For those who don’t know, the new LucasArts game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed will be released on every platform except PC. As a hardcore PC gamer, this really burns me. As a 20 year customer of LucasArts products, this is a betrayal. The producer in charge of the xbox360 and ps3 versions of the game, Cameron Suey said in a May 12th Interview with videogamer.com reporter Wesley Yin-Poole that “…someone with a low-end PC would have a watered down experience, they would have to turn all the settings down and it wouldn’t be the same game.” A watered down experience?
According to this July 16th article, SW:TFU is coming to the iphone. Wouldn’t be the same game you say? In fact, the game is going to be released on Xbox360, PS3, PS2, Wii, PSP, DS, and now the iphone.
Cameron, when you talk about the PC, please be honest with the people who have paid salaries at LucasArts for 20 years. LucasArts wouldn’t exist without the PC platform. I think LucasArts owes their PC platform customers a debt. You can easily repay it by investing in full development of The Force Unleashed on PC.
