Any Info on the PC version?

Apart from sites such as GB stating that there will be a PC release, I haven't been able to find any information on it, such as when it will be released. 
 
By the looks of things it'll be one of those "released 6 months later" deals.

Well, the last game that Propaganda Games made was Turok for the 360 and PS3 so chances are its going to be a sloppy port job. Then, because its Disney it will be released day and date and will never be patched ever. 
So if I were to guesstimate out of thin air - Don't bother.

Unlike its console counterparts, it will have Jeff Bridges.

Split/Second was also a Disney joint and while not an ideal port, it ran well enough even if most people complained that they couldn't 'max' it out (no in game AA settings but ultra mode quality automatically applied a metric shit-tonne to the scene which destroyed most GPUs). 
 
At least they get released on PC in a timely fashion - showing up Ubisoft there. As long as I can run 'bad ports' at my native res, I can usually forgive the rest as long as the game's playable. Not an ideal world but better than having to miss out on wanted games.

Amazon has the PC version for $30. That's half the price of the console ones.

you want cheaper? go to bestbuy tomorrow. it's only $29.99. normal price $39.99.  
I will grab it tomorrow.  
system requirement is lower. I assume that most people here have very high end machine. so we can easily max it out for video setting just like split second.

Also, Games for Windows Live achievements on the PC version, in case that appeals to you.

@drhans: Indeed it does. Hmmmm.  $30 is a good price too.
I just cancelled my 360 order because Amazon.ca is being weird about the release date (Dec 30th??).  And I think by Boxing Day this might be kind of easy to find cheaper.   Metacritic is being weird too.  They have a score based on 6 critics, but no actual reviews appearing.  GB got to publish a week early, and other sites like GT haven't published at all yet; and their videos have no music?
 
Sorry, JohnnyV, I really wanted to support the game at launch, but things like quality and availability seem to be conspiring against it.

@Brackynews: I actually ended up playing the whole game start to finish just now (on the PC). It was good, I enjoyed it, but I paid $29 bucks at Best Buy. That's about the right price for it. I wouldn't have paid $60. Still, worth playing, even if you end up renting it from Redbox or something.

Anyone know if the achievements for PC and Xbox are separate, like Fallout 3?
