Corrected. 1080p is so... 2007.

It's hard to say either way. It probably all depends on how well it sells on Xbox One. If it's a hit you probably won't see it on PC as they'll keep it exclusive to entice gamers. If it has mediocre sales they'll likely release it on PC to try to at least break even on it.

true but Netflix is an $9 service you pay and watch whatever when ever...
and I was talking about heavy hitters... Let say game of throne is available only on Xbox for all the seasons and are available on other stores 2 years after the last season finale episodes... Kind of old news if you still have to pay the premium,price when its available half price on,Xbox by then or less... If I haven't played QB by then I'd rather buy. It on sale or used for XB than for PC no matter the graphic improvement... I'd rather run it at 1080p on 50+ than 4k on a 25... Especially at bargain bin price...



I hope so, I'm a fan of Remedy's games :o.

If it's a late port it will most likely launch at a budget price on PC (and will go on sale for even cheaper), just like Alan Wake did. And just because you aren't a PC gamer doesn't mean there aren't millions of PC gamers that aren't interested in the XBOne. There is a market for late ports on PC whether you are part of that audiance or not. Alan Wake was a super late port but it was still profitable within a few hours of launch. Also you could play it at 4K on an 80in TV from PC if you wanted. The whole prefer couch and TV to a monitor arguement died 7 years ago, it is easy to play PC games on the couch on your TV from a PC if you want to.

I say this because I read an article in 2012 from Remedy and actually pinned it up on my saved articles. Remedy nagged at Microsoft until it happened. Microsoft just made them wait until it sold on the console first. I think this will have the same outcome. Remedy is a very loyal brand to PC gamers. Nothing they create for Microsoft will ever truly stay exclusive because they are just too loyal. Here is a quotation and the article. I am almost certain Quantum Break is coming to PC.

"What I'm trying to say, to speak from the heart, PC gaming is part of Remedy's heritage, back from the first Death Rally that was made in a basement to Max Payne 1, which was made partly in a basement, and Max Payne 2. Announcing Alan Wake on PC was always an important factor for us."

Here is the difference.

Quantum Break is a MS IP and not a Remedy IP. When it came to Alan Wake Microsoft allowed them to get a different publisher for the game. I believe it was Nordic Games. All the games you mentioned were Remedy IP's.

This would be a 100 percent Microsoft decision that I don't think they will green light.

This article right here doesn't paint the picture of the game being a Microsoft IP but rather an investor. Remedy credits them saying the game couldn't have happened without their funding, but thats about it.

You could be right though, but even then I think they would still nag at Microsoft to allow them to do it no different than Alan Wake. 



Yes it is a very real point first no gamers almost be a 4k 80 inch tv today... So anything above 1080p on a 50+ tv is useless... And no matter how you put it I have had my PC hooked up to my tv for more than decade got anything from the 300 bucks piece of crap to the 3000 bucks rig hooked up and it is still unerly nerdy, not wife or social friendly compared to any media/game box hardware... And the gain in performance on a 1080p tv is minimal compared to the inconvenience and the total lack of ergonomic of of the input mean and UI navigation with a living room setup... The only interest I see in PC gaming is if you have a beast with a 3 screen ultra HD low latency display set up
and I do game on PC btw.. Just RTS, and indie survival horror games...



Oh I did say for a blockbuster... Alan wake is not one... Release COD 2 years later on PC I doubt it will captivate many crowds.. Now I'm sure QB would sell on PC even later.. But will it be still hyped enough by then to motivate MS to invest money into a port since it's their IP is an other story... Alan wake didn't do so hot on xb porting it could only massively improve revenue... If QB does very well on console the marginal gain of PC port might not warrant the investment and more importantly dev time... Compared to making a QB2 or a AW2 even..
anyway I don't really care good for PC gamers if they do, heck they could even port or to PS I wouldn't care... It's just that I'm not so sure they will do it...



Sorry for the typos damn auto correct on the phone...
