Free Radical: Which Platform Should Get TimeSplitters 4?

In some ways, we applaud the idea of Free Radical asking the gaming public their opinion on the issue, but in other ways...won't this just reflect the huge number of Wii users out there, thereby making the results easily predictable?

Free Radical has posted up an interesting poll at their official website, and as you can see, it asks you a very simple question. Which console would most want to play TimeSplitters 4 on? As of right now, the Wii leads by a significant amount with 45% of the votes, with the PlayStation 3 in second at 25%, the Xbox 360 in third at 21%, and the PC bringing up the rear at 4%.  Now, we refuse to believe that all the FPS fans out there want to play TimeSplitters 4 on the Wii, as that would essentially sacrifice any and all chance at a supremely technically accomplished title. Of course, after the flop that was Haze, perhaps some gamers don't care so much, anymore. Even so, the series in question has a large following of fans, and they've been waiting for another true-blue sequel for quite a long time. Wouldn't it make the most sense to develop it for the most powerful consoles? We're not being biased, but we are talking about a FPS here, correct?

Anyway, place your vote - if you think it'll make any difference - and we'll see how Free Radical processes the results. Even though they kinda screwed up Haze, they should be able to produce another high-quality entry in the critically acclaimed TimeSplitters series.

Cool, thanks Ben. I'll be sure to check it out. Hope PS3 wins, or they make it Multi-platform.

I don't want TimeSplitters 4 to look like TimeSplitters 3 did.

So does this mean they haven't even started working on the game?

We're looking at 2 years from now right?

45% of people want this on Wii. You know why? They made the mistake of buying that piece of **** and now they want something to play on it so they can say that they didn't make a mistake.

TBH, I think they should focus on a Timesplitters 2 HD remake of some sort. Because I think they will kill this series dead if they make a poor game.

TS was always a meh game for me. I picked it up for the PS2 when my clan moved from KZ to TS and it never kept my attention. The level creator was cool though.

Looks like the PS3 is making a comeback. I don't plan on getting the game either way so it doesn't really matter to me.

After Haze, I'm not really looking forward to this. I used to love TS on the PS2 but I don't think there ready for the next-gen jump just yet...

Sorry to double post...

According to the letters section, they are making Timesplitters 2 HD! Read this...

"Hey guys!,

Are you guys making or thinking about TS2 HD? Please release it.

They should go multiplatform if they dont, they should make it exclusive to the 360, because the 360 really doesn't have any other good exclusives except GOW2. Ps3 on the other hand has alot of good games coming this and next year.

why not multi? It's not like there's a real reason why it should be exclusive, unless it gets adapted to the Wii control scheme, of course.

nowadays the only reason to make a title exclusive (unless you're a first-party dev, of course) is if you want to make a really big game, in which case it goes to PS3.

If Free Radical doesn't screw TS4, i dont really care if its exclusive or multi, as long as it arrives for my PS3

There just getting opinions, of course TS4 will be multi-platform! They'd be idiots if it wasn't.

Im curious, after Haze I wonder how many actually care what console it comes out on. Instead of taking poles, they should focus on making a good game. PS3, 360 or the Wii, it don't matter if the game sucks...on second thought the Wii fits them nicely, (Nintendo seems to love mediocre games)

If this has split-screen as fun as the 2nd one, I'm gonna buy this. There arn't enough split screen games on PS3.
