Molyneux Talks PS2 | Monday., September 13, 1999

Found this quote on the Wire--here's a snippet;

"PlayStation2 represents an ideal platform for developing the next generation of computer gaming. The leading edge graphics system is far superior to anything else. Also, importantly for European development, is PlayStation2's focus on Emotion enabling us to concentrate on producing unique titles worthy of this stunning hardware achievement."

There's more where that came from over at our Console section...

Dreamcast | Thursday., September 9, 1999

Today is the day many of us have been waiting for; Sega's launch of their highly anticipated Dreamcast machine! I'm sure the people at Sega are rolling in cash by now...

Playstation 2 Internet Support | Tuesday., August 3, 1999

In fear of having my ass kicked by non and the rest, I figured I should probably update the site.  This isn't exactly B&W related, but it does make me wonder why Lionhead isn't porting to the PS2.  Follow this link to see what I'm talking about. 

Lack of Updates | Wednesday., July 21, 1999
Please excuse the recent lack of updates...  I've been out west for the last two and a half weeks.  As the only staff member at the moment, this poses a problem for the site.  So, once again, if anyone is interested in helping out with the site, give me a holler.


More Dreamcast Debate | Tuesday., June 22, 1999
Though Lionhead has spoken little about the console versions of their game, the B&W community can't seem to keep it off their minds.  Once again, the topic is Dreamcast  and the question of its superiority/inferiority to the PC.  The post can be found here on the Lionhead message boards. 

Console Question from Lionhead | Sunday., June 20, 1999
It seems the tables have turned on the Wire's message board.  non and the rest have given Lionhead the chance to ask the B&W community some questions.  Among these was one concerning the age old question of console vs. PC.  Console lovers, get over there and tell em' what you think!  The question reads as follows; 

"Q: Do you spend more time playing PC games or Console Game? 
 Q: Is your favorite game from the last 2 years a Console game or a PC Game - and what is it.?" 

This and many other question from LH can be found by following this link.

Saw this over at Videogames.com and found it rather interesting; 

"Nintendo of Japan announced today at an analyst meeting that it will release Game Boy games that can be downloaded through a cellular phone." 

Apparently, players will also be able to compete in an on-line fashion through some sort of a cellular network.  Click here for the rest of the article.   

More Message Board Discussion | Sunday., June 13, 1999
Guy by the name of NewJorg is interested in chatting about a possible Dream cast version on the Lionhead message board.  He has received one reply so far from astonish; 

"Current plans are to have a dreamcast version (If Paul gets those scsi connections going). It will be identical to the PC version in gameplay, but will lack a few of the graphic details" 

Get in on the conversation here. 

Message Board Discussion | Monday., June 7, 1999
For anyone interested, there are some in-depth console discussions going on at the Lionhead message board.  The first pertains to B&W's port and the second is about Sony's new Emotion engine.  Thanks to Niceguy for this. 

Molyneux on Consoles | Sunday., June 6, 1999
I have been directed to a brief article on the Wire concerning the various console versions of B&W; 

"a design group called Black&White light is working on [the console version] already. But this is a very limited version of the game. The essence is the same but they will have to make cuts from the game."

Next Generation Articles | Saturday., June 5, 1999
While the Black & White console front has remained quiet for quite some time, Next Generation has not one but two brief articles on the various consoles Black & White will be released on, and a mention of a Dream Cast version.  Peter Molyneux lends his input as well. These articles have been added to the console section as well. 

Welcome | Thursday., June 3, 1999
Greetings and welcome to the Black & White Console, the Internet's only source of news and information regarding console versions of Lionhead Studios' upcoming title, Black & White.  I would like to extend my gratitude to our gracious host, the Black & White Wire as well as Darren Wong and non for additional design work.  Currently, Black & White is scheduled to be released on the Sony Playstation, Sega Dreamcast, and Gameboy Colour videogame consoles.  Since the game is still far from release, there is little news or info regarding the console versions of the product.  Rest assured that as soon as such information because available, the Black & White Console will be the first to bring it to you.
