Hello to the community. ***
I have been watching this forum for a year or so in response to the possibility of getting a decent sim for the Xbox 360, and yes the PS3 and 360 are Next Gen Consoles. ***Speculation on this is only brought up from “ PC and next Gen consoles TBD”. ***I played F-19 stealth fighter on a Monochrome monitor with an IBM that had a 40 meg hard drive. ***But I played Atari and pong to. ***I am a 38 year old ***disabled guy that loves simulation style gaming and I understand that each platform has its needs. *** But since when does that give some one the right to bash on a console player. ***Now before this gets closed or flamed, my main point of this post is not to start another argument, ***but to express my concerns for the future possibilities of our needs as gamers. ***I have read many comments from Console players regarding their needs/desires for ArmA II to be released on the console market. ***In response to those many comments, ***I have read TO many disrespectful, ***not to mention, ostracizing responses. The reason this is so intensely disrupting to me is because for the sake of future gaming, ***we need to be One gamming community to support all options. *** This will only allow us the best results. *** BIS will release ArmA II to the console market, ***its for the company’s ***survival in the future. ***But this will only allow more financial support for the future installments. *** The last thing I want as a gamer, ***is for the market to stop producing games for the PC, ***or to dumb down games for the “general market”. ***Doing this would only reduce the general quality. *** If you believe the console market is a bad thing, ***that’s your opinion, ***But lets not encourage people to leave, or to make fun of the fact that they are “unintelligent” or don’t deserve Sim style gaming because they play on consoles. ***The difference in financial terms for the Console vs. PC market is Monumental. *** But that doesn’t have to mean we don’t get Highly technical Sims/games with Depth. ***If this company doesn’t succeed in ArmA II, there is a chance no one will see the next installment. ***
What does the community think about the financial/general ***impact that the console release will bring to BIS? ***If your going to input something, ***Make it legit....
