Microsoft has announced that Alan Wake is now officially an Xbox 360 exclusive.

In a statement, a Microsoft spokesperson has said, "Some games are more suited for the intimacy of the PC, and others are best played from the couch in front of a larger TV screen. We ultimately realised that the most compelling way to experience Alan Wake was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive.

"Both Microsoft and Remedy have long histories in PC game development. This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform."

As we reported on Saturday, Alan Wake will be released in New Zealand on the 21st of May.
