You would get a free PS4. You never know. He might wish you were the son he never had?
Now that would be pretty strange.

Dark souls and demon souls whilst being spiritually linked are completely different IP, dark souls and of course the sequel is multi plat. However, demon souls is owned by Sony so a demons souls 2 would be an exclusive

Remove the great atmosphere and add shinny happy people all around and you make Demon's Souls Dark Souls.

Then again, despairing vs silly pretty much defines the difference in the worlds created.

Can't wait for a real sequel, not a game where all dialogues end with laughter.

I loved Demon's Souls and Dark Souls a lot. I would definitely be excited for a direct sequel to Demon's Souls on PS4.

Do others invade your system and try and kill your saves? lol

Trophy thieving would be amusing.

Imagine if Sony made a conceptual platformer based around the PS4 UI and you could opt in and defend your collection of Trophies.

Fury ensues.

If someone stole my Kingdom Hearts Final Mix HD platinum and save, I'd sacrifice my heart so I could make my Nobody and beat up that thief!

No God of War 3 on your top ten Shu?! Clearly he is an Xbox fanboy. /s
ShaunCameron  +   617d ago
I'm of the opinion that Demon's Souls was the PS3's unsung hero and one of its most important games of its catalog.
HighResHero  +   617d ago
One of my all-time favorites. Here's to hoping the sequel will really capture the essence of Boletaria.
DeadMansHand  +   616d ago
Souls are great games but for me Demons was just so good it sucked me in for hours at a time. From those damn rolly-polly skeletons to the entire level of the tower of Latvia it just oozed atmosphere and dread. I literally took one step at a time and was scared to go in every clouded doorway. I was constantly going on YouTube to see what the heck was about to kill me. When I did have plentiful souls I was a scared rabbit just frozen in place, too scared to move and risk losing it all.

Great game.

Oddly enough I was just saying to others on Warframe how the game reminds me of Demons Souls. The farming and the lonliness and the teamwork. Great stuff.

Demons Souls was probably the greatest game I have ever played through. Truly epic. Dark S was superb too, but it was lacking something.

I truly love these games and I am very much looking forward to the next. Keep em coming. Any game which is cerebral and difficult with tons of mod options in character creation, coupled with random invading and teamwork, must continue to be published.

Great thinking Mr Yoshida
