Default Force Unleashed Coming to PC???

Itís crazy that this isnít already in the wild, but turns out plans for a PC version of heavily-physicsed Star Wars Sith Ďem up The Force Unleashed were quietly revealed at NVIDIAís recent NVISION 08 conference. RPSí super-secret spy at the event has sent us an audio recording of Pixelux Entertainment (the company behind The Force Unleashedís physics tech) COO Vik Sohal saying this in the middle of his talk about game physics:

ďÖJust been released last week on the internet, the Force Unleashed demo on both the PS3 and Xbox 360. We have a PC version as well.Ē

So there you have it. Iím pretty sure this is an exclusive, but itís possible Iím just really bad at using Google. Big thanks to RPSís super-secret spy for this.

If this was revealed, but got no press, then PC gaming is worse off then I thought.

This should be rampaging through the forums, if true.

Edit - direct from LucasArts - “I can tell you definitively that there is no PC version of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed planned. I would assume Vik was talking about a PC version of Digital Molecular Matter.”

Really sucks because although it's relatively fun on the 360, the main problems with the demo are:

- No dismemberment.
- Poor frame rate (30fps with no motion blurring = da jerky)
- Horrible camera control

The last two would be fixed with a PC version, the first would be fixed with a mod.

The gameplay of console was very PG-13 and canned feeling with crap everywhere to pick up and throw. I wouldn't of bought it for PC unless it was sub $20. Psi Ops is/was a much better and very similar game. (Free for PC too btw)

28fps seems to be buttery smooth by console standards. GTA 4 had horrible frame rate, but many friends of mine, who are console fans, seemed to think the game ran smooth as silk.
