Would you play chess on your PS3 or Xbox? Even if it looked as nice as this?...
...And whatever happened to this thing? Vaporware to the end - or does it actually exist, in the sense that someone can really buy/play it?
I've Battle vs Chess, so I can vouch for it actually existing. It was not launched in the US though, so it is kinda harder to find. Mine was purchased on the brazilian version of ebay (and was kinda expensive, ~US$100) but the game is really fun.
I didn't like the "special" modes, but playing on the regular mode is quite nice.
Regarding Pure Chess, it is slated to be released next week on the american store, and I'll certainly be trying it :))
Battle vs Chess is okay, although the opening book is weak. The engine plays the French and Caro-Kann exclusively (almost) against 1.e4. The US version will be called "Check vs Mate", I believe. The hard part is finding people to play on XBOX Live.
That game (Pure Chess) is PS only. So, no, I won't be trying it on Xbox. :(
thank you JUST thank you watchng both vids has gotten me FIRED UP about chess! want both games how much does each cost ?
Battle vs Chess is the regular PS3/Xbox360 game price, it depends a lot on where you can find it for sale. When they relaunch as Chess vs Mate it will probably be far easier to find.
Pure Chess is already available on the EU PSN, I don't know the exact price of the american store (it will only be released there on the 29th) but it appears to be something from US$5 to US$10
5 to $10 sweet when you say PSN do you mean PlayStation Network or somethin else.
Yep, PSN is the PlayStation Network. I didn't see any official prices for the US one yet, but it appears to be up for 5 euros on the EU one, so the conversion shouldn't be that far off.
Here's a link with a video to Pure Chess game for PS Vita.
Looks like for Vita and PS3
Pure chess is suppossedly available for download tomorrow. Anyone going to get it?
I will be getting it. I am very new to Chess. So no matter the engine or whatever ill be challenged lol. Hope we can download it from the Store.
Just saw Pawn Sacrifice, absolutely dreadful.
