So come on what do people think are the possibilities of a next gen version of Rugby League Series, I know there has been a lot of talk about it but nothing confirmed about it...

So do you think it will happen??

I'd say they will make another Rugby League game, but not until atleast next year.

I'd really like to see a world cup feature in it so that the minnow nations can get some exposure. The players from those countries would really get a kick out of having computerised versions of them hehe and to a certain extent, i think it would promote the game. Bring it on i say!

Something like 2 I think?

Online play would be cool...same goes for Rugby 08.

well online play would be good if its better than the online play from the last game. but there wasnt really a market for online play imo, its not that big a title.

I dont even know if they will make a rugby league 3. is it worth them doing it again? are they making enough money out of 1 and 2? i woudlnt be surprised if there wasnt one :)

next-gen costs money and sidhe aren't exactly huge so would need big backing from a publisher to do so. also the ps3 is not even out yet in aus/nz etc which would defintely be a target for sidhe I would think since the success of gripshift on the psp especially.

I am sure another league game would be made but defintly not when the next-gen consoles aren't yet out everywhere in the targert markets. whether or not that means a 2008 version which includes the world cup remains to be seen.

woosaah
28-02-07, 02:10 AM
i dont think ps3 is a big issue for sidhe, they have already ported grip**** from psp to ps3 so i dont think it would be a huge effort for them to port the engine to ps3 for league. just having the money and the time to make all the highdef textures might be a bit of a mission. also their engine might be shown up a bit graphics wise if it isnt done properly.

esoj
28-02-07, 06:27 AM
yes they would have to improve the engine a great deal to bring it up to nex-gen specs. and I think the ps3 is a big deal for league because it will mean more sales and therefore money. the ps3 isn't out yet in a lot of their target markets for a league game so I doubt we would see one this year but perhaps an outside chance next year with it being the world cup if not then 2009 would be the year we see a league game if sidhe are still keen.

They should be keen, the League series is only their biggest seller.

I just hope they can get the backing to put out one last game sooner for PS2 and PC so we don't have to wait another two or three years for a next gen version.

Lot of work to be done, it must be said. I tried having another go at it the other week and I found it nigh on unplayable...

05-03-07, 07:47 AM
RL1 was far better than RL2 IMHO. If you ask me, gameplay was definately second to graphics, online and franchise. Again IMHO that was a huge mistake that im surprised SIDHE needed to learn.

I thought RL1 was an amazing product considering the development time and probably small budget. I had big, big hopes for RL2. That it seems was my mistake.

I would prefer the development on Ea Rugby to go on gameplay rather than adding the groundbreaking back of the box features like " Real time grass growing ".

I agree, but if you consider the popularity of league and the money it would cost to produce a very good league game, i might not be that cost effective as a result of sales. Then again, it couldn't cost too much to develop i guess.

One day we'll get something half decent. By then TRF will be a huge influence in the rugby world :P

melon
11-03-07, 09:54 AM
Well I'd reckon if you legitimately paid for it and got it from a legit source then it would be fine?

I suppose they might be trying to keep an NTSC standard in the USA, as opposed to Australia's PAL, but whoever are the big bad gate keepers for these supposed rules, I don't think they could tell by looking at it.

Anyway, I'm pretty damn sure if you were to buy a playstation or xbox from Australia or NZ or England or wherever, it would be 100% safe to do so.

No problem to play a rugby game with the PS 3 console because there is no zone with the blue ray. Now we doesn't care about PAL or NTSC.

I hope Rugby League 3 is an awesome game and teaches EA a few things about putting effort into develpoing their games and not just about making money all the time. Rugby 08 had so much potential but EA seemed to was their 2 years of developing.

Well by the time Rugby League 3 comes out if EA keeps making Rugby games they should be up to at least 2010 by the time Rugby League 3 comes out because HES, the rights owners aren't interested in making a game on next gen consoles unless the user base is big enough which won't be for some time to come, so unless someone else can pick up the rights and knock up a decent effort in a couple years we won't be getting no Rugby League 3 for some time which sucks balls.

EA's Rugby franchise illustrates how below par Sidhe are at making games.

even if RL3 makes an appearance on whatever gen it wants.

Rugby 2005 will be more playable than any future edition of Rugby League from Sidhe, until 2023...........by that time in 2023, EA's Union will be like Madden - so again Sidhe are just not up to scratch

When you look at your options - there is no decision to make - EA's series is by far better and more playable, despite the sport codes similarities.

Just thought I&#39;d provide my insight from 3rd August again.

rugbypassion
29-08-07, 06:53 AM
I reckon EA should make a Rugby League game. The gameplay of the EA Rugby series is stacks better than that of RL1 and RL2. This would probably also be fairly easy for EA as they have already created Rugby 08 and could base much of the Rugby League gameplay on that.

melon
29-08-07, 08:14 AM
It&#39;s not financially viable for EA to produce, so its not going to happen!

goranski
01-09-07, 05:04 PM
damnit!



they should make one anyway though, it would have great potential if a decent amount of money was thrown at it and marketed correctly



i know alot of my friends have had trouble grasping the EA RU gameplay and would easily adjust to a RL game :cheers: which is closer to :fb:

Radman

Make sure you get on their site and post all of the things you want done better in RL3 so when it does eventually get announced as in development they can cooperate with us and make the game alot better than the last effort.

as I understand it HES have exclusive rights for another few years on the licenses etc so EA can&#39;t really do anything for a few years yet unless they do it without offical licenses which isn&#39;t really the EA way. Sidhe don&#39;t seem keen on doing rl 3 yet due to a poor userbase in the next gen consoles. perhaps though in another year or so they may look at it again and other projects like speed racer will give them capital to invest in next-gen development. EA have risen to the challenge and are getting there with the rugby series hopefully if Sidhe do another league game they too can rise to the challenge.

gazza74
14-09-07, 07:24 AM
I dont see why they shouldnt release a RL 3 as it has been 2 nearly 3 years since the last release plus it was a huge sucess in the major countries that play the sport.
Seeing that Sidhe are the only that have TRIED to make a rugby league game i think the have done a superb job (for a kiwi company!) and if they do make a 3rd it will only be better than the 2nd.

ps. the online mode will DEFINETLY have to be re done as that part of the game was a HUGE let down for me....eg not being able to change time limits being the major one.
