The Force Unleashed on PCs

Aspyr Media and LucasArts announce plans to bring Star Wars The Force Unleashed to Windows and MacOS this fall in a new special edition of the game called Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition. This will include the full game as released on consoles, along with additional content in the form of three single-player missions. Here are some screenshots, and here's a bit:

Developed for PC and Mac and published in North America by Aspyr, Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition combines the original Star Wars The Force Unleashed videogame with three new levels set in iconic Star Wars locales and a host of new costumes and character models. This special edition of the game will show players the deepest, darkest side of the Force in a story that puts them on a collision course with Luke Skywalker himself.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed completely re-imagines the scope and scale of the Force and casts players as Darth Vader’s “Secret Apprentice,” unveiling new revelations about the Star Wars galaxy seen through the eyes of this mysterious new character, who is armed with unprecedented powers. Originally released on multiple platforms in September 2008, the game quickly became the fastest-selling Star Wars game ever, and has since sold six million units worldwide.

Well visual quality is obviously subjective but I'll just say that I've played plenty of games on the PC that don't measure to Infamous in that department. I find most consoles to be fine graphically except the Wii, it's usually a case of limited video memory that causes problems. As ram prices have decreased to ridiculously low levels and even moreso for volume customers, I don't think it'll be as much of a problem next generation. If you asked me what I thought of consoles in the PS2/Xbox/Dreamcast days I would not have nice things to say

Oh I agree the gap is a lot lower now... that's one of the reasons console gaming is dominating more and more. I don't think the gap will ever close though.

At first I thought this generation would be different from before at the end, when PC gaming usually leaps ahead of console gaming. I thought this time games would look mostly the same on both platforms for the entire generation. With Left 4 Dead and Mirror's Edge though, I changed my mind... those games were fundementally better on PC in many ways. With Dragon Age and Rage and others coming, I think the gap will widen. Which isn't to say it will be AS wide as before, even in the last year of the 360, but it will be significant. I was teetering on the brink of "going console" for good myself, until I played the Xbox 360 Left 4 Dead demo, then the PC version... vastly superior on PC.

But in essence I agree the differences this generation are smaller.

As for Infamous, the design and animation was great, I just found the complete lack of AA and AF, and the poor draw distance and blurry overuse of depth of field, to be distracting and rather ugly. On a fundemental level it did look great, but as a life-long PC gamer I have trouble dealing with such things I guess.
