Additional details have now surfaced on the upcoming Alan Wake announcement.
So its just a chapter? What ever it is i can't freaking wait. One of my top 7 games.
Agreed, even if it is not number 2, this will hopefully be as god as the original game
I Loved Alan Wake so much I played it three times to get the full 1500 gamerscore. I could've easily played it a forth time. Any game release envolving Alan Wake is a day one buy for me.
I got disagrees when I said this earlier.....
Lmao, I can't help but laugh. I asked for it
Nooooo Why....I want a full retail game Well sorry but I think I'll pass...shame could of been a great franchise aswell
What's the difference if it's full retail or not? You can download full retail games on 360 already. Just because its dl only doesn't mean it will be anything less. ...hopefully.
"Just because its dl only doesn't mean it will be anything less." Really.....are you joking Course theres a difference, it means you can have a full retail game compared to a downloadable title which probably won't even last you for 4-5 hours. It will be short and at the end of the day it will just seem pointless. Theres a massive difference between a retail/downloadable title Do you think Uncharted 2 would of had so much content if it was a downloadable title.......nope.
you're comment is like saying "there's nothing wrong with a straight to DVD release for a movie, Alot of great movies are on DVD" it's not a confident move, and i hate to see it done to great games.
@Oblivion and GTA IV DLC would like to disagree with your comment... There is absolutely no reason why a DL game will be short or less than what a retail version could be Even more, the reason we are not getting a full retail release is because of lack of support for the 1st game, and your way to react to this is.....lack of support for this new game??? seriously??? is that how you expect them to make Alan Wake 2??
for the record ,for some comments below,Alan Wake was a below 3gb game..most dvd space taken by the cinematics,and it lasted for at least 10 hours..If you dont believe,check this http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... and for a 540p game was stellar,although i hope they raise resolution textures on this one
TheBlackMask. You obviously haven't played Shadow Complex. smh.
According to OXM, AW2 is being held back for the next Xbox.
I hope so. Thats one game that would make me buy a next gen xbox. I hope ms are doing that because this is one game that most everyone loved and got crazy praise, i think it was even time's goty. One of the best games ive ever played personally, its uncharted quality in the storytelling.
So when i go on xbox live and their Games on Demand section and see Enslaved, Crysis, Frontlines, crysis 2, Resident Evil 4 HD, Bulletstorm...you mean these games are half of what its suppose to be!?! The point i was making was a full game can be download only. There's nothing stopping it. And yes U2 would of had all the content if it was dl only. Why wouldn't it? Is there a sony restriction on how much a game content should have when its dl only? If there is i'm not aware of it.
Yeah they are in a way because you don't actually have that game as a pysical copy, you don't own it in a way and if anyone was going to buy them they would of done so. Fact is this isn't a retail game on XBLA, it's a downloadable title of Alan Wake meaning it probably won't be as special as what AW2 could of been
Get in, Alan Wake is one of my favorite 360 games. Didn't think this was going to happen after they didn't announce anything at E3.
womp womp womp...
Was just playing Alan Wake.
I just started playing the game and so far I'm disappointed. It feels like I'm playing a commercial due to the product placement. These are the worst energizer batteries known to man.
Hey, Energizer are the only batteries that will fend off monsters from the dark, so they have my vote.
This is a prime example of a game that's on the wrong platform. This game would have sold a million on PS3. But now it won't.
this game already sold a million, and who knows how many times it has been downloaded. besides when have sony fans bought any games.
the playstation has a higher attach rate of games per system. it's been heavily reported that ps3 owners buy more games for the ps3 than 360 owners. i love both systems but that is how it is, i worked for game crazy for years and had a way easy time talking people into game purchases for ps3 if its not halo,cod or gears most of 360 only gamer's will not take the risk of purchase on something new
millions? lol! you guys cant even sell half as much copies of bf3 as xbox did!!
Thats because ppl are buying UC3 you know exclusives. But I think a game in this genre wouldve sold better if it was developed for ps3 and released as an exclusive all fanboism aside. Its just a fact most 360 gamers buy strictly mainstream shooter games.
well even if its kinda of a fact that shooters tend to sell more on 360 than other genres, its not like the PS3 is a Cinderella story for many new IP's or even established IPs, Resistance 3 and Valkyria Chronicles quickly come to my mind as examples. Anyway my point is that there is no way to know if this game would have sold more on another console
@Hitman so what was the excuse for R3 - why did PS3 gamers buy Dead Island instead of R3? Let me guess all the PS3 gamers are waiting for UC3.
Alan Wake has sold about a million for 360. Not bad for a game that came out the same day as Red Dead Redemption IMO.
PS3 fanboys are hilarious.
The XBLA line for next year is looking amazing. MS should really consider spending more money on advertising for online titles, like some adds for TV, magazine ads, soda promotions. They got a couple potential million dollar sellers lined up
I really hope they are making shadow complex 2 for next year. i loved the first one it was my favorite DL game. I would buy SC2 ASAP if they would just make it.
Its being made. Just doesnt have a publisher. Might end up on PSN if Microsoft doesnt commit.
This is probably that Night Springs XBL deal. I'm sure we are in for more Alan Wake in the way of a sequel as well though. Microsoft paid quite a bit of money locking up 3 games from Remedy and I expect they will want their monies worth. Alan Wake is now well over 1 million units sold, which is a success. Also it has garnered all kinds of awards, even GOTY from Time Magazine. I believe a full, new retail release of Alan Wake 2 could sell between 2-5 million copies easily. Often times a game franchise wont hit it's stride until the sequel. So I have high expectations on anything with Alan Wake.
As long as it isn't more walking around in the woods I'll be happy. I really loved the game but my favorite parts became walking around the town itself or the power plant.
Personally I would have liked a full retail game, but I enjoyed Alan Wake so much. One of my favorite ever games. Who knows? Maybe the XBLA will have so much potential :)
Just download? But the original was Time Magazine's game of the year! What higher honor could there possibly be?! /sarcasm Hey, better than nothing. I was really playing for the story anyway. Can't wait to hear more.
Nice let's hope it comes out quicker and is better than the last game. Alan Wake was a good game, but I didn't find it scary at all. Hopefully they come up with a scarier premise this time around.
Hmm, I forgot I had the 1st game, never got around to finishing it cause I kept getting bored. By the way, I bought it for like $1.85 as a download from amazon...I guess I should go back to it at some point.
