    Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    This game looks totally awesome... but there's one problem - it's not coming to PC!

    There is a petition here though: http://www.petitiononline.com/g5d4iu5f/petition.html

    Give it a sign if you want this game on PC :>.

    Don't understand why they've said it won't be getting a PC version thus far though... they said "it would require a high end PC" or such. Well, 360 is hardly a high end PC, and i'm willing to bet there is enough people with dual core CPUs to leverage DMM and that other technology it's got.

    I mean look at Crysis - that was still highly profitable! And a 360 -> PC port can't be the hardest thing, can it? In fact isn't porting to PS3 one of the harder things for devs to do? Valve have basically said they hate PS3 because of that fact.

    Discuss!

    Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Erm.... Porting to PC from 360 CAN be the hardest thing... Wether or not it is.. that's another question.

    I was under the impression (and tell me if I'm wrong) that to port a game from 360 to PC means rewriting most of the game due to compatability issues.

    However, I'll sign that petition... and look out for the more massive spec games out on the market

    Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Signed! I was ticked off, too, when I heard this isn't coming to PC. Especially considering the PC market *made* LA; wonder if they would still exist if not for the early success of Monkey Island, the TIE Fighter series, the Dark Forces series, etc. It ain't right!

    Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    Wii? That'd be interesting..

    I played CoD 3 on Wii (which was, to be totally honest, one of the hardest ways of playing that game I've found yet...) and would be interesting to see some other nice games come out for it (so I can buy them for my friend then drop by his house and complete them for him...)

    And all of them top-notch games...and except for GoW, they're all Bioware games.

    I still seriously hope that LucasArts will remove their heads from their rears and release TFU onto PC (I'm also hoping GTA4 will come to PC...and I'm pretty certain it will within a year).

    And if LA doesn't give us PC gamers TFU, they'd at least better give us either KotOR 3 or another Jedi Knight game... >.<

    Re: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed

    GTA4 would be nice.. mewants that on PC (having played it at friends)
    DMC4 just came out, getting that soon (having played it at friends)


    Don't like the Bioshock games though.. they can stay on consoles for all I care (and yes, I know that they're on PC as well... or were going to be released for PC as well..) and some of the other FPS/TPS on consoles are just too samey.

    Would like to see H3 on PC at some point, if only for the online play.

    Do you mean Bioware?
