Rich Bantegui, Namco Bandai Community Manager, posted a teaser for an upcoming announcement for Dark Souls fans on his Twitter account.
I believe its a PC version coming
It's possible, although since it says "Dark Souls fans" it sounds more like it is aimed at people who have played the game already, at least it sounds like that to me.
Yeah but wouldn't the ton of people who signed the petition to get the game on PC be considered "Dark Souls Fans" as well? Either way I get what you are saying but it could go either way. I would love to see a PC version but DLC is nice for those who have the console versions.
Well I dont care for a PC version since I have the PS3 version, but a PC version with proper PC Support (mods) would be so good for the series. Either way, shut up and take my money!
True Reibooi, who knows maybe both would be possible, I'm sure I read something a while ago about there being DLC in the works for the game, maybe PC gamers would get the full version and console players could obviously just get the DLC. (I know that's probably a bit optimistic but hey, who knows.)
Already own it on PS3, but I would pick this up again for mod support ;)
It would be awesome if it came to PC... Namco must know by now that they will make a ridiculous amount of profit by putting it on Steam.
I would pick it up on PC for one reason alone. Lag free. Both the 360 and PS3 version have absolutely horrible lag for me, to the point that I gave up playing online. I had lag in Demon's Souls also, but not nearly that bad. I haven't played it too much since the big patch where they fixed the anti lock on ring stuff though, so maybe it's been ironed out a little bit.
if it's PC version then high five for everyone who signed a petition, congratulate yourself
there was an article not too long ago hinting about possible DLC for this game. ive only ever purchased one DLC this gen but if this rumour is true this will certainly be my second day one! edit:here the aforementioned article http://n4g.com/news/918752/...
I'm all for DLC!!! Day 1 purchase!!!
PC version!! Fuck yes. I was talking about this last week with some work pals and we all agreed that this and demons souls had so much potential on the PC. For me its an RPG thats easy to get into and could easily be crafted into a MMORPG
Has everybody forgotten which company this is The same one that has ignored millions of other petitions id say dlc Hell I think a sequel has a higher chance of being announced than a pc version
Its the DLC that was rumoured a few months back.
Would be nice but also I am optimistic for the PC users to get their game also.
Interesting... I wonder how this game would feel with a mouse/keyboard set-up? Anyway, excellent game I hope my PC only brethren get a chance to check it out.
@Reibooi If they really were fans they would have bought the game regardless of platform...
You can not say that,what your saying is if they are fans then they should go out fork out 200 pounds for a console unit then another 40 pounds for the game. Who as the money to do this just because they like the game and the dev want put the coding to PC.
If you are really a fan of the game , you would want to see the game in higher resolution and better textures.
I hope its dlc not a PC port, i benefit then, screw the PC crowd Edit: Xiren187 puts it better
Yeah screw other gamers being able to enjoy this game because of your die hard ways.
How are they getting screwed,nothing is stopping them getting a xbox or ps3 n playing this.I think its actually the other way round, you must be a die hard pc fan to refuse to play this just because its on consoles n miss out on a great game.
You wonder y pc gamers hate console gamers...
All gamers seems to hate each other. You're all stupid and immature, if you ask me.
yea lol they hate them because of that LOL. You know why people hate PC gamers? well lets just say the list is long and i don't have the time to write you a book. hell most pc gamers i know me included hate pc gamers .
Me want DLC than a PC port.
how about both at once. they tend to do this to get the hype going for the new version. Now on pc with added content, which should also come to console for free.
Id be more than happy to know non-console owners get to try this great game if thats the announcement but I would be even happier if its a sequel-related announcement - although it does seem too soon for such a wish.
New game for the Souls franchise please, love me some demon/dark souls =D
i would be happy for dlc for this game but come to think about it (after reading your comment) id welcome a new game in the series with open hands and a massive grin!
It will be called.... Dead Souls. No, wait, yakuza stole that name. How about Damned Souls? Doom Souls? Devils Souls!
doomed or damned would sound really good and appropriate for the souls' series
I think it would be cool for it to be released on PC. Let more players bask under the heat of the Firelink Shrine so the game can grab more fans. The curiosity for the mods in response also piqued my interest because fans may help contribute in helping the game run in optimum efficiency. This would be a sight that I think true Dark Souls fans would love to see. The icing on the cake would be cross platform play between PC and PS3 players, a practice that should be further encouraged......
Its possible CAPCOM did it with LOST PLANET COLONIES PC and Xbox users played united,the only issue I have with this is though the PC mods that come on and make the MP unfair. Shooting at someone and doing no damage or swinging your sword and doing the same is not fun or competitive.
True, but cheaters are a necessary evil in the gaming community unlike a lot of the stuff that are accepted recently as such.
Well this is exciting.
Goody! I love me some Souls action!!!
just bought it for 360, but the framerate does get annoying at times. If they do a proper pc version it could be even more epic. It kind of feels like an old school pc action rpg, where the gameplay is king instead of stupid crappy cutscenes. edit: anyone who says the pc version wouldn't work probably has never gamed on pc before. You may as well say diablo wouldnt work on pc...
PC version just wouldn't work. It's a game that works on strict rules and principles and respect.
Lol. Pls tell me you're drunk.
Remember, PC's support controllers too.
Nothing to do with controllers From software likes for ppl to play their way on pc ppl would mod the hell out of it is what he ws saying
@ Smashman98 So what? The xbox side has level hackers and im sure ps3 side has something too. Just because some people don't play by the rules, doesn't mean the whole system is doomed to fail. I can keep explaining this in great detail, but just because some people want to do thing's their way, does not mean the game wouldn't work. Just means some will be enjoying their game ,their own way. Being mad at this is like complaining that someone is or isn't using a fight stick for a fighting game... just plain stupid.
i would play it, but i would NEVER go online...which kinda beats the whole idea of the game
I hope for a PC version,but i think it will be a DLC announcement.
Yo dawg, I heard you like announcements, so we made an announcement for your announcement
Dark Souls is a heavyweight in my choosing whether to buy a PS3 or build a PC. This announcement might be the clencher.
New areas and bosses please. Probably PC version though.
I already played the PS3 version.. But i'm ready to buy a PC version to play it with mods (if they released a PC version)
Hope its the PC version but I have a feeling it will be some DLC.
If it's not Demon's Souls 2 then I don't care.
its the pc version
Oh god please be DLC. BRING ON THE PAIN.
"Shut up and take my money" That was hilarious, but thats exactly how i feel.
But, i dont see why it would be a dlc simply because ppl ask for it...I still look at that broken pillar in the nexus with a huge longing...
PC ppl just stop playing the waiting game and buy a ps3 or xbox. If your a fan of the game like the quote says more than likely you have already played this game. Why would fromsoft think their console players would be happy about a pc announcement? Bottom line is this announcement is either for dlc or a new game. BET ME!!
Because if a pc version is coming out, it will look so much better than on these 6 year old consoles. Sure I have consoles to play the few exclusives, but if it's a multiplat that's on pc, id so much rather play on the pc And if you are a FAN of the GAME, why wouldn't you want to see the game with better graphics?
Maybe they are finally going to tell us what that pendant really does :P
Dark Souls for PC for me!!!!! Already got it for PS3. Would love to play it on PC!!!! This game to me was the best RPG ever made, and I will never forget how surprise I was when Demon Souls was actually a great game. It wasn't even on my radar at the time. My friend convince me to play it, then I just rented it on Gamefly and kept it.
DLC PLZ DLC PLZ DLC PLZ PLC PLZ!!!!
Hope its a PC version with mod support
have you even played demon's souls/ dark souls ? mods would not work with a game like this.
Since this is aimed towards Dark souls fans. AKA people that actually are fans of the series and played it either on ps3 or xbox 360. I am hoping it is a new installment or DLC. think about it pc guys...what would make you think its a PC port??? why would they address dark souls fans and announce a port of a game they already played? use your brains please.
Hope it's DLC but not some [email protected] like alternative costumes or some other useless junk like that. A new area or two would be cool. If it's a sequel I'll explode in my pants.
