Baldur's Gate to receive new life on the PlayStation 2.
It is now being predicted that PlayStation 2 is to receive a version of Baldur's Gate. Interplay has not made it official, but the company plans to publish this title. The gameplay details on this title have been very few and far between, however Interplay's plan is to alter the game to better fit the console style of gaming; making the transition from the PC onto a major console. Bioware is not to be developing this port, and most expect an official announcement as to this development will come towards December's end.
Since Baldur's Gate II has sold with insane numbers, it would be safe to bet that the PlayStation 2 port will receive a warm welcome. Further strength for the PlayStation 2 can be found in this title as well, because the Dreamcast port of this title has been canceled. This is yet another strength for Sony's next generation system, as Baldur's Gate is sure to attract some fans to the system.
