    What!? Why Vista only? That's just dumb...

    I really need to play this, but there's no point in me upgrading to Vista - got a DX9 card, and XP runs very nicely, so sod it!

    f****** w******!

    Hmm, no Xbox & no plans to buy one, no Vista & no plans to get it until it's stable, has mature drivers, and at least SP1, - you're right - why did I read that? :D

    Sounds like a fun game, someday, maybe, I'll try it.

    agreed, however it obviously means that they're not shipping enough vista so they have to offer incentives

    I wouldn't be suprised if de-vista-ed copies start appearing on torrent soon either

    Geometry Wars was never a reason to buy a 360. I would not buy it even if I had Vista. If it came free with Vista I would uninstall it.

    I point and laugh at anyone who is upset the PC version is Vista Only

    i luv it. if i go to my buddy's house that's all i played even if he got 30+ games available... probably why he's mostly unavailable these days when i said i wanna come over... :p

    i do have Vista, but 4quids is.. .like $10CAD. Maybe ill buy it, maybe i dont. if i have a controller, id probably buy it. its a good game. but i just cant say id definitely buy it. i like the game tho... :)

    I would have thought they'd give this to 360 owners (who own the game in live arcade) this for free, based on the msn passport. Seems not though :(.

    Hmm, lets see, I own no consoles and I plan to upgrade to Vista in the year 2000-and-hell-freezes-over. I don't care how good it is, I've gone penguin and I plan to stay penguin!

    Grind wars is a geometry wars clone... and works on xp. I will not link to it (google is your best friend) because Bizarre productions has asked the creator to remove it, although it it still easy to find.

    Try it, it's cool !

    Hmm

    Ok well geometry wars maybe cool but why pay for it when you can get it free on xp. Google for Xwars and be happy.
