GoW2 coming to PC afterall?
 
Quote:

While Epic previously stated that GoW2 would not be coming to PC, a product page on this online retailer has details, a Games for Windows box cover and a Dec. 4, 2009, release date. When asked for a comment, Microsoft denied the listing.
*The website has the game listed for Dec. 4, 2010 (not 2009).

meh, Not interested. Didn't like the first one (tried it on the X360 and PC) don't think I will give the second one a shot.

Hmmm yeah its listed for 2010 in that wesbite and WP reported 2009 ... could be a typo although it makes more sense.

ugh, that's too far away. Almost 1.5 years from now on. By then GoW 3, Crysis 2, Diablo 3, Rage, SC2, MW2, CoD7, ST4, RE5, AC2, ME2 should be in our hands.

Yikes, that's not really even worth it IMO.

It's fake... Kotaku reported on it this morning. MS denied it and restated "GoW2 is not coming to PC."

I'm pretty sure they mean it this time, since Cliffy said it rather bluntly... "we are not doing it." Fake denials always have things like "at this time" after them.

just like when GOW showed up first in nvidia driver profiles, MS/Epic denied it and then few months ago they announced PC released?

just like that?

I don't recall them ever saying "we are never bringing GoW to PC, it's not going to happen, it's an Xbox game and only an Xbox game," which is what they have said about GoW2.

Combine the stronger language with the expressed dissapointment over GoW's PC sales and you have a recipe for never porting it.

I would be surprised if PC gets very many Xbox ports from MS at all from now on, including Halo 3 and others... their focus seems clear. Fable 2 is the only game I would guess will come eventually.

It bummed me out when Halo 2 for PC was announced for Vista only... cheap shot, yada blada.... so I definitely wouldn't expect Halo 3 for PC unless it's Vista only. Doesn't help me though seeing as I'm XP:(. It's a real bummer because 1 looks great and feels great (haven't started it yet, but from the 15-20 mins I put into it, I could understand what all the hype was about, feels like a solid/fun shooter for sure). I'd love to add 2 & 3 to my collection but what can I do... the XP hack for 2 sounds ridiculous and unreliable, and I'm way too noob to ever try something like that, plus it's illegal.

I hope Fable 2 gets ported for XP... one looks amazing (same deal, only 15+ mins of testing) and I'm sure it's gonna be a totally badass lil hacknslash RPG. Gorgeous lil engine too.


GoW... lol... (only tested for 15 mins, can force 4xAA through the driver thank god, runs great, looks amazing, bloody UT3 engine rules) I haven't been able to play this since late January of this year because of that silly bug it's got. I have no net at home, so haven't tried patching it... I 'think' I had to be online to install that one at a friends house, not sure. If it was necessary though, I'm sure one has to be online to bloody update it too.

GoW 2 for PC would be cool for a collector like me, but seeing as how Epic has taken the stance, "screw PC users because they're thieves", it won't kill me.... and seeing as how I've paid for every Epic product I own, it's a HUGE slap in my face... along with the countless other PC Gamers who have faithfully supported them over the years.

I think you are right, it looks like Microsoft's only goal is to destroy PC gaming no matter the cost.

I don't think MS is out to destroy PC gaming, it's just 360 makes more money and has a better image. I mean look. It's more accessible, fairly easy to create games for, big investment that has paid off and every time they do a PC port we whine and complain about it anyway and pirate the game. The only ones destroying PC gaming is PC gamers.
