Volition Values the PC Versions of Its Games
Volition games aren’t exactly known for having quality PC versions. Actually, Volition hasn’t even handled those versions in the past; they would instead outsource them. That isn’t the case with the two games they have coming out this year — Volition is handling all the PC development on Red Faction: Armageddon and Saints Row: The Third.
And so for this year, at least, Volition really cares about the quality of the PC versions of its games. Says the company’s Eric Barker, to Eurogamer:
You should see [the PC version of Red Faction: Armageddon], it looks absolutely beautiful. If you’ve got a great graphics card it looks fantastic. We definitely believe PC games are great and if they’re done right and done well by a studio, they’re phenomenal.
He also says something interesting about PC game piracy.
Let’s make a game that’s worth stealing, and then we’ll worry about making sure they don’t.
Those aren’t things you can’t do at the same time, you know.
Yes, I know he’s just trying to make a philosophical point about piracy! Shut up!
