I dislike the console and it really does restrict OFP's replay value. Players can't really take advantage of Flashpoints sophisticated Scripting Engine and i'm sure editing and developing missions with the ingame editor would be nothing less than hard with those oversized television remotes.

On a console I think OFP would move from a realistic soldier sim to an action title... Much will be lost along the way.

Good choice of console; The Xbox will be the only one that could properly do it with an 8Gb hard drive for patches or add on's witch you can download off the net. but yes I totaly agree you will lose the combat sim idea and it will turn into a FPS also I dont know how the ping would be from an xbox if you decide to connect all of us together Posted Image

I've said it before, OFP is not suited to console gaming.

It doesn't come with a ketybord as far as I know, but if MS release one then it really will be nothing more than a glorified Gaming PC.

I agree that ofp is not for console play. Anyway, I just hate so much the Xbox because of is big size. Did you guys have already try the joystick of the Xbox? IT'S HUGE!!! That console is not playable because of that.

BIS, don't release OFP on Xbox, it's a waste of time. No one will buy it because the console sux.

or the user missions, addons, more campaigns, mods, new weapons, sounds, etc... Man, I'd put away the game after a month or two if there wasn't the user made missions, or addons, and the mission editor.

I can see people just compare OFP to HALO... how sad.

X-Box is that not just an odds and sods of outdated lowpowered, lowspeed bits out of an old pc jammed in a box?

first of all , the controller for the xbox are just fine like they are. not too big not too small and extremly good to handle.
i like the idea of OFP for xbox . the ping will be excellent as you can only connect via broadband.
true, editing and making mission or scripting cant be done on the xbox but well that is what you have the pc for Posted Image i dont know what and if there will be an integrated browser and i havent checked the xbobx online capabilities yet but i for sure would gt ofp for xbox aswell. simpling because it has amazing graphics and loading times. afterall the xbox is just a pc optimized for gaming. so if they get it to work that you can make your missions and scripting on pc , upload it and download it onto the xbox it would really rock and the community would surely benefit.

furthermore , i dont think you necessaryly need a keyboard to play ofp....

Yeah, I really like the Xbox controller. I dont know about better pings though. I tried playing Halo via Gayspys Xbox tunnel prog... and pings were not too good. but I will admit that that was pretty jury rigged, and Im sure a professional product would perform better.

no , it doesnt have a mouse , but what do you need it for ? the aiming of any FPS works just fine with the thumbsticks. i didnt believe it myself at first but then i played max payne and it is just fine. unusual at first of course but i like it ..

I have to agree with Jackson,

The Xbox may be a glorified pc but it's one that they can optimize for developing the game and make the graphics top notch. The controllers are great unless you have tiny hands and there are enough buttons/joysticks to get the job done.
I'm hoping that they don't dumb it down too much for xbox and keep with the original theme, I can't really see a reason not too as a lot of the xbox market seems to be older with it's hometheater capabilities and all. As long as BIS releases content once in a while through the ethernet port I think multiplayer will thrive. Bis, I salute your decision and I hope you give the xbox version the attention it deserves.

You must be joking. The xbox contreler is f*cking big. I don't have little hands, and it's imposible to play a single game with it. Xbox is the worst console out there.

Deathguy, i think you just dont like Microsoft or something, because xBox is a very cool thing, and definitively the best console out there. Go on BIS!  Posted Image

1. well, it's the error blue screen that I hate most with Microsoft (Windows)

2. Xbox is not cool because it's big. When I say that the controler is big, it's a faq. I have already try the joystick of the Xbox, and it's not playable. Posted Image That is why I have not buy it and that I hate it.
