    PC is your only man.

    a) because it doesnt cost 70 quid
    b) because it'll be more future proofed with the addition of mods etc. Some of which may be available for the 360 but nowhere need the volume for the pc.

    I like the pc I do but i would have to say 360 ftw

    1. If you're going playing for 8 hours straight (and you will) I'd rather be on the couch.
    2. Its guaranteed to run on the 360 but may not run on your PC
    3. The controller is better for combat in my opinion than a keyboard and mouse.

    Its great on both, honestly. Ive played both and while I much prefer mouse + keyboard, it actually works perfectly on the XBox controller too.
    If you have a high end PC, I say go that way. If not, go XBox.

    I got it on the xbox because otherwise i would need to pump in 700-800 euros on a new graphics card, mobo, proc and ram (no sense in doing things half-arsed) to get my comp up to a good spec again. My current spec could run the game but would be nowhere near as pretty as the xbox version (barton 2800, 512 pc2700, 9700u).

    Played it on both.
    I dont have 360 but do have a killer pc.
    Xbox has noticeable slowdown and framerate issues,my pc version doesnt.
    However if i was to really get into this game [so far im struggling to :( ] sprawled infront of the 28" LCD on a 360 would be nice :)
