Oh what a bullshut response from Atari in regards to lack of MP on the PC.
When asked by Big Download for a response, Atari sent along comments from Dan Irish, CEO of Threewave, the game's multiplayer developer. According to Irish, Threewave had intended to create multiplayer for both consoles and the PC, but eventually decided to focus on the console versions in order to keep the quality bar as high as possible. According to Irish, if the company had attempted to develop both the PC and console versions simultaneously, "something would have to suffer."
Wasn't MS's big thing about Windows Live was that it would make it easier to port from X360 network code to Windows?
