A high res scan of Dark Souls has been emerged.
Looks great! I hope this is a PS3 exclusive, no offence but games tend to get better when they're PS3 exclusive.
Better graphics surely(besides pc), other than that it's all choices on the devs side, besides Demons Souls could have easily been 360 exclusive and there wouldn't have been a differance, it was hardly a taxing game on the system. It's brillance came from the gameplay alone. The pic is weird though, the new HUD is really...similar. Can't wait though, Demons souls may have been my fav Ps3 game this gen. It's certainly up there anyway
the game is Multiplatform. First game wasnt Graphically ground breaking and could have been done on the xbox360. Seeing how it got well received on PS3 it's only right they take the sequel on other consoles.
Haha, why is the first pic of Demons souls 1? That confused me...
no dude the HUD is actually the exact same as DS, doesn't matter though because DS was an amazing game @red hmm is that first one Demon's Souls?
I think all of you are forgetting that Demon's Soul was known for it's gameplay not graphics. So before you guys rage on about fucking graphics again, try and remember what I just said. Really is said how the first comment on every topic on this site is guaranteed to be someone trying to start some shit or just being ignorant.
Yeah because Sony never had any exclusives that failed. :/ Anyway, looking forward to a hardcore game. Games just aren't challenging like they used to be.
Looks great! I hope this is a PS3 exclusive, no offence but games tend to get better when they're PS3 exclusive. love it how 2 posts after that xbox boys chime in
This is why I don't comment here often. Of course it is PS3 only. Of course, it is beautiful. It has nothing to do with Xbox 360. It isn't on the PC, the Wii, the DS, or any other console. So...... Oh that's right. Because we can't get over the epic-ly lame console war.
IDK why people are disagreeing with you. Ps3 exclusives are the best games this gen, in every aspect.
it a multiplatform now, but who care, i am getting it for the PS3
wow this is the exect same copy of DS cant SONY sue this guys? "fans love our game" "let make secound part mull to make more money" "we cant sony own the ip" "lets make a new ip and change the name but keep everyting just like DS" "yeah lets do that" what a bs, i guess i will have to get this game at a cheap price sometime... SANTA MONICA please make DS2 please!!!!
WTF are you talking about???
You are just ridiculous... stop acting like your one of sony's lawyers and play games cause you like them, not cause it's written sony on the box.
how you want me to enjoy a game that copy DS but does not fallow the history in it, i want to fallow the history not play a copy you losers..
Ok, so you don't want to play a copy that you're not going to enjoy anyway... so why do you still plan to buy it when it's cheap ? and why didn't you say anything about the story if that's what's bothering you ? I mean you talked about From software wanting to make money, sony owning the IP, but nothing about the story. Read your BS before calling people losers...
The gameplay is soo good!!! I guess i will have to put my pride on the side and enjoy this baby
I know they just want more sales, but how many more did FF13 get from going multi. Not a lot relative to overall sales. I don't care since I'll be getting it on ps3 and I'm sure it'll be a good version but from the developers standpoint I don't see the extra porting/developing time being worth it. No matter what console you support, resources shared for multiplat release could invariably be focussed into a more polished exclusive. This game will still be awesome no doubt!
All multiplats sell equal amounts on both systems more or less with a couple of exceptions (FF13, MW). Making a game multiplat is definitely in the developers advantage. They no doubt did an in depth analysis so I'm sure they wouldn't be doing it if it weren't going to benefit from it.
They got 1.5 million. Or 90 million dollars in sales. May not be 4.4 million on ps3 but I doubt you'd be willing to give them the 90 million they'd miss out on if they'd gone exclusive. So please shut up and stop pretending DS sold anywhere near Final Fantasy
Well, Sony could still have Demon Souls 2 made, but I am looking forward to Dark Souls just as much as I was Demon Souls - seriously, exclusivity has made nazis out of us all - who cares if everyone gets to play the same game on their console of choice? Why is that such a bad thing??? lol
this IS DS2, the name is different because it's multiplatform, but it's just the next evolution of the gameplay ideas from DS. i really hope they keep the player anonymity and lack of voice chat going. (would microsoft allow a game to block voice and party chat?) really looking forward to this, demon's souls was goty 09.
You can mute anyone on xbox live. And, well, you have to join a party chat, so if you don't join, no party chat, simple as that.
I don't care if this is multi-plat or not...and goodness...why should anybody? If FromSoftware can keep the BALANCE of the game intact without Sony Japan helping (and they did help on some of the technical issues, but the concept was all FromSoftware), then us gamers who like a real challenge are in for a great game! Better than Demon's Souls? Don't know...haven't played it...But I like what Im hearing so far about the seamless world and exploration... By definition, the game mechanics are goinig to have to change somewhat... Demon's Souls=Greatest game of the decade for me.
I'm interested in the evolution of the title. The more open world feel, rather than the Nexus and tight, confined spaces - and am curious to see how that will affect the game and the scares. Really loving the extra colour kicked in to the mix as well. :)
