    Oh Gosh I hope so Back in 2005 there was some crosstalk that suggested that Gears of War could also launch on PC in addition to Xbox 360. In an interview with Eurogamer J Allard suggested that Gears...

    Lets stay with the thought that it is coming for the PC. :D (praying to happen)

    Yeah i think the game will eventually be ported but it will be later on the year so it can make XBOX 360 sales 1st more and then release it to the PC.

    ^^^ what he said. look at Halo. they had Halo out for a while, then put it on PC... so they could basically get sales for both. now they're doing the same with Halo 2..... cept Vista Only.... 2 birds with one stone i guess.

    They wouldn't have let such a money-making game not appear on the PC. Since games are developed on PCs nowadays with PC-originated engines, it makes more sense than ever to release games on PCs also

    Yes they will eventually release it for the PC but after a while when its out on the X360 so the sales can be better for the platform since it will be the so called "exclusive only content for the console" and after that they might port it to the PC so they can make more money of the other platform. Simple marketing strategy.

    HERE is a short article at IGN that sheds further light on the issue. seems like gears of war on pc is pretty definite.

    What exactly are you trying to say? Just cause it comes to PC (which is a good thing by the way), doesn't mean the xbox360 owners will enjoy it any less. If I had a Ferrari for instance and then you go out and buy one, will I even care? Highly doubtful...

    Yeah exactly. Exclusivity is the driving force behind being "unique" and trying to "stand out".
