    I call bull.
    A lot of PC versions come later for the simple reason that they would rather you bought the console version. They make more money that way from the people (like myself) who own a PC and a console.

    Same. I'm in no hurry to play it, but I'm suspecting this strategy is used to reduce the impact of piracy.

    Im thinking this is a piracy thing, the game has enough hype to sell bucket loads inspite of this so they would rather force people to buy it on console instead of being able to get their mirrors edge fix on a torrented PC version.

    typical move to try and force people to buy the console version, I hate consoels and everything stand for, people getting suckered by the corporations. Pc version will be the same, scaled back graphics, complexity and scale just because they have to make the console versions and PC the same, not fair.

    From Wikictionary:

    Adverb
    indefinitely

    For the time being
    For a long time, no end defined
    Forever


    Ok now I'm confused, how can one word mean "for the time being" and mean "forever"? I always read it as "without limits", i.e. infinite, but I guess I stand corrected. Looks like one of those words that can be misunderstood quite easilly.

    I wouldn't always rely on wiktionary. "Indefinite" means for not definite, i.e. in this case the delay is for a time which has not been defined. It could turn out to be forever, or it could mean a delay of a week. All it means is "we've delayed the release, but we're not telling you how long it is delayed."

    Well, this way I will have time to play through Fallout 3 two or three times before this comes out, so it's not that terrible.

    However, still...

    What makes the PC version "superior" beyond blatant PC fanboyism?

    Graphics, Mods, versatility, more control options (M/k or gamepad), better online capabilities. you can play how you want to. You can custoomize the experience to your liking on PC.
