I know this has been discussed before but so far we have not heard anything from the official forum mods or devs other than that game designer who was interviewed by IGN and Gamespot. My problem is, if this game IS coming out for the PC, why do they keep labelling it as a next gen console only RTS?

I think they really wanted to emphasize that it was designed mainly with console "controllers" in mind and the key distinguishing factor to separate it from a PC RTS game was no base building and camera perspective would be third person not a bird's eye view.

I can't imagine that they wouldn't put it on PC if the lead game designer himself says it will be out on PC too.

Yeah, and I for one feel totally betrayed. Ghost Recon 1 and Rainbow 6 would be non-existent if they would have started out as Playstation 1 and N64 games back in the day.

Am I the only one missing something here? I've seen the videos and interviews. Out of all the media introduced, where does it say that it is coming to the PC? Someone posted a link here in some thread, but it never mentioned anything about the PC.

Supposedly this is coming to the pc, however, the console market is the primary target for current development efforts. PC will probably come later, as with ghost recon and rainbow six games.....

nothing new here...

Yes. Someone posted a source for this, however, it said nothing about the PC. I assume this was a misunderstanding on the person's part who probably got confused with some info and spun it a bit to suit his interest.

Have you guys considered that the MOD's might just be tired of having to answer all of these PC questions?

How much do you want to bet that if you find the first PC question, that it'll have an answer?

I posted it and I don't get any royalty fees for mentioning it, but I'd be glad to receive them if they give it, so I don't know what you mean by it was "a misunderstanding on the person's part who probably got confused with some info and spun it a bit to suit his interest" What interst?

Anyway, here's the link, it's in the article PLUS if you watch the video interview the LEAD game designer says it at the very end.

First of all, we need to get it back on topic please.

Second of all, I want to point out, that since the OP seems to be demanding answers from the moderators, that we don't know anything about the development of the games. I don't know where the idea came from that mods are developers, but mods are volunteers from the community whose only links to the developers are through the Community Managers. We find out info at the same time the community does and have no link to the developers to answer these types of questions.

An Xbox is a computer... But, to answer your... statement, a high end PC in the several thousand dollars range could run the game.

The 360 graphics features 512 MB of GDDR3 RAM clocked at 700 megahertz with an effective transmission rate of 1.4 GHz on a 128-bit bus. Pc or even laptop can reach that level of graphics. RAM is no problem too.

Well my quad core extreme 4 gig of ram and sli 8800gtx 768MB pc says my pc could run this game with without a doubt. and if my pc could not run this because it spec was to low which is not gonna happen then the 360 would not stand a chance or the ps3 yea they both got ok procesor and an ok g card good systems for the price fun aswell. but nothing compared with a top line pc rig

and for the record that rig didnt set me back over a grand let alone a couple of grand shudda cost about 1400 quid got it cheap so for a decent rig to run this game your looking at about a grand if that. top line graphics a grand and a half noone need to spend over 2 grand on a rig these days

Dear god, when will the console kiddies learn that PCs DOMINATE consoles?

can we not have the XYZ is "kiddie"/"gay" conversation? I've had this war a dozen times over with the airsoft and paintball communities. Two similar sports with two different demographics of players that could get along perfectly, but the people on both sides of the table are too macho so they say the other sport is "gay", "doesn't hurt", or "is for sissies". Yes, consoles have kids on them, and they probably have more kiddies on consoles than PCs because consoles are cheaper and more accessable, but PCs have whiney nine year old brats on them too (I'm proof. I was playing MOHAA at age 12), and console players over 16 hate the high pitched noobs as much as you guys do. (if not more since we have to put up with it more often.) So can we not have overgeneralized biggotry here? Please?

yea british but im not sure about australian as i dont have much to do with there but i goto new zealand alot if ur currency is anything like theres is about 2 dollars to the pound sterling so it would have been about 1800 dollars with the deal i got 2400 dollars without the deals u gotta shop around to find a decent price. my point tho originally was to the guy who said that a pc could not handle this game which was just plain wrong.

And the thing most people forget is that pc games scale well so yea on a low end pc it would look worse but it would run and from the look of the game id say a decent dual core 2 gig of ram and a would be fine for this game decent graphics decent performance.

This game should seriously come to PC since in 1 vid I saw they said that it might be coming to the computer, so it made me think that finally a really cool game will be finally coming, and then they don't make it for PC... people will be really disappointed.

It is definitely coming to the PC, according to Michael De Plater at the Ubidays, however it won't come at the same time the console version will hit the store shelves. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
