    After the E3 trailer, it was announced that the release would be sometime in the spring of 2010.

    by the way it's a 360 exclusive I don't think it will be coming to the PC. you can watch the E3 Demo here.

    it keeps getting pushed further and further out.

    its going to be old tech by time its released.

    there was some confusion at E3 because they said "360 exclusive" looks like it will be coming to PC too.

    Yes, it will be come to PC, as it was developed for PC.

    The Xbox360 exclusive comment was on the console side, meaning it won't be coming to PS3 or Wii...like the Wii could handle it anyway:laugh:.

    It still exists, it was shown off at E3 last month and there are new gameplay videos on the webs at Ign.com and Gamespot.com and what not.

    For the kind of visuals that we're seeing in the video, I highly doubt it's going to be an x360 exclusive.

    If Crysis 2 was announced for consoles(which it has at E3) i am sure Alan Wake would run.

    I thought it looked pretty cool at E3, I'll be keeping my eye on it, hope it's scary. The last Silent Hill wasn't lol.

    For Cryengine2 to scale down to make xbox360 feel comfortable, is possible. But for an xbox360 to churn out the kind of visuals you just saw in the video, unlikely.

    There is a PC version, it was demonstrated at IDF 2007/08 (on a Core 2 Quad + GeForce 7900 GTX machine).

    clearly that is the pc graphics sure it wont be as high detail but i expect it to be nice looking on the 360 too

    no point in rushing a game that requires Quad-core for normal FPS
    whos going to buy it? not a lot of people have quad-core

    In case you thought I was here to "hate" x360, you're mistaken. I could care less about how other people play their games.

    I agree, as a 360 gamer I'm pretty tired of "LOLOLOLOL 360 SUCKS" on this forum, works fine for over 28 million people. Obviously PC has better graphics as the 360 is 4 years old and you can freely upgrade your PC, with the rate graphics cards are coming out, a year is all you need to have an obsolete card. 4 years old, 3.2GHz Tri-Core and only 512MB RAM, it can only do so much.

    Graphics don't make a game anyway, so I don't see what the problem is with the 360. Blame the developers, not the console.

    personally, i don't like X-box, but i don't really hate it
    simply because they lack the depth of PC games. obviously, a lot of it is due to lack of keyboard and mouse. if only MS could release keyboard and mouse for x-box... but it would be hard to use it, while on the couch. so there you go...
