Monkey Island on PS3?

posted by Marscaleb on - last edited - Viewed by 2.6K users

I for one would like to see this game on the PS3.
I would like it on the PS3 more than I would for the PC or Wii.

But I am just one voice. What about the others here?

  • Maybe the options should have just been:

    "I have a PS3 and I would buy it if it was released on the PSN."
    "I have a PS3 and I would not buy it if it was released on the PSN."
    "I do not have a PS3 so I don't care."
    "I do not have a PS3 but I'm one of those types of people who enjoy having something that other people don't; so I don't want it to come out on PS3."

    Seriously, why are people calling this guy a fanboy, he just wants to play the game...

    I think this, as well as the "Put off buying the game..." option are viable reasons to call him a PS3 fanboy. Personally I don't think there is anything wrong with being a fanboy. Unless you're a PS3 fanboy :p.

  • Is linux on PS3 powerful enough to play new games?

    I suppose, though you could just as easily read that as; "I wanna play it in HD and on my TV". Call me an optimist I guess :D

    Unfortunately no, while the PS3 is quite the beast, Sony limited Linux quite badly, in that they decided not to allow PS3 linux access to the graphics hardware. Meaning, anything that is 3D is pretty slow. Plus, PS3 linux is PPC rather than x86, so even if it had 3D capabilities, most commercial games wouldn't work.

    Haha I guess so. I guess I just don't understand those arguments because my new HD TV has a computer monitor input! :p

    Also, you can play in HD with the Xbox 360

    Well, yeah... why the heck should we feel entitled to poke fun at someone who shelled out an unearthly price to a company which has an history of raping his customers in any possible way??

    Baaad boys we are :D:p


    ... " They shouldn't going to take such an insolence sitting down! " :p

    @Uhyve said: Also, you can play in HD with the Xbox 360

    Which comes from another company with an history of raping his customers in any possible way, but at least comes with comparable performance at a much lower price...

    Nonetheless, to have to pay a subscription, in addition to game price, to play online seems simply foolish to me... It doesn't happen with Mario Kart Wii :p


    Yes, yes, I am a Wii fanboy... crucify me and gamble my rubber chicken with a pulley in the middle and my plethora of controllers at dice! :p:D

    Not ALL the games require paid subscription to play online, and the stupid Friend Code system Nintendo uses completly ruins any online experience. And you know Nintendo IS going to charge you for online play of future releases, they gonna have a red Wi-Fi symbol at the boxart.
    I used to be a Wii fanboy too, but that was BEFORE I played the Xbox first time. Have you ever tried playing ANYTHING but the Wii? I'm sure if you do you'll change your mind right away

  • Ooh, I see Holy Wars are still chic nowadays! :D :D

    Ok, let's go for it :)

    @thin029 said: Not ALL the games require paid subscription to play online,

    But, feel free to correct me, I understand it's very very common, rather the norm for AAA titles, isn't it?

    @thin029 said: and the stupid Friend Code system Nintendo uses completly ruins any online experience.

    Well, I really think Mario Kart Wii (taken as an example) have a really excellent online multiplayer, and you just need Friend Codes when you want to play with specific persons you know, you can play with random people in your region or worldwide without. And I don't mind exchanging friend codes anyway, while I understand this could be ameliorable.

    Oh. I didn't know this, and looked it up. I don't mind the additional content thing, but if the "additional services" includes the multiplayer play, it's of course equally as disgraceful, and I won't support that business model. I really do hope this doesn't became common on the Wii as it is on the Xbox. This would ruin the online experience to me.

    Of course, a few platforms in fact :)

    I play Xbox360 at friends' homes from time to time... It has its good points, of course, I really enjoyed meddling with Fables II for an evening, for example. Charming, absolutely. But I didn't feel the urge to go and buy one.

    It always feels "more of the same" to me, in some way. And I don't hang at all to play FPSs with a gamepad, being accostumed, and slightly addicted in fact :p, to play FPSs with keyboard and mouse on the PC in the Good Ol' Days of Quake 1/2/3, a gamepad feels slooooow and very cumbersome, not enjoyable at all, even after an evening of trying. I hold really high expectations for The Conduit on the Wii in that regards (is due 10 July here in Europe).

    On the contrary, I find the Wii really refreshening, I enjoy mine a lot :)


    Oh... and of course you fight like a cow. :p :D :D


    PS: This, as all the previous posts, is intended to be very light-earthed :) Pun intended, offence not.

    I am rubber you are glue!!
    Its ok, you can love your Wii, I'll keep loving my Xbox AND PS3 and leaving my Wii in its box. :D
