1 game - several platforms

Post by Flipvitty » Mon May 20, 2019 4:07 pm

I wonder if it is possible to add several consoles to a single game. It would drastically remove quite a lot of clutter and us (community) wouldn't have to basically dublicate games just to show all the platforms. Thank you.

One of the biggest issues with that is that many fields don't agree across platforms.

For example: release date. Obviously Mario Bros. has been released multiple times over the last 20 years
Overview: Features change, graphics get updated, new modes are added, etc...
Publisher/Developer: Often changes amongst releases, especially for older games

Sometimes one game is released for multiple consoles but is a completely different game: Aladdin (SNES/Genesis)
