But if you want to that this interesting game go out in PC, the boys of Relic give you a small hope.They have opened a collected of signatures that, if it has the feedback necessary (in principle arrive to the 10,000 signatures), would pose develop a version for compatible of this Space Marine.

Heya Fetter88, Welcome to LO.
As this topic is pertaining to upcoming game news, and not the Space Marine Warhammer 40K table-top army, it belongs in the Rumors, News and Previews section.
Sorry im new here. Thanks for moving
Not to hate on people who are JUST PC gamers but, because I'm a ps3, x360 and PC gamer I would rather then not bother with the PC and just focus on the console market for this title.
The more units they produce(the PC portion of the game) the more units they have to sell in order to make the game successful. I feel in this instance it's more important for them to try to make this game successful so we get more "good" action oriented 40k games. As opposed to the strategy games that 40k pretty much soley has.
So again, sorry to people who are strictly PC gamers but, I have consoles as well and will intentionally not be signing this. Don't worry though, I'm sure there are 9,999 people out there other than me that want it on PC as much as you.
I may have signed it. Not entirely sure how that petition works.
Having never forked out for a console, I would be interested in seeing this on PC. Though my current machine probably won't run it
Maybe a console is the way to go...
Ohh for this to not come out on PC would be...a poor move to say the least. I just imagine that most 40K enthusiasts would be more PC orientated rather than console based, or at least have a PC and one console maybe. There'll be a big player base who had fun in the various Dawn Of Wars on the PC, any of those fans who also like action games would be a potential customer. I certainly will be, even if it doesn't work on my PC as it is right now, I'll be updating it soon enough.
This game does not look that much fun, and I got the DS 40k game!
If it appears on the PC I will consider picking it up, but I won't be going out of my way to get it there.

'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
I'm mostly disturbed by the obvious trend gaming companies have shown in ignoring the market that got them started, the PC gamers. While I can understand that consoles are clearly much simpler to design games for (they all have the same hardware, so no issues there), that doesn't mean that they should leave PC gamers out in the cold...or even worse, just port a console game to a PC and call it done (despite the inferior performance and lack of customisability that is inherant in consoles).
Is it my fault that a lack of super-nintendo, and an excess of PC use, when young, means that I just can't get the hang of the damned controllers? Should this really mean that I can no longer play the latest games, when I can get performance of at least twice that of the PS3 out of my custom built gaming rig?
They should design games they way they used to (ie back in the days of COD4), build it for PC and then dumb it down for consoles and their owners.

I'd rather they make a good game only available on console than a mediocre game available on both platforms.
Then again, the game looks pretty meh.

Mr_Wayne: "Some people believe that the World Eaters do not field any ranged weaponry. Those people often die at a distance."
However, since this looks more like a first-person shooter (or first-person melee, more accurately), I doubt the command system will be THAT difficult to port over. Either you use WASD+mouse to move and look, or you use the thumbstick. Developers have figured out how to seamlessly make a game that uses either or for years. Ditto with most other FPS/FPM games (inventory selection, jump, special attack, etc).
No, if (or, I think, when) this game fails, it won't be due to platform conflicts. It will be due to the idea that this is, well, not very interesting. The visuals are fine, heck better than fine (gotta love the Aquilae doing low-altitude flybys), but the gameplay is "meh." You're a marine. You're walking through the hallway/down the stairs/(insert mind-numbingly linear progression track). Oh, look, it's some chaos badguys. Let's shoot them, or better yet, run up and do some button-mashing. Whew! That was close! Now, let's... keep walking.
Add to that the idea that the developers have outright said that they spent more time on the close combat code than the shooting, so the game will be fun if you want to run up and lay the smackdown on the NPCs Tekken-style, but if you like cycling through the guns and picking stuff off from a distance, you're kinda out of luck. Heck, if they wanted a close-combat game featuring the 40k universe, they should have made him an assault marine, or at least given him lightning claws, a chainsword. Maybe the full version will, but all I remember seeing is a dude with a bolter. Fun. When, oh when are they going to produce a Battlefront-style 40k game? Now THAT I'd pay real money for!
But hey, they'll slap a multiplayer version on it, and marine fanbois will go nuts and crash XBox Live with it. After all, that's what's important, right? I mean, sheesh, who needs a SINGLE player experience?*
