 Huh? Now, i'm wondering if spelunky (pc or xbla version) could get ported to other consoles, like maybe PS3 or Wii U, or my personal favorite, 3DS. Which, would kinda work, because spelunky is so hard its more like one of those little hard ass platformers you can waste your time on. Leave yo suggestions and thoughts below!

Since the PC version is based on Game Maker, I'm guessing putting that on a console won't really fly. By far the easiest port, I would think, would be XBLA to PC, since an Xbox is really a PC at heart anyway. I don't honestly know exactly how involved a port to another console would be, but I'm guessing it would be a substantial effort.

Or maybe to the PS4, as that's based on the 86x architecture (ie, the ones computers used).

Lets discuss that in another thread, i.e. debate or offtopic.

Didn't know that, but yeah, I geuss they could put on PS4, but if they ported it they would port XBLA version, but I'm still waiting to be able to play spelunky at the mall Tongue

I think that's just so you can port your scores to a different system though.

With the new version of Gamemaker having an emphasis on smart phone and pad stuff, there may be a way to port it to 3DS or something....I really have no idea, just taking a wild stab really. Well, it could at least go to an iPhone/Pad anyway, I'm sure you guys have those dohickeys right?

I feel like a complete jerk quoting myself, but it's still valid.
