Alan Wake was originally supposed to be a game for the PC and the Xbox 360. We heard a few weeks ago that the game might never make it to the PC platform. However people hated on Remedy for this. We find out that its not Remedy's decision its Microsoft. The power is in the hands of Microsoft.
Microsoft of course hates PC gamers. I am almost positive it will not come to PC, and heres why
Halo 3 never made it to PC (MS decesion)
Gears of War 2 never made it to PC
Fable 2 never made it to PC
Alan Wake ?
The whole games for windows is a gimmic from M$ to make it seem like they support PC gaming. When really they don't give 2 (insert explicit word here) about you. They don't make as much money from PC as they do with 360. (Remember MS dosent have any PC hardware besides the software) So they make more money on selling 360's and controllers. They also make money with Xbox Live.
Financially its not in there intrest.
This pissed me off. I've been waiting for Alan Wake for a while. It seems like an amazing game. However most likely we will never see it come to PC. Thanks M$! Great support for PC gamers!
I know a lot of you are going to be pissed of just like I am.
Here is the quote from Remedy.
Thank you for your continued interest in Alan Wake. It is accurate that we are currently working exclusively on the Xbox360 version of Alan Wake. PC plans are currently open, and therefore it's safe to say that at least a simultaneous launch with the Xbox version will not happen at this late stage. Remedy has a deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers, ultimately however this decision lies with our publisher.
