The lights are on
The XBLA Summer of Arcade version of the game is still on track, but PC players will have to wait nearly a month.
The news comes via a post at Joystiq, where the website spoke with Ubisoft and learned that the PC version of the upcoming god game will release on August 17th. Meanwhile, the 360 release is still planned for this Wednesday. It's unfortunate news (especially for PC players), but not particularly surprising. Microsoft seems to like to keep the Summer of Arcade games as exclusives on 360 whenever possible, or at least have them as timed exclusives. A similar event happened last year with Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, which released first as part of 360's Summer of Arcade, and several weeks later on PC and PSN.
From Dust was originally announced for PS3 as well, but there's no current word on a release date for that system.Are you going to play Ubisoft's From Dust? On which platform do you hope to create all those volcanoes and rivers?

wanted to grab this on pc since no net for 360 (kinda) now might just wait for psn now :/
Lucky for me, I've been waiting for this on 360! Definitely one of the most unique games I've ever seen.
I intend to purchase for 360... though now I find myself wondering what the PC version may offer in terms of community or expansion down the road.
Hey look the pc gamers got screwed over again!!! Anyway just read about this I might get it, you know after it finally releases
SON OF A BLEEP
I'll be busy waiting for PSN. Hopefully that also releases on August 17th. also looking forward for Journey and Payday: the Heist.
What am I going to play now... I was waiting for this... PC always get screwed over... -.-
I really wanted this on the PS3... but if not then PC
that sucks for pc players but im gonna definitely check this out on wednesday
PS3 would be better, but PC is alright.
"No word on PS3"? That's bull! I was absolutely looking forward to this game... so if it doesn't show up on PS3, I'll have to grab the month-late PC version. And mutter curses at Microsoft whether or not it's really their fault.
