That's just too bad :( I didn't even know that Beyond Good and Evil 2 was still being developed... I thought it had gone into development hell... I hope that Michel Ancel's departure doesn't mean to Beyond Good and Evil 2 whatever it is that Matthew Armstrong's departure from Gearbox meant to Borderlands 3 :unsure:

Recently started to play Beyond good and Evil, I had to stop cauz UcantPlay client won't download anything from server!
Honestly Ubisoft with such shitty client should rather pay ME to use their service...

Actually, it'll be a prequel.

I also didn't play that game yet, and hope there will be a PS3 port to PS5 (as a surprise along with bg&e2).
or at least a way to play the PS3 remake on PS4/PS5 (it's not even on PSNow!).

JUST PLAY IT! later I resolved the problem by having another PC to download the game then transferred to my rig and it worked!

Unfortunately the pc one wasn't designed to run on modern OS, it's very broken: the graphic is 4:3 only, game engine supports uncapped FPS but it runs slowly at 20-30, and there's no way to configure controller's right analog's sensitivity (essential for photographer mode).

B&E has HD port for x360/ps3, i later got it for ps3 or u rather play it on Virtual machine.

I don't play on PC, and don't have any games not gaming plateform (steam/etc.) exactly for the reason you mentioned ! (you spend more time fixing your setup than actually playing)
I play only on console, I do have the HD remake on PS+ but no PS3, I hoped PS5 would be compatible with "all your already owned PS+ games" but nope, false advertising from Sony.
I could try to play it on GC emulator, but would prefer the HD remake. or just wait for the release of the game on PS5 and pray for the included HD remake to be included :D

Very interesting observation... Unfortunately, more often than not, is the case in which a player doesn't even realize that there's a great game tailored just for him/her, just sitting there beyond the curtains of a client or a game store that failed to represent the true spirit and nature of the developers within.... kinda like when you miss a great movie when they hire the wrong guy to edit the trailer :wink:
