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

It didn't release on PC when it first came out because the head of Lucasarts at the time disliked the PC platform.

We have a new head of Lucasarts now who loves the PC platform. That is why this is being ported, we got Monkey Island stuff, we got Steam releases.

It's pretty simple.

That's still more plausible than the bull they originally served us. Now that, I'll accept as a possibility...

If they don't want to release a PC version they should just say "there wont be a PC version" instead of trying to bull**** us with "it can't be made" like they did before.

The new guy pretty much said it matter-of-factly before.

30 minute gameplay walkthrough on PC:

Looks good graphically, but the port seems a little rough, as expected from Aspyr. Still, I will probably get it eventually.

Really? For some marketing speak?

Every studio and publisher does marketing speak, I thought we all knew to look through that and ignore it.

It's $40 I believe, and why "should" it be anything?

My point is: so what?

Some idiot makes a stupid comment. Does it really matter? Why obsess over it. I can't read an article about this game without someone mentioning it... is it really that big of deal?
