Default No Gears of War 2 for PC?

http://kotaku.com/5043725/no-gears-o...-you-pc-gamers

This would suck, as I thought Gears 1 played a LOT better on PC, despite PC reviews saying the opposite. It also looked a lot cleaner, as the 360 original had this fuzzy look to it.

Here's the most direct quote possible from CliffyB:

I really hope that's not true. GOW PC was hell of a lot better than the 360 version.

Sounds exactly what they said about the first one.

I'm pretty sure they denied it was in development before the announcement, but never said flatly "we are never doing it."

Could be wrong.

It's coming. As always, they have to say this so they will make people that are willing to buy it on the 360 get it. And then they will get it out for the PC so the rest of the people will buy it... It's like a broken record, "only coming out on this" and then sometime later, poof, announced for other systems...

of course they wont. theyre still bitching about how it didnt get any recognition. the controls on PC are a POS. i play with my 360 controller and i beat ppl online. that shouldnt happen with PC.

i disagree. the only thing better was the textures and high res.

i thought the controls on PC were awkward.

I bet it will be on PC later, as did the first one. Once they have the 360 version is not that difficult to port to PC

it probably already is on the PC....

Of course it will come out much later...and then they will blame it on something for poor sales...

Its like that cowism..

Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead
