Default Lucas Arts Announces The Force Unleashed for PC/MAC!

Talk about flip flopping on principles... they blasted the PC and now they go out and announce the games port to the PC due out later this year. I wonder if it will be the PS3/X360 version of the PS2/Wii version.

Also they announced new DLC and New Version for the PS3/X360 that adds an extra chapter if you chose the "What if" ending...

It is unknown if the PC version will be the rerelease of the game or just a port of the original...

It's a brainless hack n' slash game like Streets of Rage or something... nothing like the Jedi Knight games

That said, it can be fun, and has an excellent story if you like Star Wars.

Yeah its in no way worth full retail. I got mine for $15 and at that price it was worth it.

I think seeing the pretty damn good graphics and Star Wars world representations in full 1200p 16xAA glory would be worth more than that to me... the game was visually very impressive.

Weren't the console versions technical disasters? 360 version had the best visuals but ran like ****, ps3 ver was ugly as sin yet played more smoothly.
