    X-box 360, PS3 or PC?

    Post by vixder/pennywise on Mon Sep 23, 2013 6:40 am

    Right now I´m not sure about this. I think PC will have way better visiuals, but I chose PS3 because I think the community will be better there. But if enough people here vote for PC I think thats the platform I´ll get it for.

    PC, because it will be the optimal platform this time.
    I MAY buy also the Xbox version if I get impatient.

    PS3, since it just makes sense for me to keep playing on the same platform.

    Also PS3 sales were the strongest of all platforms for dark souls- I expect that trend to continue

    Well, March is well after next gen comes out, so if I do decide to pick up a PS4 and that's treating me well, I'd probably get DkS2 for that. 
    Otherwise, PS3 without a question.

    Put down 360 solely because its the only current-gen console I have. As much as I would love to break all ties with Microsoft at this point, I have DkS on the 360 and there's no word on whether DkS2 will be out on my next-gen of choice (PS4) in the foreseeable future. So for now, it will be the 360. That is, unless they really do a good job on the PC  port glitches-wise, since I have a corded controller I can use.

    There isn't going to be a PC port. The game was made using the PC as a baseline and will be ported from there to the current-gen consoles. Given the framework of next-gen consoles, I expect DkS2 to be out for it a couple of months after it's current release.

    360 because thats currently what I have.

    But its getting close to the end of its life, so will probably end up buying a PS4 and then buying Dark Souls II again.

    How are the dedicated servers going to have an impact on sales numbers?  Will North American players only be on North American servers, separate from Europe and Japan?  I noticed that NA sales numbers of Xbox and PS3 are neck and neck, and I'm expecting a rise in Xbox players in March.

    I believe I read (here most likely) that it was stated the servers would not be region locked.

    so you're going for graphics?. Because if its still through windows live, and its on the pc so hacking is all kinds of simple by comparison (and will likely happen much sooner,) combined with a most likely smaller player base, it doesn't seem optimal, unless graphics are the only consideration.

    The PC community is smaller for a handful of reasons that are mostly being rectified, while it may not grow to the size of the PS3 community it should be far more substantial than it is now

    It being made with PC being the leading platform means it wont be a terrible port, the fact that this port was so bad at launch dissuaded a large number of people who then never looked back when this was fixed (to a degree) via mods such as dsfix and it wont be using GFWL (and DkS1 should be off of that within the next year as well, since GFWL will cease to be)

    Coupled with the fact that on a pc you not only have things like improved graphics (which means little to me) but faster load times and more stable framerates (assuming you have a capable machine) I have no doubt the pc version will be the "best" from an objective and technical standpoint, not to mention the larger degree of controller options

    also being on pc means there's the possibility of a modding community, which has the potential to fix any glaring flaws with the game should they exist (look at the pc port of DkS1) or simply clean up the UI for those who want things tweaked

    PC no doubt.

    Some of the mods that have come out for DS1 are pretty awesome. And that's just a port of the game.

    Being as this one will have a PC catered version, the possibilities are much wider. On top of that, as someone else said, the PC will always be able to out perform a console.

    PS3 since that's what I have that can run it. If I could choose between PC & PS3 I'd probably go first with PS3 anyways out of habit then wait for PC sale. Never owned a Xbox and likely won't.

    Lot of people on PC turned the game down because of the lack of resolution and other graphical settings, so there is bound to be more people playing on the sequel + possibly way bigger modding community which cannot be a reality on consoles.

    Oh yeah, and Microsoft is shutting down Games For Windows Live (somewhere early next year if I remember right) so no need to worry about that either.

    Then there is also reasons like easier/cheaper streaming, but those are more of my personal reasons...and of course the game itself is cheaper on PC than on consoles if that means anything to anyone.

    PS3 mainly because the community, from what I've been told, is much larger in size then on the PC and because I've already decided that I'm not moving to any other platform. silly

    The game will run at 60fps on PC and 30fps on consoles, this time consoles are being ported not the PC. GFWL is dead, Pc version will most likely use Steamworks, and with dedicated servers, hackers will be much less encountered than DaS.
