Sometimes there is a version that does better and other times they are fairly equal. What is the case for Dragon Age?

I just know if I buy the Ultimate Version now it will probably be $29 for console in the summer when I get around to playing it. However, it is on sale for $25 on STEAM right now. Although games on my 55" are pretty nice (and no I don't have my PC hooked up to it nor will I as I have an actual computer/music room and a home theater room.

Thanks in advance.

PC.

control scheme will be much better as RPG's like that are meant to be played with a mouse and keyboard.

-e- and yeah, Machiyariko has it right. the camera will be better too.

I vote of the PC version. Better graphics if your system can manage them. And the camera is better on the PC version i believe. There is a more tactical overhead camera view in the PC version that I think is absent on the console version.

If you have a PC that will play it nicely the PC version would be the one I'd go for.

Definitely PC. The controls are better ie: battles won't feel so clunky trying to command your party.

Got it for PC via STEAM when it was on sale. The console version was a port that wasn't fully fleshed out and somewhat stripped in graphics, etc. One of few games designed for PC first beyond MMO/Strategy. Can't wait to play it now. Have a back-order of games to go through first.
