Alan Wake for the PC? No. For Real This Time.

AW1

                                    “Alan Wake for PC! Where are you?!”

Alan Wake has been development for a hell of a long time, and years ago it was planned that it would make an appearance on the PC as well as the Xbox 360. Then it fell off the radar and seemingly into the abyss for a while before resurfacing a while later. Then last year the decision was left with Microsoft as to whether the game would see people playing it on the PC, seeing as Remedy didn't really seem to give a damn much.

But now the decision is final: Alan Wake will not be released on the PC after all.

"Some games are more suited for the intimacy of the PC, and others are best played from the couch in front of a larger TV screen. We ultimately realized that the most compelling way to experience 'Alan Wake' was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive. Both Microsoft and Remedy have long histories in PC game development. This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform."

And I was just talking about it the other day to my brother, saying how good it looked. That it might just be the best horror game I’ve seen in quite a while. I personally think it’s rubbish – the whole explanation they gave. I’m sure Alan Wake would have fitted in quite nicely on the PC. It looks like nobody could really be bothered in the end.

Oh, well. Plenty of other non-exclusive titles that’ll hit the PC this year anyway.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
