Tales from the Crypt !!
- Jan 6, 2013
I am overwhelmed now with all the table's now for the 360,But i wonder if f.s. plans on releasing more table's and i hope they do but i wonder how long it will be before the next update.
I think they will release season for Pass, they are waiting to release on IOS until the season is finished maybe they are doing the same thing with Microsoft.
There is plan to put more tables out. Patching on Xbox 360 is quite a bit of work, so we're trying ot lump in as many tables as possible. We'll most likely prepare to submit after the last table pack in Season 4 is done so we can add Season 4 to the DLC options.
The way DLC is handled on Xbox 360 it's really hard to pre-sell a season pass in the way it currently works.
As always, thank you Mike for the information. TFTC, this should answer your question, at least in part.
Well it somewhat answers my question.. all i wanted to know is when s,c is released is that when we will be getting the rest of s4
It will probably be 2-3 months after SC is released. First FarSight has to finish the work itself, then submit to MS for approval. That will probably take a while, if history is any indication.
Contrast that with Zen (of PFX2 fame), which seems to not only have a larger staff and a more simple template to work with (as opposed to FarSight who has to make each table from scratch based off the actual table) and a much more expedited submission process for Sony and MS consoles.
I know the wait for new tables is, at best, painful. I respect anyone who chooses to support TPA via consoles. But since I'm so impatient (LOL), that's why I chose to support the PC version instead. Bear in mind that my original console of choice for TPA was the 360 when it was first released. I do hope you all will get to enjoy the rest of season 4 sooner rather than later.
IMHO, the elephant in this room is online multiplayer....
This very reason is why I'm trying to decide between Android or iOS. I was primarily a Vita player, and I know it's just part of the console approval process, but damn....it's just becoming too much.
iOS seems to be inconsistent with keeping up with android and PC as far as being on time. Granted, it's nowhere near as bad as the console waiting.
My increasing thought is that operating system platforms don't work too well with FarSight as far as promoting TPA. Unless you visit digitalpinballfans.com or subscribe to the newsletter, you might never know an update is coming. I may be wrong, but I can't remember ever seeing any heavy promotion on any mobile device or console. Guess all of those Candy Crush clones/EA/AAA titles (which will most likely sell like hotcakes anyway) get top billing LOL.
