subs are like humble indie bundle, compilations of games, etc

apps are the games itself. you can see alan wake was just added if you scroll a bit.
 
They were hinting at this a couple of days ago.

JPS said:
During an interview with a Finnish website YLEX Remedy’s Aki Järvilehto commented on a PC version of Alan Wake saying:

We have received feedback from a lot of PC gamers, and I have to admit that yes, we somehow ignored that. Let’s see if in the near future we could have some positive news to tell you about dating!

Heh, after this long, I never would have expected it to make it's way to PC. This is good news if true, I enjoyed it on 360 and I'm down to play it again on PC.

I would very much like to see how pretty the game is at 1080p. Just be a decent port, please...

As I said in the other thread, this is most likely bait so new people get into the AW franchise, while MS release Alan Wake 2 as an Xbox 3 exclusive. At least, I wouldn't put it past them, it'd be a smart move.

Finally an HD version!

Tried playing AW on 360 the other day, I had to turn that shit off. Looks awful.

I've been using my PC as a 360 for the last six months. 52" tv, 360 controller, comfy couch. I'm spoiled.

I've been looking forward to Alan Wake back when it was announced when I actually owned a 360, so this'll be great.

About time. It's a pretty good game that sold too poorly, it's better that they bring it to Steam for some more possible sales.

I bet system requirements will be fairly low. MP1 and 2 ran great on even modest machines at the time.

I played and enjoyed AW on 360 ( other than the game going into "wtf-mode" in the end".
Can't wait to play this on my pc, also please give us the DLC/expansion as well.

It can barely hold 30fps at 540p on 360, you should probably expect it to be more demanding than the average console game.

I poo pooed AW on 360 a bit for not being HD (lolz) and dat tearing. I later got over it and love the game.

Don't think I'll double dip as i'm confident my notebook would run it more or less at what the 360 runs it at 'cept at a higher resolution and vsync (I cap most of my PC games @ 30fps anyway). Not worth shelling out another $50 just for that.

Yeah, I suspect that too. People are understimating how good this game will look on PC.
I'm sure it will but I don't want to hear my Asus G78jw jet engine fan during the quieter bits. Great laptop, shitty cooling system. Then again, it could be the Nvidia GPU not being 45nm or less? I dunno, stuffs over my head and don't wanna look it up.

I hate that Microsoft releases PC ports way after their console versions and then wonders why the sales are poor. How about you release a fucking PC version WITH the console version.

A lot of people would have bought the PC version over 360 but it's too late now.
