I found it on Neowin forum that a German site ConsoleWars reporting Gears of War will be released for the PC, it will be for Windows Vista only accorded to a Microsoft Switzerland release list.

At least AthlonXP posted a link, rather than just saying "believe me, it's coming to PC".

Many people have claimed it coming to PC prior to your post... Look up my comments about it being played infront of us on a PC at E3 2004. We all know its coming... just no "confirmed" information.

At E3 it ran really nice on a 6800U SLi at high resolutions with what looked like max settings.

high res, in what terms?

1680x1050? 1920x1080? 800x600?

Well I guess if UT07 is out before then we can sort of get an idea of how Gears of War will run on PC. Whether it will get some graphical upgrades....i won't get my hopes up but you never know.

Don't know but it was on a 50" widescreen (maybe smaller)... guessing atmost 1920x1080.

Yay. So no need for me to buy another 360 to replace the dead one. I hope they have some new gameplay features when it comes out on the pc.

is the story of gears of war related to the unreal storyline?

Nope.

A little update :
The latest PCGamer Holiday 2006 issue features a 9 page article about Windows Vista, and Microsoft's recent push for PC gaming with its Games for Windows initiative. The article talks about what Microsoft plans to do for the near future, an interview with Peter Moore, but most interestingly is a photo of a Games for Windows promo kiosk (similar to the current PS3/Wii stuff). The kiosk to promote PC games has a display with various titles on it like Flight Sim X, Age of Empires III, Rise of Nations, ShadowRun, and Halo 2, but most importantly ... Gears of War, complete with Games for Windows logo/boxcover.

It was probably 1280x1024 or 1600x1200. It was on 2x 6800 Ultras in SLI mode.

It cauld have given a graphics face lift since then probably...to match with todays hardware like 8800GTX SLI rigs -.-..it probably had console graphics settings :captnkill:

An article in the latest PC Gamer issue showed a photo of a promo kiosk featuring a Gears of War Games for Windows retail box, indicating a port might be in the works. Now Microsoft, usually not commenting on rumors, issued a short statement that this is not confirmed, but merely a mistake by the artist as one of the MGS titles used as examples to show what their retail setup would look like. Still, no confirmation does not mean it is not true ...

I was just at a Micro Center today where they had Gears of War hooked up to a 42" Plasma, honestly the engine is probably good with all of its polygons, BUT the game...sucks.

Nothing new in the gameplay, the graphics themselves aren't good, all the colors are bland, the same, and jaggies (though this is mostly due to the xbox).

Overall not that good :/
