PC Gamer almost always get screwed for multi-platform releases, either by late release dates, shoddy ports or both.
I can't argue with the shoddy ports thing, but these days PC games come out simultaneously with their console counterparts so the publisher doesn't need to run ads for that version of the game. And since this game is part of a major publicity build up to STID, I'd think that Paramount would push Namco Bandai to get the PC version out the door with the others.

How can you get the PC version without the download?

Not being very good with game controllers, I'll have to wait for the PC version. Am gutted it'll be "download only" as if you're going to pay £25+ for a game, the very least I'd like is a box to put in my book case to add to the collection!

This is gettign VERY close to being almost too exciting for me now, with game and new movie out almost simultaneously!

Oh well, found it on Amazon for less than the PS3 price, and they'll match prices if they decrease it closer to release date. I always wait for ages before buying a new game toget it cheaper, but with this being the first decent looking Trek game in over a decade - worth splashing out!

Lucky. Amazon US has nothing for the PC version.

I wish we could have a mass effect or deus ex style RPG/shooter/adventure in the star trek universe.

This is a shooter. I don't think there's going to be any RPG/adventure elements, though. At least, that's not my understanding from what we've seen so far...

The combat is a shooter, but apparently there's some exploration of the Enterprise and possibly puzzle elements too.

I doubt we'll get an SDK - most games these days aren't intentionally designed with modding in mind and a co-op heavy game like this might be a bit too demanding for modders.

That said, it's weird that the UK has PC preorder links and the US doesn't. You guys might want to skim UK game store sites to see if they have hardware specs.
