Never going to happen that way. How would they justify a second release on Xbox?

 

"Uh, we were rushed around Christmas by Lucas so, uh, all you hardcore loyal schmucks shell out another $50 and you can get the real game."

 

No way. Obsidian would go down if they admitted that. More plausible just to delay the pc version... but that's not really going to happen either.

Nah. The nice guys at LA already changed the release date from Feb. 2005 to Jan 2004 for various reasons (xmas sales, 2004 game awards etc.).

 

No need to change it more. Thanks to all the beta testers out there, I'll enjoy my game once it becomes available ;)

 

In the meantime, I'll just wait patiently and occupy myself by playing Pirates! a040.gif

IIRC, the talk was of a february release. Then a december release. Turned out that some versions of the game were to be released early (december) and the rest as originally expected in february. I could remember wrong though, I didn't really follow the project that much after it was renamed from Project Delaware to Kotor2:TSL ;)

Yeah, but... where did you get January??

 

(it says 2/05 on the site still, by the way..)

 

January ??? :huh:

 

Oops :">

 

Translate that to February when it's written on a friday afternoon and the drinks have started to arrive here at the office...

 

I meant February.

I am wondering if all the bad word of mouth crap about the X-Box version will harm the sales of the PC version. Hmmm... Well, I know I am not going to buy it unless I see tangible proof that KotOR 2 is getting proper tech support by Obsidian and Lucasarts.

And you believe everything you read on the Internet.

 

Sorry, I want tangible proof. I want to see actual downlaodable Patches. I want to see actual fixed X-Box discs shipped to those who bought the game (something Origin did with Ultima 9 way back when). I want proof. Just because a random person, regardless if they are affiliated with the company or not, makes a post in a forum does not make it true.

I've learn not to argue with you Hades, so I'm not going to start now. You can't convince someone who doesn't want to be convinced...

 

Let's just wait and see when the PC version comes out, shall we...

 

I can see what Hades is talking about. If you played LionHeart, they had bugs that went totally unsupported, with no intent/attempt to fix them.

:D

 

I guess I will take my faith and optimism somewhere else...

 

No but seriously, let's give Obsidian a chance. They might've have release the XBox version early, but that was Lucasarts call. Not Obsidian.

 

And about the bugs...that's is exactly why I don't own a console. If you buy a buggy PC game, chances are there will be a patch soon enough. You can't do that with a console.

I think it's a little late for the XBox version, but as much as I've looked forward to this game, I wouldn't be against a delayed PC release date if and only if they can deal with all the bugs and issues that have plagued the XBox version.

 

If nothing gets fixed (or bare minimum gets fixed, but game stoppers still exist), then I don't see any point in a delayed release.

Agreed to an extent.

 

Remember that it is imposible to fix all the bugs, specially since the PC plataform can vary in hardware. What works with a nVidia card, not always works with an ATI card. So yes, I hope they fix the bugs the plagued the XBox, but that doesn't mean that the game will not have bugs in some PC systems...
