Alan Wake Reconfirmed As PC/360 Exclusive 47

Posted by Zonk
from the heck-of-a-tornado dept.
Alan Wake (the game with the really great tornado from last year's E3) has been reconfirmed as an exclusive title for Microsoft platforms. Via Wired's Game|Life blog, the news comes from the awesomely named Helsingin Sanomat website. Remedy (makers of the Max Payne titles) had this game slated as a 360/PC exclusive back in their E3 2006 trailers, but news of Microsoft's new 'mentoring' role for the company appears to have renewed interest in the game. It's unclear why Microsoft isn't following their general pattern of purchasing the company outright, but the 30-employee strong company is staying independent. Microsoft's resources still back the company, though: "Microsoft has huge machinery for games production. If a team of 80 voice actors are needed from the States, they can provide it. Their test laboratory is also fantastic."

    Yeah, go double f yourselves, Remedy! I'm not going to go out there and buy a whole $400 console just to play one of your games! You want me to play your game? I expect an XBox 360 to come with it, and we all know that that's NOT going to happen.

    Oh wait a minute, that sounds a bit silly, doesn't it? Just as silly as expecting any other system requirement to come with a game.

The only problem with being a man of leisure is that you can never stop and take a rest.
