    It doesn't work cross-platform? Sucks... Maybe my brother has a PS3 and he wouldn't mind trading for my 360 for a while.

    It's sad there's all these consoles exclusives that already run on the PC during development. Half the port work is done by default but they can't be bothered to do the rest.

    If you must have it the night of release always do Walmart. Here there's a gamestop right next to Walmart and some how people still don't know this trick. I get home with my games at least a hour before my friends.

    Better yet if you can wait a day or two watch for the newegg preorder deals. $15 off and no tax.

    Well, this time it is different .. the porting process will be easy and straightforward. In fact almost all games will be developed on the PC first and then ported to the consoles.. not the other way around.

    In the past consoles had PowerPC design, it is like the opposite of PC's x86 design .. so it required different methods of coding and programming. Now every thing is x86, so the PC is back again at the front line.

    Games for consoles are developed on their respective developer kits.... Which are, in a way closer to a PC than a console, but they aren't a PC.
