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.
