Alan Wake to be a 360, PC exclusive

The anticipated mystery-of-a-mystery game Alan Wake has just been confirmed to be an exclusive for the Xbox 360 and PC (Vista is being pushed here).

"The Microsoft connection will also set limits to the Remedy games. Alan Wake will require either the Windows Vista operating system or Microsoft's Xbox 360 gaming console as its platform. The game will not be translated for other consoles. Myllyrinne does not see this as a hindrance. The fact that the game does not have to be translated to all different platforms will simplify and speed up its production."

NOT! after GDC the rest of the developers will be let into Sony's world and we'll see what stays where by the time Alan Wake comes out, Microsoft is going to need all the help it can get. Wow if you knew what I knew then you'd be looking at your 360 like me and thinking the next generation starts when Sony says so...

your again a total idiot practically same post in a different section. Go suck some balls loser. Quit being such a idiot cause you don't have a PS yet, I have both, and the PS gets stared at ALOT more than the 360, resistance is the only good game.

TheMART3819d ago

Right

First: you don't own a 360.
Because if you did, you would love it.

Second: you are a scared Freaking Fony Fanboy on the run. Because you're afraid, you make dumb posts like this.

Third: intimidating, isn't it. All these great looking exclusives on consoles only on 360. Man you're missing out heavily with a retarded PS3 and it's crippled free online service.

How many games without any online features must you get before you see that free = sh!t and premium cost some money? Virtua Tennis 3, Tony Hawk? Or UT3 where PC/360 will play against each other, but PS3 isn't???

WOW, if only we knew what you knew. You must work for Sony right? lmfao...Your nothing but a delusional fanboy trying to justify your $600 investment and no games to play on your PS3 except for Resistance.

Alan Wake is definitely geared more for the mature crowd. Alan Wake wouldn't sell well for the ps3 since they consist more of 18 and under crowd. 2008 is a long time from now and I really want this game! I just love the fact that the 360 keeps bringing us new franchises.

PS360PCROCKS3819d ago

agreed. Me to, this game has probably the most realistic effects and graphics I have seen. The story seems soo interesting, I can't wait either. Since they first showed it at e3 05

SimmoUK3819d ago

Your in a no lose situation like me then good for you, I already have a 360 but what is inline for GDC will make 360 and Wii obselete mark my words you heard it from me first. Roll on March...

PS360PCROCKS3819d ago

yes yes like I said before didn't you hear that Microsoft quit gaming today? They gave up because their scared of what might happen, someone read your post and said "Fuc* it were done for"

UrbanJabroni3819d ago (Edited 3819d ago )

Finally we have someone with the balls to put their opinion on the line by ending a sentence with "mark my words" when they give absolutely no facts nor even the slightest semblance of a cohesive argument.

Bravo. Bravo indeed.

UrbanJabroni3819d ago

Having gone to the GDC every single year since its inception, maybe you can shed some light on this amazing news so the rest of us going can be sure to know what we will be seeing?

Oh, you mean you aren't attending? You mean you are actually a teenager on a message board with no inside information to share with the big boys on this site who actually put bread on the table by making games?

Seriously, I'm sure you are a cool guy, but the trolling is getting old. Why risk your bubbles?

richie007bond3819d ago

Roll on till march when we rip your deluded comments apart and pull out that sony rat thats been wedged up your a@@ for so long

18 and under crowd wow are you real Playstation has always been 18 plus, infact it was the first gaming console to target the older audience, GDC07 "Sony shares first party secrets" I can't wait there going to do alot more than just that :)

nambo3819d ago

Maybe he was referring to how old PS3 fans act. It's obvious by your comments and grammar that you're either a 5 year old or mentally challenged adult.

"Wow if you knew what I knew then you'd be looking at your 360 like me and thinking the next generation starts when Sony says so... "

Grow up. If you have a 360, what's your gamer tag and if you hate it so much, why don't you sell it? You could use the money from the sale of the 360 you don't have to buy your beloved PS3 you won't be getting.

SimmoUK3819d ago (Edited 3819d ago )

Why do you think Microsoft are advertising Mass Effect already when it's not even due out till the end of the year, Microsoft are nervous because Sony's inhouse are being so quite and they have every right to be from what's trickling in to me. From what i've been told today Microsoft have been set up hook line and sinker, I can't say to much but other websites are just beginning to get the tail of things now. I might be able to answer certain questions tho...

LOL NO SORRY YOUR THE FUNNY ONES...

I've used my post quota but check this out:

"I can tell you we have 30GB versions here today and we copied two versions to each of those PCs, so by the end of it we had about a terabyte of copies over there. So we've got to get smaller - big is cool, it lets you have more environment diversity and stuff like that"

"Chou also states that the team collected a hell of a lot of data for all the tracks, so that the tracks will be more true to the real tracks, and make for a much better overall experience for race fans. So much data in fact that they wouldn’t be able to squeeze it all onto one disc.

This leads us on to DLC content. Yes, tracks will be made available after the release of Forza 2, the ones they couldn’t fit on the disc initially. So although the 12 environments may sound a little disappointing in terms of volume of content, that will increase. Whether you will have to pay hasn’t been decided yet, and whether you want to pay or not is entirely your decision. Cars too are also planned to be released as DLC, again pricing hasn’t been decided. If the new achievement guidelines are anything to go by, buying new tracks may just net you an extra 250 Gamerpoints for you to unlock."

Of course this won't get posted here because it's xbox fan central but even the most hardened xbox fans admit THEY WERE WRONGE ABOUT THE SPACE ISSUE at other forums but no here everyone just stays oblivious...

OH COME ON I do own a 360 give me a break Sony could have wiped the floor with it if they had released at the same time on brand name alone, but they waited on for better technology, it's going to show at GDC LOL can't wait! :)

PS360PCROCKS3819d ago

haha ok yes Sony is playing a "game" and baiting Microsoft "Hook line and sinker" what the hell are you talking about. Microsoft does the same thing it does everyday go out and make games, try and secure more games, try and steal games that were once exclusive. I guess Sony's strategy is to launch late, not sell much, and lose all their exclusives that's how Microsoft is getting baited? Also where do you see Mass Effect getting hyped? their screens every once and a while, your so lame. Also this game is mid-year not end of year and it's from a fantastic developer. Ever think that it's getting alot of hype cause Microsoft has seen it and it truly is exceptional? GOW anyone? I already posted that the good 2007 line-up is for the 360 so get over it.

UrbanJabroni3819d ago

Every time people click it, you get feedback which eventually removes your speech bubbles.

Do you think coming to a post ONLY on the 360 side and trolling with asinine and baseless comments is going to, MAYBE, eventually cost you all your bubbles?

In case the sites revamp didn't get the message out to everyone, IT IS TIME TO GROW UP!

Of course, some fanboys would rather have their one lowly bubble than actually begin to talk like an intelligent human being.

"Why do you think Microsoft are advertising Mass Effect already when it's not even due out till the end of the year, Microsoft are nervous because Sony's inhouse are being so quite and they have every right to be from what's trickling in to me."

Well I want to know why did Sony advertise GT4 with a picture from pgr3? Why did they show us killzone 2 and claim it was real when it clearly was not? Why hype up the online service and give us something so broken? Why are they losing exclusives and why isn't it better than the 360 which it is supposed to be since it's $200 more expensive with all this cutting edge technology. Sony is keeping quiet because when they speak it's usually bad for them.
