Darks Souls 2 PC Vs console worth the wait

Dark Souls 2 may have been unleashed on console, but it’s no secret that many gamers are instead waiting for the PC version which has been delayed. The wait is going to be well worth it, especially after some refreshing comments from the developers who promise that enhanced visuals are on the way.

Dark Souls was an awesome game and it looks like the sequel is going to be fantastic as well judging by the early feedback. There was inevitable skepticism when it was confirmed that no Dark Souls 2 PS4 or Xbox One versions were coming at launch, but it looks like that has now been quickly forgotten about with the install base on last-gen still as healthy as ever.

Now, as we look ahead to the Dark Souls 2 PC release date on April 25, we have some great quotes to share from series producer Tak Miyazoe. When speaking to GamerhubTV recently, he gave PC owners exactly what they wanted to hear by saying:

“We apologize for the delay, but we did spend time working on the PC version, making sure that we do attend to higher resolutions, higher framerates, and also keyboard mapping most controls”

Just in case you needed the final clarification, the developers have put extra care into the PC version, essentially confirming its status as lead platform. The Darks Souls 2 graphics on PS3 and Xbox 360 have already been the subject of debate among communities, but hopefully it looks like this will be a none issue on PC with the enhanced visuals as suggested above.

We know some of you are unhappy that console gamers have had the change to play Dark Souls 2 first, but we think moods will soon change once we start seeing accurate Darks Souls 2 PC vs PS3 and Xbox 360 footage.

If you are waiting for the PC version, let us know how you are feeling right now. Are you more than happy to wait until April 25 if it means better graphics in all areas?

I don’t own a PS3 or an XB360, so I’ll buy the PC version and I’m very happy the developers have made efforts to provide PC gamers with the experience they deserve. But if I owned a console I’d buy the respective version despite the graphics downgrade. This game is superb nonetheless.

“essentially confirming its status as lead platform”. No they are just polishing up the port from the consoles

Does this mean I should not get for PS3? What a silly, silly comment to make from a commercial perspective. I was going to pick up today on PS3, but KNOWING (rather than just guessing) that the PC version is the REAL game has made me decide to leave it alone. Why not say this just prior to PC release so as to not put people like me off buying on PS3 at release and maximising my price paid? Also, it is made even more foolish considering that it is chiefly a Single Player game (although I know that have… Read more »
