good read, cant wait for this game. for an RPG the graphics are unreal. some exciting news in this one.....

QUOTE
XE: Speaking of Jade Empire, the Jade Empire game seems pretty well received by critics and gamers alike. Will Bioware be continuing JE at all? A rumor going around is that the game is that Jade Empire 2 is going to PlayStation 3, but that seems unlikely especially since traditionally Bioware only works on one major project at a time.

Ray: We don’t comment on rumors, but we can definitely say that MS has been a great supporter of BioWare in the past on both Jade Empire and Mass Effect and we definitely look forward to working with them in the future – they’re a very good partner. And, BioWare definitely plans to continue the Jade Empire franchise – the Jade team did a great job with the first game in that series; we have great teams working on all of our games here. We’ve also said in the past that we’re working on not just one, but two Xbox360 titles. Enough said wink.gif


QUOTE
XE: Visually what we have seen for Mass Effect is quite impressive, in fact on par with other next-generation titles like Gears of War. How long has it been in development using the Unreal Engine 3, and are the visuals just as detailed in one area as the other, or in some of the bigger areas, does Bioware become more “lenient”?

Casey: We’ve been working with this engine since the beginning of the project, and much of our work has focused on adding proprietary extensions that allow us to do some unique things with cinematics, dialog and digital actors. We haven’t yet shown the kinds of things our characters will be able to do, but it will be amazing. Our focus on advanced digital actors is paying off in some unbelievable ways. One interesting side effect of having extremely advanced and realistic characters is the sense of empowerment you get as a player when you create your character’s unique appearance, and that character ends up looking surprisingly real and is capable of very subtle acting and facial expressions etc.

Generally though, what we’ve shown as part of our announcement is just a teaser of things to come. We’re building a whole galaxy of aliens, creatures, and exotic locations – in addition to a sophisticated system for variety in the humans you’ll see in the game, including lots of different clothing and armor types. We also have a very sleek, futuristic architectural style to our environments that’s only hinted at in the released imagery. In short, we expect the final game to exceed the scope and quality of the few teaser scenes we’ve shown so far.

Yea i heard that rumor.......your "friends" at 1up started that shit (or atleast thats where i saw it first, then it was in the october EGM in the rumors section) and the funny thing is i saw about a month before that an interview with some bioware rep saying they have two titles in development for the 360 and one of them is jade empire 2 and the other is a new IP they dont want to comment on (we all know what that is now). Its times like these i wish i kept page history on my comp sad.gif .

On a side note, Somehow i just a got a feeling of deja vu blink.gif

i thought that since MS published the first JE they owned the IP rights. obviously this isnt the case but even the most jaded sony fanboy can see from the hint in the interview that JE2 is headed to the 360. if they are using the Unreal 3 engine for both games that will be one of my fav martial arts games love.gif

i dont understand why any developer wouldnt love for MS to publish their title. with a publisher having that much money, there should be less constrictions of budget, marketing, and pressure because i havent read one complaint from anyone working with MS.

I have to also think that all Bioware titles will be MS exclusive just because its easier to develop for and more like a PC, and seeing as Bioware makes PC versions as well, they can do what they did with xbox..xbox versions and pc versions. I dont see them manking any ps3 titles in the next couple of years, just my opinion, and definitely Not any ps3 exclusives like incognegro said. That could all change unless sony buys the rights to them all, but with their financial situation, the days of them buying 5 years worth of a series sequels are gone.

start the flaming beerchug.gif
