The PC version is coming out two weeks later than the Xbox version because Microsoft snagged a deal with Ubi or Gearbox to get exclusive launch rights, in hopes that people waiting for the PC version will buy the Xbox instead, therefore making more money for Microsoft. Bastards. Right now, thousands of copies of the PC BIA are sitting in some facotry somewhere waiting to be shipped to stores. Stupid, Stupid decision in my mind. The least Gearbox can do is give us a demo.

Uh oh. It doesn't sound too hard for a release group to get their hands on ahead of time then. Bad news for Ubi and Gearbox.
