Gold - Metro 2033

THQ announces that Metro 2033 is now gold and 4A Games' post-apocalyptic shooter is due for Windows and Xbox 360 on March 16 in the U.S. and Germany, March 18 in Australia, and March 19 everywhere else. There's a new "Ghosts of the Metro" trailer on the Metro 2033 Website showing off the graphics that THQ's Huw Beynon told Computer and Video Games is a PC "love letter," saying: "If you are a core PC gamer and you're wondering where all the love's gone when your PC games are just a slightly higher res version of what's on the console, then I'd say 4A are writing a love letter to you and doing absolutely everything to make the PC version phenomenal." Here's a bit on the game:

The year is 2033. An entire generation has been born and raised underground, and their besieged Metro Station-Cities struggle for survival, with each other, and the mutant horrors that await outside.

You are Artyom, born in the last days before the fire, but raised Underground. Having never ventured beyond your Metro Station-City limits, one fateful event sparks a desperate mission to the heart of the Metro system, to warn the remnants of mankind of a terrible impending threat. Your journey takes you from the forgotten catacombs beneath the subway to the desolate wastelands above, where your actions will determine the fate of mankind.

uhmmm why? Because it supports 3D glasses? Phbbbt...how about supports mods, has dedicated servers, and free follow-along content.
That was the pre-console definition of PC support.

You mis-read the quote:

showing off the graphics that THQ's Huw Beynon told Computer and Video Games is a PC "love letter"

They are explicitly only talking about how good it looks on PC.

Also, expecting official "free follow-along content" from any game is ludicrous. Only a small minority of PC games have ever provided this, regardless of the console market.
