I wonder if telltale will make a version for dsi ware. Do you agree that telltale should make a dsiware version?

  • It seems like a bad idea for now. With its specific limitations and special 3d engine the DS would probably be the hardest platform to port to. I'm not convinced it would be a profitable move for them, especially since they would be in much more direct competition with Layton.

  • Except they hardly put anything even as big as Layton on the thing. With the exception of stuff like Mario vs. DK and Mighty Flip Agents, it's been getting pretty scant App support. Most of the releases hardly compare to the Indie games on other Digital DL platforms.

    I have DSi, myself. But am a bit fustrated that I really don't have much worthwhile stuff to spend any DSi Ware points on. So I've held back my purchases, on it, for a while now.

  • I'd love to see any of TTG games on the DS. It's one of my favourite consoles. Maybe one day it'll happen...

  • DS or DSi, no. 3DS, maybe. It's got a better res and a much better graphics chip which is important for busy interface games like this one.

    Of course, that system is quite a ways from being released...

    It would be nice if they did make a "pocket size" game, though. Perhaps something original, like this game was.

    Well it will be coming to the iPhone/iPod Touch. So there's one 'pocket size' version.

    Yeah, there's actually some pretty good puzzle games on there but they have some of the dumbest names.
    I'm mostly waiting for BlazBlue's DS port to be released on the DSi Ware.

    What was so graphical heavy about PA? And they said the latest would be Mar 2011 for the 3DS' release.

  • DS = Kids Console (couple of good games but most oriented at children)

    PA = Adults Game

    Wouldn't work.

    That's a generalization. I have a DS. I can't see anything about PA breaking Nintendo's rules.

  • @MusicallyInspired said: That's a generalization. I have a DS. I can't see anything about PA breaking Nintendo's rules.



    It's not about rules. It's about target audience. The DS audience aren't gonna like this game. Layton fans aren't gonna like this game. It's for fans of psychological thrillers. And there's more of those gamers on PC than on DS.

    There's also a HUGE amount of piracy on the DS to consider. Significantly more than any other console.

  • I don't think the piracy consideration affects DSiWare. Maybe the carts, but I don't think the DSiWare content has been affected. But even then, the hardware adoption rate of the DS is so high that piracy hasn't hurt that platform as much as certain others. (like PSP)

    But then again, I have yet to see a single DSiWare title that is as mature as this game.
