THAT'S the movie I was trying to remember and couldn't! Good shout out. Much clearer comparison there than with Inception - although I think there are still parallels between it and Control.

Word is it'll be out before the end of the fiscal year, so by March 31. But they've typically come out in the fall, late October or early November. So I'd bet on it being around then!

No sponsorship deal involved with these pieces - Rich spoke with the developers and condensed their discussion into this story. But they were generous with their time and as often happens, some parts of the interview wound up getting cut for space, and I turned those bits into the stories that ran this weekend.
On the console port, I thought they were surprisingly frank in that basically, yes, the process does mean some resources have been given to the ports (more often you'll get a boilerplate PR statement that's all sunshine and roses). I don't know that we expressed an opinion on the points they made, so I wouldn't call it 'biased', it's just the devs making their argument for why the console version might have secondary benefits for us.
Hope that helps! Glad you've enjoyed the coverage.
Thanks for the info! May as well clarify myself, when talking about article bias it was never an opinionated piece of writing. With much of the article being quotes, it definitely felt heavy-handed on the developers side. I guess I would have hoped a comment on the fact it does take resources away from the development of PC patches, bug fixes and new content. I would definitely at best a console port is a draw-win for the PC market against consoles, not a win-win as they so happily put it.
That said, from a developer perspective a console port on a successful title would be an easy decision. Bring your game to more, let more enjoy the title and earn more money without having to invest into creating a whole new game. There's no fear over sales being successful on a new platform since PC has already proven the title will sell. As a developer your question would have to be "how soon", not "should we" bring it to consoles.
If you use the Bluetooth protocol, you won't need the dongle - Valve recommend using the Wifi protocol with the receiver, but they say that if you're using a PC without a free USB port, Bluetooth will work.
The developers specifically mention Mark of the Ninja as a source of inspiration! I'm looking forward to this, too.
At first I thought, "wow, harsh" ... and then I got the joke. It's been a long day.
Quite an old joke too, but I'm glad someone got it! Hope your day got better bro.
Excellent info! I think what's neat is that it isn't really a "bug" per se - the game is working correctly. Different systems - jumping, rockets being actual entities in the game - work with each other without the designers having had to put them in on purpose.
