Activision has really been turning some heads in the gaming world as of late. The company has really been making moves to expand franchises past their exclusive systems, such as allowing Guitar Hero
to move to the Wii. Though it may not win over the hearts of some console makers, it sure has been a great move for gamers - and now a new title has been added
to the list.
PC gamers have been looking forward to Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
for quite some time, and with good reason. The footage released as teasers for the game looks absolutely brilliant, with some beautiful graphics. Of course, the title has been one of those things PC gamers have been loving to lord over console owners - until now.
It appears that Activision wants to expand the franchise for those who don't own a top-end PC, so there will be a port for both the XBox 360 and the PS3 released at the same time as the PC. Of course, the PC will likely provide the best
ET:QW experience...but Gears of War
(among other titles) has truly illustrated how good the 360 can be, so I doubt anyone will be suffering.
The ports will each be managed by a different developer, which raises a lot of questions while at the same time providing some relief. First, it's clear that no one title will be a total "port," where it would likely suffer optimisation issues. But will they be the same game? Or compatible for multiplayer? Will the 360 and PC versions fit into the new XBox Live ideal? Only time will tell...
