    Why do consoles get priority?
    What about PC gamers?
    We want good games too!

    The PC version will have more features than the x-box one.

    Also there will only be a couple of months difference in release dates. X-Box late 2002, PC early 2003.

    Lucasarts is providing plenty for PC owners over the next year or two, so don't get all worked up over a release date difference for one game...

    Not an imperfect version. It will be a bit different than the PC version, so it isn't quite as far along as the XBox version anyway.

    Dan = The Man.

    and;

    OH. MY. GOD.

    Only (slightly negative) comment is that it doesn't exactly look 3000 years prior to the movies. What are the comics like in that regard?

    Other than that, I could have been told it was an Outcast screen, and I'd have believed it...

    All those who won't/can't play Galaxies can sleep easy now!

    Sorry, my fault...I guess so! Do they have a guesstimated release date for it?

    Bioware's website says 2002. But it sounds like x-box version in late 2002, maybe PC version early 2003.

    Cool, Dan. Those screens look pretty sweet. Does it say anywhere on that site what mag thats from? Are these from the Computer Games issue that was mentioned earlier or another publication?

    Just found this. It might help shed light on the whole PC/Console release of this game. It's along the lines of what Nom Anor was talking about in regards to the Computer Games issue.

    Computer Games

    >>>However, PC gamers will not be seeing this game until well into 2003 as LucasArts made a strategic decision to release Knights of the Old Republic for the Xbox first.

    Neither company wants gamers to think for one second that they're deserting their PC audience. "We want BioWare to sort of be a combination 50-50 console and PC company," explains BioWare joint CEO and designer Greg Zeschuk, "and what's really important to us is that we don't forsake either one?<<<

    I think they are from the Official Xbox Magazine.

    I don't care if it goes to x-box prior to PC. I consider that the public beta-testing phase, so the PC game is perfected before release :p

    Oh, there's a couple of other pix in Rabid_balding_ewok's link, including a speeder (concept).

    I guess all will be revealed on lucasarts.com next week.

    BaldingEwok - that is indeed the same article in the mag. That's the mag's official website.

    And yes, those are the same screenshots, but those scans don't do them justice.

    Sithy said it all. I'm a little dissapointed about the game coming out on X-box before PC. But as others said it might be a good thing.The screens look promising. Compared to the Tales comic series this time period does look a lot more advanced. This game takes place 400 years after it so it's reasonable to see this advane in technology. I mean look how far we've come in 400 years.

    I'm annoyed that it will come out for Xbox first. Can anybody say 'port?' I sure hope that isn't the case.

    Whats the word on multiplayer? And does it mention anything about an editor in the article? It's based on the NWN engine so I'm assuming that there might be one, maybe this is what will be different with the PC version.

    From a marketing standpoint, I think multiplayer would steal some of SWG's thunder. I know very little about NWN though.

    From what I've read (trawl this thread for the links) this is a SP only game.

    It's based on the NWN

    Are you sure? I thought it was a whole new engine.

    I don't think it would hurt to much. Biowares RPG's generaly have the multiplay option which entails playing the single player game with one to five other players. Whereas Galaxies would be with a couple thousand people in a huge persistant game world.
