KSP on XBOX One: Currently not avalible

22 posts in this topic

Hi, avid PC player here.  I want to buy the game on the Xbox One as well, but when i open the store, it says: Kerbal Space Program is currently not available. Why? When will it be available?

Not sure why, but a word of advice.

 

DON'T BUY KERBAL SPACE PROGRAM FOR XBOX ONE OR PS4

 

The console versions are apparently unplayable, with saves corrupting regularly, no mod availability, outdated version (the console versions are still on 1.1.something I believe), etc. 

So yeah, I'd stick with the PC version if I were you, until Blitworks finishes their overhaul (last slated to be released in "early 2017", so much for that). 

:)

We’re currently working on an updated console version of KSP, and are removing the game from the Xbox and PSN Stores until it is complete. This will be a free update for anyone who already owns the game on Xbox One or PS4.

If only there were some sort of place to make Announcements where this information could be posted before people get caught by surprise.

Wait... Updates on console cost each time or did i misread, because my interpretation makes me feel like updates on say ps4 cost a fee...  Again its possible i read into that wrong

@Badie That reinforces my understanding of console players pay for each update as well as the games initial purchase...which makes my want to not invest in a console copy, but again, i may be barking into the wind at my own echo of failing to understand..

No not the case usually. Console games the patches/updates are typically free - eg 1.1.0 to 1.1.1, but a new edition might cost money - same as PC games.

As this is a new "edition" of KSP some people were worried they'd have to rebuy KSP v1, @Badie is just reitearting owners of the first exdition console game will get this new edition for free.

Hope that helps

It would be foreign practice to charge for an update and as far as I'm aware of, that is not what she's saying. Unless I missed a line of dialogue, she means that the update is free for those who own the game and those who don't own it, will buy the most recent version; which is common practice for digitally distributed console games.

The only payment would be the one to purchase the game and the obvious DLC.

I was unaware you were planning on making a whole new version of the game and repackaging it as such, but it makes some sense considering you want to distance this new version as far away from the old one as possible.

@TriggerAu That explanation clears it up, thanks!

Still a bit confused as to why you'd pull it from the store, may as well leave it up and then let people update when the 'new' version comes out.

Only reason I can think of is that they've completely ditched the FTE port, started again from scratch and Xbox/PS4 stores want them to go through the certification process again, as it's not really an 'update' but an entirely different codebase.

You've got your thinking cap on dear sir...

I'm a bit surprised nobody thought of it sooner, they basicly couldn't ditch the port untill Squad setled on an agreement with FTE to part with eachother.

Let me refrain my 01:00 statement a bit :D, It could very well be that Squad couldn't have pulled the FTE port untill legal matters had been agreed on between them, and now that they've officially parted the roads have been cleared to finally ditch it.

It's been almost a month since it's been off stores and I was wondering if there was any piece of info you could give me to tell me if it will be off of stores for much longer

You will have to buy the game, if that's what you mean.

Why was it ever released before this was the case?

 

Edit: I am glad to see they took it out of the store so new people can't be suckered in.

Any answer I could give for that would be speculative.

I'm looking forward to a new update, I bought the game on console when it was on sale a few months ago, having already owned the pc edition. The console one was somewhat nice, considering it would play at a solid framerate, unlike my aging/terrible computer, is there any chance you guys are skipping 1.2 entirely and moving immediately to 1.3?

I just purchased the XBOX ONE ELITE & disappointed to hear this news today when I wasn't able to find it in the store to download. Please notify me when update is available to purchase!! THANK YOU!!
