E3: Thief III and Deus Ex 2 coming to consoles first

[05.18.01] » Thief III to debut on Xbox; Deus Ex 2 on an unknown platform.

   In an interview with IGNPS2, Ion Storm Austin confirmed that its upcoming titles -- Thief III and Deus Ex 2 -- will appear on consoles before PCs. Thief III will appear first on the Xbox, while Deus Ex 2's target system has not yet been determined.

   Ion Storm Austin explained the move as a decision by the developers to make multi-platform releases easier. Designing a title for the more restrictive environment of consoles and then porting it to PCs is easier than moving a game from the PC to a console.
