PC master race skewered. Because this game will require direct x 15.0 to run along with 8 screens while we play it on Console before them.

What r the odds it goes next gen like fall of 2014. This game itself will stop so many ppl from selling current gen consoles though!
allgamespc2012  +   596d ago
next gen on pc son. limited ram edition on ps3, thats why theres a beta for consoles to test it. well have 60 fps while you will hope you dont go below 30.

I'm planning on waiting for a PS4 version, so hopefully that happens at some point. Don't know why allgames got the disagrees though. Current consoles will stutter and PCs equipped with the proper setup will cruise along at 60 frames. This is how it's always been. If that weren't the case, why do we console owners invest in new technology every 5-7 years? Oh that's right, because eventually we are not able to run new games at stable framerates with decent image quality, hence the upgrade.

I think it's time to start an online petition for Dark Souls 2 to go next gen. That's how they got it on PC.

@bigtrucknd

The console people already have that petition

DoctorJones  +   597d ago
That's ok, I'm happy to let others help iron out the bugs. I'm just looking forward to playing the superior finished version when it's finished.

And that superior version won't be on the ps3, that's just the test bed.

Just joking btw. Kinda.

kingduqc  +   597d ago
Sad thing, I'd like to play the beta on mah pc

Sending off the PS3 in style. Paying homage to where the Souls series started (talking about Demon Souls)

You will not hear any grief from me. As a PC gamer, I am just happy we even get to play it. PS3 owners deserve the exclusivity. Heck, give them a head start if you want to. Just make sure that all versions are optimized, respective to the platform.

Just for that civil comment bro, I hope somehow you win a free copy when the game comes out.
saint_seya  +   597d ago
I like this kind of comments, if only everyone was like you.
Get a bubble for well said :)

Ok, well at least it IS coming to PC eventually. Fine by me.

As a Sony beta test member, I'm automatically in this beta. :D

Aww, seems two people are jealous.

Since DkS2 is being developed on the PC first.. I am glad they are doing the beta test on PS3! Nobody wants the PS3 to have the worst version again (in terms of performance). Hopefully this beta test can iron out some issues (if any) before the release. I am confident the 360/PC versions will be just fine.. Just make sure the PS3 version is on the same page!

Playstation wins again. How does it feel, mustard race and xdrones?
PurpHerbison  +   596d ago
I fail to see how beta testing a souls game on a platform that recently had the worst performance with the previous souls game is winning... 2/10
