It's probably hardware tweaking (so that also the less ultra-pc's can handle it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ), maby DX10 integration.
And maby (but I don't think so) mod-tools http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
But I'm not sure on everything, ofcourse.

I think the delay of games is like the tide, you can not change them and they happen anyway.

It's either for optimizing the game for PC, since it was probably mainly developed for console, or they signed Sony and Microsoft contracts for the PC delay (more sales on 360 and PS3 if the PC gets the game some months later).

I was thinking that, but then... Microsoft own PC (well... xp... vista) so I was wondering how it would work. So I'm probably leaning towards the top one... but 2008? thats a bit harsh 0.o

Microsoft gets more cash from 360 sales than PC. For one, 360 games cost 10 bucks more, and MS also knows that piracy thingie. >_>

You've got to be kidding me. At the time BioShock came out, I checked some torrent forums and guess what version was advertised more

*hint* It was not the PC version.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. I never check torrent sites for games. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

Guys dont get mad at me but

WOOHOO!!!

Allright so that means I keep the money I get on my BD in November, and the money I get to X-mas...
Then my poket money wich is 50€...
Hmm, money goes out for that stupid Fitnis studio.
( Dont need it anymore^^ Found a sport insted )
Well till its on PC ima have the money for a Brandnew PC! And the game probly.

Anyways yea I bet its for the money makeing.
There are people that have a PC but don't know about this game.
Once they see its on Xbox360 or PS3, some are gonna buy one for this game. I think... I would <.<;

Are you actually trying to suggest that the 360 has BETTER graphics than the PS3, wow thats a new one for me lol. I've heard people saying that they're equal, or that there is little difference, but never that >.>

and even though i'm getting this on ps3 (my pc sucks *****) PCs will always be better because there is an unlimited amount of ways to upgrade them. In a years time (most probably less) top range pcs will be better than any console, especially the 360 (I've got both)

Why should you care as long as it's coming out?
And besides - it's tradition. PC versions usually come out after the console ones.

....halo 2 came to pc just recently and the xbox games been out for ages.. lol


..devoleping a game for 3 platforms isnt as fast as doing it for just one, so i guess they desited to delay the pc version [did they ever confirm a pc version?] because its the least popular platform
