Well I’ve been searching the internet again and again to find out if I could find any evidence that the creators of ‘The Simpsons Game’, at some point had said they weren’t going to release the game for the PC. The first place I looked of course was at EA’s official homepage for the game and in the top here it lists the following platforms: Xbox 360™, PLAYSTATION® 3, Wii™, PSP ® (Playstation Portable), Nintendo DS™ and PLAYSTATION® 2.
Is it just me or do everybody fail to see the PC up amongst all the other major platforms on the market at the moment. Are they actually releasing it on PS2, Nintendo DS and PSP, all three platforms which can’t perform anywhere near what a PC can, but all us with a console (Okay, I do have a PSone, but for that there is no releases of games anymore) are going to be cheated by EA Games for this?
I’m a Simpsons maniac, simple as that. I’ve seen all episodes (then again who hasn’t?) at least 10 times each, I’ve had most of the Simpsons games avalible for me, but apparently I’m not going to be able to have this one… At EA’s official homepage there is a forum, with the thread: The Simpsons Game on PC1 and I’m going to quote a few of the people there, in my further outrage of how we can be left out (again, it seems that EA is starting to move away completely, from creating games (of quality anyhow) for the PC. If you look at the EA Sports games Madden NFL 2008, FIFA 2008 and NHL 2008, there is so many features stripped from the PC versions, compared with the next generation console versions.).
Gameplay.com had the game for preorder on the PC, so did Game.co.uk, where the latter has added the: ‘Product temporarily removed from sale.’, which might mean that it’ll be out later. Anyhow, a few quotes from the official forum:
jedted (C&C) – This is a complete utter outrage!!!! With the Xbox Live achivements being added to Games for Windows how can they not release a PC version of the game?! I was so psyched when i saw all the demos for this game but then i was pissed to find out it’s on practically every platform EXCEPT PC! EA must really despise PC gamers if they refuse to release a port of this game.
This is the Simpsons for cryin out loud! If they think people won’t buy this game for PC then they must be really stubborn or really stupid!
sting29kid (EA.com) – I agree with you. I play alot of games on the PC. They should make it for PC and MAC.
This thread is moved to the “feedback” area so they will look at it and hopefully consider the requests for PC/MAC version.
This is just two of the posts on the forum, which contains a lot of other great things, if you should be interested in the game that is of course.
You can read more about the game, if you should actually be the proud owner of one of the consoles that actually play it, at Gamespot.com. The link is for the Xbox360 review.Tags: ds, Games, nintendo ds, nintendo wii, pc, playstation, ps, ps2, ps3, The Simpsons, wii, xbox, xbox360
