It means that the game can be played on a Windows PC. You have the option of hooking up a controller (but that option has been there for a while). :)

That's true, but you have to make sure your PC is capable of running TR: Anniversary. ;)

According to what I saw, the icon on the left of "Games for Windows" is an Windows Vista:mad: icons! So, I presume it is for Vista:mad:

Most PC users are still using Windows XP, so I'm sure TR: Anniversary will be compatible with both XP and Vista.

I hope that you don't have to have Vista.
So you could buy the controller for the PC? But will it work on the Windows XP, or only on Vista?

***EDIT***
It looks as though it can work on the PC, Windows XP!


Does anybody know how to find out the prices?

and according to EBGames site, TRA for PC, PS2 and PSP versions are all $29.99 US each.

Also, the US release dates are as follows:

PS2~ 5/29/07
PC ~ 6/5/07
PSP ~ 6/26/07

It's been my impression that the "games for windows" simply means that the game takes full advantage of the advanced game features of Vista (something about a special games menu?????). Anyway, Vista will probably not be required because I have other games with that logo that are XP friendly. No worries. :rasp:


Anyway, that would be instant failure for CD because I know many people (such as myself) have no interest in upgrading to Vista until necessary. Xp works fine for now

All it means is its tested to be compatible with Vista, of course it will still play on XP

Those aren't official release dates. It's just speculation...

For me it's been pretty accurate seeing as how I've visited that site for many years and close to 100% of the time games have been released on dates specified by the site.

But again, as Johnny said, the dates can possibly change. :)
