Crouching Tiger Not PC Bound

Following this morning's announcement of progress on the PS2 and GBA versions of the games based on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (story), we asked Ubi Soft to confirm this meant all the other versions were cancelled, and their reply keeps the status of other console ports up in the air, but confirms that the PC version is off the boards. Here's the exchange:

Blue's News:
Can you confirm the cancellation of the previously announced PC, Xbox, and GameCube versions of the game?

Tyrone Miller (Ubi Soft):
No, I can not.

The PS2 and GBA versions of the game are the only ones that we currently have approval on. We will be making another announcement about other platforms once we have approval. We will not be doing a PC version.

11. Would this even be a good game? Mar 20, 2003, 01:00 Saba
 
I don't think so, there's just not that much opportunity for a good video game if this were an exact movie-to-game make such as the PS2 (or something non-PC, anyways) of LotR:TTT. There was the benefit of the marauding orcish hordes, or the Matrix (although not an exact movie-to-game make), has the benefits of the (somewhat) marauding Agent Smith hordes.

I mean, unless it were a kombat-esque fighting game (where you would never have the choice of who to be), what are they going to import as mooks (since you gotta have mooks in kung fu games!)? Ninjas? Guys in those conical rice-paddy hats (and fortune cookies for health.. yeesh)? Have Tom Clancy throw in a few Russians, Chinese, and a few nondescript folk from some other troubled place on the face of the Earth?(Read: everywhere except maybe Phukit, Thailand)

(oh, and CTHD was a great movie! :D)

(Edit: (*)? what (*)?)

Stupid Ubi-soft assholes.

I dunno about you guys but I thought the movie was pretty good. Nice fighting scenes, good (if quirky) story.

Not good for ninja fights.
 
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22

Since I have no modern consoles, I'd have liked this game on the PC... well, if it turns out good, anyway. I think the game has potential... roaming China's beautiful countryside as Li Mu Bai, flying around and kicking ass. As a console game, it'll probably be just another standard clone, but PC games haven't been much better recently.

Goldeneye comes to mind as well.

Plus Star Wars games used to be (consistently) good.

YES!!!...there is a GOD, ... as I only have a PC and if the game is anything like the movie then I know I won't like it.

I wonder though, if the game will be only in Manderin Chinese with subtitles?
