I can play the same game I bought years ago on any of my new PC. I can't do that with consoles.

For consoles I have to pay MS and Sony yearly or monthly fees to play last gen games which are streamed from some server. I don't do that with the PC.

But I want 60fps at 4k resolution and 144hz refresh rate.../s

Weird, I dont have any of these problems. I guess my PC doesn't suck.

That's kinda true, bad or medium PCs tend to give much more headaches in games.

I always build my own PCs even though I'm totally useless at doing so, yet I dont even get a fraction of the PC gaming problems I read about online.

I think most of the time its people trying to play games on ancient hardware.

ye obviously my gtx980m and i7 sucks... Idiot. This game is so unoptimized it hurts. I'm now regretting i didnt buy the game on console...

I guess the issues must be on PC. I've played roughly an hour of it and haven't noticed any glitches or frame rate drops. Once you get used to the control set up, it's actually a good game, speaking for the PS4 of course.

Well since I live in the UK I have to wait another month. Thanks WB. I'm not paying £55 for the digital copy. Besides I just got a email from amazon that they have upgraded my pre order to include all dlc and the season pass at no extra cost. Nice one.

£39.99 on steam. Unless you mean on console, you can buy digitally (using US dollar pre-paid cards) off US store on Xbox for £31/£32. I read a similar method can be used for PS, although haven't tested that myself.

Been playuing this game for a few hours.


But on PC it is a POS.

Running it maxed settings out runs solid 50-60fps.
But it does just randomly cash, I think when cut scenes start to play.

Quite lame.
