    Pretty much, I've personally lost interest but it's funny to see Microsoft pull the rug from under PC gamers. :rofl:

    I love how they say that some games are made to be played intimately on the PC.

    Isn't Alan Wake like a perfect intimate game? :bowrofl:

    You think so? I think it looks badass. Not worthy to buy a 360, but I wanted to play it on PC badly.

    his ps3 fanboism clouds his mind. But yeah it's a pretty weak excuse saying that it's better to play the game on a couch.

    The real reason is they forgot to design the cover for PC, then decided the cost making it was more then the expected profit from the PC version. :bowrofl:

    its been super hyped for the past 11ty years but besides hearing about it in posts like this and in passing on sites/mags its basically vaporware.

    Even though it looks cool, it'll probably flop.

    I have been under the allusion that it was console exclusive now for years.

    I think if you talk to PC gamers you will find that a fair number of them have consoles and have there gaming time split between games they prefer on consoles and games they prefer on PC's.

    So the Alan Wake news probably is not going to piss off the vast majority of them.

    Quick, name 4 things we will probably never see:

    1. Duke Nukem Forever
    2. Alan Wake
    3. GT5
    4. Black man in the white house.

    well that sucks

    I have an old gameinformer mag that has a several page spread about this game, but the magazine is like 5 years old or something. Screenshots from back then don't look any different than the ones that are out now.

    Sort of sounds like they are just lackadaisically making this game.

    I think the main reason for not making it on the PC is piracy issues. You can still pirate 360 games but it's more difficult. If the majority can't get it free then anyone who does want to play it will have to buy/rent it.

    This cant be true because 360 has no exlcusives

    I guarantee you Heavy Rain is better than Alan Wake.
