Posted on March 17, 2011, Phil Owen 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!
