Default Gears confirmed for PC

http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3157194

Gears: Exclusive to 360 Now, PC Port 'Eventually'

Speaking to Team Xbox, Epic's VP and co-founder Mark Rein expanded on the possibility of a PC version of Xbox 360 mega hit, Gears of War. The short, nebulous answer: it'll happen, but not yet.

If this were recent or there were a timeframe given, it might seem important.

The real question is how long before it hits store shelves?

Gears of War 2 for 360 same time as Gears of War on PC maybe?

I don't think Gears on PC was ever a matter of "if" but more a matter of "when."

And when it comes out it better have some Dx10 features and much sharper textures..In one interview I read that Mark Rein loves Dx 10 for it will be easy to implement super high res textures

We already know that UE3 is designed to take advantage of DX10, so it wouldn't suprise me if Gears uses DX10 for improved performance.

If halo is any indication, we'll get some unique weapon and a few maps; graphics will remain relatively unchanged. They even got rid of the reflective effect on the assault rifle. I will hope for DX10 improvements though, and an FPS mode

Thats true and I really hope for more higher textures and so.
As they often said they like to push the envelope and Unreal 3 (tournament) will do that so it will be exiting to see the differens betwen the Pc vs the 360/PS3 versions
