Rumor: Duke Nukem 3D for Xbox Live
Sources say 3D Realms is prepping DN3D for Live complete with a four-player cooperative mode.

January 14, 2008

Last August, 3D Realms head George Broussard suggested that the studio would like to develop a version of its classic PC first-person shooter, Duke Nukem 3D, for Xbox Live, all but saying that the ball was in Microsoft's court, but unwilling to elaborate with details. On Monday, sources close to 3D Realms, which is separately working on the long-in-development next installment in the beloved franchise, Duke Nukem Forever, confirmed to IGN that Duke Nukem 3D is, in fact, scheduled to debut on Xbox Live within the next several months. And best of all, it'll feature a four-player online cooperative mode over Live. Insiders also allege that it will boast an eight-player online deathmatch mode. Duke Nukem 3D released for PC in early 1996 and soon became a runaway hit. The title helped define the iconic videogame hero, who spit out one-liners nearly as often as he gunned down alien scum.

Duke Nukem 3D also raised the bar over then-benchmark shooters like Doom, featuring the ability to look up and down, as well as offering inventive new gadgets and weapons like the jet pack and laser trip wires.

Look out for more information on the project in the not-too-distant future.

This would be niiiiiice :) :up:
If it happens, I'd get it. My computer is too fast to support it.
I hope they include the 4th episode from the Atomic Edition.

I also like the comment in the link "So it's only a port? Sweet, that should only take 'em about six years or so. Can't wait!"
I'd get it for 400 MSP. No more though. 800 MSP can kiss my ass.
