Dark Souls 2’ director changes stance on potential PS4 and Xbox One ports

Yui Tanimura has changed his stance regarding the potential PS4 and Xbox One ports of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Dark Souls 2.” In an interview with Eurogamer on Sept. 19, the game disclosed that he and the rest of his colleagues at From Software has not “rule out” the action role-playing title appearing for the two next-generation systems down the road. (Dark Souls, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

That'll be intersting to see this game on next gen consoles.

Agreed, I'd absolutely love this on the PS4!!
Game4life  +   747d ago
I'd buy it again

I was going to wait a while before getting a ps4 until there was a good selection of games for it.

If Dark Souls II goes to ps4 I'll buy a ps4 just to play Dark Souls II on it.

Given that a PC version is allready in the making, a next-gen console version shouldn't be too hard to make. All depends on possible sales on those new platforms.

Indeed, i'm really grateful that Next-gen shares the same architecture as PCs
Grave  +   747d ago
looks like Ill be getting 3 separate copies then.

I certainly hope From ends up doing it, I'd prefer to buy games for next gen over current gen systems.

Someone doesn't think you actually like what you said you like.
mav805  +   747d ago
Lol, oh well.

I figure even with minimum enhancements we could get better framerate and textures on next-gen.
JP1369  +   747d ago
I'm waiting and hoping for next-gen versions of both GTA 5 and DS2. All I care for is better frame rates and draw distances. GTA 5 especially looks like it could benefit from more memory to cure that texture pop-in.

If going by potential next console sales it could actually be a good move to release on next gen consoles! I for one don't believe it's going to impact this gens console sales, if anything I think it'll boost next gen console sales.

We can all pretty much expect cross gen versions of games from now going forward. Based on preorders alone, devs must see the potential. Anyone buying a next gen console obviously wants games for it so they WILL sell.

I know I will wait for a ps4 Dark Souls 2 game. The upgraded graphics and fps is defiantly worth it. Besides, nothing can be worse than the wait from the announcement of ps4 to Nov 15th, anyway. Nothing.

He saw the pre order numbers

Hope so, seeing as how my 360 and PS3 are both going bye bye when the next systems come out this November. Don't understand how great games like this and Batman weren't already being considered for next gen, but horrible games like assassin's creed is being developed for all consoles.
Campy da Camper  +   747d ago
I agree AC 3 was pretty bad. That said, I really liked the naval battles. So, if Black Flag focuses heavily on naval battles and hunting AND gets rid of the lame ass escort/chase missions and goes back to, you know, assassinating people then it could turn out great.

Assassin's creed 2>Batman arkham city & Dark Souls.

Edit: Demon's Souls is a different story.

Omg one of my favorite. Series going next gen, hope so,
KontryBoy706  +   747d ago
I wish Rockstar would say something like this
MicDude  +   747d ago
I was already planning on picking this up in March. If a next gen port is on the way, I may just wait for that.
kingduqc  +   746d ago
Not really interested into next gen release of dark souls 2 since I'm already getting the best version (pc) but it's nice if the franchise can be on more platofrorm so people can enjoy it too.
