Unzensiert und schön schockierend: Condemned
SEGA veröffentlicht berüchtigten Psychoschocker von Monolith Ab 31. März endlich auf PC!
Only found it on a German website so far, but it says that it retails on PC this March.

Considering it runs off the Fear engine, I suppose you could compare it to Fear and get a rough idea on the performance and visuals.

Yeah but MS might have slipped them acouple to pull off another "King Kong" trick by lowering the quality of the PC version to make the X360 look alot better.

here are a couple of videos and more info:

You are an FBI agent on the hunt in this gripping and sickening hunt for serial killers. The game is played in first-person perspective, and with the use of the Havok 3.0 physics engine and other advanced techniques, players can utilize anything in the area as a weapon when they've been cornered by their prey.

Haven't played it myself yet, demo is not available on the German Live marketplace, but i'll probably get the retail soon anyways. Heard lots of good stuff about it, it's supposed to be very short though.

Might wanna check out my review in the Console Forum. It was ok, but the gameplay is repeditive and kinda boring. Might just be me though . . .

Nice BS conspiracy theory.

What do you mean "supposed to look like"? In case YOU didn't know the PC version in stores is a port of the PS2 version.

Part of being a PC gamer is accepting the fact that console development is more lucrative as there are far more sales to be had. You can thank lamer PC game pirates for this. Every time you say "HEHEHEHEHHEHEHE I dDLOADED tEh NEWQ UAKE!!!!!!! HAHAHAHHAHAAHHA!!!!!" remember that.

Ya, pirates are the #1 reason that 90% of game sales are for consoles... it has nothing to do with the fact that a good console can be had for $100-$300 (as opposed to $1200 for a good gaming machine) and the games are very accessable and (usually) work without any hassle. And it couldnt possibly have anything to do with not needing to know a lot about hardware upgrades in order to make games work.

Yeah, its all those damned pirates' fault... ;)

Well if the PC games would have overall better quality it would not encourage people to download games. GO back 5 years and i was more then happy to buy all new games that got out. Now today most games just suck and any game just have what all other we have seen over the years.

Not to mention all the stupid protections against all thoose people who wanna buy games its no wonder the piracy is so high so its up to the game developers - make better games or suffer cause i share no pain with the developers releasing a bug game like for instance BF2 and then they will cry about..

If you notice even with rampant piracy all top quality PC game titles sell into the millions. Good quality=Good sales!

The standard PC version looks exactly the same as the standard console versions of the game. And it's not because PCs can't handle the "Gamer's Edition" of the game (which is actually a port of the Xbox 360 version, in this case were it NOT for a console version of a game, the PC version wouldn't have existed), it's because your AVERAGE PC is way too crappy to play it. If you don't like having PC games held back by low-end hardware, go replace every computer on the marketplace that's using integrated video and celeron processors. Until then, PC games will always be targeted at the low-end, and it doesn't make a bit of difference if there's a superior console version out for it or not.

I believe when a developer makes a PC game they do not need to pay royalities to anyone... so there is a plus.

No you didn't. You said the game is suppose to look like the downloadable version. No it's not. The one in the store's is suppose to look like the PS2 version. The downloable version is suppose to look like the 360 version. It's two completely different versions.

So to repeat what the great evilchris said, nice BS conspiracy theory.
