It's not a port because it wasn't first designed for the consoles and then adapted for PC. Things could be different with Skyrim, but until we find out what engine it uses there's not much to discuss.
really? i seem to remember a "start" button, i remember small maps, i remember dx9...thats obviously enough for a good case that it WAS designed for consoles first.
anyways i once had hope for this game, now there is none. First they make it "more" like fallout, now they make it "more" like consoles, ill pass...guess blizzard is the only real PC dev anymore, that and those guys behind gothic...infact the gothic series was debatably better than tes ever since oblivion altho i must admit the only recent game ive played is risen and i could tell they still cared about pc because the consoles got shafted not us.
