Okay guys, what platform we getting this on? I would imagine a lot of folks here are getting it and would like to coordinate this for maximum co-op funs.

Grace says that her vote is dependent on how co-op works.  If it allows for split-screen co-op then Xbox360 is obvious for us as it would let both her and I play with a single purchase of the game. 

Personally my vote is for PC as we'll be getting a 360 co-op game with Gears of War 3 very soon, having a PC co-op game (that's not an objectionable MMO or spamming LoL bots more) might not be bad for the overall health of game night - that and my general behavior remains "if it's a shooter, you buy it for PC if you can."

From what I've seen so far it doesn't sound like the console version will include local play at all, and the PC version will be steamworks enabled, which sound like PC arguments to me.

Still unless anyone is DYING to play this day one, my vote is kinda to wait until we know for sure to make the move (aka wait a day or two).  God knows with my big trip this weekend I won't have time to finish Deus Ex first and I'd really REALLY rather beat Deus Ex before I pick up another single player game.

EDIT: Went to Xbox.com and IT says that there's NO OFFLINE MULTIPLAYER for Space Marine (go to page two of the overview panel).  I throw my hat in with PC for sure then.

According to this Kotaku Article, Co-Op isn't even included at launch so yeah.... no rush?

Just finished the Demo of this.  By the Emperor was the demo FUN!  I can already tell I'm going to enjoy the hell out of that Co-Op mode when it drops.  You are both so powerful and so agile.  The shooting wasn't as satisfying as I'd hoped it'd be, but the close combat is AMAZING.

Highly recommend this for 40k fans.

The Co-Op mode will drop Oct. 25th, for those of you waiting on that.  I have a feeling I will be picking this up sooner.

I was very pleased to see that the Amazon purchase of Space Marine installed itself right into Steam without me having to do anything! Yay for 10 bucks cheaper and still Steam!

Works on Steam even after purchase at Amazon? Awesome. I'll take that for $40. Purchased.
