1. It will get more marketing through the dashboard.
2. The first wasn't really that good.

everyone will feel differently about this game. I got it from amazon as a digital download card for only $3.00 (yup, $3.00) and I think its great.

If they want to make a sequel that ties in as extra chapters or an expansion pack to the first then I'm cool with that. It prob wont cost me $3 though but after playing the first it is worth the price of admission.

Alan Wake is a great game IMO. It's a bit disappointing compared to what we were expecting, but I think Remedy did a good job with the 360 version. The game might've been more on PC, but we will never know.

It's such a shame that this could of been an excellent new IP for gamers. Only in the end to be beaten down by corporate product placement main stream shooter flames. I hope it can still be saved but it would need a total reboot.

I still feel the idea is great but the initial execution leaves me wondering how and where it went all wrong.

I hope Remedy can remedy the fallen situation for AW2.

It was a great game, in my opinion. Looked great, amazing story, good characters. The plot is still pretty good, especially since it actually tried. It seems many games nowadays just slap on a generic story.

This is just lame speculation. It's not news.

Next time try actually interviewing someone who works at Remedy and ASKING THEM WHY ITS DOWNLOADABLE like an actual journalist would.
