Quite a few people have sent me this link to a forum post in which a Namco employee suggests that has to be “demand” for a PC version of acclaimed console RPG Dark Souls, if it is to show up on the one true format. It seems to me that Namco decided there wasn’t demand, of course, because the game has so far only turned up on the TV boxes. That strikes me as a little strange, especially when you consider that historically-speaking PC gamers are VERY interested in making armoured men hit fantasy enemies with swords and sharp sticks. Underpin that with unforgiving RPG mechanics and that DOES sound like our kind of game. But I suppose there are only thirty million or so Steam accounts, and hundreds of millions of better-than-360-spec PCs worldwide… What possible market could there be for such a game on the age old Windows machine? Eh? Oh, and Namco, while you are converting Dark Souls to PC you might as well do Enslaved too? I mean it can’t possibly hurt. Thanksmuch!

Had a look to see if this had been posted, was surprised it wasn't? I don't know about you guys but I would buy this again if it was ported to the PC.

TotalBiscuit also has some very valid points about why a port is a good idea for Namco and From Software.

Out of curiosity has anyone else been watching the SDA livestream where this game just got completely trashed (during the Bayonetta run)? I probably wouldn't buy this if it came to PC but I guess there are some die hard RPG fans that probably would.

Funny the mod locked the other thread - must not read before acting.


I just don't see myself even wanting to play Dark Souls on PC. The game is just too console-y and would just be too easy without the sloppy input you get with a controller. Loved the challenge on the console though.

Although I appreciate my thread being left open, the other one was posted about 2 minutes before mine smile.gif So mine should be locked and the other reopened.

A article (personal opinion really) talking about why a game should be on a certain platform is considered news?

Whether you play with a controller or a mouse and keyboard would make no difference to this games difficulty.

 

And for the record I had no problem whatsoever with the input with a control pad on the Xbox 360 version.

 

I'd like to see this game come to PC but the problem with it is the ease of which people can modify their games. Is more open and subsceptible to cheaters on this platform than any other (that's not to say there's none on other platforms however). It could work but it better be done RIGHT!

The news was that a Namco employee said a port would be possible if the demand was high enough....
