In the latest holiday issue of PC Gamer magazine, there is a Microsoft advertisement showing a retail display for the "Games for Windows" PC games. And what game is pictured on the lower shelf squeezed between the PC versions of Shadowrun
and Age of Empires III
? Gears of War
, you silly goose! This ad could just as well be "concept art" and just showing off Microsoft's big hitting video games, but why would they put a supposed Xbox 360 exclusive game like Gears of War
in that ad if it wasn't going to be part of their Games for Windows marketing campaign? I'm betting all my chips on Gears of War
coming to the PC in 2007, probably around August and only
playable on Vista. Playing Gears
on your PC, does that sound appealing to you?
