    Words can't describe the suckiness of a 3rd person shooter (what SC:Ghost is). Can you say Shadows of the Empire (N64)?

    Sounds like a cross between Renegade and Jedi Outcast. :barf2:

    It's sad to see Blizzard reduced to such a level.

    I hate them. PC gamers made Blizzard what they are, and then Blizzard betrays them by making a starcraft game, albeit crappy, for a console.

    Yes, their roots are in console gaming... Blizzard started off porting games from console to console. They didn't even write an original title until Warcraft.

    I suspect that hundreds of thousands of people have just lost faith in Blizzard.

    Sounds like Vivendi has finally gotten them to publish crap in an attempt to get more money for their wavering empire.


    Edit: Some people at InsideMacgames actually like it!! Somebody kill them. Please...

    Q: On what platforms will StarCraft: Ghost be available?
    A: We are currently developing the game for multiple console systems. Further details regarding platform/country specifics will be released in the months ahead.

    Q: Will there be a PC and Mac version?
    A: No. StarCraft: Ghost is only being developed for console systems.



    Sounds like possibly all the consoles.

    Definatly PS2. Every child, teen and adult in Japan has a PS2. It's funny to see adults hunched over playing PS2 (and a great deal of them do, compared to the US)

    ...or perhaps they honestly like the game, sans the zealousness. It'll be interesting to follow, but it still disappoints me.

    To me it's not that SC: Ghost will be a bad game, it's more that they could have done so much better.

    C&C: Renegade will show you how well RTS to FPS work on the PC... best to leave this to the consol where it has a chance...

    i would like to point out that people all over the net though starcraft2.com had something to do with this announcement, it doesn't / didn't. starcraft2.com points to blizzard.com which had the counter.. they are the same site, like mac-gamer.com and macsubculture.com

    One thing I am looking forward to about SC: Ghost is possible universe altering events that might lead up to SC2 some day.

    Well at least SC:G wont be avilable on the computer so it wont defile Blizzard's great computer-game reputation

    I hope SCG tanks and Vivendi goes in the toilet, they can auction off BLizzard and I can buy them for a dollar then pistol-whip the idiot at Bliz who authorized the game

    Wow, you all like to jump to colclusions dont you? While I would rather have it on PC and Mac, let me be the devils advocate here. Ok, it was just announced, none of you have seen the game running, none of you have plyaed it and probably none of you will play it until 2k4. So why is it already being called crap? Sure, consols have crap games, but they also have great games too. PCs and Macs get games like Beachhead, and other crap like that.

    How dare you say Beachhead is crap? Beachhead 2002 raised the level of games on the home computer. Have you ever seen so much repetition before? It's almost poetic.
