Looks awesome, I really hope this comes to PC.

Anyone going to pick this up on a console when it comes out?

If there's a demo, I'll give it a shot. I just don't see it working as well with a controller.

Also, in terms of this coming to PC:

* Redigit ended up being the last developer on PC Terraria, and personal stuff got in the way of his development so he stopped development of new content.

* 505 Games approached him about making a console version, and they came to a deal, so nobody from the PC version is working on the console version.

* Redigit has recently tweeted about possibly getting back to work on the PC version, but depending on the deal he has with 505 Games, he may not legally be allowed to bring all these features to the PC version, as it isn't his content to port.

So it's possible that PC will get this, but equally (or perhaps more) likely that it won't. It's possible that we'll get so much awesome stuff it'll make the console ports look weak and useless. We won't know until we know.

Strange someone would port your game but you down own the content. Figured they would be licensing it and... Actually I have no idea how that works.

Oh well, hopefully learn more. The new stuff looks great and the controls look pretty good, but its hard to say before I try it.

+1 to the demo idea.

Yeah, if there's a demo I might give it a shot, but I expect I'll stick to the PC version I already own. :)

Makes sense, a pragmatic approach :D

I played the PS3 demo before Travis gifted me a copy for the PC. The demo's music got a bit old after a while and didn't appeal to me as much as the PC version's music does. I'm slightly tempted to play the PS3 or mobile versions now that I've played through the PC version, but I'm not quite sure that I will. I think I agree with Travis regarding the controls for the console version and think that it seems to be a game better played with a mouse and keyboard on the PC. I'm interested in seeing what others think about the console and mobile versions of the game.
