Question Will UC make it onto the PC?

It might clash a bit with Unreal 2, but if launched at the right time, UC would make a nice stopgap between Unreal 2 and Unreal Warfare.

Whatcha think?

Sorry Zaccix, it ain't gonna happen

Microsoft and Digital Extemes already signed an exclusivity contract for UC on the X-Box. And I highly doubt Microsoft will let DE out of said contract. Besides, even if the exclusivity contract with MS expires in, oh... let's say 2 years. By then Unreal Warfare should either be already out, or on the verge of release, making the PC release of UC somewhat pointless.

I guess DE/Epic/Infogrames signed a contract with Microsoft that says that UC will be exclusive on Xbox for at least 1/2 year after release.

But once they've sold enough Xboxes and enough copies of UC for Xbox it will be ported to PC, I'm sure. Technically the Xbox virtually is a PC, so the work for DE to port it to PC will be minimal.

I wonder if Legend and Epic might think that it steps all over their releases? Having said that... I sure hope so... I'll buy 'em all!

...and this is why I don't think it'll be out for PC. MS don't want to send out the signal, that u can just wait 6-12 months and u'll be able to get the games on pc. A killer game lives for longer than a year (e.g. UT) and many would be happy to wait and save the expense of buying the xbox. I know I would.

but many of its features are designed with console gaming in mind. Unreal 2 should be good enough if its done right.

There's really nothing keeping DE from "repackaging" and adding a few levels or something and releasing it for the PC. I think that Microsoft just wants to have a window of exclusivity, not prevent DE from making a fair profit by releasing it on other platforms (escpecially non-console platforms)

I believe that if anything, Epic won't want to oversaturate it's market.. especially since UW would follow it.

erm, Emulators!!!, and don't give me that 'but the PC couldn't handle it' argument, 'cos it will eventually be able to, unless the X-box is less advanced, which I don't know, 'cos I don't care about computer technology specifics...
So it will be out for the PC, eventually, however legally... probably...

I think they´ll have to port it over to the PC, sooner or later.. they´ll be losing a large fanbase if they dont.. and i doubt everybody will buy an Xbox too.

later,

regarding emulators

It probably wouldn't be that hard for a PC to emulate itself. Well, thats basically what it would be doing.

PC's out now can handle any game biult for the X-Box.

The X-Box is about 733Mhz processor (i think) and an enhanced GF3 made especally for it.

PC's can handle it, but how many people do you really think have the PC to run these games? You need a GeForce 3 and a DvD drive or you cant even consider yourself for even being able to play a Xbox game on your PC.

And you were right about the system specs for the Xbox. The GeForce 3 on the Xbox is a bit more powerful then the current GF3's on the PC right now though.

average system specs are
P3 800 / athlon 800
at least 128 mb ram
dvd drive
GeForce 2

that spec i would say by my guess is about average. It's not far off the x-box specs, except the graphics, so i'd say most people do have a system comparable to the x-box
