Some of these seem pretty logical; stuff that's removed from Steam maintains its registry entries, for re-download purposes and so stuff like the box art in the client is kept behind the scenes after the thing is removed.

We know Skullgirls is getting a PC port.

DayZ standalone will be using Steamworks (it was confirmed), TERA is still on Steam, but it only released in Europe, Age of Conan was on Steam, but pulled when Funcom went F2P (I'm guessing with the success of Secret World on Steam, they'll bring it back), and Skullgirls was announced as a Steamworks title last year.

Remember, it is already a PC game.

The arcade cab is just a PC, and you can run that version on your home PC if you look for it.

We'll be lucky if it has online at all.

If it happened I bet the most likely result would be a horrible GFWL version with the same shit netcode.

I have no idea why Microsoft hates PC. That's another way for them to make money and in their "console wars" war, it still benefits them. On any other forum games like Witcher 2 are considered exclusive for some reason.

I reckon Steam is used like PartnerNet on 360, where development builds can be spread using the network, maybe just Steamworks titles? Would explain SR4 and Homefront 2 being on the system, as we know they're in development.

Let me just add a little color commentary on this:
- Tons of stuff has been leaked through the Steam database before
- Typically when a company doesn't want stuff to leak, because it's pre-mature, they label their game as ValveTestApp, so it can't be identified
- For some reason, all these ValveTestApp games have Steam Community hubs, where they are NOT labeled ValveTestApp, but instead have actual names.

and it'd be logical for their entries to be updated or re-submitted in light of the publisher being transferred after the THQ stuff...

I have a feeling that we're going to see at least a token amount of PC ports for their next-gen games. Windows 8 exclusive, of course.

I wonder why they even let us see the entries. They could be all named "TestApp 42314" and it would effectively prevent anyone from leaking stuff.

I bet someone at Valve is just putting up random entries because he's tired of people looking stuff up.

It is used the same way. If you look Beta section of the Properties option of Steam, you'll see entries for Development builds on games on Steam.

Surely they wouldn't be that stupid again? Making Shadowrun and Halo 2 vista exclusive was one of the biggest mistakes ever. Even with Halo 2 being a 3 year port, it would have sold more

I already responded to this one; FF7 showed up when Eidos signed with Steam, it's pretty clear they did intend or try to release it, there were some technical concerns, and since then there are pretty much no other examples of this kind of thing happening. When stuff is added to the registry, it's because people intend to release it. The only difference this time around is the odd disjoint behaviour between the registry and the community hubs, implying it might be a change to community hubs.

Well 4 was just released not too long ago, they wouldn't want to detract from the sales on 360.

Another supporting point is that eventually Final Fantasy 7 was indeed re-released on PC, simply on a different distribution platform. So it's a clear sign that there is an intention to have an actual product, even if plans change along the way.

Blame gamers and the game press for telling them that 360 doesn't have any exclusives. Next generation the same is going to happen.

It's insane that low selling exclusive get praised, because they are exclusive. They could have boosted the sales and companies would have stayed afloat, but no it has to be exclusive. Insane.

KOF XIII would be great. I'd double-dip.

The game already runs on Windows, because the arcade hardware is just a revision of Taito Type-X. Isn't there an arcade version with the PS3/360 improvements included? They could tighten that up, add in some menus, netcode and a configuration app and bam, stick it on Steam for 10 or something. They'd be crazy not to. The arcade version of game will get pirated eventually if it hasn't been already and then they've lost out.

We already know Skullgirls is getting a PC release, and Steam is highly likely, so...
