Ever consider releasing USandbox for Xbox 360 / Wii / ps3?
« on: June 03, 2009, 12:50:37 AM »
I've wondered if it wouldn't be a good idea to make a game out of Usandbox and release it for consoles, I've often considered what kinds of crazy stuff you could do with it, I remember just shooting and playing with the pool ball for hours when I first got Usandbox.

I wondered if it could be released as a downloadable via the arcade just as a trial run see if you get any interest.

i don't know how much time Dan should work on the code to make it working on the consoles. Moreover the controllers aren't very good to build up a system and to run it and so on...

The only positive thing, however, would be the CPU. Both Xbox 360 and ps3 would have more cpu than a usual computer; however in a few years the computers will have more cpu than consoles.

I also don't know what kind of "burocratic" procedures should be made in order to relese a game for xbox 360 or ps3.

Well the 360 is a platform very similar to the pc in terms of coding.

I love the idea, but it requires more resources that I have at my disposal. Does anyone have $100,000+ they'd like to throw at this problem? :)

I also don't know what kind of "burocratic" procedures should be made in order to relese a game for xbox 360 or ps3.

Commercial games released for the Xbox, PS3, and Wii all require approval from the console developer (Microsoft, Sony, & Nintendo) and thousands of dollars in licensing and testing fees.

Releasing a game via Xbox live or WiiWare is a simpler proposition.

Well the 360 is a platform very similar to the pc in terms of coding.

This is generally true. It would still be a huge undertaking to modify Universe Sandbox to work on the Xbox (not to mention developing a controller friendly UI).
