Thousands sign anti-GFWL Dark Souls PC petition


Thousands have signed an anti-Games for Windows Live Dark Souls PC petition.
The PC version, due out on 24th August, was announced to support GFWL last night at a Namco Bandai press event in Las Vegas, and it didn't take long for gamers to express their concern about the controversial digital platform.

They should have used Steamworks in the first place.....GFWL is buggy plus its not available in every country.....

Saladfax2413d ago

It's very odd. In reading a lot of other chatter, I've heard quite a few people disliking Steamworks. Maybe it was just a vocal minority, but...

I dunno. I've never *ever* encountered a problem when using Steam, offline, online, or whatever else.

Im sorry, but us console gamers had no choice but to use the crappy online service that was given to us in Dark Souls, why should it be any different for PC gamers?

Its not as if your NOT gettin Dark Souls, you made a petition askin for it

*WE WANT DARK SOULS ON PC* so you get it, but then its *WE WANT STEAM NOT GFWL*

What a big bunch of cry babies

I much preferred the online for Demons Souls, god knows why they changed it for Dark Souls, maybe i should of started a petition way back then askin them to change it back

I feel bad for the developers. most of the people who wanted this game on PC are gonna pirate the shit out of it!

h311rais3r2413d ago

Don't make assumptions about the pc crowd. RPGs always outsell their console counter parts.

OhReginald2413d ago

I think daggerjack is talking about that steam fanboys will pirate dark souls because its a GFWL digital game and not a steamworks digital game.

Daggerjack2413d ago

That's why i said "most". I have a Gaming PC aswell. i know it's gonna happen. shit, most of the forums i go to are already talking about pirating it!

@ OhReginald

I'm one of the huge Steam fans but will still buy the game regardless....won't have to deal with GFWL since i'm sticking with the sp mode..kinda of sucks since never got to do co-op since my xbl is free but GFWL isn't safe for save files and etc.

Captain Qwark 92413d ago

that couldnt be farther from the truth, just a few that come to mind.....

dragon age series
mass effect series

all sold better on xbox than pc....

if anything they sell better on xbox than pc unless its a completely unknown rpg or something a little more under the radar like the witcher 2 which will likely have more sales on pc

I dont think a petition can change this. At this point its already a done deal.

I actually want GFWL as it allows achievement points!

aquamala2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

good thing I don't have to play this on a console! you know it will have higher resolution, better frame rate, better textures, game starts and loads faster. can't wait for the best version of the game.

edit: I did have Dark Souls on PS3, but traded it in once I heard about it will be on PC!

Mythicninja2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

Disagree = console fanboy

neogeo2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

But da power of da cell!!

It's 150 years ahead of any gaming pc. Sony said we will get 120fps in 1080p..I'm just waiting for the true power.........still waiting...

GamingTruth2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

im not the games still look like cg to me

i know you love your fellow pc brothers agrees with you

aquamala2413d ago (Edited 2413d ago )

^^^ someone that still think PS3 is a powerful machine! I have a PS3 too but to me it's a budget gaming platform.

lmao power of the cell! and the enormous, umm, 256MB of video ram!

GamingTruth2413d ago
