Thats gonna be pretty super expensive.. X3 is alot like Elite actually. You should look into it. Very awesome game. You can trade, build space stations, fly around with cargo ships in tow, do missions, heaps of stuff. One of the best space game series around. Heres some clips..








The graphics are stunning and you do need a pretty beefy setup to play it. But like I said if you enjoy Elite, this is like the updated version of it. Theres also alot of cool mods out for it like a babylon5 mod.

i'll translate, well just remove the first sentence .. as i have no fucking idea .. lol

I would put serious money on the % of pcs used for game to be a small % of the pcs with windows on in the world.

also Windows 7 will be the last pay to own OS from M$ they are moving to free OS with pay for cloud apps next. there cloud office is really good, i use it all the time

Ofoucrse the gaming amount of pcs would be smaller. But when you have MMOs with people playing on them between 5-13mill, that cant be a small amount. Plus the sims titles sell billions.

The game started on PC with the Xbox as a 2nd platform. Now its scrapped from the PC altogether. I can understand the backlash. I would feel the same way if the game was Half-Life 3 or something.

Still the PR cover up for the decision is terrible. If its not going to the PC cause of a budget, marketing, or exclusivity buyouts than say so. Don't tell me its because the best way to play the game is on the couch in front of a huge TV. I own a 32" so by PR spin I wont get the full experience either. Next they'll be saying the Elite doesn't come with a HDMI cable anymore for costumer flexibility

Box of tissue. Good, I've ran out. Get the spatula too, to pry open these two stuck together pages of Final Fantasy 13 images.

Dont mock a system for not getting a game if you'd cry if a game you were looking forward to was suddenly taken away from your system of choice.

Well i've seen a lot of retarded things in my day but dang, that excuse is beyond poor.

and people that come into this thread just to poke fun or laugh at it are pure morons, I bet they're the same people paying for useless dlc on xbox live to make the market as retarded as it is today.

don't come into threads just to troll, especially in this case when doing so only proves how plain stupid you are, don't get why you'd want to flaunt it.

don't need imba cards for mmos tho.. well warcraft .. as most others bomb hard .. warcraft is a law on its own .. lol

but thats why all i'm saying is that MS prob couldn't give a crap if gamers stopped buying windows .. as the % would not be that big a deal to them. sadly one thing that MS have never really given to hoots about is PC gamers

Remedy is taking so damn long with this game that they were probably told by Microsoft to focus on the X360 only, so the damn game could finally...maybe..get frikin' released! I still feel there will be a PC version of this game, unless it sucks hardcore and bombs.

I doubt they finished it. The game has gone through way too many changes, not just in graphics. Its like they didnt really know what they were after. Started off as an adventure style game then went and turned into a silent hill style game. Their ideas were all over the place.
