PC.

...wasn't in the original question.

Mind, if your PC can handle it it's the platform I'd recommend, but the game WAS designed consoles first so it's not like Deus Ex 1 here where there's a significant loss on consoles, or even a markedly different experience.

I can't truly compare it since I haven't played it on the PC, but it plays damn well on the consoles and the control scheme is nice. The best thing on the PC seems to be the ability to assign inventory to quick keys and not having to deal with the menu wheel (I found it to be annoying it first since it wasn't explicit instating that you have to untoggle a consumable if it's accidentally selected). I'd say Xbox only because I like the triggers on the Xbox controller and you'll be using it a lot, but otherwise it doesn't matter much.

The console versions are very decent, only problem is the frame-rate when you get into big gunfights, it drops horribly. The performance videos remind me of Crysis 2 but fortunately not as bad. It wouldn't be as noticeable if they implemented motion blur but I guess they just couldn't. Otherwise it's pretty smooth and it looks great.
I highly recommend this game, if the idea of a MGS with rpg elements in a blade runner type setting sounds good to you...

If it uses L1/R1 for that (or lets you assign to those) then it's completely a matter of preference since both work roughly as well, I might actually give the nod to L1/R1 over LT/RT for shooting. If it uses L2/R2 however... that's still down to preference, and if you put triggers on the controllers, but I find it's not that ideal and I've not been satisfied with snap-on triggers when I've tried.

I'd like an honest answer. How likely are we to get a "GOTY" edition of this?

I'd really like to play it, but I'd rather wait and pick up that edition if there's going to be one.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

If there's another piece of DLC or two after The Missing Link, most likely. But even then, a GotY edition would be quite a ways off, like later next year. So.. can you wait that long? If not, just get it for cheap. It's been on sale enough, is $40 on Amazon right now ($50 augmented) and.. who knows, could get even cheaper during Black Friday/Christmas sales.

Depends on whether or not Eidos games go through the same shit SE games have. This is largely new really, so it could go either way. If you want to play it safe, wait a year, and if nothing shows up just get this.

Picked up PS3 augmented, thanks for the heads up!

I'm going to finish Uncharted, then play Team Ico then this.

That's exactly what I'm doing. UC2 better be tons better than the first.

It's a good looking game, but it is kinda meh. Especially the zombie dudes at the end. What the hell is that crap?
