So there you have it, 3D Realms sounds interesting in getting their game on Live, but Microsoft is booked and not exactly beating down their doors.
Don'cha just love how anything said on this forum is suddenly "breaking news"?

And what careful examination of the facts did you do to arrive at that conclusion? I never said anything of the sort.

No, that's most definitely not me. While it's very well known I detest online petitions because they never EVER have any kind of effect, I wouldn't go onto one and say anything like that.

There's been several stories online based on my remarks in this thread. Kind of surprising, I didn't think what I said was anything special.

Obviously your word is worth something... At least the Xbox Live Arcade team will likely know now that you're up for allowing them to bring it over. Have you guys been getting any emails from these gaming news groups asking more in-depth questions or are they content with the information in this thread?

Yes, I know these petitions aren't worth shit, and I signed multiple times with absurd names just to prove that point.

GOOD LORD and FFS, for the last time, I created the petition just to get the subject more popular. I know that if Microsoft was swayed to port the game it would be because they've noticed a large demand for it, not the petition... please stop stating the obvious, we know.

Don't count on it. Here's another small tidbit most people aren't aware of. MS has set an upper limit to size of a game on XBLA. If you're over that size, you don't get on. That size is 50Mb, of which Duke3D's grp file is either at that, or already over it, so some work would have to be done to make it fit.

This is part of what I said above about "it's not as easy as here's teh code, put it online now."

My .GRP (Atomic Edition) is about 43 MB.

Yeah, it will be a tight squeeze. But, GRP plus CON files is below 50 MB.

The CONs are in the GRP So, the GRP plus the executable(or whatever it is on an X360) and config file (if you can remap keys).

But I'm guessing that what you are saying is at least you folks know about the game, understand that it'd be warmly received and are exploring how to do it...

If I'm wrong, tell me ...

Re: Duke 3D for Xbox Live Arcade!
I'd be in heaven if both Duke Nukem 3D and Rise of the Triad were added to the Xbox Live Arcade Library. I still have good memories of playing ROTT over the modem with a single friend and finding the God or Dog mode power ups. Would be nice to have easy multiplayer access to both those games.

Well, doesn't Xbox has it's own Xbox Media Video codec (sames as Windows Media, only for Xbox) which it supports directly? I mean the video cutscenes of Duke were uncompressed; Encoding 'em should size the game down, at least a bit.

Duke on XLA would be a dream come true. Some of my fondest videogame memories are from duke nukem 64 (wasnt a pc gamer back then). I really hope this makes it somewhere to people who can make it happen, if i were rich i'd buy my mom a house... and pay for duke nukem to be able to be played over live!

Actually Joe, MS is going to abolish that limit soon, when they release Castlevania: Symphony of The Night, alongside a new 512mb memory card.

Until a 3D Realms staff member states: "Duke Nukem 3D will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade" it's all bullshit.

Bull.
Shit.

Although it's funny when websites grab quotes from 3DR staff members and twist what they say. Or, heck, make up a fake interview. Fun for all

However I'd buy an Xbox 360 just to play Duke 3D... sad, I know. Putting ROTT on XBLA... now THAT would be awesome.

Yes, I think I can say that I would buy Duke3D as soon as it came out, even if it was upwards of $10. If it had Live co-op and deathmatch and maybe worked just a little bit better than DOOM (which I seem to find always lagging online) then I would play it all the time. :-D

Request for a offical DUKEXBLA response
Ok, ive posted this because its been some time since any details have been handed out regarding DUKE on XBLA. Ive read its "already been discussed", various websites have said that, but that was a long time ago and i am posting this in hope that Joe or somebody will alert us to exactly where this stands.

Or maybe even word on Duke Nukem on the Wii?

All im asking is for a response from someone who is in the position to give a real answer. Even if its bad, i just want to stop hoping for something that might never come.

Peace.

I'm not saying Joe is a lier but something may have changed with XBLA. Joe said that the file size limit for a game is 50 MB. I was just chatting with a friend of mine and he told me he has the Castlevania demo on XBLA and the file size is 92 mb.
