    Check your PM box... the rest is up to you.
    I never make a polite request twice, so I hope you will do what I asked you to do.
    If not, I'll do it myself and you're outta here. Job done.

    All up to you now...

    Yeahh...there was no real need for that ''only platform it should be played on'' rubbish, or Tez's response. Anyway, 360 for me, i've always had terrible computers and I don't really have the money for upgrades, 360 just makes it a pretty simple process.

    Wow, you think Steam sucks because of an engine update to a classic game?

    Valve have repeatedly stated that it was completely the modders' responsibilities to ensure that their mods are updated to use the most recent engine files.

    I may not know the specifics, but I do know that it's not Valve's fault and Steam does not "suck" because of the update.

    Mandatory updates ensure that everyone is running the same and latest version of their software.


    As for what version I will buy, I am at a loss here.

    The thought of a physical copy entices me, but if it's a Steamworks title, then I will definitely consider buying it on Steam for the inevitable pre-purchase discount.

    Me too, I love just running games by double-clicking the executable, without having to fetch the disc just to confirm that I "own" it (see Mass Effect 2).

    Bad Company 2 handles this very well; during installation, you can choose to have online authentication, as opposed to the other option of disc-checking.

    Depends on whether I can get a review copy or not. If not, probably PC...

    Playstation 3 if it isn't a botched version like it usually is.

    Unfortunately I don't have a beefy enough PC

    I just hope it isn't a games for windows live title. I can handle steam works title but a live title would be the last nail in the coffin for me never buying the game.

    GFWL fails on so many levels.

    Attempting to emulate Xbox LIVE on the PC was a big and costly mistake.

    I fear this as well.

    i'll be buying this game on Steam... but i'll also get it on PS3 or store bought PC-DVD if there are any limited edition packages that are worth buying. Steel case + art book + soundtrack + behind the scenes.... i have a weakness for such stuff.

    i always like laughing at behind the scenes video game documentaries because most of the time... the people they interview sound absolutely retarded in their justifications for the things they did. If you are curious about what I'm referring to... the Halo 2 documentary was a hilarious example.

    Complete with Hoobastank soundtrack, no less.

    pc without a question.........this of course will be determined by how the game actually plays. normally i would up and buy a game like this such as i did with fallout 3 and oblivion but this game falls into the category of "watching youtube gameplay videos first". consoles are too limited in every area i can think of....graphics, physics, controls, load times, etc.

    if there are too many viewpoint changes and to many cutscenes ill wait for the bargain bin or for a really good steam sale. i have a dozen or so games that i bought that i havent even started or havent finished yet, and several others are coming out fairly soon such as the witcher 2. i certainly dont have a shortage of stuff to keep me occupied.

    PS3, this will be barely be my fourth game since I bought the system 2 years ago. Although thats subject to change if I don't pick up the widely acclaimed Red Dead Redemption or the upcoming LA Noire in the Fall.

    Windows, store bought DVD like most people here. Although it would be great if Eidos offer people with physical DVD versions a download version as well, just in case we need a backup (like what blizzard did with sc2).

    in other words: they simply wont.

    Simple choice. Not a fan with the way the PC market is run and haven't been for almost 8 years. Besides, my laptop can't handle it (I'm sure). Right now I could buy 2 used 360s for the what it would likely cost to get my laptop into "DX condition".

    Sadly, 360 has become my gaming platform of choice over the last few years. Plus, it's hassle free, no codes, DRM, or compatibility issues... sorry, but I'm happy to take the hit in graphics to save money, know for a fact I can play it all the time, and not have to worry about being treated like a criminal by the company I just gave my money to.

    Also, I have a lot of friends who are now very interested in DX with the release of the upcoming sequel. A 360 copy I can pass around and have everyone borrow, in the hopes of making them converts. That's a little harder to do with a PC version.

    If the mod community for the title really takes off, I'll buy it again in a year or two for PC.

    PC, without a question. probably a DVD, but i'll see some reviews first.
    hope my lappy can handle this, my videocard's not the best, but I never owned a console, would never entertain the idea of spending money on something that's just for games and no other purpose (sorry, I grew up in Eastern Europe, where Nintendo was a sign of extreme luxury), on top of which, if it's a true DX game, it needs to be played with keyboard and mouse to account for all the possible options (and also to let me map out the input the way I like instead of what the devs made for me).

    PC is my only option.

    Most definitely PC. I am just really hoping that we are not forced to use Steam or GFWL. Not that I have anything against them, it is just that I do not have an internet connection for my gaming machine at the moment.

    If only Steam had a method for offline activations.
