Multiplayer included in Star Wars: FU for Xbox 360

1 min read

doobiwan posted a comment yesterday that got my mind thinking.

As we know the multi-player section of Star Wars: Force Unleashed is not going to be included in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game (click) but strangely enough it is going to be included in the Wii version.

Now this never made any sense to me and was met with anger and amazement by the general community, however now that Microsoft has patented and virtually confirmed the existence of their Newton motion controller a new idea is starting to form.

We all expected the new motion controller to be announced along with the Banjo game but that announcement came and went without any utterance about the Newton, so everyone then started looking for the next family game in the list and have possibly overlooked the most obvious of the lot.

Has Microsoft pulled of a coup and organised to have a multi-player section for the Xbox 360 using the Newton controller? It makes sense and it would be the easiest way to energise a mass take up of the new controller as the Star Wars fanatics are a very large and vocal bunch.

If they have done this then there is going to be egg on Sony’s faces as there version will be the only one without multi-player then…..

Who’s up for some online duelling in HD? I know I am….

    I really hope there is some truth to this.

    There is no backing what so ever at the moment… but it makes sense doesn’t it πŸ˜›

  • The Wii version is going to be made of Win and Wii control system πŸ™‚

  • I really hope not, my main reason for gaming is so that I can sit on my couch and punch buttons, I really really don’t want to do light saber battles even though I’m incredibly excited for this game it’ll be huge turn off for me πŸ™

    Dude, don’t get my hopes up like this. You know how much of a Star Wars geek I am.

    If this does happen it would be great for Microsoft and a bit of a blow for Sony, but, it would be worse for the Developer.

    There aren’t 50 PS3’s out there, there’s 12 Million. By excluding something as important as multiplayer from only the PS3 version they will effectively be destroying their own sales to a large share of the market. Wouldn’t make sense… Unless there is going to be some major compensation from Microsoft…
