Yes same things here in UK on Sky One been showed PC games commercial for years, it still show until today. I remember watched the very first PC game MOHAA commercial when Star Trek: Enterprise episode started, during advert breaks and after end of credits. :)

They show it on the sci-fi channel a lot. The first time I saw it, I wasn't watching the TV but was listening to it. The commercial came on and I thought it sounded like a pretty good movie so I went into the room to see what it was. I was pretty surprised to see it was FEAR. They did a really good job with the commercial. I hope they start doing that a lot more.

I agree, I don't remember the last time I saw a PC only game commercial.

But I have been seeing the F.E.A.R. commercial pretty regularly over the past month or so.

Well if you count the little "PC CDROM" icon they show at the end of commercials when they list the platforms, then ive seen a lot of PC game commercials!.... even if they are mostly bad ports.

Yeah Ive seen it, I couldnt believe it when I actually heard "for PC Only" on a comercial... I didnt think PC Gamers watched TV :o

Yeah, I've seen some McDonalds ads to! :) Seriously, what's your point? Of course you saw a lot of Halo2 ads, it's a console game and one of the most heavily promoted games ever.

The point is a game that's still PC-exclusive is very surprising. My jaw dropped when it came on screen, can't recall the last PC TV game ad I've ever seen.

X3, GT Legends, Act of War, HL2 and even a pos game like B.O.S. had a TV commercial.

That FEAR commercial seems to play pretty often on cable TV channels. Even my friend who watches those cheesy late night sci-fi channel shows says that they've seen it a few times.

But it's far from the first PC game I've seen advertised, I remember seeing quite a few Diablo 2 commercials back when it was released even over the airwaves.

Does anyone know if there have been sales figures posted for F.E.A.R. I saw the top 5 list of PCGAMES selling lately with COD2 on top, but no mention of F.E.A.R
