Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition for PS3 Was Considered, Didn’t Make the Cut

If you read my review of Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition, you know I’m quite fond of it, and I was definitely fond of the original game that changed the PC RPG landscape fourteen years ago. Today we learned an interesting snippet of information.

Apparently a PS3 version of the game was considered, seriously enough to get into talks with Sony about a possible port. Unfortunately the project proved too complex to actually see the light, as Creative Director Trent Oster revealed today on his personal twitter account.

It is quite a pity, since console users only got to play the mediocre Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance and Dark Alliance II, and the original Baldur’s Gate definitely deserves to be played by as wider an audience as possible.

    Dark Alliance Mediocre? It may not be like the cRPG’s on the PC. But they are far from mediocre. For what they are; Overhead Action RPGs like Diablo; they are fantastic games. At least IMO.

      Compared to the real Baldur’s Gate games (or diablo, mind you), I’d say that mediocre is a compliment.
