7 years after hackers got it to run on the PSP, 2 years after other hackers did the same on the PS3, Sony and ID Software will release Doom officially on their home console, finally admitting that yes, every computer in the world is entitled to run the father of all FPS.
Of course, this official version will include Doom3 (which is probably actually the main reason for the release… too bad ’cause the first two are much better IMO) with lots of added features such as split screen multiplayer and trophies.
Also, just to clarify, Doom 1 and 2 will be included in the package.
You can get more juicy information in the official PS blog, or you can enjoy this chronology I put together:
10/2012 – Sony and ID Software run Doom on the PS3
Don’t get me wrong, I am not pretending it is the same amount of work to port existing sources and to add new features to an existing game. I am also not pretending any hacker ported Doom3 to any of those consoles yet.
And before people start complaining in the comments: I am joking, this does not in any way mean that Sony admits hackers are doing them any kind of favor. Jeez guys, grow up a sense of humor or something 🙂
Is there any old-school game you guys would like to see officially ported to the Vita or the PS3?
