I know this is a somewhat tricky issue but this will be an open letter to telltale from me. I own an xbox 360, and wanted to have my say on franchises I love and put a lot of time and money into via merchandising, such as JP and the Walking Dead. I apologise if this has been done before but I wanted to put my views forward and have them heard at least.
First off, I got nothing against PS3 or PC owners. Gamers are gamers, and I dont like the idea of non first party exclusives as I think it's deliberately designed to exclude people. I dont think any REAL gamer would wish games withheld from fellow gamers who happen to have different consoles.
I also have put what I would honestly say more love into JP and Walking Dead than many others . I am sure others in this forum feel the same since we all care enough to sign up and talk about it.I saw JP in awe as a child, brought all the action figures, including a big playset of the compound, books, mags, cards, you name it. Walking Dead, I have been a fan of the comics since it started, long before it was a popular tv show. I have every single trade and have my eyes on the action figures coming out.
So I feel that as someone who has love for both franchises, its a bit unfair I might miss out because I dont own a PS3 and because my technical knowhow on PCs is limited and my PC is not a games PC.
I genuinely would love both the walking dead and JP games but I fear because of back to the future, I will not be seeing either any time soon.
I understand there were some problems with Microsoft, from what I hear, with previous telltale games...and I know Microsoft can be greedy little SOBs. But thats no reason to punish potentially millions of customers who own their platform such as myself who certainly dont agree with many buisness practicies and moves they make. That hurts the products potential audience and the fanbase more than Microsoft.
I just want to know...a straight awnser if possible. Is there any hope of either game coming to xbox 360? If not, fine, I just want to at least not be strung along and told ''we are listening to fans who want it'' but without any real reply. I just want some honesty. If its not coming at all, I would rather know. Maybe there are factors that stop total honesty or discussions, but I would at least, if possible, like to know if there is ANY hope at all of seeing these games or if I should just give up following them and getting excited now.
I hope we can have a decent discussion on this full of maturity, honesty and most of all, fellow fans and gamers making good discussion and debate.
cheers, and hopefully this forum will be worth sticking around :)
