    Very cool news ... at last they are starting to push the "right" version ... j/k folks. Seriously this is very positive news ... it definitely proves Midway was waiting for the console version I guess to get the max benefit for their money.

    That is the only thing that makes sense.
    I never looked at it that way but given this is a timed exclusive you are probably correct. They don't want any mention of anything even remotely connected to Microsoft on their dime so no mention of PC gaming because of Windows and no "From the Studio of the Year ... creator of Gears of War" like on the back of the box. However once the 360 version comes out you will definitely see quote that being used in the MS/Midway ads. Good call man.

    "Pics or it never happened" is something that people respond when a guy is bragging about getting a hot chick.

    I believe you saw it; I'd just like to see it myself. Not as proof, but because I've been looking forward to UT3 commercials. And I've tried searching for it in the past, but the videos are falsely labeled as TV commercials so there's no way I can tell what is a true TV commercial and what is just a joke or just a PC ad.
    Oh so those links were not to the actual commercial ... well just watch the sci-fi channel and also G4 and at some point I am certain you will see it. It features Reaper actually so it is a bit strange because it is like they (Midway) is plugging the SP portion of a game that is really a MP focused game ... makes me wonder if they even know their own product.

    Very funny! ROFL!

    I hope someone can put the real ad up on YouTube 'cause I don't watch TV.

    We can't blame Epic for catering to the console players; they have to follow the money just like all of us do out there in the real world. Let's just hope that the game becomes a smash hit on the consoles and that its popularity on consoles helps to advertise it to PC players (many of whom don't seem to know the game exists nor anything about its history). Sadly, we're going to need popularity on the consoles to help drive sales for the PC game.

    Given the way some of the other PC releases are selling, you have to wonder if the gaming companies have outsmarted themselves with high hardware requirements. In the pursuit to sell people on graphics and not game play, have they shot themselves in the foot?

    Epic Games is a business, and a business tends to wherever the money is made the most.

    But saying, "Ugh, this game is so console based, I'm not going to buy it for PC" won't help us PC gamers at all.

    Use your heads.

    I must say, it is a true shame how PC gamers are the ones that started the franchise. We are now being given the boot.

    The best of all this? In the end, they will look at the figures and say "Oh will you look at that. PC sales were the worst of the bunch. Let's not focus on PC games anymore." Well duh. You only advertised it for the consoles.

    Can we blame them? No. They need to make their incomes, too.

    But someday, a company dedicated to its fan base will rise and find the perfect balance between profits and taking care of your fan base properly. Oh wait, doesn't Blizzard do this already?
    QFT!!!!!!!!
