"I honestly wasn't expecting such a massive support. My boss(es) even came to talk to me about this, after it explodes all around the world. If you wanted to have the attention of Namco Bandai Games, now you have it.

"The future is in your hands, and I hope you will keep supporting this. I make a personal objective to make sure every relevant people in Namco Bandai Games is in touch with this formidable effort."
So here's what happened.

The petition was started.
Signatures were gathered.
It was thrown upon the interwebs.
And now every higher up at Namco knows about the demand.

It's just a waiting game now.

QFT!! Goddamn pirates...

I think they should make it available on Steam and give players who actually cared to buy the game extra content or such.

BRING IT!

namco has always delivered great games, and if they worked with steam to get their collection up and running through their network it would only improve their profit margin, once a game is on steam their is no more expenses in those sales for inventory (disk, shipping, manual, case, etc) only man power to maintain it and keep it updated.

no production, just development

Simple way of lowering piracy ( Even if only be 10-20% ):

Make it a steamworks game and for $49.99 ( With all DLC ) since it's been out on console for awhile. As for demon souls, well.. I honestly hope they port this first since it was the first game. That is assuming the two games are actually related since I've never played either one.

Heck just port both games and make it a pack on steam with all DLCs for 59.99. Instant buy from me.

I don't know about that, but it's an aspect that many probably won't want to miss out on.

A Demon's Souls port is unlikely. It was developed with assistance from Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and From's reasoning for creating a new, similar IP in Dark Souls was so that they could go around Sony and make it multiplatform.

I see. Did not know that.

Well Dark Souls is fine too

Just make it a proper port ( Atleast proper controls and 60 fps support with AA and AF ) and a steam game and I guarantee it will be a huge hit.

I thought the online component was handled really well. Took time to get into the PvP side of it but once I did I was hooked.
