Gears of War PC Follow-up

BeyondUnreal has a quote from Epic's Mark Rein about speculation that Gears of War will appear on the PC (story) as well as the Xbox 360 (thanks Tiscali Games). Mark throws some cold water on the prospect, likening any PC version of the game to the port of Halo, which came to PCs significantly after the Xbox version:
Gears of War is an Xbox360 exclusive. We're developing it specifically to take advantage of the power and features of the console. All of the work on Gears between now and when we ship is toward creating the ultimate Xbox360 game.

Could we, in the future, adapt Gears for Windows just as Microsoft did with Halo? Sure we could and, as you can see from J Allard's comments, Microsoft is clearly cool with that idea. But we're a long way off from thinking about that. Right now our only goal is to make Gears one of the "must have" titles for Xbox360 and judging by reaction to our relatively early showing at E3 we're well on our way toward achieving that. One major web site, 1UP.com, already voted us their Best Xbox360 Game in their Best of E3 roundup!

Doesn't look that much different from a dozen other games that are coming out. The 3rd person combat is a major detractor if you're making a shooting-oriented game.
