Please please please!
stuna1  +   272d ago
Pretty please!

The thought of it being in Full HD 1080p 60FPS just makes my mouth water.

'The thought of it being in Full HD 1080p 60FPS just makes my mouth water.'

Well I'll be doing just that when it hits pc, good luck for the ps4 and xbox1 versions.
frostypants  +   272d ago
Read the article...it pretty much flat out says it's not happening. Which sucks. Also, the headline is misleading...saying "discussions for ports never happened" is kind of the opposite of ports being discussed.

Yea because Dark Souls I on PC was such a gem....
MEsoJD  +   272d ago
It's coming out on PC so....
DoctorJones  +   272d ago

After the mod to change resolution it certainly was. I have 228 hours of play on Steam out of it, although I also had over 100 hours on the ps3 before I bought it for pc, so over 300 hours between the two platforms.

Can't wait for the sequel.

dont forget 720p on xbox one /s

Every PC elitist like you deserves to get such a virus that it burns down your rig to knock you off your high horse.

Seriously, why the fuck do you PC guys need to provoke console gamers constantly?? Yeah, we know that PC is the most powerful out there but maybe less than 10% of you can actually afford PCs that can run games on full 1080p with 60fps let alone what you guys started bragging now about, 4K gaming.

PC is all powerful yet it's missing a lot of the biggest games ever released because they are console exclusive.

So how about you PC elitists shut the fuck up once and for all and stop provoking everyone you see. You are no better than an 8 year old with a nintendo ds.

I'll post what I like, don't tell me what to do. And I was replying to stuna1 saying Dark Souls 2 in 1080p 60fps made his mouth water, I'm looking forward to playing it like that as well. I know I'm going to be able to, but I hope console gamers get that chance as well.

I was stating facts Ares.

And can you not swear so much please, 8 year old children with ds's may be reading. Thank you.
MoonConquistador  +   271d ago
Well said Doctor Jones, you put him back in his place without coming across as infantile or derogatory.

Ares, you could learn a thing or two from an 8 year old with a Nintendo by the sounds of, chill out.
Ares84HU  +   271d ago
Now you really told me DoctorJones. You were stating facts yet you wish good luck to consoles with 1080p 60fps when you know all to well that they can do that. You were mocking consoles and you know it so don't act so innocent. Read your comment again, it comes down as PC can easily do 1080p with 60fps but consoles probably will not is what you are saying.

Does my two curse words bother you that much?? I'm sorry, maybe it's because I'm sick and tired of PC elitists constantly mocking console gamers every chance they get.


Thank you, I did learn something. How not to be an arrogant PC elitist.

Oh and I feel the need to explain this because I think you two are not getting it;

An 8 year old with a nintendo ds is just as much a gamer as a 20+ year old with a $10000 rig. PC gamers aren't better than the rest of us is what I meant with this. Too bad I had to explain this but apparently you guys didn't get the point.

After DSFix it is amazing.
I would not be surprised if DS2 sold just as well if not better than the xbox or ps3 version
joab777  +   272d ago
Damn, Damn, Damn...worst news ever! I want to play this so bad and can't wait! I knew they would do this right before. Now I have to either wait til infinity or play on ps3 or 360. I wish they had waited. Dont get me wrong...I don't mind playing on ps3 (though I'd love new dualshock) but I don't wanna shell out $60 more. Wish they had just done both!

Shoulda read first...no actual news! Good to go!

The PC version of Dark Souls was superior in almost every aspect AFTER you modded it. Being able to run that game at 1080p/60fps (well more like 55) with high res texture mods, AND being able to connect with my friends easily thanks to another mod made the game a major step up from the console versions. Only gripe to be had was the shitty GFWL nonsense.
make72  +   271d ago
pc is for cheaters.Origianal games are origianals not the raped moded games.

frostypants  +   272d ago
If Dark Souls 2 came to the new consoles there'd be no need for Deep Down, for me at least.
Transporter47  +   272d ago
Deep Down is F2P so why not buy one but play both ;)
frostypants  +   272d ago
Because truthfully, with Capcom's record and F2P trends in general, it would actually cost more to play Deep Down in a way that wasn't intentionally tedious. Hope I am wrong.
#2.3.1 (Edited 272d ago ) | Agree(9) | Disagree(1) | Report
Transporter47  +   272d ago
Well you can still play Deep Down regardless of micro-transactions, you don't need to buy anything. I never spent money on F2P games only on some LoL skins and that was 14.99 with the collectors pack.
maddskull  +   272d ago
deep is free so i will go with both
KiLLUMiNATi_89  +   271d ago
Should be easy dark souls is a proven franchise while deep down is another hype Sony exclusive....

shadow18spirit  +   272d ago
of course theyre going to make a ps4 and xbox port, even south park youll see.
colonel179  +   272d ago
For me, Demons Souls and Dark Souls were the most innovative games last generation. The unique online game was truly innovative, and started the seamless online gameplay that is becoming common in upcoming games like The Division.
frostypants  +   272d ago
Looking back I liked Demon's Souls better. It did a better job maintaining the dark/nightmarish atmosphere and I actually preferred having the central hub access to the various maps. I also liked the light/dark world tendency aspects and how they would open new paths...sure it was confusing, but it added to the depth and mystery of it all. Dark Souls seemed to take Demon's Souls and provide a bigger world, but slightly watered down everything.

Back-to-Back  +   272d ago
I agree with you but looks like the nerds think the only reason we prefer demons souls was because it was a ps exclusive.
xActionBasturdx  +   271d ago
IMO demon's souls was hard than dark souls...when you were out of cresent moon grass that was your ass. When you died being hollow actually was bad cause you lose half health. And being cursed while hollow was just the absolute worst thing that could happen to you.

Good times lol
SirBradders  +   271d ago
@Above i thought they was both unique but with the same game mechanics but i enjoyed dark souls more.
From what i have seen in many comments and sites it tends to be whichever one you played first is the one you enjoyed more, it's not true to everyone but thats what ive gathered.
Think of it this way whichever one you played first leaves the biggest impression on you and introduces you to the lore/mechanics.
But both are brilliant in their own right.
ravinash  +   271d ago
Yeah, for me I enjoyed Demon souls. I loved the dark feel to it. But yes part of it might have been the originality to it so playing that first might be one reason why I liked it more than dark souls.
Also like the idea of the paths that opened up depending on if you were light or dark....although me being simple never quite managed to become either to try these paths.

Hell, I played the entire game before I relaised that I could run, so shows what I know.

StrawberryDiesel420  +   271d ago
Best MP ever, Demon's Souls was game of the generation for PS3.
Dhuie  +   271d ago
Agree ! When i found out that you could play as the boss(Old Monk)and vs players that blew my mind. In saying that i've still gone out and pre paid in full the Dark Souls 2 collectors @ $159 here in Australia. Jeeze I'm such a victim.
Ashunderfire86  +   272d ago
Man this would of been cool to play this on PS4 with the Vita.
PurpHerbison  +   272d ago
Please do not port Dark Souls 2 to nextgen. Nextgen deserves a Souls game that was built for it. Demons Souls II would be the most ideal.
ceedubya9  +   272d ago
Well, I doubt we'll have a true nextgen version anytime soon. I wouldn't mind having a port of this one in '14 while waiting on the next one to arrive the following year or later.
frostypants  +   272d ago
Demons Souls II would have to be a Sony exclusive, as Sony owns those rights. Which is probably related to why Deep Down looks like such a Demon's Souls clone (it's a Capcom game but Sony is very involved).
make72  +   271d ago
they better do Demons souls 2 just for ps4.I dont wanna see laggy pc version.Soul games are origianal playstation games.
PurpHerbison  +   271d ago
You know the Souls games lagging has nothing to do with the PC version right? And you do realize Dark Souls 2 is being made on the PC first this time around right?
JJShredder  +   272d ago
I would like to play on PC. Will I have to worry about cheaters as opposed to playing on consoles? Thanks.
PurpHerbison  +   272d ago
If there is a cheater problem I expect the mod community to have some great mods to remedy a complete legit experience or very close to it.
Back-to-Back  +   272d ago
Will I have to worry about cheaters as opposed to playing on consoles?

It's PC what do you expect? Obviously it will be the first one exploited with hacks and trainers. Dark Souls pvp on pc is the worst thing ever.
JJShredder  +   272d ago
I believe DS2 is supposed to have dedicated servers this time around. Surely that should help?
Bladesfist  +   272d ago
If the server is fully authoritative then cheating is not very viable. It really depends on how much is controlled by the server.
Hellsvacancy  +   272d ago
I shall probably hold off getting the PS3 version if this is true

I've been praying (not literally) for a next gen version, I want to play it properly, nice frame rate etc
jessupj  +   272d ago
He didn't flat out deny it isn't coming to current gen, so I suspect they'll release it for last gen and then maybe a year later release a '1080p/60fps' version for current gen.

Bit of a dick move, but from a business perspective it makes sense to try to get extra sales.

If there's a separate trophy list I won't have a problem buying both.
Hellsvacancy  +   271d ago
Yeah your right, I'd assume the PS4/XB1 versions will be ultimate editions, dlc etc included

I'm not going to be cancelling my PS3 DS2 preorder, I want the game now
PurpHerbison  +   271d ago
With it being developed for PC first, a nextgen port should not be hard at all. However, we are better than ports. We deserve a fresh clean new experience for nextgen and I think it is worth waiting a couple years for. Getting sick and tired of ports.
Zeniix  +   272d ago
just don't delay the pc release date :(
ziggurcat  +   272d ago
would definitely buy it on PS4 rather than PS3 if they did this.
kingduqc  +   272d ago
I don't get console guys, they get all wet just thinking about 1080p and 60fps but they could of got that years ago on pc. Kinda like 4k in the next next next gen in about 2-4 uear on pc.
-wub-  +   272d ago
Not everyone wants to game on PC.
kingduqc  +   271d ago
They seem to want to play dark souls 2 and it's on pc... Same with about 80-90% of the games they play so why not get the better version of it?
make72  +   271d ago
23 inch monitor 4k LOL.I have pc also but PS4 is for the gamers.Pc nerds just scare power of ps4.For 400 euros ps4 is a real beast.Pc you need 450 euros gpu to even think about to fight against PS4.
Doink  +   271d ago
Please shut up already tard you don't know anything about PC
DareDareCaro  +   272d ago
Geez! The title starts the party but the text party-poop everything… Damn!!!
Dlacy13g  +   272d ago
I wasn't keen on Dark Souls but I would give it another chance on next gen for sure.
SirBradders  +   271d ago
Just out of interest what turned you off from it?
Dlacy13g  +   271d ago
I think one of bigger issues with that game was how saves worked. My gaming "time" is very stop and start sometimes (work from home and have a 4yr old) so it was ultimately not so much the game having issues as it was me not being able to progress and save in a quick efficient way.
PurpHerbison  +   271d ago
I would think Dark Souls is perfect for playing and getting off as there is no save points you have to get to. You play, progress a little, then log off. And when you log back in you are in the same exact place you left off. It actually seems to suit your situation. If the learning curve is too tough it only takes a little while to get over it.
Dlacy13g  +   271d ago
I could be mistaken here but I seem to recall needing the bonfires for progress. I could be totally wrong as its been a long while since I gave it a go. I do recall stumbling into a graveyard with Skeletons and getting my ass handed to me repeatedly. LOL...

Well now I just may have to give the game a re-rent and see if my opinion changes.
RussellGorall  +   271d ago
I agree, farming souls at whatever points means you automatically are saving progress a lot. You are going to either die quickly or get to the next bonfire quickly.
RussellGorall  +   271d ago
You should give the game another chance. I played Demon's Souls after it and I thought it was a pretty average game, but Dark Souls is just like nothing else. Really eerie.
Gamesgbkiller  +   271d ago
This one has to be ported to PS4 and X1.

Fingers crossed.
LAWSON72  +   271d ago
I am going to say what console gamers said when PC version was confirmed to be poor 'just be happy you are getting the game'
RussellGorall  +   271d ago
I refuse to go onto that site anymore.
