Have you guys checked out the little sneak preview of this game? It looks freakin amazing!

http://lucasarts.com...forceunleashed/

Sadly enough, currently there are no plans to release a version for PC or Mac, consoles only. WTF?!! I'm not an avid gamer but I am a big Star Wars fan (closet case though, I don't attend conventions in storm trooper outfits or anything like that). I liked the original trilogy and although the prequels have been ok if that, I have always found my fix with the games. Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy and Battlefront 2 (the only real Star Wars flying action since Tie Fighter) are my current faves. I really hope that they reconsider and release this new game for PC's at least. I currently play the games that I do own on my PC. I am going to get a new MBP this summer (tax free weekend) and I was hoping to consolidate my computing onto one machine. This will throw a wrench into my plans. I really don't want to get a PS2 just for one game. There is a petition going on to encourage Lucas Arts and their partners to release this for the PC. I don't know how effective online petitions are but I figure they don't really require a lot of effort and I have a seperate yahoo account that I use for stuff that requires an email address. If anybody is interested in signing it's here:

So what do you guys think? Is there any possibility that they will release this game for PC's?

I heard about this game a year ago when a preview video leaked onto youtube, lucasarts tried to remove it but it had already spread...the game looks sick DMM, if they release it for OS X i'll be euphoric, i loved KOTOR and regardless of how rushed KOTOR2 was it was still amazing...I am a star wars fan but I also don't attend the conventions, however that special on the history channel, Star Wars: The Legacy Revealed, I have to admit was insanely amazing...

Looks good... Lucasarts makes good stuff. Still, I question their judgment releasing it for PS2 instead of PS3 or Xbox 360...

It's being released for PS2 PS3 and Xbox360. Since it's going to come out for PS2 it's safe to assume that it doesn't need more horse power than a PC can provide. Surely if a PS2 can handle the game then a computer's GPU can handle it. It would be a damned shame if they didn't release this for at least Windows XP (I'm not holding my breath for an OSX version). I'll be waiting with fingers crossed.

KOTOR and KOTOR 2 was and still awesome. I finished KOTOR 2 twice just to see the different effects of being a Jedi or Sith Lord. Im having high hopes for the forces unleashed. though i'll probably go for the console version.

I liked in KOTOR2 that you could choose your own path but more that your destiny was not as predetermined, I think it will be very similar in Force Unleashed, considering that you one of the few jedi remaining after the empire is formed...hopefully more freedom...but Digital Molecular Matter looks really cool
