I completely agree. It's a clever attempt and boosting game sales on the 360, however, I guess they assume people are too stupid to remember they made the exact same statement in regards to GOW.

Load times are faster and I get to use anti-aliasing with the PC.

So use a 360 controller for Windows. That's what I do.

Epic should dump Microsoft and Midway.

Ubisoft is doing a much better job, and delivering much better PC titles with fewer bugs, which is ironic, due to Epic's past.

Gears of War on the PC is one of the buggiest games, and I wish it wasn't that way.

they said this about the first one.

Microsoft said it about both the halo games and the 3rd one (which will probably be released late next year on PC)

rock star has said no PC for GTA games the last 4 games and look... we got all 3 (well almost the 4th one) on PC.

This is the oldest trick in the book.

I never cared for GoW, so whatever. But, still, I can't believe they say, "oh, PC sales aren't as good as console sales."
Well, f*cking durrr! If everyone's played it on the 360, then what reason do they have to buy the PC version?

Epic, you suck.

It's unfortunate when people don't like certain PC games because of the controls. People seem to forget that on a PC you have a lot of freedom to customize your own controls with a keyboard and mouse, and believe it or not, there are USB controllers that are just like a Playstation or Xbox controller, which can also be customized.

They'll release it down the line, just like the first. They are just trying to fool the suckers into buying it for the xbox. I can wait for it, the first one was meh anyways.
