It sort of seems impossible in the surface, but we like to remain optimistic for PlayStation 3 owners.

Yes, we all know Remedy's involvement with Microsoft concerning the Alan Wake IP means PS3 fans are out of luck. We're not quite familiar with all the details of that agreement, though, and after the recent Alan Wake announcement , some journalists and insiders are wondering: how should we interpret the words of Remedy franchise development chief Oskari Hakkinen?

"We are really excited about this project which a slice of our team has been working on for the last months. It's something that'll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this installment will also give an opportunity for players who aren't familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board ."

Okay, so maybe it can't mean anything outside of the Xbox 360 realm. Hakkinen could just be talking about the rest of the 360 crowd who didn't appreciate the first title…and God knows, there were a great many of those . But even so, there are a whole lot of questions out there, especially because we know next to nothing about this project. They say it isn't a sequel and it isn't just add-on content for the original.

Soooo…what is it?
