Exactly. But nowadays, producers don't care much about the opinion of loyal fans of the series. They care about the expectation of new generations young console gamers. DX is the example of the game that will suffer terribly from the "consolisation".

It's not even the question of simplified interface / skill system and such. DX was a very mature game, not in terms of adult contents, but in terms of general questions posed by the game - the conversation with the bartender in Hong Kong about the weakness of democracy is a memorable example. There is little hope that someone will try to create such a deep atmoshpere in a mass-market console product.

The original DX looked like a FPS, but it was not (you could finish entire game without firing a single bullet). The DX3 would probably look like DX-clone at first, but sadly, it would probalby be a simple cyber-punk theme FPS…
