    I know there was a thread about would you get it for the PS4 or PC but I am just curious how people feel in general if THEY had to decide whether for it to be on the console or not.

     

    Discuss here what you think the positives and negatives would be from both, and your opinions... please refrain from telling people their wrong... its all friendly speculation here

     

     

    Nope it's never gonna happen and by some really slim chance it does then fail I wont be bothering to pay to play it. EQ was brilliant in the early days and it was written for PC and imo that's why it worked. I'm really getting pissed off with all this console crap being thrown at every game that gets aired.

    IMO MMO's should remain true to mouse and k/board and if by some chance they do develop them I just hope they don't allow cross platform gaming.

    I think that bringing it to PS4 will actually have benefits for the PC users as well, tightening up the programming & getting the game to run far more efficiently will pay off dividends such as better memory control & reduced footprint leaving PC users with high end systems more room to upscale the graphics while also letting lower spec pc users run the game with nice frame rates.

    The desktop & console platforms will have separate servers & mostly down to input control methods, I don't think the PC/MAC game will suffer UI hamstringing as much as people fear it will, good design is perfectly capable of delivering the game to 2 different control schemes & user bases.

    More platforms opens up the game to more revenue & therefore potentially a bigger & faster development of the game post-launch, more time spent on the engine & getting it running on more than 1 platform also breeds expertise with the engine & increases the range of things the programmers can get it to do.

    So I'm voting yes, I'm optimistic about the game being multi-platform & think it will prove to be a smart move in the long run, indeed I hope that the game will support PC, MAC, PS4, XB1 (perhaps after a short PS4 exclusivity term) & maybe more.

    XB1 exclusivity is what I'm hoping for.

     

    Yes, I'm serious.

    I played XI mostly on PS2, and really enjoyed it. The die hard PC fans will scream to the top of their lungs because the UI will have sacrifices due to a controller limitation, but its not that bad.

    If EQN launches on ps4 I will get PS4 and EQN. My 65' tv + surround sound and comphy chair is much more enjoyable than my 24' PC monitor and computer desk chair. If it came out on both I will also buy a PC version to assuming I can play one account on ps4 and/or PC if I choose to do so. Like I could with XI.

    Waiting for:EQ-Next, ArcheAge (not so much anymore)
    Now Playing: N/A
    Worst MMO: FFXIV
    Favorite MMO: FFXI

    Simply won't play it if its cross platform. Not only will the game and UI suck as every cross platform game has but I quite frankly don't want to deal with console gamers. Modern PC gamers are bad enough.

    Do you actually think that Sony would put their own game on the competition's console?

    The PS4 will probably last about 8-10 years.... Try not to update your PC, see how long it ''lives forever'' ? MAYBE 3 years until you have to play everything at Low settings ? SO much for the forever lol...

    LoL - Yes, exclusively.

    It doesn't really matter whether or not we want EQN to come to PS4--

    IT IS COMING to PS4.

    As the Vulcan's would say, "it's only logical."

    Thats been proven wrong by FFXIV already.

    EQN will almost certainly be available on PS4, but I think most would say there is a low chance the servers will actually be shared between PC and PS4. Making them separate is much more likely to be done (like what ESO is doing). There are just too many variables to deal with otherwise.

     

    Also, it will probably not be available on XB1. Almost no chance this is going to happen. Why you may ask?

    (1) EQN is a reason for many to buy a PS4, thus propelling the console forward in the market.

    (2) Why would Sony allow some population loss in the console market? Population is paramount for any MMO!

    (3) It would be simply crazy for Sony to give up a potential exclusive to MS!

     

    So it's only logical. Now if only I was trained in risk management so I could come up with actual percentages about those predictions...

    When PS5 comes out you release a new client that runs on PS5, software clients can be always updated.

    This is not a problem.

    Exactly, like they are doing with DCUO.

    Ifg they port it to PS4, it'll only give them more trouble and give them more chance at failing the game. Somehow what happened with D3, oh well... let see what happen.

    NO NO NO NO NO. A controller is NOT appropriate for an mmo. If they are planning on making it for ps4, the PC version is going to suffer. Consoles are not good platforms for MMOs.

    FFXI and FFXIV would beg to differ..... People are really misinformed these days lol...

     

    I agree that menu navigation and chat are hard/cannot be done efficiently with a controller, but strictly gameplay a controller works perfectly, its just a matter of having good devs (see FFXIV:ARR). For menus and chat, you can plug a KB+mouse on a PS4  ANYWAY...

    Actually I would say that the UI issue has been confirmed again with FFXIV.  You may like the FFXIV PC interface, but then you like playing with a console too.

    Isn't the UI exactly the same.. ? Except the obvious spells bars VS gamepad cross
