Locked: Dev of Warhawk dropping SixaxiS...

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Dev of Warhawk dropping SixaxiS...

Hey, his post came right after mine without a quote so I had little else to go on lol.



Around the Network

Well, I saw Warhawk being controlled with the Sixaxis, and it always seemed to be delayed. It does not suprise me one bit that they would revert back to dual analog.



A thread about Warhawk dropping sixaxis control could have been a good thread if it wasn't made in such a trollish manner.


So could everyone who reads this post please disregard Starcraft Maniacs statements? He's getting his warning for them right now, so you don't even need to respond to them.


I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do. 

Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.

Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!

Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.

funny how the wii fanboy trolls never get a temp ban for their obvious trolling. The mods on here are such a joke.

To all the idiots wii fanboys iam in the beta and they sure as hell are not droping sixaxis, to many people love it. Warhawk supports both analog an sixaxis controls, it always has.

he's getting a warning, so shut up.

Just like many other fanboys on both sides do when they troll.

Maybe the reason Wii fanboys don't get temp banned as much is because they don't bitch about the moderators so much. So maybe you should just let it slide and stop thinking the whole world is against you. 

 



Help! I'm stuck in a forum signature!

Flashback:

-E3 2005: Sony shows their PS3 with 'banana controller' 

-Tokyo gameshow 2005: Nintendo unveils their controller for the (then called) Revolution. However, they don't say how it works.

-March 06 gameshow:

1) Nintendo shows the revolution to the press with NDA disclosure and show how the controller works (somekind of 3D controlls)...

2) Sony drops 'banana' control scheme (Cause of mass presure from the audience) they say (Essentialy... It was the Wiimote that made em do it)... 

-Pre E3: Sony shows their 'new' controller: The SixaxiS... With 2D motion mapping!(...) They say it will 'Revolutionize the industry' (Yeah right...)

-E3 2006:

1) Sony press conference: Devs show Warhawk... The 1st game to show of how the SixaxiS works and feels. (That demonstration sucked btw)(...) They say it makes the game feel more natural and enables you to fly around really intuitive... Blablabla more PR talk...

2) Nintendo blows the competition away with their 'more superior' 3D controller called Wiimote.

-Later on word came out that the Devs of Warhawk got a message from Sony a few weeks before E3 that they had a new controller (With 2D motion mapping)... And that they wanted Warhawk to be the First game to make use of it... And to show of to the audience at E3 that they already had games for it and were experimenting with it for the last couple of years (Which essentialy was a lie... Cause they just got scared about Nintendo's new controller and wanted to react on it... Which is why they could only implement 2D and got back to the Dual-shock design... A.K.A: Too little time to make a good redesign of the controller)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

June 25th: I wake up and see the new issue of the 'Power Unlimited' on my doorstep (U should know... I live in Holland... Where Power Unlimited is the biggest gamesmagazine)

I look through the issue... And see Warhawk preview! (Interesting...) And i begin to read it... (...)It says: The played it a few months ago... And a few weeks ago(...)When they played it a few months ago it had SixaxiS controlls... But they sucked! Hard!...(...)A few weeks ago they were invited to play it again... And the only option was to controll it with dual analog sticks... Which played far better they said...  Devs of Warhawk DROPPED the SixaxiS controlls implemented by Sony a few weeks before E3 2006 to try and counter Nintendo's Wiimote! And warhawk dropped the controllscheme!!!!

*Power Unlimited is by no means involved in this post, nor are their superiors. They have roots in the industry and don't make bold claims. They hold emselves to NDA disclosures and get their information from press trips organized by developers or multimedia companies. 

 

Edit: This better?! Fanboyish stuff removed!


ROTFLMFAO!!!!! VGC forums haaaa!!!! Just Priceless!! *Picks self of floor, shakes head and just walks off*

Lol, people complain how the mods dont do there job while someone did give him a warning and that no one reported it. Atleast not that I know of. Obviously some people do use the report feature otherwise I wouldnt have found this post.

lol, interesting thread.

Maybe the people who wrote that stuff in the magazine have no idea what they were doing or were going off somebody else who had no idea. What could have confused them is that there is a section for foot, vehicle, motion, and warhawk controls. The motion controls menu is seperate from the warhawk controls menu and to enable motion controls, you have to open up the motion control menu and enable it.

 

*edit* or maybe that was too easy for me because I explore the menus and such first? Or maybe it's because it's similar to Battlefield 2 with a section for each type of control scheme and I play BF2 a lot.
