Too bad it won't be for PC... console only.

@Slayblaze - Both games will be Xbox 360 only from what I've read.

@HokieKC I hope they don't want a sub fee along with the 360 live fee. It looks really good, and might nab a 360 just to play it

@(Unverified) - As long as it's not micro-transactions I don't really care.

I can only see Undead Labs giving themselves plenty of rope with these posts. Especially when they keep using concept art rather than actual screenshots.

Everything that is said now will be remembered and compared against what is actually delivered. Much better to manage those player expectations by not building them up to begin with.

Alot of these guys cam from Blizzard and ArenaNet, not worried one bit. These guys will deliver a polished fun game.

Sigh....I read this whole article and then only realised by reading the comments this is a console only game. I thought it was the "other" zombie mmo in development.

Massively really needs to put a PC/Console Tag on their news if they are going to start covering console only titles in a genre that is predominantly PC.

I heard that UDL is already rethinking the whole console only thing. Time will tell.

@Dunraven They have to negotiate with M$ on that one, which I'm sure they'd be up for if they latch GWL on it, but the biggest determining factor will be the success of Class 3, the XBOX LIVE! Arcade game.

Even then, PC production would be a sideline next to the console version, and most likely -after- the former is already produced.

I want it on the PC, but not a year+ after the console version.

@Dunraven - No. Microsoft was named the publisher recently of Class3. And both Class3 and Class4 are being developed simultaneously.

I haven't seen any screenshots yet for this title, the only thing they have posted so far has been artist renderings. But I'm getting a feeling that this game is going to be very similar to Dead Nation on the PS3. Which wouldn't be a bad thing, but I'm not quite sure we have an MMO here. Maybe if they charge $20 for the game then a monthly fee of $1.75 we might have something - but I just can't see a lot of console players forking out a monthly fee on top of their XBOX Live sub.

@Triskelion - Plenty of people have been forking out the monthly fee on the Xbox 360 for FFXI and Phantasy Star Universe since 2006. And both of those are PS2 ports not exactly the latest and greatest stuff.

@HokieKC

If they're going to make it 360 exclusive and have it be a lobby-based shooter with a subscription, it's going to flop hard. On the other hand, if they're going to create a fully realized MMO in an open world environment with a subscription, you'll never see it come to 360. Microsoft will just relegate it to Games for Windows Live, they'll never allow such a game on Live unless they have some drastic change in policy.

When Funcom/Cryptic/Square Enix have all announced dead ends on 360 MMO development, mainly due to resistance by Microsoft, I doubt Undead Labs is going to get any preferential treatment, even if Microsoft is publishing.

@Omali - Class4 will be a 3rd person open-world MMO. Not a FPS.

Microsoft is the publisher meaning they are paying for most if not all of the production costs. And this game is being developed specifically for the Xbox 360.

Will be fun to play i'm sure. Big fan of the zombie genre of games. However. Honestly, I haven't bought a console since Nintendo 64. Wish they would make it for the PC.
