EA Ditching Plans for PC Version of Dead Space 2

It seems that the PC versions of console games are getting less common. The first Dead Space enjoyed a higher-resolution stint on the PC while equally entertaining gamers on the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3. Sadly, the sequel doesn't appear to be hitting the PC, as it wasn't listed in the company's Fiscal Q4 2011 schedule.

Blue's News inquired regarding the omission, and was told by EA public relations that: "As of right now, a PC sku is not in the plan."

This would put Dead Space onto the list along with Halo, Gears of War and some of the EA Sports games.

It's another sad day for PC gamers.

    Was it something we said? Or is it all the complaints about that secuROM thingy.

    EA dumps the very people who made them in the first place. Why am I not surprised?

    That puts EA off my shopping lists.

    XZaaprycaThe PC is only one part of the EA picture. I used to play EA titles on Commodore64, Apple IIe and even Amiga back in the 80's. Dumping PC for the next generation of hot gaming platforms isn't a surprise to me. This is just the standard MO for EA and corporations in general. Look at all the other companies that started here and then dumped us to hire cheaper people elsewhere. There will always be someone making games for PC, we'll play those games.

    The problem with this statement is that there is no "next generation of hot gaming platforms" out there. The PC is still king for "real" gaming.
