PostSubject: Star Wars Battlefront Elite Squadron - Originally a PS2 game?!   Tue Dec 08, 2015 7:03 am

First topic message reminder :

Well I came across one of the developers of the game and interestingly he says that ES was supposed to be Battlefront III for PS2 consoles:


Quote :
There was a short period after the next-gen versions were canned when we were expecting to release on both PS2 and PSP. I'm not fully sure why they decided against PS2 in the end, I'm afraid; the nature of our engine meant that it was roughly equally progressed on both platforms, so it's not like one was markedly further back than the other.

My best guess is that the PS2 version only existed to try to mop up sales from people who hadn't upgraded to next-gen yet, and when it stopped being Battlefront III that reason for existing went away, so better to just reduce costs further and release on PSP alone as an explicit side-game rather than a mainline title.

I can confirm this is true because I found some PS2 Memory card text within the game's files months ago but assumed it was from some other game. Weird, I'm beginning to think ES literally WAS SWBF3 under a different name. Usually I hear that they just used the assets and the campaign from SWBF3.

Unfortunately I can't speak to him because he's registered on some shitty forum that requires you not to use a "free email".

I would probably pay that much. It IS Battlefront 3 after all. Especially if we managed to modify some stuff ourselves.

Well if it WAS the 99% complete build, then I'd gladly pay $400 but for the glitchy one? No way, there's SWBF2 mods that work better than that. Would love to have any version but having a super buggy game isn't really worth $400 in my opinion.

If you look there, the clone trooper IS X1, right?

I wanted to have battlefront 3, it might have been even more amazing than ES. then again, I didn't have a PS3 so....... no multiplayer, no [HACK] for me.
