What do you think? Its apparent that although the game was born on the PC, the devs no longer care about this fan-base:
"Edwards: It's being developed primarily for the Xbox, but it's also coming to PC and PS2 [and GameCube]. But it's important to note that it's being developed from a console point of view. Now we're trying to make it the ultimate experience for the Xbox player."
Its not just the 3rd person view in the E3 video that worries me, everything about the game looks like its aimed squarely at the short-attention span console audience. Maybe we should hit UBI where it hurts and boycott it unless they start taking the PC version seriously and keep the features that made GR so good.
