Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PC edition will be considered after launch

When Konami originally announced Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance at E3 2009 under the more sensible name of Metal Gear Solid: Rising, it had planned to release a PC edition. This notion was casually dropped when the game was reborn at PlatinumGames, but now Konami has said it'll "contemplate" making a PC port after it launches the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions.
"Right now, honestly, we are doing our best to complete at the same time the PlayStation 3 version and the Xbox 360 version," creative producer Yuji Korekado told Eurogamer. "For the PC version, we will contemplate making it or not once we reach this goal of completing the PS3 and 360 versions."
Korekado asked EG whether there was much of a demand for a PC version of Revengeance, who presumably nodded furiously and babbled yesses, leading him to respond, "Then, with that in consideration, we will try to look forward in this direction."
He also explained why there's no Vita version, saying that Revengeance's slice-dicey swording tech "requires a lot of hardware power, which is only possible with the power of a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360." There had been no hint of a Vita version but, you know, it's nice to ask.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 on February 19, 2013.
