The absence of the Xbox 360 and PC "psychological action thriller" Alan Wake from this year's E3 is a bad sign for a game that some believe may never see the light of day.
I really expected to hear something about alan wake at e3 because they hyped the crap out of it in 06' I hope its not a bad sign even though I dont own a 360, this games premise looks good.
I was hoping for this game to make an appearance at E3. Hopefully they'll show it soon before people just forget about the game.
The game announcment tab on XBL in the E3 page is still blank you can't even access the tab; matter of fact it is still at "comming soon" status lol. Lets just wait MSFT probably wants to go out with a bang.
LOL look at the dissagree's from the PS3 fanboy losers trolling in here lol. I'm looking right at the god dam E3 page on XBL most of the content bars are not even activated yet lol. Alot of the show is most likely embargo/private.
Lol look at you, talking to yourself how pathetic.
power of green... you mean Power of BULLSH*T
"Power of BULLSH*T" bubbles up for surfman OMG i never laughed so hard HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHhAHAHAHA HHAHAhaHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA H AHAHAHAHAAAHAHAAh how about POWER OF FAIL
Well one thing i dont blame them for wanting to show games coming out this year but should least showed maybe a new trailer to remind people it is still alive and kicking and maybe a release window for next year? Dont forget many games get announced and forgotten like look at Duke Nukem Forever over a decade in development and recently we got some gameplay footage of it.... so seems like that is still alive as well give it time... it might be worth the wait in the end
The weird thing about Duke Nukem is that it has gained fame by not coming out. I've seen so many screenshots of that game over the years that I'm not even sure what it's supposed to look like now.
That's so true about Duke Nukem. For anyone old enough here that bought Duke Nukem 3D when it came out, the CD version had screenshots of Duke Nukem Forever in a bonus folder of the disc. There was also screenshots of Blood and Prey on it too :)
According to the FF interviews, the 360 version will BEGIN development when it's released in the US on the PS3. Reread the interview about the games development process and he mentions the 360's development will begin when the game begins its localization in the US/EU for the PS3. Then grab a dictionary and look up the word localization. Pay specific attention to the intransitive definition. http://multiplayerblog.mtv.... http://www.merriam-webster.... There's a link to the article and to the definition of the word. Hashimoto's statement describing the difference in the release timeframes is an answer to this question: What’s the development process for the game? Edit: This was supposed to be in reply to 4.6 foodbox
Has anybody ever seen *PW* post good 360 news?. Seems like he's a POS anti MSFT loser always looking to troll for bad 360 news. Could be wrong.
Alan Wait Forever not at E3, oh my what a surprise! @ Below, Final Fantasy is coming to the Xbox..... 2 years later and a 5 disc DVD collection.
Final Fantasy is coming to the xbox.
FF13 is coming to the 360 but Alan Wake isn't coming at all.Oh well
Before or after NextBox release? MS will maintain 360 around time enough? Will it come with a 12 disks bag/organizer with FF logo in it? Can I have one one those sword keychains of JP Collector's Editions? Can I have FF VII Advent Child complete with it? Can we go back to Alan Wake now? I believe mods will desire a new tool to move this post over to open zone in 5... 4... 3... 2... 1...

Is that the argument now? If something negative get's spun about the 360, now all that needs to be said is "FFXIII is coming to Xbox"? That's a shaky argument since it's only coming to Xbox 360 in English speaking regions baring Japan from getting it on the 360. It might have helped sell consoles but knowing that it will not sell huge numbers here in the States and more in Japan is not much of an incentive to throw that silly argument around. Stop being a fanboy Breakfast and grow up.
"2 years later and a 5 disc DVD collection." It will come out at the same time as teh PS3 Version in EU & NA. and, the Fall update (included with the New Xbox Experience (NXE)) will allow game-caching -- multi-disc games is a dead issue. You're going to have to find more emty-lies, your old material is outdated and just too obviously stupid (wrong) to take seriously. Do I smell a touch of fear and desperation? Final Fantasy XIII on Xbox 360 in EU and NA is a **MASSIVE** coup for MS. Good work MS. The Xbox 360 *rules* (W&J)RPG gaming.
I know E3 is no longer the circus it used to be, so this is not the best place to look on new games or games that are still early in development... But for sure, this is not the case for Alan Wake. If they could show Gears 2 and Fable 2, why not show it? Here hoping it's not being canned as some rumour some time a go on the internet was talking about. But I would not be surprised if this is the case.
Microsoft promised they would never cancel any of their games! They'll just....not talk about a release date or say anything more about an unreleased game LOL...
I'm surprised we have no new info on this game.
You're a sad person POG. Wasted three bubbles talking to yourself.
LOL! nailed it!
Thats right Besides,I hope Microsoft finishes this game.It will be the best game the 360 will ever have.
It looks too much like Alone in the dark to me.
it's gonna be in TGS 08 "Let the games begin with a trip to Finland to be digitally mastered into Alan Wake’s world, then jet off to Tokyo to the 2008 Tokyo Games Show to be on the scene and on the screen!" Link : http://specials.uk.msn.com/...
Why would they waste there time at TGS showing that? M$ has only sold 600,000 Firestarter 360 since 2005 there. The Japanese do not like the Firestarter 360 plan and simple.
This is turning into another BC where you hear about it for so long and the freaking thing never comes out. I hope I'm wrong and they show something at XO8 because this is my most anticipated game for 360.
I still don't know what to think of this game, cause I haven't heard much from it. All I know is that when they don't show much of a game, that not very good news. Too Human even showed more than Alan Wake, and it's looking like Too Human is gonna flop from the latest I have heard. Not good.
the game was hyped but my guess, its also going to the ps3
Isn't MS publishing it?
is a little noxious, pardon the pun. First, who says this game's coming at all? Secondly, even if it is, the game is currently being published by Microsoft Game Studios. But, don't stop dreaming on my account. From now on, let's just say that all games are going multiplatform. Capish? Here's a link. http://xbox360.ign.com/obje...
Alan Wake is being published by Microsoft, so it has no chance of coming to the PS3.
Alan Wake isn't coming until next year obviously.... probably mid-late 2009. A Teaser Trailer for Alan Wake like God of War 3 should have been at E3 at least because that way Microsoft could ensure the fans that the game is still coming....maybe Microsoft should just save Alan Wake as their launch title for the Xbox 720. I think that Splinter Cell Conviction is another 360 title that seems to be in the same situation as Alan Wake and the rumors point to that game being released late 2009- early 2010.
They probably just canceled it. No reason to create a game no one wants.
my guess is since it isn't coming out till next year and MS primary focus was fall 2008 why overshadow current products in favor of hyping something months away, the concentration is always the fall and the holiday market so if this game is coming i don't expect anything about it until fall or later, same with the new bungie announcement..my guess is that got canned in favor of current products as opposed to next years as for splinter cell that seems to be a whole different story, that got pushed waaay back because it apparently sucked
I was really looking forward to this game. The premise is so tempting! I LOVE IT!
Be patient Leon im sure MS is waiting to announce this game at a dedicated MS conference sometime in the future. Im sure the new halo game will be announced at the same time.
Sony is gonna annonces that they steals Alan Wake for the PS3. Microsoft like to steal, Sony will do the same. Even if i don't give a sh*t of this Alan Wake, anything is good against the Micro$uck.
umm ... they can't do that Microsoft is publishing this game sorry
They'll buy Microsoft and burn it down.
ffxiii will come out 360 before Alan Wake LoL
Its probably due to the fact that its got another year left in its production, its not Sony we are talking about you keeps on showing games 4 years before and everyday until its made. There was no Sign of Halo Wars or the PJ halo project either, does that mean its not a good sign? granted it would have been nice to see some updates but with no official cancellation or any whispers sugeesting the fact that it wasnt at E3 dont mean Jack
...Heavy Rain, The Getaway 2, and 2 Days 2 Vegas are never coming out either. What an idiot. :o No news, simply means the dev is working too hard on the game, to be bothered with creating trailers or demos, or presentations for a conference. Remedy is a VERY small studio.
Actually you're right, Getaway 2 (Getaway 3, in fact) isn't coming out, it got cancelled, maybe you heard?
this game isnt cancelled
the same FF13 trailer, it is coming out, but since they haven't shown anything of alan wake in a little while it is canned. Great logic.
Another game limited by dvd 9. Alan waste.
Alan is totally down the toilet. Microsoft, you really need to think ahead. The future doesn't just kiss you in the A$$ and benefit you for the first 2 1/2 years.
Its kinda odd why they didn't show Alan Awake. I mean its been in development for ages now, and by that time, you can atleast show a small tech demo, say hey look at this is whats going on. But nothing. One more thing to notice is that there was no mention of SplinterCell Conviction. Guess the rumor of it going back to drawing board was true. What about Warhound? It was cool looking game. No mention of that too. May be Microsoft will show these games X08, if its happening that is.
I keep here about this 'much anticipated game', but I don't know anything about it. I can't find many who do. How can so many look forward to this game without even knowing much about it. Either way, it seem to disappoint quite a few people? Hopefully it comes out sooner than later, for the sake of the 360's anorexic line-up.
It adds up. Both of these games have the same slant and both of them are no where to be seen.
A lot of games were absent. E3 is just not like it used to be.
It's not gone. I talked to a Remedy representative a few months ago at the nordic game conference. She told me that they had been having a media blackout on purpose and would be unveiling new trailers and info in the coming months. I thought that meant E3 but I was wrong. Not worried though.
Of course your not worried. No one with a brain is worried. The Sony Defence Force is simply whipping up some FUD about Alan Wake. This forum is filled with all kinds of useless nonsense -- people who *DONT HAVE A CLUE* talking like they're industry insiders/analysts. Its just pathetic. Alan Wake is in development. It will be released. It has many gamers excited (including me). And MS will release info according to its own marketing/PR plans. I'm not "bothered" about it not appearing at E3 at all. There are MANY other conferences yet this year.
*drum roll* aaaahhhhhvvvvVVVVAPORWARE!!!
POG is getting less and less bubbles, infact all the xbots are, you know why? slowly but surely where driving the xbots away WHERE WINNING! keep it up guys soon enough this place will be 100% PS3fanboy friendly zone :)
If a game isn't shown, it's either the Publisher or the Developer's decision. The game is in development and coming. This is just another case of Heavy Rain. Not until they get it to the point where they think it'll Shock and Awe people, they aren't going to release anything. And besides, wouldn't you guys rather have it that way?
Prolly a trailer due for GC. I don't think its been canned considering the huge amount of devtime and money it ate up already. For better or worse it will be released.
I'm not too worried.
Sorry, but as much as I would like to see this title, I can't see it hitting store shelves anytime soon.
I'm finnish like the company making the game, and i read from a finnish gaming magazine that they are indeed having a media blackout, because they want to concentrate on finishing the game. So trust me, it's coming. And i'm a ps3 fan lol, i couldn't care less if it was cancelled. So, yeah, take it from me.
Alan is not aWAKE. Hes DEAAAAAAD. NOOOOOOOOOOO
... launch title. You heard it here first.
@Thisiswaiting "You heard it here first" Yeah, because that has *0%*-chance of happening. The reason you said it first is because it is just RIDICULOUS to say. Congradulations, you've made the regular Sony Defence Force idiots look rational, you've gone **WAY** off into crazy-land. Good work.
I dont think its that crazy a thought ... it would make a great launch title and would more then likely be better on the next gen system then the current.
hey you know what else i have heard about at e3,,, where is huxley?
Man You ps3 fanboys still pissed off about FFXIII going to the 360 dont blame microsoft blame square
This game could be another Alone in the Dark, by that I mean the game has really nice graphcics and a great setting but fails to execute.
