Edge-Online: "Sam Lake, lead writer for Alan Wake, has told us that Remedy is currently focusing all of its efforts on development of the Xbox 360 version of the game, and that it's committed to hitting its spring 2010 release date."
Now PC is a good idea. This game looks really fun, should be a good experience.
Huh...? I submitted this article yesterday (the first to do so) and it got to like 350degrees, now its failed approval as a duplicate story (it wasn't) and this pops up? and I used a better picture... ;) Whats that about...?
Well since Microsoft's platforms are the Xbox 360 AND the PC...most of their games go to PC as well. So what's wrong with saving $200+ dollars and buying it on my PC instead? After all, as long as you do have a good computer, it would be the same experience.
Or the game is showing itself so good that PC gamers can't handle wait or it's its marketing crew who is making a hell of a job, but I can't hear anymore about this silly "alan wake on pc in up in the air".. if the "game dev team" can't decide about this I don't think they can make a *very good* game after all. Decide about it already..
From what I have seen this game could get quite some hardware sold... its good, no question about that... that being said Microsoft would profit more if the game does not release on their other platform PC-Windows (do they even earn anything other than software license on windows)... Am sure they wont stop it from coming on the PC, but it might be a timed exclusive
seriously im trying to find a reason to buy a 360 but if all good 360 games keep going to PC, whats the point? but alan wake on PC..not a bad idea but chill a lil
If you have a gaming pc then i understand why you feel no need for a 360. But if you mean in general then I'm sure there are alot 360 owners who don't own a gaming pc or like to game on PC.
after some time that is. Pc is an easy port from the 360. I know a lot of pc gamers that would enjoy it. I'm betting 6 to 9 months after the 360 release.
The game has been developed for the PC from the start. In fact, everything they've shown from the game was from the PC version until E3.
how did this get approved? they already had that news today. as far as I wont be affected by this since I shall be buying this on xbox360. The PC version will come out a few months after xbox360.
Remedy is being stupid about this. Their entire fanbase is on the PC, and now they're screwing us in the rear by delaying a game that was originally planned as a DirectX 10 showcase game.
their entire fanbase is on the PC lol. you wished
Hello? Max Payne? Remedy only developed the PC version and the console versions were third party ports that weren't nearly as popular.
absolutely the game should be on pc.
I wish Remedy would go back to getting published by Rockstar. I really hate Microsoft these days. I'm also not too fond of Sony considering they invented SecuROM.
Oh no... The 360 fans have come to my comment spraying me with disagrees! What will I do?!
Come with me ill save you . *runs away like scout*
It's too late for me! Too many disagrees weighing me down... Save yourself!
It`s never too late Like heavy says "Disagreers are BABIES!!! " rofl
Pandamobile - 2 hours ago "Hello? Max Payne? Remedy only developed the PC version and the console versions were third party ports that weren't nearly as popular." real facts Max Payne was well-received by critics with the PC and Xbox versions both scoring 89% on Metacritic. The PlayStation 2 version suffered from reduced detail and occasional slowdowns.While reviews for the version were not as good as the reviews for the PC and Xbox versions, its reviews were still positive. as of today: Max Payne PC : 86% Meta (the one I have all scratched up now though) Max Payne Xbox : 84% Meta Max payne PS2: 73 % Meta Why Can't Alan wake do good on Xbox360? If earlier Remedy games did good on the orginal Xbox? you tell me that without the BS crap. and yeah all this smells like hate coming from you. give it up
Remedy didn't make Max Payne 1 or 2 on the consoles. They may have been received well, but you don't associate Max Payne with the Xbox in the same way that you don't associate Halo with Windows. I didn't say Alan Wake wouldn't do well on 360, I just said that it's stupid for them to delay the PC version when there's hundreds of thousands of PC gamers anxiously waiting to play this.
Maybe Microsoft picked up on the idea that their 360 exclusives aren't as exclusive as they want it to be. Nevertheless, I am pretty certain this game will come out on PC, as Remedy is probably more fond of how graphically well the PC version of the gaming was coming out. I certainly was. You guys need to understand that during early tech demos the devs were talking about how the game was taking full advantage of the quad core PC architecture, so having it ported to the 360 requires a lot of optimization to the 360s tri-core architecture. One less core means that Remedy has to pump out as much juice as they can from the 360 in order to make the game look awesome.
They would make money from both the 360 and PC. Plus to reply to some above who think that everyone would rather play the PC version than the 360 version, just want to say your insanely stupid. Console games sell tenfold over PC games. I myself havent played a PC game since counterstrike, I just prefer a controller and a system that I dont have to make an upgrade to every six months in order to play the next batch of games. Consoles are pretty mush a one time investment that i dont have to do anything to and the games will upgrade by themselves as time goes on due to better development technology.
Wow. It was originally for PC and now they don't even have any plans for the Pc version? Remarkable.
I just want a damn game that will support quad core!
Alan Wake was planned for Windows and the 360. Remedy showing off their new game engine on the latest PC hardware in 2005 with tech demos doesn't mean a thing, how is that proof of release plans or platform development strategies. When developers show off games early on its always console code from the PC. Doesn't matter the game looks much better now compared to what was shown in 2005-2006 and even in 2008.
Does anybody know why this same article was posted before this one and was deleted and this one was approved.
yeah I said that in one of my comments above. I dont understand why they approved this? it's like they are approving this to stir more trouble here.
Well theyv taken out the free roaming and i wonder how much else they have changed. unless the game suprisses me i dont think ill be buying it when its out its been talked about for soo long i just couldnt care anymore
I was going to get this for my pc, but seeing as how it's getting whittled down to a shell of it's former self i may not even care when this comes out.
