Come on, what do you expect from a recent 360 title, especially from Microsoft?

No doubt this will be the top dog of 2010.

Same here. I have this feeling that it would do better if it was also on PC, that making it Xbox exclusive will hurt it, contrary to what MS thinks.

Yeah, the 360 is the wrong console for this.

How is the 360 the wrong platform for this game?

I'm gonna throw out a wild guess that Blight thinks Alan Wake would be better served on the PS3.

Wrong demographic. The 360 trends younger and is mostly a shooter console.

Would Heavy Rain have sold a million copies on 360? (hint: no)

Do you have any facts to back that claim up, or are you just spouting your usual bs?

Check the Neilsen demographics if you want 'proof'.

360 skews 12-17, PS3 skews 18-24.

I asked how you would know whether Heavy Rain would not have sold well on the 360k, and if you had anything to back that claim up. Instead, you show me the average age of people who play each consle, in the US.

Because 12 year olds totally don't buy M-rated games (or have their parents buy it for them)...

You should know.

Heavy Rain is not a shooter. It's not targeted at the kiddies. They would be bored in five minutes.

Stop upvoting yourself. It's sad.

Which kills me. Why don't they move the release date up a bit. Why release it on the same day as Red Dead Redemption, when it's already done?

@ Malkmus

I agree. Right now is a dead slump for games(at least the new ones I want to play) and next month I'll be slammed with games(unless delays happen). It would be nice if they released it like... last week so I could be enjoying it while I have no other games I want to jump into.

@Malkmus

Most games go gold about a month before they are released. They still need to make the DVDs and packaging, check for serious bugs, and a whole lot more stuff.

Well, since Microsoft pulled the plug on the PC version, I hope this game fails.

Yeah, that is a real downer, especially when this was first a PC exclusive.

From MS's perspective, they actually want to kill PC gaming and move them all to their own console, where they control them fully on their proprietary platform. Restrict freedom and maximize profits. But I feel (hope) that this strategy will backfire on them.

Without a thriving PC platform console games would stagnate and die in quick order. I don't understand why console users seem to think that a system in which the devs have to pay liscensing fees is superior to a platform that is completely free to develope on and one that you can upgrade components on when they start to get long in the tooth.

No you don't need a new video card every year. No you don't need to be a rocket scientist to run one.

sorry for the confusion. I meant that to the OP, not nerdydesi.

Why hope for something to fail for such a frivolous reason? Why hope for something to fail at all unless its success harms you?

I hope most gamers are like me and choose to get both either that same day or some time later. Both games look great and have great studios backing them up.
Now I just have to figure out why Prince of Persia and Split/Second chose to come out the same day too. :(

Anyone pre-ordered the Limited Edition? Looks cool, and comes with a 144 book with a small story and the DLC and sountrack, and a special art on the game case.

The people you "know" need to be educated on quality gaming, my dear friend.

Alan Wake will turn their mediocre tastes into AAA filet mignon tastes.

Max Payne goes from detective in New York to bodyguard in Brazil. I think it would be cool to see him in one of the DLC's, even tangentially. Perhaps they can show some backstory.
