I can't say I'm surprised at all, honestly.

I prefer consoles over PCs in general.

Its a gimped PC. Besides, each system has its own specific games that play good on them. I really dont think you're going to go buy Tekken and say lol lets play it on the pc.

lol definetly not.

Fighting games don't really work on PC's.

But most genres can be played on a PC np, and it doesn't take a genius to realize that w/ most fPS games u get a better range of motion w/ a mouse.

you can always use your 360 wired controller on the pc. ...

Yeah they had a interview with some guy at Epic and they asked him if there was a 'pc version' planned and he said "not at the moment. but I wouldn't call it off the table"

Meaning "Microsoft will get pissed if I say yes."

You can always get a console controller adapter for your pc. I got the trio-linker plus that allows me to hook up gamecube playstation or Dreamcast controllers. Then you can make your own original xbox adapters just by cutting off the end of an xbox controller and wiring it to a usb cable. Trust me it's simple.

I would just use a 360 controller on PC. I think halo fanboys use it instead of a mouse.

I suspect/hope it will come to the PC. Who knows when. Unreal Championship 1/2 didn't make it to the PC.

Listing on some Swis site doesn't give me any more hope than I already had, though.

My fighting game example had nothing to do with control. Remember PCs have had joysticks and gamepads for decades. I meant you would prefer to play it on a console because its so much easier to challenge friends on. And if you're playing a fighting game, chances are you're challenging a friend. Same for most sports games.
