Why play it on a potato if you already have it on PC?

If you really want to play a good FPS on a potato though, I hear Insurgency might be ported to PS4.

As fan as it would be it is simply impossible.Firstly it has too many controlls.Almost the entirety of the key board is used, so porting the controlls to the ps4 controller which doesnt have half the bottons of the keyboard is something that could not be done with out having to implement the use of double tapping bottons ,holding down bottons using botton combos etc.That would make the use of the controlls during the heat of battle very uncomfortable.Also in a game where accurasy is key having aim assist would be like giving aimbot and not giving aim assist would let everything be decided by luck ,so it would be a catch 22 situation.Mainly due to these two reasons i think consoles sadly will never get to feature any of tripwires games (as killing floor is also a game that features a realistic accurasy system).

A tatical game that involves people to actualy think before they do something ?
When did the age* of console playes sky rocket ?
You can't play a game of COD, or BF without some kid blowing up all the equipment because they too stupid to use it.
Now if it is put on the console, they better as hell not have a windows live like bull ♥♥♥♥. Children should stay on the console.

RO2 (I dont have RS) feels original, the multiplayer is fun and well done. The game mechanics is great, all that. The combat actually makes you think, and it plays tactical. This is the best WWII game I've played. And I'm just hoping for a good tactical shooter to come up on the console. The combats different, bolt action rifles, just a few submachineguns. I generally have more fun with shooters on the console than on the keyboard. Same with most people out there. I just miss this type of shooter gameplay that used to be on the console (COD 2, 3, 4 sort of grasped it).

"We're releasing on PC as well as console" and "We're trying to appeal to a broader audience" are two statements that, in all of my time playing PC games (12-15 years), has almost always resulted in the willy-nilly stripping of enjoyable features to make the gap between the two platforms narrower (to the detriment of the PC gamer) and/or the complete downfall of a PC game/series because of said ambitions.

A game like Skyrim (though successful money-wise) would've been a much better game if it were only a PC release, because they had to constantly be mindful of console constraints during development. Others like Star Wars Galaxies might still exist if the developers didn't put blinders on and vigorously pursue the "broader audience" until everyone left and the game died.

Quite a few other games are currently experiencing similar problems on account of touchscreens, where rather than asking "How can we make this a great game for the PC?" they end up asking "How can we make this a PC game that can work on the other platform?" Take Rome 2 and it's awful UI for example, which (while not entirely obvious at release) was undoubtedly influenced by their later desire to make the game work on touchscreens.

I could say the same thing but backwards, If console games where only on consoles then they would be better. Skyrim would be a better game if it where only on console. There are PC gamers, and Console gamers. I do both. As the company grows and the games get more popular its not such a bad idea to make it work on multiple platforms. And thats not the reason Rome 2 why is bad.

From a technical standpoint its actually impossible.

The PS4 and Xbox 1 have a problem. They have a crappy 8 core 1.8GHz CPU. You find that CPU in notebooks.
This game is single threaded. Meaning it doesn't use the other cores.

Yeah, the game would have to go through a hell of a lot of optimising before it could be console ready. For an "Indie" game (I guess that is what it'd be filed as?) it would also eat HDD space like crazy.

Also I do fanboy out a bit with Tripwire's shooting mechanics. They have got damn good at translating that to a mouse and shifting that to a pad would most likely deplete that.

I'm not sure I buy Skyrim being any better if it were console only. Perhaps it would play better on console because that was the focus, but the actual game would probably be the same quality or worse off because they'd go full console button-masher with the combat, among other things. As for Rome 2, I didn't say it was THE problem. It's one of the problems, and that's definitely why the UI is the way it is.

If you like PC and console games that's great, but stop trying to convince good PC developers to consolize their games into mediocrity in order to "appeal to a broader audience" like I was saying. There are already enough problems plaguing PC games as it is, like bait-n-wait early accesses and games parsed out for shameless DLC whoring.

I am not against it... I wouldnt play it personaly because i have it on pc. Plus its a shooter, so keyboard and mouse will always dominate a controller. I also like playing the same server all the time becasue you get to recognize and know other regulars.

I am not sure how much money that would cost them to port it over, so im not sure how much of a good business idea it would be. Speaking as of today, it doesnt have the best graphics and most console players would probably say good graphics is a priority over game play. So there is that also.

That's what console players were saying when they still believed PS4 and XBOX One will be capable of 1080p and 60 fps... then hardware data was known (GPU comparable to mid-range graphic cards, and processor's speed at 1.6 and 1.75), and after that, the case with Watch_Dogs (no full hd, fps locked to 30 fps)... and now, when console players know that "next gen" consoles are already obsolete compared to a 2-3 year old mid-range PC, thet say that graphics doesn't matter, and that everything is in the gameplay. xD

I played FFXI on console for the record. You guys need to understand 2 things:

1. consoles support the mouse and keyboard
2. 1 button can lead to many other options

But if you are going to play with mouse and key board you might as well play on pc.The main reason to play on a console is that you have the joystick that is small and portable and you can play from your couch at your leasure.If you use a mouse and keyboard you instantly have to play from a desc of somekind so playing on the console loses its main advantage.Also while 1 button can lead to many options at the heat of battle it wont be a fast enough method to quickly access the controlls.
