Gold - Shadowrun

Microsoft Game Studios announces that both the Windows Vista and Xbox 360 editions of Shadowrun are gold, and that FASA's cross-platform (but not cross-Windows) shooter should be in stores on May 29:

Gaming communities on Xbox 360 and Windows Vista will come together for the first time over Xbox LIVE and Games For Windows LIVE, when Shadowrun teleports to retailers May 29

Microsoft Game Studios today announced that the eagerly awaited and innovative first-person shooter (FPS) Shadowrun has gone gold and will begin hitting retailers throughout North America on May 29.

From renowned developer FASA Studio, the team that brought you the Xbox LIVE launch title MechAssault., and the lead designer behind the original Halo, Shadowrun incorporates ancient magic and advanced technology into strategic and clever teambased gameplay for an unparalled combat experience.

Utilizing both the Xbox LIVE and Games For Windows LIVE network, Shadowrun tears down the walls between friends and gamer communities on the Xbox 360 and Windows Vista-based PC by letting as many as 16 gamers play together, regardless of platform*. Not only does Shadowrun bring these communities together, it also extends the features gamers love on Xbox LIVE, such as gamertags, achievements, friends lists and integrated voice communication, onto the PC through Games for Windows LIVE. Shadowrun is optimized for a multiplayer online experience which requires an Xbox LIVE Gold account on Xbox 360 or Silver account on Games for Windows LIVE.

Shadowrun will ship with nine unique maps and an additional three map variations, showcasing dynamic environments set in a futuristic Santos, Brazil, and its neighboring, ancient Ziggurat. Shadowrun includes six training chapters, allowing gamers the opportunity to fine-tune their strategy and lethal combinations against the intuitively smart and talented A.I. bots. Gamers can also play with bots at four levels of difficulty on every map and with every game type.

After a 5,000-year absence, magic has returned to the world of Shadowrun. It is 2031 and global corporations battle a relentless ancient order to harness this reawakened power. Be a part of the RNA, a global mega-corporation, and bring order (and profit) to a world of chaos. Or join the Lineage to keep magic wild and free at all costs. Choose a side and wage war for the future of magic in the new world of Shadowrun. Players vie for supremacy in an intense FPS experience, in the Shadowrun universe, that rewards cleverness, cunning and split-second improvisation through a unique combination of modern weapons, ancient magic and advanced technology.

Humans, elves, dwarves and trolls, can pick up Shadowrun for the estimated retail price of $59.99 for Xbox 360 and $49.99 for Windows Vista. Shadowrun is rated M for Mature, for gamers 17 years old and above.

* Cross-platform play requires either an Xbox LIVE Gold account or a Games for Windows LIVE Gold account and hard drive.

I wish they would be honest in the pricing seeing as though you have to *cough* 'upgrade' *cough* to WinVista in order to play it. Shouldn't this be more along the lines of $449.99?

Fucking A, you're stupid, dude.
First of all, the OEM or system builder editions of Windows Vista are MUCH cheaper than $400. Please do some research. kthx.
Secondly, if you're stupid enough to factor in the cost of the OS then you might as well factor in the cost of the hardware as well. Gaming PC = $1500. OMGWTFLOL... Shadowrun costs $1549!!!!11111oneelevenone!!! And a decent LCD TV costs at least $1000 so the X360 version costs $1059 OMGWTFLOL!!!!!

Jeez you're retarded...
