Star Wars - Force Unleashed part 1
// Submitted @ 1:16 PM on 06.09.2008
The idea to open this blog is to get as many information I can about Star wars-The force unleashed.
The idea for me to buy Wii from the first place was mainly star wars series, as Lucas always gives their best for Nintendo all this years and some nice and fun Nintendo games. Also the new controller type gives you the feel and movement in your hands and body to move your character, etc. And itâ€™s a kind of unique feel and extra fun that Nintendo pointed there and they made it!
Playing this game with Wii controller I believe is going to be MUCH more fun and realistic than any other console or controller type. But the pure hardware in front its competitors it will be hard as itâ€™s not a Wii exclusive.
I have xbox360 and Wii and I am thinking about pre-ordering the game. But I donâ€™t know which platform.
Shall I choose the best graphics? (And faulty hardware)
Shall I choose the best controller and feel?
More question coming on my mind after this 2 basics.
1st Xbox is SO sensitive and faulty about.. And scares me to hell while you play to explode (overheat) or something, the force will explode the machine in front your eyes (lol). Thatâ€™s terrorism that Microsoft created to us! (Gamers)
2nd There is rumors about Microsoft buying copyrights from Nintendo and create a similar controller? Is that true? (Code name Newton) I have a web link about this matter but I find it stupid after all, Nintendo to give copyrights to Microsoft (lol). Something that gave wings to Wii!! And itâ€™s No1.
Some posts from Nintendo and Lucas
"The Wii is a great platform for The Force Unleashed, because the console's motion-oriented controllers really bring the game to life," said Jim Ward, President of LucasArts. "We've worked hard to make the Wii version of the game unique in order to truly let you unleash the Force"
"The Wii version, in development by Krome Studios, will also add an exclusive duel mode in which players can compete head-to-head with their friends to determine the ultimate Jedi Master"
Some posts from other websites, want wiimote for xbox (lol)
"The Newton controller is going to have to small LED transmitters in a bar that you place next to your TV to triangulate the position of the remote by the LED sensor on the controller. The Big Button controllers that come with Sceen It! use an LED receiver that plugs into the USB ports. They also better get around to making a Xbox brand USB hub. Some of the original designs of the Xbox 360 had four USB ports in front and with all the Xbox accessories that use the USB ports would benefit from more available ports.
By making this controller Microsoft will be able to take away an exclusive feature that makes people want to buy a Nintendo Wii for around the cost of a standard wireless controller. If they bring an external Blu-Ray movie player they would take away one of the biggest reasons why current or potential Xbox owners would want to get a Playstation 3.
This controller would allow game developers to port Wii games to the Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade platforms. I would love to see games like Zak and Wiki on Xbox 360. Heck I would pay real money for graphical adventure games on Xbox Live Arcade. "
