    Nothing to discuss there really, except that I'm very pleased. We can have the sequel sooner and I don't need to buy a new console for it.
    Gameplay demo was made with Xbox 360 and to me it looked so awesome and I'm totally happy with it.

    Actually game play demo was on PC

    Or I may be wrong, it may be a demo that interviewers played was on PC

    Honestly, I am going to eventually buy a PS4 because it does look like a great console to play games on, but I'm going to wait until more than just one game comes out.

    I'll be honest, even if it was only for the PS4 I wouldn't buy both automatically, that's just too much money used up on one game that I will eventually get bored of. So I'm glad this happened, it saves me money and I'll actually be able to play the game.

    why are people glad dks2 is not coming out for next gen consoles? its not like they woud be releasing it ONLY for them, it kinda sucks that they wont do that since im getting the ps4 day one and I wanted to play it on that.

    I'm happy because DkS 2 is the only game I'm looking forward to. Now I don't need to dish out a few hundred extra bucks to play it, plus it'll come out sooner.

    but you don't HAVE to buy a next gen console, just get the game on the current ones. people make it seem like theyre beign forced to buy a next gen console. if the game might come next year(?) why not for all consoles? poo.

    I'm quite glad about it. I don't use PS or X-BOX, so, while it wouldn't really affect me, it does mean faster release, which is always good for a quality game.

    Worth noting that porting from PC to PS4 will/would be relatively easy. And they certainly didn't make an entirely new graphics engine for 1 game; the engine must be viable for next gen too.

    We might see a port well after release is what I'm saying.

    That's what I'm thinking. Just because it won't release for the next-gen doesn't mean we won't get to play it on the next-gen. At least that's what I'm thinking/hoping.

    I hope they do and if they do announce it before it comes out in the current gen consoles I will wait for the ps4 port, I just really wanna make some good vids and streams without having to buy a capture card worth half of what the ps4 is gonna be. and from what ive seen its gonna be sso much easier to do on ps4.

    Works for me. I'm currently playing on a 360 and hope to move to a PC when the holidays roll around, so either way I'll be able to play it
