Interesting. Mirror's Edge is listed as a PC release in the US, but the Wikipedia page and IGN both say that the windows version's release date is still undetermined.



Is there a typo in this article, or is it stealthily being released?

Amazon has the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions set to ship this week (November 11th), and the PC version is set for Jan 6, 2009. Perhaps the PC release in this list is a typo.

To my knowledge, EA has specifically not set a release date. A lot of sites (especially sites that take preorders, like Amazon) have speculated some time in January, but that's them guessing. (if I've got my facts straight)

Thanks, we've fixed the typo.
