RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Summary
While Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is now out on iPhone and iPad, boiling the blood of veteran RCT fans. Atari announce the "completely different" PC version is due this holiday. It's a "multiplayer" version, apparently.
Atari say it'll have "even more social features" with co-operative gameplay. It's unclear if they mean 'more social' than the mobile version, or previous PC releases.
Atari assures us that a "PC experience" is in development for the next RollerCoaster Tycoon, meaning that the human spirit might not be crushed after all following their 'RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile' announcement.
RCT 4 has been unveiled for iOS, plunging hopes of a new serious entry into oblivion. This abomination maybe overlooked if an actual PC version is in the works.
Sorry thrill-seekers but while Atari may have teased a new RollerCoaster Tycoon in the works with a looped GIF of a coaster in motion, it appears this isn't what PC theme park managers have been hoping for.
A hashtag was posted alongside the image - #RCT4M - and unfortunately that 'M' reeks of mobile. Atari posted the tease on their official Facebook page; a harbinger if you will.
THQ auctioned off its properties during its bankruptcy, and now Atari will be doing the same, as it tries to raise $22M to recoup some of its losses.
Frontier Developments' David Braben has condemned the actions of PlayStation 3 hackers for their arrogance, and says this is not just an "academic exercise".
Sharing hack details citing 'freedom of speech' "is such rubbish," he says. All PS3 owners will suffer their actions, not just Sony. Must "roundly condemn" hackers.
