I wanna play this game and it's alot cheaper on Steam, is it good on PC? Does it looks as good as HD on 360?

the original beyond good and evil doesnt work properly on my computer.  if the hd version is coming on steam i'd say get that.  if not get the 360 version.  eventually there will be a new console and your 360 wont be hooked up any more.  pc is always relevant.

The PC version of Beyond Good and Evil is a little rough, at least on some computers.  On two separate machines, I had sound problems and graphical hitches that made the game a little irritating to try and play.  I'm not saying that it won't work but there is always that chance it might not.  I ended up waiting to play the XBLA version when it came out and it was worth it; that version is much cleaner and works beautifully. 
 
Graphically, I would say that the PC version may(?) come close to the XBLA version, but I still think that version looks better.

I played Beyond Good and Evil on PC when it first came out but I bet it works better on XBLA (in termes of control)

I would feel safer buying it on a console.  You know that it won't be fucked up on a console.  On the PC it is a bit hairy.

For simplicity's sake, just get the 360 version. That being said, I didn't mind the few hoops it took to get the steam version running perfectly.

PS: The HD Live version is near identical to the PC one if you have a decent comp.

The PC version has no way to invert the mouse's y-axis, so if you play inverted, you're shit out of luck.  (There's an "invert camera" option, but it flips the y- AND x-axis, for some reason.)

I'd say the Live version. The game can be wonky on certain PCs like someone said (it works for me, but there was an issue with sound). Also, the controls are pretty bad and there's no way to get a gamepad to work (I could be wrong about this, it's been a while).

The PC version is pretty wonky, which has lead to me not playing more than an hour of it. A shame because I really want to.

I'd go for the 360 version, but only because there's a greater guarantee that it will run.

Definitely XBLA, the PC version is a piece of crap. You can get it to run pretty well after messing around with it a bunch, but even then you have to use the awful PC controls or use some kind of outside application to fake gamepad support. Not recommended at all.

I bought the game new for $10 for the Xbox back in the day.  Is it just an HD remake or is there new shit?
