  S.T.A.L.K.E.R. coming to consoles??? - Official News

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. crew GSC Game World, traditionally a PC-focused studio, is casting a serious eye over console development...

"PC game development is very traditional for ex-USSR and over 90 percent of gamers here play on PCs. However, we are pretty aware of the tendencies in the markets internationally and have been considering console development for a while", GSC project manager Anton Bolshakov revealed in an interview we'll be publishing shortly.

Considering the success the developer's experienced with S.T.A.L.K.E.R., it's a safe bet this is the franchise it'd bring to console if it pursued console development in earnest, although the studio's also known for its strategy games such as Cossacks.

However, while GSC says console development has been under consideration for some time, Bolshakov told us there are "no announcements yet". So for now it's a case of watch this space...

Fps's on consoles don't seem to handle well, but it'll be interesting to see how this goes

Sure, it's a simple, dumbed down FPS-coincidentally-called-an-RPG-too.

Consoles might not be able to handle it, but the casual gamer would snap it up.

The system stats will have to be tuned down a lot. Consoles probably will not be able to run it on PC specs. Plus, aiming is much harder. Still, there will probably be less bugs.

ehh i hope u wanted to say that the game (i mean s.t.a.l.k.e.r.) can be graphicaly over-tuned cuz for example PS3`s "next"-gen" games r curently using about 30percent
of the consoles main hardware power and most of them r looking the same or even bethet then s.t.a.l.k.e.r. Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

Arg no, whenever devs start developing gamed for consols/pc, the game goes to shi t cause the consoles are hard to design for, and this holds them back, so the pc version is held back too.

I really don't see what the big hype is with consoles. I've personally never liked them, particularly when it comes to FPSs. I've always hated the controls (They just seem unresponsive, and it's a pain in the **** to get precision aiming). I'm a mouse and keyboard guy.
True, with consoles you know what your limits are, compared to PCs where no two are the same. But that also limits the creativity, customization, and open-endedness (Not a real word, but whatever) because your limited to what the system can/can't do and how much space (The CD/DVD/Blu-Ray, etc) you have to put your game in. Oh well, my two cents.

Better than on a good PC? I doubt it. Take your colossally-overpriced monster away from the Zone, fanboy.

all i have to say to this is "oblivion" developing it for both console and pc basically meant dumming it down for console. it took a year for modders to get it to where i consider it a really good game. i just hope they have to seperate development teams, serious programmers and artists on the pc version and they can put the 12 year olds with crayons developing the console version.

PS the graphics are about as good as they are going to get on the Playstation 3. even if its only using 30 percent of its processing power its severely limited by its memory (only 256) which means a lot more loading or smaller textures.

This is a PC game. Always has been, always will be, in my opinion. If you even look at some of the original promotional videos on youtube, and i quote:
"STALKER is going to be a real reward for the hardcore PC gamer. The type of people that spend all their time upgrading their systems with new graphics cards, new hard drives and stuff are really going to feel rewarded".

In my opinion, this game is going to be absolutely ruined if you put it onto any console, you will lose all that makes it good.
