Xbox 360 Developer rights
In November 2007 GSC acquired Xbox 360 developer rights. They now have permission to make games for the Xbox 360. In September 2009 GSC announced that it will port S.T.A.L.K.E.R. to the consoles (360, possibly PS3, Wii, and PSP) but only after Call of Pripyat comes out because of the lack of man-power in GSC.
