Darksouls on PC? Maybe?

A PC version for Dark Souls could be imminent.  There was that petition a while back asking for the developers to make a PC version of this great console title.  I was one of those that signed that, and I really do hope this becomes reality.  IMO, it's an outstanding game hampered by console limitations.  Unleash its potential on the PC, I say!

    They might mention something about PC or they might even not mention anything. I believe the upcoming announcement is likely to be in regard to the upcoming DLC that they've been working on for a while (which was mentionned briefly in February if I recall correctly).

     

     

    EDIT: Actually, I might be wrong. Further research shows something much more interesting that hint towards a PC version of the game : Eurogamer - Near-irrefutable evidence of Dark Souls PC arises

    Simultaneously, Namco Bandai teased a Dark Souls Facebook announcement and Australian magazine PC PowerPlay teased a forthcoming issue with the tell-tale Dark Souls death message "You Died".

    It's a great game, one of the very, very few console titles I own (PS3 ver).  One can wonder how well that game would look with an HD treatment and the power of today's PCs.  Not to mention... mods image

    Dark souls is one of the few games I don't think would be improved by a pc release.  Not that I don't love the game, but playing this particular one without joysticks would be painful.  It's already hard to get used to the sluggish movement of this game but with a mouse it would just be ugly while you frantically tried to turn. 

    Granted that's operating under the assumption that it would be a half arsed console port.  Generally speaking and history proves it correct console ports tend to not take into account the platform they are getting ported to.

    If sensitivity gets raised then there may be a case for a pc version. 

    imo of course.

    I have a PC 360 pad so if it's a stright port I say bring it on.  I found playng Skyrim on a pad more enjoyable and fun than keyboard and mouse, Deadspace was great in a pad, shame Masseffect does not support a pad.

    Meh, the game seems to have been made from the ground up to be run on consoles.  As ealier posters have said the history of console > pc ports are usually never good and I definately don't see this game being the exception.

    Yes I played SWTOR.

    I think it will reach 100.000 signatures in less than one month.

    really cant see this game being that good with a K/M, mouse sure, but keyboard movement might not be accurate enough to properley traverse everything safely.

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
    Sig typo fixed thanks to an observant stragen001.

    I can see the gameplay being as good as Mount and Blade or the Witcher was.

     

    Ah, by the way, know how the Witcher 2 and Baldurs Gate recently came with a new gimmick "Enhanced Edition"?

    I think Dark Souls will be called Enhanced Edition as well.
