Do you have a source for that, wilco? Not that I don't believe it, we all expected it, I'd just like to read about it.

GDC = Game Developers Conference?

nvm - found the(a) source. http://theinquirer.net/default.aspx?article=38078

We all know the PC version of Gears of War is coming out eventually, the only real question is when.

That said, I wouldn't consider The Inquirer a reputable source for anything, that website is really abysmal.

Sorry for double-posting, but according to the latest 1UP Yours podcast, Microsoft had ponied up for making the first Seeds (ex-Clover) game an Xbox 360 exclusive.

First Grasshopper, now Seeds, who's next?

If a Xbox 360 game is published by Microsoft Game Studios it's almost a guarantee that it will be released for the PC as well in 1-4 years. As the Xbox 360 is their "new baby", it gets all the games first to boost console sales. There are a few exceptions (the RTS genre mostly) where PC comes first but the 360 is where the money is currently at, especially with those idiotic micro payments that gamers keep buying.

Microsoft goes where the money is, and until they can get PC gamers to buy overpriced mini-pieces of content that was supposed to be in the original game (as opposed to free MODs and other options) they're going to make sure that developers make games for the 360 first and the PC second.

Not at all. Kameo, PDZ, PGR3, N3, Viva Pinata, Blue Dragon... With a possible exception of Viva Pinata, I don't think any of those games will ever be ported to the PC.

And microtransactions are not the only reason console games are a lot more profitable. What's the most interesting is that the concept of microtransactions originates on the PC, it's widely used in many Asian MMOGs.

Games that have come out on the Xbox first that are also on (or coming to) PC:

Fable
Halo
Halo 2
Gears of War
Jade Empire
Geometry Wars
Rallisport Challenge


Mass Effect is a for-sure, as it is a Bioware game. Shadowrun and Alan Wake are most likely going to be simultaneous launches as they are supporting the Windows Live gimmick. Viva, Kameo, and PDZ are most likely not as they are Rare games and Rare doesn't develop their games with the PC in mind. I would not be surprised to see PGR and Forza ported to PC sometime in the future as they are developed and published by MSG's in-house studios same as Bungie.

You are correct in that older MGS games are most likely not going to be ported. But any game that is coming out in 2008+ and supports Live will be out for both PC and 360. Once Vista has a large user base Microsoft is going to push Live Anywhere and we'll begin to see a flood of simultaneous releases for both systems.

I bet you not all of them will (by the way, all Xbox 360 games have to support Live, if only by implementing leaderboards and achievements). Games of genres that are popular on both platforms will go crossplatform (not always simultaneously), but I don't think we'll be seeing many platformers, JRPGs or party games crossing over to the PC.

Now this is a huge rumor, whose repercussions will shatter the whole industry if it's true.

Vice president of SCEE and president of SCE France said in an interview the exclusivity of Final Fantasy XIII is still under discussion. Interesting...

Your effort is appreciated, but maybe you should add something of your own when posting instead of just dumping a bunch of links, that's usually considered spamming. This is a forum, after all, not a link repository.

Nomore Heroes looks amazing, when I first saw the launch trailer I was sold, the second trailer is so-so. But yeah, Killer 7 was genius and I'm sure this game will rock.
