We can only hope that this is a sign of things to come - the death of PC/Mac gaming. Man, that would be awesome.

In all seriousness, it really isn't a huge deal that this isn't coming to PC/Mac. The iPhone version is a cute distraction with some interesting new ideas (some work, some don't) about how to make games for a touch screen system with virtually no buttons.

But the PS3/360 versions are yet another 3rd party action adventure game that isn't terrible, but isn't good either. In fact, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if I never heard the game mentioned again after Oct. 1, 2008. There are about 1,000,000,000 games out there better than this one, and for $60, it just isn't worth anyone's time (unlees of course you are Star Wars superfan #1, a lonely, pathic shut in or an alcoholic who doesn't know any better).

It all boils down to one thing - the game is out, it isn't very good and the disappointed masses should just move on and wait for the next huge letdown.

If it's better than Jedi Academy, then it's worth buying to me. And you must have a realllly crappy PC if you hate PC gaming and/or think it should die out >=|.

Yeah... I'd probably never buy a PC - I'm a Mac guy. I like my laptops to, you know, work (also, PCs just aren't capable of handling a lot of Mac graphic design programs).

Here is the thing. When I buy a PS3, 360 or anything else game, I am 1000% sure that when I get it home, it will play in whichever system it is meant to play on. When you buy PC/Mac games, no such guarantee exists. This leads to expensive graphics cards, memory and everything else under the sun. When you find out that - oops - the game you just payed for doesn't work on your computer, you are pretty much out of luck.

I'll stick with consoles, just like I have for the past 25 years.

Yup, this is a troll post... PCs are 100x better, can perform audio and video and 3D rendering out the ass like no Mac could ever hope to do, as well as being able to actually run 99% of all programs, games, and all kinds of crap. And you know those 2000 dollar Mac desktops and Mac laptops? You can get a PC with the same specs for 800 bucks, and have everything run much better. gg Apple.

And don't even bring up the "Apple gets no viruses" because other than the big likelihood that there are at least a few out there if you're not careful enough, there are little to none viruses for Apple computers because they're worthless. Programmers don't waste their time making viruses for crappy ass computers that important people don't even use.

Big corporations like using the best computers, such as PC server computers with 64 bit so they can run 32-128 gb of ram and all kinds of crap. Macs can't even dream of handling that much hardware at this day and age. Not even close.
