Duke Nukem Duke Nukem 3D for PlayStation Network
Just an idea to maybe port the Xbox Live Arcade edition of Duke Nukem 3D to the PlayStation Network (A.K.A. the PlayStation 3's equivalent of Xbox Live Arcade). Just a cool thought that's all, and you do not have to do it if it would take too much time from developing Duke Nukem Forever or if you guys are not as experienced with developing for the PlayStation 3. Just something cool to consider nonetheless.

That's not necessary: Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown will work perfectly on a PS3. Moreover, a physical copy of the game is harder to lose in case of hardware malfunction, while a DD copy would be lost if the hard drive of your PS3 crapped out and you were unable to access your PSN account.

Yes, now while that is true, Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown is incredibly clunky in terms of frame rate most of the time, and I personally think that the controls are quite awkward as well.

Well, that is if you can find a physical copy of DN:TM anywhere. Even tho eBay may be loaded with them, you don't know what condition or quality that game is in, and if you do win one of those auctions, you may wind up paying through the nose. I may have to look at local exchange stores this weekend...easier said than done if I run into it, tho.

Yeah, like I said, the only chance you have is to hope that a local mom-and-pop second hand game store will have it (not a GameStop or FYE, or any of those big chain used game stores, since they don't carry games that old).

I would also reccomend checking craigslist, people put up some of the stupidest stuff on that site just to make a buck or two. If not there try to find a copy of Duke Nukem: Time To Kill, just to pass the time and see if Duke Nukem 3d gets put on PSN.

If you have a fat PS3, you can also install Linux, which enables you to run the Linux version of Duke3D. According to this thread, it runs smoothly at 1280x720 full screen. And while you're at it, you could also install DosBox, which would allow you to play many more DOS games on your PS3.

Look I do own Duke Nukem: Total Meltdown. I bought it for ten dollars at a local game store I and still believe it to be poorly coded for the most part. It appears that the last three people who have commented on this board so far knows what I intended to talk about.

---------- Post added at 09:29 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:22 PM ----------

But also I would like to mention that if porting Duke Nukem 3D to the PSN would halt the development of Duke Nukem Forever, I would strongly advise against it.

Check my thread.
Its up to sony to give the ok make it available.

I was more interested in the multi-player portion of the game myself.
Kind of odd duke 3d and doom isnt available,but Wolfenstein 3D is.

Would halt Duke Forever development?

Anyway,all the more reason it must be a problem on sonys end.
If they had the time or money for a small team to port to Xbox and iphone,a PSN port should have been just as easy.

You do have a very good point there. Do you think that we should argue with Sony to allow a game like this or have you already tried and presumably failed?

If you want this awesome version of Duke Nukem 3D you'll need to go to your local games store and shell out some cash for a REAL games console which actualy gets decent games (Xbox 360). After you purchase one of these bad boys you'll be able to play Duke Nukem online like the rest of the community. Until then you will have to enjoy Little Big Planet (Lolz). 3D realms doesn't even exist anymore, their not porting it to PS3

Here's an eBay link to someone who has it for only $9, ka-ching...sold. And it's a top-rater seller on top of that, and $1.50 to ship it, definitely cheaper than getting an XBL copy, I have to think.

This is off topic but want to ask anyway. For the Duke Nukem total meltdown PS1 version, can you play it on your PS2/PS3 with keyboard and mouse.

The PS2 version of Deus EX 1 & Red Faction 2 has mouse and K/B fuction.

Lol as far as I know, no you can't play it like that. It has 3 controller settings though. I personally choose the last controller setting as it seems to be just like Syphon Filter's default controller setup.

Are you serious? I have a Xbox 360 and even i know its a piece of s***. It gets the red ring of death, disk errors, scratches cds and breaks every year or so. There are only a few things that are good about it, which are the games (for the most part) and the online service (which you have to pay for).

Exactly why I like the PS1 backwards compatibility for that reason. I don't think that it was that they aren't porting it, it's just that since 3DR knew about the b/c to PS1 games thru PS3, and that copies of DN:TM were available on eBay from time to time, and that DN:TM is almost as good, if not on par with the X360/PC version, they probably wanted you to go the PS3/PS1 backward compatibility route vs. that of downloading thru PSN Store.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D for PlayStation Network
No that doesn't make any sense. It's on the 360 because Microsoft will not rip them off like Sony would. Also only the 60GB Ps3 plays Ps1 discs! Alot of Ps3's will not play playstation one i have my own and I think ps3 is poor. You are never gonna see Duke Nukem Live on Ps3 .. Buy a cheap xbox and you will convert to xbox in no time

Also Xbox isn't a piece of **** at all, all xboxes are covered by 3 years now! Red Ring means jack. It scratces CD's ONLY if you move the console while the disc is in it and it's running (What clown does that?).

xbox 360 is better haters. I am tired of the hate i'm seeing ITT.

No, it's only the 60GB that plays PS*2* discs, all PS3s are still capable of PS1 gameplay, iirc. I own a second-gen 40GB PS3, and it plays them flawlessly.

8IronBob is correct. All PS3s will play PS1 games (I personally can say the Slim model does, as that is what I own), but not too long after the launch batch did they stop offering PS2 compatibility.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D for PlayStation Network
Right...in fact, the PSX version of Duke (DN:TM PS1 game thru PS3 compatibility mode) may actually be better than the XBLA counterpart, because of that extra content that they added in back in those days. I know you won't get any Trophies with any PS1 games, but at least you do have a better game in terms of content.

DM:TM is great for that extra scenario but the controls on the PS1 were terrible. But maybe you can change the way it aims with the options though. They even had the special pig cop enemies I think another new enemy was also in it.

Irritated Re: Duke Nukem 3D for PlayStation Network
Seriously though,
Is Sony really that unwilling to give you a license for the game?
Is it really that much more difficult to develop for the PlayStation 3?
Does the system not support a MIDI sound system?
What is the main reason why a great game like this has not been made available on the PSN?

Also just to finally respond to Rapture_Rising's comment, I do not think that it would be better to rerelease Total Meltdown as I think that game suffers from an awful framerate, less detailed graphics, and a lack of good multiplayer options (system link only). It did have cool music, I'll give you that though.

Re: Duke Nukem 3D for PlayStation Network
In Total Meltdown, how was the movement scheme? I know that PS1 games could not rely on using analog sticks as not every controller had them. So how did the PS1 controller handle the strafing and the aiming? I looked at one youtube video and I don't think I ever saw the player look up/down once, so I'm guessing that the ability to aim up and down was taken out.

It is there, but the controls pretty much suck. So does the framerate. If you can get past that, it is Duke and there is a new episode.
