No PC Dead Space 2

Those EA Financials from earlier had one last surprise, as the listing for Dead Space 2 in their Fiscal Q4 2011 has the entries for consoles and handhelds ticked off, but there is no mark under PC. We inquired if this meant the PC edition was coming at a later date not reflected on that schedule, and were told by EA public relations that: "As of right now a PC sku is not in the plan." Our requests for an explanation went unanswered, so we don't know the reasons for the change. On a related note, the remainder of that Dead Space 2 teaser image is now online.

Why the fuck are you guys surprised? They cant protect the products, people steal it, if they had a steam id system like Valve they could protect the content from pirates slightly better, but if you release the PC game people steal it, and you know it effects the console sales.

Even Ubisoft is trying to force the buyers of a product to login before they can play it as its the only system that is working at the moment to keep pirates from getting a free ride.

PC gaming isn't dead because of MMO's which also force you to login, which is where they are getting this model data from. I know many people buy the game but this is about 80% of the people playing games on the PC that don't, and the billions lost every year that has caused almost all PC game makers to move toward a console model, including MS, why keep spending on QA, and support for a targert device that has many flavors which makes it harder and cost more, when 80% of the people you are building the game for are going to steal it.
