I'll still take an interesting sci-fi/fantasy FPS like XCOM or BioShock over another Call of Duty military clone any day.

I really wish this didn't have the XCOM name attached so I wouldn't have to boycott it on principal...

I would never boycott a good game, both the franchise and the developer have great pedigree and while I agree that the game is moving from its root, I don't have any reason to despise it base on just that. That being said, what I've seen hasn't been that impressive.


Unlike the ink monsters from earlier trailers I actually like the geometry morphing guys style. Other than that it's just another fps with bioshock like asthetic which quite frankly I don't feel that great a need to play. So add in the fact that it shits on the XCOM brand just like enforcer did and I have to buycot it to send a message that we don't want clasic fanchises revived as FPS's with nothing to do with the originals, this game should have been an original ip

Check out my hype threads: Cyberpunk, and The Witcher 3!

Generic FPS looking games that ruin classics... Hurt my feelings.

Xcom is one of the best games ever. Seriously. It's the perfect strategy game. Turning it into a generic FPS is a kick to the nuts of everyone who ever played the original.
