    I won't be able to make the chat, so can someone ask my question?

    Question: Brian: Why did you leave Interplay, who are making shitty console games, in order to start up your own company and make shitty console games? Weren't Interplay's shitty enough, or did you feel that you could improve on them?

    In case you don't like that wording, here's a different approach:

    Question: Is InXile only going to make console games, or do you plan on making some PC games as well (even if it's just porting to the PC)? Also, why have you aimed for the console first? Is it because you feel there's 'easier money' to be made in console games and that making (and ultimately selling) a PC game is a much harder task?

    Damn. That was pretty much going to be my first question although probably worded a little differently. ;)

    I'd like to hear his explanation for choosing the PS2 as the primary platform. I wonder if he'll acknowledge it's about sales or try to give it some spin as a creative choice.
