    This is really bothering me. I'd like to get it because it's cheaper than the consoles and my computer would handle it well, yet I'm concerned because it's a online Target exclusive. It's possible it could be a gimmicky cheap and rushed port of the console version and could be very unstable and have crappy controls. What do you guys thin. Would I bet better off paying 10 more dollars for the PS2 version (I'm not a serious enough gamer to own any next-gen equipment).

    Hmm, I would wait for reviews.

    But the PC version is coming out a little later than the console ones, so it's a little tempting to get the PS2 one earlier. The PC version would most probably look better than the PS2 version though.

    Maybe I should get it latter so I don't spoil the movie...but I know how the plot generally unfolds...not to mention the game only loosely follows the movie....but I can't freaking wait. I feel like a little kid again.

    Console inferior, PC superior

    *cough* sorry there, my bias was starting to show >_>

    I have to say though, despite my PC being FAR superior...I'll still most likely end up with the CE 360 version instead.

    PC is superior, but the PC version of the game might be inferior due to focus on the console versions and most likely just make a half-assed port to the PC. It just makes me suspicious that it's in a very very limited release (one online store).

    Graphically, I imagine it would be on par with the next-gen console versions (360/PS3). Hard to say about control, though.. this sort of action game is very well suited to to a controller, doesn't seem like it would translate all that well to keyboard.

    Is it confirmed that the PC version is Target-exclusive, or does Target just have the exclusive RoboVision version of the PC game, in the same way that Gamestop has the Cybertron edition of the 360 game?

    Well considering Target is the only website that has the PC version period...

    I just hope its not the whole spider-man 2 case, where the console versions were the same but the pc version was almost completly different.

    That's pretty much what makes me hesitant.

    I can tell your a console guy and not a computer guy. I can do 1,000 more actions/shortcuts/movements with my keyboard that you can't with a controller.

    Mouse accuracy > Controller accuracy

    Besides, worse case scenario, I plug in a controller to my PC.

    Indeed, good example of this was GTA games. I could do so much more things in those games a lot easier with the keyboard/mouse combo than when I played it on the PS2 controller. Aiming was a lot smoother and easier than with an analog controller. They should give the PC guys a demo which is what I always base my purchases of PC games on. Reviews are good but unless you get a chance to play it you are always taking a chance.

    ^Looking at the title of this thread reveals what you were talking abou,t but I could almost swear it said either "Will the PC version of the game be any good?" or "Will the PC version be any good?" when I first looked at the thread. I have to ask did you or anyone else change the title of the thread after the fact?
