I wanted to chime in here. We are very happy with the sales and hitting #1 on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing. We recouped our development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours. And yes, we're certainly very excited about PC.
There is no vagueness in this statement. I can see why Remedy would be excited about the PC port. These sales make quite the statement towards companies who leave PC out of which platforms they release on.
