Alan Wake officially not coming to the PC

Despite all of the physics presentations shown awhile back on Intel quad cores, it seems this game will not be headed to the PC platform. One can still speculate that this is still a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360, but the statement below certainly hits where it hurts.

“Some games are more suited for the intimacy of the PC, and others are best played from the couch in front of a larger TV screen. We ultimately realised that the most compelling way to experience “Alan Wake” was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive. Both Microsoft and Remedy have long histories in PC game development. This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform.” said a Microsoft spokesperson.

In july last year Markus Maki, head of development, said that they’re focusing all their efforts on the 360 version, but will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later date. Although it now looks like this is confirmed as an Xbox 360 exclusive.

It also makes one question how well Microsoft knows the PC platform in its entirety. Since when can a PC not be hooked up to your TV?
