    So with more and more console-only-titles there's less and less need for windows.

    I like my 360. My PC and 360 are hooked to the same TV. I play games on the mediums I prefer: FPS on the PC as much as possible, pretty much everything else on Xbox. (Though I do have a controller for my PC too.) So I don't see the big deal. Why not just buy an Xbox Arcade for $200? Surely its the same as upgrading a GPU anymore.

    And before you whine about consolfication killing PC gaming-- get over it. Atari and Nintendo were around ages before PC gaming came into any reasonable existence. Even then we're talking Oregon Trail. Everything might not be Ninten-hard anymore, but there's two main reasons for that:

    A) Video Games have gone mainstream. There are going to be more games marketed to more audiences. Surely you don't like every movie to hit the theaters. Same with games. For everyone who hates Guitar Hero/Rock Band -- 40 people love it. Just because it isn't your thing doesn't mean its BAD. Not everything has been over-simplified.

    B) Our expectations have risen. Just because there's a lot of fodder out there doesn't mean there aren't gems too.

    Typical console BS, its a marking ploy. If they blame piracy, its just the typical shenanigans.

    Well as I play both my PC and my Xbox360 through the same monitor on the same desk I had better not buy this title just in case I find it too "intimate" in that environment?...Well done guys another sale lost because of lame excuses for not supporting the original and greatest gaming platform....the PC.

    I had stopped giving a rat's **** about A.Sleep anyhow, but seriously... "intimacy issues"? Can you seriously come up with anything more daft than that?

    Or in other words, "PC users are more discerning and will spot the game's deficiencies in a flash"

    kinda funny how Intel chose to use this game to promote quad core gaming - remember one core for physics etc.. Btw, on the subject of Intel and pc gaming, what the hell happened to Intel's amazing looking Project Offset?

    Apparently, many are commenting on how in the years since that initial Intel demo, Alan wake has lost its graphical "wow factor" over successive trailers and screenshots . No doubt regressing as the lower tech limitations (esp. vram , gpu) of the console started to really impinge on the artists creativity while they try to keep fps up.

    Sadly this is part of a huge, game studio wide trend at the mo, to the point where Nvidia and Ati might have to get their feet wet and become actual game developers or subsidise production more if they want to shift their HW. Recent examples include Bioshock 2- no graphical improvement, Dead space 2 cancelled on PC. Cries of "console port" are being heard everywhere with every new release it seems.

    So basically they're telling us how we're supposed to enjoy the game and that our own personal tastes are wrong if we prefer playing it on the PC with a mouse/keyboard combination on a 1920*1200 monitor? Well, I'm not surprised at Microsoft's ability to be condescending to their customer base.

    *ptooey*

    Well, I hope the game fails spectacularly. I had half given up on it already, but still had some hope for a later release a few months down the line, but this news ends all that. Fingers crossed for poor reviews and sales just to annoy them all.
