What say you fellow SW friends? Are the Microsoft Windows PC fanatics here pretty pumped? It seems like Jim Ryan is working the Microsoft Windows PC side pretty hard!

Gotta love it when PR speak gets blown up like this. There's always another way.

I hope it requires a SSD and that it would fail to run on a traditional HDD. I also hope that the SSD needed is at least 5.5GB/s transfer speed. It would be a shame if all the hype around the SSD turned out to be false again.๐Ÿ˜Ž

Not the greatest R&C imo, it is better than the remake or whatever you want to call that game though.

These hardware engineers gotta cringe every time they see the announcement material. Just when I thought โ€œhighest quality pixelsโ€ couldnโ€™t be topped, the magic ssd came alongโ€ฆ

Nixxes is doing the port? More hope this won't turn into poop, unlike TLOU P1.

It's a sp game, what does it matter what year it's played? There is nothing gained when playing a single player game before someone else.

Awesome! The PC is finally about to get top tier mascot games again.

Jazz Jackrabbit and Commander Keen have been MIA for decades, and Gordon Freeman has retired.

Ratchet was never a mascot for PS. That was Crash Bandicoot, which is also on PC along with plenty of quality 3D platformers.

@girlusocrazy:I would love to see MS/ID do a new commander keen. A proper one, maybe in the vein of a metroid vania. The original had the same kind of insanity as Mario bros 3...it could be awesome.

On topic: I'm going to rise above cheap SSD related jokes.

I wonder if they will implement the full direct storage suite for this. Although, as i understand it, the game only uses the brute force of the SSD in the PS5 during loading screens (including the 3 second inter level loading screens).... so there probably wont be any need. A solid PCIE gen 3 or 4 NVME SSD should be plenty even if it doesn't use direct storage. SATA SSDs will just have longer loading screens I would think. Then there is the CPU load of course to get the loading times down...be interesting to see how fast that needs to be to match the PS5 (assuming they don't implement direct storage and GPU accelerated decompression, though seeing that in action would also be interesting). Should be a bit interesting at least. DF should get a good 2-3 vids out of it :P.

Then there is the question on the kind of GPU you will need to match the rendering prowess of the PS5s SSD......I'm sorry. I really tried to stay classy :( j/k.

This must be a false rumour, I was told it would never happen.

I have no interest but I'm curious to know how good or bad the port will be.

@moistcarrot: "Not the greatest R&C imo, it is better than the remake or whatever you want to call that game though."

Despite trying alot of the demos from the PS2/PS3 era, the only R&C I actually played fully was Quest for Booty, PS4 remake and currently playing Rift Apart. Rift Apart so far is the weakest of the 3. The whole switching dimension seems pointless and uninteresting. This game seems to have too many cutscenes(boring). Pretty game though.

We went from 6 months to 25 months between releases. :)

There's too much dialogue in general, and the problem is none of it is engaging or funny. They need to get new writers or get some of the OG ones back from the original trilogy, although considering that Ted Price came out and said he doesn't like the humour in the original games it's probably not gonna happen.

Oh that's cool, I didn't know that. What I did know is that Helldivers, Marathon, Fairgame$ are all DAY ONE multiplatform games published by Sony!! Let's FUCKING GO! I thought 6 months was fast with TLOU1 Remake, but holy shit, DAY ONE now!

I always thought that whole SSD being some magical to PS5 was BS and I never went down the rabbit hole with that claimed.

Unless they royally screwed up like in TLOU, it looks to be way better than the PS5 version. Much like God of War and Spider-Man. Would that really be "sloppy"?

I don't see any cons here for PC gamers. They usually wouldn't be getting these exclusives period. This seems like a general win and your post appears to be blatant spin.

I'm happy I did not play it on PS5. It seems like a great game, and having to play it at 30 frames to fully enjoy what the game has to offer would be pretty horrific to be honest.

It has a 60 fps mode ๐Ÿ˜„ Also, these games are made for consoles in mind. Not like putting it on PC is going o make it magically different.
