Well I see that XCOM 2 is now available but you have to use Steam... Funny how I can play Fallout 4 on PS4 without having to use Steam. Looks like Steam paid Firaxis not to release on consoles. Thoughts +Paradox Interactive ? +Johan Andersson ? Gonna do the same with Hearts of Iron 4?
Firaxis Games won't rule out a console version of the turn-based strategy sequel 'XCOM 2', but the game's director says that, for now, the team is focusing entirely on PC.

+Brian Herndon​ There's also the fact that PCs (good ones) are generally way more optimised to play XCOM. Especially considering the XBOX ONE can't even run Halo 5 on splitscreen and maintain a good fps.

Consoles might pull more money in general. But XCOM isn't targeting the console audience. Sure they might make up some players, and be hyped for it, but, considering they had to pull the release date back 2 months, coding it for consoles wasn't really on their mind. They can only spend so much money on a game prior to release, so probably didn't want to wait until the console version was ready as well.

When you consider how hard XCOM 2 is to run on a general PC, (mine will run at 30fps+ when not loading the map on High, not Max, graphical settings). It isn't installed on the SSD though. Without some optimisation, I don't think consoles would be able to handle it on the higher graphical settings that are expected from "next gen".

Look for playthroughs of XCOM:EW or EU. Almost all completed ones are on PC. The PC buyers simply make up too much of the majority, so they get priority.

If this was a fps, or a different type of game, then you might see more focus on consoles.

Anyway, 2K and Firaxis mainly release games for PC with only a few console versions. Like Civilisation Revolution which is so dumbed down it's laughable.

I do have XCOM: Enemy Unknown on my 360. The mission loading takes around 10 to 15 seconds, it looks terrible compared to the PC version, soldier moving is clunky and it's hard to specify the height of a movement (even with using the bumpers/triggers, whichever thing it was). The AI takes longer to do their thing.

You also need to consider that updating their game costs them money. It's cheaper to do a PC update than an XBOX one (not sure about PS though).

They might make money from a console release, so maybe there will be one before the end if the year.

Very decent Vet Clinic I have brought my 12 year old cat here several times. Teeth cleaning for her and a Lion Cut. The only thing even remotely negative I can say is - The last two times I brought her in for a Lion Cut I have asked them to dander bath her afterwards. Yet the last two times now I get her home pet her and hair flies all over the place. So I have to get a wet washcloth to wipe down all the excess hair from the Lion Cut. It reminds me of going to the barber for a haircut and them being to busy to wash my hair afterwards. Other than that perfect ; )

Its like the DMV... anyway the only reason I go there is for the auto machine bill pay thing. However last time I went there both of those machines were broken/off line. So I walk over to the customer service desk and realize I have to take a number. Meanwhile one of the reps is going on forever like he is trying to sell a used car. Anyway I realize that I am going to be there forever just to pay the bill. Yes I know use the online but I cant because I have moved and its showing the old account. Comcast gotta love it.

Took my 96 Mercury Cougar here to get the power steering pump replaced. Baxter had the part and a part time mechanic did the work at the attached shop. Also had the mechanic check to see why the brand new heater blower was not working. Unlike the shop where I had them replace the blower motor this mechanic actually checked the fuse. Fuse replaced and works fine ; )

Professional with the latest technology. I have finally found a dentist that I feel will do the job right. I got a good impression from this one and will be going here from now on. They also take molds of your teeth in case anything happens to you that requires some form of reconstruction. They made sure everything was the right size and did not force anything onto the teeth that was too small. The tech stayed while the mold was being done - no walking out and using a timer. Squared away professional behavior here. Excellent US dentist. Went back 4/18/14 to finish up two broken fillings, crown redu, and a deep cleaning. Was in the chair for almost 5 hours ; ) (needed to get as much as possible done in one visit) once they shot some pain killer into the crown area I sighed with relief. I had been enduring a fair amount of pain for a long time. Dr. Zingerman, Jill, and the rest all took good care of me. I slept solid last night completely pain free for the first time in a long time.

Heater blower went out on my 96 Mercury. I set up an appointment to replace the stabilizer bars also. I asked them to check the fuse for the heater blower to see if I needed to order a new blower motor. They get the bars done call me and tell me the fuse is fine. I order the blower motor off parts geek and have a shop in Longview(where I was at for work purposes for a week) replace the blower motor. They tell me the blower motor is still not working and will need to be troubleshot. Up to this point I had spent a fair amount of money so I get a second opinion at another shop in Longview, WA guess what the mechanic tells me? and then shows me as proof. That's right a burnt up fuse... So that's two shops that don't check the fuse AND lie to me saying the fuse is fine grrrrrr a few hundred dollars later and here I am letting you all know about Kelly's the first shop to tell me the fuse was fine! I will not be taking my car to Kelly's for any future work nor should you unless you have money to burn.

They hate it when you have your own part. They put in a power steering pump and saw that it was leaking badly and made loud noises. What did they do? they left it in(they had the car all day) and did not put the old one back in. They knew it was a fail part and then tried to charge me again to put the old one back in... I also noticed that now my transmission is making noise. It was not doing that before so now I am wondering if they are messing with things to make more money off us. Anyway I took it to a different shop (which you should do) and had good decent mechanics solve the problem. Avoid this place unless you have money to burn. I also had them replace the heater blower motor. When I got the car back the blower still did not work. So at the next shop guess what it was? a fuse... they did not even check the fuse... They wanted to charge me to troubleshoot a damn fuse!

Outstanding US dentist with a professional team. I had a root canal issue fixed from iffy former dental offices in West Seattle and Federal Way. I now live in Pacific, Wa and went here for a second opinion after an Indian dentist at White River tried to tell me I needed 2 root canals. Myron Brown examined and found that I did not need a root canal at all. I am very grateful that Myron Brown saved me from that. Excellent and Trustworthy US dentist.
