No S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Console Compromises

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 Q&A with the Team #1 on Facebook answers some questions about GSC Game World's upcoming first-person shooter sequel. They go into detail on some gameplay elements, and start things off with reassurances for PC gamers that the Windows edition will not suffer at the hands of the game's console versions: "Since we develop primarily on PC, you won't see any compromises in the PC version. The key difference between the PC and console versions will be the beauty of graphics (meaning PC will offer more of visual effects)." Thanks PC Gamer.

Cutting down for consoles can go beyond just graphics. There are some things that would require fairly fundamental differences that, if the PC were to be fully supported, would require significant amounts of work. The most obvious example could be things like the size of maps and so forth because PC's have many times more memory than consoles. That's usually a restriction you have to design to from the outset.

That being said, as others have pointed out, the thing that really breaks console ports is the UI and control function and layout.

I have faith that they'll do it right though, but man, they're going to have to spend a hell of a lot more time on QA and testing than they have in the past. I can't even imagine the sort of rage we'd see if a console game came out as buggy as past Stalker games were.
