Ships Ahoy - Pariah

Groove Games announces that Pariah has shipped, and Digital Extreme's science fiction first-person shooter is due in stores this week:
TORONTO - May 3, 2005 - Groove Games, a global interactive entertainment software publisher, today announced the shipping of the highly touted first-person action game, Pariah. Developed by top independent development studio, Digital Extremes, Pariah hits store shelves this week on the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and the PC.

"We're really excited to see gamers get their hands on Pariah this week,"
said Jon Walsh, CEO of Groove Games. "It's a great year for the first- person shooter genre and Pariah is a must-have for any gamer who loves the rush of fast-action fun gameplay and with Pariah's MAP Editor, the replay- ability is infinite."

Pariah has steadily gained awareness as a game to watch after it was awarded Biggest Surprise at the industry's Electronic Entertainment Expo by IGN.com last spring. The game intertwines a compelling story, evolutionary gameplay and stunning visuals to create an impressively immersive single- player campaign as well as fully loaded multi-player features including the exclusive Make-And-Play (MAP) Editor.

Pariah puts the power in gamer's hands to create their own playable environments using the tools provided in the MAP Editor. From manipulating terrain to changing weather effects to adding pre-made art objects and more, the MAP Editor harnesses the power of game developer's tools while simplifying them for anyone to use. Once created, gamers can share their maps with their friends via the internet with the PC version or through Xbox Live™, memory unit, split-screen multi-player or system link with the Xbox version.

Groove Games is publishing the game in North America while Hip Interactive Europe will publish and distribute the title in Europe, Australia and New Zealand. Pariah will be in most major retail stores this week for an estimated retail price of US$49.99 on Xbox and US$39.99 on PC with an ESRB rating of 'M' for Mature. For more information on the game visit the official website at www.pariahgame.com.

No, I don't play consoles at all. What makes it worse is when M$ goes from developer to developer with a trash bag full of money to get them to write their games for the xbox.

and this is different from Sony's method in what way?

Its the nature of the business. Its how things have been done for years. I know its supposed to be standard operating procedure to trash MS but to be honest, I think they've done a pretty damn good job of handling their games division. The fact is, publsihers are making very little on PC games. The smaller consumer base, the difficulty in developeing for a machine that has an infinite number of configs, the cost of support not to mention a hyper critical audience makes it quite easy to see why things are going the way they are. If you people hate the way Pariah was made (read; part of a cross platform release) then you have some heartache coming. This is the only way we're going to see AAA titles in the future because the days of multimillion dollar budgets for standalone PC games is just about finished. You can either buy a console and look foward to a game, buy the PC port or get nothing at all.

I like the first two options personally.....
