Yea exactly, in the discussion thread he mentions planing a visit to a company in the same building as gearbox and snoop around a bit. In other words this is one more source confirming what the Kotaku sources say.

Looks like you agree with me Those are all like 10 years ago, and what do they have to do with what I said? Obviously dates are always just wishful thinking, and I don't think we can assume anything.

I honestly believe that the April 1 date is irrelevant to estimates of what state the game is in now. We don't know staffing, and we don't know progress. Even the game maker can't just throw up an arbitrary date a year ahead and justify it. I stand behind that - It's just how it is in the industry - the dates are typically just wishful thinking.

Now... looking at the information we have... I still think we're just waiting for the port to XBox - the game is done.

Kotaku is taken seriously because they have consistantly had a leg up on their stories.

Many other sites will likely jump on this as if they have another angle, and they are helping to uncover the details...
Truth is, it'll probably be the same Kotaku rumor regenerated all over the internet now.

Disgruntled employees sometimes start this crap up -
(like someone who was hoping Gearbox would pick DNF up, perhaps)

Let's hope somebody on the inside didn't just make some crap up to cause trouble.

Sure. A well-organized company only aiming at making $$$ (and succeeding at that) would have started with the console crap and then porting it to PC.

I've got a couple shooters that are true port-to-PC titles. I enjoy a few of them, but they are not traditional mouse-aim run and guns. They are titles developed for consoles and then made to work on PC.

Whatever you call that, it's not going to be what we get. It's a mouse aim & keyboard title that will work on XBox. But that's true about most FPS games - yes they dumb thewm down in the original design (and please lets not go there) , but they are, no doubt, PC designed titles.

I was thinking about an old game I have that's a port-to-PC. But come to think of it, I wonder if Mass Effect was created with PC as an afterthought

A lot of unreal engine based games are worked on simultaneously. Not ported. So 360 version will not be a port (or the PC version, however you look at it)

Didn't 3D Realms say once that they were testing to see if the encounters with enemies are possible with a 360 controller?

They'll probably balance it, but I hope it's mainly made for the PC. I'm tired of these badly done ports.

No, it was all the chewing gum that 3DR bought with the money they made from Duke 3D that kept the game in Development Hell.

But now they're all out of gum...

Ok, lame, I know

Re: Rumor: Gearbox Reviving Duke Nukem Forever
Well although I'm not 100% sure of the rumor, it would explain why all is silent. It could be part of the Gearbox contract, or it could be that they aren't 100% sure what's going to happen with 3rd party developers, I saw a video on IGN that showed the rumor as well, with this type of a rumor spreading this fast and that far, 3DRealms will have to come out and say something soon. So maybe in a month or so, we'll have information.

No, it will be the other way around.

I fully expect a simultaneous release of console and PC versions, but the game will be geared towards the largest platform, just like all other big name FPS games these days.

Dude just drop it. I'm sure Duke will be great on both platforms. Stop acting like everyone is out to oppress PC gamers. Last time I checked Borderlands was great on the PC to most people who played it, so I'm sure Gearbox would take good care of all platform versions of Duke if this rumor were true.

I knew this was going to be a "dumbed down for platform" conversation.

I'm just going to leave it with "you're wrong" since I've played enough wonky giant hit box, seemingly random headshot, 3-button-mashing games to know that they aint all the same.

Were did I say "They are all the same"? I know there are horrible ports on PC, but same goes for consoles. You ever play Quake 4 on the 360?

I'm saying that I'd imagine since a large portion of Duke's fanbase is PC, they'd take care of it as well as console versions.

LOL - I wasn't quoting you

I was agreeing with you.

I don't believe that games are being ruined by consoles, and the players are the reason they dumb them down. Hell, how many people actually use a mouse or keyboard on their console.

Prey didn't really feel console-y to me, so as long as they give me at least that level, I'll be ok with it. Besides, there will be plenty of other things to gripe about in a game that can't possibly meet expectations anyway.

That little break in prey where you resurrect yourself by shooting down the spirit birds or whatever they are..... definitely console-y.

Prey is one of my favorites though.

I'm probably going to rile some folk with this, but I'll say it anyway. Assuming this rumor is true (big assumption, I know), and DNF does finally come to fruition this way, we have Take 2 to thank for it. I hate evil publishers as much as the next guy, but the lawsuit had the effect of forcing 3drealms to farm the game out to Gearbox. In my opinion, that's the only way it was ever going to get done.
