    I bet they'll release it on the PC anyways in a year or two
    And somehow, they won't remember stating this.

    Most of the games for 360 eventually get a PC port because of Microsoft. This is only delaying the inevitable.

    Meh, after the gameplay video at E3 I didn't really care for this game anymore. Back when they announced it it looked and sounded awesome (more psychological fighting, use of tactics opposed to shooting and so on), then at E3 they showed just another "horror" shooter.

    That's a stupid reason, what the hell does it matter how you play the game? I'd enjoy it so much more with a higher resolution, better graphics, headphones, and right up to the monitor.

    the only thing the console(s) accounts for is the controls really

    The game sounds interesting but after all this hype there's no way it's going to live up to it.

    Who are they to tell us how we should pay our games? Big mistake. I can't see this game doing very well in the console demographic. This should have been a PC exclusive.

    4 years ago this game looked great, better than Crysis even. Anyone still remember the tornado physics demo they had running?

    All I see now is watered down console shit. The graphics are fucking terrible.

    Well that's too bad.
    I don't think their "most compelling way to experience "Alan Wake" was on the Xbox 360 platform" reason is a very solid one
    Maybe it came down to porting.
    Or they were made a offer they couldn't refuse.
    But that's just speculation, I am dissapointed. I was going to get it.

    Alan Wake After Console Exclusivity (Now):
    While you are right in pointing out that the overall quality has gone down.
    It's now on a console, and is now limited in what it can do.
    And if you're biggest gripe is the texture on the engine, why would they want to assign a group to model the car engines, something that won't play any major role in the game.
    That scene looks rather nice, especially the lighting.

    The shadows are blurry and low resolution, and the trees are ~10 polies (Obviously an exaggeration, but they look like shit.)

    Edited:

    Also the textures are ~512x512 max. Possibly 256x256.

    Compare the trees in the background of the second screen shot. The car is just icing on the cake.

    I'll see if I can't find a closer PC vs Xbox comparison.

    Edited:

    Here's another xbox shot.



    I love the draw distances. The lack of grass is cool too.

    Edited:

    2 planes of grass in the bottom right. :smug:

    I remember the quad core demonstration with the tornado and stuff. I just got a dual core back then and hoped that I would have a quad core when it would finally be released. Now I have a fucking quad core and those assholes cancel it to release it on the wrong right platform.

    I don't believe these bastards. I remember finding every interview about GTA IV before it's release, I was really hyped (Yeah it's a great game but that is not the point) The point is that every guy who is releated to GTA IV said something like "It's NOT going to be on PC 100% It isn't possible no wai or I'm a douche" at least once.

    The tech demos from fucking ages ago showed off much nicer tech than the Xbox version of today shows us.
