I wonder where this is gonna end. What is realistic? 3 million? 3.5? It's hard to say... It's slowing down, as expected, but it could always speed up again in the final 48 hours or so. I am reeeeaaaally curious about any further stretch goals. A Vita version would make me so very happy, though it's unlikely it would get a physical version.

I would say 4 million at the absolute maximum. It certainly is slowing down, though we do have many days left, more than 20, so that's good. Add in last-ditch additions and I see 3 million being all but certain, 3.5 if we're lucky, and 4 if we're very lucky.

I asked a question to IGA, using a button on the kickstarter a day or two ago, if a PS3 version is possible, even with stretch goals.

This was the response back:

Hi there, sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately, technological limitations and a 2017 release date make this a challenge.

I can assume that a PS3 release is not going to happen.

why is it hard to release the game on handhelds ? Nintendo consoles ? or last gen consoles the answer is : Unreal Engine 4

let them craft the best looking game as much as possible I've had enough playing LQ side scrolling games, also look at Mighty no.9 the game graphics looks nothing special because it's getting ported on every console so they had to use a weaker engine to make it work on lower end devices which is meh :/

Ugh, no PS3 release. That sucks hard. Makes me rethink if I'll pledge.

Bloodstained's Kickstarter just hit $2.25 million, which means the Retro Level has been unlocked! Next up: Classic Mode and the Basement Key

As someone who doesn't have a PS4 or Xbone and would probably need a GPU upgrade to run it on PC, I've still gotta say that given the 2017 release date, they're probably better off not porting to PS3 and 360. By 2017 very few games will be releasing on these systems, not to mention that they'd have to rebuild the game in Unreal 3 to do it I think. It'd probably cost them more than they'd stand to make on the platforms.

I don't think this game is going to be THAT demanding, all things considered.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you are a console gamer, save up for a PS4 (Or Xbone if that's your thing.). You have two whole years. TWO. YEARS. It's unreasonable to expect the PS3 to be relevant in 2017. Also, in two years time the PS4/Xbone will be much cheaper than it is now. Also, there will be more to play on them by then (if people don't want one right now because of lack of games). And if all else fails (and you have pledged $60 for a physical copy and STILL haven't bought a new console by 2017) you can always sell the game when that day comes.

That's what I'm deciding to do.  What with Shadow of Mordor being really laggy on the PS3, The Witcher 3, and this, I think that I'm just going to try and save for a PS4.  Heck, I bought my PS3 for LoS and Assasin's Creed 2.

I've worked out that I can afford to pledge $100.  Pledge has been made. 

Quick question regarding the KS (having never made a pledge before).  When signing up, does it matter if your account name doesn't match your real name?  I want my Forum username as my name in the credits.

Also, don't forget that they haven't posted how much people have pledged through PayPal. That should be at around $100k right now judging by Mighty No. 9 numbers.

by 2017 the x360 & ps3 will be obsolete but ppl still want ports of CURRENT gen games on last gen hardware? come on son

its like when ps3 was still widely used but i was still hearing about ppl only owning a ps2 and gamecube. i bet some of yous still only have a ps2 and nothing else. its like using a 56k dial up modem in 2015. its like asking if avengers will see a VHS tape release. its like still using ur first email DragonLordXx27@aol.com for resumes. its like still using a flip phone when everything nowadays is touch screen. come on son

I don't know why people are freaking about performance issues. This isn't Crysis or some cutting-edge 3D game. I doubt it'll be any more demanding than Guacamelee.
